Dating a friend can be a great experience — and often, that friendship is the perfect foundation for a healthy relationship. But sometimes it can feel awkward and you can realize that your friendship chemistry just isnt the same as romantic chemistry.
Is it okay to date a friend of a friend?
Dating within a friend group will certainly change the dynamic of the group, dating coach Erika Ettin tells Elite Daily. Whether thats for better or worse is really something no one can know until it happens. Of course, there isnt anything inherently wrong with dating someone in your friend group.
Do just friends cuddle?
There are exceptions, and some friends cuddle with each other. Even so, its seen as a bit unusual for two people of the opposite sex to cuddle with each other if there are no romantic feelings involved. You might hear differently from someone who feels its a natural way to express platonic affection, though.
