While convenient, this isn’t something that happens a lot, not really. There are people who belong together, who love each other and either eventually become BFFs, or they are “just” significant others or spouses.
It’s a lucky few who actually connect with one person on a platonic level, set up camp in their personal bubble, put down roots in their veins, and then advance to a more emotional, and possibly physical, level. With new achievements to unlock, there’s no shortage of surprises, no chance of boredom here.
Many best friends are soul mates. But soul mates aren’t necessarily lovers. When your best friend and soul mate are one in the same, and that spark—you know the one—when that spark happens between you, it’s the best thing ever to happen since Godiva chocolate. This is one person who knows you inside and out, has seen you at your worst and sticks around, sees you at your best and isn’t threatened or intimidated, but proud. This person knows how you put off doing the laundry until you’re completely out of clean underwear. This person knows how specific you are when you add cream to your coffee. This person knows what you are saying when you aren’t saying anything. This is the one person to whom you are tethered as you live your life. Though you may be separate, you are still together.
To some, falling in love with your best friend seems easy, boring, or like settling.
It can be just as difficult and exciting as falling in love at first sight, or with someone completely new to your world. There is definitely no settling going on. The two friends are drawn to one another, and when the Universe/Mother Nature/Cupid/Venus/Whoever Is In Charge deems they are ready, the seeds are planted. These two friends choose to change their relationship, they choose to make it more than what they have. They choose each other.
You can’t choose who you love (that’s for your heart to decide), but you can choose who you spend your life with. And if this person is your best friend, your soul mate, and your love, you are one of the lucky ones.
