Friendzone is a big deal these days and so it’s common to have friends of the opposite sex being together and never dating although they may have feelings for each other.

This got us curious and so we decided to ask our community whether they’ll date their male or female best friend and the responses were obvious, most will gladly do so.

Check out some of the responses we got for this question below.


1. Word!!!

I don’t know how a man and a woman can be bestfriends without having feeling for eachother. Aanyaa one will trip.
If you’re in a relationship ,Your man/woman should be your best friend.
I think it’s best to date your best friend provided you can handle his/her flaws

4. Not a good idea.

Best friend? After sharing all my flaws and secrets with her then I date her? She gonna use it against you someday. It’s better to date someone else than your bestie.

7. Truth.

Dating with the intention/clear cut agenda/goal of marrying? YES! Charley life is not that simple there will be ups and downs…. It is wise to be with someone who will stick with you (regardless of ur weakness and strengths) through thick and thin…

If you attempt to date her, which is actually sinless and beautiful, you might loose your friendship. From experience paaa!

9. This guy paaa…

No I would not date my best friend. She and I will be too happy together. I do not function well if I am too happy. But I will not mind chopping her periodically.

11. Best friends are the best.

Best friends are priceless gifts… They are not part of your Periodic friends. Mostly, IN as much as they were just friends sometime ago, they did something extra ordinary to attain that position as a BEST FRIEND in your life. So if you and society norms accept you and your best friend to be together as partners, trust me, that is the best thing you can ever imagine..

12. If you both love each other, why not.

If your best friend loves u and the vice-versa is true, why not? Some of them don’t work out well but we all know not all relationships must work as planned; whether best friend or enemy or stranger lol. I heard it is the best kraa.

13. The distin dey sweet boys too much.

I don’t believe in friendship between a man and a woman. It’s like having a chicken as a pet. One day one day, you will end up chewing it.
