Your mom needs help with the household work, it is not like you can hire help. You have to get married!

These are some of the lamest reasons people have given me, asking me to get married. What lame reasons have people given you for getting married? Comment Below!

Hey Cherry, can you please get me a cappuccino from Starbucks on your way back from the salon?

Cherry- Sure, why not.

Riya, can you please lend me the black dress that you wore on your date last week?

Riya- Of course, take whatever you want.

Asmita, I need a favour, can you please prepare MOM for today’s discussion as I have to leave early from office.

Asmita- I’ll take care of it, don’t worry at all.

Did you notice any similarity in the conversations above? Yes, all of them answered in the affirmative to questions or requests made to them. Just like Cherry, Riya, and Asmita, several other people who find themselves saying ‘yes’ to people only to regret it later. They have a hard time saying ‘no’ to things they don’t want to do or the tasks that cause them inconvenience. They put other’s needs before them or just hate the thought of hurting other’s feelings by saying ‘no’ for an answer.

But the truth is that it is hard and unfair to spend your entire life pleasing people. In the process, you end up losing yourselves and getting too much on your plate that you hardly get to enjoy the things you love.

Read further to know what happens when you always reply to people’s request in affirmative.
It May Hit Your Self-Esteem

Trying to please others all the time can make you feel miserable. People may only remember or try to get in contact with you when they need a favour and that can take a hit on your self-esteem. You’ll soon realize that you only matter to people as long as you are doing favours to them. That may make you feel worthless, which is not good for your self-esteem.

You May Come Across As a People Pleaser

Saying ‘yes’ to every request can portray you as someone who just wants to please others. People may believe that you have a lot of time in your hand. They would put their own needs first and start believing that your life revolves around pleasing them.

You’ll Feel Lonely

In the process of doing everything for others, you tend to ignore your desires. You are so busy doing things for others that you hardly get any time to fulfill your wants. You may start to think that people like you for what you do for them and never actually try to understand you. That may lead to a feeling of loneliness. That’s where you need to stop and think whether you actually share meaningful relationships with these people. Or are they only using you to get things done?

How cultivating the habit of saying ‘no’ will enable you to be more honest with yourself and others.
It Saves Your Time

Saying no to things that are not important to you will allow you to spend more time on things that are of great value to you. With time on your hands, you can grab the opportunities that come your way and make the most out of life.

Helps Build Real Relationship

Learning the art of saying ‘no’ may make some people in your life feel that you are letting them down. Well, if that’s the attitude, then you surely don’t need these people in your life. For people, who do not feel disappointed with your any and try to understand your situation and want to see you happy are worth keeping in life. Saying no will help you set boundaries that will let your true friends understand that your own needs come first and they are ok with it.

You’ll start to Love Yourself

The constant urge of doing things for others take the energy and concentration away from you that you may channel towards your self-growth and happiness. Saying no to things that you don’t feel like doing will make you feel good about yourself. You will learn to love yourself and self-love is the best form of love that allows people to accept and celebrate themselves.

It’s impossible to make everyone happy and once you realize it life becomes easy. Learn to say no to things which aren’t important. It will open doors for great opportunities in life. It will teach you the importance of self-love, which goes a long way.

When your relationship experiences a stormy phase, who do you turn to?

Do you trust your friends with advice coming from them about your relationship?

The same friends, who haven’t invested in your relationship as much as you have? Or invested in any relationship in general. Do you turn to your “Single Friends” for advice on your relationship? You may want to continue reading further!

We understand why we turn to our friends for everything that stresses us. It’s them we trust the most. And why not? They have been with us through thick & thin. These friends have supported us for everything, they were there when you wanted to woo this partner of yours till today when it’s rocky. But not every time you must go running to them. Friends may be the chosen family but they don’t always need to have an opinion and you don’t have to run to them while your boat’s stuck in sea-storm!

Here are 3 absolutely important reasons why you shouldn’t be taking advice from your Single Friends:

Third Wheeling? Okay! Third Person? No!

Remember when you started this relationship, it was you two. Remember those times when you went on romantic dates, there were only two people in the restaurant. If you recall, those intimate times, it was between you and your partner. Now if you think about all the good times, it has only you two then why to turn to your friends or anyone else for that matter for advice on your relationship. We’re not asking for you to turn against your friends, but asking them for advice is not we would suggest. The relationship you share with your partner includes two people, not your friends. They may speak from experience but no experience equals to what you two have faced in this particular relationship. Nobody else understands your relationship better than you & your partner.

Not All Relationships are the Same

We absolutely get the “experience” part. Your friends might be experienced but it’s you who’s experiencing YOUR relationship. It’s a fact that not all relationships are the same. They haven’t invested in your relationship as much as you have. A relationship is about two people, and it’s only you two who know what goes or what went by. Have the confidence to believe in your gut feelings. Our friends are our definite support system but learn to balance the opinions of other people, be it your friends or family about your relationship with your own.

The Difference Between Need & Want
The Difference Between Need & Want

Sometimes your friends may tell you what you want to hear and not what you need. Our friends don’t want to see us upset, which is why their advice & opinions might be optimistic or rose-tinted. It could be true that whatever they think of your relationship, they might not be able to say it because they don’t want to jeopardize your friendship. It’s you, who needs to understand the difference between what you need to hear and what you want to. Unless you understand this, you wouldn’t be able to work on your relationship the right way.

Here are three main reasons why you should never listen to the “Expert Advice” coming from your single friend. It is your relationship and none of their relationship. Sometimes it’s okay to vent out on friends and get that frustration of your relationship out from your system. It’s true that you must listen to your heart when it comes to your relationship.

Life without any stress is impossible. In today’s world, this problem is cropping up more than it used to be. When you or your partner is stressed – the relationship may go through a tough patch and cause many other emotional damages. What are the possible causes of that stress? Maybe the work-life is loaded with sky-high targets, maybe the finances are not prosperous, maybe there is some health-related issue, etc. The cause of stress can be anything – personal or professional. Being a dutiful lover, you must know certain simple things that can relieve your partner.

Here are a few simple things to do when your partner is stressed. Apply these things and show your care for your lover which will strengthen your bond.

Identify The Signs of Stress:

You are lucky if your partner is an extrovert and shares every single thing happening in his/her life with you readily. But all are not the same. That’s why you need to understand the signs of stress. The change in regular habits is one of the prime signs of a stressful life. Your darling may be facing sleeping issues, there can be a recurring headache, or he/she may be keeping too silent – observe these things minutely to understand the situation. Once you see the changes – you can tackle things better.

Let Them Vent Out:

Sit with your partner and talk with kindness and patience. Let them vent out whatever is going inside their head and heart. Until and unless your partner releases the tension bothering him/her from within – things cannot go normal. That’s why you have to create a situation where he/she can talk without any inhibition. Play an emotional movie so that he/she connects with such a situation and then it will be easier to talk. And while your partner is talking – never ever pass your judgment. Your only job in that situation is to listen carefully and attentively (keep your phone and other distractions away).

Encourage Physical Activity:

You can do some physical activity together like going to a dance class, going for a morning walk or running, or learning sword fighting, etc. These physical activities increase the production of testosterone and that in turn reduces the stress hormone. He/she may or may not talk to you about what lead to stress but one thing is sure that your partner will be able to de-stress. Other ways of increasing testosterone are to encourage him/her to go and meet old friends, attend parties, or have sex.

Talk Calmly & Be Patient:

You have to understand the fact that something important is bothering your partner and that’s why you have to be clam while talking to him/her. You cannot lose your temper, raise your voice, or be adamant in this situation otherwise things will worsen in your relationship which you will lament later. Whatever he/she is asking – just fulfill them and when you cannot – be polite and compassionate in addressing that.

Take Your Partner To a Spa:

You cannot undermine the benefits of a spa session. The massage with aromatherapy oil, the soothing music playing behind, the floral bath, and the whole ambiance of spa relaxes people. The aches in joints, the stress clouding the mind will be erased and the heart will be filled with happiness. Even doctors suggest going for a spa session when life becomes stressful. So, book a day for your partner in the nearby spa centre and let him/her heal.

Plan A Gateway:

Traveling is always a great medicine to handle grave situations of life. The problem that your partner is facing may not be solved with a trip but surely he/she will get a great amount of positive energy to tackle the stress-causing factor. There’s plenty of amazing places in our country to choose from. Take a break from work to be with your partner and plan a gateway from mundane work life.

Give Some Space Too:

Personal space is very important in successful relationships. The simple thing to understand here is that your partner is going through a stressful time and not you – that’s why you can just help him/her from outside. Ultimately, your partner is the one who has to take the final action to come out of that situation. Therefore, give that space to your partner to think and evaluate after you are done with all the above points. Then again some people don’t like to share sorrows or challenges readily with anyone – if your partner falls in this category, then, you should respect that and give the required space.

Friends – the most-watched TV series all across the world will complete its silver jubilee year this September 2019 and officially the makers will celebrate the legendary show. Their celebration has started – as you can see on social media. For the fans of Friends across the world – this is not just another TV show – it is an emotion, a sentiment, a piece of nostalgia. The characters are loved for their golden youth appeal – an appeal that is reluctant to lose its charm over generations. Imagine the youngsters of 1994 who watched that show felt the same excitement which the millennial’s of today’ age feel. I am sure our next generation will also have no problem in connecting with this show.

After this popular show, many groups of friends across length and breadth of the globe were trying to be just one of these characters and maintain a friendship just like these guys – now that’s what you call a successful show.

Joey Tribbiani is the only character who got another show with the name “Joey” post the success of Friends. He is loved for his adorable innocence and his stupid questions can make even the grumpiest person also laugh. All through the show, we saw him try various weird things and win our hearts

Check the list below minutely and if all the traits match with you then you are definitely “The Joey Tribbiani” of your group.

Food Is Life & You Don’t Believe In Sharing That:

Food is everything for you. If the refrigerator is out of order, you will cancel all your appointments and sit back home to finish every item so that they are not wasted. You always make a point to save your food from getting wasted. Sharing food – the very thought appalls you. If you see a packet of food (or pizza box) lying in front of someone’s door or beside the dust bin – you feel no shame in checking if there is food inside it. If it has, you simply take that home and finish it. To you – food is love, food is freedom, and food is also a very big part of your dreams.

No Job Is Misfit for You:

If you feel that no job is small or big for you – then you definitely belong to the Joey group. He is an actor by passion and tries to fit into characters but when he is out of shows or plays, he takes up any job. That job can be of a waiter at the Central Perk coffee shop or just standing in a Casino in Vegas wearing old Roman outfit. As long as it pays your bills – if you are also happy doing any kind of job, then, you have a Joey inside you.

Your Reaction Upon Learning Dirt of Your Friends:

Joey always had the funniest, craziest, and the most memorable expressions when other friends used to reveal their secrets to him. Remember that episode where he finds out Chandler and Monica are seeing each other? If you also have the same way of reacting to your friend’s secrets – you know who you are in your group. And your friends also share the gossips with you – just to see you react!

You Do Anything For Your Friends:

A friend in need is a friend indeed and you live by that phrase. You simply don’t care about anything when you have to save your friends. And you will pick up a fight with the neighbor next door for your friends. You console your friends when they need and like Joey, you can also pee on your friends if that’s the call of the hour.

Your Best Friend Is Your Soulmate:

In the group of friends, Chandler and Joey were the best friends. More than that they were soulmates, to be honest. The place Chandler had in Joey’s mind, heart, and life – was the most special one which he never gave to anyone else (not even to all those girls he dated). Do you feel the same bond with your best friend? Do you look at the chair next to you and feel like ringing him up and share your thoughts when he is not around?

You Are Proud of Who You Are:

You never ever apologize for being yourself even when people think you should. This means you accept the way you are. You know that you are perfect in your own sweet way and this self-confidence is what many people lack.

You Are A True Fashion Guru:

Like Joey do you have great looks and a fit body? Is there hardly any outfit in this world that you cannot pull off? For Joey – from the doctor’s dress of being Dr. Ramorey or the Soldier outfit in the Casino to the properly suited look for Ross’s wedding – Joey rocked in whatever he wore. Also not to forget – the ladies handbag that Joey carried for some time.

Defeat Never Defeats You:

Joey has been chucked out his shows many times, he lost many auditions, he lost many jobs, and many girls left him. But all these setbacks never ever let him go down. He has a funky and cheerful spirit for life. Joey is the strongest of the lot and this trait of him is salute-worthy. That’s why his friends love him so much for his “never say die” attitude. If you also carry the same attitude, you are the Joey of your friend circle.

Every relationship asks for something or the other. And everyone, be it a man or a woman has basic expectations out of their romantic relationship. This question waltz in everyone’s brain when they are in a relationship. “What does he want?” is what every woman seeks an answer to.

This question has been asked by women in the past, today, and it will always be asked in the future too. Reason being no one really knows what they want. But these basic cornerstones to form a healthy or a stable foundation for any relationship is what you could know & keep in mind.

There are times when your relationship gets rocky and you don’t know what went wrong. This is when the question arises, you ask your partner multiple times what do they want and they have no answer. Your partner goes all mum because they really don’t know how to make you understand what they want. Talking about Understanding, let’s start listing the 4 things that a man expects from his relationship (P.s. I assumed this is what they want)

1.  Understanding
Understanding

The basic requirement of any relationship is “mutual understanding.” Men expect their lady to understand them (even if they DON’T). It’s expected out of you that you understand why your man was late to the date night or why hasn’t he answered your calls. But keeping aside the silly reasons, he really expects from you to understand if he had a long tiring day when he’s occupied with a pile of work or anything that requires his attention. He wants you to ‘GET’ him like no one else. And if your partner lacks this cornerstone, the best exercise is to communicate. The more you communicate and share your life experiences, the more it will help your partner to understand you.

2.  Companionship

With a better understanding comes companionship. No one likes to be alone. Similarly, men hate being alone. And when they are with someone they expect to spend time with their partner. On one hand, they want their woman to have meaningful conversations and on the other, they also want to have fun dates with them. They love it when their woman loves or even shows interest in what they love to do. Isn’t it exciting when you have similar interests? And then you decide and plan to hang out doing exactly what you both like? But isn’t it important to indulge and know what you partner likes? Men really appreciate when their woman spends time, let’s say, playing games with them (Mind games aren’t appreciated), watching their favourite Football team play, going out for adventures or whatever that your man likes to do. It’s the same when you like him being around while you splurge on shopping or get your nails done (how sexist, eh?) But yeah, this explains the 2nd cornerstone.

3.  Intimacy
Intimacy

One thing that men really expects or wants from his relationship is intimacy. Quite a lot of men are actually vocal about this topic. Few of them have clear intentions about intimacy, that it is one of the important things in a relationship. But there are a few for whom the relationship revolves around this. For the former part, I’d suggest you stick around and try to learn what & how things evolve to have that intimate relationship. But for the latter, you must pack your bags and leave. Intimacy is a biological need and nobody should be blamed for wanting it. With intimacy, comes a bit BUT (yeah that too, but that’s not the point here). Fulfillment in intimacy is what keeps both happy. It can help them get closer but isn’t the only thing that can keep the relationship last longer. The conclusion is, intimacy is important but isn’t enough. Anyway, it does play a vital role in being the 3rd cornerstone.

4.  Respect
Respect

I know I didn’t start with ‘Respect’ as the first cornerstone, but nevertheless, it’s the most important one. Respect is important for the teenager that just started to experience what a relationship feels like, or for one who had a divorce. Respect is one important cornerstone that builds a relationship stronger, no matter what the relation is. Even a relationship with your pet requires respect (not that I’m comparing your romantic relationship to that). It is for both and not necessarily for men to expect respect out of a relationship. It is required to survive. Men expect that if you allow them to be their selves you’re being respectful to them. If you feel you’re clueless about how to show that you do respect him, here are few ways; don’t judge his thoughts or opinions, don’t make ‘awkward’ gestures when you don’t agree with him, be grateful/thank him for his favors and help.

Practicing these basics can really help your relationship in a healthier way. These are the 4 basic things that I believe men really expect from their relationship. So if you are a man reading this blog, I know you’d agree but if you’re a woman I am with you when it comes to understanding men, just how it’s tough for them to understand “Women”.

And a big thank you if you made it this far while reading this blog. Drop some feedback in the comment section below.

Do you love making her smile? I am sure that her smile brightens up your day, and knowing that beautiful smile is because of you is one of the greatest feelings in the world. At times making her smile might be easy, but at times it will be really difficult to turn that frown upside down. Well, that’s what you think! It is very easy to make her smile. It’s not about the big romantic gestures you do but about those little things you do without realizing things which make her feel like you care, and things which she finds adorable.

  1. Asking Her How Is She Doing?

    You may not realize this but you’ve stopped asking her, and that is bound to happen. You talk to her every day, and it is not like you don’t know what’s happening. If there is something wrong, she will tell you, you don’t have to ask her this question formally. At times, she needs to feel like you care. Maybe she was feeling a little low last night when you do ask the next morning “How are you feeling now?”

Trust me, even if she was feeling low, this will uplift her mood.

  1. Send Her a Voice Note

    You might be busy and do not have time to write a text, so you decide to send a voice note. Well, listening to your voice makes her smile. This makes her feel like you’re taking efforts and makes her feel special.

  2. Mid-Day Calls

    You may call her at night when you’re free and have time for her. It is okay to do so, but when you call her in the middle of a busy day just to tell her that you love her, it will make her beam with joy. Even if it is for a minute, it will make her feel important.

  3. When You Get Jealous

    She just came back from the party and starts telling you all about it. She tells you about her friends and then tells you about her guy friends, that little jealousy you have makes her smile. It makes her feel like you value her, and are afraid to lose her. Off course not being extremely jealous but a little jealous.

  4. Share Things with Her

    When we go through problems, we share it with our partners. When you do share your problems with her, she not only tries her best to solve them but feels happy. She feels happy that you trust her enough to share things with her. She feels happy that you consider her as an important part of her life, hence your problems are not a burden for her.

  5. Respect Her Choices

    Be a gentleman, and value her point of view. When you do that, she feels respected and valued. Make her feel like your equal, and she will be happy in true sense.

  6. Send Her Songs

    You’re listening to a song, and it suddenly reminds you of her. Maybe because of the lyrics, or the music but it just reminds you of her. Send her the song, it will make her smile like a fool. She knows that you think about her, and makes her feel secure.

  7. Send Her a Text Telling Her How You Feel

    You don’t have to send a long text with fancy words but simple words telling her how you feel. This makes her feel super special, and even a single line telling her how you feel makes her more special than a 3-page essay. You just need to be true.

  8. Honest Opinion over a Sugar Coated One

    No matter what she says, she loves to hear the truth. This makes her feel that no matter what it is, you will tell her the truth and won’t cheat her because you are not someone who lies. She will always seek your advice because she knows it is genuine.

  9. When You Explain a Sport You Love

    Almost every guy does it! She may not even know the basic rules of football, but when you explain it to her, she loves it. It makes her feel included and honestly the glow in your eyes make her feel happy.

  10. When You Do Silly Things to Get Her Attention

    She may have been busy or angry at you, and you start acting silly just to make her smile or grab her attention. She likes it. You’re taking efforts and she likes it.

  11. When You Remember Something She Told You

    Maybe you got her favorite chocolate or ask her how was her presentation at work? You remember something she told you, and you remember it. This is incredibly adorable to her.

You don’t have to make grand gestures to make her smile, but small things which do not take any time. What do you do, which makes her smile? Comment and let us know!

An incredibly genius director sketches this whole incident. Srijit Mukherjee’s tight direction and the nuanced performances of Sara & Jisshu Sengupta will fill your minds for sure. Uma is based on the true story of the Canadian cancer victim Evan Leversage, also known as “The Boy Who Moved Christmas” in the media after his hometown staged a Christmas celebration two months before December in 2015 for him.

Bicycle Thieves falls in the category of Pather Panchali. Since its release in 1948, this classic Italian movie is remembered worldwide for its simplicity, innocence, and straightforwardness. Directed by Vittorio De Sica, this movie is still a textbook for film students and enthusiasts. The story is about a poor father searching for his stolen bicycle post –World War II in Rome. Because without the bicycle he will lose the job and that will lead his family to starve.

We all know at least one or many (in some cases) blockhead in our lives. It gets worse if any of you have fallen for one. It’s after a while, that we girls start to notice the red flags billowed by this nutcase (all sorts of synonyms for you know what sort of “Boys”). In this blog, I’m going to talk about the 5 typical types of these “Nutcases” we come across in our course of dating period. Taylor Swift’s I Knew You Were Trouble When You Walked In” is all about such commitment fearing boys. There are more terms to define them, we’ll read them as we proceed. They’re plenty of boys who you might know or have dated whose behavior is Double Dutch to you now.

Boys, don’t fret if you fall into one of these categories—we are humans, we can stoop down to different levels! Be glad that you made to someone’s list, be even happier if you’re on the top! But no offense, recognition is the first step towards change. As quoted by William Shakespeare “I will find you twenty lascivious turtles ere one chaste man”. 403 years later, nothing really has changed, you will have to date 20 douche bags to win that one perfect man.

The types of “I knew you were trouble…..” guys are commonly, globally known as F***Boys, which is why the title…
Introduction

Now there are numerous definitions for this term, Urban Dictionary says “F***boys know what girls want to hear but they hurt so many girls. While doing my research for this blog (Yes I did research on them. Imagine my life, like having met them wasn’t enough!), I came across the term “F***Boy Syndrome”. Which means an incurable disease that leads to perpetual immaturity and disrespect towards most women. Common symptoms may include but are not limited to: no communication skills, living in their mother’s basement, never-ending weed smoking, no job, constant GTA playing, and refusal to grow up and act like the adult that they should be. This pretty much sums up why are exes used to behave in a certain manner. Hope they all get well soon!

Too much said, let’s look at the types now:

Warning: You may experience nostalgia or Déjà vu!
1.   The One who’s Faux-Gentleman

How to spot the one pretending to be the “Gentleman” is he’ll have chiseled face, well-groomed beard, waxed chest, abs popping out from his tucked in shirt. Who wouldn’t drool over such a good looking man? This man is too hot to handle, his Instagram famous-self flourishes with the attention he gets from girls. You’ll find him clicking macho face selfies, or making hookah (Vape) videos in the corner of a club, or getting clicked with some of his female friend curled up in his arms. This Gentleman is well not so gentle and would definitely drop you when things get real. He’s in a constant search of that Instagram-worthy beauty because otherwise, his relationship won’t have a point. He spends most of his hours building that body but can someone let him know to strengthen his ego? Because darling, why get offended so easily!

2.   The One who’s a Pseudo-Lover

Have you been hearing “I love you” more than the times you breathe? Dump Him before he goes on planning your future kids’ names as well or eventually vanishes. It’s easy to spot these because all they can do is lie to your face. And you’ll get the vibes too! They’ll fall in love with you within two months, would let their friends know they’re dating someone, like the perfect guy. You wouldn’t once think if he’s lying, but one day you’ll get to know there’s much more to his super-chivalrous gestures! He’ll be emotionally unavailable! Conversations elicit fear inside them, fear of “what if she gets serious?” Dude, you were the one going gaga over my soul!

You’ll be surprised, they won’t even have any reason for this detachment. Next, you know is he’s ‘wifey-ing’, ‘baby’, ‘boo’- ing someone else! Oh, he also warns you about him ending his life for you if you won’t say yes to him! Like “yes, please go ahead! Cut those nerves, slit your neck, and stop that ugly heart from beating!” (One less Fboy in the crowd. Yay!)

3.   The One who’s a Ghoster

The term GHOSTER isn’t about the guy ghosting on you, well that’s one point we can say which is actually correct. But let’s mention the ghosts who want to control your life, like an evil spirit. He may think of you as a possession. Such guys desire to control in their life. Beware, because he doesn’t acknowledge you as a woman, for him you are an easy target. Get out of it before it gets out of hand.

4.   The One who’s a Chaser

He’ll be a chaser until you fall for him! Chaser guys would chase you until they get the required attention and god knows what joy they get. Maybe it’s like feeding his male ego, of making a woman falling in love with his disgusted soul & ugly heart! He’ll pretend to be The One you always wished for, says the right things at the right time, treats you well but drops you like a brick. (Hit his head with the same brick) His mission’s accomplished when you fall in love with him and after some time he’ll just leave! Don’t let your dreams of being with The One come crashing down!

5.   The One who’s Needy AF

Oh! We know these ones too well! All they want is some action! And to make it more “Exciting” (for him) he’ll send a picture of his genitals. C’mon, who needs a conversation with him?! Don’t let yourself get fooled by such needy & greedy douchebags. They’re all over the internet! Guys who do such ill exhibitionism, are well aware of not being able to impress women, so let’s just scare them off! Eww!

Okay, frankly they’re all Greek to me. All the Fboys got more excuses than you can count, don’t be ho to his boat. You deserve much more than someone trying (Literally) to be just there for his own good. Patience is truly a key to something worthy. Wait for your right person, you’ll eventually know if he’s worth it. He might resemble some of the types but the one meant for you, won’t change over time.

Friendship is a relation that we develop out of choice and something which is not provided to us. Finding someone with whom we can share our secrets, joy, and sorrow is priceless.

A best friend is someone who accepts us for who we are and respects our choices without any judgment. And if you have a great friendship with someone from the opposite sex, it’s an added advantage. Apart from having someone who understands you, there is a great opportunity to explore more about both genders.

But with opposite-sex friendships, there’s always a fine line between loving your friend and falling in love with them. Well, the feelings can be really intense in the latter scenario and you may not know how to exactly deal with them. So, here are some tips to help you decide your next step in such a scenario:

Analyze Your Feelings

Sit. Relax. Think. It is also possible that you may be just infatuated to your best friend and mistaken it for love. So, think about your feelings just to make sure if it is actually love or you are just being emotional or it is just a passing phase of your life. It may be possible that you are jumping to conclusions based on some momentary reactions. Like, your friend was looking hot one night, and suddenly you started drooling all over them. Because in that case, it is just a feeling and not actually love.

Don’t Drop the Bomb on Them

We know it’s hard to keep your feelings when you’re in love. But make sure you don’t scream at the top of your lungs to declare your love for your friend. If you have made the choice to tell them how you really feel, then wait for the right time to talk about it. Probably when you two are alone and spending time together. Start showing your affection in sweet little gestures and then observe how your friend reacts to it.

Be Honest About Your Feelings

If your friend responds to your gestures and feelings, then be honest to acknowledge your feelings. Sit and talk about how you feel for them and want something more than the friendship you two share. Without actually destroying the friendship that is the very foundation of your relationship. There may be confusions in the beginning, but if you two are really good friends who understand each other, then the wind will definitely clear in a while.

Respect Their Response

If your friend lets you know that the feelings are not mutual and they do not see you as anything other than a friend, then respect their decision. Don’t be pushy or try to convince them to be in a love relationship with you. It may ruin your friendship. There is someone waiting for you. You just need to wait for the right time. If their response is positive and things are great, then work towards building a loving relationship that doesn’t come on your way of friendship. Always remember you are friends first and then lovers!  And let it nurture your relationship.

Falling in love with your best friend can be a blessing or a curse. If you ever end up in this situation, then count your blessings, analyze the risks involved and take your decision wisely.
