With your BFF as your romantic partner, you get the best of both worlds, someone with whom you can laugh, share your life and cuddle.
IF YOU DON'T LIKE HIM "THAT WAY": No more flirting, teasing, or late night calls. If he doesn't and he makes a move on you, say, "I'm sorry if I gave the impression I was interested in being more than friends." He'll be bummed, but it's better than stringing him along and possibly losing his friendship.
Being someone’s BFF is a big deal – you don’t hand over the other half of your “Best Friends” necklace to just anyone.
There's never not a time he doesn't want to hear from you — no matter how ridiculous your Look-I'm-Eating-A-Sandwich! Even when you're not looking or feeling your best, you know your boyfriend will never judge you based on your appearance.

Whether it's an interesting article or an “I'm bored” Snapchat, your boyfriend is the first person on the receiving list.
Even when you feel like you're totally harassing him with silly Internet findings, he always wants to be bothered by you.
The answer is easy: you step in and do whatever it takes to break them up. Okay, we know that answer won’t win the million-dollar prize.
