When you're really closed friends with someone it's super easy to blurt out, "Yeah, I love them!" without it meaning a whole hell of a lot. But sometimes, most times, when you're friends with someone you're attracted to - one of you catches feelings. Feelings so strong they might result in you falling in love.
Of course, we're not saying every friendship is going to lead to romance. But a lot of them do. And sometimes it's hard to decide whether or not to risk your relationship for something more. These are some signs as to whether or not you're falling in love with your friend. Or, if you're with someone already, take these as signs that you and your S/O are really falling in love!
1. You get super jealous when they start seeing someone.
Not that your friend doesn't have good taste but there's obviously someone cooler, smarter, funnier and better looking who happens to be in their life already *cough cough*.
2. You want to spend all your free time with them
When you're not actually hanging out, you're texting. Or Face-Timing. Or making plans to hang out on your lunch break, because that's the only time you can see them until the weekend. They're just the most fun and you want to be around them all the time, duh.
3. You would do anything for them
Seriously, you know you're a good friend but for this friend? You'd drive them to the airport. Help them move. Come with them to a funeral. Do the most mundane, weird, extra tasks for them, with them, because they mean the world to you.
4. Everyone you've ever dated sucks compares to them
FACTS. Whenever you meet someone new or think about someone from your past, they can't touch your bae. I mean bestie. But bae, too.
5. It's not a normal day if you haven't talked or texted
Woah wtf 12:32pm and you guys haven't texted??? I mean, it's not like it's a big deal but it's not a small deal either. You guys are super integrated in each others lives so it's just not like you to not talk or text in the morning.
6. People mistake you for a couple all the time
Wow why would people think you're together? You're just always together IRL, on Instagram, on each other's phones and you talk about them all the damn time but??? That's a crazy assumption??
7. You always find a way to touch them 'accidentally'
Whether it's a simple hand brush or doing some weird intricate handshake that allows you to hold their hand for 40 glorious seconds, you just like feeling the sparks.
8. You'd rather hangout with them than go on a date
Because pizza is love and couch is life and hanging out with your 'not' bf just sounds better than going out into the real world.
9. You get butterflies when you hear, see or think of them
Followed by a stupid laugh to yourself and 3-metre long smile.

10. Their feelings are your feelings
Seriously, there's no better feeling than seeing them happy but you're also devastated when something upsets them.
11. They're the first person you want to tell everything to
You know that they want to hear it and there's no one else you want to share amazing things with.
12. You can open up to them
Especially on shitty days, because you trust them and know that they're there for you.
13. You always try to look your best around them
Haha but casual, effortless sexy. Not 'I'm-trying-really-hard' to look sexy. You're just friends, after all! Ha!
14. Their social medias show up in your browser history
Because you always want to check up on them. Because you love them, admit it!!
15. You always think about that 'someday' you could end up together
Like when they break-up with their trash-bag girlfriend. Or if you could just make a move and actually attempt to date them one day. Friends don't do this, btw.
16. There's no one you trust more
If you really trust this person, trust them with the truth!! Friggen tell them how you feel and try to make things work. As long as you keep things open/honest/respectful you have literally nothing to lose. Why not give it a chance?!
