If you're looking for a major, giant, neon flashing sign that you belong together, this is as good as any.

You've had relationships that didn't last because of how close you and your best friend are.

There was a time when you were into them, but they were with someone.

But it's nice to know that if you did start dating your best friend, they'll just slide right into family gatherings and skip right past the awkward "meet my family" stage. You've thought about dating them before, then they thought of dating you, but things never lined up right.

I recently moved to a new place, and I have no friends.

“Having no friends” is the sort of thing you want to add a dozen disclaimers to, because it sounds so sad.Call it jealousy, but you just get a twinge of annoyance whenever you see them with someone else. You always find something wrong with everyone they're into. It’s her life to live and she’s in control of her happiness. If she chooses to stay with that sorry excuse for a man, don’t judge her.She obviously believes she sees something you don’t. Even if you warned her, it’s your job to be there if/when it all falls apart. People can be pretty sensitive when it comes to their relationships.Sadder than the loneliness — which is not that bad, really — is the sadness of saying it!
