Let us tell you about Paano Na Kaya, that 2010 film starring Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu. We don't suppose a lot of you have actually seen it—or at least would admit you did. Well, this movie is a great reminder that maybe Ms. Right has been standing next to you all along, making you laugh and listening to your heartbreaks. Maybe the girl you're meant to be with is not the one you're dating, but the one giving you dating advice. And we are being a total cornball here because, hey, it really happens IRL.

Maybe you too have a girl BFF (plus points if she actually looks like Kim Chiu). Maybe you're also probably thinking that it isn't a good idea to hook up with her, afraid you might mess up the friendship. But how will you know if you guys would make a great couple if you never try? Destiny? LOL.

We say just do it—talk about taking it to the next level—and do it now. Otherwise you’re missing on these awesome perks of dating your best friend…


1)   YOU CAN BE YOURSELF AROUND HER

You get to skip the awkward getting-to-know each other stage, forget about dressing to impress as well as worry about what you're saying and how often you need to call and text. All you need to do is be yourself. Oh how she likes it when you pick your nose!

2)   SHE HAS SEEN YOU AT YOUR WORST AND DIDN'T LEAVE YOU

Sometimes life is just unfair and whether you like it or not, you have to deal with it. Your BFF has been with you all those days and never left you. So, expect that when trials come your way as a couple, she'll hang on.

3)   YOU KNOW EACH OTHER'S DATING HISTORY

You've told each other everything about your past relationships. You've met her exes and she has met yours. Jealousy and insecurities about your past loves won't be a thing.

4)   YOU KNOW EACH OTHER'S RELATIONSHIP PET PEEVES

Before you dated, you'd run into each other and rant about your now exes. You know what to and what not to do to keep each other happy and content.

5)   YOU DON'T HAVE TO TRY TOO HARD

You don't have to spend a thousand for your date. A simple movie night in your house can pass for the perfect date night. She won't mind if you're just in a pair of shorts and a tattered sando—and you won't mind if she wears less than that either.

6)   SHE GETS EXCITED AT THE THINGS THAT EXCITE YOU

You can hardcore geek about things and never worry about being judged by your partner. She also loves those things.

7)   NO "FRIENDS VS. GIRLFRIEND" SCENARIO

Chances are, your friends are her friends, and her friends are your friends. They will probably give you a questionable look at first but truth is, they are happy for you.

8)   MEETING HER FOLKS ISN'T THAT SCARY

Coming face to face with the girlfriend's parents is always scariest part of new relationships. But because you're dating your longtime girl friend, her parents most likely know you, and won't bother to ask you unnerving questions. You've earned their trust. So congrats, you sneaky bastard!
