Maybe it’s because “When Harry Met Sally”is my favorite romantic comedy of all time. Or, maybe it’s because my own parents started off as best friends. (Yeah, guys, I would not exist if friendships could not turn into romance eventually.)

Or, maybe it’s because Jim and Pam and Monica and Chandler are tied for my two favorite TV couples of all time. Or, maybe it’s because I have a lot of guy friendsI wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole. Plus, the concept of not having that type of repulsion in a relationship is extremely foreign and fascinating to me.

Whatever the psychological reasoning may be, I have always been a sucker for a good love story about a couple who started off as friends, especially when it’s a celebrity couple. Like, the concept of these two insanely good-looking people just being “friends” and then deciding they should date is just too much for me too handle. I go nuts over these stories.

So, in honor of National Best Friends Day, let’s take a look at these nine celebrity couples whose relationships actually started off as good old-fashioned, platonic friendships.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

The twobecame close friends on the set of their hit show, “That ’70s Show” in 1998. They stayed friends for 14 (yes, that’s right, 14) years until they started dating in 2012. Theyeventually married in July of 2015.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West

In 2012, Kanye released his track, “Theraflu,”featuring the lyrics, “And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim, ’round the same time she had fell in love wit’ him.” Kim responded in a Today Show interview,“Kanye and I have been friends for years, and you never know what the future holds or where my life will take me. I like the song.” Shortly after, they were dating.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

The couple, now married with one child and one on the way, originally met on the set of the “The Green Lantern.”where they quickly became close friends.In an interview with Entertainment Weekly’s Sirius XM, Reynolds talked about the moment their friendship took a turn:

We were buddies then. I remember it was funny because for about a year after ‘Green Lantern’ had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single.

This is right around when their lives turned into a scene from “When Harry Met Sally”:

We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl. That was the most awkward date probably because we were just like fireworks coming across.

And the rest is history.

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren

In an interview for the February 2013 issue of InStyle, Alba admitted that before they dated and eventually wed, she and Warren spent a “very, very, very short” time as friends.

Beyonc and Jay Z

The power couple might be in some hot water right now, but long before there were any lemons to be made into lemonade, Bey and Jay were just friends. In a 2008 interview with Seventeen, she explained,“I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started dating. That’s a whole year of friendship for these two complicated love birds.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton

Long before these two embarked upon the most high-profile, mutual rebound relationship of all time, they were just friends,palling around on the set of “The Voice.”

Bella Thorne and Gregg Sulkin

These two were friends for six years before getting hot and heavy last summer.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith

Well before their 1997 wedding, Will and Jada were just friends. The two met on the set of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” where Jada auditioned for the role of Will’s girlfriend. Although she didn’t get the part, the two remained friends. She explained how things took a turn:

After we had known each other for many years, we went out for dinner one night [with mutual friends], and I saw that he had grown from this lanky kid to this really responsible man. We started courting each other and our friendship turned into romance.

Kate Middleton and Prince William

Long before their royal romance, the two met through mutual friends before both enrolling at St. Andrews in Scotland, where their friendship and eventual relationship blossomed.

Capricorn women will always be the bad b*tches.

Kate Middleton, Kate Moss, Michelle Obama and Mary J. Blige can back me up on this one.

The Capricorn woman is confident, to say the least. If you find yourself dating one, know she won’t stand for any games.

You’ll know her when you see her. Still, you won’t be able to date her until you understand her sign.

She has a no-bullsh*t personality.

Capricorns are an earth sign. This woman has a no-bullsh*t attitude, so she’s attracted to the realness in others.

She’s a born planner, keeping herself organized and ready to take the lead. Getting sh*t done the right way is easy for her.

Many Caps come off as emotionless. In reality, theyre just shy.

She’s always dressed for the occasion and can make even a paper bag look like a Versace dress.

Shes the life of every party and doesnt need to be the center of attention in order for you to know it.

She’s a workaholic, but she won’t flaunt her achievements.

The Capricorn women is career-focused.

It’s not just on the job, either. She’s passionate about everything she does.

She might be a perfectionist, so she’s probably her own worst critic.

Capricorn women are more than often very humble about their achievements. You dont necessarily need to be on her level, but you most definitely have to respect it.

She makes bank, but she’ll never overspend.

A Capricorn woman always keeps her goals in check.

Shes dedicated to her work and is an all around bread winner.

But, you wont hear her gloating about her success, or see her spending money frivolously.

Every penny earned is carefully saved and put towards her future.

She’ll be fiercely loyal, but don’t dare take her for granted.

When it comes to relationships, a Capricorn woman will always be faithful. But, she won’t open her heart to just anyone.

She needs someone who wont be intimidated by her success. Being in a relationship with a Capricorn is all about teamwork.

She loves a sense of humor and someone whos just as real as she is.

As emotionally guarded as she can be, she’ll love you eternally and expect you to do the same for her.

If you ever dare turn on a Capricorn, youre going to have to do a lot legwork to gain back her respect. She may forgive you, but her trust will be lost for good.

She knows how to please you in bed, but you’d better be willing to reciprocate.

In bed, pleasure is her middle name.

She’s very keen to understand the best ways to arouse her partner.

Still, she wont give anything she isn’t receiving. If you’re pleasing her the way you should, she’ll worship the ground you walk on.

She’s a simple girl who will always remember the little things. At the end of the day, she’s driven by passion and love.

Ill admit it. Women can be complicated, but for every complicated woman out there, theres a man whos too simple for his own good so simple that hes COMPLETELY missing a womans blatant signals that shes flirting with him.

Take these men who responded to a recent Reddit thread, for example.

The prompt asked them to share stories of times a woman was coming onto them, and they didnt realize it, and their responses are, well theyre pretty freaking cringeworthy.

Read along for yourself as these guys share the painfully awkward tales of times girls were essentiallythemselves at them, and they had literally no idea:

She showed him her clit piercing, and he thought it was just NBD.

She showed me her clit piercing. She was hot as fuck. I was not an ugly “so cute” dummy either, just plain dumb and stupid apparently.


She talked to him for MONTHS, and he just let it fizzle.

Couple months back i had started talking to this girl who was literally everything i would have liked in a girl and as the months rolled by we got closer and eventually it kinda stopped . just last week i was talking to out mutual friends and they all spent an hour roasting the fact that i didnt realize she was into me while i mentally time travelled and beat my past selft in the face for being so blind .


She slyly suggested they grab some condoms, and it completely went over his head.

Went to the University health center together. Like all University health centers, there was a box of condoms near the entrance. I was about to go to the reception when my crush went over to the condoms, grabbed a couple and says, “Hmm what’s this, they look interesting.” And proceeded to keep looking at the condoms and me back and forth for about 5 times. We’re quite close so I thought she was fucking with me and due to my low self-esteem I didn’t think she ‘liked’ me. I looked at her funny and said, “Those are condoms, now come on let’s go talk to the receptionist.”

Everything was normal, after finishing we walked back to our dorm together and talked. We were quite close so I didn’t think about it much until the holidays hit because I’m a dense cunt who is clueless.

The end.


She told him she loved him MULTIPLE times, and he didnt think anything of it until years later.

This was more than just flirting, but still counts.

During the summer between the end of middle school and the beginning of high school, I FINALLY realized that this girl liked me as more than a friend. Flirting with me since 6th grade, kissing me in 7th grade, telling me she loved me multiple times. all of that somehow flew over my head. What did I do? Like a nervous wreck I waited way too long to ask her out to homecoming. She was already asked by someone else.


She gave him her number, and he didnt even think to use it.

Grade 11 was ending and it was that time of year when everyone writes in everyone else’s yearbooks. Pretty girl I was friends with wrote “Hope your summer isn’t too boring!” along with her phone number.

Never even gave it a thought until at least a year later. Criiiiinge.


She kissed him multiple times, and he thought she was just being friendly.

About a year ago these doctors I used to live with were in the area for a conference. We hung out in a hotel lobby, played a few songs, some of their colleagues and former students joined us for dinner. One of the women liked my singing and we talked a bit.

After the dinner everyone besides her and I went back to their hotels, she asked if I wanted to get a drink. We wandered the city, found a bar across the river, talked for a while and she paid the tab.

We left the place, she opens the uber app, we say goodbye and she kisses me. I’m taken aback, but she says it’s just a goodbye kiss or something along those lines.

Then her “phone dies” (I see her press the power button), she asks if I can get her a ride. I comply, and as it shows up she kisses me again, tells me I’m beautiful, and the uber driver waits for a few prolonged moments with me outside before taking her to her hotel, never to be seen again.

Later I’m headed home in an uber, tell my driver about the ordeal, and she says I’m an idiot.

In my defense I did suspect something the first time she kissed me, but I was just so confused by the whole situation.


She stuck around during a BOMB THREAT just to hang out with him, and he still wasnt sure if it meant anything.

I used to go to a community college. One day in my last class, in the after noon there was a bomb threat on a bus near the college. Some lunatic said he had a bomb in his wheelchair so the entire city freaked out, and of course the college went on super lock down. Armed security barricaded the doors, the whole 9 yards, students are sobbing, really tense shit.

Anyway, there was this girl in the class who sat behind me who I kinda thought may have liked me but wasn’t sure, so I did nothing. She use to laugh when the teacher (who I was pals with) would rib on me. Like “look how red Goatsonice’s cheeks are today!” and the girl would bust out laughing. Anyway, I digress, the threat is finally called off, my dad had to come get me, and he was a long way away at work, so i had to wait. So I just sat in the class room, and slowly students trickled out, the traffic in the parking lot was a nightmare because it had been like 4 hours and then everyone left at once.

Finally it was just me and this girl in the room, I thought “why is she staying?”, she had a car, the parking lot was now empty, she waited with me for like 2 hours after everyone had left just talking to me. The one thing that kept me from going for it was she was pretty damn Catholic, and she really liked that I was born/raised Catholic, oh well.

She might have been into me idk.


She told him he was beautiful, and he walked away.

Posted this before but it fits:

I’m walking through a club and a girl stops me to chat.

Girl: “Hi, you’re beautiful.”

Me: “Uh, I am?”

Her friend: “You are a beautiful man.”

Me “Um, thanks.”

Awkward small talk for a few minutes before I leave to go the bar

Me, a week later: “That girl might have been into me”


She told him he was the cutest boy in their class, and it took him three years to realize that meant something.

In high school, there was this girl in my spanish class that blatantly told me that I was the cutest boy in the class in front of the guy friends that I sit with. She would also be pretty happy when I talked to her.

3 years later i’m a sophomore in college and I realized I should have talked to her about this because i’m never going to meet another women that was confident like that.


She was asking all sorts of questions about his hip-hop group and he just gave her his instructors info.

So I was on an adult beginner hip-hop dance crew when I lived in Houston nice little weekend activity that kept me in shape and got me in touch with cool people to hang out with.

Got to chatting with the girl who was cutting my hair one time and talked about the team, and she seemed really interested started asking when they offered classes, which ones I went to, etc. She even fucking asked for my number so I could give her more info.

My response? “Here, let me actually give you my instructor’s information she’d be able to tell you way more about it.”

I still cringe when I think about that, but at the same time it’s nice to learn I’m single.


Yeah, I really hope youre cringing as hard as I am right now.
