Sometimes you can't deny your feelings any longer. The most beautiful relationships are often kickstarted by a great friendship. Being in love with your best friend can either strengthen or break your heart. 

These characters have gone through hell and back but still chose to take an extra mile and upgrade their friendship to the next level.

Here are few friendships that got an upgrade: 

The Mindy Project
7.6OTTplay Rating
If you ever see two characters who are friends, co-workers and share great chemistry, you can bet they won’t be friends for long! Such is the case for these two leads from The Mindy Project. During the show’s first season, the titular OBGYN searched for love while trying to ignore the spark she shared with her co-worker and her close friend. But it is hard to resist your heart and the two would become entwined in a rocky relationship lasting half of the show’s run.

The attraction that these two doctors (John JD Dorian and Elliot Reed) felt for each other was almost immediate. The characters go through several ups and downs before starting the relationship during their early years at Sacred Heart, they would struggle to commit to one another. John and Elliot eventually formed a strong friendship instead often helping each other with work and even romance. Later when they grew up, they give each other the relationship that they both deserved.
Kim Possible
7.4OTTplay Rating
The relationship between Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable goes a bit further than best friend territory. She is an awesome crime-fighter and he is her bumbling sidekick who she’s known her whole life. As this is a kid’s show we wouldn’t have been surprised if their relationship was kept platonic. But they were able to showcase their newfound love for one another by spending so much time together.
Boy Meets World
As the show begins during the final year of middle school, childhood friends Cory and Topanga are harbouring some serious crushes for each other. It isn’t until high school that they begin dating and eventually embark on the love of a lifetime. Throughout the majority of the show, their relationship has shown to be pure heartwarming goodness.
New Girl
8.1OTTplay Rating
This rom-com show is about the quirkiest woman ever until she ended up with one of her male co-stars. Though she formed strong bonds with each of her new roommates, the chemistry between Jessica Day and Nick Miller was too fantastic to resist. Jess would often push Nick to confront his fear of responsibility as a friend and later as a girlfriend. The two would break up and then reunite later on after realizing there was no one else for them.
Sam and Freddie started with a love-hate relationship, showing strong feelings of dislike towards each other, constantly fighting and arguing. Later they start developing feelings for each other and are so into each other. It's the most popular and the most supported relationship on the show.
