Can My Friend With Benefits Become a Relationship?

"Can My Friend With Benefits Become a Relationship?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My friend with benefits and I recently decided that we are going to try to have a relationship. We have been friends with benefits for the past five years and just friends prior to that for two. We decided it was time to try dating because we both haven't wanted to be with other people, but we really don't want to ruin the passion we have together. We don't date other people, we don't even have sex with other people, it's just us.

Even though the title seems to be a formality at this point, I'm scared. I haven't had a boyfriend in over five years and he hasn't had a girlfriend in eight. We both talked about this and feel it's the right decision since we both care about each other, and we enjoy each other for more than just sex. Sorry if this sounds stupid, but how can I be a good girlfriend?
