Are you friends with your clients?

Do you think it's ok for clients to become friends?

I've challenged myself on this topic over the years (normally when something goes wrong and becomes awkward) because I just don't seem to help myself opening up and becoming friends with people who, essentially, are paying me for a professional service. 

This could be my personality (I love everyone until I don't!), it could be because I admire all the solo and micro business people enormously and love hearing their stories, or it could be that I just don't have appropriate boundaries for myself.

I know that there are many, many people who I've worked with who I'd be delighted to have a glass of wine with and chew on our mutual business thoughts. 

Personally, I'm all for it, working by yourself can be lonely and exhausting and my business friends get it.
