    Sounds Good To Me

    I've been in a solid stream of relationships since I was 18. I'm ready to be on my own, single, with no one tying me down or using me. I just want to be my own person and have a friend I trust to sleep with on occasion. I don't think it makes me slutty.

    I told him. I told my best friend/crush

    that I didn't wanna have a fwb type thing going on because every time I do it ends badly. Well, he finally talked me into doing it and now we aren't talking. I told him that it ruins things, he said it'd be different with him, because he's fine with doing that ****, but...

    I Really Want Someone's Opinion

     Right now I'm in a friends with benefits situation. Its kinda complicated because the guy is my ex and I still really like him. I can't tell anyone I know because we are keeping it "our little secret." What do you think about it?

    FWB

    Well the album (in the logo) is pretty good. In case that's what this group happened to be about, lol. As for the actual thing, I guess it can work sometimes. You'd probably need a set of rules like they did on One Tree Hill or Seinfeld. You'd just have to be careful not to get...

    20 Years Is a Long Time...

    That's how long I've had mine!  But this is possibly the most delicate situation you'll ever face.  1st - If you are in a situation where you are still 'in love' and the other person isn't, it's not friends with benefits!  It's a booty call, and you're being used...

    Never Could Get Into It

    Once when I was in my mid-teens, I had a "friend with benefits" and it didn't gel well with me and what I wanted in a relationship. Basically, I was in junior high and he was my crush's cousin. He and I were good friends but I wanted to make my crush jealous so every...

    I loved the guy who used to be my best friend

    but he didn't feel the same towards me and I moved on from him to great extent. And now we are soon to be friends with benefits. We haven't done anything yet but we do talk about it and we are going to do something but I will only limit it to kissing.

    My Question Exactly...

      There are two women in my life that I consider "friends with benefits" although I think the title is a little crass.  One is a childhood friend that somewhere along the line we just sort of crossed the line.  It just seemed natural.  I thought of her like a best friend...

    Do You Really?

    Well, many may not want to know or hear my opinion on the matter. I'm not for it, so you may stop reading at this point, if you are for it. :-) My honest opinion is, it's a bunch of crap! Many think they can have relations with another and not fall in love. I'm sure some...

    My Beautiful Mistake.

    I was just dealt a blow with my mom's death.  He remembered me as the pretty, outgoing, vibrant person I was before her death, not the unwashed, grimy depressed mess I was after.   I asked how his girlfriend was and he rolled his eyes.  I asked him if...

    Me and my best friend are technically friends

    with benefits! We've recently arranged another 'meet up' but he told me today he wasn't trying to 'get with me'. I like him but should I end our FWB relationship before or if I develop any strong feeling towards him. X

    I Think

    they're okay if no one gets hurt, and both sides understand that you're not their boyfriend/girlfriend and that they're not your boyfriend/girlfriend, and also that you understand you don't get the exclusive benefits/"rights" that a boyfriend or girlfriend would get. I...

    Sounds Fun But Not For Me

    I think friends with benefits sounds great but I know i could never handle it. If I am with someone I enjoy sleeping with I will usually have feelings with her and could never handle knowing it could never go any further. I would just get hurt and that wouldn't be fair to her...

    Bad

    I should have known better. I fell in love with my friend with benefits. Damn. I would say I wish it had never started, but then I never would have had the best sex of my life.
