Ok so last June, a coworker and I stated being fwbs. I had just gotten out of a 6 year long relationship and I wasn't ready for anything serious. (Don't judge please) anyway so it's a year later. At first we didn't hang out that often. It was just strictly friends with benefits . Over the past six months we have hung out a lot though. We see each other at work 5 days a week (here in about a month he's moving to a different shift so we won't see each other but I don't think that will be a bad thing), we go to the gym together 4-5 nights a week, we have lunch between classes whenever school is in session, we just chill and talk for hours in my car sometimes after the gym, and he comes over to my house every weekend. So we spend a lot of time together. He's met my brother and sister and he's meeting my dad this upcoming Sunday.
Last night at the gym I straight up asked him "do you think we're always gonna be "fwb" or no?" And he replied with "I think of us as being in a relationship without a title." And then he asked "why I needed a title?" I don't really need a title, but it would be nice to have one. Relationships scare him and I think that is why he's moving really slow with me.
Do you think there is a possibility just from what I shared that we could go from being friends with benefits to in a relationship?
Thanks for the replies and don't judge.

I think what he meant is that you two are already basically a couple, just without the title. Which isn't a bad thing. It just means that there will be less drama. As soon as you make it official and tell everyone you two are boyfriend-girlfriend, people will feel the need to interfere because you both will officially be off the market and a lot of people want someone who is not available.1
