Can people actually make a friends with benefits relationship work?

I have had this guy friend for 2 years and we were thinking of trying a friends with benefits relationship. I find him very attractive and am completely up for it but don't want to ruin our friendship. Is it possible to maintain a friends with benefits relationship without ruining a friendship?

  • Sure, as long as you are clear about your expectations and rules. So, what do you do when one of you starts dating? What do you do if you become pregnant together? (Yeah, you should talk about that.)

    I personally think it is valid to want to make someone you love and care about feel good and happy, even if you do not see them as life partner.

    And if you realized you were good for each other and wound up together, it wouldn't be the first time it ever happened!

    • I'm on birth control and he agreed to also wear a condom for extra protection. Also, if one of us started dating then we would just stop. Lastly, I highly doubt he could ever see me in a romantic way.

    • Thanks for the MHO! Even though he may not see you romantically, other men will.

  • Yes, it's very possible. Maybe you have to set some rules, but the key things are discretion and not catching feelings.

    • He kinda appears to be a douche but once you get to know him he is the biggest sweetheart and would do anything to make you happy. I wouldn't want to ruin the friendship.
