I have my own opinions but I just felt like asking the world out there... I'm in a long-distance friends with benefits relationship right now (if that's even possible). It didn't use to be long distance; we just recently got separated. I switched schools for a semester. But we've been fwb's for almost a year and a half now. Recently, 2 weeks ago, he's told me he cares about me through FB (facebook). We had this misunderstanding and I thought he didn't but he did and told me he does care about me, I just think too much about things, that's all. Which I won't even deny because I kind of do. lol. And when I went up to visit school again most recently which was a few days ago, (havent been there since around Valentines day) I'd texted him and asked if he'd wanted to hang out. He told was going to a party for his best friends party that night. I didn't reply. 15 minutes later he texts me again and said yea, he wanted me though. Hadn't seen me in a while, forgot how I kissed. Wow. See,... Show More
Please help!! Does he mean it when he says "I want you", "I care about you", etc.?

You already are in a vulnerable spot. I think that he really does like the sex but he's being honest about liking it more than you. He still talks to you because he does care about you as a friend. That's the problem with FWB relationships, trying to find out exactly where you stand is very challenging. If you have feelings you should really stop having sex with him because it can lead to some very hurt feelings.
"I like you" : I like the sex I can get from you and your friendship
"I care about you": I care about the sex we have. Again, your friendship is a bonus
"I love you": I have love for you (I'm not in love with you)
