Why do people want to be friends with benefits and not be in a relationship. Does it mean they don't really love each other?

Most Helpful Opinion

  • People want to be friends with benefits for different reasons. It might be that they just want regular sex with someone that they feel comfortable with but aren't interested in that person romantically, or it might be that they do like the person in a romantic way, but for some reason a relationship might not be practical at the moment. You can love someone that you have a friends with benefits relationship with, but usually people get into a friends with benefits relationship when they aren't interested in a romantic relationship with that person.
