Why do women settle to be a fwb?

Let's face it nobody likes the cold feeling of being used especially when it comes to sex so why is it that women lower their standards into becoming a fwb. Why not wait for the guy who would love for you to be his girlfriend? Do women settle to become fwbs because they are just desperate? In my opinion when a women settles to be a friends with benefits it's because she has no self pride in herself & is just desperate what's your opinion?
