When it comes to (FWB) what are the rules is going out on dates i. e movies, dinner included? because thats a part of dating to me. Is spending the night and cuddling included? He always wanted me to spend the night, once again this is something you do when you are dating someone. When you start seeing someone exclusively, do you let your friends with benefits know so they won't contact you in that way or do you just not say anything. Just experienced all of this it has me very confused. He sent me so many mixed signals. Opinions please
When you are not EXCLUSIVE (FWB) what are the rules and how do you end it?

Every couple is different. Some people are capable of acting like bf/gf when they are together (kissing, spending the night, cuddling) and not getting feelings. Others need to ban that stuff, and only get together to bang, and not even hang out, or they'd get attached. Some are in between those extremes.
FWB, even though it's an easy type of relationship to fall into, is really an ADVANCED type of relationship, and for it to be successful for any length of time, it requires discussion and negotiation. That means you have to be able to talk about it frankly with your partner and develop your own rules and expectations.
You also need to realize that many people simply can't have a friends with benefits without getting attached. The ENTIRE PREMISE of a friends with benefits is that you are USING EACH OTHER for sex WITHOUT ANY EXPECTATIONS of it developing into a relationship. If you can't handle that, then you have no business being in a friends with benefits to begin with.
It's amazing how many people are against that concept and still allow themselves to get into a FWB...1
