I was reading an article about FWBs and the lifespan of them. I'm not in a friends with benefits relationship anymore, thank god. But what I don't understand is, in the end, why do some men try to hold on instead of just letting go?
In the article is says, "The decision stage is when you do one of three things: Struggle to hold onto her without giving in, to keep things what they were"
This happened to me. No matter what I said to him he would not leave me alone but he wouldn't give me the relationship I wanted.
If you want two different things, why not just bow out gracefully instead of putting someone through emotional pain all for the sake of sex? The sex wasn't even that good...

Fear of loss, fear of change. Wanting to have your cake and eat it too. Combination of those. That would be my guess.
Personally, I'm of the mind to nip drama in the bud and avoid headaches. I can't truly understand why some people are willing to put up with so much BS. Just let it end.0
