  • I said C. I have many exes that were FWBs. Ex = former = the past. So I went on multiple dates with my FWBs plenty of times. Haven't always slept with all of them but the dates for the most part is what would make me consider them an ex, especially if I developed feelings for them. Most FWBs turn into complicated relationships. Not always official but you call yourself boyfriend and girlfriend so I guess it's official but there may never really be a title. Still you spent a lot of time and energy together in the past so that would make that person an ex. If it's a one night stand or one time hookup, then no. They're not an ex. But multiple hookups and dates and it becomes quite serious, then yes, an ex.

What Guys Said 2

  • Normally I think of an ex as short for an ex girlfriend so I think we would have to be official.

  • Definitely had to be exclusive at the most. I don't think you could sleep with or go on a date with a girl once, not see her anymore and call her your ex.

  • #2 and above feel like an ex to me... actually it's more awkward with #2 than #3/4 because you really never know where you stood or if you count as broken up or what...
