If you don't know what a cuddle-buddy is, imagine friends with benefits, but replace the sex with cuddling and you're golden. I have one that is pretty recent actually. It's pretty great (especially as someone who never had anyone to cuddle with before this point) and unlike friends with benefits, I think it's actually a good thing for both you; your friend, and your friendship. Well, as long as both parties understand that there is nothing special going on. Do or have you guys ever had/have a cuddle buddie (s), and what is your opinion of them?
