I’ve been in a friends with benefits relationship with the same guy for 6 years now. We’ve been on and off but we always end up going back to each other. Whenever I start dating or get into a relationship I break things off with my friends with benefits but once that relationship is over my friends with benefits is there to pick up the pieces. He hasn’t dated any girl in the 6 years I’ve known him. He even asked if I could keep seeing him when I’m in a serious relationship. Have we grown too dependent on each other? Is it a mistake that I go back to him after every breakup?
Sounds to me like you guys are on the right track. In a lot of these situations, one or both friends are still looking for the right partner. But if you can maintain that understanding, don't fix it if it ain't broke. As for still seeing him while in a relationship, you need to leave that up to your new boyfriend. I've talked to people who have had both, and as long as it's not cheating, I don't see the problem. Just make sure to always give your top priority to your boyfriend.
