It's a relationship where you have a friend... you do friend type stuff with him/her - like hang out, watch movies, go to sporting events or concerts... but you're not 'dating' or romantic. And then you have sex (the benefit). You can call that person for sex with no other "date" as a precursor to the sex.
Have an opinion?
its a friend that you are only friends with for sex. i have a fwb, it is amazing. we do hang out too, but every time we do there is ;). imagine a friend, who you use for sex when you need it, vice versa. when im horny i call him up and arrange a meeting date. when he is horny he calls me up and arranges a meeting date. overall, that's what friends with benefits are. its a good relationship if you dont hang out alllll the time. if you like see each other like every day, then it won't work out.
what if you develop feelings for each other. do you feel weird just because you were friends with benefits or you go on having a relationship?
it is having a best friend that you have coitus with.you don't date them because you'd be scared that your friendship ould be ruined but you have feelings for them (might do) and you do it for fun
@yaddayaddayadda02Don't think it really ever goes like that though does it, at that point you're dating without being exclusive really.My view on it has always been this:Friends with benefits - someone you're comfortable with and have sexual attraction to but don't really see as long term dating potential or you/her/both are not emotionally available at the time. You sleep together when convenient and you MAY do stuff that friends do together every once in a while, but it won't be like hanging out with your close female friends. It's just no strings attached sex with a little more likelihood of hanging out together during the day rather than a late night option in my eyes.
You're just arguing the semantics of how often the two hang out, then.
Mmm kind of I suppose, also misread your response... thought you implied friends with benefits involves hanging out and doing movies, sports events, concerts etc. Was thinking... not that I am aware of.No, I think I am on the same page as you then.
when two people remain nothing more than friends but are engaging in sex. "friends with benefits"
I've never had a friend with benifits, only sexual lovers/partners.. some for mulltiple years, and of course nothing exclusive. But it's exclusively sex, no hanging out outside and going to the movies or dinner. That shit I can do with friends lol. Maybe that's why a lot of people who do friends with benefits get emotionally attached and start expecting more later on. Some even are even exclusive? Like whaaaaaat lol.. than just be together in a relationship hahaha.
exactly. i think having such a friend is pointless
