Are you thinking of starting a friends with benefits (FWB) type of relationship? You can have your cake, and eat it, too but it can turn into a nightmare if not handled correctly. The Urban Dictionary defines friends with benefits as Two friends who have a sexual relationship without being emotionally involved. Typically two good friends who have casual sex without a monogomous relationship or any kind of commitment
Here I have 5 simple rules to follow if you want a successful FWB relationship that wont end in heartbreak:
Rule # 1: Do Not Be FWB with a Close Friend
FWBs can ruin close relationships so it works best with new or recent friends and when it comes to an end(believe me it will) both parties can drift apart and move on with life like it never happened.
Rule # 2: Do Not get Jealous
The key word in the definition of the Friends with benefit relationship is no emotional attachment or involvement, Just Sex and nothing more and If you find yourself getting jealous then its time to end it
Rule # 3: Do not introduce to other Friends
Letting your FWB hangout with Family and friends and they end up liking the person could be disastrous.The whole world doesn’t need to know about your FWB so keep it on the low.
Rule # 4: Do not Fall in Love
This is probably the hardest part of the rule to follow but always have it at the back of your mind that it will never develop into a relationship and if you start to catch feelings then its time to roll out
Rule # 5: Be honest about it
Be honest with the other person at all times,It is important to discuss the rules and boundaries at the very beginning.
Follow this rules and you will find the FWB relationship to be fun and less complicated.
Have fun guys 🙂
