    Friends with benefits?

    Advertisements
    I was watching True Life on MTV last night and it was about people who have friends with benefits. I was just wondering if you agree or disagree with people having that kind of relationship. I know a few of my ex db's would have loved to have stayed FWB, but I just couldn't do it. What about you?

    It can and it can't- depends on what kind of 'benefits'. I had one for a while but nothing beyond making out and he knew the rules. Anything else I think to much gets involved but to each his own IMO.

    Personally I could never be in that type of situation. Could it work for others? Possibly. I think feelings would get in the way sooner or later by either or both parties involved.

    If you are a single and not looking for a committment, then sure, why not. I don't see the harm in it as long as each person is truely single and its a mutually agreed upon friends with benefits arrangement between them.

    Someone always ends up developing feelings and getting hurt, even if both parties try their best to just do sex. You cant have "just sex" a lot.

    Benefits = sex.

    I think it's crazy. I'm way too emotional and think sex is fine within the confines of a committed relationship. Otherwise I would be a mess with all of the emotions involved.

    No. They DO NOT work. One will inevitably care more for the other and someone will get hurt. It's a nice theory, but it's a terrible truth.
