Friend with benefit dating
Casual hangouts are one thing, but including them in significant or intimate moments in your life as if they were your partner can blur the lines that you worked so hard to draw.People typically don't get jealous of the people their friends date unless they have feelings for them, Meyers says.
Rebecca Newman, MSW, LCSW says an important part of a FWB arrangement is to acknowledge that the relationship will b different as a result of any sexual interactions you may have.The only way this FWB relationship will work is if the two of you are totally honest about how you feel from the get-go and continue to talk it out when needed, Meyers says.Not only is it important to speak up about changing needs and desires (like, if one of you meets someone), but you should also talk about what you like and don't in bed — that's what this is all about, right?If this is truly a FWB and not "no strings attached," you are welcome and encouraged to sustain the "friends" part of that by continuing to do whatever activity or hobby brought you together as friends in the first place.If/when the sex stops, ideally you'll come out the other side still being friends. That can only happen if someone speaks up, though, so if you want a greater commitment from you FWB, say so. If not, then you have the knowledge you need to move on to look for a connection that truly makes you happy.
