9 Ways To Keep Your Friend With Benefits Relationship (FWB) From Turning To A Serious Relationship
Many people think having friends with benefits (fwb) is an abomination..but you never know what you are missing till you get into it.
Having friends with benefits is so freeing, fun, and interesting because you don’t have to worry about all the stress that comes with being in a relationship and most obviously you are getting sex regularly.
As interesting as it may be some people do it the wrong way and then get stuck in a relationship they never planned for, which was what they were avoiding in the first place.
So, today am going to be setting down some easy rules to follow to avoid catching unwanted feelings with a friend with benefit.
1. Stay far away from someone you see almost everytime
Never want to start a fwb ish with your “neighbor” no mater how tempting it may be. Having sex with someone you see often makes it hard not to want more than just sex and then it might even make you feel uncomfortable.
2. Don’t think too much about what is happening
Some people tend to think that there is more to what is going on than just sex. Don’t think the “relationship” is more serious than it actually is. Just let it flow.
3. Be cautious when you meet someone new
Because you have a friend with benefits doesn’t mean you cant meet new people and it also does not mean you should hit the brakes with the person you having this relationship with. Be careful not to think cause you are having sex with someone means you in a serious relationship with that person.
4. Don’t introduce your friends to your friend with benefits
Most people make the mistake of encouraging their friends to hang out with their fwb. This is so wrong. Since it is just about sex then your friends don’t even need to know.
5. Never sleep over
No matter how late in the night it may be or how tired you may be, never make the mistake of sleeping off a his/her place. That would make it seem too serious and besides the interesting part about fwb is that there don’t have to be any cuddling or serious talks after sex.
6. Don’t get jealous
Don’t get jealous or mad if you see your fwb going out with someone or getting all cuddly with someone else. He/she is not cheating on you so you have no reason to be jealous.
7. Keep your relationship inside the bedroom
Don’t get too excited as ask if they want to spend time together and talk..that will be sooo wrong..restrict it to the bedroom and to the bedroom alone unless you want to start a serious relationship.
8. Always protect yourself
Cause you always having sex with the same person doesn’t mean you should forget to always use a condom. Don’t have unprotected sex no matter what because you don’t know who else such a person is seeing after you.
9. lay down the ground rules
Its better to state from the beginning what you want so not to give the other person the wrong idea.
