Can a friendship after friends with benefits ever work?

Do you think it is possible to get back to a state of good friendship after having had sexual encounters in the past?

Superb Opinion

  • No, it is not likely to be the same type of friendship as before.

    Once you have past this friendship limit and have gone beyond, you do not view the person the same way as you did before being intimate and this limit of non physical intimacy is now broken.

    It is like if you break a seal. You can never fix it to the state it was before. The real and true friendship is broken in favor of something more trivial and genuine.

    One never has sex with a true friend and hope to be able to resume where you left off before the intimate contact.

  • I think you can. Adults can discuss this situation and decide what kind of relationship between them

  • To me, a friends with benefits implies you should already be friends, during and after lol, but sadly this isn't the case with almost all. It really should be called something else. But it depends on the two people involved. It's certainly possible, but actually happening? Respect should be there to, and often there is none at all! Very sad.

  • If there were never romantic feelings by either person, then, yes, it's usually possible. If, on the other hand, if there were romantic feelings, then it usually doesn't work.

  • I have been in a few friends with benefits relationships. They were fun with tons of sex... just be open with communication.

    • But do you still have a close friendship with them?

    • Just on Facebook. We parted a friends but have moved on.

  • Maybe. Depends on the circumstance.

  • I think it has a better chance of working than trying to turn it into a marriage.

  • It can it's up to the couple.

  • As long as you don’t catch feelings

  • Sure it could.

  • of course it can, unless it was "always" about the "sex" I was happy when my "Friend" found the "perfect" guy for her... She is very happy and I am happy for her. we are still friends...

  • Fuck no

  • No, men and women cannot be platonic. It is not healthy

  • Like to find out

  • Sure you can.

  • It's hard to be friends with a girl, and not think of her sexually. Unless, of course, she's not attractive.
    So, no is my answer.
