(context) I have had this friend since I was a baby and have had sexual chemistry with him since we were 11 and 12. My friend joked around about me giving him a bj and I was thinking about how our friendship would be affected if it ever were to happen

  • Yeah! Just stay friends!! The only one I'm NOT friends with after I fucked her is my ex-fiance and that's mostly because she cheated on me and then, a few years later started accusing me of trying to date her niece!! I don't NEED shit like that in my life!! She can kiss my ass!!
    My 2nd girlfriend doesn't talk to me, anymore, either but, that's on HER, NOT on ME!! We were both penniless a few years ago but I had a couple bucks from the loose change I scraped up from the drive through windows at the mall every night. She took in a "stray" cat and decided to feed the little fucker and wanted ME to give her part of my last buck or two in the world to feed that fucking worthless bag of fur!! The cat can easily go out and kill something to eat and I'm SURE that it makes the rounds to MANY other houses to beg for food and GETS IT!! That thing AIN'T starving anywhere NEAR as much as I was!! So, when I refused to give her the money for cat food, she got pissed at me and started calling me all kinds of nasty names so, I shut her out of my life!! About a year later, I sent her a b-day card and I still never heard back from her!! A few months later, she saw something I wrote on YT and wrote a nasty response to that so, FUCK HER, TOO!!
    The last time I saw my first girlfriend, 23 years ago, before she got in her car to leave, we hugged, kissed and she started playing tonsil hockey with me!! The last time we saw each other before that was about 15 years before.

  • It depends on how you got there. (Unmarried at the time) A personal friend was grieving a family loss and wanted comforting. We slept together, were intimate and it may have actually enhanced out friendship. But you have to have the right mind to do this,

  • If the guy is only interested in sex…he wouldn’t mind continue having free sex… it will boost his ego…he will go else where to get a girlfriend. And might continue having free sex with the girl he is not interested in a relationship… he might..

    or a decent guy would drop the FWB… to focus on the new girlfriend.
    if the guy is interested in the girl…he would want her to be more than a sex object.

    a girl giving free sex… she is either horny… don’t care just want sex… or she likes the guy and want more…if the guy is not reciprocating…she will feel sad and low…

    Since your question is being vague who is who… either way… it’s not a good idea…

    work on getting to know the heart… sex will come and have a more meaningful loving relationship… = happiness.

    • Well I care about him but I want to just stay friends. I am never jealous when he likes someone or something. I am just attracted to him. I don't know how he feels

    • So you don’t want to be his girlfriend/wofe? Yiu just want sex/sexual stuff with this guy who you have known since you were a baby?

    • Yeah pretty much

  • In my own experience, after sleeping with a friend, things did get complicated. There was a mix of emotions, including attachment and confusion. The friendship itself was affected, and there was some awkwardness and tension. It took honest conversations and setting clear boundaries to try and maintain the friendship.

    • very well said that messed a friendship of mine up and wished i could take that all back and not have done it without talking it through first

  • It would depend on who had feelings for who.

  • No, it isn't because he is now an ex and he knows that there is always a possibility you would let him fuck you again. Guys in your future will have a serious problem with you continuing to associate with guys who have fucked you in the past.

  • I think so as long as u both are mature about it and honest about what happened and value the friendship

    • How old are u two?

    • Well I am 19 and he is about to turn 20

    • Maybe u two were meant to get intimate? Have you ever talked to him about taking ur friendship to the next level?

  • It absolutely is possible to have sex with a good friend and then still be friends afterwards

  • Nope

  • Nope. Think about it like this. If you decide to get married one day and you stay friends with that guy you and your husband will be hanging out with a dude you used to fuck and suck. Would you want to hangout with your future partner and people he used to give head to and fuck?

  • It can be hard but it is possible.

  • It can be maintained, but there will be a sexual charge when you two are together without other friends.

    • Okay thank you

    • If you haven't had sex with him yet, I probably wouldn't. While I stand by what I said, I should also mention that it is not easy to maintain it.

  • I used to sleep with a friend of mine

  • i am friends with the people i've slept with

  • Yes, its very possible in my opinion.

  • Yeah I was in same situation I just want to have sex with her but don't want anything serious because we're close friends now we're became friends with benefits...
