  • lol I said D, but I mean they can go either way, girls like to think its more than just sex a lot of the times... which kinda sux

  • Terrible imo. A waste of time, sharing yourself too easily with another, thinking it might lead to more is always stupid, etc. Never a good reason I can see.

    • The sex.

    • So? Rather do such when it really means stuff. Don't care enough to do it with just anyone. Shallow.

  • know what your getting into so you don't get hurt, Nothing wrong with it, use each other to get your self off, explore and experiement - it can be real fun :)

  • FWB aren't relationships, they are people who decide to have sex with each other with no commitment while a relationship includes a commitment

    • In terms of friendship = relationship, acquaintance = relationship, co-worker = relationship etc.

  • there is not such a thing just sex, sex is the way of relationship, if you want one night stand then never see him/her again and forget all about it, drink helps lol

    • This was cute. Yes, drinking does help a lot to make bad decisions. You are right; however, back in the day people had one night stands, never contacted each other again and it was pretty hard for either person to catch much of a feeling if they only saw the person once. Made it much less complicated, though not necessarily a good idea.

  • Sometimes I totally understand why people are FWBs but for me I feel like I wouldn't put myself out there for someone who wasn't serious

  • Well maybe I am jealous because I never had one? Eh..I see some pitfalls there...I would rather have sex with a girl I was interested in...and I think there is a good chance that one or other of the FWB would fall for the other...might be less respect as well if no emotional attachment...but it does not bother me that others do this...and I never say "Never"...(:(:(:

  • I'm honestly not built for "no-strings-attached" sex...cauz to be frank, I get attached during sex.

    Wow...a guy said THAT?!?!?!?!?!?! lmao

    -------

    I know who I am. I can't imagine having sex with a girl that has NO feelings for me beyond sexual attraction. The sex would be less fulfulling because that fact about her having no feelings would be in my head, my attraction to her would be affected, and I'd feel used. :(

  • Doesn't really appeal to me.

  • if you want to have sex with your friend, then you should date them. you could hurt their feelings and I just think it's wrong.

  • why be friends with any commitments? It's not a smart idea because if someone ends up falling for the other person someones bond to get hurt

  • Want onee.

  • never had one but wouldn't reject the opportunity

  • I tried to have one. And few months ago we celebrated our second year anniversary. Nothing turned out as planned. But, I'm glad it didn't. lol.

  • ive had one! and after some time I became attached to that person! but he had his main girl! and that hurt a lot! cause I was with him long before he met that girl! it didn't work out well at all!

  • someone alwasy gets hurt.

  • I got tired of my relationships failing one after the other and he just got out of a serious long-term relationship where she cheated on him. We both were tired of relationships and I just wanted to lose my virginity to someone I trusted and we just kept going after that and still are. Didn't get any emotions and he's actually pursuing another girl and I'm happy for him and hope it ends well if he ends up with her.

  • I would like a FWB while I'm in a relationship. so a FWB on the side if someone doesn't mind.

    • Why not just do it your boyfriend if your in a relationship?

    • With your bf*

  • I have one guy I'd like to have a friends with benefits relationship with.. I've never had one before because I'm an emotional person and I feel like I'd become attached. BUT with this guy, I've known him for so long, and I'm only physically attracted to him. Not emotionally, or mentally..so I'd totally have one with him.

  • considering most girls have had a few ONSs and a few FWBs, I don't think I could do anything more than FWBs... since I've always been a relationship kinda guy. seems like I've missed out
