Superb Opinion

  • I have been in relationships before that were good but I always felt like there was something missing and I wasn't giving all of myself even though what I was giving they absolutely loved but for some reason I couldn't just be me I always held back
    It wasn't until about a month after I broke up with my ex and finally got her out of my house that took me almost 7 months and I was exhausted I didn't want anything to do with the girls in about a month after the breakup two of her friends came over to my house both of different times and one of my friends came over to my house any different time as we talked it I found out a bunch of stuff that my ex used to tell her friends about us having sex the way we did it and some other things but all three of these girls ask me if I would take them out on a date and I told them right now I don't want anything to do with anybody I was still trying to get myself back from being so angry and not letting it out as I was trying to get her out of my house I told them that I was just trying to find myself again
    But of course me being a smart-ass I said not let you want to become friends with benefits and all three of them said yes
    Like I said I wasn't trying to be serious I was just being a smartass but I was going to go with it since they said yes and every night one of them would come over it would call me at first ask me if it was okay I would say yes but I had rules if you ever say I love you I want you I miss you I need you it was done and it was over with there wouldn't be a second chance

    in doing it this way i felt that there was a change I didn't have to put on the the mind your manners hat I just let it all go I was just myself I could say anything to any one of them and they would understand what I was saying and there wouldn't be a debate about it it was what it was and that was beautiful and with them allowing me to just be open and myself that even made the sex ten times hotter
    I don't know if you know what I mean about when you're in a relationship you're always trying to be there for them nice responsible and there's things that you would like to say but you don't because you don't want to hurt your feelings because they'll take it wrong but with a Friends with Benefits relationship it is just open all the way and it is beautiful it's 10 times better than any relationship that I've ever had
    Since covid-19 I haven't got out except for one time I haven't gotten laid in a one time and that's starting to take a toll on me LOL I mean I'm searching for people to role-play with have phone sex with because that can be even hotter than real sex I can tell you the story about it but I won't break but anyway yes I love being friends with benefits

  • It sounds like a humble brag or just bragging but I'm all for people who are friends with benefits. I had a woman friend ask me for over a year if I'd ever consider a friends with benefits or fuckbuddies situation with her. I always gently turned her down, usually saying I didn't want to risk our long time friendship, even after she said there was nothing to worry about. I turned her down because of a couple reasons. One, was she just really that horny or did she actually want me? And she didn't want to use condoms. Said she hated the feeling of being so close but still separated. There's no way I could know if she was on birth control, and there's no male birth control meds like that, so I didn't want to risk getting her pregnant.

  • I'm in a group of five friends and we have our secret life, and only stick to our own. It's similar to a poly tribe, but not exactly that. I think it's the best way to go. There's none of the usual relationship stuff where you have to meet the parents. It's just a chill environment. We don't waste our money in clubs and things like that. It's more like hiking, biking, camping and Netflix. I don't have anything bad to say about hookup culture, but to me it's too much effort. Friends with benefits is a happy compromise.

    And this will sound horrible and controversial, but I think that both people in a marriage should have a special friend on the side. The divorce rate is insane, and that's due to money and cheating. There aren't many options with the money part, but cheating could easily be avoided.

  • i met my friends with benefits... and i wanted someone to give head to initially... we met i wasn't into it at the moment then he whipped it out and said i know you want to... i loved his cock and gave him a blowjob... then i gave him another one totally nude and it was hot... afterwards he tells if you do that for me 3 times a week i won't see anyone else and you wear a short robe for our sessions...3 times a week became 5 times a week and maybe 3-5 blowjobs each time... which made me very happy and still does i've been blowing him for 3 years and loving it... i'm doing what i love to do anyway.

  • I always had relationships so I'm not sure how to navigate having sex with a woman I like a lot, and then saying goodbye and she goes and bangs someone else.
    I guess it's just a sign of the times or something, but I think something is lost in that. I would miss the feeling of belonging to each other, and the close bond.

  • If all parties consent and it works for you, there's no problem to be had.

  • I currently have a friend with benefits and have had them in the past. Sometimes it's nice to just be in a situation without certain expectations being attached

  • Many guys mostly look for sex in a relationship anyway, and it's not as bad as one night stand.

  • I love it and have always had multiple

  • i've only had two. one wanted arelationship and the other did not

  • Personally, and it may just because I’m interested in the same sex, I think it’s fine. I mean we all have needs and there’s nothing wrong with helping eachother out.

  • one person always ends up wanting the other person; who then moves on and meets someone else. always ends in heartbreak and drama

  • Imit works for some people but I'd probably end up developing feelings or something XD

  • What is your opinion having friends with benefits?
    *It can be very peaceful and satisfying.
    What do you think of the idea of having a person you aren't fully committed to in a relationship that you have sexual relations with on a regular basis?
    *An authentic Friends With Benefits IS a relationship. There is a form of commitment as in any friendship and there will (must) be fondness on some level.

    In some respects it is like a part time marriage without the baggage.

  • one of the participants will get hurt.

  • It can be a good thing although it can go sideways if one catches feelings.

  • I think it's a good idea even though I've never been succeeded in it.

    It makes the dating a lot more simpler. No hard feelings yet keeping the connection without getting into silly social norms.

    Love the idea.

  • I mean there's nothing wrong with it but I'd rather have a proper LTR

  • Not my cup of tea.

  • YES, I can go with that..

  • I am so new to sex, that I am unsure.

    I just recently lost my virginity

    would you mind answering some of the questions I posted? Or giving some advice?

  • As the name suggests, it has certain benefits that you don't get in a regular relationship. Like not needing to commit or feel any sort of romantic attraction.

  • I LOVED when I was in my friends with benefits relationship. I've been in one for about six years. To me, friends with benefits relationships are the better than regular boyfriend/girlfriend relationships because there is no stress, no drama, no jealousy, no headaches & no obligations.
