Friends with benefits
In most cases, Friend with Benefits (FWB) are just not planned. It just seems to happen by itself. Unlike love, the characteristic about FWB is that there is no planning, no first impressions and definitely no heartfelt gifts.
And the rest just seems to happen all by itself. Of course, there has to be a wee bit of lustful flirting and mutual attraction. Other than that, there’s nothing at all that should be done to start a FWB relationship.
Vogue reckons that it is the most sustainable relationship.
When do people become FWB?
It can happen when you least expect it. And surprisingly, most of the times, a FWB is found when you’re down in the pits, almost always when you’re trying to get over a broken relationship.
One can end up becoming FWB with a common friend, not just through an act of consoling, but also on a drunken escapade. One pint too many can have your hands moving over more than just the curves of your glass, and you’d probably end up with your arms round the shoulder of an attractive friend.
Getting yourself a FWB
Remember, getting yourself a FWB is very different from getting yourself a loving partner. It just doesn’t work the same way. You can’t woo someone into sleeping with you, or get them drunk in the hope of having sex. It has to happen naturally, over time. And there has to be mutual sexual attraction.
So, how do you all got your friend with benefit? Sexting a good start? Let’s hear it in the comments.
