In the modern era of Tindr and career-minded young adults, the ‘friends with benefits’ situation is becoming more and more common. With that being said, this uncharted territory can hold some confusing circumstances. What are the rules for a FWB arrangement? Are there even a set of rules for Friends With Benefits? Yes- yes there are. And if you’re in a FWB ordeal, you should definitely follow them.
#1) Don’t Spend The Night
Spending the night is intimate and it’s a thing couples do. You two aren’t a couple. Get up, take a shower, and go home to your own bed. You guys are in it for the fun and the casual sex. Don’t get in the habit of acting more like a couple than a couple of friends.
#2) Be Clear On The ‘Label’ Right Away
Don’t hide behind excuses or avoid the topic. Have the “What are we?” conversation within the first time of sleeping with someone. Being clear up front ensures that everyone is on the same wave length and no one’s feelings get hurt in the long run.
#3) Be Friends- Don’t Use Each other
Yes, do things outside of having sex. No one wants to be used, and when ALL you’re doing is hopping into bed with eachother eventually each of you are going to feel more like f*** buddies than friends with benefits. So hang out, eat pizza, watch movies- whatever. But be friends, not just sex partners.
