friends with benefits
I have had ‘arrangements’ like that when it has suited me, usually when i haven’t got the time or when i am feeling particuarly commitment adverse. Can’t see the problem with it tbh if it works why knock it . . . oh i forgot where i was for a minute, I will sit back and see the non offensive carefully considered opinions come in 🙂Posted 4 years agocbmotorsportMember
Had this situation when I left a long term relationship a few years ago, I didn’t really want a GF at the time, and so it suited me. The cons outweighed the pros though eventually, she became a lot keener than I was, and I ended up hurting her, despite the fact that we’d agreed from the start what we both wanted.
I wouldn’t do it again if I found myself in a similar situation.Posted 4 years agoGolfChickMember
Best mate had this for a little while, made it clear there would never be a relationship. A bit later said person turned round and said they had fallen in love with him so he ended it then n there.
I had it for a little while with an ex who I had stopped loving but he still loved me, it was just making things harder n meant he never moved on so that ended quickly too!Posted 4 years agoPigfaceMember
Played this game for a while, at first it was amazing real monkey sex but for some unfathomable reason she started to develop feelings for me. No idea how as we saw each other maybe once a month. Well that was the end of that. No regrets really but having an emotional attachment to go with the physical side of things is much better.Posted 4 years agoscuzzMember
Only possible if you’ve got more than one on the go IME, otherwise you start thinking about it too much and the other party starts entertaining thoughts that they can keep you all to themselves.Posted 4 years ago
It shouldn’t ever be compared to ‘relationships’, or used as a transitional period: then it’s just a dysfunctional one-sided relationship without effective communication. Great way to stay in shape.

I have always ended up getting hurt when in this situation.
When I had a guy who was a friend with benefits, we both ended up getting hurt.

So sad. So very, very sad.
