Despite what people say, starting out as FWB doesn't mean you're destined for disaster.
If you're a part of the second group, then you have a strong bond with your FWB that extends beyond the bedroom.
Some people jump into relationships with men they barely know, but you know your partner all too well.
If you decide to date, the fact that you were friends first is a huge benefit.
When you sign up for a friends-with-benefits relationship, criticism comes with the package.
People will say you're setting yourself up to get hurt, or your partner will get hurt, or a random stranger on the street will get hurt.
No matter what point someone is trying to convey, the dreaded “H” word is in the mix.
But, don't all relationships, even the monogamous ones, have the potential to hurt you?
If you want a sexy stud to sleep with because you're not in the right mindset to sustain a serious relationship, have fun with a friend with benefits. It's better to find someone who's on the same page as you than to settle for some boyfriend you know likes you way more than you like him.
However, no matter how sex starved you are, you'll eventually want to settle down.
While everyone wants to have a special story about meeting her hubby at a wine tasting and falling in love at first sight, the real world is much messier.
You might end up falling for your friend with benefits, and trust me, it can work out.
