12 Ways To Enjoy A ‘Friends With Benefits’ Relationship (Without Ever Getting Attached)

12 Ways To Enjoy A ‘Friends With Benefits’ Relationship (Without Ever Getting Attached)

6. Do not sleep over.

Sleeping over just makes things more awkward. After sex cuddling or laughing or touching hands or whatever it is you do after sex is for relationships. Not your FWB. Kick him out or you leave his place because all that other stuff is going to start making you become attached. Plus leaving after sex eliminates the awkward morning walk of shames and you get to sleep in your own bed, so that’s a win right there.

7. Don’t read into his messages.

I swear, don’t do it. If he gives you a compliment don’t run and tell your friends what he said. Simply let your eyes skim the words and let it go. You can’t cling to compliments because he is just being polite; he isn’t saying he wants to date you. Don’t twist his sentences and dissect his words because men are generally not very deep humans. Plus you agreed to no feelings or attachments so he definitely isn’t doing it to try to win you over.

8. You don’t have to always be there at the flip of a switch.

If you don’t feel like hooking up one night, then you don’t have to. That’s the thing with a FWB it supposed to be for both of your pleasure and fun so if you can’t be bothered one night, you don’t have to agree.
