Friends with Benefits Relationship
When you hear the term ‘friend with benefits’ sex is often the first thing that springs to mind and for good reason.
A friend with benefits relationship by definition gives you the opportunity to have a sexual relationship with someone you’re close to without having a ‘real’ committed relationship.
But is it really possible to have a long term relationship with one person that is only about sex? Or is a friend with benefits relationship simply an easy way to have a ‘committed’ relationship without the commitment?
he truth is you just don’t know who it is you’re going to go home with when you head out to ‘pick up’ for the night. Having a friend with benefits you can fall back on is certainly a safer alternative but are you there just for the sex or is something more involved?
Those involved in a friend with benefits relationship are often starting off as good friends who want to take their relationship further while keeping it casual or a couple who realise their not compatible in a relationship but want to be more than friends.
Depending on how you look at things, these ‘couples’ (for lack of a better word) are either using the friend with benefits tag as a way to avoid ‘being’ in a committed relationship or simply enjoying sex with a close friend.
Either way it is easy to see that having a friend with benefits relationship is not just about sex.
