Hanging Out With Your FWB – How Much Time Is Enough?

Friends with benefits relationships are becoming more common these days and there are many reasons why this is the case. For one, FWB relationships can be very fun. Friends with Benefits

You will probably also find that these relationships are almost totally drama-free.

The main question that people will often ask when they get into this type of relationship is how much hang out time should I spend with my ‘friend’?

Here are some FWB tips that can help:

Do Something Sexual Each Time You Get Together

The total time you spend hanging out with your friends with benefits is totally up to you, of course, but you want to be sure, even if you have several friends with benefits, that you are meeting them with the intention of enjoying a sexual act of some kind.

Of course, you got into a FWB relationship because you wanted sex, so it should make sense that you would want to meet with them for sex.

Once you have had sex, you can then start talking about ‘friend’ time.

What Should You Do During ‘Friend’ Time?

You don’t need to go all out when it comes to the ‘friend’ time you spend with your friend with benefits.

Friend time can truly consist of almost anything from grabbing some food or watching movies together to seeing other friends or getting a drink at the pub.

Your hang out time with your FWB might also be as simply as talking to each other following sex, having a drink before you have sex or basically anything that is not sex related.

How Much Time Should We Spend Together?

In a friends with benefits situation, you know that much of the time you spend together should involve some type of sexual act, and you also should know what ‘friend’ time should be, but the main question here is how much time you should spend together.

This will depend entirely on how strongly you feel about each other or perhaps even how attractive they are (you may not want them to meet your friends for example).

If you’re just with your FWB for sex only, and don’t want to hang out with them in public for example, it’s totally fine.  If the other person wants more however, maybe it’s time for you to move onto someone you’re more ‘into’.

Some of these couples who consider themselves to be friends with benefits will have a long term friendship and were even friends before they started having sex.

This couple will likely be spending more time together and doing things like going to dinner, sleeping over and hanging out with the same circle of friends.

Short Term Vs Long Term FWB

So, you may find that friends with benefits who have a history with each other or those who may have a strong connection may spend several hours together every week.

Other people who are friends with benefits may only spend a short amount of hang out time together each week , and that is all they need.

As you will see, when it comes to being friends with benefits, you will generally find that the time you spend together will be based on the relationship you have.

Friends who have a stronger mental closeness to each other will typically spend more time together on top of the sex.

The couples who are less connected emotionally will typically have sex then possibly chat and that’s all.

What it all comes down to is how comfortable the two of you feel together and what will work best with the casual relationship you have together.

Creating Your FWB Arrangement

Many people just don’t want to commit these days, and they are like this for many reasons.

How can they end?

Friends with benefits arrangements can end when someone gets hurt, or meets someone else, so remember to be honest about what you are after.

If the other person thinks that you are going to commit to them, then it won’t work.

You will both need to be upfront about the fact you just want casual sex, and that you enjoy their company only for this.

Relationships can get messy and emotional without honesty, so it is okay to say that you only want to keep things casual.

Can friends with benefits work?

Many friends enjoy sex without any complications or a committed relationship. They can even be open and honest and make time to get together just for sex.

They might see each other once a week, or once a month, or even several times each week. The trick to success with casual sex is finding the right partner who wants the same thing as you.

If one relationship doesn’t work out, don’t give up. Keep looking for the right friend who enjoys the same kind of sex as you, wants it just as much as you, and is keen to keep things casual without any commitment and complications.

Friends with benefits arrangements can certainly work, you just have to have fun and stay positive.
