Friend with Benefits Rules
What are the 10 Rules for Friends with Benefits?
Many people are choosing to forgo traditional relationships and instead, choosing different types of partnerships. One of these pairings is known as a friends with benefits relationship.
Also known as a FWB relationship, when you are friends with benefits, you are friends with someone yet also have sex with them.
Though this might not seem like a good relationship for everyone, and it isn’t, some people really love the freedom that being friends with benefits gives them.
However, if you want to make sure it works as it is supposed to, you need to remember these friends with benefits rules:
1 – Be Clear About Your Intentions
It’s very important for a FWB relationship to work as it should that you lay out the law from day one. Most people get into these relationships because they don’t want to have to deal with things like commitment or dating drama.
It is important that you share your feelings about this with your partner and make sure they agree before you start. (more…)

If you are like many Aussies, you may have a friend with benefits, also known as a FWB or any number of colourful names.
However, sometimes those friends with benefits relationships don’t really work as you think they will and you simply want to go back to being friends.
There is nothing wrong with this, but you will need to go through that awkward FWB breakup period, something that you may be worried about.
The truth is, it is still possible to remain friends after ending a friends with benefits relationship but just like any type of relationship, it’s probably going to take some time.
How to End a Friends with Benefits Relationship

Most of these arrangements are very short term and in most cases, people find that there was a reason they were only friends from the start.
However, if you want to end this relationship, and at the same time salvage your friendship, you have to go through the FWB breakup in the right way. (more…)
