You have come across that perplexing couple; today they are intimate, tomorrow comfortably hanging out at the same joint but with different people. Introducing you to the world of friendship with benefits will clear the air.
A web dictionary refers to friends with benefits as an agreement between two people who are both friends and physically attracted to one another to share a sexual relationship.
Neither party is considered committed to the other, and both can start dating someone else at anytime with prior warning. A friend with benefits arrangement is not considered dating, a relationship or even casual dating by most people who use the term.
In a friendship with benefits, no feelings are involved; it’s all about quenching one’s desires.
An online survey indicates that 80 percent of participants in FWBR (Friends with benefits relationship) reported of being familiar with casual sex without love. They just need to have fun with no strings attached.
As many view love as a ghost that no one can get hold of, they resort to only solving their sexual urge and that’s all. Vulnerable characters for FWBR are ones with a reputation of painful past relationships. To them, falling in love is interpreted for getting hurt.
Jealousy is another cause for friends with benefits’ practices. Paying a spouse for hanging out with that hotter chic may need some tit for tat; the ideal helps in the revenge.
Many will do anything for money, even if it means becoming friends with benefits with the ugliest creature on earth.
Adventure is calling! Yes, some people will want to explore different men/women. Bedding them doesn’t mean it’s a relationship, its simply sampling. Friends, they will remain but with no love.
Friends with benefits are another modern world adoption. Like the internet solved the post office fracus, the dot.com generation is using FWBR to do away with the entire love paradox.
