There is a tremendous difference between real, true love and unhealthy obsession or fixation… It is true and pure – you don’t need them to be any certain way.Heck, you don’t even need them to be your boyfriend or lover. You just love having them in your life and they love being in yours, whether it’s as friends, as lovers, or as life partners.
You lucky readers get to learn from mine and my friends’ mistakes so you can avoid the pitfalls and skip straight to the pleasures of having a FWB 🙂 .
Dating implies that dating process of elimination, dating many people to narrow it down to the one who you want to then start seeing more seriously.

It’s certainly possible, but it requires that you look at things honestly and set clear boundaries for yourself. (aka: how to have a friends with benefits arrangement without drama, difficulty, or disaster) This means no neighbors, no co-workers, no ex-boyfriends, no guys that are currently your friend and no people within your social circle.
It also requires that you know yourself – some women can have a friends with benefits arrangement with a guy and have absolutely no problem with it… It’s a mixture of biology, personality, and psychology that will determine if you’re someone who can do it or not… I am not encouraging or advocating having a friends with benefits arrangement in your life or as a lifestyle. I’m simply answering your question and speaking to what friends with benefits rules will lead to the most successful results – those results being to get what you want without hurting anyone (including yourself) in the process. Really, the term “friends with benefits” is misleading because having a FWB arrangement is sleeping with a guy who’s your friend.A friends-with-benefits arrangement can leave you satisfied, glowing and happy (which certainly beats frustrated and prone to overeating in front of your television set.) Before settling down with my Love King, I had my share of Friends with Benefits (FWB’s for short! I learned, through trial and error, that there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about having this kind of relationship.
