There are several benefits to having a No Strings Attached-style friend with benefits — come to think of it, that’s probably why they call it a friend with benefits — but in a nutshell, you get to have sex with no commitment and no drama. The whole thing almost sounds too good to be true.
And that’s because it is.
The whole friends with benefits thing (or FWB as they call it on the streets) simply can’t work long-term. Eventually, one person is going to start getting emotionally involved — and yes, it’ll probably be the girl because that’s what girls do. That said, if you know what you’re doing you can carry on a FWB relationship for a little while, and even end it without losing the friend entirely. And I’m going to tell you how to do that.
No need to thank me. That’s what friends are for.
