Who shouldn’t pursue friends with benefits?Since friends with benefits are not necessarily exclusive, that means recognizing that he may fall for someone else, or you may. In that case, it’s “ciao” to the benefits.Beyond the exclusivity issue, friends with benefits is not a relationship configuration that can work for everyone.Do you tend to be jealous?
Do you always associate sex with love?
Do you fall head over heels for good sexual partners?
Does he or She have romantic feelings for you, whether you reciprocate or not?
If any of the above is true, steer clear of this form of sexual recreation.
I admit that I was a fan of thefriends with benefits model from an early age.
I love being in love, but that sort of attachment doesn’t come around every day.
Friends with benefits — in my life — was just right, several times.
There are additional advantages;
you may no longer be seeking a permanent partner.
You may be content with your family status as is, but remain interested in enjoying a sex life.
And for the busy single mom who is raising children, holding down a job, and doing the work of reinvention — whether the transition after divorce lasts six months or six years –- a friend with benefits can be comfortable, satisfying, and fun.
