Simple rule for dating
Cuddling encourages intimacy which is a no-no with a friend with benefits. If you find out they’re interested in someone, that’s okay, they’re not cheating on you. After a few nights of what’s hopefully amazing sex, don’t feel forced to start doing date-like things like going shopping together, seeing a movie, or—in Carrie Bradshaw’s case on “Sex and the City”—inviting them to dinner because you connect so well in the bedroom, you assume it’ll translate elsewhere.
As Carrie learned with the less-than-scintillating Mc Fadden: Keep your chemistry contained to the bedroom where it belongs.
You need to make sure that you’re open about everything. The main point of having a FWB is to have amazing, satisfying sex.
to be with a man who knows his way around women: a man who knows how to treat a lady, who knows exactly what to say and do... Unfortunately, the "stuff" they normally do to ‘convince’ a younger woman to like him back actually end up pushing her further away...
even though it seems like the right thing to do at the time!
Let’s be honest, having friends with benefits can be incredibly convenient—all the fun, none of the planning-your-future-together—but there are rules.
And, lucky you, we’re so ready to dish up some juicy FWB advice.
