Friends with benefits: two friends that have sex with each other with no strings attached. One of the most casual relationships if its done right. And if not done right it could end in a disaster. These are some commandments that I have come up with, with some past experience.
1. Thou shall pick the right person
This is very important. It can't be a best friend or an ex. This person has to be either someone you know a little bit now a whole lot of someone that you don't know at all.
2. Thou shall set rules before it starts
Setting standards for something like this need to happen. And talking about them before it happens is important, you can't go on and just make rule whenever. It gets complicated that way.
3. Thou shall not catch any feelings
Friends with benefits is something casual and if you get feelings then it ruins that causality.
4. Thou shall only hang out in the bedroom
Don't go to the movies or out to eat because that's a date which leads to feelings. The only date you need is in the bedroom.
5. Thou shall not spend the night
Have sex with them and leave. If you spend the night it opens up the possibility of something else.
6. Thou shall not cuddle
Cuddling is intimate, and it's a nonverbal way to show your feelings for a person. And if you don't have feelings for them why would you cuddle them?
7. Thou shall only have sex
Your friends with one extracurricular activity and that extracurricular activity is having sex.
8. Thou shall use protection
Especially if you guys are sleeping with other people.
9. Thou shall explore their desires
This is a great chance to try your fantasies and see what you like during sex.
10. Thou shall have good communication
Depending on how this is going to last, you gonna want to check up on how they feel about.
11. Thou shall read them
Sometimes people are not going to say everything that they think so you also have to read
12. Thou shall not introduce to friends or family
If you start introducing them to people you have to label them. Also, people will start to ask questions about who they really are.
13. Thou shall be open to relationships
This is a casual relationship so be open to a relationship with someone else you might meet. Don't cut off relationships with other people because you never know how this will end.
14. Thou shall accept what happens in the end
If it ends in a relationship that's okay and if it ends without a relationship that's okay too.
15. Thou shall have fun
It's casual, so have fun with it.
