Being Friends With Benefits Is Actually Imposible
The Odyssey Online

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS DOES NOT WORK! Sorry, I had to be so blunt. I had to start this week's blog with a bang. The term "friends with benefits" is supposed to mean two friends that have a legitimate friendship, then become sexually active with each other and preserve the friendship.

This type of thing can be okay with a close friend. It becomes complicated when one or both of the individuals have multiple friends with benefits because the girl can be looked at as a hoe. Then if the two are only having sex with each other, feelings usually become involved.

Also, this does not work if the two do not start off as friends, if they start off as something more, than it doesn't work out for whatever reason, but continue having sex down the line, things tend to get complicated. They become complicated when the relationship continues, just because there were complications, that does not mean the feelings just go away.

There was a whole movie about this called Friends with Benefits, where the two started off as friends with benefits, but ultimately fell for each other, but tried to deny it. If either one catches feelings, or both, it will always get complicated when sex is involved. For this to work, there needs to be a crystal clear explanation, that this is just sex and a friendship. There will never ever be a relationship in the future. You hit me up when you want sex, or I can do the same, we will still remain friends, but we are not in a relationship.

This tends not to work because guys like to lie or sugar coat the truth in the beginning. Then girls usually are the ones that catch feelings. I would not advise this for anyone because it usually gets complicated in the end.
