If you feel you need to connect with someone as a friend… If you feel like you want a boyfriend, then start a relationship with a guy from the foundation of creating that kind of relationship.
As a rule, though, never put your FWB into a role that is outside the arrangement (which is pure sexual enjoyment and exploration).
If you notice strong negative reactions coming up in him… Even if you are great at following the first six rules, everything will come apart if you choose a guy who isn’t emotionally stable.
I’m not saying that you’re sleeping with multiple people, but it’s important that you keep your options open and keep yourself in the dating market.
This rule is what makes the difference between a fun, light, satisfying FWB situation…
and a messy, disastrous, regretful relationship situation.
and they succeed if the other person isn’t in a stable place herself.
Just because you’re not a couple doesn’t mean that you can slack off on being your sexiest self.
