10 Downfalls Of Friends With Benefits. Basically friends with benefits are friends who share an activity that just happens to be mutual sex. The main advantage is sexual availability without significant emotional investment or attachment, especially if both people aren’t emotionally or otherwise available or compatible for having a real romantic relationship with each other..There are disadvantages too to this arrangement.
1. No Direction
A relationship that starts at no boundaries, stays at no boundaries. There is, by no means, any potential for a constructed, serious future with this partner. Once you fall into the comfort of a game with no rules, an unimpeded past time it will stay.
2. You Sell Your Own Value Short
“Friends-with-benefits” relationships encourage an ambiance of selfishness, disrespect, and a lack of responsibility. You are held at a higher regard; you should demand honor, admiration, and reverence.
3. Waste Of Time
Having the enjoyable aspects of a relationship at the tip of your fingers can prevent you from meeting someone new. It eliminates the incentive to meet potential suitors.
4. Catching Feelings
Emotional involvement might arise. It is hard to cease emotions, especially ones that have sexual attachment. Feelings make keeping the “it’s just sex” mindset messy and complicated.
5. It Can Ruin Your Friendship
Once you start having sex, it might be hard to go back to your original friendship. Some claim that it just makes their friendship closer, while others who experienced a messy ending claim their friendship will never be the same.
6. You Might End Up Hurt
Ambiguity sets you up for heartbreak. There is no respected balance of giving and receiving. Eventually, one demands more or holds the other to higher expectations. One will usually feel painful disappointment.
There might be tension over monogamy boundaries, depending on the monogamy preferences of each partner. If one of the FWB wants to go and see or have sex with other people, where does that leave the other FWB and desired availability.
8. The Constant Need For Secrecy
Especially if she is from your group of friends or your social circle. You can’t be seen kissing her publicly and friends can’t know you are doing it. It would make it weird for everyone involved.
9. Feeling Of Uncertainty
You never know when it is going to end or which way it is going. There is always a sense of uncertainty about having a friend with benefits. It always helps knowing clearly and expressing clearly what you want at the beginning.
10. Brutal Honesty
If you are bad in bed, she will let you know. Be prepared to take criticisms. It’s sex that got you into this in the first place and there is nothing wrong in her expecting it to be satisfying.
