Is a ‘Friends With Benefits’ Buddy Really Worth It?


Let’s just pretend for a second that Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake were in an actual, realistic version of friends with benefits. Would they seriously fall in love in the end and be all ridiculously good looking while doing it? NO!


We know how it goes. Everything is awesome at first because it’s like, “Woo hoo! Sex with none of that annoying relationship crap? Count me in!” But then everything goes to crap when one person falls for the other and those pesky little feelings come in and screw everything up. Things can get really messy, really quickly.

There are no real guidelines or rules when it comes to a FWB relationship. Everyone has their own way of dealing with it and having one, but let me just say, that the ONLY way that a friends with benefits relationship works is if both people are 100% totally okay with no lovey-dovey stuff. Otherwise, you’re screwed.

So is FWB a good thing or a bad thing? Is it even worth starting?

Thankfully, the lovely ladies over at Gurl have made things a little bit more clear for us. Head on over there to see what Gurl’s Love & Sex expert, Caitlin, has to say!
