Can We Be More Than Slambuddies? [Ask A Dude]

I got to a point when I wanted sex, but not with someone I wasn't dating...and he didn't want to date me. Finally I caved. So now we're having sex but he's not cuddling anymore. Sometimes I feel like we really are friends and sometimes I just feel like a slambuddy.

Help! I Sexted My Best Guy Friend [Ask Tuffy Luv]

There's always been a mutual sense of harmless flirting to our friendship, however, as we are both single. About a week ago, we were texting each other and the typical flirting began. But then the tone changed and we were suddenly sexting!

What’s a Girl To Do About The Guy Who Keeps Coming Back? [Ask A Dude]

I've been FWB'ing with someone for a while. Over the course of the years we've known each other, we'll occasionally have a huge blow-out argument, after which we go our separate ways. This will last a few months, and then slowly and certainly this guy comes back.

How Do I Get Him a Gift Without Making Him Think I'm Asking to Get Serious? [Ask A Dude]

With the holiday season upon us, I wanted to know if it would be appropriate to get him a gift. I wasn't planning on setting up a formal "gift exchange" dinner or anything, but every now and again I'm in a store and see something that makes me think, "Ahh, he would love this!"

FWB or WTF!? [Ask Tuffy Luv]

Sometimes it seems like we may be "talking" and others it seems like he just wants a friendship, and I'm honestly fine with either. I want to know where we're at so that I don't get unrealistic expectations, but I don't want to bring it up and potentially screw up a good friendship.

Cuddling From the Friend-Zone [Ask Tuffy Luv]

One day I found out through one of his friends that he was seeing someone else...I was pretty heartbroken. I confronted him. He admitted up to it and said that he only saw me as a friend. And me, desperately trying to save face, said the same.

Can Friends With Benefits Ever Really Work? [He Said/She Said]

eah, the majority of cases don't work out - people get too attached, it gets too complicated, there's judgement from other people, or it just ends awkwardly. However, as long as people go into FWB relationships being completely honest about what they expect and what they can handle, it can totally work out.

Why Does Sex Ruin The Friendship? [Ask A Dude]

What Are The Rules To An Open Relationship? [Ask A Dude]

So I’ve heard about people having “open” relationships, but I don’t hear about a lot of them that ever end up well. So I guess my question is: what are the rules to an open relationship?

Ask A Dude: Is It Worth Possibly Ruining The Friendship?

So I'm friends with a great group of guys, and we hang out all the time. I've never thought of most of them as anything more than friends, but there is one that I've started to have a crush on. He's more of a friend of the guys than a close friend of mine, but we know each other and have hung out a few times. I don't want to get friend zoned by him accidentally though. I just don't want to screw up the dynamic of my friends if I make a move on this guy.
