|The term “Friends with Benefits”
is a term used to describe two people who are trusting and honest friends,
but also provide sexual satisfaction when they each lack a steady significant
other. On MutualArrangements.com, gorgeous young people and mature men
and women seek friendships that are mutually beneficial. The following
is a list of the benefits of being FWBs.
1. Emotional Support
A FWB’s main role is to be a friend and a friend’s main role is to
be supportive emotionally. FWBs can cry on each other’s shoulders, share
a good laugh over drinks, or enjoy pillow-talk late into the night.
Of course, Friends
with Benefits benefit sexually. You can say goodbye to the blues, because
your Friend with Benefits will be there to please you as sure as you please
him or her.
Friends with benefits know that the connection is not a love relationship.
This is understood by both parties and results in a totally honest friendship
free of emotional baggage.
4. No Strings Attached
Because of the honesty between two FWBs, this is an NSA – a no
strings attached relationship. Neither party has to feel pressured
into being more than a friend, nor into saying ILY… unless they mean it.
Friendships are based on trust. The relationship is about support and
honesty and sharing scars – whether physical or emotional. If a person
feels insecure about his or her body, a friend with benefits can soothe
the feelings of anxiety. Such a trusting relationship can help a friend
overcome personal, physical obstacles and blossom into an independent person.
6. Date Other People
Due to the basic tenet of honesty between two FWBs, both can honestly
date other people without jealousy interfering in the friendship. This
works out especially well if both sides of the relationship are seeing
other people but aren’t ready to commit physically to a new romantic interest.
While pillow talk might not focus on Friends
with Benefits’ future plans together, it can amount to navigating confusing
relationships with other people. FWBs can provide insight into the psychology
of the opposite sex - and because of the trust and honesty that keeps the
relationship afloat, these conversations can be held without inciting jealousy.
A FWB relationship is convenient. At all hours of the night and day,
you can call your friend without fear of seeming too needy, and without
games, protracted flirtation, or false charades.
9. Mutual Satisfaction
Real friends want to see their friends happy. Unlike during a hookup
with a random romantic or a one-night stand, this kind of mutual respect
yields mutual sexual satisfaction.
10. Real Romance
Finally, while friends with benefits tend to remain just friends until
both parties go their separate ways with new significant others, there
is the chance that real romance might arise between the two people. A FWB
relationship is built upon trust, honesty, and respect, after all – all
that’s missing is a romantic spark.
