10 Tips On How To Make Your Friend With Benefits Your Boyfriend

I’ve never kept it a secret that I think friends with benefits type relationships are a horrible idea. When they start off, they sound great – you have someone to hang out and hook up with when you feel like getting frisky, but you don’t have the obligations of a relationship to deal with. Who wouldn’t want something as light and easy as that?

The problem with friends with benefits is that everyone thinks they can handle it, but the majority of people cannot. Once you start having an intimate relationship with someone you like (and obviously you like them if you’re hooking up with them, I don’t care what you say), it’s natural to eventually start to want something more serious. It happens all the time. Since most girls go into a FWB swearing up and down that they won’t get attached, they freak out when they do get attached and sometimes end up doing the wrong thing.

Truthfully, it’s really, really difficult to make your friends with benefits your boyfriend. In most cases, I think it’s impossible. Once a guy sees that he can get what he wants without having to really do anything back for you, it’s hard for him to change the way he sees the relationship he has with you. However, there are some people out there that swear that it can happen. If you’ve recently fallen head over heels for your friend with benefits, here are 10 tips that might make him your boyfriend. Good luck!

    I do have a FWB, and I did fall for him. Although I didn’t know we would be FWB when we started seeing each other. He’d just broken up with his girlfriend of 6 years, which I didn’t know at the time. We’ve been seeing each other for 9 months now, are best friends, and, though I wish things would work out as I want them to, I’m resigned that we’ll never be together. I still have some hope. We spend most of every day together, practically live together, and I’m closer with him than anyone else. But I’d like not to give myself false hope. Regardless, he knows I’m in love with him, and if friendship is all I get, I can content myself with that.

    I used to have an fwb with a guy I had been friends with for a few years. I wanted more but could never tell if he wanted more or not. After probably 6 months when we realized how well we got along and how much fun we had together we decided we would try out a real relationship. We dated for a couple of years but he never quite treated it like it was official. He didn’t want to tell anyone except people who were around us together like our friends. The relationship just never seemed to go anywhere. Fwbs definitely have the potential to be more if you really are friends. However, in my experience it doesn’t work out well. I honestly don’t think 99% of guys are able to respect that you are a modern woman who is comfortable with her sexuality. Like the article says, most guys need the chase. It’s definitely worth a shot, just make sure you are getting what you need too.

    I have a fresh friends with benefits relationship with a guy that I want something more with. I’m kinda settling for this relationship because it’s the only kind I can have with him.

      I fully and understand what you’re saying. I’m going through the exact situation. A part of me wants to tell him & get it over with because it’s not gonna end the way I want it to. :(

    My husband thought it would be sexy if I slept with his buddy, so he kept bringing him over until I finally agreed and we became friends with benefits. My husband and I have been having problems a long time and now I kinda want to leave him and date my friend with benefits but I don’t know if he would want to be that serious :/ he takes me out for dinner and we even went to a theme park together but I’m not sure if he’s just being nice or is falling in love with me too :(
