How would you take this?

He likened our relationship to Mila Kunis & Justin Timberlake in the movie Friends with Benefits. He said we're more than friends. Would you take this to mean eventually love could form or that we're just F buddies?

  • Never having seen this movie, my response would be "what the hell are you talking about?"

    Ask him what he means. If you cannot ask him this question or any other question on your mind, you should NOT be sleeping with him. Love comes BEFORE sex. If love is not there on both your parts, no more sex.

  • I would take it like he's a dumbass for comparing your relationship to fictional characters in a movie.

  • I don't know how that ends but I'm leaning toward F buddies.

  • Okay, if you haven't seen the movie and don't want it spoiled, you might want to skip over my answer.

    In the movie, they end up getting together in the end. BUT, they are fictional characters. So, with my cynical ways, I'm going to say he's trying to give you hope for a future, but that you shouldn't get your hopes up.

    I love the movie Friends With Benefits - I own it. But it's a movie - and rarely do things in real life happen like they do in the movies. It's a sweet movie, very romantic in its way, but it's still a movie. I would not take it as something that you should get super excited about and start dreaming of a future with him.

    I also would consider the idea that if you can't sit down with him and say, "Can you explain what you meant?", that you are more comfortable asking strangers online than talking to him, could mean that this relationship isn't much of a relationship.

  • i'm completely okay discussing things with him wendy. but today we had limited to talk. he had a 30 min lunch break and had to go. so i didn't really get to discuss it as much as i wanted.
