Can people still have some kind of relationship?

Can there still be any kind of relationship between being in a serious relationship and just being friends with benefits? Can two people just date without being serious and still have some kind of a relationship?

  • Sure, as long as both people are on the same page. I'd reevaluate the relationship periodically just to make sure you are still both satisfied with things as they are.

  • If that's how both people want it. Is it monogomous, or is there an understanding that both people can date others as well?

    While I think that kind of relationship can go on for quite a while, I would think eventually one of the pair would want something more meaningful with someone they want to be committed to.

  • Sure. It all boils down to wants, needs and communication.

  • It can work but you both need to be upfront about it so you both have the same understanding.

  • If it's truly what they both want, yes.

  • I certainly did. We are still friends to this day but the benefits stopped a long time ago :)

  • It can work for a while. But usually ends up with one wanting more.

  • It happens a lot!

    Answer by KTElite at 10:34 PM on Sep. 28, 2013

  • yes, but there has to be so much communication, because as soon as the other person wants more of less, then no it can't work anymore.

  • I think a lot of us have done this at one time or another...but it normally ends up in a romantic thing for me...and I get attached
