Sleeping with a friend

Do you think that two people who are friends with benifits can turn into more of a relataionship? Or will it always be just a sexual relationship? you think if your friends with a man and sleeping with him that is more than just being friends? Thanks

Like if two people hang out and have mutual friends but they sleep together dose that make them more than just friends but not in a realtionship or are they just friends?

  • That doesn't make them more than friends... but friends sometimes end up in relationships (usually in that case though one of the parties does not want a relationship and will run as soon as it starts to look like its headig there)

  • I mean I guess friends with benefits could turn into a relationship but that would have to be a decision made by both parties.. I agree with seturkey when she put that one party might run if they think the other is wanting more out of what is going on... So, usually friends with benefits.. is almost always just a pure sexual relationship. Just take it as what it is.. a toss in the hay or whatever you usually would say.

  • I think it could work, but you have to both be on the same page. My experience with this is that if the guy wants to be friends with benefits he doesn't want to be your boyfriend. Sorry.

  • Just friends in my opinion unless you both agree to be in a relaionship which probably wont happen.

  • as long as the understanding of not crossing the line into relationship is understood, HAVE ALL THE SEX YOU WANT!!!!!!!

  • I think there is a possibility that friends with benefits can become a relationship, if they want to.

  • It sounds like you WANT this friend to be your boyfriend. If that's the case you need to talk to him. Yes, you do run the chance of ending the relationship now to end without him as a friend but it could go the other way and you could find out that he wants a relationship with you as well.
