FWB Dating: How to Make a Casual Relationship Work
Can anyone help me with this? I have an offer from a guy who I know for a FWB kind of deal and want to get clear in my head what to expect. I've ju. there may be a lack of correct terminology when defining a relationship or lack thereof. There is no reason to freak out. 1 date +1 date. The meaning of the acronym FWB is friends with benefits. A friend with benefits is someone that you sleep with but aren't technically dating. A friend with benefits.
We met on Tinder where I specifically told her I was only looking for a fwb. We saw each other once or twice a month for a year, very casually, before things started really heating up. We were perfect together in and out of bed. It became clear that we should just be together. She was beautiful and successful and had a lot of friends, I was living with my parents and trying to get my life together.
One day she told me she was seeing someone else and caught the hurt look in my eye.

I was attracted with her enough to sleep with her, initially, and the more we started hanging out laughing in bed and talking, the more I liked her as a person.
I kept sleeping with her which was a big mistake and I fell into a pretty bad depression.
There was something about those nights with her in my arms that made me open up to the possibility of being together. She had kind of entered into the agreement with that notion, so we started officially dating after just a month of trying to be casual. We were good friends before we decided to start sleeping together with no promises or strings attached, but of course that only deepened our bond and brought us close together.
We were inseparable soon after, that was 9 years ago. It was a dream I had that I was about to act on, but my feelings for her made me stay.
She makes me feel completely loved and cared for in and out of the bedroom. We cuddled like we were lovers. She was always touching me, even if we were just watching TV getting ready to wind down and go to bed together. The feeling of closeness we developed was intoxicating. After a few months I told her I had to be with her officially or walk away.
I slept with her and pursued more for two years, but she never came around. I finally got the resolve to walk away, but it was almost a year before I stopped hurting over her. You generally talk minimally in order to ensure your feelings stay as far away from your sex filled relationship as possible. But the line and boundaries drawn in a FWB relationship are never crystal clear.
It could be feelings, jealously, complications, or whatever your personal experience with your FWB turned out like. He brought up a relationship, and kinda immaturely I laughed in his face. The relationship lasted about six months, but it was a good ride. I remember thinking he was soooooooo fucking hot and wanting him really badly.

For the next two years we spent countless nights together, and it was seriously the best sex I ever had. Then one day, after he left, I realized I missed him. Not just his body. I brought up the idea of dating, and he was really hesitant. But after talking about it, he both decided to give it a shot. I told him that I thought he could be something more, and he got mad. He ended up coming over and we talked about. He decided to give a relationship a chance, and so far so good!
I would always catch him, and the lies were just so unbearable. But we kept having sex, because he was good in bed and I am very…needy. One day I brought up the idea of us dating again, and he said he liked what we had atm. Eventually we talked more about it and we decided to try an open relationship. We would do it all the time in his car, in hotels, at work.
I felt guilty about what I was doing to his wife, and asked him to leave her. On the other hand, we want to stay close to the guy we are crushing on.
In my case, I tried to be up-front and honest when I knew I was feeling something more than just sex. He was really understanding about it, and decided to take it day-by-day and told me we could stop having sex if I wanted.
We had always been inseparable, but our relationship was always strictly platonic.
