Friends with Benefits

We were talking about FWB (friends with benefits) the other night, and each of us girls was describing what would make a good buddy. I think I was the only who said she would go for someone who was moderately attractive. In my opinion, I feel like I would end up liking my buddy if he was too good looking, and end up developing feelings for him. I'd rather have an average Joe (still have a desirable body, just an okay face) because I'd feel more comfortable with them.

Is this what I was essentially using OkCupid for? Possible FWBs to avoid getting into any relationship and prevent myself from suffering any possibly heartbreak?


  1. Hi, first comment here, enjoy your blog very much.

    Although I don't have an answer, that is some interesting analysis. On the plus side, if you do end up falling for the average joe, it means he would have to be a really great guy.

  2. FWB is tough. It takes a certain kind of person to pull it off because something happens. I don't know if it's hormones, natural instinct, what...but over time it seems women always develop a disturbing attraction for the men they're having sex with. That's what I've heard from everyone who tried something like that, anyway...
