    I have a bit of a problem. A very close friend of mine lives 600 km away from me. We are in contact for 6 years now. I think that I have been beginning to fall in love with this person. Although he is not attractive for me we get along very well and I like his ways. I think I admire his personality. I have kept inviting him for a few months. He just denied. Then he came up with a special offer. He wants to have sex between friends. He would be fine with that. But I think that this is a big problem for me. I think I want something more than sex. He does not want to have a relationship over such a long distance. I understand his point but what should I do????

    should I invite him for sex and having some fun but feeling more than that???? I want him but not only for sex. I can´t really differentiate love and purse sex. I used to have sex with a person I am in love with. He does not understand my point.


    what to do now? could you give me some advice please? would help a lot.

    He's really not into you and he definitely doesn't love you, if you were there with him, he'd only use you for sex. Don't invite him over to have sex. Just find someone closer to home.

    but I do want to have sex. but not with the same intention. It would be ok to have sex with him because we both want it. but I want something more, which he does not want to give.

    I don´t get the point. sorry. what do you mean by having no strings sex??? you mean sex attached with conditions? Could you paraphrase it, please?

    I fear it a frustrating point to give sex and hoping for more. I never had sex with a "friend". what is afterwards? everything has changed, hasn´t it?

    You have answered your own question.
    You're already in love with him. You can't differentiate between love and sex. He can, and he only wants your body. You are not cut out for being f-buddies and he doesn't want to go out with you.
    It's rule number 1 for casual sex: don't participate in it when you're in love with someone, but its all they're offering you.

    welll..

    basically, you personally can't separate sex from love

    therefore it'd be a very bad idea for you to engage in such behaviour

    no strings means no complications/other feelings. in your case you want something more than sex.

    so I would avoid it

    Sex is likely to make you feel even more strongly about him, it would be very emotionally damaging for you to do this.

    You are in different worlds. Leave it now before you get hurt. Love includes sex. Sex does not include love.

    Mark my words, if you have sex with him, this will only end in tears - but it will be YOUR tears, not his.
