Should friends with benefits cuddle?

I've been sleeping with this guy for a while now, and it seems that he doesn't want anything serious, but I do like him. He's pretty socially awkward and I'm the first girl he's slept with or had a thing with- so I don't think he really gets it sometimes.

However, do you think it's okay that he cuddles me and acts loving when we are together?

Is this normal? I've never had a fwb before.

Yeah... I forgot to mention that we have the same friends and are in the same group so there's all these blurred lines... it's a very odd situation

This reminds me of girls I've slept with, but decline when I try to kiss them because that would make them emotionally attached.

If you can repeatedly have sex without getting attached, then in theory cuddling should be fine. But it really depends on what signifiance/meaning you ascribe to cuddling.

Is a fwb relationship "normal" in the first place?

Maybe I am a tad old fashioned, but for me there are "relationships", and then there are meaningless shags.

I don't see how the two go together, but as I say, maybe that is just me.

Don't you want to be in a loving, sexual relationship? Are you not good enough for that? Don't you deserve it?

Are you sure you want that kind of complicated relationship?

I think, considering the friends part, it shouldn't be weird at all to cuddle. It's cuddling, not exchanging vows.
