    Are there any? I currently have 3.One of them is my ex and we were together for like 2 months and then I broke up with him because I couldn't handle "relationships" and we decided to stay friends and kept seeing each other for sex basically and I did make it clear it was very much a non relationship thing. He still does things like text me goodnight and morning and give me advice and make me food when I come over so I do feel this is like a relationship without commitment. I don't think he is sleeping with other people but he knows I am so he probably will soon. Anyway I was talking to my friend and she was like he clearly still likes you but you are leading him on but I have made me it VERY clear that I'm just not ready for relationships and I am seeing other people so surely he can't stay liking me for long right? Anyway I just wanted to know if there are any consequences to what I'm doing since I have made everything clear as to not lead him on etc and I do think he'll stop liking liking me when he starts seeing other girls.

    If hes still that into you, have a real chat making your expectations and loyalties clear. It seems you still wish to maintain a friendship and thats a bit more difficult given the circumstances but im sure he'll understand. Maybe you can even try hook him up with some of your friends to make it platonic.

    Considering he's been made fully aware that you're not in any form of commitment with him, then I don't see how this could really come back to bite you. Though obviously cut it out if you do find someone that you do want a relationship with :cute:

    The real problem with a friends with benefits is usually someone always gets feelings then it starts to get messy.

    You can make it as clear as you like, if the dude is still getting at you, in the back of his mind he's prolly gonna want to lock down.

    Nah you are leading him on
    With FWb there's always a risk of someone gettin emotions.
    If they do you'll just ave to be honest with them and cut them loose before it becomes worse
    But that is normally avoidable if you both mutually decide on this
    Thats why I don't do FWB anymore it's such a joke no offense but it's like childish games
    FWb is pretending they're being mature since they're having sex and nothing else
    but they just dont wanna feel the dirt of having an ONS/one nighter but actually its really immature.
    Just have a friggin ONS or a get in relationship or leave eeach other alone
