    Me and a close friend of mine were on a night out recently and ending up getting together, the same thing happened a few nights later so we've kinda decided on a friends with benefits situation as neither of us want a relationship, Can this actually work without ruining our friendship??

    as long as you dont get attached and dont catch feelings for eachother i guess they can work?

    since youve said your close friends- youve got to realise what the consequences would be of the end result :yep:

    Yeah i think we're both worried about it ruining our friendship or one person getting feelings and the other not but it felt pretty good when we were together! I think thats the main reason we've decided to carry on!

    ahh i see- well catching feelings or falling for someone isnt in your control, you can try and stop it, but in the end it will happen.

    im not trying to burst your bubble here hun, i'm trying to sugar coat it a little- ive had many friends who've been in FwB with close friends of their, some ended in relationships , some broken friendships and a few still friends... so it can really go either way...

    at the end of the day, it's your choice! just do what YOU feel is right

    Perhaps...

    Imo not really. It may seem nice now,, but eventually either one of you will change perceptions and maybe want more, while the other is fixated on the arrangement you got going on right now. Totes awks

    Can only end badly. Soz babes (Why have I put this Essex accent on...)

    Way too young for the ring ting.
    Now you wanna dance on a king ping. Sixty-eight plus one, that's a win-win Time to slide in like a penguin. You don't need ice, no bling bling. No hubby, no wife, just a friend ting. Live your whole life to the ending, There's no point pretending. Let's be friends, with benefits. We can chill, and Netflix.No strings, like Hendrix.Let's pimp, like Kendrick. Let's go deep into a world, that only we can see They can't touch us, they can't judge us cuz we're crazy young and free It's not me troubling you It's not you troubling me Can I trust you not to love me? Let's be FWBs.

    Only if you both strictly commit to it

    sadly mainly men tend to get too attached and always want to ship it
