This may span over a series of conversations which both of you as Friends With Benefits would have. Ask him/her if he could envision the both of you together. Establish if he/she feels the same way as you do.
Take time to speak to him/her about this so that your FWB does not freak out and bail out on you as he/she may not feel the same way as you do. He/She may be in just for the sex, so be prepared that you may face rejection.
But, if you never try, you will never know! Take a chance because who knows, your Friends With Benefits may feel the same way too!
Once you are certain that he/she is ready to ditch the f*ck buddy status and move on to a genuine relationship with you, establish exactly what kind of relationship would you both like to be in. You should not at any time be assuming that both of you are on the same page on what a genuine and stable relationship is.
For instance, would you both be fine with deleting the dating apps on your phones? How many times would you both like to meet in a week? When is he going to introduce you to his friends and family?
These are pretty loaded questions, but it is still important to clarify these questions with him. If the conversation gets too heavy, just stop for the time being and make out. You don’t have to bombard him with all the questions at once. Take it slow.
Essentially, understanding clearly what both of you are expecting out of your new relationship would ease the transition. It’s always good to be reassured that things are likely to work out then.
Allow yourselves a reasonable period of time to test out your new relationship status to see if it works out. This allows you to check in on one another and see if this new status change is progressing well, or if it is not working out at all.
For instance, you could give yourselves a milestone check at 3 months to see if you are both adapting to the new relationship transition.
Remember – take things slow. If you feel tension, just kiss and make out. This will take away the pressure about how you both are honestly feeling as the relationship progresses beyond a FWB relationship.
Don’t go soaking up all the unnecessary drama and become unhappy people just because you both are in a genuine relationship.
Be prepared for more squabbles, fights, and drama. It’s completely predictable and both of you should have already anticipated them from the point when you both decided to go serious.
The key thing is to keep the flame alive – don’t stop the activities in the bedroom; keep things interesting – play some games, get some toys.
Recall how you both started out, and be true to both of your roots. If the sex keeps both of you happy, keep going at it (although frankly, it’s tough to with all the emotional baggage).
FWB relationships may begin as something casual, but there is quite a huge likelihood it can develop into a real and stable relationship if both of you are invested in one another.
After all, FWB relationships in Hollywood films such as ‘Friends with Benefits’ starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, and ‘No strings attached’ starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, all have a happy ending.
Who knows? You could end up marrying your FWB and the rest would be history. Just remember to take things slow! Enjoy the dating process.
