How many Friends with Benefits arrangements are you actually friends with? It always turns out to be a borderline anonymous booty call.
I give affection and support to friends, and expect it from my friends. I get conversation and little messages that say, “This made me think of you today” from friends. When they move, I’m there hauling shit out to the truck. When they’ve got the flu, I’m delivering a pot of spaghetti for the kids’ dinner that night. That’s what *friends* is about. FWB means “don’t call me, I’ll call you when I have time… for sex.” They say you don’t pay a prostitute for sex, you pay him/her to leave when it’s over. And that’s kinda what these jokers are asking for, a “no strings attached” arrangement so that they don’t have to feel bad for not actually liking you very much. How nice that they can still get sex when they want it.
