Wow... re: Quelsen's post
But then I guess my perspective as a female looking for a f*buddy wouldn't apply to guys on the hunt because that is completely skewed!
Back when I was single and had buddies... well, lets just say that it wasn't a problem.
My issue was that I eventually broke it off with two guys because they moved into the "wanting more" category.
But... I NEVER presented to a guy as if I wanted to "date"... I always made it painfully clear it was a FWB situation ONLY right from the get go.
I generally selected a guy that I sort of knew socially (this was before dating sites) that I knew I wouldn't want to really date but I had some chemistry with and who I got along with in other areas as friends/drinking/sports/motorcycles/ just general buddies. So not a dating site situation.
As a woman I guess I come at the whole situation from a very different angle... I feel like no one should be misled in the situation. If a guy tells me upfront that he wants to "date" then after sex it's just f*buddy status that's some kinda bitch shit IMO.
Date hols the connotation of trying to form a long term relationship.
I think the lying part is bullshit.
I had a guy as a FWB for over a year once... we both dated other people to see if we could find someone we really liked...
But at the end of the night we both had someone to go to for great reliable wonderful guaranteed sex whether we had a dud date, no date, or whatever... where the other person knows all the buttons to push and is familiar and comfortable with the kink.
It was a great relationship for what it was while it lasted...
I don't think two people need to be in love to enjoy each others company and have fun, including sex.
