How to Turn (FWB) “Friends with Benefits” into a Real Relationship

by Christal Fuentes

So many women are currently enjoying the “benefits” of having hot sex with a partner while maintaining their independence. I actually think the “it’s impossible for women to sustain a Friends with Benefits relationship” is an absolute fucking MYTH. Did we forget that women are sexual creatures too? Now, I totally understand that women are more wired to crave a bit more but to make that a generalized/ blanket statement would be silly.

WHEW! Now that we got that out of the way, I will say, I’ve been getting tons of emails from my ladies who are currently in a ‘friends with benefits” type relationship, and wonder if it’s possible to turn it into something more.

Something to think about before turning a FWB relationship into something more:

Is this person on the same page as you? And don’t you even act like you don’t know. The truth is, we know but we like to create illusions about people to fit the story we create in our heads about them. So before we go into the rest of the tips, I suggest on how to turn this relationship into something real, I highly encourage you to practice your intuition.

As women, we have the gift of intuition, but sometimes what our intuition has to say isn’t desirable, so I encourage you to ask yourself first, “does this person even have the capacity to give energy to something deeper and am I someone they’d want to do it with?”

Honesty honesty honesty!!! I’m currently in a friends with benifits, when it comes to our personal life we involve each other but in very small and insignificant ways. But the bedroom is all romance and cuddles. But were both supper honest about what we wanted from the beginning. and recently decided to go with the flow! We are going on small dates, and starting to introduce friends to one another. But very causally. Just as friends.
