    9 Tips For Having A Healthy Friends-With-Benefits Relationship

    It's not exactly like the movies.

    1. Choose the right person, because here’s the secret: A friend with benefits isn’t actually your friend.

    2. Be sure that you're both on the same page.

    3. Be honest with yourself about why you want to have a FWB relationship with this person.

    4. Try your best to keep it sex-only.

    5. Be vocal about the kind of sex you actually want to have.

    6. Don't let people judge you or make you feel like you secretly want a relationship.

    7. Maturely break it off if you see that your FWB is developing feelings, but you aren't.

    8. And forgive yourself if you're the one who ends up developing feelings.

    9. Have fun!
