    Is a friend with benefits the same as Fuck buddy?

    And if so, how do you know if you have have become a fuck buddy for someone else? Some times we may think that we are "dating" the guy but what clues should you pay attention to regarding becoming that guy's mere fuck buddy or friend with benefit?

    To me...dating also includes romance.....without romance you're just a fuck buddy or friend with benefits. icon_neutral.gif

    I think there is a difference between a fuck buddy and a FWB. I think a FWB should be a friend first, and a fuck buddy is someone where the fucking comes first, if that makes any sense.

    If you go out socially together , your a friend w/benefits.
    If you just stay in the house and screw, your a fuck/buddy....

    What he said...and if there's romance/emotion attached to the sex then you're headed into boyfriend territory.

    Honestly, if it's something that's starting to mess with your head, then clear it up with the other person.

    I'd be willing to test all the "options" out with you to see the differences! LOL!
    If you have "questions" about your relationship status, you have a "communication" issue in the relationship.....you need to have a sit down and discuss what you both want from the relationship......communication and shared emotion and socializing together is a start into a boyfriend relationship, no communication means no shared emotions with sex = Fuck Buddy....nothing wrong with a fuck buddy as long as both sides understand the nature of the relationship....FWB is a limited amount of communication and shared emotions and socializing under certain conditions.......sort of like having your "work spouse" or a close friend/Confidant in a special, exclusive setting (work, or church, the gym, etc), when you see that person outside of those special settings it is almost uncomfortable of awkward...that would be similar to a FWB....the lines get fuzzy and any of these can morph into the other over time and as experiences are shared.......

    x2

    Figuring out if you're dating does get a bit trickier. I think the other suggestions about romance is true, but I think romance OUTSIDE the bedroom. Romantic sex seems to be the norm with me lol.

    yup... if sex is all you have in common then he´s a FB. I much prefer FBs to random hook ups... icon_rolleyes.gif Especially when they look like this (though my gymnast is blond):
