If you've ever had one of these relationships, you know that they can be very tricky.
There is a lot of grey area to navigate in an increasingly casual affair.
I have seen extremely successful f*ck buddy relationships in which ultimately, the two people stay friends and remain completely cordial.
But, I have also seen the dark side where one person's feelings get hurt and the whole relationship pretty much blows up in their faces (metaphorically, not physically).
You can get the cream in the cupcake without any effort! But in reality, not everyone can handle what such a relationship requires, so check out some of the pros and cons for a Gen-Yer to have a f*ck buddy: Some of us are very busy and don't have time for a full-blown relationship.
Some of us just don't want one because of the drama they generally bring.
I repeat, run away and go buy a vibrator, or something.
If you are someone who falls in love every other day, then a “f*ck buddy” isn't for you.My girlfriend has been a close friend for almost 20 years before we started dating. I'm a 40 years-old man with 2 kids, she's 38 with 3 kids. To me, it is easier to date women than to make new friends.When you are a 20-something person, you have needs and unless you want to sleep with a bunch of people, a f*ck buddy is the perfect way to meet your needs without blowing up your numbers.It's the type of relationship where you can have hot sex, then high five and peace out.If you're going to be attached, you are guaranteed to get screwed (emotionally, after you get screwed physically).
