I’d love to read your own experience with a FWB situation and answer any question you have in the comments below.
Experience is the best teacher of all and this particular experience was an eye-opener and game-changer for sure. I met up with a friend one Saturday afternoon at a bar for a football game. He was cute, charming, and we seriously hit it off right away.Our afternoon of fun turned into a night out and me, my friend, J, and his friend bar-hopped, talked, laughed, danced, and played pool until the wee hours.I reluctantly approached him, “Um hey, are you ready to go? When we stepped outside, he grabbed me, and kissed me.I looked at him, stunned, “Sorry, I forgot how pretty you are.” The only thought resounding in my head was WTF?!?Before heading home, J and I planned a date for that Thursday.
We exchanged numbers, kissed, said our goodbyes, and I left feeling quite pleased with myself, knowing that I had played my cards right. I wasn’t expecting a call on Monday or Tuesday because of the ‘rules’ and all that, but by Wednesday night I started to feel a little panicked. By 7 pm I had two choices: resign myself to the fact that he isn’t into me, or do something I had never, ever done before- call him. As the phone rang I practiced the message I would leave on his voicemail in my head but was interrupted when, to my astonishment, a very perplexed-sounding J answered the phone.Once you’ve hit day four all hope dissipates and you must sadly accept the fact that you will never be hearing from him.However, it wasn’t until I broke the rules that I realized this type of situation can’t be so easily explained or dismissed.See you soon.” At this point, I was absolutely panicked.I almost called him back to cancel the whole thing.If the phone call was that awkward I didn’t even wanna think about how awful an actual date would be!
