Last night, as we were having drinks, I asked my friend my question of the week: What do you think about 'friends with benefits'?
Being the 'liberal' person that he is, he surmised that it works out fine if both parties understand and accept the relationship for what it is.

Later on during dinner, he turned the question back on me: What did I think about 'friends with benefits'. What did I think?
Apparently, I had been so interested in figuring out what other people thought, I didn't take much time to think about it myself. With Malibu and ginger ale coursing through my veins, I took a minute to process it.
"Ultimately, I think one person will always see the relationship as more than what is there."
I realize I'm probably speaking about myself. Knowing that I couldn't sleep with someone without having some sort of romantic feelings, me having a 'friends with benefits' relationship (and keeping it strictly about sexual gratification) would be like Star Jones wearing anything from H&M: it just wouldn't fit right.
He told me I was wise.
Well, I'm either that or completely neurotic.
Thank ya'll for your advice!
