Are friends with benefits really a bad idea?

My friends have been telling me friends with benefits are only going to end up with getting hurt. I don't see the big deal.

No. They are a great idea but hard to arrange in practice.

This depends a lot on the two people involved. If there is no emotional attachment on either part, it can work out. But, as soon as one person develops feelings for the other, someone is going to be hurt. If it's two people who have broken up with each other, and are now FWB, likely someone will be hurt.

For most people, yes, this is a bad idea. You might be the exception to the rule but usually no good comes of this whole idea.

It's a great idea, unless there are romantic emotions involved. The most important thing is to be honest and make clear what expectations are involved.

Friends with sexual benefits have even less commitment and support than lovers and fiances, and infinitely less than marriage partners. It is also very lopsided benefit to the male. He does not even have to earn the title "boyfriend".

Yes, it is a bad idea. You need to really consider what you want out of the relationship, and also what is best for both of you.
