2011-JAN 04 – Relationships are becoming more & more obsolete because intimacy is the main focus for many people. Friends with Benefits or a “Jump Off” is not an actual relationship, but more of a lustful romance with no strings attached. Men love these types of flings, but what about us women? Can we really handle being intimate with someone on a regular basis without developing serious feelings? Well, I know plenty of women who are able to maintain a clear mind and know that it’s just “Benefits,” but others get wrapped inside of the act of making love and begin to fall in love. Is falling in love a bad thing? It is if you’re the one who is doing the falling and it is not reciprocated because this is a risky relationship and an easy line to cross. So ladies if you’re going to engage in a “Friends with Benefits” type of guy, ensure that both of you understand how these types of relationships work. IT IS STRICTLY SEXUAL. Be sure that this is what you truly want, and make sure the “good getting” is on your time and terms, not his!
