In today’s fast moving and liberal society many people are deciding against long-term relationships and instead opting to engage in fuck buddy relationships that fulfill their sexual needs without relationship commitments. However, there are certain “rules” or “expectations” that you should be aware of before hooking up with a fuck buddy.
- Establish the Ground Rules in Advance
A fuck buddy is not a girl / boy friend and a boy / girl friend is not a fuck buddy. There is a big difference in the dynamics of the relationship and in order for the fuck buddy relationship to be successful and enjoyable for both parties it is best to have some mutual, clearly understood ground rules in place. Ground rules can focus on when, where, what, how etc. etc. Having rules can prevent things from getting messy and ensure both parties are happy with the arrangement.
- Some Chemistry / Attraction
While you don’t need to be as picky with a fuck buddy there should be some mutual physical attraction or chemistry between you.
- Romance is Not Required
While respect and good manners are a requirement romantic gestures or dates are not required and can indeed lead to confusion. It’s all about the sex so “wooing” is not required.
- Always Use Protection
There is nothing like an unwanted pregnancy or a sexually transmitted infection (STI) to take the fun out of a fuck buddy relationship so always, always, always use protection – no exceptions, no excuses! It’s simple common sense really.
- Know When to Call It
Fuck buddies should have fun and a good time together – that is afterall the purpose of it! If it stops being fun, if it gets weird or if you meet someone you want to pursue romantically then it is time to end your fuck buddy relationship.
