So what exactly happens when you and your partner decide that it just isn’t working out, or what happens when you and a friend decide to take it too far? Many times in this life we find ourselves in compromising situations that we know we have no business being in. And having a friend with benefits is definitely classified as one of those situations. A good example of this is when you’ve been in a relationship with someone and both of you mutually decide or one of you may decide that it isn’t working out and decide to go your seperate ways. Yet, you still find your paths crossing and doing the same things that you used to do when you were together. Another scenario may be, that the both of you were friends and now you find yourself crossing the line of what friends would normally do. How do you handle a situation like that or is this situation even a healthy one. Well let me say from my personal experiences that a frienship with benefits can cause you to lose a whole lot more than you bargained for. Once you have crossed that line with someone that was once your friend, you do risk losing that frienship and so much more. Now I am not saying that this can’t be a positive thing because maybe it can lead to a long lasting relationship but I really wouldn’t bet on it ending this way the majority of the time. A lot of times we find ourselves caught up in the moment and we really don’t take the time to think about what we’re doing until it is in fact too late. I think keeping our friendships separated from relationships is very important because in the end it can save you from a lot of heartache. If you want the frienship to be something more than what is then then address that to your friend and go from there but don’t put your heart or self out there and find yourself too deep that you forget that the initial intentions were never there for a long lasting relationship.
