FWB vs LTR

MichelleIt seems like everyone I meet these days is either a friend (with benefits), or just a person passing briefly through my life.

I am flush with FWB but fresh out of LTRs.

My life coach has advised me to abstain from FWB relationships and wait for the right person to come along.

In theory, I like the idea.

In practice, I hate it.

Who knows where my significant other is? If I were to hazard a guess, I’d suspect he is dallying with his FWBs wondering where the heck I am.

But this brings up a good question… do FWB relationships interfere with meeting the Right One? Do they distract you too much from the goal of meeting someone really special who will hold a place in your heart?

I’d like to say no, but lord knows I’ve fallen for more than one of my FWB even though I knew we had no long term relationship potential.

On the other hand, it’s hard to be single all the time and not get any affection from a partner. Having a FWB could keep you satisfied and prevent you from throwing yourself at the wrong person just because you’re so damn lonely.

Perhaps if I was a more solitary person.

Perhaps if I was less gregarious and social.

Perhaps if my hormones were toned down.

Then I could abstain from frisky business with my FWBs and my reliance on my FWBs would be diminished so I could meet someone special.

Perhaps, but I’m not holding my breath.
