Friends with benefit is an awkward situation singles put themselves in that they regret every time they have sex with this “friend”, because they are investing time, energy and emotion to another individual who is not committed to them while they can go and invest the time, energy and emotion (money too) in finding the right individual.
I always tell my single clients that when they’re out on a first date with someone and there is romantic chemistry and if you want to kiss the other person, go for it! Kiss and stop there. When you feel like you want to have sex with this individual at that moment, STOP and ask yourself this question – “Is this person someone I can see myself have a serious relationship with?” If your answer is no, then don’t have sex with them. (period)
