Turn your FWB into a lover


Having a friend with benefits is great because there’s no commitment. But what about when someone starts to catch feelings?

Be honest about your feelings

If you’re not good at dropping hints, the best idea is to be upfront with him instead of beating around the bush. Come out with it and admit that you’ve caught feelings. Have an open and honest conversation and be prepared to let him go if he doesn’t feel the same way.

Work on yourself

Love yourself more than you love him, he will love you more for that! A secure woman who knows what she wants yet isn't desperate is extremely attractive and desirable. Once you become that woman, commitment is a matter of finding the right match.

Don’t act clingy

Don't assume that acting like a clingy girlfriend will make him actually want to be in a relationship. It's only going to drive him away. I know you’ve caught feelings but don't start calling or texting him constantly or getting mad when he can't hang out, that's going to push him away.

Talk deeper

In order to get him to develop deeper feelings for you, you guys need to have both an emotional and physical connection. After hooking up, talk about serious stuff.

Take him out

Try to get him to go out with you once in a while. You have to be sneaky, bring up a movie you think he'll be interested in and when he says he can't wait to see it, say something like, "how about we go watch it together.
