5 signs it’s time to let go of your friend with benefits


It’s keeping you from dating

When you get into this agreement you make your own terms, but they shouldn’t in any way stop you from dating. The relationship you have with him should solely be based on sexual activities and nothing more. If one of you starts being jealous during the process take this as a red flag and consider cutting each other off.

He’s always on your mind

There’s reason why you’re only friends with benefits and not in a serious relationship, it’s best to keep this at the back of your mind whenever you find yourself day dreaming about him. These kind of relationships are easy going, and fun, once there’s drama it’s time to get out.

You feel uncomfortable

Don’t let people tell you otherwise, having a friend with benefits is fun especially if you’re single. You should be able to talk about it freely with your friends, however when your inner voice tells you  this isn’t what you should be doing listen to it. If your relationship hurts someone else in the process then it’s best you go separate ways.

It’s not fun anymore

The number one rule of having a friends with benefits is that you keep things as casual as you can with no drama. Now, we see no reason to continue with the relationship if the fun and excitement isn’t there anymore. Experts affirm that because initially you didn’t intend on being serious with one another, there will be a time where the excitement dies down, recognise it and accept that your relationship has ran its cause.

One of you gets into a serious relationship

This is one of the rules to put in place at the beginning of your relationship. Should one of get a serious partner you call it quits. Not only is it to protect the new relationship but it’s also to avoid unnecessary drama in your lives.
