Who wants to deal with relationships anymore? They’re so much time, energy, and the breakup is always a huge emotional mess that no one wants to clean up. If you’re young, or just carefree, you would do better without relationships and could really benefit with a fuckbuddy instead. So what is this? It’s exactly as it sounds. It’s someone who is only in your life for only one reason: to sleep with. Yup, that’s it. No dates, no fighting, no commitment, just pure fun sex. Sounds ideal, right? To some yes. But some people continue to ruin their situation by doing particular things that we will discuss today. So if you want a fuck buddy who will fuck for free, and don’t want to fuck it up, then this article is perfect for you.
1. Don’t sleepover.
Sleeping over is a very intimate thing that you only should do with your boyfriend, girlfriend, or person you’re dating. AKA do not ever sleep over at your fuck buddies house. You have got to trust us on this, because sleeping over is a recipe for disaster. You and your fuckbuddy are only using each other for one thing: sex. Sleeping over gives off the vibe that you want something more serious and intimate, which is contradicting to your setup. More than likely, once you’re done having sex, the person just wants you to leave. Why drag it out? So sleeping over is guaranteed to stop your hookups for good.
2. Don’t get jealous.
No one likes someone who gets bit by the jealousy bug, and honestly getting jealous is a bad feeling too. The best part about fuckbuddies is the fact that you can still play the field. There is no commitment and no such thing as cheating, so getting jealous is strictly forbidden. There’s a reason your fuckbuddy doesn’t have a girlfriend or boyfriend: they don’t want to deal with the drama of relationships. And you guessed it, jealousy is something they don’t want to deal with either. Getting jealous over someone that isn’t even yours makes you look crazy. If you’re the type of person that gets jealous easily then you should not be in this casual situation.
3. Don’t blow their phone up.
We all get annoyed when someone blows our phone up, and fuckbuddies are no different. The fastest way to never get a call or text back from your fuckbuddy is by blowing their phone up. It makes you seem desperate and immature, and no one wants to deal with that. Even people in relationships get annoyed when their partner blows them up, so fuckbuddies get even more irritated. Your setup is supposed to be very casual and only about sex. So, if you’re not texting about when to meet up to bang, you shouldn’t be talking at all.
4. Don’t get feelings for them.
This is a biggie. Gaining feelings for your fuckbuddy is the worst thing you can do, because chances are they don’t feel the same way back. This person isn’t interested in dating you for a reason, they just want sex, as bad as that sounds- you’re the one who agreed to it. If you think there’s any part of you- even deep down- that has intentions of growing a stronger connection with this person, get out of it. This is purely for your own good.
5. Don’t introduce them to your friends or family.
Introducing someone you’re sleeping with to your friends and family is a huge step and should only happen if you two are dating. For the millionth time, you are NOT dating your fuckbuddy, so you should not introduce them to any of your friends or family. Of course, if they come over and your roommate is sitting on the couch then that’s awkward if you don’t offer a simple introduction. But anything outside of that circumstance is off limits. You don’t want to bring them into any aspect of your life besides the bedroom.
6. Don’t send them anything you wouldn’t care about others seeing.
You might be confused. If my fuckbuddy is simply for sleeping with, shouldn’t I be able to send sexy texts and pictures? That seems like a logical thing to do? But we argue no. You are not close with this person, you’re not friends, and you don’t care about each other’s feelings or best interests. For these reasons, they have nothing stopping them from showing your sexts and sexy pictures to all their friends and maybe even more. Hopefully they have good morals but honestly you can never be too sure. And once you put something out there, it’s in cyberspace forever, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.
7. Don’t forget to use protection.
This should seem like a given, but always use protection. Like I mentioned earlier, you both are most likely playing the field and sleeping with other people besides each other. This clearly means there’s a huge possibility of getting an STD. For obvious reasons, you need to be as safe as possible so you don’t catch anything. And no one wants to get pregnant with their fuckbuddy, right? Right. No matter how in the moment you are, or how drunk you get, you have to use protection.
8. Don’t go on dates.
This should be obvious, but please for the love of god don’t try to go on a date with your fuckbuddy. Even if it is something as minimal as breakfast after morning sex, skip out. Dates are for couples who are exclusive or who have intentions about getting serious. Dates allow you to get more intimate, get to know each other, and build a deeper connection. Neither of you should have either of these intentions, so don’t go on dates– you are NOT dating.
