Platonic Relationships

The problem that I have with the concept of platonic relationships is that relationships are defined by the individual, not by the couple.

Platonic Relationships

Here’s a fun video about why men and women can’t be “just friends”:

Granted.. It’s easy to skew a video like this by asking 100 gals and 100 guys if they believe men and women can be “just friends” and then only airing the responses from the gals that say “Yes” and the guys that say “No”.

Regardless, I think the video points out something interesting about so-called “Platonic Relationships”. Continue reading “Platonic Relationships”

Girls Don’t Have Friends That Are Guys

FWB (Friends With Benefits)

The other night, I had a fascinating conversation about what “Friends With Benefits” (FWB) means.

FWB is an umbrella term that covers more than one situation.

The “Benefits” part is the same, regardless… Sex, Hooking Up, Physical Intimacy, whatever you like to call it.

The “Friends” part is what’s really in question. Continue reading “FWB (Friends With Benefits)”
