The Dos & Don’ts

CLEO (Malaysia) - - HOT READS! -

DON’T LET YOUR GUARD DOWN TOO FAST

Re­mem­ber that you’re only look­ing for a tem­po­rary so­lu­tion to sat­isfy your needs. Keep in mind too that if he’s hav­ing a FWB re­la­tion­ship with you now, he’s prob­a­bly done it be­fore with some­one else. Like any re­la­tion­ship, be wary and don’t trust too fast. If he can’t give you peace of mind, he’s def­i­nitely not go­ing to be able to give you any ex­plo­sions in the bed­room.

DO BE UP­FRONT

Don’t be un­will­ing to state the bound­aries just be­cause you don’t want to seem bossy. Is it ex­clu­sive? Can you date other peo­ple but not sleep with any­one else? Set­ting the rules will pre­vent the two of you from get­ting hurt or fling­ing ac­cu­sa­tions.

DON’T LET YOUR FRIENDS HANG OUT WITH YOUR FWB

Un­less you want to start de­vel­op­ing feel­ings, keep him away from your friends to avoid hear­ing, “you guys are so cute to­gether!”

DO AVOID SO­CIAL ME­DIA

See­ing what he’s up to when he’s not with you is not a good way to keep your jeal­ousy un­der check. Stop be­ing a Face­book stalker for your san­ity sake.

DON’T THINK IT’S MORE THAN IT IS

The black and white of a FWB ar­range­ment is sim­ply this: You’re a friend who some­times does things a girl­friend would do be­hind closed doors. Noth­ing more, noth­ing less. So don’t se­cretly hope for more.
