Probably half of my relationships started off as just friends with benefits. Every time one of these casual relationships would begin, I would swear: "This time, no feelings!" Fast forward a few weeks or months, and it had either ended because someone wanted more, or it had turned into a relationship. While this definitely can work out, most of the time, it was a casual thing to begin with for a reason. So, knowing what to do if your friend with benefits falls for you is actually a really important part of being in a casual situation like this. That’s because, as Brenda Della Casa, career and relationship coach and author of "Cinderella Was A Liar" tells Elite Daily, a FWB situation leading one or both people to start feeling more for their "friend" happens all the time.
"Regardless of how committed two people are to the FWB rules, there are very few times when sex stays just sex for both people involved in these situations. Whether out of curiosity, loneliness, confusion or sincere desire, it's likely that, eventually, one of the parties will find themselves wanting more," says Della Casa. So, what should you do if your casual horizontal-party buddy seems like they're falling for you? Here's how the experts say to handle this all-too-common dilemma.
