FWB, FB, or Random Hookups?
What's the difference between a Fuck Buddy and a FWB? That's another question I've been pondering. IMHO, the difference is in the relationship. I fuck buddy is someone that I get together with just to fuck. Not that I've crossed that bridge yet, but you get the idea. There's no need to hang out with a fuck buddy unless you're gonna fuck, or suck, or whatever. You're not friends. But a Friend with Benefits is someone that you would hang out with, just to hang out. Sex doesn't always have to be the primary goal.
Now, I know myself. At least I like to think I do. I know that I am more apt to look for a friend than a fuck buddy. But to be honest, there's an emotional aspect to a FWB of which I think I'd steer clear. Last thing I need, at this stage of my journey, is to get too attached to someone.
The other guy, my second hookup, could easily become my FWB. When I went to his house, I really wasn't expecting a blowjob. I could see myself just hanging out with this guy, maybe even introducing him to my wife as a friend. Maybe that's why I haven't made any real effort to find time to meet, because I know that it will go nowhere good.
