Typically, one or both parties catch feelings and then the whole thing falls apart. My most successful FWB, a cinematographer I fiend to live near whom I hooked up with Fwb or special friend for about two years, summed it up best in a text: Before getting into the nitty-gritty of what makes a FWB work, you should have a screening process for the kind of person you want to rope in.
Lightheartedness is crucial. Next, do a little introspection about what you want or need from this arrangement.
Ask your pound pal to do the same, then discuss. Just as in a relationship you have Fwb or special friend actively maintain intimacy, in a FWB-ship you have to keep working to maintain boundaries. Having a hot person handy for company parties and various happy hours is hella tempting, but resist.
Introducing this person—as cool as they may actually be—to various other folks in your regular orbit crosses a line. Get good news?
Text your best dude or dad or therapist or dog walker. Take it to Twitter.
That breeds a different kind of intimacywhich breeds new expectations. It may feel kind and right to bring along soup or something, spedial you simply cannot.
The key is to end things before they stop being fun, which can be especially tough to gauge when you're getting, like, orgasms. Then, for both your sakes: Condoms, always.
But not for that reason. No plus-1s.

See ya. Set a time limit—and stick to it.
