Are you dating or friends with benefits
The cardinal rule of a friends with benefit relationship is not to let emotions get in the way.
But what looks easy on paper is often much more difficult to follow in real life.
Thus now when your ‘friend’ posts something to your facebook wall, you probably don’t fly into a panic and delete it immediately before anyone sees.
Also you don’t mind being clicked with your ‘friend’ and it being available for the whole world to view – indeed you may even feel a certain pride that your relationship is now out in the open and does not exist solely behind closed bedroom doors.
Sex is no longer the most important thing You go over to hook up with your ‘friend’ but end up watching TV and eating pizza together.
Or perhaps he/she massages your back for you when you go over after a stressful day at work.
When two people are in love, they wish to keep in touch the whole day – through phone calls or text messages - even though they may be living under the same roof.
You cuddle or put yourselves in a spooning position.
All these are behaviors are ways of reinforcing emotional attachment through physical gestures and could signal red flags in your friends with benefits relationship.
Sharing mutual interests is one of strongest bonding factors in real couples and if you are doing the same with your ‘friend’, it is likely you are discovering the pleasures of a real relationship.
You find other people unsuitable Yet another sure-shot sign of a growing relationship is when you begin to lose interest in other potential partners.
