Once that happens, expectations are created and the chances of someone getting hurt are greatly increased.
5. Know when to stop: It’s always hard to walk away from someone you love. But if you start falling for your friend, you may need to do just that. Before you leave, ask if the other person feels the same way. If they don’t, walk away from both the FWB and the friendship as a whole. If you want to remain friends in the long run, just walk far enough away to get over the feelings of hurt and rejection. When you’re ready, you can gradually pick up your friendship where it left off before the FWB.
