Transition to Relationship from FWB

Published on May 9, 2010 by surfgirl

After some time of FWB, I'm sensing what I've been hoping for.... sincere caring and the possibility of a relationship. Are there ways to express how much this means without blowing the whole thing up? It's been years of mutual "fun" without commitment. I now think there is a change on his part. which I never pressed for, but I'm so wanting to see. How can I help make progress to get even closer? Thanks for your thoughts!


First of all, you got into this relationship as an FWB, you should not expect that it will ever change. Also, if you've been FWBs for years and it hasn't changed and he hasn't make a move to change it, that is probably a sign that he doesn't want to change it.

But if you want to be sure, you have to talk to him. You have to let him know that your feelings for him have grown and you'd love to date him. And if he turns that down, I think you need to be prepared to end the FWB. Because holding onto a guy through sex is just setting yourself up for heartbreak.

I appreciate the comment. Next time I see him, I'll say my feelings have grown and that I want more. If he hedges, I'll say we need to stop because believe me I'm already feeling heartbreak........
