Zodiac Signs Who Just Want Friends With Benefits Vs. The Ones Who Need A Committed Relationship, According To Astrology

Let's face it, some people just don't want to be in relationships. Can we blame them? Relationships are hard work and they are expensive and have a lot of expectations. You have to get gifts for every occasion and holiday for one.

Your partner may have issues with the people you hang around and that might cause a rift in the relationship. Becoming friends with benefits has become a socially acceptable way to live. It has been depicted in the movie "Friends With Benefits" starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake and in the movie "No Strings Attached" with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher.

Let's also face the facts that having this type of relationship cut cost. You're not living together, you don't have to invest in gifts for each occasion or holiday and you don't have to go away to travel for fun or to see family.

It's convenient and it leaves wiggle room for the people involved.  What is the downfall of this type of relationship?, Well, as it went down in the two movies, the character eventually fell in love.

That could happen, you could actually end up liking each other. If that happens, what do you do and where do you take it from there, that is the question.  Many people say that it is still taboo, but that's for you to decide. 

I personally have never experienced this in my life, but some of my friends have. Some of the relationships survived and some didn't. I personally think people should do what makes them happy.
