Definition: "Term used for sexual partners that regularly engage in sexual activities with each other, but do not share the usual emotional attachment of a standard boyfriend/girlfriend relationship (or boyfriend/boyfriend, or girlfriend/girlfriend, etc. etc.). Often used to describe two people who use each other solely for sexual gratification and nothing else. Usually this is a sexual relationship that still allows for each partner to seek sexual and emotional relationships with other people (hence, no attachments) but can rely on each other for a quickie or a booty call." Recently, I have gone on a couple of dates with a really friendly, genuine guy who I really like and find very attractive. The dates only consisted of going to a few bars and having a few drinks and having a laugh only amoungst the two of us, he even had the curtousy of driving me home after the second date. Then a few nights after the second date, he texted me saying he had discovered that a serious relationship wasn't what he wanted and didn't want to hurt me. A few texts later I got it out of him that what he actually wants, is the relationship of which that I later defined as a 'fuck buddy'. I still fancied him and since I'm young and free I decided to just go along with it. We havn't met up again yet although we are planning to soon, to have a bit of 'fun' together. It's going to be so strange seeing him again as it will be with a totally different light compared to the sweet, charming and innocent seeming guy I went on a couple of dates with. It kind of turns me on to think that we will be acting a bit more openly sexual on our next encounter! What are your views on such a relationship? Would you ever consider knowing anyone for this function soley for personal fun or would you feel used/abused in such a position? Do you have a fuck buddy yourself?
