I am a firm believer in the value of a solid fuck buddy.
From my learnings, here are the four primary elements needed to reign over fuck buddy-dom:. We went on a date. We still go on dates. The thing is, fundamentally, I think we both see an irreconcilable difference in the other that stops us from attempting entry into the bat shit insane world of an actual relationship.
This is the exact person that makes the perfect fuck buddy. This goes without saying. You must want to, and be prepared to, at any and all times, screw the fuck out of the other person.
Arbitrary time rules are you best friend in fuck buddy land. Sometimes my dude and I go 2 weeks without seeing each other, sometimes 3 months; not having an expectation that you will see the other person with any sort of regularity or schedule is intrinsically linked to your ability to keep your feelings in check.
