Because let’s be honest, most college students and young 20-somethings don’t want the burden of a relationship, they just want the sex.I’d say that the most common relationship trends today are friends with benefits and fuck buddies.
It’s 2015, and it’s become increasingly harder to have an old fashioned, plain old, clear cut relationship.
Between booty calls, friends with benefits, and fuck buddies, there is no such thing as clarity with the opposite sex anymore.
Despite having seen them naked, do you find yourself perplexed as to what to call this person?
Like a store-bought potato, this person is completely unremarkable in every way -- except for his or her role as filler of that sexual void (which is hopefully where the potato similarities end).
Wayne State University and Michigan State University conducted a similar survey and sixty-six percent of the undergraduates in this study said they had also been in a casual relationship. Barnes: The psychology of love journal, has come up with two main types of lovers for college aged young adults.
About half of this sixty-six percent said they were currently in such a relationship. They are "Eros" lovers who are passionate lovers and "Ludas" or "Ludic" lovers, which are game-playing lovers.
A WELP is not a boyfriend or girlfriend, because you simply don’t want to date them.
You’re certainly not talking about anything interesting with someone who’s in your life for the sole purpose of an orgasm and it’s hard to believe that a meaningful connection can grow from a few lackluster pumps and groans over the course of a few months.
Thankfully we’re here today to clear up the distinct differences between friends with benefits and fuck buddies one and for all. Friends with benefits obviously means you were friends first, right? Friends with benefits usually begins when two friends, close or not, either have a random, drunk hookup or just start a mutual flirtation that builds into hooking up.
