Jesse Owen, the lead researcher of the study, told he was surprised by the findings.
PS -- There is no such thing as a "FWB", you cannot be "friends" and have sex without one or the other getting attached or jealous.
If you want a sexual only situation hire a hooker or find someone to just have sex with from time to time, no rings, no strings, no attachments, no group dates with others, etc..
Conversations are on the same level as when you run into that guy from accounting on the elevator, small talk.
FWB: a friend with whom you have sex on occasion or regularly. You enjoy each other as people but do not want romance.

No one seems to use the term "lover" anymore and instead talk about FWBs. So feel free to answer how you define the following: FB (fock buddy) FWB (friend with benefit) Lover Mine: FB: someone you have sex with and nothing more.
Without hesitation, he explained: “With a friend with benefits, you would actually see yourself going out for coffee afterwards.” Is that enough nuance for you?
Enter the era of friends with benefits, the new form of dating.
You are truly friends and share a true friendship as a bond. Even if you weren't sleeping together you would still see each other. I am leaning toward an FWB with romance, but it isn't someone you would be seeing socially if you weren't shagging.
