I made the decision last night to keep Angela as a friend with occasional benefits. I thought about ending the benefits with her completely but I realized that I just wanted to see her less often. I found that even though I was upfront with her about not wanting a relationship, to which she agreed, she still wanted to see me every week. Now, my feeling is that if you’re friends with benefits and you’re seeing each other every week, then you’re practically in a relationship. I guess I wanted time to see my other friends and to keep meeting and dating other women and I felt pressed for time if I was seeing Angela every week. So I called her yesterday, we had a nice time catching up, and we made plans for Saturday – that’ll be 3 weeks since we last got together.
