I learnt a new meaning to boy-girl relationship yesterday night. It got me excited. kekeke.....
I received a visit from my single girlfriend W, who is in her late 30s and has her own successful business. Conversation inevitably came to the subject of relationships. And she let out that she is still dating occasionally but not seeing anyone serious. She did shock me with this FWB thingy.
Friends with Benefits (FWB) or F*** Buddies (FB). It means "Two friends who have a sexual relationship without being emotionally involved. Two good friends who have casual sex without a monogamous relationship or any kind of commitment".
This is definitely going to cause a moral issue debate in our conservative Asian society. I'm not one to judge my friends on their lifestyles. They would tell me things they do in their private life and I offer my views if I'm asked, but I don't criticise.
It seems this FWB relationships are very common today, especially among the young. But what happens when a lonely 30something girl finds herself in one. A good thing?
W has 2 male friends whom she likes but wouldn't consider marrying them. These 2 guys are busy working professionals. They have no time for serious relationships. They meet for meals and have hot, sizzling sex, (Wah! The details really make me blush.) whenever they don't have to travel abroad for business. This is mainly a relationship based on sex, no strings attached. Either party is free to terminate it.
W is pretty and capable and has no lack of suitors despite her age. But she is not ready to settle down and prefers such an arrangement. A shrewd businesswoman woman who lives in a luxurious condo, drives the latest Beemer and goes for holidays in exotic destinations. I wonder how many more such single ladies like her are out there.
No never-ending household chores to do. No need to pick after someone. No need to yell at kids or worry about university fee hikes. Tempting.
I want a divorce!
