speaks for a lot of people when she asks Reddit, "Why is it always about sex? "The 26-year-old describes meeting guy after guy who just wants casual sex, even when they seem super compatible on an emotional level—and even when they say they're looking for more than a hookup. I found that a local zoo facility had a volunteer position and I love animals, so I applied and got accepted. When I had a new hobby in my life, it was time for me to work on myself and find my own independent happiness. This is why I consciously do not engage in anything sexual for a while.
Hanging out should be mutual and it shouldn’t rely on one or the other.
Hooking up with a friend should be freeing and empowering, not filled with anxiety.
If hooking up at random isn’t for you, then that’s totally fine!
Feeling a pang of jealousy, anxiety, or stress in regards to your FWB?
It’s hard to remember that this situation isn’t based on commitment.
