Friends with benefits or more???
I like u... a lot
U say u like me...how much??
Is it enough that we talk about everything and nothing, from your raunchy younger years to my adventurous yesteryear...
I'm shy cos I've been hurt and made to lose confidence in my body, yet u call me sexy...
I could kiss u for days and bore u to death at the same time but still u're here...
I want more, more than you're willing to give me or so I think
We've known each other long enough and I understand your hesitation, I'm unpredictable and unsure but u can change that
U like us the way we are, but darling I want more, to be able to publicly call u mine and not fear that you'll deny.
I like u, u like me...more
This was written by one of our readers whom I know simply as Baby Lawyer, so I presume she is younger, maybe early 20s. All I have to say is this; you are on the right track. Tell him what you want and define what you have.
Don't sell yourself short and settle for crumbs.
Neither should you let fear of rejection stop you from demanding for more. If your feelings for him are more than mere friends (with benefits) and you feel that you deserve more from him than just those benefits then make it known.
There's no guarantee how things will turn out but at least you'll know where you stand and years later you won't find yourself asking 'What if?'
And best case scenario; if he's right for you and has genuine feelings then it's almost certain that he will give you MORE.
