Fwb's don't have to be that way, by any stretch. Maybe if you develop the friends part before the benefits part next time?
Is it really so impossible to find this guy's contact info? He doesn't have a facebook page or anything like that where you could message him if you really want to say goodbye?
I'm still really curious about your reasons for not asking for what you wanted. Did anything at all that I suggested above sound likely?
