I did not see the other thread before it was locked, but I would have added that just because a relationship is considered "Friends with Benefits" (as much as I hate that term) does not automatically mean that there is no love. It most certainly is not the same as NSA sex. For me, the friendship part of FWB is hugely important - and I sure as hell can love my friends. It may not be the same as what we call romantic love, but it is love. I think it is sad that most people really think of a FWB as just another name for Fuck Buddy. There are more than a few of us here who have loving relationships that are not partner-y and have more casual parameters but are full of love and loving, caring qualities, and are definitely not NSA or swinger-ish at all.
