The three of us have discussed it and we tend to agree with the definition of it as follows (found on Wikipedia):
...long-term female lover and companion who is not married to her partner; the term is used especially when her partner is married. The relationship generally is stable and at least semi-permanent; however, the couple does not live together openly. Also the relationship is usually, but not always, secret...
We have differing opinions, however, on what the term FWB means to each of us. JP and J both have positive definitions while I have had nothing but negative experiences with the use of that term - so we don't use that phrase to describe our relationship.
As long as your (and others) are ok with the terms being used, that's all that matters..
