Pick someone who won't get too
Steps Edit Method One of Three: Picking Someone Edit With someone who is available. Friend means "available" in all senses of the word friend single being the most obvious definition. The person should not only be single, but he or with shouldn't be recovering from the end of a devastating break-up, dealing with the loss of a loved one, or so busy studying that he or she practically lives benefits the library.
This person should be feeling fun, emotionally stable, and up for anything - especially hooking up with you. Pick someone who won't get too attached. Friends with benefits relationships often end because one person starts falling for the other.
So, unless you want to date the person, or you don't care if the person gets really hurt, you should avoid someone who will get attached. How do you know who will get too attached find who benefits.
Well, you can't figure this out with 100 certainty, but there are a few clues that the person may get too attached: If you've heard this person described as "clingy," whether it's by friends or past significant find, then you may have a problem.
- You should try to find someone who you know has had some experience hooking up - even better if you've heard he or she is great in bed.
- If you pick someone you might date, then it's more likely that you'd end up falling for that person. You should have some natural chemistry with this person.
- Don't see the person more than two or three times a week. Keep doing your own thing.

Keep doing your own thing. The joy of a friends with benefits relationship is that you can still have enough time to pursue your own goals, whether it's grad school, your love for painting, or just all of the fun times you have hanging out with your friends.
You can keep hooking up with your friend while having plenty of time to do all of the things you love during the day.
Don't go clothes shopping together, and don't bring your "friend" as a date to a wedding or a party.
Pick someone outside your social or work circle. Don't have a friends with benefits relationship with one of the members of the group of friends you've known since you were five, or it'll lead to some serious awkwardness when the relationship ends.
Typical friends with benefits relationships only last a few months, so don't pick someone you know you'll have to see all the time.
