Being friends with benefits means connecting with someone emotionally and sexually without being in a committed relationship. 

To be friends with benefits, everyone involved has to be on the same page about what’s happening. That means both people should feel good about the arrangement. This kind of relationship can take work, so checking in with yourself and your friend from time to time to see how you’re feeling about things can help you maintain healthy friendships and boundaries.
