A friend with benefits (FWB) is someone you agree to have only a physical relationship with, and someone you definitely don’t plan to fall in love with. Yes, you might hang out from time to time, but it’s nothing like a romantic relationship.
Many people make such arrangements with someone simply because they think they only want a weekly hook-up with a guy they find attractive. They believe they’re strong enough to control their feelings, but sometimes the feelings get too strong and one person ends up getting hurt.
If you’ve started wishing for something more than only a physical relationship with your FWB, then you’ll need to hear my advice. There are 11 ways to make him fall in love with you and I’m about to share them with you. I hope you’re ready because this might change your life.
11 best ways to make your FWB fall in love with you
I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer, but I just want to give you a little piece of advice before we start. Every guy is different and you’ve already spent some time with him, which means you know him pretty well.
If some of these ways don’t look like they can be applied to him, just skip them and follow the next one. Although I’ve prepared 11 for you, you don’t need to focus on all of them at the same time.
1) Be completely sure that you want it
Before you even start your quest to make your friends with benefits fall in love with you, you need to make sure you definitely want to do that.
Take a few days for yourself and think about your feelings. Try not to talk to him and see whether you’d miss him or not. Listen to your heart and you’ll know what to do next.
2) Be his good friend
Romantic relationships can’t work if the partners aren’t best friends. Of course, you don’t have to be BFFs at the beginning, but you definitely need to be pretty good friends.
You need to show him that you care about him, that you’re there to help him, and that you will be there no matter how hard it gets. He needs to know that he can trust you and that you don’t only call him when you want to hook up.
3) Ignore him sometimes
However, if you’re looking to make your FWB fall in love with you, you’ll need to make him miss you a bit. Missing someone shows us who the people we really like to be around are.
If you choose to ignore him for a few hours or days (depending on your current relationship), you’ll definitely make him notice you’re not there. And he’ll spend some time wondering where you’re at and who you’re with.
4) Be mysterious
Even though I told you to be his good friend, you still need to make yourself seem mysterious. That way, he’ll be interested to hear you talk about yourself. He’ll want to know your past, your favorite books, movies, and the dreams you have.
Gradually reveal bits of information about yourself, but always leave him wanting more. That’s how you’ll make him think about you and all the things he’s yet to find out.
5) Compliment him
Guys can be even more insecure than women. And most won’t make a move unless they know they stand at least a chance at making you interested in them.
So to show him you’re fine with him making a move, I advise you to compliment him. Don’t overdo it, but occasionally remind him that you really like his beard or his smile.
6) Be confident
You know how they say, “Confidence is the key.” Well, trust me, it really is very important. If he sees you’re happy in your own body and mind, he’ll want to find out what’s so special about you.
If you show him that you can live without him, that you’re a strong independent woman, it will make him want you even more. Men fall for confident women; that’s a fact. So make him realize your worth by loving yourself the way you want someone else to love you.
7) Know his interests
This one shouldn’t be very challenging for you. You’ve already spent some time with him to know what his interests are. Now there’s just one more thing to do.
Use that knowledge to impress him. Don’t lie about the things that you love! But there must be something both of you enjoy doing. Suggest that activity and show him that you’ve been paying attention to him.
8) Cuddle more
If you want to make your FWB fall in love with you, then always try to make your cuddles last that little bit longer. That’s a moment couples share, but friends with benefits don’t do it that often.
Make him realize that he should be lucky to have the opportunity to hold such a girl in his arms. Don’t be afraid to be cute about it either. Hug him when he tries to leave the bed and ask him for a few more minutes.
9) Show him other sides of yourself
One of the best ways to achieve your goal is to show him yourself in another light. The two of you probably mostly see each other at his place.
But do something different. Tell him that you need to volunteer and you’ll be free when you finish with that. Then ask him to join you at the volunteering center so you can go somewhere together afterward. Or choose any other activity that you enjoy, like going to the gym, to the cinema, or on a small road trip.
10) Make him laugh
People who have the power to make you laugh are the ones who can make you happy when you’re at your lowest.
If you show him how fun you are and how he can laugh 24/7 when he’s next to you, you’ll definitely make him wish to spend more time next to you.
11) Don’t try too hard
And the last thing I want to advise you if you want to make your FWB fall in love with you is to be careful not to try too hard.
It’s very obvious when someone acts desperately and it definitely doesn’t look attractive. So give him a bit more attention than you usually do, but still don’t show him you’re crazy about him.
And I hope you’re ready to start a relationship. Why? Because I’m sure a beautiful girl like you who has the knowledge of these 11 tips will definitely make her FWB fall in love with her.
Be brave and get to work! I’m sure you’ll get him. Remember, you’re already halfway there! Good luck.
