Friends With Benefits

Meaning Friends that often get intimate
3.3 (3 Votes)

Friends with benefits are friends that have a booty call arrangement without the feels. It is also the title of the 2011 movie starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.

People that become friends with benefits are usually afraid of being alone at night and/or don't want to commit to a more meaningful relationship. The arrangement usually doesn't last too long because either one person develops feelings for the other person and it gets messy or one person enters an actual dating relationship with another person.

"TBH, I feel like you have to be a really shallow person to be friends with benefits."
