As part of a friends with benefits couple you have no right to be jealous, but it can still be really hard.
In every relationship you will have feelings. You might want to protect your substitute girl/boyfriend to the point where it might seem that you are jealous. But let’s break it down.
Reasons to be jealous
- He or she is with someone else
- He or she gives a certain look to someone else
- You hear stories with details you might not want to hear
- Certain people give comments about your substitute boy/girlfriend on social media
Grass is always greener
The grass always seems greener on the other side and it is all a matter of perspective. Because the person he or she is engaging with might be damn jealous of you.
Imagine if you’d hear that the person you are crushing on admits to have a fuck buddy. You might think that he or she is the luckiest guy/girl in the world.
But there are reasons why you are chosen to be the no strings attached person and you will be the person who people will be jealous about, because everyone would love to have a person to booty call upon.
Stay positive and dont think the other person will be in your way. If your friend with benefits does get a relationship with the person then so be it. Be happy for them and stay friends. Because in the end that is what should always stay.
