2. Keep seeing other people.
Learned from: No Strings Attached (2011)
Complex says: Your friend-with-benefits shouldn't care that you see other people, nor know the dirty details. It's all about keeping yourself open to the possibility of finding someone while still getting something on the side.
Seeing other people is a great way to ensure that you don't get attached. Yeah, it's awkward for Aston Kutcher in No Strings Attached, but "befriending with benefits" is about sexual chemistry; dating is for finding things in common and seeing if you can deal with her for the long haul. If a serious date doesn't work out, you'll always always have the comfort of a late night meet-up with your bed buddy.
