Friends with benefits is a term that has become increasingly more popular recently especially among teenagers and college students. Urban Dictionary defines the term friends with benefits like this:
“Two friends who have a sexual realtionship without being emotionally involved. Typically two good friends who have casual sex without a monogomous relationship or any kind of commitment.”
You probably know people at your school that are friends with benefits. I believe these relationships are so popular because they fill a need that lots of people want: being friends with someone that you really trust, and also having sex with that person.
I believe that God was the one who created REAL friends with benefits. Yes, you read that right. God was the one who created REAL friends with benefits. Basically, friends with benefits is simply having sex with a close friend. I believe that is why God created marriage. Marriage allows for sex with your closest friend. In fact, REAL friends with benefits(Marriage) is way better than anything that you can find in the relationships at your school. REAL friends with benefits is great because it gives you fulfillment that you can never find in a dating relationship. REAL friends with benefits is something that God created for you to enjoy, in marriage.
I encourage you to not allow yourself to settle for anything less than God’s best when it comes to dating relationships. Sometimes that might mean you may have to wait until God brings that right person into your life. The great news is, God’s best is worth the wait. God can bring a relationship into your life that will be more than you could ever imagine.
REAL friends with benefits is something that will last a lifetime. REAL friends with benefits will bring you so much more fulfillment than many of the shallow relationships you’ll find at your school. So, stay strong and wait until you’re married to enjoy the benefits that God created in a REAL friends with benefits relationship, which is marriage.
