Now, every time you come over, you experience a wave of nausea, or you start to take certain actions that used to mean nothing to you more seriously. Carrots mean nourishment, and if he or she wants to nourish you, maybe he or she also has feelings for you? Once you admit your feelings to your FWB, it could go one of two ways.
Ideally, of course, your FWB returns your feelings, and both of you want to take the arrangement to the next level.
You might be lucky enough to have your feelings reciprocated, but you're more likely going to get your feelings hurt.
Maybe your last relationship was a disaster and this arrangement was only supposed to be a short-term thing.You two may still meet every once in a while in order to relieve some sexual frustration, but once you admit your feelings and get rejected, nothing is quite the same.The fun you used to have with each other is replaced by a general awkwardness created by the vacuum of his or her unreciprocated feelings for you.Depending on the type of person you are, this could lead to a lot of trouble.You're lingering at your FWB's house for longer and longer and now, the two of you have extended activities from purely hooking up to actually talking and hanging out.This is the worst stage because there aren't any real guidelines to help you when your FWB relationship inevitably dissolves.How do you cope with the ending of a relationship that wasn't even really a relationship?Your arrangement ends, either with an ultimatum or with both parties silently agreeing to never speak to one another again.Falling in love with someone who doesn't return your feelings is messy when you factor sex into the equation.It brings up feelings that are reminiscent of a relationship.After all, you two are sharing a lot more than spit, and at this point, you're doing so on a regular basis.
