3. The Married Guy

The married guy is unavailable so it'll be harder for you to get attached, right? Wrong. A lot of us tend to want what we can't have and you might even convince yourself that you want this guy for the sole purpose that he's unavailable. I know how screwed up that sounds but it's the truth.

There's also a third party in the picture who your actions could affect. When it's just you and your friend making a mutually beneficial agreement, no outside person stands the chance of getting hurt. We want all the good karma we can muster! Furthermore, a man who is in a shaky marriage might be looking for someone to latch on as his savior for his failing relationship.

Don't forget about the boyfriend's best friend. My friend did that and it didn't end well.

Why would you have a 'friends with benefits' relationship? That's the sluttiest thing I've ever heard. You have to have no respect for yourself for that kind of relationship.
