Here are a few signs that your man wants to just be friends with benefits with you.
1. There is only really one thing he likes talking to you about.
Conversations are important in any relationship. If you manage to find a pattern with regards to the kinds of topics he mostly brings up during your discussions, then you can get a good idea of what kind of man he is and what he wants out of a relationship. If he always tends to navigate towards areas of discussion that concern physical intimacy and sexual practices, then you can tell that he’s just testing the waters with you. He wants to know how far you would be willing to take it with him on a physical level. If he talks about sex more than he does about his feelings for you, then he doesn’t really want to be in a relationship. He just wants a night in the bedroom with you.
2. He tells you that he’s not a relationship kind of guy.
If he tells you right off the bat that he’s not a relationship kind of guy, then you shouldn’t really expect much out of him. However, if he still makes an effort to always be spending time with you, then that means he still wants something out of you. What does he want exactly? Well, we all know the answer to that question. He wants a fun night in the sack with you… Maybe even multiple times. He just wanted to make it clear from the start that emotions don’t play a role in the dynamics of your relationship
3. He doesn’t open himself up to you on a personal level.
If a man truly wanted to establish an emotional relationship with you, then he would have little problem with opening himself up to you. In fact, he would want to get personal with you if he were really interested in having a real relationship with you. If he doesn’t want to start connecting with you on a more emotional level, then that means the only kind of relationship he wants with you is the physical one. He doesn’t want to get tangled up in all the chaos of emotions, but he is definitely interested in all the joys of sexual escapades with you.
4. He doesn’t really take you out in public.
He thinks that if he takes you out on real dates in public, then that would somewhat solidify your status as a legitimate couple. The problem with that is that he really doesn’t see you as a real couple at all. He sees you more as a friend with benefits. And so he doesn’t want to add anything to what you already have together. Any interaction between the both of you should be kept in the bedroom. He only looks to get intimate with you in manners that are inappropriate when done in public.
