Friends with … regrets?

Filed under: Celebrities,pop culture,Psychology — posted by Breakup Girl @ 11:56 am

Two new movies starring four very attractive people pose the questions: (1) Can “friends with benefits” arrangements work? and (2) Natalie Portman?! On (1) I’m leaning no, if only on the grounds that I would definitely fall for Justin Timberlake.

But Tracy Clark-Flory of Salon.com gives the matter deeper consideration. But her bottom line is basically this: “When you talk to people who have been there and done that — and even those who are continuing to do that — the response is overwhelmingly negative. As my own former ‘friend with benefits’ put it, ‘I’ve been in so many of these situations and, basically, they work until they don’t.'”

Read the rest (Tracy does a bunch of reporting and covers a lot of thoughtful ground) and let us know what you think: Does FWB ever benefit anyone? Under what particular circumstances? Share away, ’cause don’t worry; we won’t expect anything more from you than a good time. 😉


  1. Usually I don’t learn post on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very compelled me to try and do it! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, very nice post.

  7. Listening to. Appropriate, and such a amazing project tribute to Fraser. I know you-all created it a great few years before, but I am grateful today! You delivered my focus on it while chatting with Sproule and myself a couple of years before. It was a charming visit, and you were hardly stingy with advice and data! I’m understanding Hello horo’s and Braighe Loch Iall na horo eile! Cheers!
