What It’s Like To Be Friends With Benefits In College

You think that finding a boyfriend in college is going to be all

Because (naturally) boys will flock to you like

And then it will be nothing but

Right? Wrong. You haven’t found a boyfriend yet and you’re just like

Now you’re starting to worry and become depressed… Is there something wrong with you? Why don’t you have a boyfriend? 

Honestly…

You don’t want to become desperate like

Because desperate is never attractive…

You refuse to be that sl*t who hooks up with absolutely anyone available…

So you call home to vent to your Mom like

and Mom reassures you

 

Time to put your big girl pants on…

Maybe you’ve just got to put yourself out there more… 

You know, make yourself stand out of the pack…

Then you’re bound to be feeling better…

And sure enough, when you finally get a text from that cute boy it’s like 

And when he asks if you want to watch a movie in his room you’re all

Now you’re giggling to your roommate like…

You start hanging out and he’s all

…which makes you feel like

You’re going out more together and meeting up at the bar…

You’re even hanging out more at night

But, then randomly one day he’s all “I’m not looking for anything serious” and you’re like

He suggests that you two be friends with benefits … You’re just thinking

And even though you want to be like

You really don’t want to scare him away… so instead you smile and agreeingly knod along like

And now you’re engaging in some FWB action…

And then that inevitable day comes when you realize you actually have feelings for him and you’re just like… 

Your roomie can tell something’s up and she’s like

Even though you try to act like nothing’s wrong, she sees right through you…

*Embarassed*

You have no response other than

She just sits there thinking to herself

So FWB didn’t work out and maybe you’re feeling a little down in the dumps like

Irritable, upset, confused, and hopeless all at the same time…

Hey, at least it was a learning experience…
