Are there men out there that start to create feelings with friends with benifits? I'm not in a situation like that but, I was wondering if that ever happens. From what I've read, it's always said that the woman is the one that feels, creates a bond more often and the men don't care at all. Stero type or more of the truth? What do you think? And, why?

Yes there are men who develop real feelings from friends-with-benefits situations. I know a couple of relationships that started out this way (neither one lasted but that may be beside the point). They're not in the majority, but it does happen, just as there are women who do not develop feelings from FWB. Stereotypes often have a basis in truth, but there are always exceptions. I never like to say "never"! But we do caution women against starting FWB situations because they are playing the odds by thinking they won't get attached. Usually, the woman is the one to get too involved.

It depends on the people involved. FWB is not devoid of feelings but the compartmentalization is there. The rule to follow is do not let your FWB be you only social outlet! Either party may jump the bounds of a FWB and want to be BF/GF that is up to them and the boundaries they have set.
