Is it odd for friends with benefits to talk about what how they like their relationships?

Initially this guy asked me to hangout with him. But I didn’t instead I asked him if he wanted to be friends with benefits. He said yes because he’s always been into me. I told him I like to have space in regards to relationships. And that I knew that was probably strange and he said it’s not because he’s actually the same way.


It's not odd. It's even a really good idea to talk about what you do and don't like in terms of a relationship. It doesn't matter if this is a friends with benefits relationship or a romantic one. By talking about your boundaries the other person knows what to expect or not and that can help to prevent confusion. It also builds trust and that too is important in any type of relationship. So not weird at all and actually very healthy. More people should be doing that.
