"Can I trust you not to love me?" //^\\ I managed to convince him to only be friends with benefits and I trusted him enough to not love me like that , but I had to fall for him. And he had to fall for me. Something more than just a story regarding friends with benefits. Trying to get an ex-friend with benefits back is not easy. Especially when you become fake friends with benefits with someone else just to get that ex-friends with benefits back.
