Totally a myth. People, unless they're sociopaths, generally get attached to people who are any type of consistent presence in their lives.

The FWB concept is a farce. It's also the hallmark of the very young/immature and the emotionally immature. Well-adjusted grownups have real relationships, they don't pick and choose certain parts of relationships. The majority of people trying to pull of the supposed "no strings" thing (which doesn't exist) are the emotionally stunted or damaged.
Wow, you are very opinionated.

I agree with the bolded part. I don't know what you are talking in regards to your first paragraph.

If you are twice divorced maybe you've learned you are "relationship" "challenged" , not everybody can be good at everything.

LOL. This may be true, but remember the divorce rate in the US is what, 50% so Im definately not alone.

I have learned that
relationships indeed are complicated and take work, compromise and sacrifice.
It takes two people to make a relationship work
and men generally suck the life right out of ya
