Dating : Should I shoot my shot for a FWB?
Recently I got out of a really abusive and long term relationship(5 years). I (22F) went on vacation with my family and met this guy(29M) while he was out with his friends. I ended up giving him my number and he text me the next morning. We’ve been talking pretty much everyday since. Most times I do have to initiate the conversation but he always texts me back always stays in the conversation. I went out with him last week for drinks.
Me living near a big city and him living in the city, I dropped my car off at his place and he paid for an Uber for us to go out. He paid for everything which is something I never got in any of my previous relationships. He kept offering me his jacket, asking if I was okay/having fun, and opening doors for me. (Leads to my confusion) We stayed out late came home and ended up watching a movie in his room and ended up having sex.
We cuddled all night until I got a phone call and had to leave he walked me outside told me he had fun last night and I left. We ended up texting after that and we both agreed that we get better sleep if your sleeping with next to someone ( I sleep very light and can’t sleep throughout the night because I feel like I hear everything). He text me last night and asked if I was game to come over watch some movies and sleep over stating that he hasn’t slept good since the last time I came over. I went over last night and we hung out.
When I asked him why he was single, he told me that there’s a lot of self problems that he wants to work on and that he doesn’t feel like he can give his very best at the moment for a woman in his life. He was really up front about wanting to better himself and that he’s had problems in the past with relationships because of his own ego/pride. For the some of the same reasons I don’t want to be in a relationship( need my own time to heal) however I don’t want to lose him. Would I be crazy to ask for a FWB type thing? Even though in a way I feel like I am a booty call, he seems more into it than just casual sex.
