If you crave physical intimacy why do you want to date a girl that lives hundreds of miles away?!
Because I'm stupid and no one around here will date me. Also, I'm gonna try to break the desperate need for physical intimacy.
You can't do that stupid stuff if the girl you want is in NC.
My point is, DON'T start off by asking the girl to be FWB. If she agrees, you're only good for sex until she finds someone she wants to date, then she will kick you to the curb. Transitions rarely happen where she just decides she wants to date you after you've used her for sex for months.
Plus, if you're FWB, you have no idea who else she's seeing when she isn't with you, and if you're a possessive Greek like me, it sucks.
I know, but I've only got a year and a half til graduation. Plus I may be getting my license soon and my friends can drive so if I cough up gas money I'll be okay. I won't do the fwb thing tho.
You really aren't mature enough to date anyone to be honest. It isn't all about sex, although that's part of it. Don't get into a relationship if that's all your after though. Just find a FWB and sleep with her whenever you want, but don't expect her to listen to your problems nor should she have to listen to yours.
But sex isn't everything. I like the cuddly mushy stupid stuff more than sex that's the point.
I'll believe that when you've had a long term relationship.
To add to what Duke said: You veer from one idea on a pedestal to another. Even the "cuddly mushy stupid stuff" seems like its on a pedestal. Trust me, dealing with someone else's problems is a mix of drudgery and hard work. You have to be mature and you have to be with the right person for it to work.
I've dealt with everyone's problems as well as my own for the majority of my life that I've been able to think somewhat cognitively, what would change?
