Not gonna do it

The "Friends With Benefits" meme: I won't be doing that. So you know. Even doing it with screened comments makes it feel too public to me. I also think/feel/believe that it's a bad idea for me to do the Friends With Benefits thing in reality. I like to think I'm good at friendships, and I worry about complicating them. Friendship building to more-than-friendship, great, that happens a lot to a lot of people. But I know that inclinations and circumstances often mean I can't reciprocate (e.g. I'm a monogamous person with a lot of poly friends; plus a lot of my online friends are way the hell over in other parts of the country I don't get to too often). I'd want to be able to reciprocate. Not in these circumstances.

So. The "Friends With Benefits" meme: I won't be doing that.
