And if he doesn’t, it is a crystal clear communication that he didn’t want a relationship with you in the first place.
If you want a relationship, don’t come to him with your hands out wanting.
When you enter into a FWB relationship, you should openly and honestly discuss and agree upon the nature of your connection right from the start.
In other words, in order to avoid confusion, hurt feelings and misread signals, you should be totally forthright and in complete accord with each other about the nature of your FWB relationship.
I told him that I didn’t want to be just a “booty call” and he said he’s not like that, but he won’t make it more.
The way out of this would be to simply treat the relationship as it actually is now instead of acting as if it’s more. But there is no reason he would do anything different than he has been doing since what he’s been doing so far has worked well. Look to your life to fill you up, make you happy, and make you fulfilled. but when we’re in the situation ourselves, somehow we forget what it looks like from the outside.
He told her so they are no longer friends due to her lack of trust in him, but now several months later he and I have been getting together almost every night.

And in addition to protecting your physical health, it’s important that you protect your emotional health by understanding that your FWB relationship can end at any time and for any reason. And while you may enjoy hooking up and being intimate, these types of relationships can only be successful if you’re both completely content with the arrangement.
For instance, if your FWB relationship makes you happy in the moment but then later fills you with regret and disappointment, it’s not the right choice for you.
