They love him, he’s funny — This Non-BF type is referring to being in a polyamorous relationship, in which the person who you are dating primarily is your primary. We may as well put him on this list though, because you know yourself you do all of the things that couples do with this person, and it wouldn’t be fair not to acknowledge that.
I’m throwing this one in here because it still fits in the non-exclusive Non-BF terms. are also your boyfriends, so it gets a little tricky. Plus: 18 Guys You Should Never Date You dated this guy sort of seriously. You may have even called him your boyfriend at some point.
Plus: Breaking: Men And Women Can’t Be Friends, Says Science In my experience, these are the 7 types of Non-BFs I’ve established: You like this guy. He tells you that he wouldn’t be comfortable dating you if you were seeing other people. You’re attracted to each other, but no feelings are involved. You date other people, he does the same, and sometimes you even talk about it.In a wave of feeling agreeable, you say ‘ok, sure’. He’s not looking for a girlfriend, so essentially he’s not looking to date other people and therefore doesn’t have to change anything in his dating behavior. It’s ok, we all make dumb choices every once and again. He’s your Non-BF because you see him more than anyone, and know that even though there will be others in the dating game, at the end of the day, he’s the one you’re going home with (more often than not.) But it doesn’t matter, because nothing will come of the No Strings Attached relationship, and you both know this going in.You are now in a limbo where you aren’t his girlfriend but agreed to exclusivity and have changed YOUR dating behavior extremely. But essentially, in this case, this boy is your Non-BF. This can be fun and amazing, but tricky and dangerous, too.Since I was introduced to the term by an old roommate, I’ve called every guy I’ve dated for more than a few dates, my “Non Boyfriend” (Non-BF), partially because I just didn’t know whether it would be ok for me to call them my boyfriend, and also because I am a commitment-phobe and never know whether or not I actually WANT to call someone my boyfriend, even if they are. Because of this, in your dating life span you can have very few BFs and many Non-BFs (helping you keep your “BF number down” much like the recyclables in the “sea” help keep your “sxy number” down).You don’t have to let the world know what type of Non-BF your current Non-BF is.
