Maybe she brought more to the table 🤷🏼‍♀️

There's no such thing as dumped from a fwb. FWB doesn't mean you're in a relationship...


Just because it's not a monogamous romantic relationship doesn't mean it's not a relationship. You can get dumped by your fwb for another fwb or for a relationship. You can get dumped by a platonic friend. And even worse with fwb, a lot of the time contact has to completely end once they are in a romantic relationship because what SO would be comfortable with their partner hanging out with someone they used to have sex with regularly. You know the day will come but it's still hurts. On simpler terms it also sucks to lose an fwb who was great in bed. Talented single men are few and far between 😩


You need a replacement 👀


Happened to me last month too, it’s all good. Sucks for a night or two tops


It’s not about better, it’s about needing something different, something deeper. There’s a reason you guys are only FWB. A FWB it’s pretty much just about sex and sometimes some companionship instead of being alone, but you need more than that



Need a new one? 🥰

I believe in quick and quality service.
Customer obsession 😉

Hahaha this happened to me too recently

Ouuu same but last year. Found an even better fwb though!


Same thing happened to me. We didn't hookup though. She had change of heart and decided not to bang and focus on herself.
I found two other fwb who are cool af! ✅✅

“Focus on herself” 💀 bro…..

Share a dream you've had that doesn't make sense or spooked you out...

Mine: for the past few months when I dream and I get to a place that'd normally freak me out... the most recent being falling while rock climbing, I would say in my dream "this is a dream... am gonna wake up now" and then I wake up... 😐 what's up with that!? 🤔

Hired cleaner recommended through the Neighborhood app. She came for the first couple of cleanings and did a great job. Subsequent cleanings, she sent other people and today, instead of two adults, the replacement cleaner brought her 13-year-old daughter. Am extremely uncomfortable, not just because of the bate and switch but more so because of child labor laws. I know these individuals can probably use the money, what is the right thing to do?


have you ever emotional cheated on your partner? what was the end result?


I can’t stand working with self proclaimed “straight shooters”. You’re not just being frank, you have a character flaw and lack empathy.


I’m about to quit my job with nothing new lined up. Im excited for the break…but also can’t shake the feeling that I won’t end up landing a new job. I’ve never taken a risk/leap like this in my life (I’m the kind of person who usually has a Plan B and Plan C). Just feeling scared today 🫣


Matched on hinge with a guy in June. We still talk a lot but never met. We were both digital nomads so had a lot to talk relate about. I’m now dating someone. I’m going to be in his state soon and this guy mentioned hopefully we can meet. I’m now dating someone and don’t know if I need to address the hey I have a boyfriend issue. I have posted about my boyfriend on Instagram and everything so I’m assuming he knows. But a part of me also doesn’t want to tell him I’m no longer single. 😬


Posted here a few days back: https://joinfishbowl.com/post_o653krzrc7 Yesterday my in laws called my mom (I am in my late 30s) and expressed that they think I control their daughter and am borderline abusive and that she is afraid of me. They refuse to accept that the decision not to allow anyone to come until she is fully vaccinated and we feel a little better about our newborn is her decision too, not mine. They also think anytime she does not want to spend time with them when we visit is my doing. cont’d….


I “focused on my career”, got everything I could have asked for and now I’m the most single person in the world. Some of my friends think I’m making bank and always mention it when we meet. Meanwhile I have to pretend I don’t hate my inability to have a relationship


What’s it called when you accidentally become an expert in your team on that one topic you dislike? 🤡


Me, to my almost two year old: "stop throwing that ball in the house"
