This arrangement would generally be called a friend with benefits, or a fuck buddy, or a romantic friendship, or perhaps even a relationship—with “no strings attached.” But let’s be real: There are always strings, aren’t there?It was while planning this vacation that it hit me: The two longest relationships of my life have both been with men who I was never officially dating.For a recap, check out this detailed Jelena timeline.Fans began shipping Ariana Grande and Big Sean back in 2013, after the pair released their music video for Ari's song "Right There" and looked beyond adorable together in it.But at that point, Ariana was still dating You Tuber Jai Brooks and Big Sean was dating star Naya Rivera, and the two claimed to be "just friends".Big Sean later admitted in a radio interview in November 2014 on 97.9's The Box that their relationship started out as a friendly thing that grew based on their shared passion for music.In a few days, I’m going to Cuba on vacation with a guy I’ve been sleeping with for eight years, but whom I've never once called my boyfriend.We live on different continents, but inevitably, a few times a year, we find each other somewhere in the world, have a few days of romance, and then go our separate ways.
Because you’re best friends, there’s no worry about saying something wrong.
Boyfriends and girlfriends have come and gone, but my friends with benefits have stood the test of time. That’s longer than I predict my first marriage will last.

Maybe it starts slowly with a few flirting glances, a touch once in a while, but never goes any further. On one hand, both people cherish the friendship they already have and don’t want to risk losing it.
