Here's the Problem With Being Friends With Benefits

September 21, 2015 2 min read

So you finally found someone who makes you laugh, respects your space and is good in bed. You've decided to become "friends with benefits" because ... why ruin a good thing? Relationships can get messy, and both you and your 'partner' have realized that it's just not worth it to give up putting yourself first for someone, anyone, else. Not a problem, right? friends with benefits Well, sort of. There's an issue with this term ... "friends with benefits." Like, sometimes no matter how hard you try to carry this on, feeling develop and the whole thing unravels. And if this person was your friend before any of it? Typically, they'll be out of your life at the first sign of a fight you never saw coming, and then you're left with no sex and no friend. Here are four things to watch out for if you've decided to take the FWB journey: 1 .You expect more from your friends. You're not supposed to expect anything out of it. Stuff happens, then when it's over, things are supposed to just bounce back to normal like you, nor your friend, ever missed a beat. But, when you enter this type of non-commital in-between-the-sheets stuff with a friend, you've already established you ARE committed, because you've chosen this individual as your friend, and you've EXPECTED them to do things friends do. 2. It’s embarrassing to want more. You, or your friend, may find yourselves holding the truth back from one another, because now you view each other in a much more complicated light: sexually. Now, the idea of friends seems to be a mere mystery, as one of the most important and best qualities friends behold is the capability of being utterly open with each other about how you feel, who you are and what you want. The more you begin to think about them in a romantic way, the more you try to conceal it. 3. It drives you insane. You'll find yourself digging so deep to conceal how you feel that it will begin to eat away at you. You'll try to act extra nonchalant. You'll try not to have a vulnerable moment around them for the sake of avoiding confusion. And all those times you just wanted to break down about any aspect of your life with your friend? You can't anymore. 4. When it's over, it's over.  So the two of you have called it quits now that you've gone through all the FWB stages. You go about your regular lives, hanging out with friends on Friday nights at a local bar, when you run into each other, because, SURPRISE, your friends are the same friends. You feel totally awkward and trip up trying to carry on a normal conversation with them. Where did the friendship go? Have you ever tried the friends with benefits thing out?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
