refers to an ambiguous relationship agreement whereby both parties mutually agree to only "sleep" with each other on a casual basis, but have not made their intimate relationship publicly known. This relationship agreement is characterized by minimal or no PDA
(Public Display of Affection).
In addition, the parties may go out to dinner, movies etc. They may even meet the each other's friends. And yet, the person is introduced by their first name, no last name. Neither person is bound to the other. Most importantly, there are no long, drawn out telephone conversations with each other, the phone is used merely to establish a date and time for the next meeting. Everything is in the semblance of having a relationship, minus the PDA
and commitment. This agreement can be terminated at anytime.
Typically, it is established early on that one person wants to have a casually exclusive agreement, and the other party will either comply or not.
This ambiguous relationship agreement is above “f**k buddies
” or “bed buddies
” and is one below dating.
