90% OF BRITONS IN THEIR EARLY TWENTIES WHO?VE HAD A ?FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS? RELATIONSHIP SAID IT RUINED THEIR FRIENDSHIP
The results of a recent survey, asking single people about their views on ?friends with benefits? relationships, have revealed that 90% of Britons in their early twenties who have had a relationship with a friend said it ended up ruining their friendship.
The poll of over 15,000 men and women was carried out by mysinglefriend in association with the DVD release of FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS (out now on Blu-ray and DVD).
Overall results show that of those UK singletons who had embarked on a relationship with a friend, 58% now think it was never a good idea as it always ends in tears. Only 1 in 20 of those surveyed think a ?friends with benefits? arrangement can work for men but not for women.
?It?s fascinating to find that so many people have at some point dated a friend, and in the vast majority of cases this hasn?t worked out. I?d say we?ve found that it?s best to avoid practising on your friends ? most friendships won?t survive!? Said Sarah Beeney, founder of mysinglefriend.
