In the age of dating apps and trying hard to ‘act chill’ to hide your real ~FeELinGs~, things aren’t always clearly defined when it comes to relationships.

Enter: situationships and the ever-popular, friends with benefits scenario.

‘The talk’ is alwayyss hard to initiate, but before you go cry into a Michelada and turn the volume hasta arriba on Paquita la del Barrio, here are some interesting and funny FWB stories that will make you jajaja ???? and help you feel *a little* better after asking your (potential) chikibaby situation, “What are we?” ???? ????     

1. Special Delivery!

“When I was 18 I took a girl to a motel and after sex I ordered a pizza and my ex’s mom delivered it.” – Emilio, 35

But was the pizza good tho? ???? ???? Real talk.

2. Water or Vodka?

via GIPHY

“I was once getting to a know a girl and had a casual sexual relationship. Then one night after we hooked up she was laying face down in my bed not really talking much. Mumbling. So I asked her if she was okay and wanted water. She said yea so I went to get her water bottle out of her purse. Her water bottle was full of pure vodka.

Homegirl was an alcoholic and I didn’t realize it because she was pre-dental and always used mouthwash and mint gum. So I had to call her parents who were an hour away to come and pick her up at 2AM on a Sunday night because she couldn’t drive home. That was how I met her parents.” – Christian, 28

NOT how we want to ‘meet the parents!’ #AyYaiYai

3. Dirty Laundry

“My friend dated a guy (in their early twenties) and they had been going out for a while. She would come over to his place and forget a t-shirt or bra from time to time. One day, they were watching TV in his room and his mom walks in with his laundry and a separate pile of “her” stuff and holds up a racy piece of lingerie, saying “I bet this is yours.” Her face turned red! ???? ???? The mom walked out and she turned to him and says, “That’s not mine!” – Alejandra*, 28

4. Shake your Groove Thing

“[We] used to go to a hotel. It was great because there was a rotating disco ball and we always put it on. We’d always buy a bottle of wine and crack it open and it was awkward if it (the disco ball) stopped midway because we’d have to put it back on.” -Jessica, 30

Casual ???? ???? with a disco ball? That’s called sophisticated fun. ????

5. Unexpected visitor

“During the time my brother and I were roommates, he was hooking up for years with this one girl. One day our mom stopped by and went into his room to clean. She pulled the bed covers down and this girl was just hiding under there trying not to be noticed! Needless to say, my mom stopped dropping by unannounced.” Fernando*, 39

This is why a courtesy knock is muy importante.

6. Bi-Curious

via GIPHY

“Richard was around 42 years old when I met him on a gay dating website, not an app. He was single at the time and bi-curious. After asking him to meet up and f***, we casually continued to hook up with each other for a year and a half.

One day, Richard told me he now had a girlfriend and was living with her. I then distanced myself from him, but he would hit me up asking for some guy-on-guy action.

I thought, ‘Is this cheating? I am giving him something his gf can’t give him.’

We would see each other once every 2-3 months. Every time I left, I would feel bad because of his girlfriend, but the sex was good.

Richard eventually asked me to do boyfriend-like things, and that’s when I put my foot to the break and decided to not take it further.” —Chris, 29

Put your apuestas—who thinks the girlfriend eventually found out? ???? ????

7. The No F*ckbois Diet

via GIPHY

“I had to lose weight and I went to see a nutritionist. I was basically the human ???? emoji once I laid eyes on my nutritionist. He was a tall guy with an athletic build. We broke the ice when he asked me how many alcoholic drinks I had a week and I answered, “That depends with which friends I am going out with.” He began to crack up.

At the end of our monthly sessions, he would walk me to my car and talk about his travels. Sadly I found out he had a girlfriend and we just would talk. Then, he told me had broken up with his gf and we began to go out.

There was a lot of chemistry and it seemed we were starting to become more than friends with benefits, however he never told me those magic words of being boyfriend and girlfriend.

One day I found out that he was continuing to talk with his ex and when I asked him about it, he said he was still talking to her. That’s when I started to distance myself from him. We continued to be friends although we stopped kissing each other.

Lesson of the story: Don’t be with guys who are barely ending a relationship. It doesn’t work for something serious.”

*Takes out notes section on iPhone to remember that quote.*

@maria_uve_ / Instagram

Whether quarantine has brought you and your boo closer together, broken the relationship or brought out some ugly, we all know that Quarantining while in a relationship isn’t totally ideal. After all, when the option of getting space away from each other is off the table certain aspects of your relationship can seem more dire and troubling. We asked Latinas on our Instagram page what dating has like been during the Coronavirus and boy did they deliver!

How are you managing your relationship with your s/o right now?

Are you quarantining together or separately? How is the distance affecting your relationship?⁠

Check out the answers to our a questions below!

Dealing with long-distance

“I’m in a long-distance relationship but the uncertainty of when will we be able to make it to each other’s country is killing me.” — chaser.of.wonders

When the relationship just got started

“We’ve been dating since November and we are each in our own homes. So the skin hunger is real. I’m out of work but he is still working because construction is considered en essential service. It feels like we’ve missed relationship milestones on one hand, but have been together way longer because the situation has made time feel eternal. Some days are good and I feel like we are super connected and some days, if he’s too busy or my anxiety is high or we keep missing each others calls, it feels like we are drifting apart. Overall we are just doing the best we can and working on communication.” —angiebsantana

Facetime for lovers

“FaceTime has been a lifesaver and we send each other food through uber eats or online shop for them to be surprised the next morning and that kinda thing. We maintain date nights and watch a movie through FaceTime. It’s been hard we only live 30 min away but our love language is physical touch so I mailed him one of my shirts that smells like me and he sent me one of his hoodies to help me out during these times. ❤️ kept the love alive.” — okaykat96

You could be closer than ever

“Quarantined together and we’ve grown closer spiritually, emotionally and more in love than ever before.” —gelseyes

Heartbreak hurts but it also means growth

“He said he needed distance from me.. and we were quarantined apart 😐 so we broke up.” — natmrte

Do nie things for eachother and together

“We will have been a couple for 7 years this August (married for 1.5) and this is the most time we’ve ever spent together bc we have had opposite work schedules our entire relationship. It’s been awesome. I get to see him when I wake up and he sees me when he wakes up. We make meals together, have done bike rides around the block, watched all kinds of movies etc.”–_hi_rose_

Communication is KEY

“Stronger 💞 we have been communicating more than ever. We both have busy schedules even during quarantine but manage to check in throughout the day.”–wanderess.v
