If you are seeing someone (fwb) and you start liking them more than you should and you tell them you need to back away for a minute to get yourself in check, is that considered cutting them off??

I wouldnt say so. Id say either your scared to get too close or scared of hurting yourself or someones partner

Never happened to me; always the other way around. If I sense a play partner is developing feelings (and dammit, they all have), I'll back away even though they've all been highly educated and successful women.

No, just a precaution is all if I t was discussed and understood at the initial start and both were genuine in their thinking and expectations

No. It is being realistic and wise to evaluate the situation. Good luck.

I think that it is cutting them off, and that they should move on to someone else.

No, you have said "its over" you are just taking time and space to see where you want to go with the relationship

If they think you are cutting them off, chances are they are developing those feelings also. Just my gut feeling.

Nope...not cutting them off, you are just trying to back step a bit to reserve your safe space. Nothing wrong with that and its probably wise~~

I had a FWB years ago, we both fell for each other but she wouldn't leave her husband.
So I had to break it off, I wanted more than she would give.
I think its very hard to be intimate with someone on a long term situation without feelings getting involved.

If you want to keep the FWB thing alive, then stepping back from time to time is wise. I had a FWB relationship for several years. We both agreed to "cut each other off" from time to time just to keep a handle on things. It is human to develop attachments to the person we are most comfortable with. Take a break. But also be prepared cause somewhere along the line, one of you will move on.

It makes sense o occasionally step back from each other, just to keep the boundaries intact.

It is very wise to back off if things get a little off.
