A slightly tamer version of the secular term, Friends with Christian Benefits (FWCB) tend to be two friends who are
- not in a relationship with one another for spiritual reasons, despite a mutual attraction, and are not acting on this attraction;
- attracted to one another and, without being in a formal relationship, are acting on this attraction; but whose acting is limited to kissing. These FWBC may be conducted in secret.
Note: these two examples are not mutually exclusive, and such a couple can often swing between the two from time to time.
"Hey, are James and Hannah together?"
"It's complicated...I think they're FWCB."
"You know...Friends with Christian Benefits."
