Romantic benefit relationships? Does it work? What can you tell me about it? I've read theory about it but I'm looking for personal insights, opinions and experiences. Thanks. -- Lysen

A1 One can coexist peacefully with any type under the right set of circumstances. Understanding and acceptance of one another are what have to be achieved for success. Relations of benefit certainly have more chances of success that those of supervision because they seem to be more benign with far fewer attempts at one trying to control or break free of the other. If the benefactor is a giving type who does not expect anything in return and the beneficiary does not feel undervalued or impotent, then the relationship can succeed. However, both would have to accept that on an information processing level, it likely will not be an equal exchange. The beneficiary, even with the higher intelligence, will likely not be able to ever become helpful to the benefactor's rationalization processes. And, be very aware that strong sexual attraction will mask a huge number of flaws in the short term. -- Anonymous
