Does KS unintentionally filter out FWB relationships?

on Sun 20 May - 12:36
Hi, all,

This is actually on-topic, but I’m posting it in Off Topic because I’d like some input from people who haven’t made it all the way into the forum.

Looking on some of the more mainstream sites, I’m seeing a lot of consangs who aren’t in full-time relationships. They get together once in a while and many aren’t exclusively consang. With them, it’s more of an occasional, “family with benefits” style of relationship.

On KS, this is the exception rather than the rule. So I’ve wondered in the past whether KS is somehow unintentionally filtering them out.

Maybe the folks in FWB relationships just don’t feel the need to get on KS. Maybe it’s something else.

Any thoughts?

Best,
UN

We don't filter them out, nor should we as long as they are supportive of others here. I think you got it right that they don't see the need to come here, at least as much of a need.

Just to clarify, when I used the word “filter,” I wasn’t thinking that anyone was deliberately discouraging folks in FWB relationships from joining. More like there was a natural, unintentional filtering process in place, due to lack of perceived need or whatever. I know we have a few members who fit that description, but not very many.

I’ll clarify the OP.

Best,
UN

It seems to me that, in general, reunion relationships make more people activist, or at least likely to look for others. FWB is on the other end of the spectrum. These are generalizations, though.

This is just s guess but I see the people wbo are fwb and not really too emotionally involved I think for them its more of a kink fetish thing. Since we arent a kinky fetish community it may not appeal to them.

Maybe, Celes, but I couldn’t imagine doing it for just kicks. Though people do all kinds of things I couldn’t understand for kicks.

Best,
UN
