Can a Friends With Benefits Relationship Turn Into a Relationship?

Group Therapy: Friends With Benefits Question For the Future

This question is an excerpt from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

So I'm working for the summer at a job where I board with my friend Les (whom I've known for 3 years). Just recently, we started fooling around, and have been essentially living like a couple for the last few days. This is the first person I've been with since I ended a long term relationship, and we have a lot of fun and know each other really well. The kicker is our circumstance, and what has become a don't ask don't tell policy about what we'll do when this job is over in August.

While I am slightly stressed about my fraternization policy, my real worry is when this job ends and we both go back to our real lives, which are on opposite sides of the country. While I'm afraid of getting attached to someone whose life is very far from mine, I feel really good being with him right now. My question is how to broach this talk with him without messing up a great friendship... and great sex.
