Friends with benefits


Hey, so the past few years I’ve ( male) been in a lot of “friends with benefits” situations and as of recently I want more than that.
Is it a bad idea to continue in “friends with benefits” situation until I find a long-term partner? Or should I stay single till I find a long-term relationship?

I don’t mind doing the “friends with benefits” situation until I find a long-term relationship, but not sure if there are any drawbacks from this.

Thanks.
