You're a pretty girl but you're letting guys use you. If you want a boyfriend, then FWB is NOT the way to go about it.
I'm not talking about playing mind games or leading guys on, but if you wait until you know that you and a guy like each other as MORE than "just friends" you won't have guys playing with you and then dropping you.
Please remember that insecurity runs both ways. A guy who thinks he's just a FWB won't know that you have feelings for him, and may fear that you're dating other people and planning to drop him cold. Some people would rather be the one to end a relationship, just so no one can accuse them of having been dropped. I think that's whqt happened with Mr "school is starting, gotta go."
If you're ready for something more traditional, then you've got to stick more closely to the traditional format. No sex unless you have feelings for the guy and he has feelings for you. You don't have to say the "l" word, but there should be an understanding between you and the other person that you're together because you really like each other, not because you're bored or drunk.
It's a new school year and you'll meet lots of new people. Just treat them the way you'd like to be treated and you'll have all the dates you can handle :)
