Well, do you eventually want something more permanent with someone? Do you want to find someone to be committed to and build a life together? If so, then you probably won't find that while you're doing your thing with Mr. Reconnection. You may end up being too focused on this ambiguous FWB/lovers/friends relationship to go looking for someone else or even be open to pursuing potential mates.

So if you do eventually want something more permanent (not with him, that's probably not going to happen) be mindful of keeping your options open and dating/sleeping with other people while you're having fun with your friend. Also probably separate from your husband for real so you can finally move on and live a single life.
