I suppose I had this ideal, I don't have any interest in relationships that I don't think could potentially result in marriage. i've always viewed relationships at pointless unless there is an expectation to eventually commit if you're both right
But I have a friend, she's always dating guys. Almost as if there is no emmotional commitment but i know quite a lot like that. I also wanted to wait for marriage because I didn't see the point otherwise, but this girl just gets in relationships and i wouldn't really call her the affectionate type and she doesn't have sex with most guys she's with.

A good example is my current girlfriend. We got together back in February . We both knew we would have to break up in September 100%, she is starting university and I am going home after a year abroad. I can't stay and she has 3 years of uni, so it was decided even thinking about staying together was dumb.
I suppose constant, reliable access to sex is a big part, plus we got tested a while back and we are both clean and keeping it exclusive keeps it that way, hence not just friends with benefits . Plus, I enjoy relationship sex waaaaaay more than casual sex anyway.
Some of it is for the company as well, we enjoy doing things together so we like hanging out and going out, with the mutual physical attraction and desire to keep exclusive a relationship made sense, even though we knew we would not stay together.
In the end, even if we could make it last long term, I couldn't see myself with her after 2-3 years, certainly not marriage, she is too implosive and has an addictive personalty I don't like too much.
But for now it is fun and simple with good sex, so why not? 8 months is enough time to really enjoy a relationship with someone, hell it is longer than most at our age!0
