I honestly feel like they're kind of a waste of time, and i'm open to discussion about all this
1: Lets say you meet a nice girl, things go great, you talk about marriage, you're 4 years into the relationship and even living together, then suddenly she cheats and you leave her.
In those 4 years you could have found THE wife material that would have never left you and stayed with you forever. but you'll never know cause you spent all your energy into this girl.
2: same as # 1 but lets say she doesn't cheat and you guys end up married and happily ever after (serious, no fights or break ups ever)
well you're missing out on the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of hot 8-10s out there that you could mess around with and have fun with (both sex and just normal fun) but you would never know cause you're tied down to one girl
I used to be an anti social guy but i've been going out more and my mind = blown at all of the potential awesome long term friends you could meet out there, just by stepping outside and talking to people at a big social event (concert, some sort of gaming con, etc etc)

Yes when relationships fail you will always feel regret, and feel like you wasted your time but it obviously worth it in the beginning or you wouldn't have gotten into a relationship. It's always in our control to decide when a relationship is getting unhealthy or not going anywhere and it's our responsibility to get out of it. As for missing out on a bunch of 8-10's not everyone wants to get laid that much so either you want a long term relationship (successful or not) or you sleep around and never take your life seriously. Everyone has the freedom to choose. What's the point of living if you're going to make regrets later? Just kindly accept a fail as a learning experience and move on. No need to overthink things0
