    • I'm not.

    • But that wasn't the question. The question was: Yes or no - Does a relationship make your life better?

  • I can work out more now, I was married or in a relationship for five years.
    I eat better now too. I've ran Spartan races, did some MMA, passed some college classes, and I learned the guitar and Russian since then as well.

    Here's the dilemma:
    I'm 29. I'm about to give up (as I always say) but I'm horny so its hard to give up (pun accident) and I'm lonely... also... complicates that.

    Here's the thing, some girls I have liked have rejected me because they had low self esteem. Most of the time I am over looked do to my quirky personality which doesn't match my coincidentally bad boy looks (scars from war). I'm awkward... I've never slept with a girl I wanted to be with except once in five year relationship with a sociopath... and women I really wanted to sleep with have never slept with me.

    We are taught by media our peers and for those of us with only mommies that we MUST have female validation to reaffirm our manhood which is complete utter yes utter bullshit. I've read a lot of psychology about this and I have my own theories.
    When I stopped caring so much though I learned Russian and the guitar and I'm still honing those skills I have much to learn and I also have to kids to raise.
    So you know what ladies... you missed your chance... good bye and good riddance
    (I that now - until I'm lonely and horny again) I can't WAIT TO HAVE LOW TESTESTORONE OR ED!!!

  • It All depends, @Thrifty if She is worth all this Effort.
    And with having a Girlfriend, it also sort of gives you a Sense of Security to know Someone cares.
    Good luck. xx

    • I dunno if you believe in God, but for me God is my sense of security.

      This might sound weird but when I listen to love songs, all I think about is God. And I know that God is invisible and its kind of hard to touch something thats not physical but I don't really have to depend on anyone else.

    • Show All
    • Yes, I'd gotten that by now, but you hadn't said that before @Paris13 commented.

  • Having a boyfriend makes my life feel more complete, for sure. It's great to know you've got someone who will (almost) always be there to support you. Who you can open up to about nearly anything, and they'll be a willing audience.

    Will they make you better in ways other than behavioural/emotional, like improving your diet or habits? Not directly. They may help in ways such as that by providing motivation for you to make yourself a better person for them, but you're still going to have to do all of the actual work to accomplish that.

    • Hm. Interesting that a relationship with a boyfriend is like a relationship you could have with God.

      1. Feels more complete
      2. Who will (always) be there to support you
      3. Who you can open up to about anything and they'll be a willing audience -> Prayer

      So why do I even need a girlfriend if God can offer these things to me?

    • ok true I suppose if you feel like you truly get all of those from god, and it's enough to receive them in a spiritual sense; lacking anything physically present.

    • The only thing lack, at times, is sex and physical intimacy which I only crave either when I wake up with a woody or when horny.

  • If dating whoever you're dating doesn't make both your lives better, then you're dating the wrong person.

  • Ehh, getting into my relationship has definitely made my life better. It's made me happier and it's helped me grow as a person. However, it's not a fix it quick situation, there are some things a relationship just can't get rid of and that's a fight you have to do yourself, you just have someone there cheering you on.

  • Personally for me it does, I don't let myself go during relationship but obviously there are times where we have over nights and i'm not going to wear make up 24/7. It keeps my private region in tip top shape.

  • Its not about having a boyfriend or girlfriend I think its more who your boyfriend or girlfriend is. Having soneonesomeone in your life who complements it is sure gonna make your life better than just having a boyfriend or girlfriend

  • I think you would take care of yourself more
    Have more frequent hair styles and be more polished in general.

    You wouldn't feel so lonely and appreciate each others company and if you needed emotional support you would have that.

  • Not necessarily...

    Instead, you have a person who with a bunch of their own baggage going on at the same time. It takes a degree of personal stability to make balancing these mutual buckets of need at the same time.

    Also, a girlfriend isn't a mom to make sure you're eating healthy and taking showers!

    • When you become comfortable with yourself... I mean treating yourself kindly and nurturing your health and happiness... You are the most lovable and able to love. It sounds like a damn hallmark card, I know, but it's one of those things I've realized is true over the years. Good luck!

    • PM me if you can.

  • It varies. With some people, it can make them comfortable and complacent; kind of lazy in their habits and they let themselves go. For others, it makes them want o be a better person, so having a partner pushes them in a good way to stay in shape and be active together.

What Guys Said 25

  • Having a SO can motivate you to do better with your life in many ways. When you are single with nobody to be responsible for, you can do whatever the hell you want. It's not that you are really responsible for your SO, but SOs have a strong influence on each other. So your actions affect them, and their actions affect you. You have a natural tendency to make yourself a better person for them, and vice versa.

    Sometimes couples make improvement together. For example they might start working out together, and give each other motivation. Or they might improve their diet, or quit smoking together.

    They can also have a negative affect, but that's a bad relationship.

    Family and even room mates can have a similar affect, but not as strong.

  • Well I know it would make mine in particular better. But if I'm not mistaken having some kind of companion in life makes your brain function better - what with it releasing some kind of pheromones n stuff.

  • Only if she motivates you for that, but that means you aren't self-reliant and independent enough to function on your own, which is kinda sad.

  • The right girl, or guy, im not judging - can enhance your life if you are happy with it and yourself in the first place. If you have underlying issues it's not going to solve them. Some people are unhappy and think being in a relationship will make everything better. It usually ends with with both people unhappy and them breaking up

  • Lol, no. And if so, not for long.

    Women start out ok in the best of circumstances, but they are quickly bored.

  • It can go two ways:

    1) You want to do more for them and yourself so you begin to take better care of yourself

    2) You get comfortable and let yourself go
