-you enjoy spending time with them -you feel like you can trust and rely on them for emotional support. -they understand you -visually stimulating -physical intimacy -someone to share experiences and grow old with -potential to have someone you'll always know. -they have a combination of traits that you believe would be difficult to find in another person.
Part of it is kind of a mixture of," You enjoy spending time with that person" and "You want to be able to have unlimited sex with that person."
For me I've only had 1 long term relationship that I've loved so much. Which is the current relationship I'm in now. He helps me understand things better, makes me extremely happy, I can tell him everything, having someone to share things with, go on fun adventures, and a lot of other things.
I enjoy spending time with my partner but that; that is a necessary but not sufficient condition for a monogamous commitment. I love my girlfriend. I want to be the one who makes her happy. I want to help her find the maximum pleasure that she can achieve in her life. I want to explore new places with her. I want to give her unforgettable experiences between the sheets. I want to smile with pride when she is walking buy my side. . . and I want her by my side as much as possible. I love laughing with her. When she cries, I want her burying her face in my shoulder and holding me for comfort. All of those reasons have led me to commit to a monogamous relationship with her.
B has never happened in the history of ever, and I guess c shows that you care about the person to some degree (but it's definitely not for the right reason), and my dad's coming up on his eighth (?) over option d... Ya, I'm going with A...
That’s real love and real happiness. It’s when you go to sleep every night hoping that you are less happy than your lover; it’s hoping that you’ve given everything you could to them so that their day could be just a tiny bit better.
Because it makes perfect sense to remain with the same person long-term if you get along well both inside as well as outside of the bedroom, leading to both of you becoming very much emotionally invested in each other.
I know that I certainly don't want to be alone so if I manage to find someone who I click with very well and who feels the same to me, I don't see why we shouldn't stay together for the long-run.
I like spending time with him, adventuring, and growing together as a couple. Knowing he has my back if needed, and I have his if needed is also nice. Well, I'm not in a relationship now, but I loved those aspects when I was in one.
I never have. I'm not into settling. so far, every long term relationship I've seen were two miserable people selling with each other because they were afraid to be alone, to save money, because they had kids, for regular sex, etc etc
I think it's a combination of A, B and C. Tho I've never been in a long term relationship with a person I don't love so I think love is also one of the factors. Then there is the weird need to be with the person, like I'm not fully awake without them. Everything feels so much duller when they are not there. I don't really know how to describe it better. So I guess emotional dependency
All of the above and so much more really commiting to a relationship is hard 1. You are very attracted to that person and it may not be just for looks maybe they are smart and you find that very comforting 2. Their presence is wanted in your everyday life some days ypu may feel as ifyou need to tell someone something but you dont have anyone close with to do so 3. Your curious as to where tnings would go 4. A family.. many people tend to look for their soulmates or someone to love so they can start a family💑👪 5. Who wants to die alone ? When u can canoodle your love till the end 6. Some just want to experience love👫💘💘
