For some people, happiness is. sth to be shared. I know I was happy when I was single, on my own, but there's sth more to sharing moments with someone you care about. Sharing your love, affection, laughter, happiness. Its all meant to be shared. Whats a life you live for yourself? To me its got to be more than that.
There needs to be recovery time though. You can't truly be with someone when you're not over the last one. And if you get over them that fast, there wasn't truly much of a connection there in the first place.
That is not the true definition a monogamist. Its somebody who is married to one person and only has sex with one person.
What your talking about is somebody who relationship hops. It's done things out of desperation and selfishness usually. And a person who does just that is a major red flag. It means their afraid to be alone and gets another person to keep up with other people, to set some type of crazy goal or to forcefully attempt to forget the other by having immediate sex. That's all. Think of this: Misery loves company.
I have met people like that when I was in college, one of my acquaintances was unbelievable he would break up with someone during morning coffee and be in a new relationship by lunch. He and the others are like you say, they don't seem to be able to be happy on their own.
Haven't been in a relationship yet, but I wouldn't be that extreme. I would give myself time to recover after a break up. But yes, I'm a lover. I want love. I don't think there's anything wrong with trying to find what you're looking for. And I wouldn't do short flings either.
no but i know a person like that. she never finds a good partner, cause she never takes the time to actually look for a good one. she just gets with the next best just to be in a relationship at all times.
I have had this problem myself... i am a serial dater. I've never been completely single for more than 3months... if im not in an exclusive relationship , I'm still going on dates... its odd for me when people say, "i want a relationship. I haven't been with anyone for a long time. " the main reason for me wanting a relationship is to have one consistent sexual partner. Sex is a priority for me, but safe sex is key. I enjoy my space , so after a while i become annoyed with being in relationships.
I've been single for the last 8 years. I'm gonna go with no on this one. I also do think that wanting to be in a relationship is a bad thing, but there is a problem with not knowing how to just be happy doing you. Gotta find the balance.
Im not a serial monogamist but I know some serial monogamist that will fuck anything walking as soon as they are single. Then when they are in a relationship they act like they will be with that 1 person forever until their relationship ends and they say the same shit with the next partner of course. I do not understand how people can handle that, it seems exhausting
