  • I date primarily for a future long term relationship, but I haven't really had a long term relationship...so its also to find what I really want in life,a future partner.

  • I voted 'C'. If I couldn't see myself marrying someone I wouldn't wanna date them. I just don't wanna date a bunch of random guys, if I only dated one guy and he became my husband, I'd be happy with that.(I know that is probably unrealistic, but I know some people who have done it.)

  • You forgot one option and that is loneliness. Humans are social creatures; thus, we need and depend on one another. Even though many of us strive to be independent, it's really difficult to travel on this journey called life by yourself. We seek comfort and support during our darkest times. That's where a great relationship is applicable. That significant other provides that support. More importantly, family members will eventually die, and family members don't live with you, or at least, they're not supposed to live with you for a majority of your life. During those lonely moments, i.e at night, a significant other makes it less lonely. They also provide you warmth and intimacy. They sometimes give you purpose to your life, and it allows you to grow because you're not focused on yourself all of the time. It teaches you how to give as well as receive. Setting the emotions aside, we seek partners because we've been programmed to reproduce.

    • lonelines can be included in "B"...cauz if you're lonely, you're not fully immersed socially where you live. :-P

  • I said dating to find a serious relationship, but that's only because I already found one and it was dating that led me there and that's what I was looking for in the first place.
