Depends of which culture she or he was from, suggesting what types of "things" in a relationship would be deemed acceptable in private or public.
Personally, sex should be a special gift that can be controlled or happened when mutually comfortable and 150% sure that it should happen at the moment ALONE TOGETHER. Avoid stripping the underclothing... lessens the chances of making a baby when either of the couple is unsure about sex or child bearing, rearing, caring... for the rest of their lives.
Kissing makes me feel loved and safe for some reason, sexual intentions from the lover or not, I feel loved.
The touchy feelly stuff makes me feel wanted...^
Even if I were to be super individualistic and be perfectly fine alone, true relationships can unlock parts of one's self that have never been discovered yet.
I see true relationships as pacts or teams of lovers who will fight against all odds to make things work for the well-being of all and have someone to really confide/trust with many types of feelings or situations...
Ehm, if the only benefit you see in a relationship is sex, I suggest you wait. There are many benefits of a relationship. Sharing your life with someone, having someone to come home to, someone who is there for you no matter what, feeling loved and accepted, feeling that warmth and just feeling...complete. If you just want sex, get a friend with benefits.
It depends on what both of you feel like a relationship should be and how long you are together. it also depends on what both of you are comfortable with. every couple and every person is different on their needs and wants in a relationship. you need to discuss this with the person you are with.
My boyfriend is my best friend in the whole world, but what makes him different than most best friends is the sexy part. He also refuses to let me pay for things which I think is unfair because I should contribute, but it does save me money which is nice. Hm... what other benefits. I never feel alone anymore. I feel beautiful.
For tease, to bond, curiosity, trust it depends. be open ask if you are unsure a couple who communicate always has a good relationship ask your partner not us they are the ones that knows the true meaning
When I was younger it was for experimentation... there would be certain guys I'd want to try different things with sexually, romantically, etc. Eventually I found out what I want, and now short relationships just seem like a waste of time, after a while you've seen it all and you want something more meaningful. I recommend everyone experiment... be safe of course! you learn a lot about yourself.
