I would love to know what is so great about serious relationships. I've never really been in one myself but I would much rather just have a friend with benefits because that is a whole lot easier and then you don't really have and problems

A friends with benefits will have sex with you and then get up and leave. If you don't feel like having sex, then he doesn't feel any need to come see you. Somebody with a hotter body makes him an offer? He's already forgotten you.
A boyfriend goes to sleep with his arms around you. Feeling ill? He'll come take care of you. Feeling down? He'll come over and make stupid jokes until you laugh. Somebody with a hotter body makes an offer? He says, "No thank you; I'm in a committed relationship."10

I promise you that friends with benefits relationships DO have problems. Every single one of my girlfriends NEVER leaves a friends with benefits relationship unscathed. Why? Because with all of that bonding and chemicals going on, you get attached, you feel used, etc. Mind you, not every woman has this problem I'm sure, but to say they don't have problems isn't entirely true.
Serious relationships are based upon a foundation of genuine feelings and trust, where you two sort of take an unspoken oath to help each other out and not bail the minute things get hard. You can trust that this person is a fan of yours, and is going to have your back even at your worst. Assuming it's a real relationship of course.6
