This is something I never really understood about dating and relationships in general. Some people date countless guys or girls only to break up with them a few days or weeks later.
Don't get me wrong, I understand it that people want sex and such. But that's what 'casual' dating, friends with benefits or one-night stands are for.
What I don't get is how people can get so into a relationship and think it's serious, the love of their life and all that jazz only to break up shortly afterwards?
I mean, why attach yourself so closely to someone else emotionally just to cause yourself lots of pain and sadness?
If I commit myself into a serious relationship I do my best to make it work. If it somehow doesn't work out in the end I'll think hard about why that was the case. And not just start the next one with my new "love of my life".
Do people actually BELIEVE that their "serious" relationship will last (which would make them fairly stupid)? Or do they know that it will eventually fail anyway (which would make them deceitful)?
For girls this might apply:
Be single -> come across hot guy -> date him because he's hot, feel good -> he has bigger flaws than expected / you get bored -> break up -> hate all guys -> feel lonely -> look for a relationship -> new guy comes along -> date him

I always try to make things work between me and my SO. I have dated more than one person, and yes it was sad that things ended. But that happens. I don't actively go out looking for someone just to date, I am dating to find that person who will be special to me for the long
I'm not sure how you find that person without dating them. I have never been the person to just go out and date a different person every week, most of my relationships have lasted several months and then I carefully searched for someone new. I took time to get over the relationship ending and find out why it ended.
I don't take relationships lightly, if I am with someone I am committed and I am careful to make sure that we are on the same page.
I hear what you are saying though. I know people who do that. They get involved with someone, date for a week and that person is their "one and only!". But in two weeks time they are broken up and it's onto the new person.0
