  • I prefer being in a relationship...
    ... up until the abuse (when there is abuse) becomes really disturbing.
    At some point, I also broke up a relationship in order to be free to try my luck with another lady... I think I wouldn't do that anymore today considering the disadvantaged position of men in the dating game. By necessity (because of women's behavior), I'll feel compelled to try my luck first and breakup if it worked out. Which is against the morality I used to hold but necessary to improve my (painfully low) chances at finding happiness.

  • Now I prefer to be single tbh because now I realize that loving someone and them breaking your heart is beyond painful. Taking that risk is just to much for me. I would just like to be single and happy living for myself. But the point of relationships is to be with someone that you connect to on a mental physical level. Once you experience that connections it sort of success your connections with other people. They become your partner / better half. You can talk to them about whatever and fall more and more for them each day. It can be a beautiful thing when done correctly and I think that is the point of them and why we get into them.

  • To connect, to feel, to grow close to someone so that we can share our life and experiences and see the world around us together. To enjoy being alive together to fight and wage war on loneliness and enhance togetherness and be a part of the Human experience. To make us both better as people and learn from each other, to make us both worse as people and develop habits from each other. To laugh about it, to cry about it, to feel about it. To have sex and one day replicate our genes. To leave behind a copy of ourselves, a future, a legacy so that our hopes and dreams can continue in another form long after we've since died and left this Earth behind as dust and broken cells. To die happy rather than bitter and unaccomplished.

    To love.

    No. I don't prefer being single. My girlfriend is the best thing that's ever happened to me and though I do on occasion miss having the same level of freedom being single once afforded me, the trade off for what I got versus what I lost far outweighs it and is much better. Relationships take work. Work that a lot of people aren't willing to do nowadays.
    I won't trade it.

  • Having been in several relationships and one friends-with-benefits situation (which eventually developed into a pseudo-relationship), I can say that single is my preference and being with someone else is secondary. Honestly, removing the sex from the equation turns relationships into a close friendship; while there's nothing wrong with that, lacking that element (especially if both you have sexual desires) detracts from the relationship.

    There's always that element of "should I ask her, is she going to ask me" that leads to relationships crashing and burning. From what I've read, a lot of people are stuck in the limbo of wanting a sexual relationship while simultaneously not wanting to lose their existing friendship. Well, you can't have it both ways. Choose one, or you will end up inadvertently losing both, due to your passive-aggressive behavior and subtle gesturing.

    For my part, my various idiosyncrasies make it difficult to hold down a relationship and, honestly, I prefer my own company. You never really understand what it's like to be in a relationship until you're in one. The "fairytale" of two people who spend all of their time cuddling up on a couch is "cute" but unrealistic, because the vast majority of the time you are two separate people trying to figure out how to add to each other's life rather than creating a nuisance and that disconnect is where a lot of couples simply fall apart. Now I say "cute", because my guess is that a lot of people have the "window shopping" idea of relationships: blissful happiness, harmless and convenient. There when it needs to be and gone when it doesn't. The Facebook relationship. If only life were that simple...

  • The point of a relationship is for you to have people who will help you on yo journey in this world.. Humans weren't made to be alone.. We help each other fulfill the purpose that was given to us.. But right now I will remain single cause I need to work on myself..

  • My view on romantic relationships is that the partner you are seeing is exactly that. You are partners. You work together to accomplish everything. Life becomes more bearable when you have someone to help. And i dont prefer one over the other. Each one had their perks.

  • I feel that a woman completes the whole of a man. Woman is part of man and man is part of woman. Men come from the inside of women and are brought up by women. Women are an important part of men's lives. Men desire a connection with women. Or at least I do

  • The point is to have a connection with someone you don't have with anyone else, or can have for that matter. I like being single, but I'd prefer to be in one (a healthy one) for the experience. If we were to break up then I'd be completely okay with my singleness.

  • Just being honest to each other I think. I am not preferring to be single atm I am ready for a new relationship. I am both - ya know, confused of choosing either in a relationship with a new girl or being rather alone. Hesistation, dilemma, drama, those three can happen anytime to me. People say I should be more open-hearted to everyone around but I just couldn't. I am afraid of being hurt. Even when a girl refused to go out with me it's already a turn-off.

  • To have someone to do things with other than friends, someone to connect and problem solve with, someone to love and be loved by, someone to support you and you them. When I was in a relationship it was the happiest I had been in my entire life so no I don't prefer to be single.

  • No. The reason behind it is that I love my partner she's someone to share my life with and vise versa. The point of relationship is 2 people living 1 life being together and enjoying each others company

  • Relationships are like a strong connection that can continue to develop. I like being single, but I dont necessarily prefer it. I like it because it's easy and I dont feel bad about being rejected or being myself.

  • I need mah freedom, meaning if I was in a relationship I'd be working 75% of the time 20% doing other tasks and 5% with my significant other. It would result in her eventually breaking up anyway

  • If you are young and single you feel free, you have your time
    And if you are young and in relationships you don't feel free
    You can't go meet everyone who you want, go clubbing etc
