  • Generally, no. Thanks to our overly digitized culture, everone is just in a hurry all the time, and it's all about instant gratification. People have no patience anymore, and patience is crucial for a successful relationship. It's also imperative for both parties to have patience for that to work.

    What's the point of starting a relationship only to get dumped over trivial BS? I noticed that I have been a lot more careful and weary when it comes to relationships because I'm tired of dealing with flaky women. I wouldn't be surprised if that's a problem that women frequently run into as well, but because I'm a man, I can't make any concrete claims about that.

    Oh! And the most annoying part is folks who ghost you instead of growing a pair of gonads, and actually telling you that they're no longer interested.

    Of the many potential SO's I've communicated with over the last 4 months, only 1 (yes, you read correctly, ONE) had the decency to tell me she's not interested after talking for 2 weeks. It's just annoying.

    It's so bad, that I now expect to be ghosted everytime, and in the rare occasions when I'm explicitly told it's over, I'm so happy that she actually told me, that I forget that she's no longer interested 😂 (and there's nothing wrong with that).

  • What trouble? Relationships are not trouble. If anything having a loving person at your side, who gets you, who listens to you, who hugs you and tell everything i going to be oukey is the solution not the problem. Having a healthy relationship is like a remedy to your soul. Everything seems dark and ever so easily the person you love comes and makes everything better without trying. And you can do the same for them! It's beautiful and it's the best in the world. If all of this is worth any trouble, whatever it is that you mean, yes of course it is!

  • I believe if both parties are mature enough to put down their phones and put in actual work on emotional and intellectual connections then yes! Well worth it! But if we sit behind our phones, dive headstrong into our jobs, ignore that that person exists until after 5pm then no. Basically be a grown up if you want a relationship. Be a kid if you just want to fuck.

  • With social media being as big as it is nowadays, it’s really hard to trust people, being as it’s so easy to meet new people, message them, and meet them, despite being in a relationship. I know of way too many relationships that have been wrecked by it so I just choose to focus on myself.

  • I think everyone has the same goal, to be happy and so if the opportunity is there... why not take advantage? As long as the relationship is healthy and growing, I see no problem with it!

  • You know it's probably not a good thing if I had to think about this question before replying. Like I really had to think hard before replying to this one!

    No, they're really not- at least not if you're single or trying to find someone. The dating pool gets more atrocious with time and future generations.

    When I was younger, I was that girl that wanted a boyfriend because "everyone else had one" or it just seemed a part of growing up: get in a relationship.

    But now that I'm older, and been through way more heartache and drama with the opposite gender than I care to talk about, I really don't think it is worth the trouble.
    Hell, if you're single, STAY SINGLE. It's easier and less stress, at least until the right person comes along!

    Look at the people out there just looking for fuck buddies, friends with benefits, and short term relationships. And if that works for you? Good for you! Not going to judge you.

    But for those of us not looking for those kind of relationships, or can barely get someone to approach you for a date? It's just irksome more than anything trying to pursue a relationship.

    • Yes, my heart goes out to you. I too was like this and have been through more women than I can remember (not good).

      I can’t speak for everyone but for me is true: it is said you take every sex partner and every fantasy to the bedroom with you and this adversely effects your relationships and sexual behavior with the one person you have chosen to be with until you die.

      If I could my life over, I would never have sex outside of marriage and never look at pornography.

      With that said I had to learn to be the person I wanted to marry. What I mean is; I wanted a good woman who was not into pornography, thus I had had to break my addiction (difficult very difficult) and many other things.

      List the things you want in your life partner and then become that person, this will help you attract that kind of person.

      I wish you good luck this is a process and will not happen quickly.

  • Relationships will always be the same if two people really love eachother. They will both do what they feel necessary to make another person happy and support them in life. No matter what century, what year. traditions will change, but people will still make connections.

  • I suppose it all depends on the person. Some people are less trouble than others and everyone brings their own mix of stuff into your life. If it’s good then go with it, if it’s not then cut them loose. You don’t need to put work into someone just to be in a relationship.

  • Yes they are I seriously don’t understand why today’s society is all about “one night stands” and “random hookups”... all they just do is cause a lot of heartbreak (at least for me anyway)

  • Of course for the right person but you gotta go through a lot of coal before you find that diamond in the rough.

    In other words you gotta go through a lot of trouble, pain and misery before you find the one that makes all of that worth trouble, but when you do find that person it makes the whole journey worth it.

    • Should the woman be a virgin just for you?

    • Show All
    • ... plus she qas able to experience those young romances and I didn't

    • Women don't see being your first love as a PERK. So neither should you. Anyone worth having in life has most likely been loved by somebody. Most times it just doesn't work out but it's not their fault for trying. So I guess it's up to you to continue to feel this way or not but my advice man.. let it go. You are 24 ... you won't meet too many women that have been through anything that you can't overcome. Trust me on that. Either way good luck to you man!

  • I believe people in relationships can avoid trouble if every "rule" legitimately suits both partners and neither of them become unpredictable.

  • If you define every romantic relationship as trouble then that's what you'll get.
    I would be incredibly happy and thankful for a relationship.
    Not just romantic, I would love to have friends too.

  • I want kids.

    90% of women I can't stand the idea of being a romantic partner. I have a very good idea of what the personality of my 'soul mate' is like.

  • We were created for relationship, so of course relationships are worth it. What you must ask yourself what type of relationship do you really need (not want):

    The best relationship is one where you save yourself for your life partner (no sex). Your life partner is your best friend, for the man the sexiest lady, for a woman the greatest man. This is way we should not get into sexual relations without being committed to the relationship, leading to marriage. Marriage is commitment.

    Marriage is unconditional not love. Marriage is not just great sex. When you marry it is for life, no matter what life gives; sickness, health, poverty, wealth, joy or sorrow. No matter what you are committed to each other. There is no excuse for dissolving this union of two people. This takes commitment, you are both committed to make the marriage work at all times in all ages. Looks change, sex changes, but commitment last for a lifetime.

  • I don’t want a relationship but it’s not because people think it’s super difficult. It’s really not that difficult. There is not a ton of “trouble” to deal with. Divorce rates for the new generation are going down and less people are getting married, but that’s all positive in my opinion. We’re more open minded than ever, we are more focused and we’ll prioritized, and we’ve got plenty of shitty source material to remind us of what not to do.
    This is just my opinion though, you don’t have to take my word for it.
