why do people get into relationships? - October 24th 2010, 11:40 PM

I've been single for 3 years in february and i never understood why i got into a relationship, everyone just seems obsessive or fake in there relationships these days.

So it would be cool if you guys could give me some reasons to why people get into relationships?

Because I found someone who truly makes me happy. Someone who makes me feel like not all guys are assholes, and not all relationships are going to ruin me. Because I love him, and he loves me. We make each other happy.

Because it's fun. Plus it's kind of an ego boost, having a cute girl hanging around me.

I can't speak for other people, but personally, I found the right person, and it's been absolutely amazing and perfect. It's made me very happy.

Because I love spending time with him ~ we can spend hours chatting and never run out of things to talk about and we have the same sense of humour. Because he's an optimistic person who always looks on the bright side and being with him makes me feel happy. Because he's beautiful and because he tells me he thinks I am too. Because he's a pretty fantastic person who makes me appreciate life. We don't want to be with other people, and we make each other happy, so why shouldn't we be in a relationship??

I think people get into relationships because they enjoy being with the other person. If you're not happy in a relationship, don't be in it. Easy peasyy.

There's really not much point in being in a relationship at a young age. It boosts your ego, and gives you more purpose in life. Some people rely on relationships for happiness, which is kind of pathetic...but I digress. They aren't that important, really. They're just more toys in the toy box to play with.

The obsessiveness and fakeness takes place in immature relationships. When you are mature enough to get into a serious relationship, it is wonderful. And yes, there is a degree of obsessiveness when you love someone, love is just like that.

The only 'real' reason people would get into relationships is because it is what makes them happy. Isn't it obvious?
