Convenience and Reliability. Relationships are more fulfilling and secure sexually and emotionally than one-night stands or paying for a prostitute. The only drawback is that they aren't the best return on investment. You have to weigh personal satisfaction against your wallet. For some people the one night stands or a hooker are just more economical.

Unless of course you're a woman. Then it's a win-win.


NONONONONONONO. You haven't consider the fact that sex doesn't always equals to quality sex! Bad sex to girls are worst than not having sex.


To men as well - bad sex is worst than no sex at all....


Amen to that! lol

I loved the stupid feelings I'd get. How I'd feel as if electric were running from up to the top of my fingertips to the depths of my heart when he'd just hold my hand and squeeze it.
It's an odd feeling, but a nice one.


No offense, but I don't think a fourteen year old knows what dating really is. Then again, everyone is different. You could be quite mature for your age, but that doesn't mean you've experienced all of life's hardships and pleasures.


I actually am quite mature for my age, so I do. Maybe I haven't experienced quite everything (well, thank you God), but I did have feeling for a boy so I do understand the basics.

I bet if I didn't show my age, though, you would have assumed I was older, right?

It depends, what would think I would be based on your posts? I still would have thought you young, if that's what you're asking. But despite being young, you have a seemingly good head on your shoulders and that you should take pride in that fact. If, just asking, you were to look at my posts without knowing my age, what age group (young, middle, old) would you assume me to be?

I don't know I guess it's the company of having someone else that shares the same thoughts you have? XD

Thank you, and sorry if I seemed a bit rude. I just get a bit offended when someone judges me off of my age- and I know you didn't mean it rudely, but even though I'm decently mature, I guess I'm still immature enough to be easily offended :P.

Before I checked your age, actually, I assumed you were 20 or older, but 17 seems to fit you too, although I'm not sure what mature is for that age :P.

Not everyone needs a boyfriend or girlfriend. However, just because that is true for someone at the present time doesn't mean it will always be that way. Sometimes people have different feelings about that subject and begin to want a relationship or they start NOT wanting a relationship.

I understand where you're coming from. Believe me :D

Anyway, everyone's brain develops at different rates, same as their bodies. Also, there are different ways to show maturity, and that's all I'm going to say on the matter. Sorry if I offended you.

When you consider everything that's been posted, aside from the regular and more fulfilling sex, relationships seem impractical. I see relationships as attempts to fulfill animalistic needs for partnership; after all, relationships are there so that our offspring are more likely to survive by being cared for by more than one guardian. At the end of the day, I want a relationship b/c I want the person I like to respond to me emotionally, to protect me, trust me, touch me... I can support and care for someone w/o the need to be in a relationship, but I feel like I should get some of it back (which is selfish, but isn't that how it is?). Aren't they ultimately just to fulfill a void we have instinctually? Couldn't we overcome the need for companionship like some have overcome the need to eat or sleep?

For me, the importance of a significant other is that you have someone that will put you first in their heart.
Yes your parents love you, but they have teach other and I doubt when you're 30 and still live with them do they still share the "lets go to the park and play, I love you dear child" feel. They want time alone now :)

It's just comforting to have someone always there that cares.

When i was a kid i used to party and not care.
I think it comes with time and maturity.

The need to have a life partner.
One day you will get older, you'll notice that when you get home at the end of the day, it's nice to have someone (other than your mom) to talk to.

Ya know someone who can make you smile when you're having a hard time and that is there for you.

I'm pretty sure if you ask old ppl (grand-mothers and grand-fathers) they will say that being alone and/or forgotten is scary and it sux.

It's perfectly fine! I just took it too personal, that's all.

Well when you have a relationship with your family aren't you happy to be around them, or a friend isn't he/she awesome to be around. Ughh forgot your a "loner" pfft i laugh at that. Anyways you have not only emotional attachment with a gf/bf dating you also have the hormones of sexual attraction and maybe mental partial/complete obsession of this person(in a controlled manner so your not a stalker/pyschotic). Their presence is convenient for you to alleviate your mood in the downiest of times and vice versa. In a dating phase i don't really recommend it but you can make a new you and create a image you want to live and not what you are or were; don't recommend because you may revert to your oldself and not fully preform the transformation leading to your happiness or objective of what you were trying to accomplish by playing the role(although you do get great memories of failure and laughter for later on).A life partner basically-includes hormonal,mental-friendship,and emotional attraction/rollercoaster rides to that person when you don't get hormonal and normally emotional attraction to your family or friends Otherwise if you do then your friends are now out of your friendzone and something more and family ...don't even ..........i dont wanna....Overall it is a fun experience or it is a relationship with any other but taking intimacy to its highest level setting off true trust and happiness and vulnerability leaving a fear and security in your heart soo much that you'd marry that person for those feelings. <<---- that sir is dating

Age is always progesses but maturity does not. Age is irrelevant behind the point someone develops traits of human rationality and consciousness that you understand the magnitude of actions and their interconnection to events are them. 1-13 may not usually have these traits,rare cases but follows the generalization. Now 14-17 minority of development and manifestation. This is why there is a stigma of immaturity around young people and kids. Now a person and alot of people don't develop these traits a 35 yr old man may still be pulling pranks on his neighbors like egging juvenile jokes that have no significance except maybe a chuckle a someone's misfortune which should be learned not to do as you may experience the same as them. Hey I'm 17 can't believe I just have written this anyone grows at their own rates some fast than others , but be mindful of the generalization of what people may think and how it may apply to you before reacting so harshly and try to constructively build or educate on the situation with pride if you want but no condescending no one likes it.
