No. Absolutely not. I would never go anywhere with someone, friend or lover, out of obligation. I either want to go or I don't. If I owe them, then our relationship is a farce.

Yes, because I don't really ever feel romantic feelings for anyone.

I would not date someone out of obligation simply because it would be unfair to the person in question. In the end, it would only make them miserable.

If a man has sacrificed himself for me or shown me kindness, I would probably fall in love with him anyway, it wouldn't be an obligatory thing.

Altruism is such an attractive trait for me, in addition to honesty and romanticism.


If I feel nothing for someone, I would tell him I feel nothing, I don't like lying or beating around the bush.

I've done that before. Friends "borrowed" my phone and started texting this guy who liked me. Later that day, he called me to tell me he was so happy that I'm his gf.

I felt bad telling him it was a mistake, considering how genuinely happy he sounded. Besides, I was 14. I had 0 clues about how relationships worked so I was very indifferent to the idea of having a boyfriend.

Needless to say that didn't go so well...

Hell no. That's like tying a noose for someone who's suicidal because you think it's ok.
Nothing good comes out of that.

No, fuck that! Well, maybe if it were a celebrity- say if universal balance hinged on me dating Mila Kunis and sealing the deal later that night, but generally if a woman's trying to make you date her, It'd probably be a good time to check for crazy eyes.

I like this thread because after seeing Tokimeki Memorial I was wondering
the same thing but the other way around. Are guys obligated to date a girl
just because she demands it?

I think it has a lot to do with needing to avoid embarrassing someone else.

In the high school romance/ magic girls anime this seems to happen a lot:
A shy guy likes girl quiet A but assertive girl B gets in his face, demands attention and
declares them bf and gf. After that quiet girl A feels like she can't intrude upon
the relationship so they all dance around each other for ever.

I think it may also be intended to teach the audience to speak up for themselves.
A lot of the time the shows seem to work up to the point where the shy characters
get advice and find courage to speak up about their true emotions.

In real life I'm not sure what I'd do. I grew up with keeping (family) obligations as an
important duty that needs to be respected. Sometimes that carries over into other aspects
of my life but not always.

It would depend on the situation. If someone does something nice for me and
they asked me to dinner I probably would go. But I would never get physical with a person
just out of obligation. After all there is also an obligation to yourself to protect your own (physical)
integrity as much as possible.

Depends, I guess.

You don't really know what someone is like till...well you get to know them. So, if they were a complete stranger and not giving off a complete creepy and weird aura, I would give it a shot.

On the other hand, If it is someone I know well or well enough to know I don't like them in any sense of the word, then most likely I would say no while walking away at a quick stride.

No.

On a related note, I hate the idea that if someone is 'nice' to you while persuing you romantically you're obligated to 'give them a chance' even if you aren't interested. No one owes you anything.
