If you can make it work then it will make you happy, same with everything else. Just don't start compromising to make it happen because it doesn't work like that.

I dunno. For a long time, I was happy being single. But now, I think I'd like a relationship.

I mean i don't mind either way anymore i suppose. If i find the one who wants to be with me then it'll happen. If not it won't.

I don't particularly think that you absolutely need to have an intimate relationship with someone in order to lead a happy life, but i definitely feel like you need a few close relationships with friends to. Despite what a lot of people say, i don't really think anybody is comfortable with the idea of being lonely forever. Everyone needs someone that they can talk to, and not even necessarily relate to, but a person who is willing to accept them for who they are no matter what. I've got myself a number of acquaintances that I spend time with but i've got a small select group of friends who i can genuinely feel 100% at ease around, share some of my thoughts with and see how they feel about something that i'm not sure about. sometimes we just have so many doubts and so many questions that fill our mind and its so difficult for us to make sense of any of it, and a good friend will always be willing to listen to you and even give you advice.

You don't need to be in a "relationship" to be happy.That's just a huge fallacy perpetrated by those that desperately want to sanctify their own lifestyle situations.

I'm sick and tired of people who think that life is all about having a relationship, what about friends

I was unhealthily codependent in my previous relationship, but after having experienced true love with my current SO, I understand why it's so important to love myself and to value my independence. I think that's the key to a happy life: finding real and true love, in whatever shape or form, to help you realize yourself.

I don't think being in a relationship will guarentee a happy life.
I don't like the idea of that.
I don't really even like/care about relationships, honestly. Too much to deal with. When im single, i feel more free lol. But I know, I'm gonna have to be in one in the distant future.
Kinda ironic for me to say so since I'm in one lol
Only because my bf respects my space, privacy, hanging out with friends, and doesn't require to have most of my attention on him.

I don't think it's needed, at least I know I don't but at some time we reach a certain age where I think most wish they had someone, or at least someone around them(friends, family..) that may provide them with more meaning other than the typical "more money, fancy stuff" mindset you have when you are younger. I think there are many 60+ year old people that are feeling depressed because they don't have anyone to be with. But it's all individual.

My CR BFF's words of wisdom... everyone can learn from him <3

Sure. But dont be the old person who never married or had kids and has 50 cats. Because let's face it. That's pretty weird no matter how you slice it.


It's fine to do it in your younger days, but eventually you need to get something going. It may sound harsh but it's a bit too prevalent nowadays.

I think its human nature to want a partner to spend your life with, it doesn't necessarily have to be a romantic partner but we all need someone in our lives to love, support and listen to us. I personally have a boyfriend of four years, hes more than a boyfriend those, he's my best friend and I hold him closer to my heart than anything.
