Are they needed to lead a happy life? No, but you may be better off pretending to be in one.

If I decide to remain single for the rest of my life, I'm going to pretend I'm in a long-distance relationship with a career woman who's currently working overseas. That way I can fend off hungry women without getting hurt.

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.

Some people have them, some people don't. What's your peoples opinions on them and are they needed to have a happy life?


Hmm, we'll I'll be 50 this year so my point of view is very biased. Yes, it is. My friends who are single and have never been married are slowly fading as people, it's almost as if they have no purpose....nothing to live for? It's weird they are either trying to party it up or withdraw. Either way it's kind of sad. I know my life would be nothing without my wife. She drove me to finishing my chemistry degree. She told me to become an electrical engineer when I expressed interest in it. She told me that she would leave me if I didn't get my shit straight, it saved my life. Yes I need Hiroko, and I wouldn't be here with the power, position or life I have without her. If you are in you 20s and you don't think relationships are worth it, then prepare to slowly fade or disintegrate when you pass 40. Your friends are not going to be enough to keep you together, they'll be too busy keeping their partner and family together. Don't waste your youth, now's the time to find a lifelong partner. My single buddies who aren't are some pathetic men and women (and they are doctors, teachers, lawyers and scientists).

I think if you are happy w/ yourself & love yourself,
you'll attract good ppl.
But don't think you have to have someone, ultimately it's you.

Everyone, have a nice life.

it isn't necessary, but it is comforting from time to time. for a while I was single after being in an intense relationship that ended badly...it took me a while to start dating again, but now it's fine. I've been with my boyfriend for over 3 years and we've been supporting each other in a lot of life decisions we have to make.

and no, not all relationships have to intimate. I see a lot of older people just living together because it makes them comfortable. and sometimes it good to have a friendship relationship when times are bad. I guess it starts to annoy people when they are obsessed and start making out in public and have no shame when they grab each other.

Totally agree sometimes being around too much PDA can be annoying especially when your single! Trying not to be bitter

They are nice, but not absolutely necessary.

To be happy in life you need to be happy with yourself.
even if you have someone that's happy with you, you're still there and you need to please both parties.

Only one relationship is better though
Posted 6/23/15
Most of us that don't have one yet might would like one someday. Highly idealistically envisioned, then I think of cruel persons and it becomes harder to trust and take initiative. Such people in the world make it take longer to find the right someone .

honestly when I see too much PDA it makes me a bit uncomfortable. I'm more of a reserve person. I think it took about 2 months for me to let my boyfriend hold my hand in public lol. Anyways, yeah, not really sure about the over PDA shit, especially when there's kids around, very awkward.

I was with my son at a Mall and he is at the age of curiosity about girls and relationships still too young. He was watching a couple interact until I said hey don't stare. We get in car and he says do I have to open my mouth to kiss someone I was like whattttttttttttt no you don't holding hands is fine

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



Its human nature to WANT to spend your life with someone, a relationship is just a stronger bond, like a friend can stop being your friend whenever and or anything but the person you're with/married to is supposed to care about you enough to work with you to fix the problem. there is also a time were you'll be older and knowing that there is someone that will always be there with you is a relief, you don;t ever have to be lonely. I personally don't plan on ever reaching that age so i'm fine.


Life is like being stuff in a building with a bunch of zombies. and a relationship would be a gun, only its a gun that spins around on your finger. The gun helps you deal with the stuff the zombies/life throws at you but I feel like at any time that gun/relationship can end up hurting you really badly....... so i'd rather just punch the zombies

Do what thou wilt. You dont want a relationship dont have one, if you do, have one! Simple as that.
