I've asked that myself many a time. It's called a cost benefit analysis, and very few girls I meet make the grade, sadly.

That's because most girls have too high expectations. There is no Prince Charming...

I'd say their expectations lean more in the direction of a car, ability to purchase alcohol and a finely honed ability to be very, very stupid with the aforementioned. At least in my neighborhood...but I digress. My point is, look very hard before you leap, because you might not like where you land.

I wish humans had evolved sufficiently that we no longer had emotions, just logic. Or even better, that we could transfer our minds into robot bodies. Then we would be stronger, faster, have more computing power, no need for food or sleep, and best of all, no need for several emotions, especially love. I hate emotions.

Why do you guys treat a relationship as some kind of deal that you're looking to get something out of? If that's what you're looking for then your heart is not in the right place and any relationship you treat with that perspective will VERY likely not work out and you'll spend the next month after breakup thinking "relationships suck, they're not worth it, what good are they anyway, blah blah blah". I'm sorry but if you're comparing a relationship to its aftereffects, that just means you're expecting to breakup, why would you hold that in your thoughts going into a relationship? And don't give me the "being realistic" crap, if you want a relationship to work and be great, you can, you just need to work for it and be willing to make compromises, if your relationship fails, there's not much else out there to blame except for yourself (with exceptions).

^a discussion is an argument when two opposing opinions are provided with a party supporting either side. It doesn't have to be a negative argument but disputing forum rules is not an option.

I know a relationship can work, but it can also fail. Is it worth the risk that it could fail?

Well call me an asshole SB, but I DO expect something out of a relationship. Respect, understanding, maturity and fun to being with. And if that makes my breakup with someone my fault, well then I'll happily bear the blame, thanks very much. And being realistic is not crap. Maybe things work differently where you are, but in my humble experience, most college relationships are measured in months. And I don't mind working for a relationship, but that's a two way street as well. If they won't reciprocate, then my choice is clear.

I wasn't referring to those kind of experiences, of course we all want and get respect, understanding, maturity etc... out of relationships, but those are things that benefit both people. Seeing as there are both men and women on this board, I was referring to both, but obviously mainly to the men here. Breakups are natural and it's fine, of course there are reasons for it and such but I really don't think that it's okay to be constantly complaining about not wanting to get into a relationship just because you dread what's going to happen when it ends. You have to look at what's infront of you before you look at what's ahead.

How woud you know what a relationship is going to be like until you get into it? Each is unique and each has its own challenges and pleasures. You need to work through those challenges and learn the lessons that are taught in those relationships rather than avoiding them as a whole just so you don't have to suffer a bit if and when the relationship is over.

Further down the road, in the future... call it whatever you want. I think you get my meaning. I'm sorry if my choice of words isn't so clear but I didn't think that was something to get hung up about.

Um as for the relationship bit...well, most of it's already been said. It's part of life and such but I doubt if there are any stronger emotions that we expose ourselves to in a relationship than at any other time in our lives...that I do know. mellow.gif

I would think that's an inherent part of going into a relationship and something that grows stronger as you continue one. If they didn't love you back, would you be going into the relationship in the first place?

I was referring to personal gains and benefits that you want to get and the relationship is just a tool to attain those things.
