What’s good about a relationship?

Okay, just a disclaimer: I’m not in any way discouraging the prospect of relationships. I’m just curious as to what you all think about them.

Personally, I’ve always been hesitant about them, because the fact is that, when you start a relationship, you’re either serious or you’re not. Either you eventually get married, or you break up. Many people who engage in relationships are too young to consider marriage yet, or are simply searching for a casual relationship. But I just don’t see the point in it – if you know it’s going to be such a short-lived thing, why engage in it knowing it’ll end in a breakup anyway?

I know it sounds like I’m being cynical, but I’m honestly curious. Perhaps I shouldn’t be defining relationships as “labels”, as such, anyway, because what matters in a relationship are the feelings.

Anyway, thanks for reading through all my rambling. Does anybody have any opinions to share on this topic – is it really worthwhile?

    It’s life experience. You learn from it and enjoy from it. It’s a little like skydiving, not everyone is into it, but would everyone call it pointless? No!

    But if you aren’t doing anything in life to learn and grow from then you aren’t really living.
