    I've noticed a number of threads about guys wanting to be in a relationship and I can certainly understand that. As humans, we all have that need to be with, share, and love someone because we are relational-seeking individuals But, rushing into a relationship because you don't want to be alone, are past your so-called prime, and so on are not good reasons to be in a relationship. Being in a relationship will not automatically make things 100% better nor make you happy for an eternity. It will certainly provide companionship, love, and a sexual outlet, but it will also bring new stresses, challenges, and emotions and feelings. The 'wrong' relationship can also bring you untold heartache and grief well after it has ended; take it from me!

    So, please don't rush into a relationship! Enjoy learning to love yourself for who YOU are; get to know who YOU are and what makes you tick; date around for however long you need to test the waters; be honest about what you want or would like; and don't be afraid communicate and to express your emotions and feelings.

    Although I'm only 25 it feels like I've been to hell and am slowly working my way back to Earth. And if I knew then what I know now...

    It is true, a wrong relationship hurts a lot rather than not have it at beginning. But it is difficult to get the test result, when and who is the one? Reasonable and emotional are not always compatible. In fact, "what if" is suitable for both situations.

    I love myself enough thank you very much! that said I am very much emotionally available, not desperate, but very much ready to love someone the way I already love myself for toooooooooo long! but seriously one main and very important factor in making a long lasting and loving relationship to work is by first working on a well structured and solid FRIENDSHIP before you can say to yourself you are ready for devotional one on one relationship with someone!


    NO FRIENDSHIP, NO RELATIONSHIP!!

    Very sound advice from the above posters.

    Note that the best advice I discovered was "don't give too much, too soon"

    Interpret that how you like.
