Akula saidits interesting how many times I hear young guys that want a ltr, I'm sorry but as far as I've seen no matter how mature someone is or thinks they are a ltr before 25-30 is doomed to fail. I can't count how many older guys I've met that got into a ltr young, stayed with that partner for 10+ years then when it ended they are back in the bars at 30-40-50 years old trying to be 20someting again. I'm sorry but to me your teens and twenties are the time to be a slut, get it out of your system then settle down. I know I'll take shit for this but I really don't care. Have a good weekend all!!
As someone who tried to be in a LTR at 19 (It lasted for 5 years) I completely agree with this advice. I was wanting stability and he was wanting a gymnast to fuck on a daily basis, so we served eachothers purpose perfectly, for awhile.
I think that your 20s (30s, 40s, etc.) should be about exploration and finding out what your "type" may be ... Of course, you'll only throw that out the window when you fall for someone who makes you wonder how you developed those preconcieved notions about your "ideal" mate. *grin*.
Besides, You can't make someone be in a relationship with you, regardless of how "ideal" they may be. It's hard not to get frustrated, but go with the flow, enjoy the ride (Pun intended), and let things work themselves out.
