BUT RLY. WHAT'S THE POINT OF RELATIONSHIPS?

So, this thing happened when I went to therapy after my last relationship... All my preconceived notions about why relationships matter kind of got decimated, and I still don't really have an answer, which has made dating hard. Like too hard. So, what's the point of relationships to you?
  1. Heal me, List App.
  2. Discovering the term aromantic really helped put this to rest for me haha

  5. In my experience there are two reasons. For physical intimacy and/ or for emotional support. Both of which can be found through other types of relationships ( friendship, hook ups) but some people prefer to find that one person who can provide it all. This can be very difficult as we all know. I guess It's up to you to decide if it's worth it.

  6. I think relationships are only worth it if they enrich your life. You don't need anyone to complete you; you're perfect in yourself. Victor constantly pushes me to be a better person just by being himself in our relationship, and the harder times do that too. Also he makes good food. And I get a lot of emotional sustenance from friends too.

  7. They're worthwhile when they open up your world instead of shrinking it.
