it seems to me that relationships between people are ending sooner and sooner every time and each time they end they're just getting nastier and nastier. people start cheating and sleeping around more nowadays and its actually really hard to find a decent partner. i cant stand it any more it just makes me wonder is love really worth it? is it worth all the heart break and depression that comes with it? why must there be fairy tales where its put out so easily for you where prince charming shall just come and save you. if only life was that simple. why do we even want or need love?

I agree wid u that ppl r breaking up sooner n sooner and getting nastier n nastier.... U know...u cant really blame just one person for it...as i see it the one problem nowadays is ppl want things to go solely their way...the concept of understanding-compromise are for the books....every relation hits a rough patch after a few months in the relation...at this point in time rather than working out the differences...ppl r busy seeing how he is not compatible with me and how happy i will without the other person..and the other person doesnt love me....its all just ME ME ME I I I.... I think if v really need to make things work...v need to work wid each other...to make the relation work...n not head for the first exit when d going starts getting a lil rough... no m just not preaching...i m in a committed relation since past many months....and even my relation went thru a rough patch...even i got thoughts to take the first exit...but its just that i sincerely love him a lot and even he loves me a lot...that v cudnt stay from each other for long...n always used to make up after a fight and try to mend our ways...now things r better and smoother than they were earlier... Relations need working...u wont get it served all perfect on a silver platter... And like i always say.... everything worth having in this life comes with a price tag if u think its worth it then pay the price in full!!!

Prince charming? I don't think I have one. I think my first love was my best and most exciting love. I had a lot of fun and my hopes were like maybe would happen. I wanted to marry him and have children but that dream went away. Then I married though it was forever but learned nothing is forever. I am happy with my boyfriend but he is not everything in my life.

you should never make anyone your everything. in my opinion, that's when troubles start to come.

That's true. One time when i saw a girl holding hands with her boyfriend, she was staring me for a while then crossed the street when the light was green. I blame america for being a very libral country?

haha are you sure she was staring at you then? but i have been in the same situation as you before and its tough when you don't know whether you should pursue it.
