Have you ever been in a relationship wherein LOVE is NOT INVOLVED?

Aside from the fact that you have been cheated and a fling. Have you been in a relationship that LOVE was not really involved in the sense that you know you don't love that person but still you have chosen him/her to become your partner? For example you just want to have relationship with that person just because he is rich. Or you want to have relationship with a girl just because she is sexy and she has her hot body. Or it is because it was arranged by your parents to have relationship between you and the son/daughter of their business partner.

I havent and I think you would have to be a really cruel person to be with someone because of something other than love. I also think that eventually you will gain some kind of feelings for the person. Unless you are down right cold. I dont think I could be with someone because they are rich or just because they are hot, first because i wouldnt want someone to be with me for the wrong reasons and secondly because I cant be around someone that i didnt have some type of feelings for.

Isn't that pretty-much how all relationships start? I mean, I "love" everybody (although I'll only allow a certain type of person into my 'inner sanctum'); so a 'relationship' is simply 'being there for me fairly-regularly.' And then, the kind of love you "fall into together" develops out of that one thing you do together well

I once had this kind of ridiculous relationship in high school. that time, I dated a girl just because all my best friends already had girlfriends, leaving me alone as a single. I was ashamed in this condition and just wanted to prove to them that I could get a girlfriend. we broke up in the next 6 months. clearly because she saw I did not really love her. now I will think three times to do it again. relationship without love is like having a pie with nothing inside.

As far as my side of it goes, I have always entered a relationship with care and love for the other person. However, that is not always the case when you consider their thoughts and feelings on it. Have you ever been in a relationship where you thought the love was mutual, but later find out that the person only used you to make something easier in their life, or to attain something they couldn't get without you? Yeah, that's quite a shocker. Try being married to someone who only married you to get into your country. That sucks. Thanks!

Não. Havia sempre aquele romance no ar entre mim e o meu par :) Não gosto desse tipo de relações. Acho muito mau e de todas as vezes, uma pessoa sai sempre magoada

I'm not into relationship anymore but i do have friend with benefit. I chosen that option because i can't afford to get into relationship and i do have my physical needs as well. I have friend who is not rich and is equally in stress of relationship in life, so we have each other as friend with benefits. I know i should settle with kids and husband but i don't see that happen unless i get out of workload.

# well ,for me ,what the relationship is going on now --with love involved . i think it could not lead a long life if dont love the person you associate with . but regarding the mature nature ,it could be understood . yeah ,there is much conditions out of our control ,we cannot make everything going on just as we wish . you married a person who is rich ,you dont need take much worried about money .Married a person who has a hot body ,you may catch much admiring face aroud your life .Married a person which arranged by family ,it could be a fantastic ending without living with love person ,could not image the meaning of "love " . In short ,depends on what person you are .we can choose our destiny .different choose make diffrent ending . nice day .

i have never been in any relationship but i have seen many of my friends involved in relationships for just time pass and just pretend to love each other for physical love.nowdays i feel its a common practice where many people get into relationship just for sake of getting with some one without really caring and knowing whether they love that person or not.this has really made people think whether true love still exists or not. regards. keep mylotting. :D

hello, Nope, I never been in a relationship which I dont really love. If this case will happened I dont really agree to it. I rather to be single forever because I know sooner I will be hurt. That is why I can say that I love all of my past boyfriends. I really mean that I sometimes fling but I love them.
