Do you think you are in a real relationship?

Have you ever thought that your just having a relationship because of some reasons but not really in love with that person? For example, you just want a person who cares for you, talk to you always, etc... but you or the other person is not in love and staying until the real thing comes?

I am definitely in a real relationship. I was married and that did not work out. This time I know for a fact that mu girl loves me and I love her.

I know that i am in a real relationship, as we have been together 17 years now and with all the ups and downs that we have had we are still both in love.We have 6 children, so it is really hard for us to get time together, but when we do we make the most of the time we have on our own together.

So,it;s like having friendship. Love comes in different forms and depends on each understanding. Sometimes love doesn't need any realization or physical contact. Caring, attention is one way of showing love anyway.

I would know if I am in a real relationship if I can see that the relationship is progressing or is going somewhere. I also think it is not fair to stay in a relationship if you don't really love the person. You mean, you would stay just because the other person cares for you? And that you are just waiting for the right one to come? (I mean general, I don't mean you as in you ) What if the right one comes and you are still in a relationship, does that mean you will dump your current boyfriend? That is not nice Nobody should be ever allowed to do that.

I've been in two relationships that felt very much like what you have described there. At first of course I believed I was truly in love with them, but within a short amount of time it became clear that wasn't what I was feeling. It turned out both were based on lust and the relationships faded out in no time. I won't say I stayed with them knowing all the while I wasn't in love with them, as at that time I seriously thought I was. Only time will really tell when it comes to things like that though. I'm currently in a wonderful relationship that only blossoms further every single day and we're happily engaged! this one is for real, he's my best friend and I've never felt anything like this before.

i don't think that i am in a relationship just because my needs not for love.in my life i came in a relationship very late because i don't want anything from anyone.i care myself ,and the most important thing is that i am not talkative person.i just do my work nothing else and did not expect from anybody. but when i met with her then i realize that i love her so much.she is only for me.so i want to tell you that i am in real relationship not in that type about which you are discussing.and the same things apply on my partner also.and for this reason we have in relationship from 3 year and we planning for marriage.
