I feel sex is one of the most if not "the" most important aspect of a relationship. If you dont turn me on enough then I get bored and then I cheat on you and things get messy after that. Ive been told I have the personality of a dude lol. You know what I call a relationship with bad or awkward sex-(relation-shit!) So I agree with you serious relationships are awesome but only if the sex is equally as awesome.
I think that's what I'm "stuck" in right now. She's beautiful so every guy's dream no-strings-attached-sex partner/situation is a little bit of a pain in the ass for me.
Don't get me wrong,there's nothing bad about the scenario -It's just that even though I don't look like it I am getting older.That means you start looking for something with more substance & stability behind it.
I know that may sound boring to most,but the great sex without some type of intellectual and / or emotional connectivity developing somewhere along the lines doesn't appeal to me very much these days (well,not for very long anyway).Now if I was in my early 20's again (like she is) it'd be a whole different story all together!
I guess I'll just have to take the good with the "bad" for now & roll with the punches.It is ,after all better than nothing.
