One suggestion that’s been sitting in my suggestion box (please put things in it!) for a while has been to write an entry about relationships. For quite a while, I just left it, because, well, I didn’t really know what exactly I should write about it. But after talking about the subject with a friend of mine the other day, and thinking about it since, I decided that this could be a ‘bloggable’ subject. By relationships, I think I should mention before I continue, that I mean romantic relationships.
    My friend has quite a good point against the idea: most probably people would want to treat their friends equally, so why put somebody above everybody else? And I do believe this is a good point, it would be unfair to suddenly treat one person better than you treat everybody else. But at the same time, I do partially disagree. What if somebody does lots of nice things to you? Then it would be a little unfair of you not to return the favour. Well, that is assuming they’re not some person who does things for you even if you tell them not too.
    Furthermore, while a lot of pleasure can be gained from friendships, the sad truth is that quite often, after a while, you’ll probably find yourself in a situation where you can’t see them regularly anymore. As such, you would have to develop new friendships and go through this cycle over and over again. In my opinion, it would be nice to have a permanent partner, somebody you always stay together with, thus ensuring some consistency in your life while everything else changes. Of course, this ‘partner’ would have to have been somebody with whom you had already cultivated a very good friendship with so that you can be sure you can trust them and every other important thing like that. I think it would be nice to have a long-lasting, close relationship with somebody.
    Of course, there’s one thing I have yet to mention, something which is often linked with relationships of this kind, especially when it involved consenting adults: sex. Now, quite frankly, sex isn’t something which is all that appealing to me. Should I ever get a partner like I described, I’d be quite happy for sex never to come up at all. However, this seems to be quite unlikely. If I did have a partner, and they wanted to have sex, I suppose I would for their sake. I’d see it as a favour to them. Plus it would be a crucial activity should children ever be considered.
    So those’re my views on relationships. I suppose this may have turned out to be the most personal blog entry on here. Ah well, I’m not particularly bothered by that! And remember, put more things in the suggestion box!
