The first thing I think of when someone mentions anything related to relationships is extremely spicy food. It's exciting and awesome when you first eat it, but it eventually just becomes a fiery stream of lava in the morning. And then the burning sensation in the asshole sticks with you for a couple of days while your friends wear gas masks before going into the bathroom.
I mean, I can't say relationships are bad because they have a lot of perks, but being in college, I can't picture myself sticking with one girl long term..that is, that breaking up is inevitable. And with every break up, there is always a group of friends that gets split.
People call me a wuss cause I don't ask anyone out and I generally tend to avoid relationships. The reason for this is because I value friendships over my relationships. I don't think the perks of relationships are worth more than several good friends. And through high school, I had to carefully select people to hangout with because of their past relationship issues. I hated dealing with that, and I don't want to do that to other people.
Just as an example...One of my really close chick friends wanted to drink at my place one day, but her ex lives here too. They were on bad terms at the time, and we couldn't drink at her place cause her roommate hates liquor and had friends over. I had to kick my own roommate out just so the awkwardness wouldn't overwhelm the room.
I still can't really forgive myself for doing that...but he said he was cool about it and left willingly. But if I didn't kick him out, what then? He locks himself in his room while I throw a party and drink with his ex and her friends?
Then again, I've never been in a real relationship before, so I wouldn't know if the grass is greener on the other side. All I know, is that there's plenty of grass for me on the side I'm on right now, and that people who come back from the other side seem to lose more than what they gained by going over in the first place.
Plus, liquor and drunk girls gives me what I can't get from normal friends.
And I really hate dealing with drama.
Is it worth the risk?
