Relationships

Postby Mikland » Thu Nov 22, 2012 7:48 pm

Imagine if you had two rather extreme options:

1. You will find a girl/guy who you absolutely love. You will marry them, have kids with them, and be with them for the rest of your life. But it will be only them that you ever have sex, with-make out with ever again. No other girls/guys like you in that way ever again, so cheating is impossible and divorce means you will be forever alone. Also, after the first few night of marriage, they will only have sex with you once in a blue moon.

2. You become a major playboy/really hot girl. You party all the time and get to sleep with any and all of the hottest girls/guys you want. However, you never really fall so much in love with any of these girls/guys that you marry them. You also have some kind of amazing luck that not only do you not have accidental children, you are also immune to STDs.

Which do you choose?

Personally, I like option 2 better, as I have seen what marriage becomes, and I hate kids.

I would choose the first option. Personal opinion, of course. I prefer to know I will be with a loving partner for the rest of my life than the prospect of having sex with different people.

Ignoring the fact that you have biased the question towards option two...

Neither, because both of them sound absolutly ridiculous.

The fact that they are ridiculously extreme is the point. Just tell me, what you would prefer.

Why does NSG make me feel more and more like I should have taken the blue pill?
Venicilian: wow. Jesus hung around with everyone. boys, girls, rich, poor(mostly), sick, healthy, etc. in fact, i bet he even went up to gay people and tried to heal them so they would be straight.
The Parkus Empire: Being serious on NSG is like wearing a suit to a nude beach.
New Kereptica: Since power is changed energy over time, an increase in power would mean, in this case, an increase in energy. As energy is equivalent to mass and the density of the government is static, the volume of the government must increase.

Again. Niether. I don't want the 'required' marriage, but I do not want to sleep around either.

Were those the only two options, I would choose wandering hemetic celibacy. I would despise human contact because it would be relativly pointless if I could not strive for and achieve a happy medium.

So you can have sex with people of the same sex, if you're into that, then.

Also, a poll would be a good option (I'd suggest adding more than 2 or 3 options, though...)

So you can have sex with people of the same sex, if you're into that, then.


All the people around you (aside from your spouse, if your gay. And if your state doesnt allow gay marriage, imagine that hypothetically, it does) seem to be straight.
