Consider, for instance, the line of research that demonstrates that individuals who have alcoholic parents are more to become alcoholic themselves.While this may be true, it is also equally true that those who have alcoholic parents are also more likely to become teetotalers – in other words, people who don’t touch alcohol at all.There are other things we gain through romantic partnerships that aren’t (or were never intended to be) longterm, too.Namely, we learn more about what we want in a potential longterm partner (or even in a future short-term partner) and we hone our relationship skills (and learn what works, and what doesn’t).As for leaving unsatisfied, that is why expectations should be clear up front—if one partner expects sex in a relationship form the very beginning, and the other only expects to have sex if the relationship is serious, there will be discord.Problems like this are best solved through communication. Provided that both parties communicate and are open about expectations, I don’t see anything at all wrong with dating without the intent of getting married—and I can see some benefits. We benefit from friendships with others, and in our day and age (with our modern ideas about love) a partner is typically a good friend with whom one cohabitates—someone you can lean on for support, and make memories and share life experiences with.Note, too, that these things are not finite, like the goods in a grocery store.Making out with a current partner does not diminish one’s capacity to make out with a future partner.

"Margo finally let her boyfriend get to shortstop, but she used way too much lotion and he came on her shirt." "We finally reached home base last night!In other cases, a person may go from abusive relationship to abusive relationship, without the tools to discern the patterns.
