If you think you can have a meaningful relationship without sex....you are kidding yourself...or are so young you don't know better. NEWS FLASH...women want sex as much, or more, than guys do. When a guy finally figures that out.....the world becomes a better place. So....I stand by my comments. Getting laid is GOOD for you. If we weren't supposed to have lots of sex.....we would go into heat once a year like a dog. As for meaningful relationships.....they are great......but take months/years to develop.....and a strong physical relationship goes a long way towards developing one. Look, no offense intended, but it is usually guys that couldn't get laid in a whorehouse with a fistful of hundreds, that want meaningful relationships.
Dude, you completely misunderstood my post. No one ever said to have relationships without sex, god no. Hell, try to get it as often and for as long as possible; in the relationship. And regarding ‘getting over her’ well, its happened to me before and will happen again, but I hardly sit down with ice cream and watch TV…I’m not a girl (in case ‘Jon’ didn’t give it away before). I would advocate going out, not staying in, but also as others have stated not meaningless sex either. Also, I didn’t specify length of my view of a ‘meaningful relationship’, which is well, about 2-3 months, tops. What I am saying is going out fucking everything that moves when on the rebound, or even if you’re not, is not my idea of a good time, because of the risks involved. I’m not saying that my dick up some chicks ass is not a good time, of course it is! However, a few hours is of fun is hardly worth a lifetime of moments of displeasure. Out of curiosity, have you known someone that died of AIDS? I look it at as different strokes for different folks: some people like to go to clubs everyday of the week and dance the night away, while others like house parties. They can be quite different from one another, but both can lead to fun, and sex. Jon. And oh god, whorehouses, I got dragged to this one in St. Martin and…on further thought, I’ll just yadda, yadda, yadda, and this is why I don’t like whorehouses (that and why pay for something that I can get for free?) (I think the moderators are going to clean m y post for me…call it a gut feeling)
