    Everyone needs someone otherwise life would be pretty boring!

    Only some are lucky enough to find the one who cares more for them than they care for themselves (if that makes sense)

    Yep I agree.

    Yes. Being with someone is an experience that can't be emulated by anything else.
    I agree with you guys! It's nice to hear that most people still think that way

    The statement is not specific enough. What do you mean by it? Do you mean it in the sense of a monogamous relationship? Or do you mean it in the sense of literally 'anyone?' Or something else? I can't tell.

    Do you agree? Why/why not?
    If you were talking about relationships, I disagree completely. I am happiest on my own. I have no desire whatsoever to be in a relationship and I was SO relieved when my last one ended, despite having loved the guy. I find that being with someone feels horrible and it makes me feel quite depressed. That's just me though, but I still don't think we NEED somebody.

    If you were talking about somebody in general, I do think it's good to have two or three people in your life that you can rely on, though some people can get along just fine completely alone.

    In that case, no, I don't agree. There are some people, such as myself, who are quite happy being single for the rest of our lives. I would've agreed if you meant it in the sense of anyone at all because humans are, after all, social animals. Some human contact would be needed in that case. But not everyone needs a romantic relationship, no.

    Too many hopeless romantics on this thread. I personally don't see the appeal of a relationship given that I can never be as relaxed around other people as when I'm alone. Socialising is pretty much a chore to me and I usually don't feel like working when I come back home from a day outside because of the exhaustion.
