    This rant is kind of inspired by this thread - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1425795 and others I've seen recently.

    What ever happened to relationships, at Univerisity, with me and my mates and even on the threads on TSR (mainly the ***** PUA ones), I notice that people (men and women) seem set on having one night stands or going out and getting laid, yet few people are interested in having a relationship with a partner.
    Maybe I'm just old (I'm 19) and boring but, I prefer having sex with a girl I'm going out with to One Night Stands. Also, it seems that the majority of people in relationships actually started from one night stands.

    So what do you peeps prefer, getting laid or actual relationships? Obviously I'm generalising but, it seems like there's been a shift in culture over the past few years (which has happened) especially with sexual relationships.

    I know I would rather have the stable relationship im with my beautiful gf that gives me sex on tap rather than to have to go out everynight and having meaningless one night stands hunting for pussy as some of the cretins on this forum call it

    Now I prefer sex in a relationship, but casual sex has worked well for me in the past. It just depends what you are looking for, have time for and prefer at that specific point in your life.

    Exactly what I was thinking, yet there are many peeps both on and off this forum who hunt for pussy or go out for ****

    I sorta feel a bit too young for a relationship, I've just sort of come out of a 1.5 year one and while the honeymoon period was amazing and perfect, when it became something like marriage I just felt like I was... missing out.

    I'm not a one-night-stand kinda girl, one of my favourite things about sex is the buildup of tension beforehand My favourite sex is early-days sex - whether early days of a relationship, or someone you've been friends with for ages, or someone you're just seeing - where everything's a novelty and you can't get enough of each other.

    I totally understand. Meanwhile the chase and the novelty of a one night stand is appealing, surely sex with someone that knows exactly how to please you in the way you like it whenever you want it, is even more so?

    People analyse this sort of thing for far more than it's worth...
    Just do what you feel like doing, and what you feel is right.

    At the end of the day it doesn't matter all that much.

    Now I agree with you in the personal case as I think sex in a relationship is vastly more fulfilling, but I don't think that means I need to get angry at everyone who believes something different and wants sex more casually.

    Sex in a relationship is typically much better (and indeed the majority of people who might be deemed 'good in bed' have probably had at least one long-term partner), but I certainly wouldn't begrudge others an alternative preference.

    Of course people would prefer sex in a relationship, that's a given. But IMO if you're not in a relationship, there's nothing wrong with having a ONS or whatever if you want sex.
