    The OP makes it sound like relationships have only just died out as it were.
    In the 70's and 80's it was exactly the same. My dad has told me some classic stories about some 17 year old girl who got pregnant. Classic village bike case. It has always been this way.

    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.

    How much can you deadlift?

    You're right, sex on tap tbh.

    I'd much prefer a relationship, but I'm not going to turn down casual sex if that's the only offer on the table. But I'm unlikely to have any offer on the table any time soon.

    Is that really true? I don't see many people on here getting regular one night stands or pulling regularly. All I see is people who are insecure and too scared to talk to the opposite sex, or people who are having other dating/relationship problems.

    And most men between 18 and 30 deep down desire sex with a variety of females. It's the way we're wired. Many of the guys in this age range who get into monogamous relationships do so because they lack the skill or confidence to pull different women consistently, so they latch onto the first girl who likes them. Deep down, though, they still desire multiple partners.

    So what do you peeps prefer, getting laid or actual relationships?
    What do you mean by 'actual relationships'? I presume you mean 'monogamous relationship'? But there are other types of relationships too. I categorize all relationships into one of the following categories:-

    Long term or short term?

    Monogamous or non-monogamous?

    So, as you can see, there are 4 possible types of relationship that a man and woman can have (not including platonic friendships). You need to be more specific when you use the term 'actual relationship'.

    For a relationship to be regarded as an 'actual relationship', it has to be one based on honesty, trust and respect as the foundation between two people who enjoy sharing each others' company, both sexually and non-sexually. As long as these conditions are fulfilled, then it can be considered an 'actual relationship' and it doesn't matter if it's long-term or short-term, monogamous or non-monogamous.

    For me, I prefer non-monogamous relationships. They can be either long-term or short-term, as long as they are non-monogamous. I don't like monogamous relationships, but fair play to anyone who does.

    You sound like you're on your high horse looking down on people who don't want monogamous relationships, but it's 2010 now and people are liberated and free to make the choices that best suit them.

    I know I'd much rather be in a relationship, but the male student mentality I've experience so far is "find some average girl, shag her, never speak to her again".

    What kind of ******** answer is this?

    Oh, it's 2010 now, I guess sex with animals and children are OK then? :hmmm: Please don't give me the "they can't give consent" argument.

    OP, I totally get what you mean. It's just wholly disappointing.

    There's a lack of gentleman nowadays. I think the world would be a better place if we all reverted back to traditional values.

    Cheap ***** are hardly worth the effort a lot of the time, rarely are they as fun or exciting as with a partner. Not like I really care what other people want to do, I just can't understand the appeal.

    This is a fairly blatant straw-man argument.

    If people are not interested in being monogamous, so what. There's nothing intrinsically superior about it.

    "Traditional values" is a rather nebulous grass-greener-on-the-other-side sort of label TBH. What exactly is it that you're referring to?

    Relationships are supposed to be monogamous, i.e. devote yourself to one partner at any one time whether this may be a casual relationship or a marriage. God forbid if there are people who support non-monogamous marriages.

    Traditional values: first and foremost - monogamous. Sex only in a long-term relationship (not any of this ******** ONSs), one marriage only, no divorce, no cheating etc.

    Essentially common sense.

    If you want your relationship and your partner to be like that, that is perfectly fine.

    Other people are free to make their own choices and judgements however.

    "Common sense" seems to be defined as what the user thinks is a good idea :roll:

    So I'm guessing you're OK with the idea of let's say, me ******* a 5 year old kid or a goat, right?

    After all, it's fine for me. :dunce:

    Some people just have no standards when it comes to relationships.
