    Why do special snowflakes think they are so good they are better than an institution which has stood thousands of years of history. Marriage works (in good societies) deal with it.

    Because that's how society works. That's how it has been working for centuries. You don't seem to have matured quite yet.

    Firstly your ideal of marriage is based on superficial romanticism, which is a modern phenomena, in the past (and in other countries) many people marry for compatibility reasons and to persistent against the struggles of daily life. as an institution it protects man against loneliness (as man is a social animal). What's stupid about that?

    Because they think that's whats expected of them, and they've been planning their crappy 'white wedding' day since they were 6.

    Outdated unreliable unsuccessful institution. However, as said before, society does run on it. But that doesn't equate to it being a good thing.

    They don't get attached to a random person. They usually get aroused by them, and then build the bond of friendship after. If you've known someone for three years and you spend a significant amount of time with them. They are not a random person.

    There are other ways to deal with loneliness other than marriage.

    Marriage is a waste of time. This is a fact.

    Nothing wrong with wanting company. Belonging is a fundamental human need.

    No. It's normal. If you are not emotionally attached to anyone in your life then that is a bit weird. Men and women were made to live together and to have children.

    One night stands? Tell me how you feel after those. It feels great during (sometimes depends how drunk I am/how good she is), after not so much.

    Friends? Not intimate enough

    Friends with benefits? There's no commitment.

    Nobody.

    No-one can ever hurt me as I don't get emotionally attached to anyone.
