I am convinced that most people in long-term relationships are secretly miserable. Sure, it's nice to have a partner to cuddle with, but relationships can be terribly inconvenient.
Let's face it; everyone flirts sometimes, whether they are single or not. Flirting is usually innocent in nature, but it could nonetheless lead to a awkward situation if a single person ends up developing feelings for someone who is romantically involved.
Add an insecure partner to the mix and this awkward situation could quickly turn into a terrible confrontation.
Its fun to send flirty texts back and forth, but imagine how much time typical couples spend on their phones. Alot of people get anxious without constant communication, so those texts and phone calls might add up to a loss of several hours per day. Of course you could find a partner who is more independent but finding such a person could be a difficult task.
Have you ever been through a break up so emotionally devastating that you couldn't function normally for weeks or months afterwards? Love is a chaotic force that can be both beautiful and devastating. Passionate feelings cannot and should not be silenced but never let a person become the single subject of your thoughts, because few relationships are destined for eternal success.
