Sometimes I wonder why do we even bother getting into relationships. We form perfectly fine friendships with the opposite sex, we hang out every other day, we feel comfortable and we use each other as a shoulder to cry on, a ear to listen to our grieves and pet peeves.
Sometimes we feel a spark and we think, since we manage to get along so well, we might as well try taking it a step further. And we do live happily after, well for a few years that is….
Sooner or later, something happen, the sparks lessen, familiarity breeds contempt, the feelings fade and there might be someone better.
And we part.
What happens after that?
Do we ever return to be the same friendship we had, years ago? We hardly do. The friendship is lost, never to return again. We have lost a friend that we had dear to me. Seriously why bother?
Why do we hurt ourselves over and over again? Why bother getting into relationships when 90% of the time, it’s doomed to fail? Why risk a perfectly good friendship in hope of some “happily ever after” that will hardly happen?
Why do we try? Why bother? I rather have a best friend than a boyfriend who may turn into an ex boyfriend.
