I have been thinking about relationships and such a lot lately. The need for relationships remains as it ever was. I am human after all. For me as I get older the need to be with someone has decreased. I think it has anyway. I do have lived with M since 1998 so who’s to say that this doesn’t provide me with whatever companionship needs I have. I am comfortable as is. Relationships have always proved themselves to be more a pain in the ass than anything else. The sex isn’t worth it I can have sex pretty much anytime I chose. It really does boil down to the companionship I think at least for me it does. I know some people that its all about the sex but then these folks run from relationship to relationship as soon as the sex becomes boring. The thing I’ve noticed about these folks also, is it seems the sex just doesn’t quite scratch the itch they think it will. This is why I think its companionship that people are looking for in the end. Companionship cannot be rushed, its the beautiful flower that only blooms with age and never wilts. It is composed of time and struggle of wins and losses together with one another. It is the ribbon of history that two people weave with one another. I value my friendships deeply because I see them in this light. I value my familial relationships for the same reasons.
