Let me put this in context: I learned firsthand how going the physical route affected my relationships.
Once I kissed the guy, it became harder to just talk anytime we met.If this is true, then it explains why attraction is often temporary and not a good indicator of a lasting commitment.While dating gives room for intimacy, we notice that the world places more emphasis on physical intimacy as a test for compatibility.For some, dating is seen as an antidote to loneliness and shame.We are made to believe that to belong, we must be in a relationship.For you are not to be: One thing the world is very fuzzy about is the why of dating.
