I’ve been reading a lot of threads on other message boards, and I am honestly scared. Why am I scared? I don’t understand the point of relationships if people just leave because of the person having difficulty functioning normally in society. To me, it seems that relationships are just business transactions where people are just with the other person with the false assumption that the person whom they are with will always be a high functioning member of society.
What about all the “I love you’s” that are communicated in relationships. What does that even mean if people will just leave during harsh times? Are people that fickle and selfish that they will just leave someone when that person is having difficulty?
If you were with someone who could no longer be a high functioning member of society for whatever reason, would you just leave them?
What if something better came along? I’ve read countless stories where people decided to ditch their SO for someone else because the person was a better catch.
