Hard to believe this is Part 7 now.
My focus in the previous installments?
All about how Romantic Friendships fare.
With an emphasis on relationships.
Since that’s the case?
We’re due for a different kind of size up.
This time the article we’ll compare Romantic Friendships to?
It’s called Stay Single Until You Are Appreciated.
The author of this piece faces the usual cross-examinations of why people like being single. They thought about it and decided there are 6 reasons why they do.
“Doing What You Want When You Want.”
That registered first on the checklist.
Since you don’t live with your partners, your schedule is your own.
The next item on the agenda is “Refusing To Settle” for anything. “Whether it’s another human being or a career,” you just refuse to “settle in any way.”
Romantic Friendships actually beat this one.
Your partner doesn’t need to meet any standard.
You can connect with each partner for what you value in them.
You don’t have to “wait” for anyone who is totally “right for you.”
“Finding A Good Match Is Difficult” is really very similar. Because you don’t live together, your partner’s little quirks remain endearing. You’re only with them because you value them and they value you.
“Finances” also aren’t a problem.
With Romantic Friendships you never blend them.
“You Don’t Want To Deal With Someone Else’s Problems?”
Not a problem!
They do them and you do you!
“You’re Happy With Your Life The Way It Is” is really also a no brainer. The central point of Romantic Friendships is, you get to enjoy love without losing your independence.
So whether you’re talking relationships?
Or you’re talking about being single?
With Romantic Friendships?
You really can have your cake and eat it too!
What do you think? Is there any way at all that Romantic Friendships fail to be superior, or is it time to embrace the revolution and get with the plan?
