On love and the low birthrates

After reading that I the article above I started to think about what the people in the article above actually thought about long term relationships. This is my POW on love and sex.

If you ask me, I would rather have a long-term relationship than a one-sight-stand with some stranger. I do like to feel that I am loved rather than something shallow, untrue (as a one-night-stand is).

I do not want children though (for reasons that I am not going to discuss here).

Back to the article!

They say that long-term relationships are "Too troublesome" , but I think that this is just an excuse. They rely do want a relationship, it is just that they are afraid of loosing what they have.

It might be by Gaijin-white mindset but the statement that Kishino made seems weird: "I don't earn a huge salary to go on dates and I don't want the responsibility of a woman hoping it might lead to marriage."

I do not think that I have ever heard of anyone here engaging in a relationship because they think they will marry there partner. That is not to say that they will not get married, though.

And this might be due to my cheap-asrsery but if you are in a relationship with someone who loves you, why does the male have to present dough as a token of offering to the female?

Cheeses! I thought that you loved each other! NO! It seems that you are her sugar-daddy now!

Of course I would present gifts to my girl, but I hope that she would not expect me to do so. After all, is she after love or my coin? I want to live in a equal relationship, where we see each other as equals who loves each other, not as a master/slave or provider/user relationship.

It might just be that I have a strange world-view, and that the ideal girl does not exist. Perhaps girl only like dough, and that one-night-stands is what girl rely looking for... What do I know? I am single, have not had a relationship with a girl for many years.
