Attachment is an excellent thing. So many people are afraid of it. Why? Shouldn’t everyone love that fact that their significant other cares about them as much as they do? I’m attached to my girlfriend. I believe she’s attached to me. Everyone gives that a negative connotation. It’s absolutely stupid to me. “Ah man, you’re her bitch. You’re so attached,” or “She’s just way too attached, I can’t handle it.” I’ll never understand why people get into a relationship if they don’t expect to get attached to the person they’re dating. Or they don’t want it. Don’t date if you don’t plan on something long term. Find someone who strictly wants to screw around. But establish between the both parties that it won’t last for a long time, or otherwise expect some form of attachment to come along. It’s a given. We’re human beings, when you become intimate with someone, even just to have sex, you will gain an common attraction towards each other. And that comes with time. But if you plan on getting into a relationship, you should expect to become one with that person. You will become attached. And if you don’t like it, then you shouldn’t be looking to get into a relationship. Relationships are serious things, but their value has slowly been degraded because peoples’ idea of them has become totally skewed. I’m damn proud of being attached to my lady. With attachment, comes a form of security. You know she loves you, and she know you love her, and the worries of anything scandalous happening starts to disappear. There are people who think the excitement and stress of those worries keep them going, but I disagree. Once they disappear, and the trust towards each other has grown so strong, you guys have created a world for yourselves that has become impenetrable. Stay consistent amongst all the clutter, and it will last. Don’t let people come between that trust. Always consult each other. See eye to eye on common ground, and don’t bloat arguments with bullshit. It’s really not that hard. When you throw out all that unnecessary problematic shit, then the relationship really starts to blossom. And you’re afraid of that, then you need to step it up, and swallow your pride, or stick to casual encounters. But don’t linger in those too long, either.
