    I'm just curious what people think.

    You DON'T have to have a universal answer. You don't have to factor in your friends or what other people do. Different strokes for different folks. Just answer for yourself.

    So, for example, if you only date people you foresee spending the rest of your life with, he is right... if your boyfriends / girlfriends are sometimes people you know you won't marry, or you don't think of the future, he is wrong.

    I'm not going to vote because I don't have a stance on this. Yet

    I don't think he's right necessarily nor wrong, but in my mind I think people (ultimately overall) date for marriage.

    Marriage is traditional in a sense, so when one dates another person, it's technically to see if you are a match with your SO for marriage/long life together.

    I wouldn't date anyone with whom I can't see spending the rest of my life with :o
    I've broken up with guys because of this reason

    depends. My friend says she knows her BF isn't right for her long-long-term...but she's just going to "ride it out."

    that seems terrible. i know people do it and i'm not judging...but that guy is going to be really hurt if he has no clue what is going on.

    Although, I'm not "opposed" - whatever that would even mean - to other people's stances on relationships.

    I think she might be like this. Who knows if her BF feels the same way, but for now she's having fun so doesn't feel a need to break-up. Unfortunatly I'm never just happy with "fun" and I'm always seeking out something better.

    Better meaning what? Deeper? More passionate? More consistent?

    i think hes wrong because hes speaking in black and white and theres a ton of gray areas

    my ex was someone i dated and definitely saw a possible future of marriage with, but we broke up months ago and im most likely joining the army in may and id like to date a girl for my last semester of college but i would have no plan of making it long term

    I don't know about you guys, but I can't see myself continuing to date someone whom I don't see a future with.

    I've never been that type of girl, and frankly I never will be.

    i dont date someone because i think they will continue to make me happy. you never know if someone will continue to make you happy. i date a person because that person makes me happy now.

    i hardly ever think about marriage, or an otherwise lifelong commitment of that sort. i actually dont like the idea very much.

    so, i voted for myself, and said that Viper is wrong.

    since Viper is wrong in my case, that means his argument is entirely wrong, because it claims to be correct in every case by default. or something like that.

    er... true.

    I should probably have used a different thread topic... I'm more interested in where people stand on this personally than in Viper's infallibility.

    boyfriend and girlfriend means happily in a relationship, it most certainly doesn't mean "lets imagine spending our lives together" :ugh:

    if this wasn't about viper, you wouldn't have the poll questions be about viper. you're pointing fingers and saying "i don't mean to point fingers" at the same time.

    viper and I are cool, as far as i know.

    imo you should avoid assuming worst intentions all the time.

    viper is right for MOST people who are older than the age of 20.

    regardless of what genuine desire for marriage you have. This is how bf/gfs are judged.

    This is even true for me. I won't date someone I won't marry. In fact I'm trying to avoid even sleeping with a girl who I won't marry.

    Edit: i am 23/m. I also don't agree with viper all the time....
