Many relationships today are centered on sex, money, good food, beauty, Trips and lots, however, relationships should be more than that. An ardent Facebook user, Olumide Glowville posted on his timeline about what should be looked out for in a relationship. In his post he pointed out that sex, food, trips and beauty are the basics of a relationship. He said relationship is an exchange of values, your partner ought to motivate you, impart something positive in your life, give you inner peace, gives you something extraordinary and uncommon.

He writes:

Until your partner offers something more than the basics - Sex, money, movie dates, getaways - your relationship hasn't exactly started!

I had this discussion with a colleague at work today, and this struck me.

A relationship is an exchange of value, not an exchange of basics.

So you are getting the best sex in the world; many other people can and will do that, if given a chance. That's basic!

He is taking you on vacations and giving you the expensive things; so many rich guys will do the same on a higher scale, if they get a chance. It's basic.

She cooks great meals, so what? A lot of women can cook better. He helps in the kitchen, great! But there are many guys who can do that as well. That's basic too.

Most of the things we fawn about and pay more attention to in relationships are basic. We tend to undermine the more important things that require our attention.

Things like, does he/she motivate you to get better? Do they influence your life positively? Do they go out of their way to help you? Do they stand up for you anywhere? Do they protect you?

Most people are in a relationship where they enjoy things they can already do for themselves.

If your partner can't talk sense to you, call a friend to help you when you need it, give you inner peace, freedom to aspire or just impact value into your life, you don't have a serious relationship. You are just playmates!

Get you a partner that can offer something more than ordinary, something quite uncommon.

Sex, food, trips, and others are nice, but they aren't invaluable, are they?

#word #preach bro! So so spot on!! I once dated a leech who only finds joy in sleeping and creeping around until I founds out and kick her sorry ass! Guys never take back a cheating girlfriend or a cheating boyfriend they ain't got nothing new to offer u. Be bold in maintaining ur stand and never fall back to have a momentary pleasure that can distort the decision u took to rid them from ur life. Use ur head to reason and never ur d.i.c.*.

relationship these days are something else, sometimes in order for you to measure where your relationship is heading to takeaway sex and money from for sometime and see if its still worth it.

Is there really a relationship perfected and based on a universally acceptable criterion?
There is none my brother.
What it is for you might be exactly what it is not for me.
There is no manual for collectively judging relationships.

True. If u are in a relationship and still feel a void, then you need a rethink.

If people follow this write-up eh, we'll have so many breakups and peeps wailing on NL.

So let them be with those that make them happy.

in as much as I hate to admit it..I think the op is right.
However we must not under estimate the power of money in a relationship.
Relationships have grown beyond those things listed above by the op.
In our society all I look for in a relationship is compatibility, maturity and the ability to turn a blind eye to things.
