|Why Relationship Is A Scam by NaijaMutant(f): 8:41am On Apr 14|
Just making my debut in the romance section.
Why relationship is a scam.
Human beings are selfish by nature and everyone is only looking out for himself/herself. This is an undeniable fact. This fact also applies to relationships.
He is rich and she's beautiful; he wants a beautiful lady to match his wealth while she wants a rich guy to complement her beauty. Both of them reach a compromise to enter into a relationship since their selfish interest has been met.
When you also consider other various qualities such as Intelligence, education, complexion, character, height, sense of humor amongst other biases that shapes our selfish interest; both parties reach a compromise when their interest is met.
Both parties profess love and a relationship is established which is usually expected to lead to marriage. This is usually the case of some beautiful marriages around us.
Things usually fall apart the moment a partner meets another person who is higher in the scale of preference to satisfy his/her interest.
Then, the losing party feels cheated, betrayed and eventually turns into a feminist or misogynist.
We usually pretend our relationships are born out of true love forgetting that true love is not usually conditional or selfish.
If you have this understanding, you'll no longer kill yourself when your partner finds a better partner that will fulfill his/her dreams (selfish interest)
Know this and know peace.
P.S: This narrative does not negate the existence of true love which accounts for less than 5% of marriages today.

You're wise OP, nothing like love, selfish interest is the order of the day.
If it's does not favour us, we don't love it.

This applies to both male and females.

Relationships has always been a scam.... In most cases, both parties cheat on each other, but tend to feel betrayed when one of them find out about the cheating.
On Sunday, a friend was telling me how he sent his gf money to come to Lagos and spend a few days with him.... According to him, after he sent the money, she said she couldn't make it again because of one thing or the other..... Only for him to later discover she actually came and went to another guys place.....as he was telling me that, I was just laughing.
Finding someone loyal in a relationship is like finding a needle in a haystack.

the issue is that guys will never go and meet ladies that they want to Bleep, since sex is seen as dirty, but guys would rather hide under relationship .....say I love u I want relationship but deep inside man is to just suck and throw the reminant .....and for the ladies, they see their body as sacred and they believe man can't do without it, as a result ladies put premium on their body, ......did you think I'm a prostitute? yet deep inside them they want good money after going out with guys and not necessarily committed relationship , but they too hide under relationship blablah.

What U described is not a Realationship it is a business arrangement or even a Scam. More like an escort service. Money for company/companionship or relationship... I can’t call that a relationship and it never feels like a relationship nor does it have the characteristics of a real relationship.
A real relationship is built on the right yardsticks, and values after knowing each other that translates or transforms into love or Smtn close.
There is Smtn called contentment in relationships. Be happy with who u choose unless u did not really choose that person or they lied to u or deceived u. There will always be sm1 better than ur partner and u don’t have to leave them because u want sm1 better that’s wrong, why not make ur partner a better person instead. It just means u will also leave that new person when u see sm1 else better aswell. That’s not a “Real”antionship.

The headline does not deserve such a basic-thought out article.

That is the world we find ourselves in. A relationship should be a conscious decision to stick with a person irrespective of the circumstances, not because she/he is the most beautiful or handsome you can ever find but because you have made a conscious decision to be together
