Is Happiness the Only Important Thing in a Relationship?
In my numerous conversations with people, I find that there are a wide swath of things that people get hung up on. Relationships, jobs, social issues, emotions, what he said, what she said. It's a lot to take in.
Just recently, I had a discussion with a girl in which she was giving me possible relationship scenarios. What if the girl's huge? What if you met her on a dating site? What if she had tattoos all over her body? And other such questions.
At one point, following the excessively large girl scenario, she added, "Isn't that disgusting?"
While I may not be interested in women of that physique, I said, "No, it's not disgusting." I went on to say that just because I don't necessarily dig that, who's to say that other people do not. Each person alive has a set of preferences, likes and dislikes, and I tried to impart on my conversation partner that none of any of the "other stuff" really matters if you're happy.
I think that happiness what most people strive for. My main stipulation is that so long as you're happy and not hurting anyone, who cares? If you don't want someone huge, then don't get with someone huge. There will be someone else who wants that type of person. And that's okay.
