I'm in a relationship because I found the right person to be with. Most people are in relationships for all the wrong reasons (both dating and marriage).
The typical "straight" reason to be in a relationship is so that people don't think you're "gay". Hate me for saying it, but that is the reason for most "straight" relationships nowadays.
I have spoken to you before, and I value your opinion and what you contribute in chat/forums, but I have to disagree with this statement. There is no way of knowing what the intentions are of a relationship, let alone EVERYONE'S intentions. Secondly, and with all due respect, making this statement would be tantamount to me saying I know why gay guys are in relationships. For me to make that assumption would be ridiculous, in my humble opinion.
