I cycle through phases of really wanting one and not wanting one at all. I've only ever been in one relationship, though it lasted for quite some time. I really miss the companionship aspect where I always had someone to talk to and do nice things for, as well as sleeping next to somebody and having somebody to make love to, but I don't miss having all of my money taken and being mistreated and not being able to live my life for myself. I find myself in sort of an interesting position in my mid-twenties where I have probably six years of various things that I need to take care of in terms of my goals before being able to settle into a relationship and support a family, but being at the perfect age to settle down. I'll probably compromise and marry a younger girl once all of my ducks are in a row.
There are certain nights where I'm unbearably lonely, though, and am tempted to just compromise so that I can pursue a relationship now. I've always really wanted a family, and it's rough to see all of my siblings married, but such is life.
