Krystal Baugher. After a pretty brutal breakup of mineI remember the day I finally emerged from wallowing in my dark cold basement. Then she sat me down in front of my computer and told me I was going to start dating again. I looked at her in horror. I just stared into the brightness of the computer light, mostly confused until what she said sunk in.
I could just meet people, no strings attached. In fact, she was right, I needed to find the rebound. The one guy who was so incredibly hot it would help me get my groove back, remind me I still had it, get me out of my rut of despair and heartache. So I went for it. He ended up being this quite attractive, very tall man with an unfortunate moustache and an even more unfortunate need to baby-talk during sex. He lasted all of one night, but it was one of those short term relationships that needed to happen. Here are a few things to consider when Wanting something long term comes to short term versus long term relationship priorities.
Not every relationship is meant for the long-haul. Often times people want a connection of some sort —physical, mental, spiritual—without it being so serious. There are all sorts of short term relationship structures out there like the one night stand ONSthe friends with benefits FWB and the play thing PT regularly scheduled sex with one person minus the friends part.
The priorities within these structures usually include a closer desire to fulfill basic needs like sexual gratification, fun, momentary closeness with another human being, touch, self-discovery through the discovery of new people, re-examining wants for long term partnership etc. Establish boundaries early on to avoid confusion and unnecessary pain later down the line.
Priorities also change as time becomes more of a factor. Other traits in long term relationships include loyalty, commitment, love, fulfillment, compatibility within all major aspects of the physical, mental, and spiritual as opposed to short-term that might just be seeking one; as well as the ability to challenge one another to be their best selves.
Long term is more about a partnership than the short term which is more about discovery and experimentation. Both are perfectly acceptable ways to be in the world. Short or long, both should be approached with sincerity, authenticity, and open honest communication so that both parties on board can get the most joy and enlightenment from the experience as possible.
