Top 5 Problems with a No Strings Attached Relationship

Top 5 Problems with a No Strings Attached RelationshipFor the most part, no strings attached relationships are pretty breezy. They come with a whole lot of benefits, and not a lot of drawbacks. But nothing in life is perfect, and there can be problems, even in such an ideal arrangement. These are the top five problems that guys in no strings relationships complain about.
#1 No One to Take to Family Gatherings
You haven’t brought anyone to Thanksgiving or Christmas gatherings for the past three years. Your mother is wringing her hands and constantly nagging you, asking when you’re going to meet a nice girl and settle down. She assumes that you must not be seeing anyone at all, and therefore, terribly lonely. You don’t have the heart to tell her that you’re only interested in sex and get plenty of that. But putting up with the constant harping about you forever alone status can be a real drag.
#2 She Won’t Always Be Available When You Want to See Her
She chose a no strings relationship for all of the same reasons that you did. For the most part, this is a really good thing. Sometimes it can be a pain in the ass, though. When you’re horny and send her a text asking her to come over and she texts back, “Sorry, dude! Tonight I’m out dancing,” it can be a bummer. You can get around this one, though. In an ideal no strings set up, you’ll have a booty call list with at least a few other names on it. If the first one isn’t available, just work your way down the list. Even then, there will be times when no one wants to hook up when you do. Just remember that it’s a small price to pay for your own freedom.

#3 Sometimes You Might Actually Miss the Emotional Component of a Relationship
It probably won’t happen all that often, but every now and then, you might find yourself in a situation where you miss the emotional components of a more traditional relationship. If someone you love dies, or you’re sick with a bad case of the flu, it can be nice to have a woman baby you. If you don’t have any female friends you’re not interested in sexually, you might want to get some if you’re going to choose no strings relationships. Your gal pals can gap fill and be there for you emotionally, while your sex buddy stays in the role of strictly sex.
#4 Some People Might Judge You Harshly
If you’re open about the fact that you’re in a no strings attached relationship, so people might judge you harshly. They might assume you’re a total jerk and only care about yourself. Or that you have no morals. They might even claim that you hate women and have no respect for them. While it’s really none of their business, and you might know deep down that none of it is true, it can still sting. If you live in an area that’s really religious or conservative, you might feel like you have to keep it to yourself entirely in order to keep friends and avoid job place discrimination.
#5 Sometimes the Woman Gets Attached
Sometimes, even in a relationship in which you were both really clear that you were looking for a no strings situation, the woman will end up getting attached to you, and that can get messy. The best way to deal with this situation is prevention. Do your best to screen the women you hook up with, and rule out the ones that drop hints that they might be inclined to pull a bait and switch. Another preventative measure is by leaving no room for ambiguity. Tell her from the beginning, in no uncertain terms, that you are not interested in anything other than a no strings arrangement. Throughout your relationship, don’t send her mixed signals that make her think you might be falling in love with her. Be clear about your intentions. If, despite all of these efforts, she ends up falling in love with you anyway, it’s best to just end things as quickly as possible. You can’t go back to the way things were before, and the longer you stick around, the worse it will get.
As you can see, even in a no strings relationship, trouble can arise. However, when comparing these issues to the ones that come from committed relationships, for a lot of guys it’s a no brainer. The problems are less frequent and easier to remedy, and when they seem like to much to deal with, it’s a heck of a lot easier to remove yourself from the situation. When you know what the pitfalls are, you can usually plan accordingly and avoid most of them. Nothing’s perfect, but the no strings relationship comes pretty close. These issues are a small price to pay for the fun and freedom you’ll have in exchange.
