One thing that human beings learn about life very early on is the simple yet critical notion of, "if it hurts, don't do it again."

It's one of the most instinctual, concrete thing that sense memory can teach us.

So why is it that when I apply that to relationships, I am deemed "bitter" by everyone else?

Why is it wrong for me to use my common sense?

  2. He has a point. No matter how much we try to avoid damage it's going to get us sooner or later. So have fun while you can.

  3. Well, while he or she does have a point, my point has been missed here. I'm not asking why I shouldn't apply common sense to relationships and withdraw myself. I'm asking why it is considered such a selfish atrocity when I do.

  4. I think the real point is, it only hurts you.
