Romantic relationships are a drag on adventurous lifestyles. Could not agree more.

But they are also not the only secure relationships we can have in life. Secure and stable interpersonal relationships take other forms. My relationship with my father is very solid, and we talk often. Likewise, the solidarity of my very close friends gives me a stable haven when I need emotional support or a friendly ear, or they need one. These secure relationships are far more pure, healthier and less stressful than the drag weight of long term romantic interests.
