  <i>If you could change your partner without any consequences to your existing relationship, would you?</i>

I'm sorry, but I just have to nit pick on this one, because it's impossible.
Change how? Because every change has some sort of a 'consequence'. To change one's partner, is to change the relationship in itself. Whether it be the way you look at them, to the way you interact with them, something would be different.
If you wanted your partner to be less demanding, then the consequence would be that they are less demanding.
I don't know. I found the question to be a little arbitrary.

  Sorry for the vague question. The reason for posing this poll question was because I realised that some couples, even after their feelings have faded, or if they meet someone else they like, still stay together because they don't want to be the guilty party who initiates a break up. The crux of the question was whether you would choose to end the relationship if you were not burdened by stuff like making the other person sad, or having to explain it to the people around you.

How about when your feelings haven't so much faded as you realise theres a lot of issues you need to deal with and you can't do that when you're together...

Yeah, I can dig that. I suppose any question that's a 'yes' or a 'no' has to be vague in some aspects.
I guess it's just that I'm feeling cynical that I had to argue with it.

Hiya there yous. Welcome back here.


Was thinking about GT and how it was when I first started lurking in the forum, and wondered where had hypocrite gone to.

>The crux of the question was whether you would choose to end the relationship if you were not burdened by stuff like making the other person sad,

My last break-up- I thought that I would make a mix-disc of songs about break-ups and write "take a hint" on it, but then, after a second or two, I realized that I couldn't do something that evil...so I emotionally alienated her to show her that something was wrong. Then when she brought up the idea to break-up, I ended it.
I guess my answer is yes and no. It seemed that it was a clean break, but later she told me about how sad she was. I'd hope any ex of mine wouldn't be bitter after dating me.

Within the next few months, my mother is moving a half hour away from civilization as I know it and I'll be following along. I'll be going to another school so, I'll be putting some distance between me and my gf. When I told her about it all, I told her to leave me if she couldn't handle it, but I wouldn't break up with her. She replied, saying that she wouldn't leave me, no matter how much the distance sucks.
I'm not sure if that fits the question, because I wasn't breaking up with her and I can't see myself doing so either. I was just giving her the opportunity to get out of the relationship easily if necessary.
