I don't understand it at all. Seeing relationships in action tells me nothing of how they came to be in the first place.

I think relationships take a lot of work at first, especially if one is inexperienced, but as someone matures, things get a lot easier.

They're pretty strange, feel un-natural. Its probably because i feel like a kid and kids aren't supposed to be in relationships. Sometimes its worse than others.

Troll?

I was being dead serious about the human relationships being a social construct. One could seriously argue that an abusive relationship is more natural than a so called well adjusted one (I said natural, not good). We all have primal urges that must be subjugated for the sake of civilization. The relationships that it seems like everyone desires really aren't natural, that's why relationships are so awkward. It's not natural, and the dating game varies by the culture.
