An impossible-to-answer question, because each person's needs are different. I think some people are self-contained and self-sustaining, and having less intimate types of relationships are enough for them. Not just enough, but preferable.
Other people - and here I'll say most people - benefit from the emotional intimacy of stable relationships.
I'm one of those rare people who has been comfortable both ways. Each has benefits. Just depends on what the individual wants and needs
I wouldn't say it can be defined in those terms. Settling down may provide pleasure for one person, while staying single may provide pleasure for another.is the benefits of the latter i.e not settling down more towards pleasure or? thanks
So one doesn't have to go aimlessly on dates, wondering if this one will work out or when the next date is.
I never want to be single again. That aimlessly part got old.
