to love or not to love

if you were in a relationship and you knew for certain that this person was not going to be 'the love of your life' :barf: and really the only reason you were with them was because you were wasting time until someone better came along, would you stay in this relationship or end it?

Depends on the circumstances. Some couples stay togeher but live sepearate lives for the sake of their children. Personally, I would end it

Seems a bit cruel on the other person in this relationship, just to string them along until someone better turned up but, as M485 says, if kids are involved then it's a different situation. However, if both parties in this relationship are happy with just trundling on, then it's between them.

I'm single, so I can't really comment on whether I'd stay or go, but I suspect I would end it.

End it. No point in you both being unhappy, and the other person might find someone who does love them, whilst you wait for someone better to come along.

I would end it, as messy said, it's not very fair to the other person.

I think its best to end it. Life is too short. Even IF there are children involved my advice would be to end the relationship with the partner...but never the children.

End it, unless the person agrees to let me use him/her...

And I had such a relationship and I blatantly told the guy I was using him only for physical affection and to hang out...he didn't have any problems with it so we continued that for months. But he used a stand in girlfriend when we went out.
