A سوال kind of inspired off a Black Mirror episode....

If آپ had the ability to click a button and find out how long a relationship would last, may that relationship be friendship, romatic, یا familial, would آپ click the button?

SCENARIO A: If آپ click the button, آپ will have to click the button every time after that for every relationship.

SCENARIO B: آپ do not have to click the button again if آپ click it once and it will always be open to clicking.

State what آپ would do under both scenarios

I wouldn't in either scinario. The future isn't real, there's no such thing as fate. Even if something theoretically tell me the future, that won't change the fact that I still have to give my marriage my all, یا else the future might still be wrong.

^My theory alligns with yours. Also, even if it was capability to be 100% correct, I wouldnt anyways since knowing such a deadline would do nothing مزید than make the left over days horrid.

As of like two years ago, I would have کہا neither cuz I don't believe in fate یا destiny, but since then my گیا پڑھا مرتبہ on it have changed. For friendships and familial relationships, I'm kinda meh on it so I'd probably do Scenario B for those cuz I don't care about my family very much and I only have one true friend.

On romantic relationships tho...I have noticed I've become rather cynical towards the concept of love in the last two years, taking on a "it'll screw آپ over if آپ let it" attitude so I would emphatically choose Scenario A cuz آپ can't get hurt یا betrayed if آپ don't put any trust in anything.

I realize that's a shitty way of looking at it. I kinda feel bad cuz I used to be upbeat and optimistic about that kind of stuff but eh.

My answer didn't really answer what I'd DO in both scenarios so much as which relationships I'd choose for each scenario

In scenario A I wouldn`t press it. It would be too boring to live life that way. I imagine that would mean that I can`t change future no matter how hard I tried and everything would play out exactly as the button has said.

In scenario B I guess I might use that button if it`d work for, let`s say, old frieds with whom I`ve drifted apart. I would like to know if it`s worth trying to renew the friendship یا if they have changed so much that we couldn`t really ever be good دوستوں again.

I'm having a hard time thinking of anything that could actually be gained سے طرف کی knowing that information.

Presumably it's so آپ can gauge how much time/effort/trust/expectation to put into کہا relationship, so آپ aren't horribly disappointing when it ends, but the length of time آپ know that person would be a really crappy way to try and calculate that.

The time alone wouldn't indicate the quality of the relationship in question. آپ can have short-lived relationships that were really good and آپ were glad to have still, یا آپ can be in a horrible relationship for years and years that آپ hate being in.

Like, I would much rather be close دوستوں with someone that I only knew for like 3 months that still left a lasting, positive impression on me than be stuck married to someone I hate for 10+ years because I'm scared to death of being alone.

And if آپ just knew how long each of those relationships lasted, and based its entire merit on how long it was, you'd assume the friendship was shit but the marriage was awesome when really it was the opposite.

Consequently, آپ may put less stock in a relationship آپ know is only going to last a short while that آپ actually had a lot to gain from. آپ may put مزید stock into someone that's going to drive آپ absolutely insane in the long run and in the end not be worth it.

And if آپ weren't going to use it as a way to decide which relationships weren't and were going to be worthwhile, what would آپ even do with that information? آپ could say that آپ can't be hurt if آپ know the relationship will end in 10 months, but is it really the length of time یا the relationship ending that hurts? It's usually something else, something مزید nuanced, that makes it hurt.
Not to mention that every time آپ see that person, you're going to have how long your relationship will last in the back of your head no matter what. That would suck, not to mention that it would kind of take away from the organic factor of building relationships.

The only time it would really be beneficial at all in any way would be if it told آپ that آپ were going to be in a relationship that آپ were really happy, but there comes a point in any relationship whether it be a friendship یا a romance یا a familial thing where آپ can kind of tell on your own.
And that's assuming things don't go ھٹی, ترش and آپ just stay together because its convenient یا something which does happen.


There's really no point in that sort of thing when آپ really sit down and think about it. Relationships are nuanced.
