List Rules Any feeling that can finish the sentence, "Being in a relationship makes me feel ___"

It's no secret that being in a relationship is tough. You have to sacrifice, give up your freedom, your attention, and precious time spent with your friends. In return, you get the benefits of being in a relationship: acceptance, love, better health, and satisfaction. Or... do you? Is being in a relationship the best-thing-ever or a major pain in your butt? Odds are that you don't always feel completely one way or the other. Hopefully the good outweighs the bad or else you wouldn't still be in that relationship, right? 
 
Here's your chance to vote and compare yourself to others. How does being in a relationship make you feel? We can all be uncertain at times, but if you have to ask yourself again and again if you're in a good relationship, the answer may be "no."
