If you can't be with the one you love, is it better to be with someone else to not be alone?
If you cannot be with the one you love, is it better to be with someone else in order to not be alone?
Only if it feels good and it's fun to spend time with someone else rather than being alone. Being social, spending time with others is a great way to keep yourself feeling good if you can't be with the one you love.
It all depends on what you mean by (be with) and the circumstances of why you can't be with the person you love. Examples: Did they breakup with you? Are they married or involved with another person? Are they in the military and stationed far away? or Are you in a long distance relationship (feeling lonely) and want to be with someone?....etc
If you are no longer together period then it's not called "being with someone else". It's called (moviing on with your life). On the other hand if you are in a long distance relationship and (choose to be with someone else) while he/she is away then it's called "cheating". It's difficult to betray someone (you love). In this scenario you owe it to that person to let them know you can't handle the strain of not being with someone. As was said in the movie "Up In The Air", "Life is better with company".
Not necessary, it depends on the person you use as a substitute.
Not always. If you are with someone you don't like and using them, than you might hurt this new person.
I don't really think it's fair to be with someone just so we won't be alone (unless the other person is only being with you so he won't be alone either). If a person can't be OK alone then s/he won't be all that great a relationship partner either.
To me, if there was someone I loved that I couldn't be with, the first issue would be whether I could/would ever be with them again - or not. If not, then moving on (with someone new or else alone) would be the only options. If it was a matter of the person I loved coming back one day, and I was only alone temporarily; then I wouldn't be interested in anyone else anyway.
Personally, I'd never want just "any-old-body" just so I wouldn't be alone. There are a lot worse things than being alone.
for me it is.. sooner you'll develop your love to that someone else..
And what's wrong being alone? If you believe it's not godo for you, then being with someone might be better - for YOU. But not for someone else who is perfectly fine on their own.
Besides if you settle on something not so great, then you will miss out on opportunities to meet someone who could become your soul mate so I opt for single in such a case.
I would choose being alone. No one can replace that special someone that I love more than anyone else.

Can you really have a relationship with someone you don't trust.You can love them and want your relationship to work but if you don't trust them can it? Do you give it time and hope for the best?
