I like to know what's going to happen in life so I can adjust my goals accordingly. This includes whether or not to pursue a relationship. The sooner I decide, the better. If I plan on getting married some day and having kids, then I can start to prepare for that situation. For example, I'm planning on building a house. It would be nice to know how big to build it. If it's just going to be me, I won't need much. If the goal is family, then I'll build a bigger one.
