Andy said he loves the challenge of relationships. He knows he has to work at it in order to make a love affair last. "Relationships make me keep myself up, work out, look good, stay sharp, keep my eye on the competition. After all, I don't want her running off with some other guy. When things work out, I feel like a winner. I feel proud showing her off to my family and friends too. It's like I'm saying, look what I have. Look who I am." For many guys like Andy, relationships are a big ego boost. They keep them on the sharp edge of life, and force them to be the best they can.

In As Good As It Gets, Jack Nicholson's character says to Helen Hunt's, "You make me want to be a better man," and it is indeed a compliment.
