To be in a relationship for the sake of it?

Is it better to be in a relationship for the sake of it or not to be in one at all?

I met a girl, but there wasn' t as much spark from my side as from her side... I' ve been single for a while, but dont want to end up hurting her down the line... but not being able to give back what she is offering me.

What do you suggest?

What is the point of a relationship at all ? What, really, does "for the sake of it " mean ? Is it done so that other people will notice that you're "in a relationship" ? If so, why do they and their opinions matter ? You met a girl --- and you do NOT feel "a spark " and probably neither you nor she would enjoy a relationship ? Why proceed with it, then ? It is likely that both of you could get hurt, and there's no upside I can see
