Love can seem like a self interest game but I don't see it as a selfish display purely to make yourself feel better...a couple is not an ''entity'' whose purpose is to build a lacking self-esteem.

The whole concept of getting into a relationship so you can feel better about yourself comes from the standpoint of someone who hasn't learned to fully love themselves the way they are. One can only know unconditional love once you're truely at peace with who you are.
Hey, you're stuck with you...Learning to live with yourself, to accept and love yourself is a lifetime achievement. People who can't let go of the fixed conceit in their minds will eventually fill the void with someone else because of the feeling of appreciation that affection brings. I don't call that love, I call that an emotional need.

That's the 100% cold harsh fact of life.

Everything else you listed are simply options to explore, but aren't the only ones.

I wish you the best in exploring that world you've built around yourself.
