What you write may have more truth to it than some people in this thread choose to realize. However, it is mostly true for women, i have come to realize. Sure it is true for many men as well, the weak minded ones with no real interests or passions. However, among men we have many exceptions to disprove that what you said is true. As an example, just look at Nikola Tesla, his whole life he ignored women completely for the benefit of science. A man can have other passions than just women, for which they burn more strongly.
Although at first glance i gladly admit that what you say is probably true for the majority of men as well as women.edit on 16-9-2012 by NeoVain because: (no reason given)

Is it yourself you are trying to convince? Bad breakup?

I think that true love is not for breeding purposes but to insure the staying together of the parents to give offspring a good chance. You are mixing 'fancying' someone to loving someone. If wanting sex with someone is a simple chair, then love is a big cumfy sofa in comparison.
I am married for over 20 years now and we love each other very much, we are best friends as much as lovers and here comes the clincher. We have always decided that we don;t want children.
And we don't have any and never will even though we are completely capable...bliss.
Either we are freaks of nature [possibly] or the idea of true love = breeding is a load of ballony.
Companionship between mammals doesn't always mean they want to breed. It is sad if the OP believes that. Hope he/she finds someone worthy one day.
There are no magical divine twin flames or soulmates.
Secondly, understand that we all pick our mates based on looks, height, weight, and a little on personality. Breeding is 100% shallow and you all should accept it.
