Random ranting thoughts not particlularly connected to anything (and yes I'm a little bitter, having been betrayed and played in my last five year
Romance is a fabrication.
Romance is a myth-building marketing ploy to keep an endless product line of unfullfilled fantasy churning.
A relationship should be based on mutual respect, intellectual and sexual satisfaction, and that's it.
To think someone will fix you in any way, or magically understand you telepathically is just a mental virus and leads to severe mental and
relationship breakdown. Then we go looking again for the same impossible crap.
To need to be constantly told you're better looking than anyone else in the world is severe ego damage. People get together because they're attracted
to each other, why do we constantly need reassurance? There will ALWAYS be someone more attractive than you, you shouldn't need to be told you're the
most beautiful creature on the planet when you're in a relationship, it should just be evident by the fact that someone is with you that you are
beautiful to them. If you need some lame social pressure ritual to be made to feel 'special' then something's wrong with the day to day expression of
affection in your relationship.
Romance is a lie, a bower bird building a colourful nest so they can access your ovaries. Can't we see through such petty and shallow fabrications by
now and just get real?
The cliche of the nagging harridan is overly represented by the female of the species, look at all the depictions in our culture of women submitting
their men to their disaproval. The male equivalent is relatively rare, the female one is almost accepted with a shrug, as if it's just a fact of life.
No freaking way man. I will not be made to feel like crap because I failed some emotionally manipulative test I don't know the rules to.
I really don't know why anyone would willingly subject themselves to be berated or controlled in any way by either sex. If that's what it takes, I'd
rather be gay. (although I guess the same stuff might happen there too.) Okay, 'self-sufficient' then. The technology and quality of artificial
genitals has really come quite a long way in the last ten years.
As to having to pretend to be some stereotype of what the consensus has decided to label masculine, macho, or 'being a man'. Screw that. I'm a human
being. I'm insecure. But I have needs too goddammit! And when they find out you're a fake, what then? On to the next woman naive, needy, or young
enough to be fooled by a brash exterior?
But yeah I'm sure it works and that's what woman respond to and all. Just, ethically, it's really whiffy.
I'm a sensitive miserable moody prick. But I'm good with my hands.

I think that's why it's in the 'offtopic- relationships' section?
