You've had 'bad' experiences with ladies, eh Filo?
I love the ladies, just not what I need in my life in terms of a mate, however. Not because women are women............but because men are men.
I don't know what your experiences are, but you appear to have some rather biased opinions yourself. Not ALL women are fashion-driven, money-hunting empty heads, you know.
Oh, I definitely know this. I wasn't bashing women at all. I don't see any problem with a woman who is fashion-driven and money hunting, either. It's not a crime to shop 'til you drop and seek a man who has his life together with a secure lifestyle. Nothing I have said is meant to attack women or blame women for why relationships fail. With that being said, the reality is, that most relationships do fail and those that don't, often times, are hectic and riddled with drama, up-and-downs, and leave people questioning their relationship status. There is no coincidence when straight folk make the statement (and I hear/read this REGULARLY) "gay people should be allowed to be miserable and get married too".
Even some ladies rather enjoy to have a friendly, steadily relationship with a rather nice guy in stead of hooking up with some kind of a self-proclaimed 'sex god'.
Most ladies would prefer that. That's why I prefer men. Women are more relationship driven, which runs 100% counter to what I desire.
It all comes down to true friendship eventually. The nice, friendly folks who understand that it's all a matter of getting along well together.
As of that, I enjoy friendships with men and women equally. Yes, that IS possible.
I agree, that to make a relationship work, you need to be friends with that person to. You have to enjoy that individuals' company. But..............one can be friends with someone, and maintain a strong friendship with people, regardless of gender, and not jump into a relationship with them and put a title on the friendship.
Not everything in this world revolves around sex. At least not in MY world - and I'm rather happy about that.
As long as you're happy, that's great and I'm happy for you. But great sex undoubtedly makes the life of anyone who isn't asexual even better! Sex is just so beautiful, and symbolizes so many things in so many ways; engaging in intercourse with a human who you are inherently attracted to is so incredibly fulfilling.
