    (when w/ your "significant other" is nothing but an obsession. in my opinion, it should be a psychological disorder. it is a very dangerous and harmful thing. it may cause deep depression, and even drive people to commit suicide. it also causes people to become dependent on that one person, some people become addicted to relationships to the point that they can not live on their own. when they break up w/ someone, they must find somebody else. people admittedly do very stupid things they wouldnt normally do over their obsession for this person. why doesn't anybody see this as a stupid tradition that should be dropped? people find "love" only because they are raised to believe that is right and there is no other way, not because it is logical.

    Applying logic to sex yields interesting results, one of which could be you loitering in the public toilets with intent ... Let us know how it works out.

    My love is as a fever, longing still
    For that which longer nurseth the disease,
    Feeding on that which doth preserve the ill,
    The uncertain sickly appetite to please.
    My reason, the physician to my love,
    Angry that his prescriptions are not kept,
    Hath left me, and I desperate now approve
    Desire is death, which physic did except.
    Past cure I am, now reason is past care,
    And frantic-mad with evermore unrest;
    My thoughts and my discourse as madmen's are,
    At random from the truth vainly express'd;
    For I have sworn thee fair and thought thee bright,
    Who art as black as hell, as dark as night.

    hell no i could care less if that were to happen. im just wondering why people can believe in something like that. anything based so much on emotion, can not possibly be logical. emotions are very unstable.

    I agree with you it is dangerous and not of sound mind to become totally dependant on your partner, just as it's not right to hold on to the parental strings after your child has grown. Or to still depend on your parents after you have fled the nest. It's not healthy but it's not love either. It's insecurity, obsession or just wrong as you said but that's not love.
