My experience tells me that the word love in the context of an adult relationship was the invention of women.... like when I hand over my credit card....thanks Love
No love isn't the invention of women. It is an emotion defined by humanity, however, limited it might be.
It's understanding, isn't always grasped. Hence, much confusion on each persons part.
That's a ridiculous notion! Love isn't an invention, it's nature! The inventions of men, deceit, dishonesty, and hate are what poisons love.
you are such a huggy kissy kinda guy aren't you.... aw
love is a natural feeling, we show it in different ways, we feel it differently, we cope with it differently too, but it is the most wonderful feeling in the world -- to be loved and be loved in return,,
surely Poppa women can be deceitful,dishonest and hate driven...am I wrong...
I used the term "man" to represent mankind not a particular gender. Yes all those traits are human and not found in the animal kingdom.
tantrum, right back at you and it didnt cost me anything, were do you get those smiley faces....
some smiley you can make. click on the "formatting tips" thingy it will give you a better list..but for example
; ) with no spaces gets you and : ) =
other people have way better animated smileys, and I have no idea where htey come from. Im so jealous...
Sex is necessary to get the ball rolling. Don't forget that babies and then infants need a lot of care before they can make it on their own and in terms of survival it is best if there are two active parents instead of one. A man might go in for the sex off the bat, no problem there, but it is love which makes him want to stick around or at least love forms a good argument for him to do so. A partnership is the best way to go for survival of the young and thus survival of the species. Love is thus part of survival.
I suppose humanity could exist without love, but then that would mean I would simply be handing over my credit card for I suppose the sake of it.......even if it is the invention of women its better than nothing...isnt it?
Justine there are so many occasions when you help me out, thanks
Tantrum, No its Gold but its like Madoffs, slightly strained....
This comment annoyed me so much that my first reply was long enough to be a hub, so I made it one! There are plenty of people with good values (religious or secular), it's just that some aren't attracted to people of character, or it's far down the list of things they look for in a mate.
Thanks for helping me complete another hub though.
Tantrum, you just did not say the magic words.....and any way I am about to treat myself to a Chinese and a can of coke.....
Garnet just read your inspired hub very good, I am now a devoted follower....
Let`s not forget, there are many kinds of love, like the love of your children, friends, siblings, and fellow beings. Can you honestly say the love of a father for his son or daughter wouldn`t exist if not for woman?
Why does Love always seem to get reduced to sex....is there no romance left in the world
Soon it will be Valentines...is it all going to be about sex?
Not ALL about it, but it's a nice addition
No, love is not invented by women, though in many relationships it seems that the expectations are set by women. A materialistic woman who only wants a credit card needs a materialistic man who has a good job and is happy to be free of the burden of spending time with her and being romantic. On the flip side, some men crave the attention and intimacy every bit as much as the most touchy-feely woman, and they need an unmaterialistic woman who is also very touchy-feely.
wychic that was deep, as you say some women like money and some men like the attention and dont mind paying for it, I have often found that the word love is often first uttered by a woman in a relationship....like hanging it out there like a carrot and watching your reaction....if you bite your in trouble and your love becomes a stick with which to beat you, I could be wrong...
That could be...I've only been in two major relationships, and in both cases he was the one to say it first, and I've had others say it when I didn't feel the same. However, this could very well only speak to my own caution and not be representative of how most women would react. I also live in an out-of-the-way, small-town cowboy culture, which could make a difference...my husband tells me that he's used to much pushier women and much more intelligent men in other places .

What would you have done differently when you first realized spouse was in love with someone else?"Everyone you know '.s been through it.You bite the bullet then you chew it." (Roy Orbison's "The Only One").Hopefully not EVERYONE, but the sentence is true enough for many. No...
