    Is love necessary in life???

    Well nowadays money seems to be buying everything.
    Well some people may argue and say it can't buy love.
    But there are other believers who think it can attract people towards you and eventually you will fall loving one of them.
    Well the answer differs from person to person....
    Suggestions welcomed!!!

    There are only 5 "needs" for an adult.
    1. Air
    2. Water
    3. Food
    4. Shelter
    5. Clothing (It's the law in most places).
    Beyond the 5 needs everything else falls under "would be nice to have". Ironically all of the so called "needs" can be had in any prison.
    We don't live for our "needs". We live for "hopes and dreams"!
    Money gives you options. You deicide what your {wants} are.
    Ultimately everyone gets to (choose) who they will spend their time with. You get to choose your own friends, lovers, and spouse.
    Everyone is entitled to have their own "preferences".
    If you were an old rich guy who wanted a young beautiful woman and found one who was looking for an old rich guy then you both have what you want! Everyone wants someone who has "something" going for them self. One person's "preference" is defined as "shallow" to another person. Life is a (personal) journey!
    Hugh Hefner (founder of Playboy Magazine) was 86 when he married his 26 year old wife. I suspect if he had been Hugh Wilson retired high school teacher this woman would not have dated/married him.
    He'd be pursuing someone who looked like actress Betty White.

      I see that all your "needs" fail to address any kind of psychological requirements.

      Psychological (requirements) have more to do with the "quality" of one's life rather than the requirements (needed) to continue to exist. Lots of people live with psychological issues. No one lives long without air though.
      That's a need!

    I feel like most people for sure need love in one way or another.  We need to give and receive it to be happy, I believe it's human nature.  There are some people out there who may have been alone for a very long time and deal with that in their own way.  I think we grow a stronger sense of self when we are alone, and learn how to survive (be content) without somebody to love or to love us.  But I bet if somebody came along for that lone wolf, they would bite. 

         There is far to much hate in this world, and to me it seems like it all stems from greed.  Unfortunately it seems to also be human nature to want more then what we already have.  The richer you are the more greedy you become, and love -in general- helps combat greed. 

         Love is absolutely necessary to life, and it`s a good thing most of us so naturally have a desire to have it because in turn it makes us want to give it back.
