i always feel different than most other women...including my friends. they *bound* from one relationship to the next, frantic to be coupled up.

i suggest things like, say, going outside, reading a book, volunteering, etc....something *anything* for a couple of months. just pause and take a break and be quiet with yourself. but they never do...

you always speak of the biological perspective on things...i wonder how much is that vs. this idea that we are not complete unless we are coupled up.

That's a very astute observation ~ the biological imperative. I suspect that biology does play a role and then societal expectation backs the biology for a double-whammy.

Additionally, it seems to me that many people have difficulty with personal self-confidence and security. There's nothing to give both a boost like finding a mate ~ despite the fact that if those are the reasons for finding a mate, it leaves one vulnerable when that companionship is withdrawn.
