It is not meaningless. In the grand scheme of your existence it is the only meaning. To be alive is to be able to feel physical contact and love. Without that you have a defective brain and should not be able to propagate

and love is just a meaningless emotion.
Love is nature's way of tricking us into reproducing.

Who is this addressed to specifically? Char or Auk? I believe that Auk was actually being sarcastic.

I always had to ask the nerdy guys out myself. I would just go up to them and ask "where are you taking me Friday night?" It always worked. You will find that nerdy guys will answer a direct question.
If this ever happens to me with a girl, I think I'll mary her. 3 X Horray for a women's initiative! :smile:

Amen! :biggrin:

Sex is just a meaningless physical sensation...
That is nearest and dearest to most peoples hearts thereby giving it meaning :approve:

Propagate? Like a wave?

mad props.
Props that make the waves?

I guess he has a point though. People who can't feel human emotion are fairly uninhibited in what they will or will not do.

It's funny that you'd pick the word waves when talking propagation because it's such a physicsey thing to do, if you were all biologists you'd be saying "like genes" instead of "like waves" seeing as it's biology parlance to say that "genes propagate" :tongue2:

Oh, and if you ever find a human being that does not feel human emotion send them my way,
I've been looking for a way to win a nobel prize for discovering something that has never existed or ever been found before :biggrin:

I was being sarcastic earlier, but really, love is just a meaningless emotion. emotions can feel good or bad, but after whatever caused the emotion is no longer present in your life, it is the knowledge you gained from them that matters. They are therefore only tools to learning. It's not hard to make the argument that an artist's masterpiece carries more significance than the tools from which it came to form. One can infer that this same argument applies to life, and as such, emotions carry no true meaning.

Normally, I don’t feel comfortable citing my preferences (my family doesn’t even know). But since it is now nearly 5 o’clock in the morning--and I am practically an insomniac anyway—I think I should like at least to describe the characteristics, of she whom I belonged to (and forever will, I pray).

She was way smarter than me; positively gleeful while at work; very humorous (laughed while reading the newspaper even); and, was religiously inclined (though, not a loony either).

She was fairly neat and organized too (though, again, not an obsessive neat-freak). Really, she was just very self-reliant about everything. I preferred always to be her helper, in any way she’d allow it—and which, I regret, was not often enough—but I admired her so, nevertheless. What an able person she was.

Truly, and in all ways I can think of: the woman that I belonged to, was everything I could ever aspire be myself. And she was very good, all of the time, to everybody. She’d TALK—a lot—to anyone; total strangers even, at length. And I absolutely adored her voice. Yet oddly enough: when we were alone together, I remember she would speak very softly, and use fewer, if any words. Really, she more sort-of glanced at me a lot, in order to convey herself.

I’m not one for speaking much either (I prefer to write); but she had a beautiful speaking voice—something, maybe, between a Kathleen Turner, and a Mackenzie Phillips. It was a deep, strong, but still distinctly feminine voice. I liked to listen to her sing at mass, but she was very self-conscious (and would sing low) because of the women she lived with. Frankly: she had a sexier voice than any of them (but again, wasn’t overt in any respect about it either).

She liked to make waffles, and took a lot of pride in them, and in whatever she was up to cooking. Originally, my love came from Kentucky; and as you might expect of a southern female, was a superb cook. She made me ribs once, to absolutely die for.

I worked with her (that’s how we met), and I learned a lot from her. I think that’s very important in a relationship too—to be able to learn from someone, and share your talents with. Though I don’t honestly believe: that there was a darn thing ever that I knew, that I could have ever taught her; I still felt somehow that she appreciated my sensibilities too; and also the many dumb things that I made for her over the years.

She was a genius really, and was perfectly confident in herself, as far as academic and domestic things were concerned (like sewing for example—she made her own clothes too!). Yet somehow—and even despite how great she was—she lacked confidence in the sort of things that are maybe more artistically inclined. I truly feel however: that if she ever felt like sitting down and actually painting a portrait or landscape, she would have executed it far better than me (and supposedly, I was the artistic one); and yet, she never attempted to for some reason. It’s one of those things I had intentions of instigating in her, one day. She needed a shove, I thought.

She was a sports fan—liked football—and even though I’m not much of an athlete myself (nor do I follow much), I respected that about her immensely. It honestly made me want to learn how to play; I always figured that she liked the football player type (though she never said).

Physically speaking: she was tall (about 5’10”) and very broad-hipped. She was bosomy also, but narrow in the shoulders (which sloped nicely), and her hips were much bigger than average. Such that: even the most simple, no frills, mono-chromatic house dress, looked particularly lovely on her. She had a feminine neck; nice long arms, which were soft at the top; lovely hands; and a big toothy grin (which gave her trouble sometimes, but I still thought was so very cute).

She had beautiful, crooked, natural teeth. And when she smiled, she smiled big; just like a little kid. She was 55. And not gray, but silver-haired; and had beautiful brown eyes.

SHE NEVER WORE MAKE-UP, or painted her fingernails; and she (believe it or not) always wore a dress, when I knew her. Not an extravagant or revealing thing, mind you; but rather, something she literally made on her own (with a length, a little below the knee). Truly, she was one the only one of her kind.

Overall, I would say that she was pleasantly plump. AND, this is the ultimate: she had the absolute softest cheek I have ever kissed. From a little boy, I remember hearing about how women have softer skin than men; but I never understood what that meant exactly, until one day, I finally kissed her. No lie: she was like kissing a warm buttermilk pancake, lovingly crafted by GOD.

There will never be another like her. Her name was Jayne Goebel. And if she had finally agreed to marry me, before she died, I would have happily become Francis Goebel instead of she Jayne Ziegler. It’s the name I want for myself even now., because I know that I belonged to her.

Nerds, I suppose then, maybe just need to belong to a woman.

I am a nerdy guy who is 23 and in college. I have 3 qualities that I look for in a girl.

1. Intelligents
2. Ambition
3. Atheist
haha!! now you've met me! haha!

no, seriously - I've found that too! scientist guys tend to want girls to be atheists! well it makes sense! We are scientists! we believe what is proven!
yes, not strongly religious is a big plus when it comes to dating science guys!

Francis, thats so sweet! probably the nicest thing about love that I've seen! See, I think there's a good example of what love should be like (for all you non-believers/woman haters!)
love might not be so important in the grand scheme of things, but to each individual, I think it is the most beautiful and amazing thing we can experience :)

sex is not meaningless! none of us, in fact, none of the sexually-reproducing creatures would be here if it wasnt for sex! WE NEED SEX TO SURVIVE!

Do you think that could work as a pickup line? It is necessary to keep the species going. Unless we suddenly start reproducing asexually.

I occasionally use the "What if I were the last man on earth" line though I seem to get an inordinately small percentage of positive replies. I can only guess that women are not as concerned with the proliferation of the species as men.

Some weeks ago young lady hinted me she would like to have a baby with me. Needless to say, Ive run away, and never returned any of her calls :P Too bad, I liked her but this really pushed me way. I guess some things are better left untold :P

I concur...having someone just walk up and say they want to have a baby with you is a bit of a turn off. I think this is mostly because people see kids as one of the possible downsides to having sex.

Im quite sure she wouldn't have minded the practice. But I did minded. The point is, you just don't say something like this when you seen someone a couple of times. I decided to bail, and taking some "practice sessions" after this decision would not have been fair to her, since my mind was set.

I was really into this one guy -- he was cute, tall, quiet (except when he talked to me and his other friends,) and intelligent. He had book smarts and focused more on facts while I questioned ideas and was all about theories. I still really like him. I had one of my friends ask him if he thought I was cute and if he liked me (I mean, I thought I'd made it obvious that I liked him and I was curious when he would start talking to me more and more without asking me if I wanted to do anything.) He answered yes to both. About 2 or 3 weeks later, I told him to call me so we could talk. I'd given him my number beforehand. He did and we talked, and he was SHOCKED to find out that I liked him. I still can't believe it.

"Nerdy" guys are totally my type. I'm not looking for a guy who's always romantic and this and that. I've dated guys like that and they bored me. I'd much rather be with someone who watches the same movies and listens to the same music as I do. I want someone who challenges me without going over the top, and is honest about the things they like and don't like.

I guess I just need to be straightforward about what I want. I don't know how else I'll go out with one.
