I'd say that this is seeing things under a certain perspective. I would rather say, that with the way life is running for the middle class (the regular worling people), for most everyday life will become a routine. Day-in, day-out, week after week after month after year. The same thing is, then, true for sex. Even the most tasty dish will become stale, if you eat it day after day, so it's clear that a relationship needs a minimum of creativity to work over a longer time. If that creativity is missing, it becomes boring.
That's right, but biologically speaking, it has a different explanation. Since sex (and just about any pleasure, but sex is more powerful for most people) releases dopamine into the brain, and since we are all aware that drugs also "lose their potential" after a while (i.e you need more and more), which also works with dopamine, the brain gets addicted and needs more dopamine for the same pleasure feeling as before (remember that pleasure is just a brain illusion, if the brain doesn't want to give it, no matter how much dopamine, you won't feel it). That's why the word goes "you want more and more" for addiction, because the same amount as before will satisfy you less and less (so to get the same pleasure, you'll need more and more and more etc).

Are we? Aware, I mean. I'm not. Not generally. Not without abuse. Not with tailor-made Žbody "drugs".
If you were right, people would become hooked, have more and ever more and ever more sex, until they would collapse exhaustedly.
Doesn't happen, though. Instead they have less sex.

I think, that is off-topic, though, so don't bother to try and bring in a Death-standard yet again.

You said they would find something else, which is correct. If it will require more to give the same pleasure, then it's time you think of something else. Drugs are more addictive because they are more powerful in pleasure -- hence, you cannot "replace" it with anything. Actually you can, depends on person and detoxication program.

Uncle Doomforge may be old and cranky, but not pretentious, really

Nah, it's just that I'm really allergic to "lack of time" or "lack of interest" in relationships. Those are not just mine experiences, mind you. Among people I know, if someone got the "lack of time/eagerness" problem, it would end by breakup sooner or later. Me not excluded.

So, now I tend to get very suspicious at the first sign of it. Once a little investigation proves it, I turn dump mode on. ~~ Just quickens the inevitable.

Of course I don't know yours cases, guys, so I may be totally wrong. It's hard to judge anything in the internet

Seeing something new and reacting on it is simply easier, because creativity get's an outside input, so-to-speak.


Does that read like I said "it would become boring after a while"? Does that read like I said "they would find something else"?

For me it sounds like you are putting words into my mouth. If you plead not guilty, at least TRY next time to read things with a bit more concentration. At the moment I'm pretty sensible about people doing that.

Much relationship advice is useless because people value different things in their partners. Thus, I have discovered this quiz, which (semi-accurately) describes what your top 10 traits are, and what you seek in a partner. Pretty interesting. I got:
Your dating personality profile:
You matched the following traits:

Intellectual - You consider your mind amongst your assets. Learning is not a chore but a constant search after wisdom and knowledge. You value education and rationality.
Liberal - Politics matters to you, and you aren't afraid to share your left-leaning views. You would never be caught voting for a conservative candidate.
Wealthy/Ambitious - You know what your goals are and you pursue them vigourously. Achieving success is important to you.

Your Top Ten Traits:
1. Intellectual
2. Liberal
3. Wealthy/Ambitious
4. Big-Hearted
5. Funny
6. Practical
7. Romantic
8. Adventurous
9. Traditional
10. Shy

Your date match profile:
You match with women who have following traits:

Liberal - You need a person who has liberal opinions and beliefs. You are engaged by political discussions and would find a liberal viewpoint refreshing in a date.
Intellectual - You seek out intelligence. Idle chit-chat is not what you are after. You prefer your date who can stimulate your mind.
Shy - You are put off by people who are open books. You are drawn to someone who is a bit more mysterious. You want to draw her out of her shell and get to know what she is all about.

Your Top Ten Match Traits:
1. Liberal
2. Intellectual
3. Shy
4. Practical
5. Funny
6. Traditional
7. Adventurous
8. Wealthy/Ambitious
9. Big-Hearted
10. Romantic

You matched the following traits:

Adventurous - Just sitting around the house is not something that appeals to you. You love to be out trying new things and really experiencing life.
Intellectual - You consider your mind amongst your assets. Learning is not a chore but a constant search after wisdom and knowledge. You value education and rationality.
Outgoing - You can liven up any party. You've got a way with people and have little difficulty charming your dates.

Your Top Ten Traits:
1. Adventurous
2. Intellectual
3. Outgoing
4. Sensual
5. Big-Hearted
6. Romantic
7. Athletic
8. Liberal
9. Practical
10. Religious



.... Me, Big-Hearted? lmfao.
Religious should be higher, I'm definitely a religious person (just not a bigot..)
Romantic, so low? Why? I'm dead ****ing romantic.
Practical at the bottom? Don't make me laugh.
Liberal should be at the bottom. Seriously, I don't give a **** about politics. I like history though, especially naval warfare.

I agree with top three, though. Yeah, I'm outgoing even though I hate parties




Your date match profile:
You match with women who have following traits:

Practical - You are drawn to people who are sensible and smart. Flashy, materialistic people turn you off. You appreciate the simpler side of living.
Sensual - You aren't looking for someone who is sexually repressed. You want someone who is adventurous under the covers.
Funny - You consider a good sense of humor a major necessity in a date. If her jokes make you laugh, she has won your heart.

Your Top Ten Match Traits:
1. Practical
2. Sensual
3. Funny
4. Intellectual
5. Athletic
6. Adventurous
7. Shy
8. Big-Hearted
9. Romantic
10. Traditional

If romantic wasn't at the very bottom, I'd agree. I love romantic women and I hate mundane women, so it's completely not accurate. But The rest is more or less decent.




Not the most accurate test around....

You know, I'm sorry to tell you, but sometimes you are far from romantic
From what I see you are very direct and mundane. You don't seek anything or have an overly complex way t make you unhappy

So, yeah, not Romantic...
