A world with no love or sex 

I’m beginning to wish there was no such thing as romantic love or sex. It seems like it rarely goes well. The world would run more smoothly if we just had brains – no emotions and no bodies.

I was in a 14 year relationship which was great for 7 years, and then things gradually went south for the next 7. 

Now, I’ve spent the past year dating a few men who (for whatever reason) just didn’t work out.

Lately I’ve been thinking of my ex and feeling sad again. Why did we only get a certain number of good years? I’ve heard of people having a good relationship that lasts 35 years. How come we only got 7 years great, 7 years good-sliding-into-not-talking?

I’m dating a guy who’s not really “it” for me, but he seems too nice to break up with; and he does have feelings for me. I could so easily wind up with him out of inertia. I hate dating and “looking”; and there isn’t really a good reason to break up with him. And I feel like I should appreciate him, instead of being spoiled and wanting something that doesn’t exist. 

I wish there was no such thing as love or sex. Then I could be perfectly happy and contented with my job, my friends, my life. I’m luckier than a lot of people; I have a pretty good life. Why couldn’t I be one of those people who just don’t care about love or sex?
