The need to change
I had lunch with a friend yesterday and we got to talking about men and why we even want a man in our lives.. This comes back to an earlier post I made, where I questioned why humans feel the need to pair up. Other than the obvious make babies or have sex thing, that is.
In the course of this conversation, I said to my friend that I felt we were both destined to be single for the (dramatic pause) remainder of our days. And later on in the day I thought about that statement a bit more.
For all I said it in jest initially, maybe some women are simply not destined to be one half of a happy (or other!) coupling?
Maybe some women will always find themselves becoming bored or disinterested .. or whatever adjective you want to use.. when paired up with someone for an extensive period of time?
I wonder, is there some link to the way society has changed, going on here too?
After all, gone are the days we’d get a job in the local dept. store and work there until we got our gold watch at retirement. Nowadays it’s common (almost expected..) for people to have multiple jobs throughout their career.
Could there be a link to the need for stimulation, an enjoyment of change .. a need for change .. and the types of relationships some of us end up having .. ?
