    Frank, you're onto something. Perhaps marriage, after all, is socially constructed. My intellectual side believes it, yet at some point, I almost give in to the idea of being able to care for someone with whom I share values and convictions.

    It almost seems as though just because it's not natural does not mean we've got to reject it, or that nothing good comes of it. I know I come, and it's good.

In the end, we agreed that love, no matter gay or straight, still carries the same emotions. The book is called "Come Love With Me and Be My Life." Check it out. Another sample of that poet's work - and the discussion here:

    "Two halves have no choice but to join, and yes, that makes a whole. But two wholes, when they coincide, that's beautiful. That's love."
    Yes. Going into a relationship not because you need them, but because you want them.

    I can think of a few of my friends who have made this into a reality.

    Hehe, I am chilled. I think it was the combination of lack of sleep and lots of Red Bull earlier.

    I hear that's the stats for ENTJs in total.

    For women it's twice as pessimistic.

    I find that I only work in extremes. I either give no love or all my love. I can't seem to figure out how to give just enough love.
    I've got much of a similar experience and feeling about it. They attribute it to our tertiary feeling, but I think the concept does injustice to us. Still, the feeling varies.
