Interesting comments all.
funky_derek, your posts kind of ruin any romantic notions about love & sex. It's all in the genes, ain't it?
I guess I'm one of those that tries to "cheat" the system by aiming too high. Then I'm crushed by the rejection. Sort of the Beethoven syndrome, from what I know he always had these wild crushes on women that were unavailable to him. I need to bring my sights down to around 7 or so instead of 10.
I guess the cold reality of it all is that, just like certain men are naturals at a sport, or a skill, some men are naturals at sex and women. I think it is something that they and the women they attract know on an intuitive level. And no amount of societal constraint is going to change the fact that certain men have sex with every woman they can including your wife.
Xander, put me in the agnostic camp too. I was reading a book called "The Whole Shebang" and the author in discussing this issue made the succinct comment that there is no possible way to disprove the existence of God.
