Romance is a self-interested bio-urge that spreads diseases and strains our environment via human reproduction.
Love is material or spiritual generosity, philanthropy, volunteerism, educating and learning big ideas, environmentalism, human rights and responsibilities, and informed dissent from destructively delusional crowds. These exhibit care about all, not just the one we want to use to satiate a biological urge.
And why would you get married to someone you are sexually attracted to? When sexual attraction wears off, you are left to reconcile personality differences. Romantic dissipation often results in resentment, fighting, and emotional or physical separation.
“Sexual attraction is an involuntary hormonal response involving an increase in neurotrophins and testosterone.” – Bones, season 3
Celebrate onanism, not romance. Romance is a folly of the mind to get what the body wants. Romance reduces enormous aggregate human potential for environmentalism and grand humanitarianism to just two self-absorbed people.
Fall in love with big ideas instead.
