I just don't understand it. It seems to always happen to me - but I want to get some feedback from others. Why is it that we are attracted, or want someone we can not have; rather it be because of personal/physical reasons?
slowcore saidOnly 10% of the guys out there are available to other guys, and of those, they have to be interested. Wanting something you can't have is more likely that wanting something you can.
Yogi4Life saidIts actually a survival instinct innately built into the fabric of our psyche. Before modern conveniences, hunting and gatherers were mandated to always look and want more to forage and fend for themselves. Instinctually this makes sense. The content and lazy person didn't have a home and McDonalds to fall back on. If they weren't always seeking more, they'd have predators and be exposed to the elements.
I know we aren't cave men but this is the innate instinct we've inherited.. Therefore, its somewhat impossible not always want more. Some have explained this is why Capitalism is so incredibly successful- that it aligns with this primordial instinct in the contemporary era.
