- To men, sex is directly connected to love. Men are drawn to a woman’s body as one is drawn to embrace the beauty of a sunset on the ocean’s horizon. Men fantasize about women’s bodies because they think there is one woman who will finally fulfill them tangibly.
- To women, sex is an outgrowth of love. Woman are drawn to a man as one is drawn to live out an epic story that ends with “happily ever after.” Women fantasize about men’s romance because they think there is one man who will finally fulfill them emotionally.
- Both are made to compliment each other: the commitment and emotion of the woman; the affirmation and tangibility of the man.
There are men who selfishly just want continuous sex and there are women who selfishly just want emotional fulfillment. However, we’ll do well to remember that these people probably started out seeking the above points and couldn’t find it, so they gave up and tried to settle for the latter. Even more importantly, it is better to realize that none of these traits can be filled by an “other half” that is out there. All people are imperfect; and it’s only the common goal of God that couples can all find eternal fulfillment.
