And what isn’t good for you

Notes to this poem…

A friend wrote a note on what she called “learned” attraction of social expectations as being very boring, like an emotionless game of mix and match of traits. That is mostly true, except for the fact that at some point, in my opinion, you have to put your head in front of your heart to know what’s good for you and what’s not good for you. I’m not touting natural attraction as being all lust here. I definitely think you can definitely love purely without lust, but some traits some may love that may not be lusty, may still not be good for you.

An example of the above would be that I love women who are just bubbly and flutter about, having interests in all kinds of things and such. But if she can’t have a side to be serious about things in life for which you have to be serious, that’s a bad attraction as far as I’m concerned. I’ve met more than a few of such women, and men, too, though I’m not attracted to men but just to state the same apply to both genders equally.
