Well, the direction of this thread has a life of its own, right? So you want to take it back to an original post idea?
Well, what do you have to say about it?
Maybe I am not old enough to tell you the answer, except to say, that when my Dad looked at my Mom, he saw a friend, a partner, a pal, a trusted comrade-in-arms, he saw someone with feelings and emotions and desires, all of which he wanted to come true.
Without my glasses, up close, I only see a moving blur; but when I was young, I saw every pore, pimple and crevice.
Perhaps, when you are young, your biological drive may move you one way, when you are me, your drive moves you in another way, long since past lust -- I can make love all day and all night, but it is merely playful great fun, right? So what fulfills you?
I have already completed my basic biological function: I have successfully raised a viable next generation.
I do not need a prostitute, I do not need to sample every form of candy in the store, I do not need a race-car, I do not need, nor do I particularly care for a lot of such meaningless things.
For many things of this world, I have already had the great privelage and opportunity, so that I feel I have 'already been there, and done that'.
Perhaps, I do want to be understood and appreciated and have someone guard my deepest secrets with the same regard and trust in which I would secret theirs. Maybe, someday you will also learn that love is not skin deep, infatuation and lust are.
Is there something wrong with being sentimental? Is it more human then, just to be lustful?
