I'm not sure how sidetracked I want to get delving into the epistemic requirements for comparison and whether something being empirically verifiable qualifies it as something I have a comparison for; I was just going to share a small something about myself, and if I go too far down that road, I'll likely share far more than I bargained for. I will, however, give an analogous case to try to show my point. Suppose there's a man living in Austria named David Johnson, and he has red hair. I've never met him, and all of my initial evidence of his existence is purely testimonial and devoid of any real particular description; I only know what I've said so far. Here's something that's true; I can go and empirically verify that he exists, if I so choose. Here's something that's still not true: I have any sort of idea what kind of person he is, or which of my friends he most closely resembles. I know that I can go verify fundamental particles; that doesn't mean that I have anything with which to compare them to, or any basis for such a comparison. [Anything beyond that I'll be happy to get into via PM, I just don't want to hijack the thread beyond what's already been done.]
tl;dr: I once bit a moose's sister.
Here's what you can actually make tests for and through rigorous testing find evidence for:
I didn't have my first relationship until I was 20. It wasn't love. (Well, I loved some of the things we did, but... no.) I didn't actually feel much intimacy toward another person until I was 23. It lasted three years, and it's been gone since then; less than 10% of my life has been spent in a relationship I can honestly say was built on anything more than just the superficial. Still, I tend to agree with both sides here; on the one hand, it's a meaningless concept, not so obviously worth chasing after. On the other, I can say from experience that if you're ever lucky enough to experience something that resonates as love from your perspective, it'll be a better feeling than what you have now -- and that's definitely worth striving towards.
I have nothing to compare quarks or electrons to, but I believe they're there. Even still, it's silly to say that there's nothing to compare it to; even if sesquipedalian has yet to be the recipient of love, I'm sure he's felt it toward something. When I was 19, I loved XTC's "Skylarking" (still do, and always will). "Skylarking" has never grown arms and hugged me, but if it had, that'd be roughly equivalent to the feeling being discussed, I'd wager.
Exactly, they're not ready to let their ideals go for integral purposes.
Just because you haven't had a relationship before doesn't mean you can't feel love for anyone. Love will always find you, especially when you stop looking. Waiting isn't negative. Live life, go out, get drinks, hang with friends, family, do whatever you love. Drown yourself in Music even. Whatever it is, make yourself happy.
Like I said, desperation isn't a good thing!
Stop being Stubborn and Immature! Love will find you when you least expect it! You are younger than me even, you have a ton of time to figure out who you will spend the rest of your life with. You also have a lot of time to meet people.
Reading your profile, I'd change it a bit. Write about music and what makes you happy. Write positive things about yourself. Tell people on here what you are looking to get out of the site. You shouldn't have said if you're this and if you're that, move along. That won't get people interested in you!
You need to have a positive outlook on life or no one will want to be with you! Please trust in me! I have a lot of experience with relationships and my best friend Luke (99_extralives) will confirm that.
I've only written that to reflect the experience I had and I don't expect anything to come out of it seeing that many people who do find it offensive and felt that it was wrong in their case would actually bother to correct. It's only arrogant when people really don't have anything to say and I'm not the kind of person that can tolerate hypocrisy of such sorts. Also, didn't you say that love was going to come to me and that I should wait? Why do you talk about another criteria now?
Relationships aren't quite simply a waiting game, people actually like a certain kind of personality and I know when I'm not welcome amongst the majority of the population when people have terrifyingly stupid corollaries and dichotomies. Majority of the individuals I meet find me too intense or desperate when I talk to them mainly because it makes me seem like a "trying too hard" sort of person because I'm constantly self-improving and trying to put higher goals for myself in enhancing my abilities but here's the thing, majority of the people are lowly aspiring degenerates with quite simply no point in living, some are a complete miracle in their ability to actually formulate proper sentences and breathe properly. I'm a man of many interests which are expanding even more and pursued daily but even then people can't really bother to give me a proper reply or anything, rude profile summary or not, I don't give two shits about it and will do as I please considering they're quite simply not in a position to lead.
