    That's not what you asked. If you have to have sex with someone to fall in love with them you're likely going to be having a lot of sex without love.

    Love normally comes first so I do not believe they occur together I believe they occur separately

    Looks pretty absolute here, which is the quote I responded to with that statement. Mind you that wasn't the first time, and certainly wasn't the last time as demonstrated by:

    Oh look more absoluteness!

    If so then why afraid to provide the best example?

    Normal is a statistical value, noting frequency within a given population. At no point has anyone argued that the two occurring together is not normal. Your asssertion of romance and sex being linked to provide the best chance for survival, presumably by procreation, is disproved by history. Marriage for love is a recent development, historically speaking, and until it became ass mainstream as it is now, marriage and procreation were not linked to romantic attraction. For that matter, sexual attraction wasn't even considered for marriage, and by extension, procreation.

    "You keep using that word (queer), but I don't think it means what you think it means." Actually I am not sure you are using your intended definition in the proper context. So for the sake of edification, provide us with the specific definition that you are referring to. We did show earlier in the thread that there were multiple meanings as the focus on how it is used has shifted over the recent decades. After that you then need to show how it is a neagative (a subjective value, but give it a shot anyway) for humanity. I already understand that you believe so, but that is not proof. History already shows the population will increase without romantic or sexual attraction being part of the procreation process.

    But we still keep coming back to the base question, which you seem to keep running away from. Are they linked? That is to say does one fail to exist if the other does not exist? Or is there a one way dependence only? B required A to exist, but A does not require B to exist, even if they are typically both present. And again to illustrate how two things can be normally found together but are not linked, we go back to marriage and procreation. Marriage can exist without procreation, and procreation can exist without marriage. Thus they are not linked, not dependent. If your claim is that romantic attraction and sexual attraction are linked, are dependent upon one another, then why afraid to provide actual evidence?

    silly gibberish!! love may or may not come first and love may change with years of marriage, love, and or sex and children etc. Do you have any idea what your point is?

    rat populations increase too but the power of love is unique to humans and gives a huge boost to procreation and a superior species.

    Queer is not LGBTIA or hetero. You are great example of queer!

    obviously procreation with sexlove is far more likely to succeed than procreation with only sex.

    Yes if you only fall in love with someone at the moment you have sex with them than you don't really love someone before.
