Yet another excerpt from my new favorite book
"In the instant intimacy of sex, you feel loved, appreciated, value, and wanted. No wonder you make the mistake of believing this is really love when you should be telling yourself, This is just sex. Sex is an intense physical initmacy, and with someone you barely know, that is all it is and all it can ever be. If you remind yourself that your partner's intensity probably has more to do with his own need to be loved than with any love he may profess for you, it will be easier to avoid making more of the experience than it is. This is not to say that he may not be attracted to you or that he may not enjoy being with you at that moment. He might feel these things, and so might you. But these feelings apply only to that moment, and they tell you nothing about your long-term prospects."
