Why do men get so attached when you have sex with them?
I call this ASS (Attachment Sex Syndrome).
ASS is a condition in which people (specifically referring here to the male gender), feel a need to make sexual relations a heart-warming experience. Such men attach meaning to hook-ups in an attempt to create some emotional significance to the "connection" (which is often purely physical). Men suffering from this disorder are not the ones you want to have a one-night stand with ladies, they cannot simply get laid for fun.
They suffer from Attachment Sex Syndrome.
I believe that sex is important, but not necessarily meaningful. True, sex and attachment can go hand-in-hand -- but they often don't. Believe me, those that expect that sex means "we're connected on a soul level," will often be sourly disappointed. Plus, they're often annoying to their partner who's just hoping for a good, carefree time.
Let's face it, too much ASS can get in the way. Especially when we just want to go out and enjoy a little lovin' without all the mess of a "meaningful connection."
The best cure for an ASS problem: Don't make more of sex than sex.
And remember. . . pleasure is good, even without ASS.
