Something that's concerned me for a while now is the idea of a relationship. I've for a long time now seen romance as nothing more than chemicals in the body influencing you to make decisions in the direction of reproduction. So I suppose my question extends to, "Do you believe this to be true?", and if so why bother with relationships? Also, to the fellow INTPs, do you ever feel over-invested in relationships? I always feel like when I enter a relationship I become overwhelmed with emotions as though I've never felt them before, and I hate it more than anything I've ever felt in my life. I absolutely despise limerence because it feels like I've completely neglected my rational side. All in all I just don't really get the point of any of it aside from reproduction. In the case of emotional support I've always considered introspection to be the best remedy, and in the case of reproduction I'm not entirely sure if that interests me. So is the practice of relationships nothing more to me than the fulfillment of my sexual desires, and in that case why bother with going through the seemingly pointless courting rituals?
