Haha, thanks for that analysis. How unexpected and insightful. Your premise is mostly correct, but your conclusion ain't) I'm extremely clingy with a few people who I have crushes on and idealise at a given time (2 at the moment). It's generally very short lived ~1 month and always women, haha. On the other hand, I'm quite popular with friends and acquiescence, get invited to lots of parties but rarely accept (goal oriented, ain't got time for that!), I haven't tried to fall in love with or done some cruel socially experiment on. On the other hand, my instinctive drive tor respond to this may be telling of some degree of insecurity about my social status...
