on topic and on the other hand, i happen to need someone who matches my sex drive. i wouldn't be happy in a relationship where being intimate with each other was not a top priority.
i agree with this. i mean, it's pretty haughty to place your own value judgements in such a patronizing way on how other people approach relationships, when the topic is just, what do you look for in a partner. speaking from personal experience, sex can be a deal-breaker, and i feel it's a need that can be just as vital in a healthy relationship as emotional connection or iono, intellectual stimulation. it shouldn't be a surprise that people have different wants, and that some people have sex on top of their list.
i'm assuming we're talking about consensual sex and relationships here, as well? obviously there's a huge problem when the other partner feels pressured into having sex in order to sustain the relationship, but i feel that's a separate, deeper issue than just wanting to be with someone with a huge sex drive.
