Here is a little movie I dig.

It has some educational value for those wanting to understand fallacies and rational thinking.


I think I want a raccoon coat!

I also hate most perfumes, especially musk.  There are, however, fruit perfumes that I like, but very few women wear them.  The first one I remember was a girl I started working around that smelled like strawberries.  Yum!

Maybe it's for the best. Had you explained it she might be really upset more. I think people get used to their natural odor even if it is offensive to others. Most natural odors are agreeable to me, and I hate perfumes. I find it hard to have sex if you are stirring up some odor. Two examples of that are perfumes and somebody who is not clean. Usually you know either of them very well.

A few years ago when the "Charlie" perfume was popular my step daughter wore it. You could tell the minute she entered the room because of it. Also, a friend of mine and I were watching a pretty girl we knew from an apartment balcony one day. My friend says "there she goes." My reply was "and you can smell her all the way up here." It was that damn "Charlie" perfume.

The trick to perfume is finding one that compliments you, but everyone also has their very own unique odor.

LOL, Michael, smells, some which even perfume won't make the attraction, especially some female perfumes.

Had a girlfriend whose natural scent was repulsive to me, even after she smothered herself with perfume, which was a pity, since she was very intelligent and visually, she was perfect in every regard, awesome face and absolutely superb body, but a smell that caused me to keep my distance, even when we were swimming.

From what I learned later, it appears that likely we were genetically incompatible.

The reason I thought of her is recently my sister went to a school reunion where this girl's mother was there and stated that her daughter still regrets my breaking up with her.

I guess I really should have explained why I broke it off.

Instead, I just left and moved to another city.


That made me feel awful.

I was very thoughtless back then.

Love is called many things that it is not. It is possible to fall in or out of "love." For the most part, love is a decision. That decision is helped greatly by smells and naturally occurring chemicals common to the human being.

Yes Richard,

That pair bonding is accomplished by a combination of brain chemicals that are generated by warmth and touch, ie. Oxytocin.

This is why they introduce oxytocin to mothers during child birth, so as to prevent post natal rejection, which occurs if such normal attachment processes fail to function.

Oxytocin is also one of the main chemicals that keep married couples together for life, so it is also a long term bonding influence which is generated by hugs and kisses.

It is also known as the "trust drug".

Some religious groups spray it among the audience when their religious leader is giving a sermon so the audience unwittingly feel trust in the speaker.

Insane isn't it!

I would argue that love is not a fallacy but quite real, sometimes.  A strong pair bond had to evolve between mother and father to keep them together long enough for the young to mature and become independent.  Baby humans are the most helpless of all nature's creatures.  A strong pair bond is wired deep in our DNA.
