Disillusioned online dating
Online dating has also become a terrain for a new — and often upsetting — gender struggle. But women's exercise of that right, Kaufmann argues, gets exploited by the worst kind of men.
And online dating offers just such chances for us to have fast and furious sexual relationships in which commitment is a no-no and yet quantity and quality can be positively rather than inversely related.
Kaufmann suggests that we have to reverse out of the cul de sac of sex for sex's sake and recombine it with love once more to make our experiences less chilly but also less clouded by romantic illusions.
We are doomed, perhaps, to be unsatisfied creatures, whose desires are fulfilled only momentarily before we go on the hunt for new objects to scratch new itches.
