Sex and love can make you nuts

Swee and I had a heated argument tonight during dinner. Halfway through I had a random thought in my head: “Why am I putting up with this? I am not even getting sex for it!”

On the drive home, it got me thinking. Is sex the great equaliser? Do you put up with bad behaviour in a relationship because the sex is good? How many of you out there had stayed in a doomed relationship just a bit longer than necessary because the sex was good? Did you throw away logic because she was hot or because he rocked your world? 😉

Personally, I don’t put up with bad behaviour in exchange for sex. I know that no matter how much I may want it, meaningless sex is just dull. And in the end, the bad behaviour is still there.

While we are on the topic, did you hear about the married woman astronaut who attempted to kidnap and hurt a woman she thought was her rival for the affections of a male astronaut she worked with?

An astronaut drove 900 miles and donned a disguise to confront a woman she believed was her rival for the affections of a space shuttle pilot, police said. She was arrested Monday and charged with attempted kidnapping and other counts.

U.S. Navy Capt. Lisa Nowak, 43, who flew last July on a shuttle mission to the international space station, was also charged with attempted vehicle burglary with battery, destruction of evidence and battery. She was denied bail.

Police said Nowak drove from her home in Houston to the Orlando International Airport to confront Colleen Shipman.

It just goes to show that you can be the most intelligent person in the world – seriously, read her bio! – but love (or is it lust?) can still make you go nuts.

    You forgot to add the part of the story where this Astronaut woman wore diapers so she wouldn’t have to stop during her 900 mile drive to Orlando.

    Yes, sometimes good sex can definitely zap the old brain cells. I mean, what exactly was she thinking? It sounds like this is simply another case of “fatal attraction” to me.

    In the long run, was the public humiliation really worth it all? I would have dumped his cheating ass like a hot pancake.

    No man is worth a 900 mile diaper ride. And no love is worth murdering for.

    shelly: hahah err yeah. That’s true dedication (obsession) right there.

    Actually I don’t know if the male astronaut was reciprocating her feelings, and so he can’t really be cheating. Seems to me that it was all one way, and that he and the other woman were more of an “established” couple.

    But you are right, love isn’t worth killing or dying for.

    Yep, sex and love/lust sure can make even the sanest of us go totally nutty!! I’ve had some really nice, smart, normal friends go totally crazy over some guy that was just a total dropkick/loser! e.g. my nice, smart, sensible, attractive stockbroker friend who was a typical girl from a “nice” family falling HARD for a drug dealing raver from ‘the wrong side of the tracks’ who was a total player that treated her like shit. She took him back after he cheated on her numerous times…she went totally crazy for this guy; calling from ‘private number’ to check up on him, constantly checking her phone, she couldn’t relax at work or on a night out because she was afraid he might be with some other girl. Yep, love suuure does make us crazy sometimes! 😛

    girlstar7: oh boy that is so dramatic. That’s a plot right out of a soap opera. As friends, it’s very hard to see them like this but they won’t be open to advice when they are like this. Best we could do is just support her when she falls down.

    Guys, did it ever occur to you that she’s mentally ill? Mental illness cannot justify any murder attempt, but for God’s sake, you guys and the media should stop picking on mentally ill people.
