It might make the music theirs. He's a romantic. He's going to eventually, hopefully, find a kindred spirit. Everyone's different.

Somehow I doubt it would be boring.

As someone who had a wild time being single and also has a very satisfying marriage, I have to say that I am VERY worried about your long term happiness. You simply put too much on a pedestal, be it sex or love or women. The fact of the matter is that sometimes sex is an unbelievable connecting moment with another person. Other times its simply a lot of fun. Sometimes romance seems like it can change the color of the sky other times it seems like the hardest thing in the world.

BUT the big thing I am concerned about is how you talk about women. I love my wife. We have been together for 8 years. We have been married for 5 years in May, but the simple fact of the matter is that my wife has strengths and weaknesses just like every other person you meet. If you can't see a woman you are romantic with in that light, then you are objectifying her as much as a man who only looks at her for sex. You have to learn how to let people simply be who they are.

That's much more satisfying anyways. I love the fact that I know my wife and she knows me. We are at the same time impressed and not impressed with one another. We are partners.
Women deserve pedestals though. Varitek deserves a pedestal in some man's eye some day. If you are special you deserve to be looked at in a special way. It is the least you can give them for the wonders they bring. Women deserve that kind of respect.

I am cynnical/unromantic/happily single now, but I had a long period of intense romance that I then got sick of and hence my current condition. And at this point almost a year after the relationship ended I'd be happy to date, even to get serious except 1) I am currently having lots of fun catching guys, as alluded to before and 2) I am graduating and bailing in 3 months so no point really. I hated long distance.

No one's actually ever read any of my real lyrics, or heard my real songs.
It was still "you" in those assignments so it was your art.

Why don't you ask the women here if they would like to be put up on a pedestal by the person she loves or if she would like to be loved and accepted for the person she REALLY is not the person you wish she was. Ask them.

He's not saying they shouldn't be put on a pedestal, but he's worried about your definition of them being on a pedestal.

As a woman, I have to say that there's gotta be a line between respect and illusion. I'm well aware of my own faults, that's perhaps why I put so much pressure on myself. If some else had me on a pedestal my insecurities would take over because I'd feel like I could never meet those expectations, thus really turning the relationship downwards.

I'd be much more inclined to engage with a man who saw me for who I am. One who did not see me as perfect, but rather as imperfect, and accepted my imperfections and limitations, which are really what make us so human. I'd appreciate someone who saw the human in me, as opposed to the goddess in me.

It is them. It is a celebration of them. It isn't who I wish they were it is who they actually are. It is pedestal of what they are.
