You Don't Need To Be In Love

I think it's a commen view from a lot of people that the meaning of life is to find a partner and produce offspring. Many think that without having a partner, you're life is not as worthy as someone elses, and therefore they focus their whole life and most of their thoughts about being in love and thinking about romance.
But I don't think this is correct. I think it's entirely possible to live a happy life, and have a totally worth-while existance without love in your life. You can still have a great, important purpose in your life if you don't have kids and a husband or wife.
Think about being a nun. ( :D ) Nuns live their whole lives as virgins. Most of those women ain't even had their first kiss! And they're happy, in most cases. At least, if they're not, they choose not to become a nun! Simple, I think.
So I'm gonna say this bluntley. (if you haven't had the special cuddle talk with your mummies and daddies yet, look away now).
Sex is not all their is to life. Getting laid is not always the most important part of someone's life. There's a whole world full of things that can happen, and an entire universe with worth while things to discover and/or expierience.
Love takes over many people's lives. Love is what they apparently 'need'. But you don't. There is nothing forcing you to have sex, and nothing forcing you to have a boyfriend or a girlfriend, and no rules that say what you should and shouldn't do with your life.
There is too much pressure on people to focus their lives on being 'in love' and as a result, people's minds and views are distorted, and they're made to think there's nothing else worth doing. But there definately, definately is. Love is by no means meaningless. Don't get me wrong I'm no monk myself, but I don't agree that being in love is the most amazing thing that can happen to you!
I want a wife, sure. I'd personally like kids. But there are a lot of people that don't. And that's good on them. It doesn't mean they've done nothing with their lives by any means! Basically, as the title says, you don't need to be in love.
