That sounds like a pretty good reason to end it.

It's not really productive to should on yourself. Feelings are what they are, there is no should. Telling yourself you shouldn't have feelings doesn't help. It's perfectly okay to feel bothered. About anything. Could be an indicator that action is needed, but it might just be a feeling...

Whereas with my wife (who is my type) I feel the urge 24 hours per day.
Why shouldn't it matter? Does it matter to you if it's man or a woman? Oh, so some things matter. (to me, it doesn't matter what the plumbing is, but I have other preferences) It's taken me forever to get okay with having preferences, because I believed that it 'shouldn't' matter too. If it matters, it matters. There's enough people to choose from, it's perfectly okay to have a preference.

Not really clear on what you're asking, if it was more than wtf.
