Nor did I mention capitulation.

...for emotional placation is anti-social?
Please show where I mentioned placation.

I'm almost afraid to ask but, how did you get there?
Simple enough, I didn't.

Again, simply put, I think it is common to date, mate with, people who meet at least some of one's needs for emotional connection and bonding, kisses and sex, acts of service, words of love, dates, talks trivial or profound, eye contact, cuddles, laughter, sharing culture (be it TV sports, hikes, music or fine art), eating together, doing household chores ones doesn't have a taste or talent for (and vice versa), etc etc.

You don't date and mate for these reasons?
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
