For me it's not the actual sex, it's the time component. I tend to invest large amounts of time in the person I'm dating, reducing my creativity. I am finding myself much more creative now that I am single than I was a few months ago. I have more free time to persue intellectual interests as well as more free brain cycles not taken up with concerns for the other person that I can use to organize my thoughts.

Perhaps my problem is that I have not found anyone who _truely_ inspires me.

But I have had no luck finding someone of the opposite sex with similar interests/memeset. Perhaps someone should start up an extropian dating service ;)

BTW, I'm 21. I should start dating 41 year olds...yes, that's the answer...
