2:  Why do you hurt?

1:  Because I love her.

2:  Do you love her?  You could have done something a long time ago if you loved her.

1:  I was dead inside.

2:  Ah bless.  Don’t make excuses, you want what you can’t have – is that not true?

1:  No I hurt because of losing the hoped for happiness I might have had.

2:  You are confusing emotions, thinking with your dick.  You’ve felt like this before haven’t you?

1:  Yes.  More than once.

2:  You’re just repeating the same old patterns then aren’t you?

1:  Yes probably, but maybe I am because I didn’t learn before.

2:  Ha, bullshit.  Shit happens, you think you’ve learnt something?

1:  I’m aware of this conversation.

2:  I’m you, dickhead.  Have this “conversation” out loud on the tube, see what response you get.

1:  I might get a couple of extra seats.

I know that your voice is interchangeable with the madness happening in the world.

2:  What’s that supposed to mean!  Wake up, it’s survival of the fittest.  Obey the rules or be just another of the losers cast aside.  I can help you.

1:  Maybe you mean it, but you say the same thing to everybody else as well, resulting in everyone using and abusing each other for the survival of you.

2:  Nobody gives a shit about you.  If you’re too stupid to understand that then you’re just another of nature’s mistakes.

Tell me, what is love?

1:  A sense of feeling connected with another, wanting the other to flourish and to feel joy themselves.

2:  Bullshit.  It’s a chemical response in your brain evolved to make you bond for the purposes of rearing children.  The science is there if you are prepared to look.

You’re a disposable puppet to your genes.

1:  I don’t understand the unknowable ultimate causes of things and neither does scientific knowledge.  What I do know is that if more people felt connected to each other and loved each other then the world would be a much better place.

2:  Women seek to manipulate and control you.  They will prod and poke to see your reactions.  It’s all perfectly understandable, they want someone dedicated to them who will do their bidding.  Love and sex are excellent ways to achieve results.

1:  I think that women are more likely to get extreme when they feel they’re not receiving the love they have given.  But generally everyone is crying out in the dark to be loved – men and women.

2:  Love, love all we need is love – it’s shite.  You’re here to be somebody, to take what you can before it’s too late.  By all means, pretend to love if it means getting women, that’s a good tactic.

1:  It’s also callous and hateful.

2:  People who desire love want to be adored, admired, pleasured.  A little bit of chemical voodoo and that’s your love.  It soon goes when the chemicals wear off, when things aren’t as pleasurable as before, when the compliments turn into insults.  I can get you better drugs than that if you want.

1:  Sometimes with the need to be loved comes an illness that is one way, conditional and with high expectations for personal reward.  It’s not love.

But all things change, the illness can fade into full health.

2:  A leopard doesn’t change its spots.

1:  You’re getting boring.

2:  You disappoint me.  You are not survival material.

1:  Somehow that doesn’t matter any more. 

2:  You will gradually rot away to nothing.  And no-one will give a shit.

1:  Oh well.  I feel a bit lighter.  And you’ve helped me answer the main question.  Yes I do love her because I want her to be fulfilled and happy, even if she finds that with somebody else.

2:  Twat!

1:  I would rather live in my world than yours.  Cheers.
