The human perspective

26 November 2012, 07:15
Staring at the people walking past, seeing that secret smile, that brisk touch of their hands with someone other than their partner. They look away and smirk.

They smile and with a deliberate effort kisses their partner a "hi I see you" kiss.

What is infidelity? Is it that kiss of hello that goes from a cheek to the lips within a split second? Is it the naughty emoticon with underlying suggestive context when saying a goodnight to a friend of the opposite or sometimes the same sex?

What about the open touching on the shoulders, giggling with a glisten in the eye as they make sure of direct eye contact with the crease of their lips slowly going into a lustful smile?

Infidelity. Do people do it deliberately? Are they always aware of it? Or rather if other people are doing it? While I'm standing here staring at the guy that just touched his female friends hand briskly and smiled, I just wonder... Why are u doing it?

Some say its a build in instinct of the homosapiens, the humans, others say its the emotion whereby you are forever hunting and never satisfied. People are a funny kind of specie that no one will fully understand but all will always think they know answers.

Fact or fiction that's the question at the end of the day. Is what you see really what has conspired behind closed doors, or is it an animalistic behavior pattern formed and evolved through generations of human beings. Is it the lust for the emotional attachment or the sexual attachment or just simply a need to have a need because in return we are just purely needy? But even then, would infidelity by your definition be justified?

People have different perspectives and tend to see what they think and feel in that current state of mind. People are complex. But does infidelity have to be as well? That's the question
