"Human nature is constructed so that it gives affection most readily to those who seem to demand it the least."

or is it that human nature is constructed so that it tends not to demand affection from those who seem most willing to give it???

probably both ways... though i don't think it's a universal sentiment, and i don't necessarily chalk it up to "human nature"...

i think we just pay attention to these things when it hurts.

and when it hurts, nothing else matters.

Ummm... I think it depends on how you were raised and your own self-image/worth.
