New Cow vs. Old Cow

So this theory is off the wall, but I wanted to run it by you all and see what you think.

It's the same idea as men spreading wild oats, I guess. In some cow farm up North (don't ask where, I don't know), there was a bull who mated with a cow. The next day, they tried to make the bull and cow mate again, and it didn't work. So for several weeks, they tried different times of the day, different feeds, and so on to make the female cow more attractive. They even went as far as dousing it in phermones (the chemicals that attract you to someone) to make the bull and cow mate again. Nothing worked.

Finally, they just brought in a different cow. The mating was a sucess! This made the scientists wonder, is it really that the bull can differentiate between the two cows? Is it really that once you have had "old cow," you cannot go back and must go onto a "new cow?" What if there is no new cow avaliable then what?

So this occured to me that it may be true in humans as well. It's why long-term relationships break up. After a while, if you are truely not compatible, no matter how you dress it up or down, gain or lose weight, douse yourself in "chemicals" (or in our case perfume and lingerie), the bull will no longer be interested?

Is it really that all males of all species must spread their seed to some degree? Furthermore, is it that once you have spread your seed to a certain "cow" and moved on, you cannot return? I wonder if this is why couples who break up and then get back together rarely stay together. It kinda reminds me of divorce.

Once divorced, the cynicism cap has been placed on your head and there is no turning back. Now I know there are some out there going, "Wait a minute, that's not true in MY case!" Ok asswipe, we are talking in general here, now sit down and SHADDUP! Where was I? Oh yea...

To me it seems that this cow issue has simply hi-lighted to me the fact that some men, no matter how fine a woman may be: mentally, physically, emotionally, whatever, that even if you fooled around with her once, you usually must go forward and not look back. This goes for women too, I am an equal opportunity insulter here!

I know looking back now, that there are several guys who I just didn't feel like towing the line with anymore so I cut them loose. Now of course I realize that these guys were perhaps the great love of my life and I couldn't find them with The White Pages sitting in front of me! I also, somehow, even though I perhaps regret my actions, do not see myself getting back together with any of them. It's more of a yearning for the happiness of the past...I think.

Is there really some sort of programming that makes us unable to go back to that "old cow" no matter how good she (OR HE!) was the first time around? I say absolutely.

Two bulls - one old and one young were standing on the top of a hill overlooking a lush pasture. Dozens of cows were grazing below.

Young bull looked over at old bull, saying "Lets run down there and get us one of those heifers..."

Old bull looked back at the youngster, replying, "Lets walk down, and get them all."

Maturity helps - but doesn't prohibit those feelings of saving the human race by seeding genetic prodigy with as many women as possible.

I've had these feelings myself. Some genome somewhere is crossed up?

I definately agree with you on this one Red. There is something in the wiring of the male species. In my case I could never return to any of the old cows, some have hurt me, some I have hurt, and we have all changed. Nothing would be the same. Besides why would we want what WAS when we are looking for what WILL BE?

There was an Ashley Judd/Hugh Jackman (sigh) movie called Someone Like You that had, as part of its premise, a very similar cow theory. Just randomly mentioning it.

Since we're sweepingly generalizing today I'll toss out my piece of theory. For me, the LTR often goes south because many men, (not all, so sit BACK DOWN, like the lady said, and SHADDUP still) after about five-seven years just lose interest in a way that I do not understand. And maybe they can't even "help it" although I'm not even sure what I'm saying here. In fact, this is something I may blog about soon.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

I think once it's over, it's over.
Usually, too much crap has passed under the bridge and some things, although maybe forgiven, can not be forgotten.
During most break-ups, horrible things are done and said. Once THAT happens, there's no going back, for me. If the break-up was more of a "just wandering away from each other" thing, then, maybe there'd be a chance.
