Is company sought for the pleasure found in others,
or the pleasure found in ones self in the company of others?
Finding pleasure in ones self without finding pleasure in company
is, in the eyes of others "anti-social", and lacking "having a life".
Finding pleasure in others without finding pleasure in ones self
is, in the eyes of others "being needy" and "boring".
Where then does finding pleasure in ones self in the company of
plesant others fit in?
Is this good or is it being dependant and forming attachments?
One member receives and gives pleasure from receiving,
the other gives and receives pleasure from giving.
To gain pleasure from giving one must be pleasantly received,
to gain pleasure from receiving one must find what is given pleasant.
However receiving something that a person finds pleasant to give,
before it is given is also pleasant - but less common.
In the company of others what then is given and what received?
Do you give or receive company?
This ones a tricky one :)
