Metro friendship

Metro friendship is a superficial friendship in which friends may not know that it is superficial; they often consider themselves to be very good friends, because it's the best friendship they can have in their kind of lifestyle.

These are generally friendships between people who don't have much social life outside their corporate workplace where they spend 10-12 hrs a day (and the rest of the time is slept off or spent in front of TV), and on weekends become crazy zombies with booze or do some such shit with their "friends".

Needless to say, I derived this term from "metro lifestyle", which doesn't have scope for deeper human connections.

Unregulated sexual marketplace

A society in which sexual pursuits and activities of its members are not governed by religious norms or traditional values. Modern urban world is mostly transformed into one.

Mass media (mostly television), technological "developments" and consequent changes in lifestyles are major factors contributing to washing away of traditional values; whereas scientific advances have long challenged religious worldviews. Although religions still have strong foothold, they hardly have any influence on the lifestyles of urbanites.

In an unregulated sexual marketplace, romantic love will be a disease, marriage and family will be virtually non-existent. There will be few winners while most people will be losers. And even those who win will have no peace of mind since sexual competition is always on.

Unregulated sexual marketplace is a nightmare of human existence.

Sexual marketplace (world)

Since life is fundamentally about spreading one's genes through reproduction, reproduction is the primary goal of life. (Rational beings may not have it as a goal consciously, but in Nature's design it is the only goal.)

Sexuality is a resource that women possess which men have to compete for (a facet of survival of the fittest game). A woman would be naturally selected by evolution to mate with a man who comes up as the best bet for the spread of their genes. That gives rise to market mechanism. And since the pursuit of sex is central to all of human life, the world of human beings can be viewed as sexual marketplace.

How market forces work in the domain of human sexuality is brilliantly explained in Sexual Economics by Roy F. Baumeister
