With that attitude, you'll almost be divorced before you got married - unless your wife was a golddigger, but who wants one of those ?

I'm colder than cold..... some people say I don't feel.........................
I cry when i watch Peta videos. I need to unsub from their channel. But i could have a light snack while watching Vice videos about syria or the cannibal warlords.
Relatively apathetic beyond my girlfriend and her kid, really. I've never gotten along with my siblings, was glad to be rid of my parents, feel little but contempt toward people who are over-sentimental or publicly emotional to any great degree. Death doesn't phase me nor do very many, if any, inevitabilities in life. The suffering of others, be they 'third world' citizens or otherwise, I at best ignore.
I wouldn't call myself a sociopath, but i'd undoubtedly call myself the most cold-hearted person I know; something for which i'm somewhat happy about. Truth be told, I wouldn't lament if more were like me given how annoying people seem to be in this day and age.
“The first thing I remember about the world — and I pray that it may be the last — is that I was a stranger in it.” - Malcolm Muggeridge, Apologia pro vita sua (1968)
It may be surprising, but some actually do get married for convenience. I understand it... but I'll never agree to it.
I, myself, can never be cold-hearted. I actually find myself growing more and more warm these days. Hell, I don't even kill instects anymore in my house. I have strategic jars dotted around that should I see a bug - I just grab one of the plastic jars, capture them, go to the nearest window and let them out.
If people expect some divine galactic power to help them out in their time of need, how can those people not show the same mercy and compassion to those who are at comparatively the same level?
OT: I wouldn't call it cold-hearted, but I am by nature the kind of guy described in the OP. Thankfully, I have a dad who is like that as well, so I've made extra effort to give my 10 years younger sister the "Good job!"'s and "Proud of you!"'s she needs. Only when deserved, mind. We no want no spoiled brat :P
Today, I frequently donate to charity, hand out free apples to homeless people and after the summer I'll adopt a cat. And that's not even a lie. People do change, I guess.
Maybe it's just a phase...
