"Just as it is common to upgrade a phone or even a car when a new model comes along, there can be a similar tendency to want to upgrade our lover if we see a better one on offer - someone who ticks more of the necessary boxes. There is a danger, claim some psychologists, that we may seek to maximize the quality of our romantic purchases rather than accept imperfections, and end up treating our partners almost like material possessions that we can discard at will. The overall result is that we have become excessively focused on gaining individual satisfaction - gratifying our own desires - rather than on giving love to another person. The Greeks would be sure to tell us that capitalist culture has gradually lured us into an unhealthy form of 'philautia,' or self-love."
