Some girls are never interested in partnering with boys.

As with most species of parrots, peach-faced lovebirds form monogamous pair-bonds that last a lifetime. When two females choose each other, they engage in behavior similar to heterosexual couples. They mate with each other, build nests together, lay eggs, and incubate them—though their eggs are usually infertile.

And certain boys don’t partner with girls.
