Since you’re eighteen, there’s some other stuff going on there (with the little lady), but your thesis is dead on. 

The act of creating is essentially an act of love (“God created the heavens and the Earth”, etc.).   Love, for men, is much more than an emotion, it is an idea, a fundamental idea of existence.  It drives us, much like the instinct for survival, which is why we spend so much of our time creating things.
