It's a manifestation of our inner insecurity, inverted, projected outward.
A shared delusion is what it is. You love me with all my flaws, and I love you with all your flaws, and together we can get through this thing called life.
But the serpent bites to the last. It will get you too.

It's much easier to let yourself be carried by the high produced by love, and take the big risk, not because you're bold, but because the high is so strong that it will nullify your reason. I find love to be much more addictive than alcohol (don't know about drugs -- never tried them).It's easy to be pessimistic about love, but it's hard to have enough confidence in yourself and your judgment of others to take a chance on a relationship.

Of course, this comparison hinges on the assumption you haven't dismissed emotion itself as worthless delusion, which seems to be in vogue with this particular "enlightenment" crowd.
You know, Shah, you are right. It did come to an end already, about 30 years ago. Because we did not know how to handle it. She got married and I never saw the point if I was not going to marry her, she was my best mate. Why be tethered to anyone? Because the relationship ended, but not the love. We still love each other and can finish each other's sentences and all that happy horseshit. So, Shah, the price has already been paid. I have not loved anyone else except for one person a dozen years ago who was the quintessential Woman of the QRS description. That was a total disaster.Shahrazad wrote:Romantic love sucks.

OK, that's fine by me. How is it that I am supposed to get humiliated? I make the move, my life turns to shit? My life is about to get better, you loser. I'll tell you what happens. You're on.prince wrote:prince wrote:brokenhead wrote:I don't see how I can lose.
I'm sure DQ can leave this thread as a humiliator of fuckwits exactly like you.
