I am becoming increasingly disillusioned with ideas of falling in love and similar silly things. I understand love, and I have so much love for so many people - but I don’t think the idea of “falling in love” with someone can possibly be real or true. Its becoming gradually more apparent to me that “falling in love” with someone is just being incredibly fond for someone, and realising that you are a girl and they are a boy and therefore it would be practical to form a relationship and trial whether you would be good mating partners.
Adopting this view, I am finding that homosexual relationships provide greater evidence for truth in the concept of “falling in love” - but even then I cant help but assume that “falling in love” is just a romantic phrasing to depict a fondness and attraction between two people. Because that is all that it really is, mutual fondness and attraction. Why do we, as humans, glorify love so much? Its not much more than that.
