The Love Delusion
Is fate pre-determined?
Is it all ‘written in the stars’?
Is love real?
I wonder, why do we consider a catalyst, attraction, as moral?
Attraction is surely strategic, and we are largely unconscious of it.
The rest is a story we tell ourselves.
Society has confused us, hence the inevitable disappointment towards that which does not exist never living up to our expectations.
Humans: not too deep.
Technology bears fruit of comfort and ill in equal measure, adding acquisitiveness to strategy: is he/she good looking/wealthy/got the right circle of friends etc.
Dating websites betray the lie through collective melancholy.
Is it not so much ‘love is blind,’ as we are blind to love’s delusion?
