How Romanticism Ruined Love

Recommended Posts

I came across this video awhile ago and think it's pretty accurate in pointing out major problems and toxic beliefs when it comes to both romantic, and even platonic love. I feel like society would embrace non-romantic forms of love much more, if it weren't for romanticism, which promotes the false idea that romantic love is perfect and can solve everything in your life.

This was a really interesting video! I think if all those things weren't tied together in most people's minds, the world would be a whole lot more aro-friendly.

I didn't even realize how true this is until I watched it just now. If it weren't for romanticism, it might not be so difficult to explain who we are as aromantics, and asexuals.

That actually makes a lot of sense... More than I thought it would. I think that approaching love as something more practical than emotional would solve a lot of problems, especially the point that your SO cannot and will not fulfill all the roles that you hope they will.

I really agree with this. I might show this video to one of my romantic friends to see what she feels about it.
