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.

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.

(Bumps old thread..)

I watched this video I agree with a lot, but not all of it.

But things like no one is perfect, different people for different things etc are important I think.
