Juliet: O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon, who monthly changes in her circled orb, lest that thy love prove likewise variable.
Romeo: What shall I swear by?
Juliet: Do not swear at all. Or, if thou wilt, swear by thy gracious self, which is the god of my idolatry, and I’ll believe thee. – William Shakespeare
The heart wants what the heart wants. And though Romeo loved Juliet with all of his heart, and Juliet loved Romeo with all of hers, we know that their love tragically ended.
‘Romeo and Juliet’ is the ultimate (theatrical) example; young lovers have very little history upon which they can draw – love conquers all.
Thankfully, once most men reach their mid-thirties they begin to realize that a lasting relationship involves more than irresistible chemistry.
Married, recently separated, bad breakup, loaded with baggage; considerably different levels of education, income, and varied backgrounds. Though I rarely write positive thoughts about online dating, sitting in front of your computer,reading a profile you can decide right then and there whether or not she’d be a good match – No, not getting involved with that! Love never has the chance to take root, phew!
Granted, there are deal breakers that you know you can’t live with. However as a mature man you’ll never know if love conquers all unless you’re a bit flexible. You have enough life experience behind you to know when to end a dating relationship because you’re certain that a life together wouldn’t work out. Still there are certain traits in women, that at first glimpse may seem insurmountable that on hindsight may not be what they first seemed to be.
Love conquers all? There are times when it does.
