What is it about love and romance that tends to drive out rational thoughts and behavior? You can be a confident, brilliant person but once you fall in love you can tumble into a deep abyss of dumbness.
I read about a documentary by Found Magazine creator Davy Rothbart, called “My Heart is an Idiot”. The title struck me as funny but I actually have thought the same thing about my heart at times.
When you add emotion and sex to any dating “situation” you run the risk of getting caught up. Sure, you can try to pretend that it’s not happening, but it sometimes the dumb behavior starts.
You overlook red flags, you tolerate things you never thought you would, and then you somehow believe you’re in love. Do you think that we do the dumb things because are following our heart?
What do you think you learned from following your heart versus following your head (i.e. more logic, less emotion) in dating?
Of course there are no guarantees that you won’t ever get hurt, but what is the safest option? Wait, is safe even an option when it comes to love?!
What is the most idiotic decision you ever made about love?
