Today’s post isn’t about me. It’s about one of the most thoughtful bloggers on Steemit: @abigail-dantes. Or, rather, it is about a post she published today: The Romantic Love Delusion.
Which one of us hasn’t wondered why we are attracted to someone. Why we decide to join our fates to another. Few decisions have a greater impact on our lives, and yet, we really don’t understand this one. In her blog today, @abigail-dantes applies her considerable knowledge and insight to this universal question: why do we love one and not another?
I won’t attempt to summarize her essay. I will say that she refers not only to modern psychologists, but also to Plato. For you see, this is not a puzzle for today. It is a puzzle for the ages. Perhaps Plato, thousands of years ago, had as much insight as all the scientists writing on the subject currently.
I recommend this essay. For me, it provided many moments of contemplation. But then, @abigail-dantes always has that effect on me. Be careful if you sample her writing. It can be addictive.
If you check out @abigail-dantes’ blog on Steemit, you can catch up on all her old posts. These are available on the blockchain for anyone to read.
