i mean, i know they are new relationships. i know we all need to keep our eyes open. i know they might not be in love yet (or ever) but it had me gobsmacked. it seems to me that a relationship that starts as sensible is incredibly sad. young lovers, whether they stay together or not, have a lifetime to be sensible. young people look forward to bills and work, children and family, responsibility heaped upon obligation and all of those things have their own rewards but they all require us to be sensible.
i know that love doesn't always bowl us over, sometimes it will sneak up quietly but in my mind new love will always include some degree of insanity, some feeling of being overwhelmed and out of control, a sense that we are unwitting targets of cupids arrow
