"Falling in love" is the problem. Real love is about decisions. Safe or Sorry happens no matter what! Too pragmatic? Yeah, ok. I admit life would be colorless without love's insanity.

I agree! It's about deciding to do things that normally you would not. It's about deciding to throw caution to the wind, forget how to fear, and learn about going all-in on bets when the odds are obscured.

Oh, also about the immeasurable satisfaction of getting it right, even when it takes a few falls to get there.

Hey, you forgot the other two corners:

Top-left: The one you falling in love with betrayed you in every way possible.

Bottom-right: Married then falling in love with each other (it happens all the time as well :))

Take your pick.

Yeah, frequently people regret falling in love.

I prefer the non-touchy-feely Indexed cards.

b- said...

nah, touchy-feely's good too.

Crimson Feet said...

interesting and true!... neither does "falling in love" stay, nor does a marriage of convenience hold on for long!!

i think "loving someone", rather than "being in love", helps!

nepalsites said...

so, should i marry the one i love or not!

Shan said...

Yeah, I know way too many of those.

Crimson Feet said...

@nepalsite i guess the import is that marry the one you love, not the one you are "in love with"!.. and never marry for convenience :)

personally... don't marry!!
when was the last time you heard a married man extolling the virtues of marriage! ;)...
on the contrary...

u see..

I could go on and on about the virtues of marriage - maybe it's just me.

Anyway:

Top-left = unrequited love
Bottom-right = dead

I'm a married man, here to extol the virtues of marriage! Of course, it doesn't really change all that much; it's just an affirmation of what's there.

Also, just to note, I'm on my second marriage now, and I'm still on good terms with my first wife (and her husband) - we all get together pretty regularly to shoot the breeze.

Thanks Jess. Good timing. I needed this just as a friendly reminder. ;)
