I was watching an old Woody Allen movie and in the end he talks about how relationships are absurd and we keep going after them even though it usually ends with heartbreak. But he thinks it's because we want the eggs. And I agree. Since I've never been in a relationship I assume it's mostly taking by both people. Also I happen to think that we just use each other in relationships to save ourselves from loneliness and misery. What I'm trying to get at is we shouldn't take them seriously unless it's actual love which only 10% of people experience based on a study I just made up.
So what is it about relationships that makes me uneasy? (From now on I shall refer to them as ships because relationships is too long to spell.) Well I have a feeling I might become obsessive with my partner in crime because I am extremely lonely and sad and the few contacts I do have with humans make me feel very happy. The other day an older gentleman said good morning young man and I said good morning, too. Yes that simple exchange made my day. How pathetic. Also I probably would hate to spend a day without him or spend a day with him that is incredibly boring. Ships are weird for me.
On this subject I am still a tad naive but I have watched enough romance films to know how it works.
This month I've been reading The Old Man and the Sea and I really like it. I especially love how Hemingway can use such simplicity in his story to convey a complex meaning.
