When I was originally titling this series I thought about calling it “The
Danger of Romantic Delusions”. That title however was a bit off putting and
the objective of a blog posts title is to get people to read the post.
My reluctance to use that title doesn’t change the fact that the root cause
of unrealistic romantic expectations is delusion. In fact romance itself is
connected with an idealized, subjective, anti-rational and even delusional
view of the world and sexual dynamics.
