Netflix Love is Blind is such an eye opener!
For context, it’s about a group of guys and girls “dating” in pods, without seeing each other.
They all “date” each other on an alternate system until they feel like they establish a bond with one of them.
They’re in a house, with no phones and no contact with the outside world.
The guy and girl could only see each other when one of them proposed and the other one accepted (without ever having seen each other).
It shows with no mercy just how much people crave for love on a deep irracional level.
It shows how easy it is for people to fall in love, say I Love You and getting married.
Not only how easy it is to fall in love but how much people really need it.
They crave for unconditional acceptance, to be accepted as they are.
It’s a need beyond explanation.
This experiment shows that while a couple is “an island” everything works. It’s perfect as they’re living for each other only.
It’s interesting to see how everything changes when they come back from the honeymoon and the couple is exposed to their respective families and friends.
The whole couple dynamic is affected as soon as it’s exposed to the “external” elements.
The love that had started exclusively based on the soul connection level, shifts as social and family approval come into play.
I realized how much of it portrays real life and feelings are very real in one moment and then they’re just not real anymore.
I now understand it’s possible for a guy/girl to say so many intense, life changing words because they really feel it in that moment. They’re fully present and locked in it, eager to find what they’ve been looking for.
And the fact it changes doesn’t mean they were lying. It means it was a very intense and heart led situation.
It was a “right here, right now” situation.
I guess it’s the same in “real life”.
When you meet someone, it’s quick and intense.
It’s soul connection in a love bubble.
When circumstances change, it’s like that bubble looses its protection, all those magic words loose meaning.
As quick as the fire starts, it burns out.
It’s inherent to human being!
