Author’s comment: Absurd, right? If you would look at love from a purely medical perspective, it kinda sounds like a serious mental illness that needs treatment. Yet it is accepted in society. But in fact, people actually question you if you do not have feelings of romantic love and you say that openly. In that case, people assume that something’s wrong with you, even if the lack of those feelings is totally fine for you. Turns out not everyone is made for romantic love, it’s fine.
