what if we actually do not fall in love with the other person but with the image of ourselves that is reflected in their eyes

me: im vegan

person: oh vegan?! wow thats so cool i tried to be vegan but i love cheese too much and also its really expensive, i dont even eat alot of meat but when i do its all free range because my uncle owns a farm and look at these canines i mean we were meant to eat meat and also lions eat meat and im basically a lion, but thats cool im thinking of trying it out when i move out because my parents wont let me right now

me: i literally do not care at all

honestly the amount of time i’ve spent blocking people who are trying to ruin “blackout” day could have been put to configuring which point during the day will provide me with the best natural light
