My problem is I believe love.
I don't believe in love, but I believe it.
That means I don't think it exists, but I fall in it anyway.
I feel like there's a thing. There's a switch.
I'm with a girl, and something happens.
I feel like we're in an irresistible agreement,
like snapping magnets.
I feel like something so special that it's the
most special thing in all of reality is happening.
I feel like we're connected, like we're family by choice,
like we're friends so great that trust isn't even a concern,
as my right hand wouldn't hurt my left hand.
I believe the feeling.

It's not true.
People are drawn together because of evolutionary conditioning that reinforces any processes leading to offspring. Those processes include emotional ones. Emotions get triggered and make us do things, but they're not real. They goad us. They manipulate us. They trick us. They're just sensations, sensations produced internally by our own physiology.
