    This is a few years old...but as far as I'm concerned, it looks like this:



    For me, being in love involves loving a family, because my idea of ideal love is that (paraphrasing Anthony DeMello love is like a rose...it does not give its scent only to the good people...
    Love isn't about the beloved...it is about the love...
    The beloved, if things are good, simply brings out the best in you, so that your best gets radiated out to anyone in your proximity, including them and others.

    Being a person of principles, there is not some sweetness or kindness that is arbitrarily reserved for the beloved...she gets my best when I am at my best...my kids get my best when I am at my best.
    To me, INTPs in love are just INTPs who are trying to be generally loving(eg. agape), and who have crossed paths with someone that brings out the best in them.
    ...the origin of emotional sickness lay in people’s belief that they were their personalities...

    This. I was no less rational when I fell in love; I realized that there is more to life than reason. It sounds all cliched and shit, but I never felt more alive.

    This captures it for me really. It's an uncomfortable dynamic between primitive biology and rationality.

    Might I ask your age? Curious because I tend to associate that line of thinking with younger people.

    Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

    Please tell me that beyond your white picket fences and Honda Odyssey minivan, exists a storage drive holding the most depraved collection of tentacle rape monster and scat porn that has ever been compiled.

    You're like the living embodiment of a freshly baked apple pie cooling on the window seal on a spring afternoon in rural Kansas.

    Every other week, Robcore gets together with a group of buddies down at the neighborhood pub, dons a white robe and hood, and burns crosses. You know, to keep his family safe.

    Legend has it, once every decade or so, as his family is fast asleep, Robcore sneaks off into the stillness of nightfall in search of passed out homeless men to prey upon for the ultimate cathartic zen release sensation.

    He strangles them to death, in quite violent fashion, to quell the fiery rage impulses burning inside of him daily that he fights so hard to suppress, so that his family never has to bear witness to the true beast which lies beneath those crystal blue eyes and Colgate smile.
