My name is Juliet Capulet and I’m 13 years young and I luv my bf Romeo so much we’re gunna get married i luv him so much& we just met hehe xD I wuld give my lyfe 4 him!

So as a follow up to this post, I did finally finish reading Romeo and Juliet. And I have to admit, although yes it’s Shakespeare and it’s brilliant and all, I don’t understand why this is considered the pinnacle of all romance stories.

The quote above quite accurately depicts the play as what it is. Essentially if you have not read it, two teenagers who have known each other for 72 hours are infatuated with each other (one of whom is only so because he’s obsessed with her “fairness” and virginity) and then commit mutual suicide. 

Side note: I’m pretty certain that Shakespeare is also the originator of modern-day  dick jokes.
