There's something quite romantic about confrontation. Think about it: you care so much about something that you're willing to fight for it... There's nothing as underwhelming as indifference, there's no passion within indifference, just people wanting to step away from something; and while all that is useful and good in certain occasions, lives without confrontation tend to be slightly boring.

I'm not saying that you should be fire and dynamite all the time, but, there are moments where a bit of heat turns out to be exactly what you need. I bet you've had or heard about relationships that are dull and boring, people that break up because they have no spice in their lives... That sucks, but the important thing to understand here is that if you have explosions all the time, eventually, you blow up as well. Sometimes the smart move is to row, row, row your boat and get the hell outta there.

But, again, from time to time, it doesn't hurt to play with fire for a little while. Romance is about getting in touch with emotion, about feeling stuff and being passionate, about adrenaline. If you happen to find something that makes you feel that, keep it for a while but remember that, if you play too much with it, you're gonna get badly hurt. Row the boat, test the waters and get out when you had enough, when you're ready to settle down but not, never ever, before that.

// Las confrontaciones tienen cierto aire romántico. Piénsenlo: algo te importa tanto que estás dispuesto a pelear por él... No hay nada tan aburrido como la indiferencia, no hay pasión en la indiferencia, sólo gente que quiere salirse de alguna situación; y si bien eso es útil y bueno en ciertas ocasiones, las vidas sin confrontación tienden a ser un poco aburridas.

No digo que hay que ser fuego y dinamita todo el tiempo, pero, hay momentos donde un poco de temperatura resulta ser exactamente lo que necesitas. Apuesto a que han estado o han escuchado de relaciones que son sosas y aburridas, gente que termina separándose porque no tienen sazón en sus vidas... Eso es terrible, pero la cosa importante a entender aquí es que si tienes explosiones todo el tiempo, eventualmente, tú explotas también. A veces la decisión más lista es remar, remar, remar tu bote y salir a toda prisa de algún lado.

Pero, de nuevo, hay veces en que no lastima jugar con fuego por un rato. El romance se trata de entrar en contacto con las emociones, sobre sentir cosas y ser apasionado, sobre adrenalina. Si se encuentran con algo que los haga sentir así, consérvenlo por un tiempo pero recuerde, si juegan mucho con eso, terminarán con malas quemaduras. Remen su bote, prueben las aguas y salgan de ahí cuando haya sido suficiente, cuando estén listos para sentar cabeza pero no, nunca jamás, antes de eso.
