They say that love is blind. Maybe that’s why it makes us fall over and hurt ourselves all the time.

Twitter user @literElly wanted to get to the bottom of this:

For those of you who, like me, were fortunate enough to have avoided this story up until now, let’s briefly recap “the shkreli story” mentioned in the tweet.

Basically, widely despised pharma bro and current inmate Martin Shkreli was in a relationship with a woman who had started reporting on him, until she became so taken that she gave up both her prestigious job as a journalist and her marriage to be with him.

Then he went to jail and basically said “lol bye, good luck out there.”

But what of the common folk? What are our experiences with this sort of nonsense? Let’s find out.

1. Some people really pay the price.

2. How much literal crap do you put up with?

3. No person can be worth this.

4. There’s…there’s a lot to unpack here.

5. Same song, second verse.

6. When you can’t even be the real you.

7. You gotta respect yourself.

8. It’s the most important meal of the day.

9. Hanging and crawling.

10. Woof.

You may find yourself quick to judge these people, but remember: loneliness is a heck of a drug, and it can make us all act pretty dumb.

Have you had an experience like this?
