I Love Pattie Analysis

Decent Essays
Moreover, you mention that you don’t think Robert loved Pattie because they were in relationship for years but Robert did not want to marry her and even lied to his parents about being married to her. The issue is that even though they dated for several years, it does not mean they were ready to get married. They suffered from difficulties such as lack of funding and it was not long before they both discovered that he was gay. You also mention that he was "selfish" and abandoned love for lust. I don’t see it that way. He was not being selfish, he just finally decided to accept himself for who he truly feels.

May be he came clean to her out of love, because he could not deceive someone he loved into thinking he was sexually satisfied with her. True love doesn’t require a title or a sexual attraction; it is merely respecting and caring for the other person no matter what. Therefore, I suggest that you explain your point further to make it more
