However, there are many flaws in this theory, it was not my fault or intention to have Romeo fall become infatuated with me, nor was it me who made Romeo to come to the ball. The main flaw being that it I had accepted Romeo’s obsession he still would have met Juliet therefore the two would still have been able to fall in love.
How am I the one to blame for Romeo infatuation with me? I have no control over anyone else’s emotions, Romeo included. I tried to let Romeo down easily, multiple times, but he persisted. Please…
