Glosario feminista: “A” de Amor Romántico

Mi amor romántico. Él era el amor de mi vida y yo tenía 21 años. Lo conocí y fue amor a primera vista, como en las películas. Todo en él me parecía maravilloso y perfecto; congeniábamos en todos los niveles. No tenía dudas, yo era recién egresada de la licenciatura en literatura y quería estar con él para siempre. ¿Por qué? Porque así debe ser. Naces, creces, encuentras al amor de tu vida, vives con él, para él, por él y listo, puedes morir feliz a su lado. ¿Y mis planes personales? ¡Qué importaban! Lo tenía a él, lo amaba y con eso bastaba. Para siempre. O quizás no. Nuestro ritmo de vida cambió y empezaron los problemas. Él me dejó. Pero me amaba, porque una vez al mes volvía a decírmelo. Y yo le creía. Lo esperé porque eso debemos hacer las que amamos, ¿no? Esperar a que ellos estén seguros, a que vengan, ¿y mientras? Nada, lo amaba más, porque me dolía y eso era amor. “Perdón, no puedo más”, me dijo mi cuerpo. Yo entregué todo y al final me quedé sin nada, incluso sin fuerzas para seguir amándolo.

Amor Romántico

El amor romántico es la forma cultural, social y política en la que nos enseñaron el concepto de amor. Sus principales características son: entrega todo a la otra persona, y por ende, posterga lo propio; perdona y justifica todo tipo de violencias en nombre del amor; idealiza al sujeto amado y a la relación a un nivel casi sacro; y crea dependencia emocional al invalidar las experiencias individuales. Las características, ideas, creencias y mitos que definen al Amor Romántico hacen que sea algo imposible de poseer. Esta clase de amor crea comportamientos que pueden producir frustración, tristeza y depresión.

También es el cimiento para la institución más básica de la sociedad: la familia, pues es heteronormativo (mujer cis + hombre cis = hijos cis que se seguirán reproduciendo).
