Romeo and Juliet’s relationship has often been romanticized as being authentic while his love for Rosaline has been depicted as being a superficial infatuation. This is what many die-hard romantics want to believe; however, the text represents Romeo’s love for Rosaline as a genuine one—at least on Romeo’s part. In the beginning of the play, Romeo lashes out at love’s cruelty as do many heartbroken individuals. In Act I Scene I, the depressed Romeo describes love as a deadly poison, a smoke, a swollen sea, a madness, and a choking gall. When he describes love as a “smoke,” this evokes images of a choking black cloud of doom. Everyone who has tasted the bitterness of love knows how gloomy the world feels.

Yet Romeo and Juliet 's love is one that transcends the orthodox realms of society and goes against what is socially appropriate. Even Friar Lawrence makes this distinction when he speaks of the difference between loving and doting. This is the difference between Romeo 's feelings for Rosaline and for Juliet.

Juliet too, shares similar feelings which is displayed in her soliloquy, thinking of Romeo: “My only love sprung from my only hate!” (Shakespeare 50). Without having really gotten to know him on a profound and romantic level, she can already claim that she is in love with him despite their families ' fighting. Friar Lawrence even anticipates that something bad may occur due to the couple’s ardent passion, as he says, “These violent delights have violent ends,...” (Shakespeare 92). These feelings of affection can be chalked up to the teenage brain in love.
