By scene one of act four, the meddling fairies who mixed up the romances have made it all right. Lysander loves Hermia once again while Demetrius is still in love with Helena. All is well: the couples are to be married, and the previous night with all its craziness feels like a dream to them. However, Helena still has her doubts as she reflects, “And I have found Demetrius like a jewel,/Mine own and not mine own” (4.1.199-200). She compares love to a jewel: temporary and never genuinely possessed.
She brings him goods to eat. But the beautiful woman leaves him all alone after he sees a dream of many men before him telling him that they were fooled by her, just like she fooled him. According to the knight they have fallen in love at first sight, but the beautiful woman has no pity for men and leaves him with his heart in his hands and all alone. To that extend one would consider "La Belle Dame sans Merci" to be a romantic

We know that this is not the first time he has used these descriptive phrases; for Rosaline, he claimed the same, and yet Juliet is ignorant of his fickle affections and charmed by his eloquently-phrased declarations. Then, when events take a tragic turn and she finds Romeo, dead of his own tragic flaw, passionate impetuousness, Juliet indulges in this mistake herself and commits suicide. Once again, she thinks only of her “need” to be with him and not of the effects on the others who closely share her life. She is blinded by her single-minded love for this fickle boy who loved another only hours before. In this respect, romantic love can never
It seems for Phoebe that there is no possible hope to find the true pastoral view of love, because it is simply ridiculous. However, there is an ironic twist when Phoebe falls for Ganymede, who himself is a pastoral character from myth. Ganymede has shown nothing but disdain for Phoebe, even outwardly pointing out her “foulness”, which made Phoebe “fall in love with” Ganymede’s “anger” (3.5.67-69). Despite Ganymede’s pleas for Phoebe to “not fall in love” with her because she is “falser than vows made in wine” and blatantly “likes [her] not” (3.5.72-74), Phoebe falls for Ganymede in a rather comedic situation. This turn of events brings about a similar situation shown in the pastoral, where there is permanently unrequited love between characters; yet, this is taken to a comedic extreme, where none of the characters requite the love that has been given towards them.

Hamlet describes vividly his disgust for his mother, Gertrude, in his first soliloquy in the first act of this play. The queen has just remarried to her deceased husband’s brother, Claudius, in a short amount of time. Enraged by this rash decision of the queen’s, Hamlet shouts, “Frailty, thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare). Hamlet drives himself crazy mourning over his mother’s decision to marry Claudius. In a way, Shakespeare is implying that when women are allowed to make their own decisions and do what they want, it never results in anything beneficial.
Scott Fitzgerald portrays love as essentially impracticable fancy. When Daisy’s her daughter was born, her husband Tom was nowhere to be found. The nurses handed her baby to her and she said, “ I hope she’ll be a fool—that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” Daisy just like every women back then would just ignore the signs of cheating because they couldn’t do anything about it because they were defined by their husbands. Being a fool means her daughter realize that her husband is cheating. That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
