Both her and Romeo were blinded to everything except each other and did not think before doing, for example, Juliet should have ensured that Romeo found out her plan, before she did it.

Toba Beta once said: "“Justice could be as blind as love.” Shakespeare 's play A Midsummer Night 's Dream captures the blindness of both love and justice. Egeus, a respected nobleman in Athens, arranged for his daughter, Hermia, to marry nobleman Demetrius. Egeus tells his daughter that she must obey his wishes: If she does not, she can either choose to become a nun, or die. Hermia, much to her father 's dismay, is deeply in a mutual love with a different nobleman, Lysander. In addition, Hermia 's childhood best friend and Demetrius were in love prior to his sights turning towards Hermia.
An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
The Prince creates harmony because he loves Verona and wants to protect the people living in it. Lord Montague and Lord Capulet have been in a feud for an excessive period of time, and they hate each other because of it. Their feud is mentioned during the prologue and recurringly appears throughout the play. However, at the end of the performance Montague and Capulet learn to love each other because of their children’s death. This is shown when Lord Capulet says “O brother Montague, give me thy hand,/ This is my daughter’s jointure, for no more/ Can I demand.” (V, iii, 300-303) Their grudge created conflict between the houses, although they created harmony when they resolved it.
Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby are both madly in love with Daisy Buchanan.

One way Tom shows his love for Daisy is by protecting her, like when he shifts the blame of Myrtle’s murder
Another reason why he was envious of Laertes was because he had such a close relationship with Ophelia, his sister. Laertes was always supportive of his sister and was very upset when he found out that she had gone “mentally insane”. Hamlet was so envious of him for this reason because he was in love with Ophelia. The fact that Hamlet couldn’t show his love for Ophelia like Laertes did, set a fire inside of him. After Ophelia had drowned, (committed suicide), they had a funeral for her and Hamlet confessed his love for Ophelia feeling relieved and equal to
Daisy is in love with Gatsby, but as war comes Gatsby has to serve his role in it. Daisy could simply wait for Gatsby to come home after the war, but Gatsby comes from a less wealthy family. She meets Tom, the heir of wealthy family, and she marries him. They have such a large desire to keep their money and status that they use others as if they’re there to serve them. An example of this is, once again, how Daisy uses Gatsby to get away with killing Myrtle.

In the play Twelfth Night, through the depiction of Orsino’s and Viola’s desires for romantic love, Shakespeare portrays how adjustable and self-delusional human romantic attraction can be, especially when blinded by wants and needs. Viola, who puts on the appearance of a man, makes everybody think she is a male. Her disguise becomes a sexual confusion throughout the play for several characters, creating an odd love triangle where Viola loves Duke Orsino, who loves Oliva, which then on the other hand loves Viola, in disguise as Cesario. On the other hand, Malvolio dreams of marrying his beloved Olivia, and gaining authority over his superiors, like Sir Toby. Shakespeare uses disguise in the play to show several confusions and internal conflicts between the characters, proving how malleable and deluded some human attractions can be.
