Does Romeo truly love Juliet? I think in this case he truly does. Love can happen in a lot of strange ways, In a blink of an eye (like with Romeo and Juliet) or it can take over 15 years (like in the movie when Harry met Sally. Although I’m pretty sure it is just Romeo and Juliet who falls in love that quickly. Romeo’s capacity of feelings is rather larger than the normal person though. When he love’s he loves, when he’s angry he kills a Capulet, when he’s sad (about Juliet) he kills himself, Sad but true.

So when Romeo leaves the party he says “Can I go forward when my heart is here? Turn back, dull earth, and find thy center out” (2, 1, 1-2) meaning that he knows where his heart belongs, why would he just leave? And decides to go back, and find Juliet, His Love. I still think that they were both a little too young and naïve, but they really did love each other. I know that I would not kill myself if I didn’t truly love the person, and I didn’t think I can live another day without Him, but I’m...
