Confidence game

Confidence is not a given in the characters of lovers. It may in fact be the outcome or reward of love honestly pursued and won. If it is present a priori, then it is dangerously attractive.

Therefore

Beware of lovers who attract you with their cool confidence. Even if not feigned, it means you play on an uneven field.

the words seem critical of human nature but I am in a forgiving humor today. I may not recognize weakness or wanting at the moment it is setting traps for me but by the time I do...I have to admit I have the same weaknesses and set the same traps.


Awareness is only good, at least until it is hitched to judgments.
