Again, the title conveys the subject matter clearly in this case. A whole relationship can be built on false pretense, and everybody can actually be happy with that for so long as it serves each person’s purpose. Sure, it is a selfish thing to do, and it can be quite destructive if not everyone is playing the same game. But let’s face it, we live in a world full of those kinds of behavior. And again, at times, it doesn’t even take two people for this to happen. Sometimes, we can do it to ourselves without anyone’s help. That is called being delusional. That is easy to see in others. That is harder to recognize for ourselves.
