In life, people are changing constantly. Sometimes it is for good and sometimes it is for bad. The same goes for Romeo in the play entitled Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare. Romeo makes many changes throughout the play, but none bigger than his love. He starts off loving
He sees love as much more than simply physical, like Mercutio does, but unlike Benvolio, he does not understand how to handle the heartbreak that comes with love. “Th’ exchange of thy love's faithful vow for mine” (Act 2 Scene 2 Line 134). Right after meeting Juliet, Romeo sneaks to her house and asks her to marry him. This was simply out of impulse, as just before the party, he was still heartbroken over the fact that Rosaline wanted to become a nun. But as soon as he saw Juliet, he “fell in love”. “Here's to my love… with a kiss I die” (Act 5 Scene 3 Lines 119 and 120). Here, Romeo kills himself because he thought that JUliet was dead. He believed that he was so in love with her that he could not live without her. Romeos irrational behavior ultimately lead to his demise. Although Romeo is a male character, he was very sensitive and had many feminine traits. Shakespeare created Romeo this way to show that it was okay for men to feel attached in love, and so that anybody in the audience that felt similarly to him would be able to
Romeo at the beginning of the play doesn't have the most level-headed understand of what real love is and as an example at the beginning of the play he has "fallen in love" with Rosaline and proclaimed that she is the perfect example of a women. Then later on completely forgets about her after seeing Juliet. This gives the reader the sense that Romeo is not very deep in his feelings for women and has a more superficial idea of what love is. Throughout the play though Shakespeare was able to convey how Romeo has matured in his attitude toward love from a shallow desire to a profound and intense passion. His fidelity toward Juliet is quite abstract in the sense that he loves her enough to commit suicide because he feels that he is not able to continue his lie without her which is a demonstration of his faithfulness and loyalty to her. In Romeo and Juliet Romeo is driven by his emotions a lot of the time when making decisions. Examples of him doing this are that because of anger compels him to kill Tybalt in a duel to avenge to death of his friend and despair causes him to take his own life upon hearing of Juliet's death. He also is driven many times by his love for Juliet. Love forces him to make the reckless decision to sneak into the garden of his enemy's daughter and risk death only to catch a glimpse of her. These intense depths of feeing are what drive the character in this story
Romeo and Juliet is a play that shows how intense relationships between two young people can be, this is shown in the love that Romeo and Juliet have for each other. Then how Reckless Romeo and Juliet are stating they would kill each other if anything were to happen to the other. Finally the grief they have when they learn that the other is dead causes them to kill themselves shows the final intensity of their love. Shakespeare is trying to caution quick love or love that is created in an instant and has no thought or reason behind it.
Romeo constantly shows his identity in the text because he is always commenting something lustful or dramatic. Again in the text, Romeo is commenting on Juliet’s beauty, “She stands out against the darkness like a jeweled earring hanging against the cheek of an African. / Her beauty is too good for this world; she’s too beautiful to die and be buried.” (Shakespeare I.5 52-54). From this quote, readers can understand that Romeo thinks that Juliet is too good-looking and she plays whatever game he tries to play to make her to love him. This is irresponsible and not to mention lustful of Romeo because he is older and should know what is best for him and as their families are feuding, it should be obvious to him that he should not marry Juliet, but he does, just so he can be with her. The reader can conclude that Romeo is very irresponsible when it comes to love.

I’ll be with thee straight.” This quote shows that Romeo wants to be with Juliet no matter what and he will hurry to see her. “et me have a dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear.” This quote shows that Romeo is asking for poison to kill himself so he can be with Juliet.

Romeo in this case is the tragic hero, his tragic flaw is his immaturity and fickle traits. Benvolio and Mercutio make fun of Romeo in the beginning because he is always in love.
