Andrea Ucini asks, ‘If love is supposed to make us happy, why do we make ourselves miserable and fall for someone we can’t have?’

Ucini’s illustration of a man on a step stool looking over a fence, shows how we look for things we can’t have, whether because of idealism—naively hoping something will work out—or masochism, enjoying the pain of desiring something we may never have.
