Bertolt Brecht: When Mr. K. loved a human

“What are you doing?”, Mr. K. was asked, “when you are loving somebody?” “I’m making a design of him”, said Mr. K., “and take care that he is similar to him.” “Who? The design?” “No”, said Mr. K., “the human.”

For me there are some questions because of this scene :

Can you create or are you allowed to create a design of a person you’re in love with?
Are you allowed to change the person you’re in love with?
Why do we create a design of some people we don’t know?
Is it useful to create a design of somebody?

My answer: I really don’t know.
But i think you can not change a person you’re in love with because if you do you create a person you don’t know and a person which is different as the one you’ve felt in love with.
Also you felt in love with not only his or her properties but also with his or her errors.
Nobody is perfect and you can not create a perfect person for you and when you do there is something wrong in your relationship.
On the one hand it’s okay to change somebody but only when it is okay for both sides, for example an addiction. But at the other hand,the most important one, it isn’t because of the things i told you in the upper text.

But everybody has it’s own opinion so maybe some people have a different view about it.

Much love
