Theseus thinks the strange stories of these lovers are the ramblings of young passion: they are romantics with overactive imaginations,

More strange than true. I never may believe
These antique fables nor these fairy toys.
Lovers and madmen have such seething brains,
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend
More than cool reason ever comprehends. act 5 sc 1

This sounds like the pragmatic and stubborn Theseus that we know.
