No, love is not a choice. At least, not up to now. Maybe science will allow you to choose who you want to love. But as far as I know, I can't love someone I want. I just love someone, it's randomly. Anyway, some try to make the choice of forgetting the person they love. That's the only way when loving is a choice. But it's hard to forget about someone you love.

Not all love is a choice.The love between families is not a choice,but the love between friends and beloveds is a choice.We can't choose to love or not to love our parents,because they give us life and bring us up;we can choose to love or not to love our friends and beloveds in that we begin with strangers.

Yes I do. I can clearly remember making the decision that I was going to allow myself to fall in love with my ex-boyfriend and when I met my husband I remember doing the same thing. Yes, there was attraction and mutual liking initially, but there came a time when I chose to allow myself to fall in love with them, just as there came a time when I chose that I'd had enuf of my ex-bf's uncertainty and said gbye to that relationship. Life is a series of choices.

I think and I believe that LOVE is a choice both the mind and the heart. Often people think of love as a choice of the heart only. Of course, the heart is important for the “feeling” of being in love – and the joy of having it. However, love is also a choice of the mind. The heart alone cannot overpower all of the difficulties of everyday life. Love can never be attained without the commitment of both mind and the heart. While the heart is responsible for the "emotion"; the mind for the “intention”. For me in order for love to survive longer one should choose both the heart and mind to be in a state of love.
