Is it better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?

lovers - life is just too short to fall in love.

For me,it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all because losing a person we loved and has been part of our life for at least some time lets us experience things called love. And in that period of time that you had fallen inlove with someone, you feel not just the pain but also the happiness that some people cannot explain. You can treasure the feelings or the memorable experiences that you had with your ex-partner if you want to. It's your choice. But you have to move on. Breaking-up doesnt mean that you'll stop yourself from loving or meeting a person for you to love again. You have to move on and start again. Then you apply all the lessons that you've learned from your past. So it's really better to be hurt but you experienced how to be loved and be important in someone's life than being alone.

well i am the exact opposite. I would much rather have never known love than to have endured the agony that losing it was. and to some extent still is. even the good times are too painful to remember, they loop right back around to the loss. i would much rather have never felt any of it.

Two opposite opinions. But there is no right or wrong. Firs, everybody said that you should live one day as a hero instead of whole life as a coward. So try to love and you ll be loved. But on the other hand, if you suffer too much from your previous love, you will ask yourself again before entering into another romance.. You'll try to protect yourself from the pain

You're right, experienced makes us stronger and gives us lesson to learn from it, and letting go someone you love because of failure, make you become stronger and a better person, at least letting go someone you love makes your life exciting, the fact that your given the strength and courage to fight a losing battle.. Even when all you want to do is surrender..
