Is love really blind or is it you who is blind?

unmatched matches - stereotypes

A friend once told me the story of how he and his friends commented on a newly married couple. They thought that the match wasn't a good one because the guy didn't look fit for the girl. So they concluded that love was really blind. However, one of his friends opened up their minds by saying that the real blind one was the person looking at the lovers. He said that if you do not love the person, you won't see that person for who he really is and what he is worth. I think I'll have to agree with this guy. Yeah, the real blind ones are the people looking at others and they like to appoint themselves instant judges of other people. Do you catch yourself commenting on other people's love affairs?

i think we should not comment on others' love life. if they have chosen each other, then we are nit right people to say or judge the love. Yes, it is the people who are blind and keep on commenting.

Well, I must say that love is blind. And we do get blinded by love as well. Love is that thing that let us see beyond the looks of a person. Only in love we can see how great a person is despite of their looks. I have seen many of my good looking friends falling for the odd ones or the one who wouldn't match up with them but I know that they know that person loves them much more than anyone else in this whole world.

I say that the person does see for who the other person is but doesn't care, mind, or accepts the person for who the person is. I do wonder how one ugly person is with an attractive person.

That's a nice point of view. I haven't thought of that before. What I believe is that the person involved, or inlove, is not blind. He can see the flaws of the other person. Yet he doesn't care. He accepts her for what she is, with the flaws and all. And I think that's what love is really about. The third persons, the persons merely judging, they're not blind too. They see who the persons really are, yet they are bothered with what they find. Sometimes, and I mean sometimes, it pays to listen to these people, especially if they're your friends, 'cause they may know a thing or two that you don't think as something important.

I try my best not to be judgemental when it comes to other peoples love lives, but sometimes it is nearly impossible to ignore. Especially when the situation involves my family. All three of my women cousins have had children in the span of a year and each of them claiming they got pregnant as an attempt to get attention from their guys. Love is blind in the fact that they shouldn't have to have done that to earn the love of their men. It seems really sad to me.

Love is never blind, the truth is, those who are not in love are the ones who are blind to the issues that tickle those truely in love-usually they see nothing, they smell nothing, they hear nothing but I truely tell, what two people in love say, what two people in love smell and what two people in love see can never be seen by a third party-that is why love is deemed to be in the eye and heart of the beholders

I fully agree with you in this matter. Love is an affair between two humans and hence we do not have any right to make comments on them. It may be possible that we may find one person not fit for the other. However, we should not make any comments on that point. It is a qestion of individual's personal choice. We must allow the person to decide whom one should love. Love is not blind. It is a heavenly feeling that one gets when one knows that one is being loved by other person.

the person is blind.He accepts the person w/ no qualms just like a mother who accepts her baby whatever flaws it may have
