Men's love diminishes with time, women's otherwise!

When I was in college, my teacher and friend, Ms. Santos told me that whenever I will get into a relationship in the future, I must choose a man who loves me more than I love him. It is so, because, as she said, men's love for women diminishes as time goes by. While women learnt to love their men more alongside their togetherness. Mylotter, I BELIEVE SO VERY MUCH! How about you?

Hi Being a man, I would definitely object about this theory. For me whether you're a man or a woman, there will always be a tendency for someone's love to diminish. As what one of my favorite director said (Wong Kar Wai) he said that love becomes thinner and thinner as time goes by, so it's up to us to make the flame continue on burning. In short love isn't "permanent" we are the ones that keeps it permanent, love needs to be maintained. And I'm definitely sure that it can be maintained as it can also perish someday.

I agree with you. People need to keep their love alive, not just assume it will always be there.

In one way, I am enlightened by the points you highlighted. Like, keeping the love burning and all. It's just that, I connect my view with the experiences of people I know. Most husband I know "cheat" their wives, in one way or another. May it be just a fling or a serious relationship. One the other hand, their wives spend most of their time, energy and love building up a happy family, rearing the children. All for the sake of their love for their husbands. There are also cases I know, when the husband is also caught with another wowan. Being caught in that situation, decides to leave her wife... but in the end, the wife will beg him to stay... Personally, I pity her! :(

It maybe true that love diminishes along the relationships, but I cannot agree that men do it more than women. I mean, if love is lost it is not ability to do it, but it comes from outside the relationship. Would you believe that men always love their woman but when something or somebody came along the way, love still there but it may just be a pause but not lessen or diminished. If we would say that way, more precise to say is love is lost but not diminished.
