Do you agree with this statement "Love can be learned"? Do you think regardless what, if you stay together too long sooner or later you'd find love in each other? Or is it not always the idea? Can you share experiences to prove the statement is valid or invalid?

[i]I guess everything in this world is possible. SO, I believe in that. I have no personal experience but for sure it happens to a lot of people especially when the person is very good, loving and caring! I hope we will hear from other members who can share their personal experiences, that must be very exciting![/i]

yes, i agreed with this statement.. you can learn a love if the person is really caring and really expressing his sencirity to you..i have no experience with this kind of things yet, but i believe in this statement.. we all girls has common weaknesses, the care from the guy.. if this guy will prove to you that he really care for you, that he's always there to help you no matter what, without any paying back, i'm sure you can learn love to him..

I have never heard of this quote but I kind of belive in it for some reasons. I know I haven't been in love yet and not tried towards it too. So, I didn't try, I am not in love you tried and you were in love in past. I am sure your bf will come back after taking a short break.

Hahahaha... Sanuanu, why do you keep relating my topics to my old topics and to my boyfriend? It's really funny when you do that. I wasn't thinking of him or my problems when I was opening this discussion. I was actually referring to someone I know who is already in her late 30's and then someone came along courting her, she told me she didn't really like how he looks like (well, he wasn't really appealing and all but he was a good man). That's why I was asking if it's possible to learn to love someone. hehehe.. You are funny. Please take the topic as it is and not in connection to every topic I post.

Yes and No!There should be the spark for love in you to love a particular person.Without it,you can carry on living with that person and love will not knock your doors.And in some cases,familiarity breeds charisma and there are chances you will be loving the person whom you are meeting often.It can end either way.Cheers!

Oh, I guess you're right. Your discussion reminded me of a friend so long ago. He told me that he never really loved his wife, he just married her because he wanted someone to take care of him when he's old, and he was getting older that time (I know it sounds pretty selfish, but I guess many do that too). Anyhow, he did marry her. Over the years they only got one kid. When I asked him if he learned to love her. He told me that he never did learn to love her. It was all about companionship, but there's really no spark whatsoever, he even thinks she's not beautiful at all. Sad but true. Tsk tsk tsk.

hey i do agree with the statement, love can be learned. when u stay together for too long its obvious that u'll fall in love with each other. by staying together u start liking each other & also start liking each others habits.

I thnk we are born with the ability to love. Its hate we have to learn. I have seen so many situations where people have tried to learn to love someone and its useless. We are created by love for the most part. We inherit different genes from our parents and we learn by watching them. Love is a given. Its easy to love. Which is why I dont know why people go to great lengths to hate. Who knows why. Love is something we are born with. dl
