Hi I have a friend who have got hurt by a guy and she repeatedly gave him way to hurt her. Whne I asked her why did she do that, she told me LOVE IS BLIND. Now, I dont understand, LOVE is just a word and how could it be blind. I thinks its her who is blind. Anyone agree with me Thanusha

Hmmm I think you're right about the lovers are blind thingy but I personally think that love is blind too. When you love, you won't care about the appearance and attitudes anymore.. as long as what you feel for him or her is real. My motto was once "Love is blind" :)

Hi Being ignorant with the appearance and blaming love to be blind is acceptable. You might have loved the person for the inner beauty. In her case she has been saying she loves him when he does all kind of nonsense to her. She has been keeping quiet and saying its because of love. Dont you think its very silly?

Hmm I think it's quite silly but I think we really can't blame her anymore 'cos once you love someone, you will find really hard to tell right from wrong.. Am I making any sense here? XD Well, that's my opinion.. I think she'll only awaken once she finds another man worthy of her love. Goodluck to your friend :)

Yes i agree with you thanusha...love is blind and it has the tendancy to make lovers blind, but its up to us that how long we live in that blindness, if it is to some extent like not seeing the bad qualities of your lover, or neglecting his flaws then that may make the relationship strong, but if you are going blind, till the time that u r thrown away from one's life and still u call it as love, then its your mistake, so better love with open eyes....

Lovers are blind,to say.They just don't analyze things and plunge into the river of love.And even when they get drowned,they don't have the least knowledge of it.One must be very careful in selecting a lover and cope up for the rest of their lives.Just blaming love for their faults shall not be encouraged.Cheers!

Hi srganesh I agree with you. We have to be very careful with making decisons. There is too many factors to be taken into consideration. Thanusha

MY sister has been there a couple of times. Be assured after a while they realise what there partner is like and get rid of them. Unfortunately they can be prone to making the same mistake again.

love is not blind but lovers are blind. about your friend she's really blind when it comes to love. because even if the guy hurt her but still she doesn't really pay attention to it. As long as they're together. maybe your friend is just afraid to face the truth that their relationship is falling apart. Or she's afraid to let go of the guy and left alone. I hope that one day your friend will realize that in love you have to sacrifice but it still depends if the guy is really worth it.

well i disagree with you because LOVE is not only a word its also a feeling and LOVE cant be so blind.I get so mad when women say that the boyfriends or husbands hurt them in the name of LOVE.To me LOVE is about caring,sharing,giving,accepting,happiness,joy and understanding.But i dont think that its about hurting.Can you imagine hurting your parents,siblings or kids?I think not.When a man hurts a woman whether its physical or otherwise i see him as being insecure.No ones hurts someone they love intentionally.So tell you friend that LOVE is never blind.We are the ones who allow people to hurt us and get away with it.LOVE cant be blind.She needs to boost her self-esteem,be proud of who she is and have more security and know that she will meet someone who will think that the sun rise and sets on her.Take a look at her life and encourage her to put him in his place or move on.When this guy meets the one he truly LOVE he wont even pull a strand of her hair because it might hurt her.We as women needs to stand up and maintain our right to survival and happiness without abuse.

Love is just an emotion so you can not say that love is blind, and as per your friends word I want to say that when we choose a person to love we do not choose a right kind of guy or girl so this is our mistake so we are the blind that means lovers are blind not love

Love is blind but lovers have eyes and they purposefully close it to enjoy the feeling of love. I can't say lovers are blind but they don't allow their eyes to see things. This is my personal view only my friend. I havn't been in love till now!
