Some people who lack love in there life has been hurt so much by the people who they thought love them, end up hurting them so they shut out love to keep from getting hurt all over again. So they wont feel like they are setting theirself up for failure.

Sick because love, then closed the heart and do not want to receive love again is a very stupid act. Love is definitely going to find partners. Since it was outlined that all creatures must have been there each soul mate, I believe it. So always keep a positive attitude in making love, so you will not easily hurt because of love.

i see what you are saying, i to say don't close the heart, but when you look at other people situations its alot a person indures that might not want anyone to love them. because love has shown them negative all this time, and most people feel that it would never come. you have people who don't know how to love because they never were taught how to love, just like a mother to a child its alot she is going to get wrong, or come on to strong because this is what they were taught coming up. some people lack love not by choice but by how things turned out to be in their life. you look at gangs and they say the main reason they join was that no one would look out for them or love them like the people who is in with them, they don't care who loves them even if its wrong, they don't care, alot of people grow up without parents to love them, so they find it in the negative in the street. and to them the negative becomes their positive. as long as someone loves them.

I dont think that everybody who lack love are depressed, some people just choose this to be the way they want to live their lives... I know some people who are a lot happier being single and unloved by someone special. It's all about choice at the end of the day. I know what you mean though about being hurt by someone that you were in love with, who you thought loved you, and yes it can really put you off ever letting someone get that close to you again... but I think that in life you never really know what is going to happen, and one day something might just happen that could possibly be out of your control, but I also feel that you really have to stop hurting first, which will happen in time.

I know some people who are not involved in any romantic kind of relationship and they were happy about it, because it is their choice. I think it still depends on a person's perspective and sometimes going against the norm can have a lot of people asking you about it, but if a person is happy being single, I think that matters the most

Yes.. Its 100% truely "YES". But, the love is not girl's love, which is just attraction. I want to change the word "love" to another, as it is between male and female. The real love is what u have between with ur best friend or ur mother and father. You know, No people will love u in this world like ur parents.. Hence I support those love. And that love is needed for every human. Else, may not be they will be in Depression state, but they dont what the world means....

I dont think depression has anything to do with love to be honest. my husband has been diagnosed with depression (before we were together), and that was nothing to do with "having no love", he had a loving family, a girlfriend at the time, and a large group of friends and a job!!! I don't think love really has anything to do with it. Having a partner doesn't really make you happy necessarily- but I can see where your coming from, having NO love in your life at all no family no children no partner and no frineds, then yes this could maybe send a person into depression, but just no partner or been hurt by a partner, though it would upset and hurt you a lot, I am not so sure about ti sending you into depression!

i think the idea of love lacking in someone's life is not true. though depressed people might feel that love abandoned them, it's just a mere thought of the thinker. love is everywhere. in our nature. in our family. in our friends. the absence of a lover doesn't make a person deprived of love. it is just a part of ourselves that has been wounded and through that, we get learnings from the experience.the question should be revised to.. do depressed people lack love in their life?
