My colleagues told me i'm crazy because i always give up my work just to be with my love. I remember before when i left my work to follow my boyfriend in thailand, and now i am planning to give up my work when he visits me next month. i told them i can give up even my life because i love him. THey all laughed at me. What do you think? Could you do the same?

Hmmm. It seems like you really love your boyfriend, although I must say it's not too healthy anymore. You shouldn't revolve your world around him, and give up everything you have just for him. You have got to save some love for yourself. Don't forget, it maybe overly used but it is really true, that you have got to love yourself first before others. I think you should think about your priorities and think about your life as an individual and not as something that you can just disregard whenever your boyfriend asks you too.

The only person that I would give everything I have is for my baby boy. He is the most important person to me and I would do anything in my power to make sure he was happy. I have a wonderful husband who has given up stuff to be with me and of course if it came down to it, I would do the same for him. The job he works has opportunities in the future to take him to a different town in which we might have to move away from the place that I was born and have lived ever since but I would. There aren't really any other people that I would drop everything for.

you are right because for me, When I really loved that guy I will also give up my job or work just to be with him. Because no one can give us happiness the true happiness except our partners.Your not crazy you only show your loved to your love one.

1 love won't break my spirit in life. they are always come and go. love is like, when you don't look for them, they will come to you and when you look for 1, they won't come to you or they come in double or triple. it's just from my experience anyway.

I have done this before. I made him my world, my priority and my focus, it didn't worked out the way I have envisioned our love to be and we finally separated ways. In my opinion, giving up everything for the one you love is not worth it. You must leave something for your own or else when he leaves you, you will end up with nothing. It's always hard to come back from this kind of downfall. I have realized from what I've experienced that you must love yourself first before you can truly love someone. And loving yourself means not giving up your life for other person even if that person means the whole world to you, aside from you family of course. Family are different. Or unless you're already married then you can give up everything for your spouse. But if we're talking about boyfriend/girlfriend then you should not give everything or your life until you say "I do". That's my opinion, I also respect others if they prefer otherwise. :)

I did the same thing! I gave up everything for my "boyfriend" - now is my husband. I left my country, left my decent job, followed him to a new country. Just believe in love and find the happiness, I think this is very important. Best wishes to you and your boyfriend!

Many years ago, I left the United States, my job and my family to come to Italy to marry and be with the man I loved. Was it the right thing to do? Now I am not sure. Now I worry about my mother as she gets older and I can not be with her. But I do know that my husband was the only man I ever wanted to marry, and the thought of being with anyone else was unthinkable. You cannot carry on a long distance relationship forever, so I took the plunge. You do what you have to do.

I think doing this is a bit naive as your just giving up everything for him doesn't seem right or sensible, thats just how it is with young love. Young people in love always give up everything they have for the ones they love, which is why some families have problems and arguments over. I don't think this is a sensible thing to do as you still have the rest of your life left. I personally don't think I can sacrifice so much but then again finding a partner to me is not a top priority, I think this is normal amongst most guys because we just have other and better things think about.

Depends on what level is your love for your boyfriend. You know what after reading your posts, I have found out that we have something in common. We are both in a long distance relationship and my boyfriend is also in the same country as yours. He seldom go home but when He does, I make sure I spend all my time with him. Maybe like you I could give up my life for him but not now. Maybe some time.:D

Hi, I believe you love your boyfriend very much. But firstly, is it worthy for you to give up your work because of him? I can say that Love is blind and if he really loves you alot, your sacrifice is worthy. For me, I give up my job and settle down with my boyfriend at his hometown(he is my husband now).This is the first thing I ever did for him, a big sacrifice from me. But if I were to recalled back, I am bit regret because I love that job. Now, I am a fullltime housewife and no income. I feel like going back to the work force.But having a kid at my side does not allow me to go work at this moment. For sure, one day I will get back to work and earn some income for myself. Good luck!!

I could give up my life for the one i love if i need to, specially for my family. But if he's just my boyriend i'll think twice. He will never let me do crazy things (not even the thought of it) if he really loves me. I married my husband because we sort of "grew up" together, sorted our differences and tried to blend with each other's character. It wasn't only me who has sacrificed on some things but he also did try to adjust for our relationship. It's what i call love. I guess the married people here are already aware of that. lolz

In the past I have moved to another part of the country to be with the person I loved. I have done it twice and I don't regret it. I had to give up the place where I lived and my job, but I didn't mind. I am the kind of person who loves to try to new things and I liked the idea of living somewhere else and trying something different. I looked at the situation from a positive point of view. I had to give up something, but I also gained a lot. I got the chance to be with the person I loved and at the same time I was able to get a lot new experiences and meet new friends

It depends to how much I know its worth to die for him. We really have different kind of people we encounter and few of them are true. If you will give up your life to someone else than your parents. Your not a good child because they almost die just for you to survive in life. Well we have different views in our boyfriend because they are not all the same. Remember that he just make your life a better but he is not the one when you almost die crying to ask candy. :)

No. That's madness. Although i have done crazy stuffs in life but not to the extent that i would give up my life for that someone i love. I guess i'm not that stupid enough to give up my own life. But i'm not saying that you're stupid for doing that. Well, if you think giving up your own life for that someone you love is all worth it then go. But if he cares, he won't make you give up anything just for you to be with him. I just find that selfish. Even if he never asked. *smile*

Depends on the person. If it's either of my parents bro or best mate then i would give up my life. And considering the circumstances also i would take a decision. So depending on what i want to do and when there is really no choice i would do so.

I would give up my life for my family because I love them...:) And, I'm pretty sure they will do the same thing for me...:) It may be easily said than done, but I'm really willing to sacrifice my life just to see them leave...:) I might make them really sad,but I'll die happy...:)

That's what we called "unconditional love" you are willing to sacrifice all the important things for the sake of love and happiness for the ones you love. And that's a very rare person to find like you. I wish i could find somebody like you.

I met my boyfriend on the internet. We live in different towns, with our parents each. A distance relationship requires some sacrifices, because we can`t live like this forever. So, for my love i am willing to do this, to give up my life for him, and for us, to be happy. I think that when you love someone, you would do anything just to be with that person.

Yes, I think that I would. Everyone is different. Some would give up things for the people that they love. Some might not be so willing. However, I'm one of those who would, if I really had to.
