" Love is Blind " is a famous phrase which has been coined by Shakespeare and was a quite favorite line of his. I appears in several of his plays, including Two Gentlemen of Verona, Henry V and The Merchant of Venice. Modern day research support the view that the blindness of love is not just a figurative matter. A research study by University College London found that feelings of love suppressed the activity of the areas of the brain that control critical thought. So what do you think is Love really Blind ? or One who loves are Blind ?

I don't think being in love instantly make you blind, for me it's accepting the person you love for who he/she is. I think it's that simple. ACCEPTANCE.

If love was blind then there wouldn't have been any cases of ''Love at first sight'' thing.

Love is not blind. In fact love sees all. A man with love can forgive and forget. He can give love with nothing in return because love is unconditional in any ways.

I have a friend right now who is so in love he can't think rationale sometimes. it pisses me off and it makes me worry about him so I text him once in a while to make sure he is doing okay.

Either way, it means a person gets pass the flaws of his/her significant other for the sake of love.

I don't think love is blind. I just think that there are a lot of things that we just don't want to see. Especially in the beginning. As the novelty of the new, loving relationship wears off the blinders tend to come off. Some of the things that we thought we so cute aren't so cute anymore. Basically we're just more accepting when we're in love.

For me I was blind to a lot of stuff do to my love for the man. as my love went away I started seeing things I should have seen long ago. I am glad for this as well. it is something I will always love.

i believe that lovers are blind. sometimes we dont want to face the reality. there are times that we think that someone doesnt love us as much as we do but because we love that guy so much we dont want to face the truth. i believe in that saying. it is more about things that happen in the relationship than about the face of our guy. for example if a guy cheats and his girlfriend forgives him and he cheats on her again. and she decides to stay with him. its because she is really blind about him. because its obvious that he doesnt love her. but she doesnt want to see it.

It depends. I think there are people who are really naive and wouldn't notice suspicious signs of someone's flaws. But there are loads of people who are really smart ang logical, they just accept these problems while knowing the consequences.

love isn't blind! its the unconditional love that makes the lovers blind! i had such terrible experience , my friend just lied me to meet his lover ! Such a fool he was cheating himself! Love isn't mistake , its the mistake the lovers make! they feel love so special they avoid others! finally when the battery is running out, they come to know whose hands would come forward to help them!

I don't think that love is blind I think that the person in love wants to be blind and ignore the truth. To be honest I ve never been blind. I ve been in love and I am now but I always try to see things as they are.
