Do you believe in love without seeing each other?

There's a saying that Love is blind. Do you believe that. If yes, how much is it blind. Sometimes love may come by seeing one person's beauty. Sometimes it may come by admiring one's talent. Sometimes you may fall in love by realising one's pure heart. Or sometimes, some may love someone for money or something. My question is falling in love without seeing the person is possible? If yes how much true and strong is that love?

Absolutely that is possible ! They have nothing but pure love , no malice or desires. Love is far beyond seeing each other , far beyond seeing physical appearances .It is more on soul meeting and understanding. Only those people who are involved can understand .

I think people could fall in love after having been with each other.If they never see each other,i think they maybe love someone whom they imagine in their mind. Perhaps it exists just like what u said,after all,anything is possible.Just i've never experienced it,so i can not imagine that.

blind people fall in love and they do not see the physical appearance of their lovers. they only know the character and the mind of the persons that they meet. so i will say yes, it is possible to fall in love even if you don't see your loved one.

How did you say without seeing a person,we can understand his/her character and mind? I also accept that we can fall in love without seeing a person. But will that love lead us to happy life?

do you think that people who are blind do not fall in love? we do not need our eyes to know the person's character. we need our ears to listen to their words. a very famous blind person is andrea bocelli and he is happily married.

I didn't think like that my friend. First of all i didn't represent blind people. I said about normal people who fell in love without seeing a person. I also accept that eyes are not needed for understanding one person's character. The person's presence is just enough.

Literally Blind... that's possible, I knew a lot of blind couple.. they never see each other's face but they fell in love and eventually got married.. So I think that a concrete example of falling in love based on pure emotion and affection...

Fell in love without seeing each other may possible. I accept that. But if that couple want to marry, can they have a happy married life? How can they understand each other without seeing. I think this type of love won't lead to happy marriage.

They are happy with thier kids. Happinness is too personal... only the person can define that because we have an individual wants in life and at the same time we have an individual satisfaction.. So we cannot describe one's happinness based on our own standard, wants and satisfaction...

Some people misunderstand LOVE, for me its a verb not a noun. LOVE is an action. Its the way how you care to a person, how you missed him/her and how you are happy being with him/her. I have heard many couples being married without seeing each other before getting married like Arrange marriage! But its not love at the first sight its infatuition, curiousity and others. You can say you love him / her if you are match and you can only tell that if you are being with each other for a period of time to prove it.

If you're just looking on someone's appearance it is not love. It is just admiration. I fell in love on a person which I never met physically and I don't know his appearance. I just know him from texting.

I also accept that. Looking appearance is just admiration. But looking one's talent or good mind(without seeing physically) is also just admiration. Then how can we say it's love? How can we understand one person without seeing and fell in love?

I know some people married without seeing each other in person (like other arranged marriage) and find themselves in love with the person. Maybe it's a rare case, or depends on how an individual take it that way. But for me- seeing the person in person is a must. Not because I want to see his physical looks but to know him better before getting into serious relationship.

In arrange marriage it is different case. There they create a forced love to live happily even if they had seen each other or not. But in love will it lead to happy life? I think seeing the person is important.

Yes I beleived on that, I had a friend who had a girlfriend but they did not see each other, they know each other by texting each other. But after a year they already met each other and until now they are still together. They've been for almost 5 years, and I am so happy for both of them. :)

I am also so happy to hear your friend's story. I wish they will remain happy couple. But only for some people it may leads to happy. How to try to understand each other without seeing?

hi..that's why it is called love is blind because whoever she is you accept her without any doubt.,even your parents show that theres a part that they dont like your partner still you love her,and even shes not perfect for others still your thier beside her.There's a possibility that without seeing here you must fall inlove by your strong feelings.You feel that it is love,actually you feel love by what she says sometimes.But it is nice to be in personal rather than in anything.

Truer & stronger than these people who get addicted to the sparks they make when they get to know each other, mistake that addiction for "love" & tie themselves together before they realize what's really going on. Dating is just a show anyway---an actor & an actress playing a part which they deduce will fit each into the other's 'dream of what a spouse should be.' Then they get married, & the masks come off. The only living person you ever really 'love' is yourself. Blind marriage-partners really know this. They know, "I'm here to help the other love themselves, as they help me love myself." Then it doesn't really matter how they are, as long as they agree that that's how it is.

Well, I do know people who have fallen in love with other people over the computer, although I suspect that they at least saw pictures of each other. Of course there are people who are really blind who have fallen in love as well, so I believe it is possible. It has never happened to me, but I like I said I know a few people who met on line and they are not happily married.

YES! As for me, when you really love someone, you'll love that person for who he/she really is without seeing the person in person. Personality weighs more than looks. Looks can be deceiving but personality really last.

I am not sure how possible it can really be. But I once have fallen in love to a person whom I have never been with but have just known him through frequent phone calls and mails. However, the love did not flourish because somehow along the way, things just changed and the communication stopped. The pain was not as much as the one with the usual kind of relationship set up.

No, I don't believe that LOVE IS BLIND. Love is not blind, they sees but it doesn't mind.I guess so, because I had tried it before. Before I was being in love with my text mate. I was in love with him because he was so sweet and caring even if I did not meet him yet.

What is love? Most people mistook it for the passion between a girl and a boy and the term been over hyped. Love between parents and their children, amongst your siblings is unconditional and forever. A girl seeking a boy and vice versa is the nature of the creation. It all starts with your teenage where people get attracet to looks rather than minds. Love between a girl and boy develops only after seeing each other or after spending time together for some time. But, love without seeing happens only in movies or fairy tales.

People can only fall in love because they "see" lovely things in their partners. People can "see" not only with their eyes but also ears, hands and probably hearts. That's how love blossoms.

Love is not blind before falling in love. You need to have some kind of sense-object contact such as sight, touch, feel, imagination, sound etc. to fall in love. Even blind people have all other senses intact. However, love is blind once you fall into it because you don't see what others see - good or bad whatever.

I think its definitely possible and happens more then we think. The many people who chat online to each other and end up falling love with never seeing each other. Or how about people who work for the same company but in a different state. They fall in love over the phone. Falling in love in hearing someone words that they are saying to you. You like what you are hearing and you fall for that person through the words spoken.
