Love hurts.... or does it?
January 5, 2007 7:45am CST
Why do we say love hurts? Love never hurts. It's the absence of love that hurts isn't it? The English language puzzles me at times, as does a lot of sayings. Does anyone have any sayings that when thought about in greater depth makes them not make any sense at all?

i think Love does hurt, when you love someone you give that someone a power to hurt you, the absence of love can hurt for a time.. but you will eventually get over that quickly.. i suppose. but when there is love in you and you cannot seem to get the other person's love for you, or that person keeps doing things that can hurt you... then that is where the statement that love hurts. i dont know... sometimes i would think its the people who hurt you and not "love" itself... it can be really confusing... right? just a 4 letter word but still so hard to understand.

Well...I think you got that from the song of Nazareth which is entitled 'Love Hurts'. And as the song says... love wounds, it scars, love is just a lie, take u to a lot of pain...love hurts... Maybe the composer of that song had been broken hurted that's why he wrote those lyrics. As some of the people say... when you truly love, be prepared for the pain and hurt because love relatioship is not always perfect, its not always a bed of roses. Sometimes when you truly love your bf/gf, you expect too much that it will be recipocated in return just as the way you have loved your partner. If it fails to your expectation, then you feel hurted. Too much love is sometimes dangerous. Well...there are english phrases that need to be really analyzed and understood in depth, but I can't recall any of those at this moment...maybe later If I happen to come accross with those phrases.

"Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain." ~Leo Buscaglia~
