I was listening to one of Joe's song entitled "Another Used To Be" a while ago. This topic's title was mentioned in the first line of the chorus.. And it got me thinking.. Is it possible? To LOVE someone that you DIDN'T like? =/

What I think happens more often than not is that there are things that we don't like about the person we fall in love with. I know with my ex there were things about his attiude that I didn't like, but I still loved him. I guess that's where the saying that "love is blind" comes in. I think we just overlook their faults in our love for them and hope for the best.

That makes a whole lot of sense. =) 'Love is blind' really goes well with this stuff. =) What people doesn't like about their partner is often overshadowed by their love for them. Nice response. I like it. =)

opposite attracts right? then, that's it. sometimes you'll never know that you'll fall inlove to someone whom you never imagined to be your gf/bf. others even fall inlove to their best enemies as the saying goes, the more you hate the more you love. nothing is impossible, its just unimaginable.(",)

I see. Well, I've seen people fall in love with people that they said they won't ever fall in love with. The mysteries of this thing called "Love". *sigh*

Yes,its when you meet someone and then your first impression of him wasnt that good so you didnt like him that much..Then after a few more days of talking or a lot of meeting ups you feel something differently already..I had an ex boyfriend before that I didnt like first time I saw him,he was quite boyish and has thing attitude of bragging a bit.he wants to act mature but he doesnt look like it..So i didnt like him on the first meeting but he asked my bestfriend if he could ask me out.I was pushed by my bestfriend to have a relationship with him because he was quite popular in the world of sports he is playing in,so i did..well to cut the story short he is still the love of my life but we already broke up.

Yes. It is very possible. when I met my now husband, all I was looking for was a friend to hang out with and spedn time with. We have now been together for 15 years and married 12 of them.

yes it's possible... do you know the song "love moves in mysterious ways"? then that's the answer to your question. love is what makes people keep on going despite all the bad things that had happend to us. It is possible for us to love a person that we didn't like before, for the reason that maybe you had seen something good in him/her... We can changed our minds about some people beacuse of the situations we see in them...

So it is more like your 'first impression' of the person? I see.. The way I thought about it was being in a current relationship wherein you don't like the one you have with you, but you love her. =/ Got confused there for a bit.

It has never happened to me,but i suppose that it's possible to love someone you don't like physically. Maybe those people who don't really care about how their partner looks like.... But i think that it's difficult that this happens to a broad majority of people, simply because first physical impression is often very descriptive of what might and might not happen afterwards.

Yeah. I agree. Most people just cares about how their partner looks like physically. And that some people tend to realy love someone whome they do not like physically (Did I just make sense?) =/

Yes it is possible, sometimes even his the most liar and he always cheat you, you can't see that or your not realizing his being unfaithful to you because you love him.

Exactly. Love overshadows all faults. =)

This is one style of irony in literature. Well good line, it makes us think. Is it really possible? May be if the disliking is followed by loving then it is always possible. But loving and disliking at the same time, I dont think so.

Yeah. It got me stumped too. But I know people who love their partners eventhough it is different when physicals is involved. Weird. =/

well, NEver love someone if you didnt like her/him. You will not be satisfied and happy knowing that u dont like him/her, or its because u are trying to love and like him/her for a several reasons, like taking advantage with all of the things she/he had..but if you realy a risk taker then u go for it..and i beleived u will learn how to love and like her for what ever she is. it takes a long time to realize that u really love her very much..then u can sing the song "I will love u forever and ever as i could.." there is a magic in love.."

"NEver love someone if you didnt like her/him" Some people actually do. It is just a surprise of their lives when they find out that they actually are in love with that certain person whom thy do not like. it happens. =)

i think that's what people call 'love at first sight' falling in love with the looks of a person, and then u're in this relationship and u realize u don't really like what kind of person they really are. and by the time you know, you're so deep into it, that most people just give up and think it is love and that love's just hard. it's complicated, i know.

yes! that's very much possible....That's what happen to a very close friend of mine . . . So now i believe that we can learn to love someone we don't like.

It is possible. But what about LOVING someone you have AT THE MOMENT yet you don't like him? =/
