I was just wondering how you feel about loving someone or being loved so much that you felt smothered from the other person? Can you be loved to much? How much is to much for you? ME I am a passionate person and feel like my Wife is my everything and in my every thought's. Should you love someone that much? Is it natural to feel this way?

Yes, it's very natural to feel that way. Granted, no matter how much you love someone you have to give them their space as well. But it's true love when it's unconditional love. And to truly love someone you have to know how to give them room so that you aren't smothering them. But not so much that they feel as though you don't love them.

I agree and it is very difficult to know how much is to much until you give to much and you are able to talk about it and find out what each others likes and dislikes is and compromise to make the difference. That is true love when you can understand and respect each others feelings and make a medium to satisfy each other.

Yes, I do. I love too much that I don't want to let go. And in return, I have felt to be loved as well too much that it is really instense. For me, I can love more and much more but I always bear in my mind that even if I love too much, I shouldn't forget who I am.

yes i can love someone so much and it is one of the best things that could happen. it is okay but you have to check if how you express your deep emotions is not smothering the one you love. if you are smothering someone so much, then maybe it is jealousy or lack of trust. if you love someone deeple, give her some space. and maybe she would appreciate you more.

well i dont smoother I just think of her all the time she is my soulmate. I am trying to learn how not to think of her so much because i feel like I am the only one that feels that way.I never hear of her saying she thought about me today or dreamed about me so I try not to talk about it any more myself. Even though I still do dream about her I dont talk about it anymore.

No you cannot love someone too much. If you smother the person you love it's not a sign of your overflowing affection, it's a sign of insecurity and fear. Being head over heels in love makes you more aware of their needs, desires and feeling than your own. I think you should love like you love your wife. I think it's great that you aren't afraid to adore her. You have stumbled onto one of the most fulfilling and purposeful things a human can do. In fact I'd go so far as saying that for me at least it's the meaning of life. Bravo!

i don't know about the meaning of life but it is what we strive to receive from our spouse. So many people go through life not knowing the true meaning of love and stay in a relationship that is only mediocre to what they hoped it would be.

If you love someone then of course it's natural to feel this way! I don't think you can love someone too much? Well I suppose you can be obsessed with someone and unrequited love is unhealthy, but when that person loves you back then it's got to be a good thing surely!

it is very rewarding when someone loves you in the way you hoped to be loved. a giving and caring person of your true feelings and an understanding person to how you feel is a great love over all loves. But sometimes we get caught up in our own feelings more because we feel they are being ignored and forget what really matters most.
