I think it is just impossible to get love forcefully, because if anywhere something is to be archived forcefully, then You could find 0% of Love. "Love is like a flower, give it some time, patience and lots of tender loving care; and watch it bloom into something wonderful before your eyes."

You cannot force someone, Love sometimes is a decision that you have to make. Its rather "learning to love" not forcing someone to love you back. Its more of making someone realize to eventually learn to love you in return, but never making them love you because you have told them so.

Maybe it is depend into the situation because there's a possibility that you can learn to love. And somebody tried it.

No way .I do not think that this is a practical idea. One might be 'forced' to show love for someone out of coercion or as a kind of moral or mental pressure . However,Love cannot be forced . Regards

It is impossible to force someone to get true love out of it, we can force someone to love but will that be true and honest love? I wonder! There are arranged marriages where both person are told to love each other because they are married now, so is it not forced love, they live together and then when they realise that there is no other way , they give up and love the other person, for some it can be true love and still for others it remains a dishonest love. So better free the person and let him/her wants to love you.

I don't think a person can ever force somebody to love them. Sometimes the harder they try, the more it pushes the other person away...which is counter productive! I don't think trying to force somebody into loving would ever lead to true love, or a love in the way it's meant to be. It's better to just take it slowly, be respectful, and if love is going to happen, then it will in it's own sweet time. Forcing love from someone who doesn't feel it back will only kill the feeling, not help it to grow and blossom!!

Love can be forced, its a voluntary thing.

Well I don’t think force will work, but tenacity definitely will. If you genuinely love somebody first you have to ensure that the person is unattached or uninterested in somebody else. If that front is clear, you can propose your love but if you are turned down, you should never give up. This is what I mean by tenacity…you should show how serious you are by hanging on and you might just get your rewards.

No, you can't force anybody to love you. I agree with what you are saying here. If you try to force it, then you will get 0% in return. I like the saying about love being like a flower. That is very nice. I love everybody, myself, whether or not they love me in return. That's what we're supposed to do. The bible says that we should love our enemies. It also says to pray for them that despitefully use you. Kathy.
