Is love truly blind? How can one justify this theory or statement? I find it hard to believe in this, but when one pauses to think, it does sound rational. Each one of us has a certain like or dislike not shared by others. What I may see as pretty, need not necessarily be pretty to others. However, there are exceptions; Angelina Jolie and Brad Pritt are well known personalities and are admired for their personality, but not by all. So, given the reason to believe that we all have our personal likes and dislikes, the fact remains that love is indeed, blind.

hi I agree that love is blind, there are things that happen when one falls in love... you accept the person the way they are, you don't see anything bad in him/her... you just don't care about their disadvantages that others might care about... you see the person in a different way.. you actually care for them and are willing to do almost anything to help them stay happy.. one doesn't realize how it feels to be in love, only when they actually fall in love do they know what love is.

Precisely, voldrox, you hit the nail on the coffin. My definition of love need not necessarily be the same for others. I'm sure your definition of love could be completely unimaginative to me, and likewise.

I agree that love is really blind some people choose to love the opposite of him or her. They don't mind how the person look like they are after to the inside or the character. Heart dictates love I think that's why many fall in love in an individual who are opposite of them in physical appearances. I watch a movie I forgot the title I think it is Blind Dating about how blind guy fall in love in an Indian girl. The girl fell in love of him but the problem is the parents of the girl are against him because he is American and blind. I think in loving someone physical appearance should not be the basis to love a person.

OK, let me rephrase this question and ask you, "would the person who looks pretty to you, be pretty looking for another?" I doubt it. Therefore, love is blind. There are no hard and fast rules which defines pretty or attractive, and so my friend, love is blind.

Hi there! In my opinion love is not blind, but the person in love is.. A person who is deeply in love tends to stop thinking right. Often times not choosing to see the true character of a person he/she is in love with, especially if it's the bad side of a person. A person who is deeply in love will accept everything about a person not thinking of what other people would say but only cares for the love she/he feels. To me it's more of like being blinded by love and not love being blind. Ciao!

Love is blind , for somebody i think it's true although i don't think so myself. When you fall in love you will ingore all the shortcomings of your lover. It doesn't matter at all that he is poor, thin, not handsome if you love him. Actually when most couples come to marriage in the end. They might begin to complain each other about sth they never do in the past .

Love may appear blind; but true love has its eyes wide open - it just chooses to not see things. As my mother once told me, "You go into marriage with both eyes wide open; after that you close one eye and half-see out of the other." I Cor. 13 tells us, among other things, that, "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." I don't see anything about love being blind listed here, or anywhere else in the 'love' chapter. Love does, however, choose not to react against wrongdoings, chooses to believe the best, and 'covers a multitude of sins'.

Let me tell you guys a small story, in fact a true incident which I heard from one of my colleagues. When he was in college there was this girl who was not at all beautiful, had a very bad attitude and was not even intelligent. She, according, to my colleague was the single most unpopular girl in the college. Now one day she was found showing the picture of a guy as handsome as Brad Pitt to her batch mates in the college canteen. She claimed that this guy was her boyfriend from Mars or some such place. Nobody believed but generally everybody was sensible and kind enough to say anything. But one guy stood up and shouted, "Now I truly know that love is blind!"

Love is blind for the rich people marrying the poor, the beauty marrying a ugly etc. according to me.

Love is indeed blind...plus deaf and mindless situation. I had such experienced last 15 years ago when I was 17. I never listened to my papa n mum with word name Love. I fought with them until my papa fed up and permitted me to leave my pre-university schooling. I went to marry this guy that I just knew about 3 months. This guy has a work but not qualify to responsive an excess baggage. After 1 year marriage, we had our first baby. and all the way through our marriage, he was so selfish and only thinks of his hobbies with sports car. I normally chip in to buy brand thing, acessories. And suprisingly though its hurt and unfair, but I'm still his wife until today.

i agree. LOVE IS BLIND. base on my experience and my friends. :) i remembered my experience with my ex boyfriend. one day, i got a message from my boyfriend.. but when i red the message.. it's her mom telling me that her son is in the hospital. so i'm freaking worry. everyday i cry. my friends are worrying bout me. told me that they will pray for him. also my relatives. then after 3 days, i got a message again from his no.. and this time it's him.. saying he misses me. telling me his story of being there in hospital. then the next day, i got a message again, it says there that my bf got hemorrhage. he's nt yet awake for 2 days. so again, i'm messed. everyday i'm texting his mom to ask for news,, but he's still not awake. i'm really on pain that time. the feeling, it's killing me. so continuing.. it's friday if i remembered that i planned visiting him on sunday.. but i don't know what come on my mind, i red all the text from his mom.. and then it looks like my bf's text style. i don't knw if i'm just being paranoid. what did i do is borrowed my maid's sim and contact my boyfriend's no. i texted him using that no. and saying it's his friend. and to my surprise, he responded. and it's him. my boyfriend! he's awake and he's not in the hospital! he's in the gym, working out! so the hospital thing is not true! i called him and yes, he lied to me. jerk. i broke up with him that day.. but after 2 days, realizing i need him and i love him, i tried to get him back and try to just forget what happened. and then, we'r together again, love is really blind for me! take note: that time. but i come to my sense that i'm just wasting my precious time to someone who don't deserve my love, so i stay away from him and move on. and thank god, i'm move on. i'm so much happy now.
