Hi there guys.. What do you think about this? Many people said that love is blind. But I don't agree with it. I think love is not really blind it's the lovers who are being blind because of love. In fact love can see and understand everything good or bad. But it is we who decide if we're gonna accept it or not. For example your partner has a lot of bad habbits and you can see it. Because you love him you are trying to change him/her and at the same time you are trying to understand his'her situation and sometimes you are just ignoring it. So we can't say that Love is blind but love makes lovers blind. What is your opinion about this guys.. please share your ideas..

hi earl! well definitely you're right love is not blind. why? love does'nt requires the sense of sight coz love is to be felt, and it is shown through actions. loving someone needs understanding, trust, loyalty and acceptance. maybe others would say that love is blind because let say for an example; a rich man who fall inlove with a poor girl, that is not being blind that is a sign of true love. accepting whoever and whatever your love one is; that is ACCEPTANCE.. sometimes attitudes you don't want from you're partner but you try to adjust and understand him/her or explaining why you don't like such thing in him/her; that is UNDERSTANDING. though there are someone whom maybe better than you're partner still he's/she's the one you love; that is LOYALTY. though rumors you have heared and you're afraid he/she might cheat you but still you're there for him/her; that is TRUST..thus, lovers are blind. BUT everything that is too much is bad. never allow a person to be your priority if you are just his/her option. love is needs mind and heart, not just mind alone, you won't be happy; not just heart alone they might fool you.

Yeah got it blue_Rain thanks for your very good response about this topic. I agree with you 101% LOL.. Love is a very Complicated thing.. It's not just a piece of cake.. It's not even a game.. It's really good to be inlove with someone but just what you've said love needs mind and heart.. Mind to understand and a heart to accept what you have understand. if this things doesn't exist; relationship will not lasts.

I agree with you that what makes a person blind is because of love. It does not mean that they are blind because of beauty but a person blind because they always consider the fault of their partner. They always forgive when their partner commit a mistakes over and over again.

It is not good to tolerate partners for them not to take advantage you and your feelings. It needs a discipline sometimes for them to know your value.

Love is not blind! how come love is blind? if love is blind you can not see the LOVE!for the people who truly, deeply in love with there love ones despite of indifferent.Like for normal person fell in love with handicapped person, not much beautiful for very handsome guy.That why its called "LOVE"!You appreciate what's the beauty in her not only the appearance but what the attitude.

That's true and I agree with you 101%.. true love does not count more on the physical appearance of your partner. But it counts more on the feeling.. Love can see the smallest and greatest thing in your partner. You can see his/her weak points and strength.. From then you will try to understand and accept his/her situation..Happy lotting friend..

hello earlzhan, Well, Love can make a person blind because they tend to oversee things and always look on the bright-side. probably it's more like tolerating the person and getting used to the behavior,habit and attitude. how ever, if the behavior and attitude doesn't last long, then there's no doubt that the person will not last and the relationship will broke apart.

Thanks for sharing your idea about this.. I agree with you.. it's true that sometimes because we're inlove we just see on the bright side and we tend to ignore the bad side of our partner. I think it's the matter we called Acceptance..

This is a common saying but love is not blind. One actually sees things but decide to go ahead inspite of everything. enjoy life!

i believe that love makes the lovers blind, there are some people out there who are very much in love with the person who is already married and all the people around her/him is against with that love he's feeling, but no matter how the world is against it, still love bears it all.

I believe in that too.. love is not blind but the love itself that makes the lovers blind.. In my own experience, I don't see any failures in my ex's personality.. but the people around me can see it.. they always keep on reminding me that he's not good enough for me.. and i can't see that.. the love i have for him makes me blind for years.. now that i've already move on.. that makes me realized that my friends were right.. and i really thank them for that..
