I don't believe that love is blind. It's just what we are hearing if something is wrong but the truth is Love is sacrifice. Because if there is Love, there is no pain and if there is Pain the pain itself is LOVE. That might be happening to your friend right now. But remember that Love begets love and Hate begets hate. If you are concerned of your friend, let him see the negative doings of his girlfriend but do not attack the person. If you will be attacking his girlfriend, the tendency for him to do is to defend. Better do it in another way that he can see the truth... Give to him the patience he needs and later on he will see your point. Show him that a good friend will never want to let his best friend down.

Since you have already told your friend that this girl is cheating there is unfortunatly little else you can do.It sounds inevitable that this relationship will not be a long term one and will more then likely end soon, and will probaly crush your friend. All you need to do as a friend is just be there to help your friend pick up the pieces. He needs to figure out for himself that this sorry excuse for a female is not worth his love and by all means, don't tell him "I told youso"

your friend doesn't believe in you just like that. maybe he wants a proof. you cannot blame him with that. he truly loves her according to you. as a friend, talk to him. tell him what you saw (if you did. if your not sure with the situation then do not hurt him by just saying his girlfriend having an affair with other man. talk to him.. and if he doesn't, maybe his own eyes sees the truth.

I agree love is blind. Because i had an experience with that. All i can say to those people who is really blind with love is that look for another person who really love and respect you as a being. It's not easy to do but try to find new things that can make you fun and busy than thinking of this person who is a cheater and very crazy with another guy. It is stupidity and i hate thos persons who are really cheater and selfish.

You cannot do anything but at least you tried. It's his choice, he is madly in love obviously, and yes, he love is blind! If one day his heart gets broken, as a friend just offer your shoulders for him to cry on; you don't need to say 'I told you so!'.

love can definately be blind mate, hope your friend finally opens his eyes and sees that the girl doesn't worth it. He doesnt deserve to be treated like that, but he needs to use his head a bit more perhaps. good luck

[b] I am very touched to know about this. This is sad. If you are his childhood you must know him better than we do. What I would like to suggest is ,since all your efforts have failed in reducing his passion for her, try to introduce a new girl who is beautiful and cares about him more than her(about whom he is mad).It will take some time but I suppose this should work.

YA IT HAPPENS. WE CAN SAY LIKE THIS THAT LOVE IS BLIND BUT ITS NOT ALWAYS TRUE. DEPENDS FROM PERSON TO PERSON. JUST BE WITH HIM WHENEVER HE WILL REALISE THAT THE GIRL IS CHEATING HIM HE WILL RETURN BACK TO YOU ONLY. SO JUST BE AROUND.

Yes, love is a blind thing. Love is funny, live is exciting but blind all the way. It does not have the discretionary power of judging between good and bad, between right and wrong. When you are in love with anyone or anything, you turn to blind, stone-blind to say the least. When you are in love, you are head and heel over love. Being in love or for that matter being blind to you love for anything or anyone, you see no reason in having partiality in your veins. When you are partial, you cannot judge anything with wise discretion. One more thing, being in love means being loyal, blindly loyal. Partisan mentality evolves out of blind loyalty of blind love. When you are partisan, you lose your power of judging a situation wisely and impartially.

I don't believe that love can be blind. Love can never be blind. If it is, then it is not love but something else, could be attachment. Love with attachment is not love but it is some kind of fulflling some desire or need. The situation which you shared about is not real love.

Yes it is absolutely blind the couple so badly fall for each other that they see no other world other then their partner......we go completely blind........we see nothing but our partner.....the partner seems to be the most beautiful or handsome person.....they seem to be the most fabulous and wonderful person.......i would just suggest one thing keep your eyes open wide and do not go blind when you fall in LOVE.

no it is just that some people are so stupid that they will not see or hear the truth just leave your friend to suffer and when he finds out the truth tell him 'i told you so you idiot'
