I believe it when they say love is blind, because it makes people forget there selves in the process they get provoked to do things they never thought they can do all because of love.

Love is as blind as we see and allow it. It’s always best to communicate with your partner and smooth out any uncertainties which may be kept inside us, only to explode in anger once stirred. Love is also said to be unconditional but it’s really with conditions , undeniably. Love is the greatest human emotion , partially blind and partially conditional.

Yes it is said that love is blind and I fully believe that but if you are like many people in this day and age in our society it can also be said that we are often blinded and can’t even see that the person who we love and feel like they don’t love us in all reality actually does love us . So sad but true that a person today is to blind to realize that their partner actually does love them and after all the jealousy and accusations argument after argument later on down the road they shamefully and regrettingly realize that they did love them after all but because of their blindness to let love in they missed it !
