Love is blind – not blind that u can’t see their flaws and faults but because you love them so much that you intend to ignore it and hoping for them to change in time.

Love may be blind. Normally this condition is mostly attributed to the young-at-heart. It might even be described as “foolish love” by third parties. However because this human emotion is so deep, so unconditional, the “blindness” can be detrimental to the beholder. On the positive side, it will be a blessing as it moves one’s resultant sentiment to become tolerant and forgiving of fellow humans and of Creation itself. True love emcompasses all dark dispositions. Love lights up your life!

Only little pieces of what each of you said are true, which when put together reveals the majority of the picture but not the full version and the most important part, that few are afraid to admit because to do so makes them have the depth of a kiddie pool…love is not 100% blind because of people who put value in what they see with their eyes and put to much importance on physical features…it’s a funny dichotomy

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.

- Joel August 30, 2020

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 !
