Love Is Blind?

They told me that...
  • Love is blind because when you are in love, it doesn’t matter what the world says to you; to you, he/she is the world. Even when your friends tell you that he/she is ugly, you will say otherwise and claim that he/she is the most handsome man/beautiful girl that you have ever seen. Even if he/she has a bad attitude, you will choose not to see it anymore.
  • Love is blind because it encourages you to say or to do things that you would never say or do under normal circumstances.
  • Love is blind because you would normally concentrate on the physical attributes or sexual attractions of the person and overlook all other imperfections and his/her past.
  • Love is blind because you get very emotional rather than logical in your relationships.
  • Love is blind because your lover is your very close friend who watches over you when you are going through a bad break up.

But I presume...
  • Love is not blind when you see something in him/her that other people don't usually see or know. You see something in him/her that make you want to marry and love him/her.
  • Love is not blind when love is knowing him/her for whatever he/she is and accepting it with no regrets.

I believe lovers should take more time and effort to understand one another before they get married. It is said that love covers all sins. True love will only grow with time and effort. And as love grows, the blind lovers begin to undersand how their relationship has developed and mature over the years.... And so they say to themselves, "Till death shall we part."
What do you think?

Actually ive studied a lot about love.Most people believe that love comes from our sincere heart and hard to control.they believe in true love and the myth about soul mate or "the one". i'd used to believe it too, before i broke up.i want to make it short here,
there are two main reasons for falling in love; compensation and unconscious criteria.
person will fall in love is to compensate for some of his own weaknesses. For instance a poor girl may easily attracted to a rich guy or a low confidence girl likes very confident guy. second,there are few criteria that has been set in our subconscious mind for choosing people we fall in love with.It may change as our life change but still some of the criteria will remains.This means that if someone didn’t fit these criteria, the person can never really love the other person even if he was the greatest ever. If you find one that meet all the criterias, you may believed that he is the one. but believe me, there are a lot of people out there that can be your 'One'

It will be a very long comment if i keep writing. anyway, nice post;)

Love is not blind. It sees, but it doesn't mind. =)

This reminds me of a love quotation by Will Moss, "Love is not blind – It sees more and not less, but because it sees more it is willing to see less."
