Five Reasons Why Love Sucks

Published by Shesho in Relationship
May 18th, 2008

Why love is a waste of your time.

  1. First, the expression most commonly used with love is “falling in love.” There is no better word to describe it. It is indeed “falling” in love, and that’s what sucks about it. You are tricked into it like an addictive gambling game, and then you are tripped, and you fall, and you keep falling in a seemingly endless spiral. And, like everything that falls, you eventually hit a bottom, and it will be hard and painful. Falling in love only gives you an incurable ache when you reach the end.
  2. Second, love is blind. You will walk into love without seeing it, and you will follow love without noticing it. It will dictate your life, and you will not know it until the blindfold is gone, and you love no more. Only then will you realize what kind of sheep you had been while under the spell of love.
  3. Third, love hurts. When you fall in love, there are many times when your feelings are not returned, resulting in a painful void in your heart. The pain will seem unbearable, and was not worth the heady feeling you got before your love was not returned. After realizing the truth behind the disadvantages of love, and after experiencing the heartbreak for yourself, will you only realize how meaningless and futile your love was. Your love will only cut you open in the end.
  4. “All is fair in love and war.” This commonly used saying is very true, and will ony result in your downfall. Love often strikes many people at once, and for the same thing or person. Competition is what war is about, and love is just the same. You will compete with others to show your affection, and prove your love is most worthy. But, so will everyone else. When competition reaches your friends and family, and you focus only on the art of competition for love, you begin to lose the things you held dear before love struck you. Chances are, you will lose the competition to someone else, and you will be left with nothing, having sacrificed everything to try and win.
  5. The most important reason that love sucks, and is not worth your time: your love is no more important than someone else’s. Unless you are some sort of Casanova or Eros, the Greek god of Love and Passion, your love is only important as long as someone believes it is. To keep someone in need of your love, it takes a lifetime of adoration and spontaneity, or else they will look to someone else for the same love and adoration. In the end, love can only hurt you.

    That was fantastic and well spoken….Love does suck, especially when you spend time and money on someone who isn’t worth it. Because even if you find someone, they just leave you anytime they please. And you never tell a woman she’s beautiful and never give your whole heart to her..chances are that she’ll think that she’s way to good for you… However some guys do that as well. Have a great life people.

    Some guy hanged himself at in one of the nearby High School Districts cause he got rejected by a girl for Prom.
    I guess he really loved her and when he heard her say no. I just ended his life. =( He couldve been successful

    whoops spelling mistake.
    He just ended his life. All for a prom night. He could had a career and so get married in the future possibly.

    It hurts me everyday when I like a girl. Im always single and never lucky enough to be competitive to have a GF.
    Im such an epic fail at love.
    meh =(

    You speakith the truth. As far as I’m concerned, LOVE SUCKS. It would be better to avoid the opposite sex until you are out of high school, it saves you from a few painful memories.

    So true. Some girl I loved was only associated with me because of my money. Even so I stayed with her because I “loved” her. No matter how horrible she treated me, I always wanted to be with her but now I realize that it was a sheer waste of life. I feel like giving up on love sometimes. (T_T)

    If love sucks so much why do our lives revolve around it? We were made to love. Pain is going to come, but why live if only to seclude yourself from the possibility of rejection. Wake up. Love’s the only true, pure thing in this world. If you’re not even going to try for it why even live??

    I think this sums it up…

    When the routine bites hard
    And ambitions are low
    And the resentment rides high
    But emotions wont grow
    And were changing our ways,
    Taking different roads
    Then love, love will tear us apart again

    Why is the bedroom so cold
    Turned away on your side?
    Is my timing that flawed,
    Our respect run so dry?
    Yet theres still this appeal
    That weve kept through our lives
    Love, love will tear us apart again

    Do you cry out in your sleep
    All my failings expose?
    Get a taste in my mouth
    As desperation takes hold
    Is it something so good
    Just cant function no more?
    When love, love will tear us apart again

    I believe I am starting to see that in the relationship I am having right now.You know this sort of made me feel better about the whole thing and I thank you for it.I love my girlfriend and proved in every way that I love her and she could trust me but when it came to her proving her love and that I can trust her it is like talking to a brick wall and especially when what I ask is not too much to ask for.

    Love is like a poison, which kills you slowly. No matter how hard you try, you can not escape from it. I never thought, I would fall in love in my life, when I fall, fall hardly. We loved each other very much, despite of that, she got married to other guy. Now, it’s been nearly 5 years when last time I saw her in Valentine day. It does hurts and there is no word to describe it.

    so true..

    when you fall in love its basically like falling into a pit.. you hit the bottom and either decide to lay there and suffer.. or try to move on.. and climb out.. But eventually you will love again and fall into other pits.. and its just a never ending cycle. Love is the most powerful emotion and theres no way to fight it.. it will crush you over and over. Even when you think your numb to that emotion.. eventually youll fall in love again.. and it will hurt just as bad when you hit the bottom…

    Listen up, turn it up and rock it out
    party on, I wanna hear you scream and shout
    this is real, as real as it gets
    I came to get down to get some fucking respect
    taking it back to hardcore level
    you better be ready, put your pedal to the metal
    taking it back to hardcore level
    you better be ready, put your pedal to the metal.


    Whoa I’ll never give in

    And I just wanna be, wanna be loved
    Whoa I’ll never give in
    Whoa I’ll never give up

    And I just wanna be, wanna be loved

    I want domination
    I want your submission
    I see you’re not resisting
    To this temptation
    I’ve got one confession
    A love deprivation
    I’ve got a jet black heart
    It’s all fucked up and it’s falling apart

    And I just wanna be, wanna be loved

    I’ve got another confession
    I fell to temptation
    And there is no question
    There was some connection
    I’ve got to follow my heart
    No matter how far
    I’ve gotta roll the dice
    Never look back and never think twice

    Whoa I’ll never give in
    Whoa I’ll never give up
    Whoa I’ll never give in

    That’s the deal; you get no respect
    You’re gonna get yours
    You better watch your fucking neck

    Take your past and burn it up and let it go

    Honestly what is the point? People just give you fake smiles and are usually afraid to be seen with you. They make you buy them things and pretend to show that they care. But through all this you know you\’re just being used and you fall in love and break something, they say its their heart but there is no heart. Nor in me, is a heart. I am incapable of love. I don’t care how hot you are or nice you are, i don’t need anyone.

    So true. I dedicated my last two years to a guy I loved, and he said he loved me back, but nothing ever happened. One day he would go crazy and follow me to somewhere and show up as a surprise just ’cause he wanted to be with me, the next he would just be bitchy. And then I would cry my eyes out, only to see him make it up to me the next day with cheap talk. Why in hell did I believe whatever he told me…
    8 months ago I decided to banish him from my life just like that and I succeeded, after two months I finally got him out of my mind and didn’t think about him every day anymore. But I never pushed my love for him aside, I just tucked it away. And so, when a good friend told me she had spoken to him that same day and he had told her that he still thinks about me every day, but that he just hopes I’m happy and doesn’t even bother… Well, my feelings came back, because there was hope. It’s true, you can’t escape it. I just know something’s not right with him, that I’m his little game, but I just don’t want to believe myself. Love is blind indeed, and I’m seeing myself fall for it. It’s quite pathetic, actually…

    love is just the biggest fraude in the world.
    once you have given yourself completely to the person you love everything falls apart!
    but when that happens you can see how much friends care for you and why they are important to be held close..

    love is hard to describe and yes it is a nice feeling, but it is the only thing that could break someone’s heart into a million pieces without even touching it…

    Falling in love is a waste of time if the person you’re falling for isn’t worth it. It can be the most amazing thing in the world, to find someone you can give yourself so completely to, and know you have faith that that person will be the person who wipes away your tears, not the one who causes them. And then you cry more when you realise you’ve been a complete idiot.
    You never fully get over a heartbreak. It changes you for good. And no matter who you meet next, who you sleep with or are once again stupid enough to fall in love with, that pain was still felt, those tears were still cried, that twat still hurt you.


    Love’s the biggest gamble of life. And gambling’s so addictive. You’ll lose a thousand times just to get that big win…and then it was all suddenly worth it. There is someone out there who will love you just as much as you love them, and you’ll both feel like the luckiest people alive – just to have each other.

    That’s what we all bet for.

    You are so damn right Alex.. I completely agree.. love is entirely like poker, people know the risk involved.. but are willing to spend a lot in it waiting for the big moment and always end up getting disappointed.

    Love IS a complete waste of time. Its just a foolish illusion that we all human beings live under the influence of. Its completely baseless and if you spend the time that you usually allot to love, on planting trees.. it will benefit the environment at least and instead, you could save planet earth in place of indulging in destroying yourself by loving somebody.

    Love is an illusion my friends, an illusion.

I am doing all i can to stop love, but nothing has worked so far.

    This is my experience of love. I met a girl when I was sixteen and I completely fell in love. I mean head over heels in love, I was obsessed and I spent like everyday from then until now,which is a year and a half, thinking about her and writing about her and thinking of reasons to call or text her. I mean I really adored her. I really thought it was meant to be. Everybody else in my school did as well. Like everyone thought we liked each other and people thought we were going out because we spent so much time hanging out. I even went to my grad with her.
    But you know what sucks. She never liked me. Well she did but only as a friend. I found this out to my horror when I plucked up the courage to ask her out. I had pictured the scene for months. I would ask her out, She would agree and we both would just spend all our time with each other in love with each other.
    This was not the case. Instead when she found out I liked her, not only did she reject me but she completely ignored me as well. She started telling people how much she hated me and I really felt like I wanted to die. Still do in fact. What a waste. I love her and it hurts so much that she doesn’t feel the same. I really felt like it was meant to be. I heard that being in love was like floating on a cloud, like nothing can harm you. Well I’m in love and I just feel empty and depressed. I still want to call her so much. I know its not rational. In fact its retarded. So much for falling in love.

    An unequal balance hits home like a hammer on an anvil.

    I’ve had feelings for a friend of mine for 4+ years now, and finally asked her to Homecoming this year. She said yes, though “as friends”. But now, after it’s all done, I feel as if we are much further apart than before all of this… It feels like she doesn’t really want to be close friends anymore…

    100% true. You don’t have to feel a certain age to know that in the end, love is just gonna bite you in the ass. Its like falling off a building. Once you hit the bottom, its gonna hurt really bad. And your gonna stumble to get out of the “street” so you dont get more hurt.

    Everyone here seems to of had their heart broken. I have been there as well. I recently have started dating this girl that I know for a fact is the one! She makes me happier than anyone I have ever known. Last night I gambled our relationship and told her I loved her. I had no idea how she would take it. But it turns out She felt the exact same way! I have found that being in love is even greater than anything. Having someone love you is the best feeling in the world! All of those people who don’t realize this would have to be crazy! There is someone out there for everyone, you just have to be willing to find them!

  53. Posted November 12, 2009 at 5:30 pm

    Wow, this author is very right. I fell in love a little while ago, thought it was great, then BANG! Dumped. No reason was given to me, just dumped. I think it’s all my fault that it happened, that I wasn’t there enough for her. I tried, honestly, but I just make a miserable boyfriend. I CAN have feelings for someone, I AM able to reciprocate, and I DO still love her. It’s just, with my disposition, being aloof, serious, and kind of shy, I can’t really warm up to people, even to those who are dear to me. So, if you are reading this, “you know who”, then I’m sorry for not living up to your expectations. As much as I feel as though it’s my fault, however, it doesn’t change how much it STILL hurts. Love DOES suck, and it distracts us from more important things in life, like helping people to survive in other countries, acing an exam, or simply having fun. Yeah, without love and bonding, society wouldn’t be the same because there would be less people surviving, blah blah blah…
    True, but now, we have the technology to make babies in test tubes. We can populate the world WITHOUT love, which is why it first came into existence; to ensure the survival of the species. Today, LOVE IS OBSOLETE. We can do without it. It’s just a waste of time, time, time. Which directly affects the amount of money one can make, which is, in modern times, what ensures our OWN survival. Replace LOVE with MONEY? Yes, because that is what matters now. Money. Why love, when it will only hurt you?

    … because it feels so GOOD to be loved. That’s why.

    Love, an alternative way to say “I Hate You”

  60. Posted December 20, 2009 at 5:19 am

    people say when your young you dont really know what love is because your to young and naive…but…love has no age preffrence…you dont choose love..love chooses you…as dum as it may sound, its true…when i was in middle school i fell for a boy who changed everything in my life..i mean he was undiscribable to me..but just like every girl\’s real life fairy tale…he played with my mind..the crazy thing about this was that we never talked..we were diffrent clicks…kind off like Rome And Juliet..our clicks didnt like eachother..when we had classes with each other he would be at one end off the room and me at the other ..but when noone was looking we would always look at eachother…and i don mean a simple stare…i mean we would literally look at eachother threw out the whole class period…it was like that for one year..he would do little things like pass by my desk and knock on it pretending to pass by unoticed and then he would turn around and give me that look that only i knew..or when i whent to sharpen my pencil next thing i knew he would be behind me the funny thing was his pencil was already sharpend…little things that noone notced from either of our clicks…in my mind i tought he liked me..shiit i was wrong…that is how blind love can be..next year i find out he goes out with this girl i was cool with…but what suckd was that when he was with her..and i passed by or something he would always stare at me..or he would hug her close but look at me …suddenly he started doing drugs,he got in a gang,he got kicked out of school couple of times…but he still had the guts to come back and look at me like nothing happend….then highscool came….he only when to highscool for half of freshmen year and then….he vanished….a friend of mine told me that he heard he got a girl pregnet not that long ago…its been 5 years sence i first saw himin 7th grade…im a junior know in highschool..the pain still kinda hurts me when i think about it….i have liked many guys but i can honestly say he was the 1st one i loved..but im a strong girl…and i know life goes on…honestly love is a tough teacher but a good lesson…the lesson i learn is not to trust anyone with your heart or open up really fast to them…unless ure sure they will do the same…and you will know that when you know the person completly..spending time and actually talking for once..i guess you know you found love when it actually stops hurting so much..cuz noones perfect so noone can love you perfectly i guess thats life…for know im just a girl with a little thing inside me severely damaged called a heart..i just hope one guy can show me that there not all the same….but i dont think that will ever happen..atlest never to a girl like me..

    absolutely true! agree with you, split up with my girl today, realized, that love sucks! i think, it`s better to be with that one, who likely to you and to whom you likely, but not with that one you love. Cuz split up with that person is way much easier, than with that one you love. Good luck everyone with you boy/girlfriend and don`t love them too much

And the best part is reading about how great the sex is with her new boytoy on her status updates…love and feelings just suck in general.

    For the last year, I’ve madly fell in love with a girl, a girl that fits me just right. I always feel good when I’m with her and that I don’t need anything else to make me happy. When I told her I loved her, she said that she wanted to be friends only, but that I was the nicest, most awesome person in the world. She also said that she didn’t loved herself enough to love someone back. It only took her a few weeks to start going out with another guy: my best friend(a guy that I met 12 years ago and was my only friend during my school years). So I always see them together, and I’m always thinking about hanging myself. I can’t take it anymore. Love and life sucks.

    I’m nearly 44 and gave up on the idea of love many, many years ago. I’m not into pain and having my soul sucked from me. Love is a biochemical reaction that blinds you to the truth about another person so that you can brood with them…and then it’s too late to leave their nasty ass, you have to stay to raise the kids. I don’t think I could ever shackle myself to another person…

  73. sad truth of love
    Posted February 22, 2010 at 7:09 pm

    Totally true, i want to add my little bit too: love is complicated; as in it is the most beautifull thing to people find true love, but to everybody else it just plaing sucks. love makes you dependent on the other person instead of yourself, which in that sense makes you weak, because your love and therefore your happiness depends on that one person, and that person will always dictate when you are happy and when you (eventually) will feel sad and depressed, especially when they leave you ( which in todays world,will probbly happen). It also sucks because it recquires you to make huge risks and sacrifices to get to it, and ussually they do all end up in vain. You can spend all the money on them in the world to keep eachother happy, but in the end it still depends on the other person, not you. Some people become so infatuated with the idea of love because they think they found it, even if it’s there first time ever having feelings like that. the feeling will drive them crazy and make them do real retarded things that they wouldn’t normally do in other situations. but in the end it will all fall apart, they will be left with that depressed feeling of lonelyness, and also not even worth all the work. True love used to exist, where you could meet someone and be with them for life, where it wasn’t such a risk to be in love. but in todays Godless, corrupt, and superficial world, where 50 % of marriages end in divorce, people cheat left and right, everygirl looks for the bad boy even tho they all end up hurting the girl in on way or another, and people look at love so superfically, love is very rare.

    Love is not blind, actually it is the opposite. Love has big red eyes that he needs to see where he is taking you. The persons who are in love they are blind. So blind that they can’t see that love only is leading them to a place of pain. He throws them into a bottomless pit where they begin lucky, but end up crushed and hurt, and the best part is that you can’t climb up the same way you fell down. You need to find another way up. Another person to love where exactly the same thing will happen, but then to, you will be too blind to see it.

    I’ve know her for years i waited for her to grow up so I could be with her. I met her when she was 8 now 16, Our parents are best friends so I’ll always be close to her.
    She reaches her teen years she becomes really ignorant, I tried to tell her over and over that I liked her, I even took her out one night so I could talk to her face to face, it was useless.
    One afternoon i decide to tell her once and for all.
    She Is alone with one guy I ask her (is he your boyfriend?), she answers – YUP.
    2 weeks later I go with my parents to scotland, I had a terrible time for 2 reasons: the weather was terrible and i couldn’t stop thinking about her.
    I spent the entire winter trying to forget her, it was useless, I saw her again and everything came back.
    Months pass, trying to forget her, she becames more and more ignorant, but I still have to go to her house and see her.
    1 night, I finally tell her that I LOVE HER, she replies “I think I already knew, but I’m sorry I already have someone” and that was the last real conversation i had with her. And now to make things even worse she became an EMO/gothic/darkside(what ever u want to call it).
    And then I just though” The 8 year girl that I met, that used to play with me, chased me, etc… is dead, I mean she would NEVER go gothic, this is not the same girl.
    My feelings are finally going away (I think), but still will always see her, because our parents are best friends.

    Posted November 7, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    There are plenty of comments on this subject huh?
    I would guess that, in general, the ones that are in love and on a great relationship with their partner will always defend love, say that is the most beautiful thing in the world. On the other hand, the ones that are not in this situation and had/are having bad experiences with love will say that it sucks and that it is unworthy.

    Me? Well, I won’t say my personal thoughts on it since I think that they would be biased, but one thing is for sure, love is surely a big bet. A big bet with everything you got, a bet on someone else, a bet that this person will correspond this so valuable feeling that you have for her/him. That being said, I would like to advise everyone that reads this to think really well before starting a serious relationship, be one hundred per cent sure before engaging yourself completely with someone.

    The most important thing is, NEVER engage yourself with someone more than this person is engaged with you. This is crucial, and even if you are more engaged, do everything you can to not let the other person notice.

    I can’t say I agree with this. Yes, love can be frustrating and painful, but you will ultimately be a better and stronger person for it( if the person you with is deserving of your love). Do not be fearful of falling in love. You need love to grow. You need love to elevate. But, as we all know, all things level out.

    Also, I must say I hate #5. One of the greatest and dangerous qualities of love is that it has free will. This is the essence of our humanity. We live and love FREELY. The comparisons with the Gods of Love also leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Its on the edge of narcism and having someone dependent on you. And also, you are not ever in love with someone just to amuse and entertain them. If you are having to give that much of yourself constantly, then Im afraid to say that she probably does not respect or even not appreciate your individuality. #5 is pretty close to evil.

    I don’t think any of that is true. Not if you really love someone, not if they truely love you back. I love someone very much, the only reason love is a problem for me is because I never want to be away from him, but there is something in the way. It’s not another girl, it’s a responsibility and the law at the momment. But it is very painful having to wait for him, but when i get to keep him to myself i am never letting go again.

    If you love yourself, only then can you be truly loved by someone else, because you’re doing things in your life that make you happy – hobbies, work, partying, whatever – so you don’t have to change or “act” like someone else, you don’t have to act like the person your lover wishes, he loves you just as you are. So, do what you want to make yourself happy, and your true lover will be there…someday soon hopefully. I learned the hard way. From now on, I’m doing things in my life that make me happy. And, I will reject those things or people who turn me off. God Bless. Q.

    After reading your comments, I have one thing to say- love is a necessary part of being a human, but it doesn’t have to take the form of sexual attraction/relations/desires. That seems to be the driving force of wanting to be in a relationship, doesn’t it? And if you say that’s not the main reason, guess what? You wouldn’t want to be with them if you could never. You’d be lying to say you only wanted to have the “loviest love”. Well, that’s not what marriage/relationships are fully about. I’m NOT saying that “attraction love” doesn’t have real love in it. I’m saying it’s no more purer than friend/family/kin love, it is just saturated with hormones that bond you more (namely oxytosin and related chemicals). Don’t think of me as Mr. Science, though. I view the world spiritually as well. Love is a beautiful thing that binds people and makes them feel part of a bigger picture. Unfortunately, though, the sexual attraction thrown in there just makes you more vulnerable to pain and more feeling of devastation because you put in so much effort to keep someone your monogamous partner, trying outrageous effort to win mutual love. That, unfortunately, will wilt quite easily if both minds aren’t on nearly the same goal, whatever that is, and it takes far more effort to be in that kind of love. Both must be willing to work even through the times you don’t want to love each other, which ALWAYS happens in any relationship. It’s an obstacle. And as we’ve probably all experienced, you have a great idea before you go to bed, but you wake up thinking that that was the stupidest thing you ever thought! Would you really want to risk freedoms and the other many great experiences in life just to have a regular supply of someone (which, as age goes by, will undoubtedly fade from your desires and now you’re chained to someone no matter what you do, even divorce will leave a stain to your life)? Well, I can’t decide that for you, but that is something to think about. You will certainly learn things in an attraction relationship that are different that not being in one, but is that over-lived lesson experienced by generations really the best way for YOU? The shoe that fits one’s foot doesn’t necessarily fit someone else’s. Go out there and show love to EVERYONE, from the toddler’s mopey mom across the street to the big bearded guy who took the last Starburst in the convenience store. People are people. That guy who crashed on the side of the road isn’t just some guy you didn’t know, he was a guy capable of receiving your love and you receiving his through kindness, and you would’ve been bonded by that human center thing. A genuine human being. Giving off love to everyone brings more love to you and to them. You’d be shocked at how much kind words or actions can change the course of someone’s day- or life. You don’t know how deeply I’ve been affected by someone’s apology or selfless contributions to help me grow as a person, and to help them grow. We all grow together. It’s that spiritual energy kind of thing, and it could save the world at times despite all the hatred and ugly on earth, albeit those may always exist. But love for each other always wins! You don’t have to feel lonely, either. Just realize we’re all connected and that, despite people not visually being around, you can still feel their love if you ruminate on it just right, realizing that distance isn’t a…well…distance, and you’ll be glutted with positivity quickly! And that’s my rant ;D Love ya!

    “is not earthquake that kills people, but people themselves who keep building in the wrong places and don’t understand earthquakes…” geologist professor
    same is for love, is not love that hurts people, but people themselves who do not understand it! unfortunately education system fails to teach us about one of the greatest human emotion and value… we are still a primitive society
    but as a rule of thumb: never love one person more than you love yourself, when you learn to love yourself and feel comfortable in your on shoes… then you know what love is, a bless, a gift for the few.

    Romantic love, like any other material desire (wealth, fame, power, etc…) as per the eastern philosophies of Hinduism and Buddhism, causes desires, which causes attachment, which not only ends up causing pain and suffering, but brings you down both morally and spiritually in order to obtain and then keep those desire. Romantic love has to do with the attachment to the physical body, which is not our true self (our “true self” is our soul or spirit), since it ceases to exist upon death.

    For those who are spiritually inclined, DO NOT get involved in romantic love, including relationships…….it is another trap by the world to get you away from God and from salvation!

    Try being in love with your soul mate but not able to physically be together because you found each other way to late in life. Doing everything in your power to be with that person, but the world keeps falling down around you. So do you give up and move on or do you hold out for the best thing you have ever had??????????

    love doesnt hurt anybody nor anyone OK? love is a part of mankind when you feel love you have to face the reality that if you fall inlove you have to expect the un expected love its not just a happinnes or happy moments. sumtimes you can fell hurt or pain to make u strong enuf its doent mean you have to hate them b-coz they hurt you. if you want love and no more pain unto you you just have a forgiveness in your heart and your mind ok have faith and it will be done ask for guidance to god and he will ease that pain.. promise

    love is good and love is bad , it is filled with good awesome moments but in the other hand also is filled with jelous and depressing feelings, when you talk to that girl and she corresponds you feel like you are the king of the world but it seems ( i at least) we are all neurotic and always imagine the worst. and thatgenerates nights of insonia and emo music and reading these love blogs trying to feel better about it, and getting no result maybe now becoming more neurotic and imagining the worst case scnearios ever.

    I have not seen real proofs about a couple who has been together for more than 20 years and still LOVE each other. Therefore, I cannot assume love exists, or at least not in the way media put it.

    The media have created false ideals of what love should be: like this perfect thing that should be given to us with no effort and will last forever, with no effort. This has been enormously damaging to relationships.

    Love, like any other thing worth getting in life, is something you need to make an effort and a conscious process to improve yourself for sucessfully living it. It takes many tries to have a good result. It takes also conscious decisions, self-control and emotional matureness.

    If you are mature enough to recognize and respect your own emotions and the other’s, you are always going to get involved in complicated relationships and therefore get hurt. You cannot blame on anybody else if you keep choosing the same kind of person in spite of knowing what that decision brought you in the past.

    You also must overcome fears and anything else that is restraining you (prejudices, false expectations, unrealistic conceptions about what love and relationships should be) . That is the hardest process, since so many broken marriages and past traumatic experiences keep us from doing it.

    And even though, a healthy, long-term relationship is not guaranteed. There are many obstacles. Like the chemical ones: physical attraction only lasts some three years. What happens after that? I don’t know.

    My conclusion is that love, as the media and culture see it, is just an imaginary construction, that has no proof in real life.

She used to hang with me almost every night, now she won’t even sit next to me when were in the same room and there is always weird tension in the air. Now I’m totally alone, worse off than ever before. Thought she felt the same but she says she thinks I can do better. All I want is her, issues included. Can’t even think straight. Was happy alone before her, now I can’t bare it. #3-4 are painfully true….

He is married, but I’m so deeply deeply insanely madly obsessed with him that even this no longer matters. He will never want me. He will never even know how deeply he shakes me.

    Well spoken. There’s a lot more behind it all, like cowardice, lies, betrayal, etc but you gave a good comprehensive overview of the situation. Love in this day and age is defined, not by how you make someone else feel, as it should be, but by how someone else makes YOU feel. So as long as you keep up with the good feeling demands, its wonderful. Then again, reality eventually sets in, which it will, and things don’t always feel great, rather than realize that no one is perfect, and anything worth having isn’t always going to be easy and streamlined, you get dropped like a sack of bricks for the lack of someone elses self esteem. congrats.

    the reason why love sucks is because some devout people fall in love with abusive people and the worst story of love I ever read is when a girl falls in love with someone who raped her… this is very uneducating. Instead of telling people love is beautiful even for no reason blah blah blah why don’t we convince them that you must be realistic to love/hate someone.

    especially for you girls! submissive is your natural character trait and since kiss, hug, and sex give you much more emotional effect, you could get addicted to men who abusive you making you nothing but chained slaves. Especially since almost every culture and religion puts girls in disadvantages. Girls need to be more logical and rational!

    men can only be victims of love but girls can be victims of love and sexual assaults.

    …….Yea sure, we all kno love can hurt like a fucker continuesly stabbing u n shit. But life without love is meaningless, and those lives really friggin sukk… I think that love from family might be enough for someone, but there is always going to be a gap, a missing piece, an empty hole in which somebody else would have to fill in… Somebody who you can embrace, somebody who u can kiss, somebody who u could caress, somebody who will always be there, no matter wat… Sure, most of the time when you like someone, you always wonder like if they even like u at all… Some people like to mess around with u when ur in love with them, like use u n shit, for everything, and they pretend to like u bakk r even think that ur not good enough for them… And if u dont find out soon enough if the person is playin n toyin with u, ur heart, ur soul, ur mind, everything, will be crushed into pieces, and sometimes, those pieces can never be put back, because all u r now is just a pawn of theirs, lifeless… It really takes time to find the one u truly love… Hell, i even heard of 60 n 70 year olds finally getting married r just getting to know thier true lover, and that really sukkz, major time, cuz they had all this time to find the one thier whole life, and now, they dont have much long to live, cuz theyre old, ykno… N yes, i have gone through all this fake lovey dovey shit that in the end, left me with nothing but regret, anger, and sadness… Luckily, i was able to see that the relationship was just an illusion from the real thing… Well, even if the pain is so fukked up and it mixes up ur emotions, even feel suicidal, i would just have just have to dust myself off and keep looking for the one… Like i said, the search for some people maybe a long ass tuff road for them, taking years to pass, and a lot of hope n patience… But there are some lucky ass people who are brave enough and effortful enough to find thier true love in an instant… And the real gift n goal to being in love anyways is finding happiness, thatz all, and it makes u feel so good, like there isnt a care in the world… But then again, u have to be wise, cuz love can blind u so easily… That is why u would have to sometimes set things straight, like why does he/she love u? would they still love u, even if u lose a leg, r gain wieght, r come across somebody else? And the questions go the same for u, because u also have to love him/her the same way as they do to u… If shit aint workin, dont waste time, get ur ass outta there and move on… Like i sed, life without love, is life without the smiley face, and life without the smiley face, is like a bottomless hole with nothing but endless, meaningless, eternal darkness… Now, dont hate anyone u come across, even if thry are completo assholeitos, u should feel bad for em, cuz they still havnt found thier true love… If they had, they wouldnt be assholes cuz theyll b happy thier entire lives, cuz they kno, they have found em… Im not gonna finish this today cuz im tired as fudge… Dont be hatin on this if u find it irrelavent in anyway, cuz that just proves u meaningless… So far

    “Everyone says love hurts, but that’s not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts.

    Wow. This is too true.

    Has anyone mentioned how people say they would love someone “for eternity”? I think that when people say that, they don’t even comprehend the value of eternity. EVERYTHING is temporary. People are fickle, and they change before you know it, even quickly forgetting having said such a thing….and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    Also, people are replaceable, which I think is absurd because the person you love(d) won’t be found in anybody else. How do people do it? How do they hold back their feelings so well? Their faces never betray what they’re truly feeling. I wish I was capable of such a thing, but I don’t, as it’s the price I pay for having a conscience and various beliefs, even if my beliefs are “outdated” and “bankrupt”. How do people do it? The person you loved more than anything in the world dies, and they just tell you “Go on with your life,” to just “forget it” as if it was nothing at all. To them, it’s easy. I don’t know how it’s so easy for them.

    Is it truly possible that love and hate are fundamentally the same thing? The only difference between the two is action. Plus it seems like people have an easier time committing to hatred than to committing to love. But what both have in common is that they create misery. Admittedly, though, love is quite subtle in conceiving pain.

    These are just my opinions. I miss the one whom I love. I was told she passed away, but I’m still having trouble believing it….

    Even though all of what you say is true, and it really does hurt, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. Love is one of the most amazing things in the world and you cant cut love out of your life because it hurts. I’m in love with my best friend she is hands down the best thing that has ever happened to me. If you cut love out of your life cause it hurts then you are a coward.

Will some of us never find the right one? Some of us never recover from these bad experiences with people who broke our hearts?

    It’s OK guys. Love doesn’t not actually hurts. There was a friend of mine who broke up with a guy, she was devastated. She shared everything with me even though we weren’t very close. Slowly we started talking quite often and sharing all our secrets. We became best friends. But one day she got back with the same guy and that was when i realized I loved her but it was already too late. I was heart broken but still I’m OK because everything happens for a reason. We still talk and we still are best friends. Yeah it hurts seeing them together but this is life you know. There are many things you just can’t get, You have to move on.

    I’m in my first year of college. I’ve had a few relationships, but I’ve only ever truly been in love once. When I was in my last year of high, there was someone who made me feel like nobody else had ever made me feel before. She made me feel like my life was actually worth living. She was the most special thing in the world to me. I would do anything for her. But, we broke up, and now that I’ve left high school, I dont really see her anyone. We still text eachother occasionally. I went from being the happiest person in the world, to my regular, old, boring, depressed self. I still think about her everyday. I loved her so much and to be honest, I still do. I would do anything to be able to hold her in my arms again. I really dont want to have to say this but, I completely agree. Love does suck </3.

    The thing is even if 2 people love each other really much, 1 will love one more than the other, and the other won’t value it as much. It’s the balance of life, which is why there is never a perfect relationship. The best way to love is to not be addicted to the person and be in control of yourself, it’s extremely hard but not impossible. You can love the other person all you want but need to stay independent and not attached to them. Make your own interests a priority, and never let a partner get in between that, no matter how hard they try. If you can pull this off long term then you’ve got it made.

    Love does suck. And if you’re in highschool, don’t wait for the right one. Fuck as many of them hoes as you can. I had plenty of girlfriends but I waited for the right girl when I was 18. I finally found her but after 2 years of dating her, I found out she has slept with around 30 guys and slept around with her friends in college and highschool. I enjoyed my highschool days, but she will often talk about how she misses it and misses college…and it just gives me this empty feeling in my heart that I wouldn’t wish upon anyone.

    She loves me more than any of them she says and that she wants to be with me forever. But I remember one time when her friend asked her what the craziest sex she’d ever had was, and she said in a pool with some guy, they snuck into a hotel and did it in the pool at night. And then she just smiled and thought about it for like 10 seconds. That shit literally killed me. Whenever I look deep into her eyes I can’t help but feel I have wasted my teenage years to sleep around and now I’m jealous of my own girlfriend.
