NO! The word "love" is way over used!

Faith in love?
Posted: 9/16/2008 9:20:59 PM
I have the same outlook as you do but the opposite sex. I do not have much faith in women theses days, it seems dishonesty is a game for most of them and games are played too often. I do not believe in love, I think it has to be earned with time and patience on both sides. Life is full of surprises but have not seen any.

Love doesnt conquer everything and to expect it to at best sentences you to a life of codependency. But, when you have conquered what life has to throw at you then love comes along. Date, but dont settle, for sometimes it takes a decade or more to find that real, perfect, someone who was made for you. The reason you meet so many unhappy couples is most everyone settles.

"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep on watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it."

I feel the same way sometimes. I have met men since I have been dating again and I just don't feel the same way I did years ago with them. I don't really trust any of them anymore. I do really try to but My heart just keps telling me not to let them in. It seems i always find out sooner or later that it was actually right. I have net some many people who just wanna lie to you and hurt you these days. Sometimes it feels like it one big headgame for them. and I feel like I am too old to play these games anymore and i just don't have it in me to let them hurt me.
But the=n I try to keep the faith and still believe that their os one good honest true person out there for me. and there is for you too we just have to keep telling opurselves that and keep going. I mean i don't let my guard down very often for anyone and i just hope when that certain someone comes along that i will open it up enough for it to work. but it really is hard and I know exactally how you feel sometimes. i hope things get better and that you do find the right one for you and that you let him in your heart when you find him. I wish you the best of luck

Yes, I still like to believe in love even though I've already experienced the loss of love twice in my lifetime. This experience has taught me alot about myself, the things that I do want or don't want in a relationship. Hopefully, I could make some wise decision the next time I land one.

At the moment, I rather focus on making myself happy and concentrate on improving things in my life, just being happy as a single person and do things that I've always wanted to do and make friends along the way.

I hope you will find the happiness you've been seeking all your life.

I understand now that you need to make yourself happy first before you can even love someone. A relationship will not make you complete as a whole.

PrettyPS.........

I'm sorry that you feel that way. I've been hurt as well......wife left me after 22 years of marrage for a younger man. I could have put love on the shelf, but I didn't. True love is a gift. It doesn't happen every day, but when it comes along its well worth the wait.

I think to give up on love is to give up on life. Of course to love another, you must love yourself first.

Yes to love is to make yourself very open to a broken heart, but that's a chance we all take in life. No one said it was going to be easy..........

Some one said: its better to have loved and lost then to never to have loved at all............."

Not really. I am learning the older I get it is not easy to love someone, you have to be a walking talking Magic Eraser. Strong enough to wipe out any past hurts from their heart, willing to take all the BS from their past events and apologize profusely for the rest of your life for what someone else did to them.

I do believe that love does exist in this world to a few individuals but in my case no such thing exist in hope for me to obtain such thing just because i have this feeling that i will not be able to find it.

I still have faith in love...sometimes. I lose faith from time to time because of the men I attract. They have no concept of the word or what it means. They only seem to think that it is something you should say and not something you're supposed to feel and mean. I keep hoping for the day that it finds me.
