What happens to love ???Page 1 of 1    
Ever wonder where love goes ???

I'm curious to know what others thoughts are on how two people who were in love can eventually end up at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Does it dissolve, degrade, dissipate, disintegrate, disappear ???

You ever get a plant that you forgot to water, or watered to much. Didn't fertilize it, or over fertilized it? Had it in the sun, when it was a shade plant?

Love takes work, and it will wilt and die if not properly nutured.. Love however is a two party project, thus it takes both sides wanting it, and wanting it from the other person.

Sometimes love never existed, but lust, or some started from a misplaced need just to be with someone. Which generally doesn't work, because there is an incompatibility issues.

Thanks for the replies.

This is just something I've found myself pondering about.

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings. (Anais Nin)

Brown eyed woman I love your post...

One thing a person can do, is to love them self, fully... That kind of love will always survive if a person accepts them self, and what purpose they have in this world.

Sadly there are a LOT of people who have no idea that the first person they need to love is them self, so that they can show others how to love them too.

Your wisdom:


<div class="quote">"Giving someone all of your love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Don't expect their love in return; wait a bit, it may grow in their heart; but if it doesn't, be content that it grew in yours"

Yes, and to love others even if they don't love you, IS to be a great gift one can give to ones self. That love too can give growth of ones own love.


VVVVVVVShug that is some really jaded talk about women... I agree the love between children and parent is immeasurable for MOST people. However their are enough sick and twisted people who have violated that kind of love.

Most women are NOT likely to run to the next best looking guy, unless she didn't love you in the first place...AND it also happens with men doing the same thing as well...
