Do you think love is blind???

I'm a plus size mommy and every day I am amazed my SO really loves me. Very low self-esteem on my part. I know love is not all about looks but in my case I wonder if love really isn't blind. (You know on the other hand I think he is one handsome man butI don't think other people see it that way.)

  • No, love is not blind, it just likes what it sees.

  • What are you saying? THat your not lovable? How could that be possible? I am sure you have wonderful things that the person who loves you sees and finds value in.

  • I do believe that love can be blind.  I judge only myself on my physical appearance.  I do not judge others that way.  What's on the inside truly is what matters most to me.  My SO is getting heavier and heavier, as well as older, but when I see him being a great dad or being sweet and loving, he is the hottest man on the planet to me.  I do not care what he looks like or how fat he is, lol.

  • I think it is a chemical reaction. People are attracted to others not just on the looks-there's some really hot men out there, but I'm not in love with them. I think eventually it will be discovered love is something that needs to start with two people who "fit" each other chemically. Then love grows out of shared experience, etc.

    We've all heard of pheromones being essential to sexual attraction. Maybe everyone carries their own individual "thumbprint" of pheromone that is recognizable to another person's compatible one.

    I guess I think love is blind for this reason, and also I believe in "love" at first sight. (i.e. intense attraction)

  • love is not blind, it just knows that your size does not reflect your true self. he loves you for you, and that includes accepting how you look, and embracing that as well. and my hubby say 'no skinny chicks' lol.

  • Love is not blind. What it is it is not predjuiced and it knows no boundaries. Love isn't based on looks, love is based on a connection of souls.
