Do you think that love can be shallow?

My mother always talked about her mother and the fact that her love was shallow. I always thought that you either love someone or you don't. Also, you can love each person differently. What do you think?

  • sounds like her mother did not know how to express her emotions in a way that a child craves, that she put up barries to intimacy and would not let herself be vulnerable. her mother probably suffered at least as much as your mother did.

  • My d ex h said he was never taught to love a woman, woo her so he was very shallow in deed. I tried to teach him to be more open with me, that it was safe to be himself and to learn how to love someone. It did not work obviously, I still love that man, but I know he will never love me on any type of level I had hoped for. After meeting his parents, I understood why he was like this. the husband and wife stay in their own little rooms and the only contact they have is when the cook rings a bell announcing that dinner is ready. Other then pass the salt, that is the most I have ever heard out of them.

  • I think it's possible to love people in different ways.... I think people that never learned to love can have shallow love.... it's because they don't even love themselves so they are selfish

  • I don't think honest/true love is shallow. But infatuation can be.

  • Love is shallow when it is dependant on certain things, such as I only love you if you are a size 2, or you make xxx amount of money. That is shallow.
