      How do you live without love?

      Actually, it is not possible for any individual to live without love, simply because no one person "hates" everything in life and those who claim to hate everything are liars.

      Everyone has something they "love", either physical, emotional or for mental reasons, or even materialistic reasons. smile

        see - I thought the OP was about getting love from others!  Of course everyone loves something, even if they just love being miserable.

      I have been out of love for eight years before, then I manage, just work, children and studies and of course I gave myself time to relax once in awhile, although at times, I saw people walking with their husbands, boyfriend, then I also thought, why not, then I fall out of love again,
      I think that when you are not really forcing yourself to have romantic love, that's when you will find one, just love the best you can and wait, And it really comes when you least expected it and Love always finds you,
      Love is a miracle and it happens, it cant be forced either, it is not just like the be all, one can find happiness without a romantic love! There are lots of other things to find love with!

      Thanks for your post!

        Pretty, you still have love. You have your kids' love, your friends' love just not romantic love.

      I don't think anyone lives without love. I believe some people forget love is every place they are. First love is within yourself. The only way we can accept love from the people in our lives is to first  love ourselves unconditionally. When we love and accept ourselves we see and receive endless love from the simplest relationships.

      If you have a spiritual relationship with a being greater than yourself, then you again have endless love surrounding every facet of your life.

      Love allows us to feel in a different way. Its not about physical love. Its about the type of love that validates us as human beings. So without sounding too preachy, love is everywhere. Allow yourself to see and feel it. You will learn it is a true statement.

    what makes you think anyone here is living without love?  You are still going on about the lack of love in your life? even after so many tried to nicely warn you that the forum threads on HubPages aren't a very good source for professional advice about your sad life.  It's ok to vent now and then, but are you trying to make us all depressed, or what? 

    No, sincerely, I don't mean to hurt your feelings, but if you are looking for sympathy, you should know that a number of hubbers here have had spectacularly difficult lives with cancer, deaths, suicides of people close to them, pets dying unexpectedly, husbands cheating on them, their houses burning down, losing their homes to the bank because they can't make payments, daughters running away, mysterious illnesses that cannot be diagnosed, and very low hub scores for no good reason at all.  They still manage to entertain themselves and each other and actually laugh about life and love and stuff. 

    We can all sympathize, but we can't actually make you more attractive, a better writer, more loved, or happier!  So now you know.  And maybe it will help to go look for some love in the real world, because cyber love is not much of a substitute, unless you have an extremely wonderful imagination.

        Yes, and the sad thing is that there are cures for the low hub scores, and yet some hubbers just don't listen! neutral:

      Thankyou for your rude advice but no one asked you.  I sometimes if you say nothing it's better then being rude.  I love life and I am trying to help others.  Sometimes others need to get it out ...I guess like you it's a free world and we all can speak I minds ...If you don't like my Hubs please move on there are plenty!

        Hi etaunt, if you're in the forums expect rudeness, even remarks that have nothing to do with your topic.  What other hubbers are going through also doesn't mean that you can't put up your own topic. Remember not to take it so serious.

        Now about your question, I think people sort of exist without love but they're not healthy and happy.  I think you should be able to love yourself in order to give love and it will come back to you.

    Studies show that most humans do not live without love, and those that do become extremely violent.

    BTW, why is this in the Day Care and Babysitting forum?

    hmm, well, I think sometimes love is mistaken for attention or affection. everyone needs that.. simply by giving it to others. we build walls and block love from our lives when it is all around us. open yourself to receive love from the multitude of sources around you.

    if you refer to romantic love with a partner... hmm, I think even many with partners have no romantic love. we decide what we want and allow in our lives. love is much bigger when we love ourselves first. I think many do not love themselves..

      I think when you love yourself , it has a specific name for that...
      Sorry, could not help, it's my nature. I laugh at everything that sounds funny, including myself, because when you laugh you cannot cry.
      And I like what Mega1 said.
      Pass me your napkin, Greek One,please.

    I think we are all constantly surrounded by love, and when someone has the impression that he or she doesn't have love in their lives, it is because they have their focus all set to receiving love instead of feeling it themselves. But since we always live what we are a match to, a person feeling unloved is just not a match to being loved.

    Once we learn to love and pamper ourselves and to recognize that we are the only partner for ourselves which we will certainly have to deal with until we die, we can freely give love and not feel deprived while we do it. And this is when love suddenly is a match to us, and voilá, that's when it happens...

    Without love life is nothing, so one should try his/her best to get real lover. Once you get you own partner you get half of your life 50%. You will get the other half easily. when one needs to take decision, his/her partner will give best advice. If you half that 50% please keep and never let it fall apart. Thanks God, he gave my real love and happiness.
