    Is it true that love is blind?

      Not exactly. However when one is "infatuated" with another they're likely to tune out "red flags" or any other thing (they don't want) to hear or see that would keep them from pursuing the object of the affection.

      One old adage goes: "Always follow your heart"

      However I always tell people the following:
      "Never separate your mind from your heart when making relationship decisions. The purpose of the mind is to protect the heart."

      You have to do some serious introspective thinking to figure out who you are, what you want and need in a mate before you pursue relationships. Anyone who does not do this is likely to allow "impulsive connections" and "happenstance" to dictate their relationship choices.

      That's the equivalent of going shopping without a list!

      It's important to have a "mate selection process" where you have various milestones in place to check off as you get to know someone before making a final decision to invest your time and emotions into them.
      Dating with (awareness) of what you want can save you heartache.

      One man's opinion!smile

    Love can be blind.
    You have to wait to see the other clearly.
    Like five years.
