    Is it possible to love someone too much?

    I don't mean obsession.  I mean love so much that it exceeds love.

    No I don't think it's possible to love someone too much.
    It's almost like saying is it possible to be too happy.

    Having said that there are various types of love.
    A parent may be willing to give their life in order to save their child. Would one consider that loving too much?
    A man may sacrafice his life to protect his wife and family from an intruder....Would you say he loved them too much?

    Now when it comes to dating: A person may wonder if they are "loving someone too much" if they realize they are not getting back the same type of love. I do believe it is possible to love and adore someone more than they love and adore you. Staying in that type of relationship begs the question "Why don't you love (yourself )enough to find someone who is willing to put as much into the relationship as you are?" It's unhealthy to be in a relationship where one person does most of the giving and the other does most of the taking.

    Allowing yourself to be used is not proof that you love someone too much. It's proof that you don't love YOURSELF enough!

    There is nothing like too much love. No scale exists for quantities of love

    If it exceeds love it is definitely obsession and obsession could not be love my dear.

    Sometimes I wonder the same thing....  My answer is no, Love can not be too, if we are talking about true love.
    If seems too much you can give it to those who need it: the world is full of people who are alone and in difficulty.

    I don't think so, but you can love too little.

    Yep, especially if you know they dont love you.  I think exceeding "love"  would be obsession

    I feel compelled to comment just so that I can openly agree with dashingscorpio. My 'vote up' doesn't do it.

    I agree with their statement sometimes people are too afraid to be alone that's why their stupidity they called it true love.

    If you define love as a feeling then loving too much can be detrimental because feeling is only satisfied by a mutual return. If love is defined as what you do to promote and sustain the good of another, then it is not possible to love to much. "No greater love has any man than this, that one should lay down his life for a friend." Feeling is in want of self gratification. Love is want of giving, not for return, but because it does not exist until it is freely given.

    off course it's possible but in this century people has not take birth to love in depth...just because of numbers of people around you that makes you free of tension

    Anything that exceeds love is what I call 'over-possessiveness and jealousy' within the context of emotional relationships. You say you don't mean obsession but loving someone too much is exactly that. It is the kind of love which consumes you.. and is often not reciprocated by the 'other'. And yes there is a scale in love, as in ALL emotions and its what we term 'emotional balance'. And from this we can utilise it as a point of emotional reference.
    So, yes, it is possible to love someone too much, as it is also possible to 'love' someone not enough..
