    sometime you fall in love... only to be a fool and either people are talking and saying 'love is Blind' because they can see things are not right... but regardless.. the said person in love believe it is true love... example... falling in love with a wife beater/ a druggy, an alcoholic - a rough tough relationship....or maybe it can relate to you in another form.... ..

    I believe infatuation is blind. Most relationships start off with both people attracted to one another and doing everything possible not to "blow" their chance of exploring this chemistry they feel towards one another. The word "no" is seldom if ever heard in the (infatuation phase) of a relationship.
    When a person starts to "see" major flaws or things they dislike but decide to continue to stay in the relationship it's not because "love is blind". It's reflection of their inner self at that point. Maybe they don't think they deserve better or believe they could find better, they're tired of starting over in new relationships, or they stay because they want to prove everyone wrong who warned them. This is about having low self-esteem which prevents them from having "deal breakers".
    Generally speaking the phrase "love is blind" implies this person (doesn't see) any flaws, doesn't feel they're getting the short end of the stick, and refuses to listen to anyone who dares to attempt to point out any negatives. Love is blind is right up there with "ignorance is bliss". Very few people however are "blind" in any long-term relationship. Facing the facts means they'd have to make a tough decision. Therefore they (choose) to look the other way.
    There are only two ways to experience joy and peace of mind in relationships: we either get what we want or we learn to be happy with what we have.

    The way I look at the "Love is Blind" scenario is that sometimes when you're so in love with someone, or (infatuated like another hubber mentioned), you tend to look past some things that you normally wouldn't. For example, some couples tend to let their significant other abuse them mentall/physically/verbally because they "love" them. They believe that you must deal with these things in order to have true love. Our own sense of love can blind us to reality. Some people let their partner cheat on them because the cheater tells them they love them and they suck up to them after the act and do things that the cheat-ee may want/need so that they tend to overlook the cheating issue eventually. These are just a couple examples, I could go on all day. I put up with abuse for 15 years because I thought my ex would get better. I wanted my family to be together and dreaded getting a divorce so I looked the other way when he did certain things so as to keep my family together, when someone else, someone from the outside looking in, would've never put up with these things.
