    Unfortunately, we cannot tell our hearts who to love. Even though our brains are screaming no, the heart seems to always win this argument.

    It is not foolish for men and women to love each other. Unfortunately in modern society, the trust and integrity that used to underpin the relationship between men and women has seriously deteriorated. It is up to us good men and women to restore that symbiotic relationship back to it's rightful place in society. Personally I will take a woman of character over a woman of physical beauty any day of the week.

    Most people fall in love but "fools" tend to fall in love with the (wrong) person.
    Being a "fool for love" usually means a person strictly (follows their heart) without  doing a lot of thinking or asking questions for clarification. They choose to ignore "red flags". This gives meaning to the old saying: "Love is blind."
    "Never separate your mind from your heart when making relationship decisions. The purpose of the mind is to protect the heart."
    One man's opinion! :-)

    Everyone falls in love. Most of us are foolish about it some of the time.

    Best, I think, to accept our loves, enjoy our foolishness, and grow in wisdom.

    Because when cupid struck the beating thing. Fools from within automatically takes control of our body then love influence and kill our intelligence. hehe in short when were in love we mostly can't say what is right and what is wrong since love is a very powerful emotion that a man can feel

    If you don't try you will never know if it's real or not.  Take a leap of faith.  What do you have to lose?

    Fools, and masters of wisdom, fall in love because love is NOT a losing game . . . attraction can be a losing game, romance can even be a losing game, and lust can hardly avoid being a losing game - but love, true love, bonds us together and makes one out of two. After nearly 45 years, 6 kids, and 13 grandkids, when my sweetheart and I went to bed 2 nights ago, we had a raucous leg-wrestling match just like we used to when we were in our 20s . . . the bed was a mess, the sheets were on the floor, and we were both exhausted - and in each others arms. When love is genuine, familiarity makes the heart grow fonder.

    It is the fools who fall in love that make good partners in marriage. If a couple can be open minded and loving .Make fun of each other without tears. This is the recipe for success in a marriage, keep it fresh, keep it light, keep it foolish. You will love , long time!!

      Yes, the fun and foolishness in a relationship keep it fresh and ongoing- if it is real and not built on shifting sands that wash it away.

    Because fools are fools and love is blind more often than not, people fall in love. Many people do not really think about any negative signs in their loves until they have been embarrassed or wronged somehow.

    Because you are happiest when you don't think of the consequences like when we were children, it makes you feel alive and knowing somebody else is feeling the same way about you makes you feel like you have a purpose in life, this produces chemicals in the brain that tickle your soul and all of your instincts to reproduce our main purpose as a living being, so really it's what life is all about and why you, I and everybody is here

    There are no requirements for wisdom or smarts when it comes to love.  Love is an emotion, not a plan. It's based on the feeling of love, doesn't originate or grow out of some reasoning of the brain.  When one feels it, one feels it. It's an emotional, bodily response to another person.  What one chooses to do with it, once it is there, might be governed by better judgment, but not necessarily. It is a strong impetus, capable of making fools of us all.

    Even wise people can fall in love foolishly, without thinking through obvious impossibilities in the relationship which are nearly bound to sabotage it, especially if it's followed-through and is all wrong at the base.  But love is not a discerning capability.  It is a caring one and can as easily be a response to a person who is 'wrong' for one, as to a person who is perfectly appropriate and well-matched.  Timing is a factor, too.  Someone who would fit and match perfectly is still a wrong choice if he/she has moved on in life and has other major commitments.

    All the social setups humans have ever devised to try to make sure their people are exposed ONLY to appropriate mates have fallen short over history and probably will continue to.  The heart sees beyond those controls and recognizes a kindred heart.

    I think that being able to feel love is a privilege and has value of its own, whether or not it is or can be honoraby consummated.  The experience of genuinely feeling love for another human being expands one's heart, soul & ability-to-respond (responsibility) as a human being oneself.  A bond of love transcends its restrictions.

    society tells us too. fools fall in love because they dont know what love is. The way its shown on tv and in movies, does NOT reflect real life, we are all shownthis grand illusion, without all the real struggles. Fools fall in love because they dont know that it is not love. In short, fools don't fall in love...they have flings with passion.

    No one is fool, but when you love someone who don't loves you and you hope one day he/she will come or realize how much I love him. This is a signs of that you are making yourself fool.

    We're all percieved as fools from time to time. That " love thing" can be tricky, and does not discriminate as to age or experience. Taking it slow in the begining as well as knowing who you are,, is key to not falling into the fool catigory when it comes to love. Long term? That can be a different story as partners change and go off in different dirrections. While fools do love, loving is not foolish.

    Because we have been conditioned to do so by The Powers That Be to feel that it is necessary to achieve this basic human emotion. When we learn to love everyone unconditionally there will not be this stigma to fall in and out of 'love'.

    It is one of the most basic forms of mind control that encourages us to achieve something that we already do naturally. Sadly many people feel they are not complete unless they achieve this feeling and sustain it.

    Because they are fools...  True Love is something that grows over time, not attained by some silly whim in a capricious fashion like most people "think" they "feel."

    We can not tell others who to fall in love with. Sometimes we can't even control who we fall in love with, but I have found the true meaning of what love is. I have written a hub on love. You might find it interesting.

    I agree with Nellieanna, it is the most powerful force that triggers a person's actions towards another. It is more powerful than a person's craving for a favorite food or toy because when you're hit with this feeling all your bodily functions suffers or is affected terribly. You cannot sleep, eat or even think properly because you are attracted only to one thing and nothing else. There are lots of poems, movies, stories and songs that tell how powerful this "love" thing is and there is no way anyone can stop, not even death. There still a promise of it even in afterlife.

    Love is blind. Even intelligent people fall in love. So in my opinion love makes every one fool but still we love to do foolish things in love. Because without love life is meaningless.
