    Love starts with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with tears.-Is this true? What do you think?

      Love never ends.  The face of love may change, but love itself never does.

        Love ends with hatred, but doesn't have to develop in that direction.

          umm, ok, I think you are right.

          couturepopcafeposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          No.  Love never ends.  This is the nature of love.  If one feels hatred, they have never in fact loved the object of that hatred.

            There are some who believe love and hate are the same thing - essentially, passion.

            I say they are not the same but are both rooted in passion, and love can develop into hate if nurtured properly for it but doesn't have to.....

        so in your opinion, tears are nothing but a form of love only?

        1. couturepopcafe profile image60
          couturepopcafeposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          We can be brought to tears for many reasons, most of which have to do with loss and pain, both physical and emotional.  Even tears of joy stem from a deep seated sense of something we thought perhaps would never come to us.  Lost love brings tears but the tears are from loss, not from love dying.  Love does not end.  This does not mean that the object of our love will not leave us, die, or otherwise be unreceptive in some way.

      Love is my middle name! LOL! I agree with it except the ends in tears only applies when love ends which doesn't always happen.

        I agree that love does not always end, but we have to leave our dear person in the future, there is no escaping it.

        Well, I am not sure about that, I mean, love has got to get broken once and then sometimes it  gets repaired.

    Well in the US it ends in a divorce 6 times out of 10.

      haha, yeah, this is very bad, I mean why marry if you are going to break it.

    2. couturepopcafe profile image60
      couturepopcafeposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      flightkeeper - this is very funny.  Most are confusing love with relationship.  Relationships might end.  Love never does.

      1. Flightkeeper profile image72
        Flightkeeperposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Well that could be true, some of those marriages probably were for reasons other than love -- money, loneliness, insecurity, etc.  But I think that when most couples get married they are in love and they want it to last.  Divorce is devastating and it's a failure for most people but unfortunately those are the statistics.  Something happened in the course of marriage where a couple once loved each other but couldn't work out the relationship.  Whether it still ends up as love is anyone's guess.

        1. couturepopcafe profile image60
          couturepopcafeposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Yes, true.  Sometimes people are so hurt they say things forgetting that they actually love the other person.  It takes dedicated effort to stay kind even in anger.

    yes,  only relationships end, love continues..
    I wrote a poem about it once, where does love go when you let it go. one of those ethereal type questions..

      You know what they say, it's the only thing you can keep giving away and still have plenty left to give.

        yes, I think you are right. I don't think love in itself changes, only people and circumstances.

    well, if it ends it can end with tears - can also end with a slap in the face smile

    Love makes us lovely, emotional and fulfill our all the wishes and gives us a cute smile on our face, without love we can't feel happy at any movement.

    Nothing ever truly lasts permanently. We only get so long on this earth to savour and appreciate life and friends, partners and loving them. So get busy loving or get busy counting how half empty the glass is. Life is too short, and no point in worrying over it and talking down the bench. Christmas and winter blues not withstanding, 2011 will be better than 2010. Cheer up. It will happen for you. Just believe.

    When you love somebody, and they keep making you cry,the love you have for them slowly diminishes,until you start wondering how come you actually fell in love with them in the first place:(

    1. couturepopcafe profile image60
      couturepopcafeposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Halima - we cry because we let them make us cry.  Expectation was different than what was received.  We did not teach someone how to treat us so when they fell short, in this case hurtful, we no longer see what we saw in them.  Sometimes what we thought was love was not love at all.  I still say if it were love, it would not end.  We would not like the person for what they have done, but we would find the love.

  10. Halima Fowosire profile image57
    Halima Fowosireposted 7 years ago

    Okay,but does that mean you could be in love with more than one person at a time? And could you love someone for no particular reason,like if they ask you,'why do you love that girl?',and you say,'I don't know,I just love her...'..??

    1. couturepopcafe profile image60
      couturepopcafeposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Absolutely on all counts.  We are capable of loving many people in different ways and for different reasons and all at the same time.  Love is something we find within ourselves, not in the other person so we need no reason to explain this.  It just is.  Do not think of love as only romantic love.  It is much deeper than that.  The face of love may change from romantic to companion or whatever, but it is still love.
