Either way love hasn't found me or I haven't found love.

Hellll no. If I just sat in my house all day nothing would come of it. As much as I've told myself over the years that love should come naturally, I've learned that I have to make a move. Love clearly requires intervention.Anything else is coincident

Love isn't a noun it's an action. Love is a choice.

Both. Sometimes you find it, sometimes it finds you. Sometimes you attract love, sometimes love attracts you.

Love is a seed. You may plant it or it may accidentally fall into your garden but it will not grow or bare fruit unless you care for it.

It is both (check your local dictionary). But the verb creates the noun.

Haha thank you, but I meant it more in a colloquial sense. Love is something you do, not something you have/find/become overtaken by.

I that sense you are absolutely correct. Love isn't something you just stumble upon.

I disagree. I was actively searching for love for almost a decade before I found it in my wife who I met on Tinder.

Love is not a thing but an action. You create love.

It doesn't find anyone it's just what two people feel. Honestly, i'm happily single forever. That kind of love sucks anyway!

If you sit inside playing Skyrim every day, pretty sure you're not finding love.

Love with my boyfriend found me! I had no intention of falling in love as hard as I did. Now I'm hooked and convinced I have found the one!!

Isn't it a bit of both? If you don't find love then love won't find you.

I'm not saying you find love but if you're not looking it won't find you.
Love is a choice. If you don't choose to love then you will live a loveless life.

I mean you can choose to start to like and admire something but when it really hits you, is when it comes out of the blue and bites you in the but

How can anyone even know what that means, or what she intends for it to mean, or what the import of such a statement is? It's one of those vague and ambiguous statements similar to those that politicians make.

Disagree. It's something you make happen and work at constantly. Lust or adoration might find you, but love is effort.

We don't choose whom we fall in love with. We as a species have harnessed and tamed plants, animals, and even the atom itself, but we still are unable to tame love.

If love is suppose to find you and that is applicable to everybody, how does one ever find it if there is not one seeking it?

I think I mostly agree, but I do think you can find love too - by not looking for it.

I've agreed with that statement for a long time now, but a lot of people have a problem with the idea that you consciously choose to love someone.

07/30/15 12:36 pm

If that were true, people wouldn't divorce.

07/30/15 12:39 pm

Just because you ultimately choose doesn't mean that different circumstances change your willingness to give someone the ability to hurt you. You choose based on the factors that surround you in life at any given time.

I haven't been married but I'm pretty sure people divorce because the love has died.

Love dies when people stop putting in the effort to keep it alive.

People also divorce because the love was never really there. They have certain expectations of who they want their partner to be instead of accepting who they already are.

hbpole FoCo
07/30/15 3:42 pm

I don't deny that at all, I think the problem in bringing up marriage is that it simply doesn't equate to love. They're neither synonymous nor mutually exclusive.

iMatter2 I Used to Love H.E.R.
07/30/15 3:53 pm

True, and the concept of marriage greatly varies depending on the culture.

Handstand .
07/30/15 4:27 pm

Wait a minute, people get married because they fall in love. If love is "a choice" a normal person would choose to stay in love and not disrupt the family with divorce.
That's why I call bs on love being "a choice".

corino Utah
07/30/15 5:20 pm

Not necessarily, there are defiantly reasons a person would choose to divorce (good and bad) someone they love.
