Love means many different things to different people; the best you ever had, or simply the worst. If there was a drug that cures love, would you take it, and why?
Love is a very beautiful and attractive phenomenon. It brings the best in someone or the two people in love but there is a catch. Love tastes and feels sore when things aren't going well especially when there is no atom of trust. So, I'm definitely going to consider take the love cure pills should I find myself in such situations with love.
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
That's a rather interesting way to play it out. Enjoy it when it's warm, and bail before you get burned.
But what if you only had the chance to take it when you are not in yet love? As a preventive measure of sorts.
Preventive . . .
I think that it would cause you more pain for you because if you can't love it's better off if you weren't alive anymore. Most people get up each day and get things done because there's something pushing them forward. It's either love for something or someone. Get that out of the picture and people would have no desire to do anything anymore.
IMO even if love hurts, we can't do without it. Even when we lose our loved ones, we'll still find something or someone else to love. So no matter what I'd never take a cure for love even if one existed.
WOW! I absolutely agree with you, and that's what I am doing, just enjoy every second that you are with your loved ones so you won't regret when you don't have time anymore.
I agree with you. It's very weird to stop yourself from feeling a natural thing. It is like messing with God's plans. Let yourself feel love and pain. Pain will always be accompanied by love and so as with love to pain.
Well, in that case, I agree to take some pills to cure love, because love makes people go crazy, I know someone who had been in that situation.
I understand you, sometimes if we are hurt we just want to forget.
I don't think I would take a drug to cure love. After all, we're human, and part of what being human involves is being able to feel emotions - good and bad. Sure, love can have some things that are tough to deal with - like heartbreak - but if you don't open yourself up to the potential lows, you're never going to experience the amazing highs.
I agree with you. Love is a natural thing. Without love, I don't even know if there is a balance with how people treat each other. We should just keep it as it is.
I admire your courage to take your punches with your wins. It's just hard to do that sometimes when you are in a prolonged knockout state.
@Franzel2oo I understand and I’ve totally been there before. I had my fair share of heartaches that felt like tsunami waves crashing over me again and again. I guess though that for me, all the pain made meeting my husband so much more special and different. Love can come when you least expect it, as cheesy and cliche as that sounds. It’s worth holding out for.
Very well said and I agree with you. It may be painful to experience a heartache but this is something that will make you strong. We need to face the reality that love can give us a happy feeling but can hurt us at the same time. What important is that we have the courage to face this and be surrounded by your loved ones like family and friends who can give you endless love.
Yes, and sometimes of we force something to forget we tend to feel empty inside.
No, I wouldn't take it. Love is an innate ability that God has given to us, and it's better to experience the happiness and pain that it brings naturally. Everything about love is what makes very person mold as a strong person. Love comes in different ways. Love may not only be romantic, it is everywhere. You will find love from your family, friends, classmates, teachers, or anyone. Without love, a person would grow up without values. Even though love may really cause us sadness, I will still welcome it, because we will never appreciate happiness if sadness doesn't exist.
I agree, even though sometimes we want to instantly forget the person and the pain, it is still not right.
Beautiful comment. I loved the way you wrote this. Yes, the world will not be the same place without sadness. There should be equal place for all the emotions on this planet and only then life would be balanced.
I'd rather not. Love is both wonderful and painful at the same time. It brings flavor in our lives. I'd rather experience love and the pain together than nothing at all. Experiencing a heartbreak is an opportunity for growth.
I agree with you, pain is better than nothing and if you don't get hurt, then you didn't truly love.
Indeed. It is part of being in love. It also means that you truly love that person for you be that heartbroken. Also we learn from our mistakes and heartaches and that's what makes us wiser and stringer when we love the second or third time around.
I think I would really take love if it give us a lot of benefits since love for me is a very unique and important ways of expressing how important a certain individual for us. Sometimes love affects our way of living and our mood as well, we tend to be happy if we experience true love but we end up being angry or hating the world whenever we experience break up and being broken hearted.
yes, and love feels really great even if it brings pain to us
I think it is better not to cure it at all. Love is great and can be painful. But we need to experience the pain since it will help us to become stronger. Having the pain will make you realize a lot of things. I believe that you can still overcome the pain without taking any drugs or medicine to cure love. And one day, you will just smile and laugh at the heartache you have been through.
Heartache can also help you grow. Some love that turns into heartache makes you stronger and more aware from what you want in another romantic relationship. All our experiences in life are things that we can learn from - both the good and the bad.
I would rather sell love rather that sell an antidote for it. I think you are just confused about the context of love. I guess what you are really saying is that is there are cure for broken heartedness. Well there is. Broken heartedness or simply what I call a depression. This type of depression is just temporary and there are many methods in overcoming this stages in our lives. So hang on there and if you really needed some cure just message me I might sell you something that could help.
If it is available I would keep one handy in my bag. There might be an instance that I will need it. Love makes you do crazy things. And it would be wise to be able to prevent myself from such madness by taking a pill.
I think love can definitely make people do crazy things, but I often wonder if someone was in the thick of love then they would be too oblivious to know to take the antidote!
It's part of why they say love is blind, I guess!
Good point. That is a disadvantage of the medicine as a pill. It will be better if the medicine can be made to work like a patch on the skin which has a sensor or the ability to detect the start of the madness such as the increase of certain hormones.
If there was a drug for love aside from God, I wouldn't take it. Just as the Bible says, "Beloved let us love another, for love is of God and everyone that loveth is born of God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God for God is love." 1 John 4:7-8. God is the only cure for love.
I agree with you, there is no need for pills becauseGod is there.
Being a single person now, I have lost the touch of love. I don't remember how the love works. And how people connect with each other. You can see that in such case I already have the cure. The cure is keeping away from people and moving on to something different. That way love never comes to you. And you can't chase it either.
I was hoping I'd read from one who feels bitter about love. We kind of rock the same boat right now. Difference is, I think I'll pass on the cure. Well some times at least. Other times, I think I could OD on it. Talk about good and bad days.
I don't feel bitter. It's like I don't have it. I have nothing to express. Think of it like you don't own Iphone. You know how it worked before. You know you have handled it. And now you don't have it. That's the type of feeling I have about it.
Not that I believe in love all that much but, I don't think human beings need a serum of formula to overcome any emotion. It's all about relying on the strength of the will and mind to do that.
I also think that those emotions are what make us human. Love, anger, frustration, empathy, sadness, joy...they are all part of the human condition. Take any of those feelings away or try to suppress them and I think it almost makes us all less real. We're not robots nor should we desire to be.
I think time is the biggest cure. As long as we have some reason to live and work ahead. I think that definitely helps out with the cure for any emotion. With time we just learn to live with our life and move ahead as we need.
I'd rather not. As for me love is no sickness that I would need a cure for. Rather it is a beautiful feeling that God has given for us to experience. It is true that us humans could fall in love for the wrong person or the wrong things. But instead for asking for a cure, I would much rather train myself to get over my feelings and discipline myself not fall to same mistakes again. That way I could improve myself. Besides, I am pretty sure that if love has a cure, it would pretty much have side effects.
I agree. It is not a disease that a cure could be taken in order to get rid of it. It is a wonderful gift from God. I like that idea of yours about love. I hope everyone would think the same way as you did about love.
I won't take it, because that love will be a memory, and I won't erase it in my mind if we two broke up with each other than I guess it's okay, maybe we are not meant for each other.
I agree with you, no matter how hard and painful it is J won't erase it because in some time that love gave me happiness.
Yes and kind of no. It's better to feel the best and the worst of love. Sometimes if it really hurts you, you would really think that it's better to have a cure in it as its very painful especially if you really loved that person but pain make us become stronger than we thought were not. It maybe painful but those painful memories serves as your inspiration to build yourself up. Love can be cure if you put God first before all. Love takes a while before it heals you so the next time you find love, it should be yourself first. How will you love someone or somebody if you don't love yourself?. Better yet to love yourself as you love God before anyone.
You know, I've also had times I thought I was in love and had my heart broken, and now I look back at them and think it really wasn't love. Love is when you want the best for someone. I don't think it's when you hurt someone or make them feel bad.
I don't think I would take a cure to love if ever there would be. I love the idea of love and I believe that all people has the right to fall inlove. Falling inlove is something that a person should endure, through sadness and happiness. No matter how hard it would be, you will never give up as long as you truly love someone and that sums up alot.
I agree. I think that one of the main reasons why marriages do not last is because almost everyone seeks the easy way out. When something is wrong, something not going in their way or something is just not fun anymore, they give up. It is also the reason why they do not realize the true meaning of marriage. Since they think they have the choice to back out when things gets rough (meaning they could choose to annul or divorce AND remarry), they sometimes jump into marriage too early when feelings are high. But the minute life gets hard, they jump out. Love should be realized and endured. It must be given effort. If they could do this they would realize that even if they lose the one they love, they have truly loved. And if they luckily end up together, then they will fulfill what marriage is really about.
I have learned that love is not just about the feeling of having fun and butterflies in the stomach but also a feeling to fight for the person you love. I agree that some marriages fail because they have this mindset that they could always get away from it without thinking that what they promised together should be done for a lifetime. I hope everyone could get to know the real idea of love.
I really liked what you said about love not being all fun and butterflies - I feel like now that I've been with my husband several years we're past the butterflies stage but in a more deep kind of love. I know I have his support through any life challenges, and that's the kind of love you'd never want to disappear.
You are very lucky to have found your partner. Not many find theirs in this age. It was like love are just found on pages of Wattpad, or movie scenes, with feelings lasting for two hours only. I wish I could find mine soon.
It's good that you have such a wonderful and true relationship with your husband. I'm hoping that me and my boyfriend could also reach that stage of love, just like yours. Now, even after 2 years of being together, I can say that we are still in the stage of knowing each other deeply. What I can be sure of is that, I will never leave him no matter how hard the situation may get.
I agree with you, life would be boring without love, your life would be incomplete without it. So no matter how hard and how painful love can be, I will still be willing to take risk.
That is definitely right. Life without love is not love anymore. Love begins in life. I cant imagine the world without it.
Personally, I wouldn't take that pill because I do believe that Love of any kind is a great gift and should be cherished. Actually, for me, bad experiences during relationships either with family, friends, partners/the opposite and same sex shouldn't be the reason for anyone to not love because those experiences are definitely experiences that will mold us to become what we are as a person in the near future. I mean, it's not easy to become a strong person without experiences of hurting and pain, and so I don't think there's a reason for me to cure/eliminate my love for anyone/anybody because for me, to love is without condition and to love is to genuinely love without cancelling as if it was a contract. And for the record, Love isn't a disease so why cure it.
I agree with you, and love might come with pain, but you can never truly love a person without experiencing pain from them.
Right. Loving is giving the other person the possibility to hurt you. I am not saying that if you love that means that you want to get hurt. What I mean is love is a package deal of dreams and hurt. You can't expect to love and not get hurt.
True. It's actually the same with us, we won't become strong individuals if we don't experience painful moments like having wounds, break-ups, unwanted fights and etc. Love is mostly defined by others as a feeling of happiness but they always forget about the process of getting that happiness. Love is not just about temporary happiness but an eternal one, and to have that is to survive the test of time.
no matter how painful love can be, it is still love and I will not, not even once will want to a cure from it.
I agree with you, the feeling of love is very special.
I will definitely take it. Love can cure many things and if this is the only way for me to cure then I wont mind at all. I will not hesitate to grab and take it immediately.
I think it's reasonable excuse in case if you consider on how the love can be fix to many things. In reality it can be said that love just makes one feel that you have reached the place. I have not seen that happen to me. But maybe other people have experienced that. It may work for them in that case.
I believe that for some people they have experienced it and I hope you will do the same. Love is a universal feeling that everyone should feel it.
Indeed it seems universal. And we only first experience with the mother first then we search for other souls forever. I think it's kind of hard when we are consciously searching for it. But that happens just like that when you are not searching for it.
No I might not take it. You can simply recover from with it. However you could control jaw fast will you get over it. Remove your old messages, your pictures with the loved ones and so forth. The less interaction you will have with the individual you fell inlove with, the quicker you may get better and in time.
No, I wouldn't take it. The losses and breakups in love are always painful, there is no escape that allows a shortcut to the inevitable process. Nevertheless, these experiences build character in each one of us, teaching about life and human behaviors. To cit that part of the learning process would only result in more pain in the future, with all the new relationships that would inevitably fail. Mistakes are the primary base of knowledge.
Love is the very best thing God gave us to feel and share to everyone. Love is more on giving because you are happy by doing it and making other people happy. I rather not take the drug. As long you don't expect anything in return, everything will be just fine. No need for a drug. Love already is the cure of everything.
I agree with yiu, love is love if there is no love we will be walking in the dark path.
It depends I wouldn't take it if it is the best thing to do. But you know that you can might do a mistake out of your obsession with love to someone or to something then we need to take the feeling down. You know, there are people that couldn't bare and endure that their love ones end up with someone so the tendency is they do something bad to that person even they could risk a life. Love cure is perfectly suitable for those who couldn't handle and understand their feelings.
Well, I don't think that love can be compared to a disease which needs some kind of a drug or medicine to cure. Love is one of the most beautiful feelings that cannot be easily expressed in words. When you are in love you tend to forget all other things around you. Once you fall in love with someone your whole life changes completely.If you are expecting a lot when in love then you may get hurt if it doesn't succeed. Love is something that has to be experienced and enjoyed till it lasts.
I agree with you love is a feeling that we need to cherish even tho it pains us.
That is right. Love is like that. Sometimes unfair sometimes it is fair to the people.
I don't know about that. I mean love is a powerful emotion and it can influence ones life in many different ways, but you also shouldn't let it dominate or control your life completely. Making you forget about very important stuff. That sounds more like addiction and obsession.
Love and pain is a really important part of our life, it somehow mold who we are going to be in the future and also we learn and mature because of love and pain, so I don't take I will take anything that would cure me from love.
It is always about getting to feel the good side of love which is awesome moments. I believe that as long as we are mature, we can get to control some situations that are going to bring pains into our life.
It is true that if you did not get hurt then it means that your love for the person who hurt was not real. You can only feel the pain if you love is sincere. Without feeling this means what you had with someone is just for fun.
Love is a good thing and that means that I wouldn't be thinking of taking any form of drug that will make me to stop loving. I see love as a good way that I can get to enjoy the good side of life which makes it the ever good thing.
I know right. A friend of mine (girl) always use to say "There is only one happiness in life - and that is to love and be loved."
I think I will save that love cure when I feel heartbroken because I have a weak heart and I can't take being heartbroken for so long.
Definitely no. As a human being getting emotionally hurt is normal. Being not able to feel pain and suffering from love would make one less normal. Besides being hurt is a lesson that needed to be learned, it strengthens people.
Love is very important in our lives because it is where we are being united and getting to know each other. It give us some emotions that are very important for us humans. The happiness and sorrowfulness that we feel are all parts of love. Sometimes love becomes complicated if we are using it in a wrong way.
I remember the song ''Love will keep us alive''. Without love there is no life anymore. We should cherish that feeling always.
Yes that is true and I agree with that song since love makes a man alive because of the feeling of happiness that each one feels. Love really affects the way how we view things around us and it help us to be motivated and look at life in a positive way. We feel to live happier if we experience love in a very special way.
That is right. We must spread love so that happiness feels of every people in this world. Let us stay away from hatred as it is not good in ourselves. We should live happy and with love.
Yes that is really true and we should avoid hatred as much as possible because it can only result to chaos and misunderstanding between us. We should pampered our selves and our fellowmen with love because love can give us happiness in our hearts that are very essential to our health.
I definitely agree with you on that. Stop the hate and spread love. There will be no violence at all if love and happiness prevail.
I will save it when I need it because I'm still in love with someone and I don't want to take it so that I will forget her.
If love have a cure would I take it?
My answer for now is no, I have still no experience when it comes to relaationship towards opposite sex. I am used to talk more with my girl friends and I barely get boy friends because I'm a little shy and I don't have the confidence and I also don't knkw what topic I should say to hit a conversation.
Probably not. It is painful when you are heartbroken but it is normal because you loved someone. You get hurt but it's part being in love. How are you going to be strong if you will not embrace the pain. Because in the end pain will just go away. You will not get hurt if you are not in love.
I did not quite understand what the OP means when he says love cure. Does this mean something to cure when your love runs into a problem, for instance, your partner leaves you, or hurts you?
Since this is a theoretical question, I will answer the question with another theoretical question? Would you really take back someone who left you or hurt you in order to cure your love?
If a love cure drug would be available in the market, for sure it'll always be out of stock because of its high demand. Love is multi-faceted. It doesn't make you feel always like it's Valentines everyday. Being in love doesn't mean you're happy with that person all the time. We also feel sad when we are in love. It could be because of the wrong person choice, wrong time or it's just us who makes things complicated for ourselves. Because of that, I myself would not want a love cure drug for these kinds of things hinder our growth as humans. We always learn more from our mistakes rather than avoiding it. We should let ourselves grow instead of relying on things that will make our life easier. Remember, easy things are those things that makes you bored easily. Always live your life to the fullest whatever problems you may encounter.
I would be among the leading patients to take the drug. Love is sweet, and nobody hates to be loved or to love. However, love can cause a lot of pain, and anger.
One needs to love for the right reasons. If we're talking about heartaches, the best way to get over it is merely to move on. Forgive and then forget. Life goes on, and don't get stuck on something that is not working out for you.
There should be no drugs to cure love. Time and acceptance are the keys to recover from heartache. The more pain you feel, the stronger you will be. Loving without a pain is not challenging at all. As what they say, it is better to be loved than not loved at all.
I think I’d definitely take a drug that cures romantic love. I don’t think that romantic love is a productive emotion, and it only arises as a result of our brain trying to convince us to procreate by any means necessary.
That being said, the key term here is “romantic love,” or rather love that is sexualized. Too often do people confuse true love with intense lust, and it makes even the most intelligent of people do incredibly stupid things, which is why I don’t appreciate it.
With that in mind, I’d never take a cure for real love, as in the kind that you share with close friends and family. That is an invaluable characteristic.
Some says love is sweet but to some love is bitter. But that is the beauty of love, to love someone unconditionally and live a happy life with our loved ones. Most of us experienced broken heart when we were separated with our partner, but that shows true love and should not be regretted. But if love can be cured, we will not have the same experience anymore; more people will be heart broken, after all our partner can be cured why put in true love?
Hmmm, I guess it depends. If I need to stop myself from falling in love because it is for the wrong girl (for example she's married) I might take it. But for anything else, I wouldn't stop myself from loving people. Love is a positive thing. Make love, not war. Right?
I'd prefer a repellent. If there was a repellent that you could take and this could stop certain people from pursing you and disturbing you I would be all for it. Love can be a beautiful thing, even when your relationship does not work.If you are in a relationship with a nice person and you enjoy yourself, even if it does not work you don't feel cheated. Love is a part of life and it should definitely be experienced, even with jerks.
For me I don't think we need a cure in terms of love. I would still go for what love is it now even ther's no cure. Actually there's a cure for love but it is not easy to cure as like other sickness, the acceptance and forgiveness is one medicine we need in terms of love time will heal it also just love yourself more than anyone else, be brave and be more close to your family that any other.
@makr8625 Yes that is really true because of love we can make the world peaceful and a loving one, there will be no wars and chaos but a loving heart that will make us love one another. We need love to our life because we cannot be happy without it and may experience some confusion in our life.
As someone who is used to being alone and haven't experienced what it feels to be sincerely loved by another person, it's kind of a yes for me. Yes I feel love, I love too much to be exact but always the person I choose to love doesn't love me back at all. I'm just tired of the whole process of loving another person then getting hurt.
Love makes the world move. Love isn't just with your partner, love is also towards your parents, friends, family.... If you ask me people without love may just be robots...
Love is not just a good feelings towards another. It can also destroy in a blink of an eye.but i think if you can take all the hurt and still say that you want to be with him/her. That could be love. Be with her through ups and down.
Love is a beautiful feeling between two people. You should truly experience love at least once in your lifetime. You can only feel it when you are in love yourself. True love does not need any cure. People do face difficulties and drift apart sometimes, but true love will eventually bring them together. Ups and downs are common in every relationship and should not be seen as barriers to break the relationship. So, start falling in love and lose yourselves in the magic of love!
I would only take that love pill if it comes from God. He is the only one who can heal the brokenhearted and He is love.
Loving a person is what makes us motivated and alive in this world. If ever there is cure on being brokenhearted, I will not take it because being in love and getting is what makes us a better person and learn from the mistakes we make.
Yes love can suck and chew you up and spit you the heck back out but at the end of the day i feel it is vital to all to feel love at its best . But unfortunately this is easier said than done because there is way to much crazy outlandish and outdated thinking in this world that love gets misconstrued. I've had a taste of love and i would never want to take a cure for it.
This question is confusing, the writer said, "If there's a drug that can cure love." Like what? lol, why would someone cure love, love is not a disease or something that's negative, in fact love's the cure to almost everything if not everything in this world, maybe you mean how can love specifically cure something else.
I'm also confused about this question hahaha why would I cure something like love? Is love a deadly disease? I don't think so what is the point of curing it. Love is one of the most beautiful things in this world, for example, a love of the mother to its child it is a very powerful thing. But if your suffering with love like you lost someone you care maybe I would consider taking the cure.
