    I used to think so. But it turns out that the closer you get to someone, the more it'll fuck you up. So for me, I'm done with love. Me myself and I might not be as happy alone, but we sure as well won't be as hurt when things end up falling apart. I was born alone and I'm damn well gonna die alone.

    I think that the only way for love to be able to conquer all is if you became completely dependent on that person and enjoyed it. But then the other one in that relationship would hate that, unless they loved being depended on and not doing anything else ever. I doubt love could ever be.. everything. People like their own space too much. They like independence.

    Sometimes, it all depends on how strong the love you feel is.
    The love I have for my sister, will forever conquer all.

    A few months from now the divide between Edmonton and Toronto will have killed love for me twice :\

    It conquers mental illness pretty adequately, though.

    Depends what type of love. If it's an normal affectionate bond, then yes. If it's puppy love romantic feelings that only last for two years or so, then no.

    Love is not real, like fairies and unicorns, you just want to believe in it. Like you wanted to believe in Santa.

    Person's who have suffered by the pangs of unrequited love are fearful of its repetition, which may lead to a depression loop. I have no doubt in love as an ideal: 'tis a consummation devoutly to be wished (contextual application of Shakespeare)', or it lies on the topmost bough unpicked for it lays unripe (Sappho); for many writing in this thread, it seems like love has been found then lost, either due to self-deception or powers lying beyond our control. But i remember the nicer moments, which are frankly the last straw holding me; i found that it helps if i no longer remember the person during such reminices, but just how it made me feel.

    i doubt it. have the cops make you a suspect for some nasty illegal sex act and see how long it takes for your partner or family to leave. you have to be pretty special for people not to leave you, even over a false accusation.
