I don't really know... Seeing as I can't really do too much out of a limit, due to my adolescent age. I would never travel out of state or country, because I don't have the money, or control. (Unless I run away.) And I would never spread dirty rumors, or throw myself upon that person. Or kill anybody, no no.

I guess I've never really been that "in love" before, aside from feelings of long-term infatuation. Then I get over it.

I wouldn't go very far. I'm not sure if I'm the only one who feels this way, but I've never felt this "love" emotion to the point where it overrides the logical aspect of my brain.

Like I've heard stories where people will rob a bank for their lover or murder for their lover, or even convert to a specific religion for their lover.

That is so lame to me, I would never force myself to believe in something just because it's a condition someone sets for me, if someone I "love" asks me to convert, I will be like, "F... you, I'm not believing in any sh.t that cannot be proven."

In conclusion, I don't believe love can override my logical aspect. I'm a very analytical person, I don't act on something unless I can make logical sense of it first.

That is a bit hard to answerer just yes or no, and really depends on a persons understanding of love.

If I really love someone then there isn't anything they could do that I wouldn't be able to forgive or that would make me stop loving them. But I don't have to approve of everything they do, and I can feel disappointed in their decisions and actions. When we see the people we love that are in trouble the natural immediate reaction is to do whatever we can to help them; however I think that in the heat of the moment we do what our loved ones want us to do and not what they need us to do. What people want isn't always what is best for them in the long run and can actually end up hurting them more or getting them into even more trouble.

So as an extreme example lets say a loved one kills someone and wants me to help them cover it up. Some might think that if I really loved them that I would "of course" do as they ask, but that isn't what they need and would hurt them more in the long run. I would be disappointed with their decision and actions but I would still love that person and would still stand by them, but I wouldn't help them cover up their crime and I would encourage them to own up to their actions and try to make amends. If I was to give them what they wanted and not what they needed I would be stunting their growth and not allowing them to move past their crime, by giving them what they need I give them the opportunity to learn from their mistakes and move on in life.

As an less extreme example lets say that a loved one wants me to go out and do an activity that I hate, but that they really like. Well yes I would "of course" go with them to show my love, my support, and my respect for them. Now obviously this isn't as difficult a choice as the first example (although depending on how much I hate the activity in question it may feel just as, if not more so, difficult). But it shows love in a similar way, in that sometimes love is about putting your personal feelings aside and doing what is best for the person you love.

if i really loved them, i would go to any ends to do what was required...
but love is like a double edged dagger- if one side is blunt, how can you ever effectively stab someone?

i don't mind if someone has their limits... as long as i know i can trust them, and they trust me, that's all i ask for

I'd do anything for love, but I won't do that.

I wouldn't kill. Maybe paralyze someone to protect him, but I definitely wouldn't kill.

Seemed fitting.

I'm going to agree with what seems t obe the consensus, talk is cheap. The best say t odesplay your affection for someone is actions. Ideally, somthing only you can do, if plausable of course.
