Human need food, water, air, sleep and heat source in countries where is cold. All these you can buy with money.
So my answer is you don't need love to live you need money.

for asexual people or orphan or other kind of people, then yes they can live without love becoz they r too strong and i believe they have a reasons/hopes to keep living
but im pretty sure they might kill themselves later becoz its really suffering to not having a real love in their life
its just depend on who person is

I blame the baby boomers for humanity reaching the point where a question like this can be asked with a straight face.

It is possible to live without love of any kind, some humans would die, but those that don't will turn into something no longer human, and if they pass on their DNA, evolve into some new species of human that has to live solitary upon reach the age of maturity, with instincts to stay away from other humans.

I mean, just look at all the species of non-social animals there are on earth, how much they hate company and fight even those of their species when they meet. While social species evolved to enjoy the company of others. Each lifestyle has it's advantages and disadvantages.
I think people are uncomfortable thinking of lifestyles that aren't like theres (Such as the discomforting thought of a human who can somehow live without love) because it causes them to try to put themeselves in their place, causing their social instincts to go awry to prevent you from deviating from the lifestyle evolution gave you.


Hilarious. Love isn't even part of evolution.

Love, technology, books, everything humans have made is a byproduct of evolution. We are evolving to be creatures that create and build the most complex tools. Tools that have reached complexity beyond what any other animal species can do. Are hands are a testament of the evolutionary path of tool manipulation. Without these precise fingers which can carve even visual, almost realistic illusions(art). Love is just something new that appeared recently in the evolutionary traits pool, just like our big brains that have evolved beyond any animal brain to produce the most intricate of things. Since love isn't fully evolved, people will still steer away and be repulsed when their attempts at it fail. I'm hoping that eventually, despite all the failures, someday, hudnreds, if not thousands of years in the future, mankind will have evolved love to the level people are able to feel now, but not quite realize yet.

IMO: Only if they were loved early in life, they may be able to live without it as an adult. I don't believe a child can grow up mentally healthy without having loving people in their life, they'll probably end up making decisions that will cut their life short.

A single generation can't realistically portray anything on an evolutionary scale. If one is left alone from birth they will be a 'primal' reflection of humanity, in the sense of what that means at any given time in known history.

The will, or instinct to survive is the the strongest to have ever been observed.

A person who is/has been loved, who loses everything or is now utterly isolated depends entirely on the circumstance and the individual. The individual is the byproduct of genetics, but mostly, a lifetime of experiences.

Some people kill themselves. Some people bounce back stronger, better and more determined. There's no blueprint, there are no rules.

Just general love? That's kind of a hard question...

It's true that family-love is important, but some people don't even have a family.

Those who don't have a family to help nurture them through life sometimes end up on welfare.

Some go to an ultimate downfall called poverty and live alone.

Others can easily make it to the top without anyone helping, or "loving" them.

Some just learn to love themselves, or life in general.

Love is an every day thing. you experience it everywhere when you see, hear, taste, smell, touch something your either going to love it or not love (hate/dislike/ detest/resentment those are forms of love) its 100% impossible to without love. without love no species would live thus their would be no life and no life means no creation of money. Even if you lack the psychological sense of the emotion of love and you can't feel in any form or way what love is yourself; you will always experience some form of love from someone or something whether it be living or not, human or not, physical or spiritual. The feeling of love is an essential part of someone's every day life and its also 100% inescapable. Love was an important part in the creation of all living things speaking on behalf of both being a follower of Jesus Christ, and his father, and People that believe more in Darwin's Evolution Theory without love no living thing would exist. Love is the first thing you learned at birth. love for you was received the moment you were conceived. You were either loved (hopefully) by your family or hated for what ever the reason may be. Love is an important part in human motivation. If you didn't love your work their would be no nations, cities, inventions actually nothing that we have in today's matter world would exist, who knows where we would be perhaps we would all be extinct. I could go on for PAGES with this topic but in short the things i wanted to point out are THAT LOVE IS 100% INESCAPABLE and LOVE IS EXPERIENCED EVERYWHERE FROM SOMEONE OR SOMETHING IN SOME FORM OR MANNER and WITHOUT LOVE WE WOULDN'T EXIST, YOU WOULD NOT EXIST, MORE IMPORTANTLY NOTHING WOULD EXIST.

The heavenly father loves us all (that is for all us believers)

I'm sorry to all you non believers but i don't know what to say to keep things balanced.

im trying to avoid conflict here.

We can live without love but it would be an empty, and meaningless life. The person would be angry the whole time and that person would feel the need of something else...he/she will long for love even if they're not aware of it.

Love is important and the meaning of life.

Simple answer, yes, the concept of "Love" has been distorted so much these days that we don't even need it

people with weak social bonds are at high risk of suicide.
