Why? Isn't love supposed to be something amazing and wonderful? I understand there will be some sacrifices made to attain that certain level of love, but there's a limit to where a human can withstand. Am I seeing it the wrong way? Love is beautiful, scary, and confusing all at once. So here I am listening to Mandy by Barry Manilow. Such is life...

Because you make yourself vulnerable to that special someone

It's like you know exactly what's happening. I like that answer.

Sometimes, if you force something that doesn't fit or try to go to fast.

That's a hard question. Because love is something you want, everyone wants that. It is also very fragile and also very strong. That's why we all hope that when we do find someone to love it will be happy and nothing negative. But life isn't perfect, nor is love. But that's why we all have to work on it together when you have your special someone or partner. People are cruel, and use you. But sometimes we have to get over it, because one day the person who will love you for you, will come along. If that person seems forced into the relationship,leave them. It will hurt but why try for someone who doesn't want it.

Because you are human and you have feelings.

If you love someone, you open your heart to them, which makes you vulnerable, especially when that person hurts you, either intentionally or not. Loving them makes it hurt all the more. Of course, love is sweet, which is why people seek it, but every light has its shadow, every rose has a thorn.

Because you were silly enough to let yourself become vulnerable.

I like this response.

Let me add, "Because you were also foolish enough to believe in the good of others."

If it didn't hurt, then it wouldn't be so special. It's because you care so much and truly love that it hurts when something doesn't go right. Of course it isn't necessary for there to be pain. I don't believe love equals pain. I have been in love before and there was no heart rending pain involved.

As to withstanding the pain, I would say as long as you didn't die, you can still withstand more pain. Have you ever heard of someone who dead from heartbreak? That's the limit. Then there's those people who are pretty much half dead because they're so numb they can't feel anything more, but that's another topic.

The answer is simple. It hurts because you have let someone see the very essence of who you are. Humans in general use a social facade (as a defensive mechanism) to protect themselves in some degree or another in daily interactions. When you find someone that you want to create an abnormal bond with raw emotion is required, and to do that you lower your guard showing less of your facade. After you've exposed that part of yourself if it is not reciprocated, understood, or accepted you then feel vulnerable or betrayed to some degree.

Love is not all rainbows and butterflies. It's a mix of emotional euphoria steeped in scars deeper than the blackest abyss. The longer you are with a person you've chosen the more you will love that person and the more that love will change over time, the only thing that will ever be constant is chaos.

Good luck kiddo, just remember to enjoy every painful, chemically induced, mind melding moment of it.

You dig down to build a foundation, but you dig too deep and get lost down there without help.

I have no idea what I'm talking about, but this is what I think of the pain coming from these things.
