1. Do you believe in love at first sight? Why or why not?
I do not believe in love at first sight. It takes time to get to know and to realize if you love someone or not. Although, I do believe in attraction at first sight.
2. Do you see a difference between being "in love" and loving someone?
I see a difference between being “in love” and loving someone. Being “in love” is more of an intimate relationship with a significant other rather than just loving a family member or friend.
3. Can you love or be in love with someone who doesn't love you back?
It is possible to love someone who does not love you back. Love is unconditional, and is based on a person’s emotions. When you love someone it is hard to change your feelings towards them, even if they do not feel the same towards you.
4. Think of married couples whom you know: Do you see different types of love between these couples? On what bases do you think they based their decisions to marry?
The married couples I know obviously display their love for each other in different ways. Some get along very well and are perfect for each other. Other couples have their differences but at the end of the day it is evident that they love each other. I think couples should base their decisions to marry on compatibility, similar interests, beliefs, trust with one another, and honesty.
5. Comment on/React to each of these statements:
a) Love is blind: When loving someone/being in love it is easy too look past the flaws and accept them for who they are.
b) Opposites attract: I believe that opposites do attract, but it may not necessarily have a good outcome. Having someone that is just like you means having the same kinds of problems that will be difficult for both people to deal with. When you have an opposite, you can help each other with the different hardships.
c) Love conquers all: Your love for someone will help you persevere through the obstacles in your life. Knowing that there are people who love you and care about you will guide your outlook on life and how you view things.
d) The course of true love never did run smooth: Nothing is perfect. The bumps in the road you experience and the hard times spent together will only bring you closer to one another.
