Love is Blind

Before you continue reading, let me ask you a question — you can keep your answer to yourself, or you can comment down below and then at the end of this post, add on your thoughts about this. So here’s the question:

Do you believe that love is blind?

Please think of it before you proceed reading! I was really shook when someone asked me that and I don’t really know what to answer.

But still, I answered yes. I do believe that love is blind– my perception was, if you truly love someone, you will accept all of their imperfections and their whole self. It doesn’t really matter if the one you love is black, white, Asian, American, chubby, skinny or what– what matters is how you accept them as a whole.

And my community sister told me that since I believe that love is blind, I should rephrase that thinking with love sees. Love sees all your imperfections- may it be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Love sees it all.

So let’s rephrase the thinking that love is blind because in fact, love sees. Love sees everything.

Now, please comment your thoughts about this! Do you agree or do you still have other opinions?


Woop sorry for this short post! I really had to share this because when I was asked, I kept on thinking and didn’t really know what to answer. Thank you for reading and happy Friday y’all!

  1. Agreed. 100%

    1. Aw thank you so much!! ❤

  2. I believe love should be balanced. A beautiful meaning of true love given by you which knows no meaning of discrimination but when you take wrong decisions in the name of love than that’s not blind love but a foolish decision effecting yourself and your loved ones..

    1. Aw that’s so true as well! I know a couple wherein the girl left her family for the guy- I thought it would really be devastating for her family! 😣 Well thank you for sharing!! ❤

  3. Wow, Jirah that’s a good one. I’ll look at love in two ways: God’s love vs man’s love. God’s love for us goes beyond what we look like, what we’ve done and who we are. Whereas man’s love for each other looks at all of the above and then some. Ultimately, we are commanded to love each and not judge. God also said to be wise and not foolish. Love with your heart but keep your eyes and ears sensitive for the good in others but not blind to the negative.

    1. Aw thank you so much for sharing, Cherylene! I loved how you define love and it’s true– the everlasting love by God and the love of a man. My friend used to say that I should always guard my heart because God wants me to guard it as well– I thought I could relate it in your last two sentences. ❤ Thank you so much for sharing!!

      1. Thank you!😊

  4. I’ve never thought about it like this. wow.

    I see exactly what you mean. I always did think love was blind.

    1. Aw thank you so much!! Me, too! I never thought of love sees but always love is blind! ☺❤

  5. I would have to agree that love is blind (because of what you exactly wrote up there). But “love sees” is more beautiful. When you say “blind,” there is the connotation of “making a fool of yourself.” But “love sees” tells us that we don’t overlook the faults of our partner. We see them and we learn how to embrace them.

    1. Aw thank you so much!!! I think you explained it better than me. It was exactly my thoughts that I can’t put into words! Thank you for sharing!!!! ❤

  6. I honestly would have no idea how to answer that question either if I was asked!! It’s a really hard one xx

    1. Yeees girl yes! It was a really difficult situation for me! 😅❤

      1. I can imagine!! Xx

  7. O my, deep question indeed! Hmm I think sometimes yes, love does make us blind. Maybe a lil’ too blind. Like, when you’re deeply in love sometimes you end up doing foolish things and… which is probably why breakups and divorces happen. Get what I mean? (do check your Hangouts. I answered your question) Maybe love can help you embrace the other person’s flaw but I’m not sure if I would call that “blind.”

    1. Aw thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, Starling. I see your point there and yes, I don’t think I can call it ‘blind’ as well. ❤ And thank you for the Hangouts reply!!

      1. Npnp

  8. It’s a really good question. I think love can be blind in the sense people fall in love with the idea of love. People have crushes and are hyped in the puppy love or honeymoon stage…and then the veil is taken away and many people find out what they “fell in love with” was not the reality. We can blind by our own emotions.

    But real love isn’t blind in that sense, which you shared. We see everything, and we accept it. Nothing is hidden.

    1. Awe thank you so so much for sharing your thoughts, T.R! I’ve encountered a lot of people wherein they say that they fell out of love or something like “he/she wasn’t the person I fell inlove with” and I think it wasn’t love at all.

      And thank you so much again! ❤

  9. Wow I loved releasing the love is blind to love sees. That’s so true. I feel like say if you were infuated rather than loving someone, you would be blind of parts of them. But if you love them, you see all even the flaws and still love. XOXO

    1. Yaaas that is SO true!!! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts– this is a really good topic to discuss. ❤ Here’s to love sees!!! ❤

  10. I love your rewrite! Because my experience has been exactly that. My hubby and I could not look more different, but if you take a look at my most recent post, you’ll see he’s become quite the Bollywood dancer!

    1. Thank you so much! And woah that is so cool, I’d check it out as soon as I can! 🙂 Thank you for visiting my blog and dropping a comment– it is highly appreciated! 💗
