    Can Love Be Killed?

    I often hear folks say that love conquers all...or see so many women stay with `bad for them` men, quoting as a reason, "I love him"...
    or excusing bad behaviour by saying the same....
    If someone asked me to define love...between man and woman, not talking of parental or sibling love etc...then I`d find it hard, since so much of it is intangible and impossible to pin down emotionally...
    but I`d probably say, the overwhelming knowledge that the welfare and feelings of this person matters more to you than your own (based on my own feelings that when I love someone, I put them first and foremost in my life)
    or the knowledge that you will be with this person until you die, the utter comforting feeling of deep abiding trust and affection that to me, symbolises the love that comes after the first heady rush of `in love` has passed, as it inevitably does.
    But of course others will have their own definition.
    And I wondered if anyone else believes that love can be killed by the actions or words of another?
    To this, I say yes, absolutely.
    I`ve had two long term relationships, one of fourteen years and one almost twenty. I was very young when I got together with my husband, the first...around fourteen when I met him..(did he `groom` me? Yes...) and my love for him was killed over time through deeds..beatings and emotional harm.
    Easy to see.
    But with the second partner, love was killed in one instant with a few terse words and a look in the eyes.
    In case anyone`s thinking, `Well, she may not have truly loved him then`, I can assure you I did.
    But in that moment it was killed stone dead by those words and that look. And it never returned.
    Which makes me wonder at the fragility of love....
    I do believe that for love to last, both parties in a relationship have to make it work, to keep it alive, through many ways, and to not let it die, because it can, easily.
    And I was interested to know if anyone else has experienced the `sudden death` of love?
    Or do you believe true love never dies?
    If so, why?

    Love can be in character like certain weeds, resilient against herbicides and while fire or lawnmowers eradicate stems and foliage, it isn't rooted out, or like reed, that pliantly bows for the raging gale and resurrects imperturbed once the weather calms down...
    It's in some outstanding individuals an immense force that can lift the world from its axis, leave it to flip around a finger in a cosmic waltz, with such grace and balance, that its austere in its beauty and delicate in its might...
    It's a belief, grounded in a truth, in the significant other... it can be shaken, temporarily, or destroyed, if one was misjudged or unworthy, but if one's inner compass got it right from the start, and finds that the beloved person is out of sorts, his or her investment will continue, no matter what it cost, by plainly being the person one is, giving out the full consequence of one's love, unconditionally, a belief that sets the other free from the clogging enchainment of dissonace... they're sculptors, carving, splitting and polishing the rough granite to a artistic highlight, that shines through centuries and inspires generations to come....

    Such pairs are titans in love, they can beaten and slain, surely, but they're immune to corruption, relentless...

    Call me a hopeless romantic, or an idealist..... but I do not believe that true love can ever be killed.

    I think that sometimes we may mistake other things for love, and often that when we think we love someone, then we really do not. It's not as simple as saying "well, you really did not love so-and-so." Because to say that would be making light of a persons feelings. It is much more complex than all of that, and to simplify it into a few words would be an injustice.

    I believe that when there is true love, then there is a fusing of two people that can not be broken or killed. To try and break it would be like ripping off an arm-- which is why it hurts so much. And just as when your arm is ripped off, the arm may be gone (as the other person is gone), but the nerves and brain remember, and there may be a phantom limb forever. This is how it is with true love.

    I'd explain more, but I need to go now...baby is crying.

    Love can be killed in many ways.

    A heart break, or several.

    A change in one person or the other, or several changes.

    Finding out its maybe not who you thought.

    Dishonesty.

    Lying.

    Cheating.

    Anger.

    Years of pain and no solutions.

    Money.

    Addictions.

    The list could go on and on.

    Sometimes you may not ever truly get over that person. Some have that kind of impact on our hearts. Some are easily forgotten. Some are not.

    Whatever the case may be, I would wish for everyone to have true love and happiness working both ways for husband and wife and the world would be such a better place. All it would take is not doing the things mentioned above and by the realization that in marriage, where you don't want it to die, you must know it will not always be easy or perfect. If you have the love tho, you can make it last forever.

    Could love be killed? You mean, could something render you incapable of loving ever again? I think the answer to that question is yes. Aside from organic brain damage, brain chemistry changes brought on by repeated drug use can do the trick... but other than that... I would say no.

    I'm actually living this experiment. I was hopelessly in love, that is to say, I was at the mercy of that woman from 2008 to 2009. I was so in love with her that words actually failed every time I tried to explain it... even now, after having read Webster's dictionary twice, I can't find the right words It was my first love, and I'm still struggling to accept that it was doomed from the start. I was absolutely sure that we were a perfect example that two souls can be meant to find each-other, and either complete each-other, or... one desolate the other. February of 2009, she inexplicably cut all ties with me. I don't know what the hell happened, but I'm guessing I wasn't intelligent enough for her I'm a man of few words. I've gotten over that love, or so I think, about the time I reached my 24th birthday, last year. I was hurt, in the purest sense of the word. I was hurt. Period. If anyone should be rendered incapable of loving a "she-devil" again, it's me. I don't think it's happened tough... I feel just as capable of loving as I did when I was 12 years old

    Can Love Be Killed?

    Absolutely love can be killed with any average high velocity bullet.
    Perhaps I missed something in the question?

    Anything can be killed with just the right amount of ammunition and firepower.

    Sorry cupid your time has come between my scope.........

    To the OP I would say that love is blind, fickle, and in many cases temporary. For me love is just another word for obsession or fetish.

    Destroyed love happens.......

    If you can find love that is meaningful and lasts a long time that is great but from my expiriences such interactions are rare where more recently in my generation are fast becoming rarer....
    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.
