I Don't Believe In Unconditional Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 73 People

    I only believe it as a parent to a child.

    But romantic love? nope. If you say you love someone unconditionally, doesn't that mean they can treat you 'any' way they want, good or bad and you'd have to accept that? Doesn't sound healthy to me.

    The Trouble With Love

    You can never, ever be certain that a person loves you unconditionally. You can never truly know the contents of someone's heart. You could be in a wonderful relationship with the person of your dreams. You share everything, know all about each other's life story, likes and...

    UNCONDITIONAL? I don't believe in loving

    someone totally 'unconditionally'. How can there be absolutely no conditions? How?? The closest kind of love I could see fitting under this heading would be a mother's love for her children (and I say 'mother' simply because I am one.....I'm certainly not trying to discount...

    It Would Be Nice But....

    Nothing is unconditional. I have been accused of being conditional. But that very same person puts conditions on me...to move, to die, to suffer, to conform to his conditions so that he can be happy. So what's the difference? There is none. Hate blinds a person from moving on, or...

    I Don'T Think People Think When They Say This...

    "Unconditional Love"People seem to see it as being either black or white. Either there are no conditions and you love each other totally and completely, or, there are conditions, exceptions, clauses, and other legalese which are petty and do nothing at all to contribute to the...

    I Used to Believe In Unconditional Love...

    There was a time that I believed in unconditional love, but I truly don't anymore. I am in a situation where I am totally in love with my wife, but she has a serious problem with negativity. It's to the point where I am literally at the end of my rope with this relationship...

    Not From a Human Stand Point Anyway...

    He Says He Loves Me...

    ..all the time.  But then there's all the things that I don't do right every day.  I'm tired of trying to endlessly please.  He says that I say I'll do things that I never do.  That's true.  I do say I'll do and then somehow time slips by and whatever it...

    Too Much Has Happened To Prove Otherwise

    I see kids with good, healthy relationships with their parents and sometimes (well, a lot of the times actually), I'm envious. I've never known what it's like to have a parent as a best friend, confident, reliant, and predictable adult. Who has been raising me all my life...

    I Just Can't....

    I used to believe in unconditional love and I have given that to several people in my life including some of the people on here. I think that sometimes women are better at giving unconditional love as the men in my life that I have expected unconditional love from really couldn...

    Crazy Logic

    I've always had trouble with the idea of unconditional love. People have tried to explain it to me in various ways. They have said it is love given without expectation of anything in return. To me, unconditional love means that there are no conditions. You will love the person...
