    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...

    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...

    Not From a Human Stand Point Anyway...

    ... and it depends on your definition of love and if you believe there is more than one kind of love.  Like the way you my love your wife, is different than your Mother, which is different than your brother, which is different than your cousin and different from a friend and...

    Hmmmm

    I used to think it existed but after me giving it to another and getting just heartache in return I really don't think I will meet someone who can give it in return.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
