Having to leave the one you love hurts sooo much more :(
if it hurts, somethin' ain't right
Hmmm?...perhaps more lubrication is needed!!
because there is no lubricant ?
Some of these answers aren't necessarily true! Someone can love you back and STILL HURT you time and again. It hurts because we make ourselves so vulnerable to our lover. They can push the buttons, and do so when they feel like hurting us.
"Love is always more fun to play when it is harder and it hurts"
It only hurts if the one you love doesn't love you back.
Seroiusly? It's not that love hurts it's the fear of loosing it that hurts.
the wrong one?
Its not so much the love that hurts, its the obsession !
No, that's not right, Dobbs. Occasionally (admittedly rare in today's world), merely loving someone can hurt.
To pull an off-the-wall example, let's say that you're genuinely in love with someone from a third-world country (where's this coming from? ...couldn't tell you). Now, you LOVE this person, right? So you want to improve their life, because you just can't stand to see the one you love struggling in such a way.
Now, you try to help, but bursting up like a flame from a smoldering heap, their human pride jumps up to hinder your genuine care/assistance. What are you to do, but continue to love, in concurrent pain, while the love of your life strains themselves unnecessarily?
If you didn't love them, it wouldn't hurt, so in a way of conceptualization, it's the very loving of them that hurts.
That's only one example; there are others
Good point. I admit this was a hasty answer. x
