Uneasy Love

I've been an ardent believer of the "try and understand" people philosophy

It's not a bad philosophy and to a very large extent it should be followed

But beyond that you'll find there's enough about a person you'll just never understand

And so if you are going to base your love on understanding then "curse me to any end for saying this now and not earlier" you are probably gonna be in big trouble

So this line today "Woman are meant to be loved, not to be understood" that i read on FB kinda struck me, while like most sensible statements its corrupted by a bias towards one gender...but if you can get past that...you'll find that only loving is loving...understanding is never gonna be loving

And that's a very uneasy zone...at least for me...because it involves going into a zone where you are vulnerable and exposed, there is no back up of rationality to help you...it sends shivers down your spine and makes your heart rush...

But hey didn't I just describe symptoms of being in love...

I rest my c"ass"e

Isn't 'understanding' supposed to be the derivative of 'love'?

So? Who's the one that is making you feel all this and more? :p

Understanding = Love. Not necessarily, romantic.

agreed with sparkling :)

understanding is not loving .. but loving leads to understanding :)

one more thing is that I rarely see ppl mixing understanding with love .. but they often mix "trusting" with love ... I don't see that as a "necessary" condition too :)
