Is Love Really Blind?

I was reading this old slambook I found on top of the table from one of my friends' house. I noticed that the most common definition they can give about love is "Love is Blind." Is love really blind? I can see that love is being abused in terms of giving out its concrete definition. And most of the time, people who used it doesn't even know what it means. Totally clueless.

I was looking at this postcard posted in the mirror just beside my bed this morning and saw this postcard with the bible verse from 1 John 4:8 - God is love. Then this logic came to me which is related to the statement: Love is blind. God is Love. Therefore, God is blind.

It make sense now?

This means every time we say love is blind, it means God is also blind which is non-sense. God sees things the and He sees everything. So as love sees more and not less. Loves is not blind, it sees with great clarity. It can see things that the normal vision can't see. Love sees the worst in us and it does not ignore it, instead love forgives.

Every time we say "love is blind" we say selfishness is blind. Just say for example, when one person is looking at himself/herself as the only beautiful person in the world is being selfish. He/she does not see other but of himself/herself. When one lose sight of everything but only himself is blindness.

Some of those who thinks "love is blind" are just people who are blinded by selfishness. They said "love is blind" because they think love fails them. They were hurt and broken-hearted. But the truth is, they are are actually not in love in the first place; they were "in lust" to gratify their personal satisfaction by using other people's weakness. And when things go wrong and they messed up, they then excuse themselves by saying "love is blind".

Love is as clear as the sun. Love is patient and kind and it does not envy and not proud.

Lets start to love with clarity and use it and not abuse.



  1. I think it is much safer or better to say that "Lovers" are blind and not the love itself. ;)

  2. "Love is blind" sagot lang yan ng mga tamad magpaliwanag tulad ko.

    pag nagmahal nga naman minsan di mo na alintana kung ano ang nakikita mo dahil ang mahalaga kung ano ang nararamdaman.

  3. Love is blind --- it depends on how you use it, may it be literaly or figuratively. Nice post :)

  4. Love is not blind. But it sees in its own eyes. A different one that sees beyond the physical, the tangible and the imaginable.

  5. I totally agree with you. Pero napatawa ako sa start kasi I remember those days that we fill-up slambook and your right most definition is "love is blind....." with addition "kung mopilit makabuang."

  6. During my elementary/highschool years, whenever i write down answer to questions such as "what is love", i found myself guilty writing LOVE IS BLIND. Personally, now, i don't think it is blind. Love in its deepest sense is how 1 Cor 13:4-7 describes it.

    Love is PATIENT and KIND. It is not jealous or conceited or proud.
    Love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable.
    Love does not keep a record of wrongs.
    Love is not happy with evil but is happy with the truth.
    Love NEVER GIVES UP; and its faith, hope and patience never fail.

    Having read that, I wonder... how blessed you'll be when you experience love so pure like that. don't you think so? :)

    To GOD be the glory till eternity! :)
