Correction. Love makes people impulsive and stupid.

Dear Roller Blinds,

Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937) was the Scottish playwright and novelist best known as the creator of PETER PAN. This is what he wrote in THE LITTLE MINISTER:

"Love, it is said, is blind, but love is not blind. It is an extra eye, which shows us what is most worthy of regard. To see the best is to see most clearly, and it is the lover’s privilege."

Nice one!

Yes, very nice.

Now if we humans could just remember to factor in what's left over after we have determined what is "the most worth of regard."

It can certainly do that. However, I'd like your question more if we took an "l" out of it because then it would read, "Why does love make people bind?" and that'd be a whole lot easier to answer.

Welcome to Blurtit. I like your user name. I used to know a guy called Joe Dawes and he was so devious we called him "Sliding Dawes". Yours is much nicer.

When people are in it . . . They tend to leg go of part of their logical reasoning. Decisions made purely on emotion aren't always the most sound . . They are based on the ebb and flow of the what lights up those particular parts of our brain that makes us feel good, and the influx of the accompanying chemicals . . . Our impulsive brain LOVES to feel this way (unless you have an unsound one) so it tosses out some good old cognitive functioning to have this feeling for as long as it can.

So in a way, it can shut down Reasoning that would otherwise give us clarity . . Making us "Blind" or a blurred vision in need of Prescription Reason Wear.

Roller! The feeling is simply overwhelming and it prevents lovers to make clear
judgements and see negative sides if they ever show up! However, it’s not
something that cannot be dealt with. Most are normally pretty happy with their
relationships and genuine love is what keeps things going for the best!

I think what they mean by love is blind means that when you are in love you are blinded to things most would think are "faults." For instance when your wife gets stretch marks after having your baby..... Your love makes you blind to seeing them. Or I think I am a lot fatter then my husband sees me as. Love is blind. LOL!
