Which path leads to true love, Unconditional love or Conditional Love?

True Love is rare these days but I think true love is something that can t be easily achieved through a Man or Woman s desire for love. Because the more you desire love the more likely you will question yourself and succumb to the temptations that influences our current Society. Which is the strong sexual desire to mate with attractive people without truly loving them. Love can easily be mistaken as sexual desire but its those kinds of people whom desire love so they seek validation through countless partners in order to find it..I believe that makes love much harder to find because people like that, are actually distancing themselves further away from it. So I came to a conclusion that conditional love is what is holding Society back. Neither Side is unwilling to accept each other flaws because they are in denial of each others feelings, which is causing a misconception between the two. Unconditional love might be the path to true love.

    Unconditional love implies that you'd turn a blind eye to abuse, addiction and other forms of bad behavior. This usually ends in a fury whereas conditional love, when you've made someone prove they're worthy, has a much better track record.

    • which might sound conditional but the only difference is you didnt enforce that person to change.. You didnt do anything but love them. Thats all it takes!

    Unconditional. But you ve also gotta LIKE the person. The two things are not the same. Love cannot solve everything. And loving someone does not mean you are compatible partners.

    The more we desire love, the more we will fail.

    On the other hand, the more we desire TO love others, ALL others, the more successful personal relationships will be.

    True love for a romantic partner should not be any different from the love we have for our parents, our children, our friends, for humanity at large.

    But the more attached we become to a relationship, the more selfish we become and our over-reactions and selfish actions drive the other away.

    While sexual desire is instinctive, it is the most-destructive of love.

    Love is only in the truth and the truth is only in love. This is why the truth is our only salvation from our own lies and the truth is only found by those that choose to seek Him. Hope this helps!

    Source(s): “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.“ (1John 4:7-8)

  • Must be conditional...otherwise it's one-way. Otherwise, you may pair up with (or be) an abuser at some level. It may (or may not) be at the physical level, but it it may be a minor as one taking the other for granted, lack of communication, focus on only one of the persons goals/needs, etc. There should be far more tolerance and empathy with true love, but there should never be intolerable loss to one's fulfillment of their own lives.

    Great topic to be thinking about, imo. What is the path to genuine love? What more important, relevant question could we ask? I think unconditional love is real, but only applies to babies and only for the first year or so. After that, conditions do emerge, like it or not. Love is like any food preparation, in that there is a recipe. You must follow the recipe or you just don't get your Beef Wellington or whatever it is. The recipe for authentic love is two things - emotional closeness and decent behavior. Those are the only two ingredients. And both come with considerable constraints, or conditions.

    Love is unconditional. If one's esteem is conditional, that's not love.

    Furthermore, you speak like love isn't a verb, like it's an emotion that just happens to you, not something you do. Love comes about from action, not inaction. The feelings of love you experience, they don't just fall on you out of the sky but are the results of actions and choices you make that nurture and grow them--willing sacrifice, glad service, etc.

    • I am speaking based on my own experience and other people experiences.
