We always deceive ourselves twice about the people we love - first to their advantage, then to their disadvantage. -- Albert Camus
Is love truly blind? ...or is true love that in which all the faults of your counterpart are revealed and you still love them? I believe the latter. When we love blindly, we are loving the idea of the other person, not the person. If you love the person you are less likely to be disappointed... we are all human and with that, falliable.
Love like your life depends on it.
