Why does Love Hurt?
11 Best answers

1. It is the absence of mutual love that hurts.

2. Loving someone for the wrong reasons or loving only certain qualities. Not loving the whole person.

3. Loving the wrong person. You put your heart and soul out there and it gets mistreated.

4. You don’t fully understand what love is or what it means to love unconditionally.

5. You have too many expectations. It’s like you’re saying I will love you if… Many people think love has rules. There are no rules to love.

6. You blame love but it isn’t love that hurts. What hurts is being lied to, cheated on, abused, neglected, rejected, mistreated, etc.

7. You don’t have self-love. The only love to yourself is the love you expect from the other person. When you truly love yourself, the extra demand is lifted off of the other person and you can enjoy true love.

8. You are in love with how the person makes you feel and not necessarily loving the other person.

9. You don’t know how to handle or control your emotions. You take things personal.

10. You expect the fairy tale you see on television. You compare your love/relationship to someone else’s and when it doesn’t add up or look like that other image you have in your mind, you feel let down or hurt.

11. You don’t agree to disagree. You can be in love with someone who doesn’t like the same things as you or doesn’t think like you. Hey, that’s probably what drew you to them in the first place. Their uniqueness!
