  • Yes, unfortunately. Despite everything I still love her - but I will never go back. Update. Things have changed since I wrote this answer. In relation to the person I was talking about, I care about her - but I don't love her any more.
  • Yes, mothers love for their child is unconditional and honest. Those who LOVE they do it so. It is not love if conditions are laid.
  • yes because love is accepting your loved ones with no ifs, buts or maybes. love is helping them in everway with out asking for anything in return. if there are conditions laid on the table then it is not love at all, for love will walk many miles and go through many storms and at the end, love is satisfied with a single hug or a simple "i love you too".
  • It is the highest ideal to love unconditionally , and that is a good thing to aspire to, however it is important to be okay about where we are at as human beings and to acknowledge our limitations and imperfections. So we can aspire to love unconditionally, but if we dont succeed, thats okay - its better to have tried. I doubt there is any human that could honestly say that they are able to love unconditionally all of the time, but Im sure there are some poeple out there that come close -the main example is mother - child love.
  • Yes, with the help of God in our lives. Forgiveness must be a part our everyday lives. We are taught to forgive 70 times 7, which is always.
  • In my honest opinion, no. People I thought I loved unconditionally pushed me way over the edge. Then again, I have yet to have children. If I ever do, I'll get back to you on it
  • My mom says yes :) If my dog could talk he would agree. As for myself, yes, I do have the capacity to love others unconditionally.
  • No, I think you can love a person with your whole being but not unconditionally . To retain any form of respect or sanity you must be able to recognise and accept their shortcomings . Unconditionally, is to allow yourself to be walked all over and humiliated. I could not accept that nor would I want anyone to accept that from me Edit, Yes i think a Mother may love her child unconditionally
  • I personally feel that any other kind of love is, frankly, false. True love is longsuffering and kind regardless. That doesn't mean that we have to keep people in our lives that do more harm than good, but rather that we never succumb to hatred, and that we maintain that there is always hope for people to change.
  • yeap~ i think we can honestly love someone unconditionally... but i cannot tell this kinda love can last for that long`````` mother love that's different,that's without choice and forever````
  • Yes of course,i love my children so much,no matter what they do i love them i will always love them.:)
  • Only your children...
  • Honestly? I think most of us can't. Oh, we talk about it. We even may think we do it, but most people have limits they may or may not admit to on their love. Just because our love is never pushed to those limits, or meets up with one of our "conditions" doesn't mean its unconditional.
  • I think if we cannot, we can at least strive to. With regards to a child...I think it's easier. Although with adults...sometimes even adult children we can become confused. UNCONDITIONAL LOVE....What exactly does this mean, where do we set conditions? If your spouse is abusive, is it then acceptable to feel an unconditional love and STILL set healthy boundaries? Does unconditional love mean that you STAY in the relationship and allow the abuse against you, or against your children to continue? I would say NO.. And if NO is then the line you draw...and you leave, divorce, and then at some point in time meet an adult person who is functioning in more acceptable ways...should you not be free to remarry? This would all be conditional...beat me, abuse me..or our children and I will leave you! And what about adult children who develop problems based upon poor choices. Drugs, drinking, sex, gambling, constant over spending that leaves them unable to care for themselves...and so they turn to the parents to BAIL THEM OUT over and over, while continuing to indulge in destructive habits...what then...TOUGH LOVE? Is that a condition? I love you, but if you continue these behaviors, I will withdraw certain types of support from you... I think we all apply certain type of conditions to our love, weather we are aware that we do or not.
  • becuase we are sinners, I would say no. We all fail. but we can ask for help to work towards it.
  • Yes we can.
  • Yes I think so, I think it depends on how dedicated of a person you are towards Loving a someone. But a mother can easily love their child unconditionally and i have no trouble loving my girlfriend unconditionally.
  • I think it's possible, but unlikely. Kids and family are exceptions, but even those are conditional in some ways.
  • Yes. And I don't think it is only family or lovers that we feel this for. I love some of my friends no matter what they do. Of course I get told I'm too accepting.
  • YES ITS TRUE IF YOU REALLY FALL IN LOVE
  • Yes, if you have a purpose for love. Without Jesus and God, i don't think i would ever help anyone but myself. it's not because of the threat of hell that i live for him, it's because of the purpose of love. there would be no point in loving without a conscience and a soul, and my brain wouldn't have to think about it, as it simply doesn't exist and doesn't serve a purpose doing it. with God existing and love still going around, non christians still do show love, but if God simply didn't exist, the 'idea' of love would not be something our brain would see fit to use our bodies for.
  • Loving some with all the things that bug you about them and being ok with it is un-conditional love. Unfortuanately i have loved un-comditionally but i havent been love that way yet. But sure do hope I see it someday.
  • Right now my love is conditional upon someone not trying to kill me. I've never loved someone after they have tried to kill me. . . Of course no one has ever tried to kill me either.
  • Yes you must not be a parent yet. When you are you will know.
  • Only under one condition, they don't cheat if they are a spouse.....
  • no. even with children, i'm not sure that it's possible. although, i would imagine that the love for a child is different and probably can withstand more troubles. still, i every love must have some boundry to be crossed that would change things. for many, this boundry may never be crossed and so they may not realize it even exists!
  • Definitely...I unconditionally love my parents, siblings, children and husband.
  • Yes, but I don't think a lot of people can commit to the conscious act of loving unconditionally indefinitely if it's not their child. People have limits.
  • Oh Yes. Unconditional love means that the love is not based on the loved one having to be or do something that the lover wants to change as "I love you so much, but...." the moment "but" is expressed, it reverses all that is in the first part of the sentence. Unconditional love never needs to be said, as in, "I love you unconditionally..." Only the loved one knows what unconditional love is and whether the love that is received is full, totally given without requiring any desired change by them. Would anyone ever look your dog or cat in the eye and say, "hmmm, I know that you don't love me unconditionally because you..."
  • yes if u truly do love someone then you will unconditionally love them if you put limits on your love for someone then you do not love that person. you should love someone no matter what.
  • Of course! that what try love mean or in other words, the foundation of love is "unconditional".
  • Oh yes, I know I have. I know it doesn't matter what my family or closest friends do or say... I will still love them and be there for them no matter what happens in life or how much time lapses.
  • Aye..but love does not necessarily mean acceptance.
  • Yes until the moral code (whatever that is for the individuals involved)is broken and then conditions will certainly enter the relationship.
  • There is a girl in my life... She has cheated on me 3 times... She started going out with somebody else behind my back... And yet... I still love her more than anything. All I care about is her happiness. I don't want anything in return, even though it hurts so much knowing that she doesn't care about me like she used to. I pushed her away from myself, because she suffered, she came to me in the mornings crying, and it killed me inside, because I couldn't do anything for her, because I couldn't put a smile back on her face. I drove her into another mans arms because I wanted her to be happy more than I wanted to be with her. You tell me what that is. Because I don't even know.
  • Yes when you meet your first child...thats when u experience unconditional love for the first time
  • yeah! i am still doing that.but some circumstances leave me thinking whether it is possible.
  • i can not speak for every one , but i do love my boyfriend unconditionally and he knows it.
  • My wife, who I have been married to for twenty years. Also, My dog.
  • my daughter
  • My wife, my children, my dad, my brother and sister, and my father in law.
  • yes i do :)
