Love Skeptic or Love Optimist?

I was thinking back across my love life. I think I am a love skeptic. So I thought up a few questions to test whether you're a love skeptic or love optimist.

1. Do you think love lasts forever?

If you do you're leaning towards optimist.

2. Do you think that you love your partner more than they love you?

If so, chances are you are a love skeptic.

3. Do you wonder "why?" when somebody tells you "I love you?"

If so, you're a love skeptic.

I'm sure there are a lot of other questions to be asked. But the most important one is, if you're a love skeptic, why?

I find myself very doubtful of love. I think that most times, when somebody says "I love you", I think they really mean, "I don't love you or hate you; it's not about you. I just don't want to be alone, so I'll say I love you in order to get you to say you love me, so I can feel good".

Yeah, I'm a skeptic. How about you?

Im definitely a love skeptic, and i think your following statement is so very true, you took the words right out of my mouth, as meatloaf once said!

Hey Sir John are you married? I'm an skeptic but I believe optimist is better so I'm going that way.

I know I am optimistic when it comes to love but when I answered those questions, yay! I was boomed! it turns out that I am skeptic!

yeah, there are lots of questions to be answered before you are considered skeptic, AND I still believe I am an optimist one.

Hmm. Let's see if I can answer your questions..

I think love can last forever, but not always. Like for me it is hard to turn those feelings off, of caring I mean, even if I have fallen out of romantic love... so I can still feel a friendly love. I think there are different kinds of love, such as romantic love, the kind of love you have for a dear friend, the love you have for family members, and the love a parent has for their child.

I usually do think I care for the person more, and so far I've been right. If I love, I do so with all of my heart.

If someone tells me they love me, I don't ask why....

But all in all, as a whole, I think I am more optimistic about love than a skeptic. Just because one relationship may end, it doesn't mean you won't find love again.

If you're a love skeptic and you're in the driver's seat, THEY sleep in the wet spot.
If you're a love skeptic and you're not in the driver's seat, YOU sleep in the wet spot.

If you're a love optimist, YOU BOTH sleep in the wet spot.

With the "feet behind the ears" thing, I'd say you were an optimist.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Winston Churchill

As for love I am assuming it is working the same ;-)

I'm both a skeptic and an optimist.

I'm optimistic because I believe true love does exist.....and I think it can last forever, provided it's always tended to and never taken for granted. Partners should be equals in every way.....and have mutual respect for each other, as well.

I'm skeptical because I think sometimes people think they're in love, when all it ends up being is lust.....which doesn't last forever.

I'm also skeptical because I know so many people who married for money.....but, continue to disguise their gold digging as love.
