Is Love Actually Blind?

Love. Such a complicated concept. Some see it as a weakness; others fall right into it time and time again. What is love? How do you fall in love? How do you know you're in love? The answers to these questions vary from person to person, but here's what Google has to say:

I was listening to a podcast by I Don't Get It the other day, titled "Love Is Blind" and featuring Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton.

Lauren and Cameron were on Netflix's show Love is Blind, Season 1. If you haven't seen it, you should go watch it now. It's not the greatest show, but it definitely gives you a different perspective on what love is. It also challenges your boundaries regarding how quickly you can fall in love and say the big "L" word to your partner.

In the show, 13 guys & 13 girls date without being able to see each other. They are only allowed to see each other if they get engaged.

Lauren and Cameron were the first couple on the show to get engaged, doing so only after 16 hours of dating. They got married on the show, and they have been married for a year and a half now.

In the podcast, the couple explains that vulnerability was what allowed them to fall in love with each other so quickly. Cameron explains that physical attraction is an important element of love, but Lauren confirms that true love definitely is blind.

I would say that this makes sense. After all, many people often fall in love through online dating only to find out that they were being catfished the entire time.

Is it possible that true love is achieved only after falling in love with someone's vulnerabilities and then confirming physical attraction?

Thanks for stopping by! Leave a comment and tell me whether you've seen the show and what you think of it. Subscribe for more and share if you'd like. Additionally, let me know if there's anything you'd like me to write about.

I think that this “study” had a lot of variables that pointed to it not being a true scientific test as to whether love was blind but rather for entertainment purposes. This is obvious since it is a reality tv show lol. One of the main things you’ll notice is the participants were all still fairly within a range that many would refer to as attractive. While there are various things that may be preference base that might get in the way of a person’s decision it can still highly influence someone relationship retention rate post face to face encounter. I think there are a lot better studies out there that answer this question.
