Most Helpful Opinions
The few times where I met guys I could have married or been serious was I was not looking for love. Usually just trying to do what I thought God wanted.0
It's probably true for women but it's a lie for most guys. If I'm not paying attention, then I won't be prepared if it finds me. I'll probably just ignore it because I'm off in my own world and it'll pass on by. Then I'll see it in my rearview mirror and wonder why, if it was love, why didn't it pursue me. Then I'll remember that it's because women don't pursue. They just give occasional vague hints and expect you to pursue. That's why you always have to be paying attention.10
I think it is somewhat accurate. I wasn't looking for anyone when I met my SO, we met at a fundraiser for the hospital and it started from there.0
What Girls & Guys Said
It's largely a false saying. People don't change really. Someone didn't fall in love with you. They just simply noticed you. And the created a story in their head about you that bolstered those feelings. In actuality you didn't have much to do with it.10
Yes this absolutely just happened to me. I finally found real love for the first time in my life.. I had given up thinking I was too old or to unlovable... then out of no where I meet this girl who was not looking for love either.. we started chatting because we had similar interests and it grew from there. Now I can't imagine my life with out her.10
I'd made peace with being single when I met my wife. I didn't expect to fall in love and I wasn't looking.10
I'm always paying attention. Hyper aware of my surroundings like a god damn cat.
Not that it's a false saying. It happens to some people. I was actively looking for it this year :)10
That was in the days when people arranged love for each other. Now they arrange prostitution and STDs.10
I always ended up in detention, but I brought my adult magazines with me.12
I can’t vouch for everyone else but every single romantic encounter I have had in all my 23 years of life has come to me randomly. One of them being a 2 year relationship10
I’m not sure about that but it could be just a coincidence?10
It has not happened yet I have been single for 5 years, so nothing has happened yet.10
It's true that I found it when I'm not looking and I lost it when I got attached to it10
It happened to me when I least expected it. I wasn't looking when it happened.0
More like love wants to find you when you're already taken0
It is a false saying. However, I do know love is a beautiful thing.0
The saying is true, when you least expect it, it somehow might happen0
Yes. That’s when it happened. When I wasn’t looking for it.0
It's just something attractive people say, knowing it only works for them, it doesn't work for ugly bottom feeders like myself.2
It always happens when your not looking for it0
It’s true. I wasn’t really looking and it found me. Well not love, just circumstance, that turned into opportunity. Love came much later.0
I was paying attention goddamn that ass, and those eyes!0
I don't know, I don't think that quote's true.
"love finds you when you're not looking" can be seen as a false saying because it implies that you have to stop actively searching for love in order to find it. In reality, finding love often requires actively putting yourself out there, meeting new people, and being open to new experiences. While it's true that love can sometimes come unexpectedly or from unexpected sources, it's not something that will simply appear out of nowhere without any effort on your part. So, it's important to strike a balance between being open and receptive to love while also actively seeking it out.
I've realised lots of rom-coms are based on this quote and in its magical innuendo and sense that as soon as you start looking for it, love or whatever will find its way to you. And well, it seems to work well for rom-coms and be a popular trope choice between the audience. Although, it's worth bearing in mind that this is only fantasy. Irl most of the time, balance is the key word.
It's not healthy for you to start constantly looking for love so much that you become obsessed about it and makes of it your life goal.
But it's also unrealistic of you to think that love will just pop up out of the blue without you having to put in any effort into getting to know new people.
