Is it possible to love someone your not attracted too?

My best friends girlfriend (I don’t mean this to be mean or anything but need to say it this way so you understand) is very ugly like everyone says she’s gross but for some reason he tells me I love this girl more then anyone else and I don’t see how it’s possible she is not attractive at all and she not super nice or anything either I don’t get it?

  • Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Everyone's attractive to someone. You shouldn't try to get in between them. He likes her, he likes her. Let them be happy.

    • I’m not I act like I like her too because he’s my friend I would never say anything bad if he says he likes her

  • Infatuation is the emotion. Love is the decision that it should generally lead to.

    The emotion lasts 1-2 years max. How long his decision lasts (as a 1-time life-long commitment or as a trial-basis experiment with contingencies and/or an expiration date) is his decision.

    • Correction: "The chemistry-based emotion lasts 1-2 year max, depending on how long the body takes to develop a tolerance for the love/trust/happy hormones oxytocin, dopamine, serotonin, endorphin, etc."

  • i feel like love goes beyond attraction, therefore you can love someone because of their vibe, their aura, multi-faceted personality, etc, but not necessarily think you want to interact with them sexually (altho i think thats an ideal person; love them and be attracted to them, but it doesn't have to happen like that)

  • I don't believe that is how attraction works. One can find what other people deem as an "ugly" person, attractive. They see the beauty that you and these other onlookers miss, and for those reasons, they are attracted to and love that person. Attractiveness goes far beyond the regions of outer appearance. Anyone who isn't shallow knows this to be true.

  • First of all it’s none of yalls business. If he likes her then that’s his business.
