  • yea... your update is right...
    I need someone who sees the bad in me and accepts me and loves me, in spite of my flaws. That's how I read it. I agree with that.

    In other words, the person sees beauty in your prior hurts. Like when I understand a girlfriend, why she reacts how she does and hurts and can go towards her, that is a good thing. That requires empathy or strength.

    I don't really want too many negative qualities:) People are kind of like mine fields... except with words and situation.

  • I think there is a lot of truth in that and it argues for being yourself and giving someone a true picture of you since not only can good qualities compensate for less wonderful ones, but at least your new partner isn't blindsided and caught by surprise when it comes to your less wonderful qualities or characteristics.

  • Yes. If someone only loved the good in me, it wouldn't be the type of love I'd want. That would be too superficial. I want to be accepted and loved for all that I am. To be loved for my negative traits and flaws , not just the part of me that's good.

    When I fall in love, I fall in love with a guys good and bad side. His good qualities and bad traits. His flaws and imperfections. Love can't last if you only love the good in someone.

  • It's a little... irrational. I think the right sort of partner sees the good and the bad and is interested in all of it. If someone only wanted you because of all your negative qualities, I'd have to wonder what they were getting out of it.

  • It sounds like the words of someone with great insecurities in that they will only accept being with someone who is well aware of their flaws and willing to settle for those because they can do no better so the other person isn't scared of being cheated on.

  • To me this implies an expectation they should accept the bad things as they are.

    I don't know that sounds like the beginning of a bad relationship.

    Obviously it doesn’t state that outright but I think it’s a given that no one is perfect and that when you love someone for what they are... including striving to be better tomorrow than they are today

  • Yes, thats why I was married to him. In order for two people to walk down the asel, one have accepted the good and bad. I lived a good marriage for many years.
    It wasn't the good/bad qualities that broke my marriage. It was the core value that was violated.

  • They see your faults and your imperfects let us know it is ok that we are not perfect either. I can't tell you the relief even to tears to know that when your SO messes up, it lets you know that you are both imperfect and are on the same journey together. It is a sweet and beautiful thing

  • I like the quote a lot and I think that people loving us despite our faults is really what actual love is. You can choose what parts of a person you don't like all that much but you can't say you love someone and pick and choose which parts to love.

  • Well there needs to be good as well. Flaws should be worked on rather than embraced. This quote sort of insinuates a complacent attitude. Maybe I’m just basing this off personal experience, but that’s what it strikes me as.

  • I kinda work on the idea that perfection is imperfect, therefore whilst you fall in love with someones best points it's their flaws you ultimately learn to love and appreciate. So I kinda understand it , but would word it differently lol

  • It's a good quote, it means they love you for who you are, and are willing to accept your flaws because you are human, and you don't have to sacrifice your sense of self to satisfy them.

  • No one is perfect. If you think someone is perfect you're being deceived. You need to see someone's flaws to know who they are, and only then you can decide if you like them or not.
