Why do you think people hide love but express hatred so openly?

Many people aren't shown love or how to express it their entire life, why should they be the ones to break the cycle if they don't know how?
Also, a romantic love can ruin a friendship, so it can be better to hide it.
And sometimes you're not sure if you feel love (platonic or romantic one), or not. So you technically hide it if you actually feel it but aren't certain about it.
Hatred has been the driving force for many of our historical events. It's not difficult to hate.
It's probably even easier to spread hate nowadays than it used to be - just be anonymous, and what can happen to you, right?
It's also easy to hate if you've lived in the same place your entire life, with the same people, same culture, belief system and so on. It's the only thing you know. Everything else is bad. Or that's what you're taught, at least.
It's common to be hateful if you've got self-image issues, too. If you hate on other people, you'll feel better about yourself or forget about what you dislike/hate about yourself.
It's so much easier to be mean and hateful than kind and loving. What do you need to hate? Only anger, probably. You don't even need a strong argument, you can hate on literally anything or anyone for literally anything. It doesn't even have to make sense. What do you need to be kind and show love? Be self-aware, patient, empathetic, educated, actually taught how to express love. Those aren't qualities every person has or learns/is taught to have.
All of these reasons are just the ones I could think of at the moment, surely there are tens of other ones as well.
A nice question, by the way.

We can save many relations, if we understand a simple fact that…

AisyahIsHere2’s Profile PhotoAisyahpotated
everyone just wants to be heard and respected. Once you treat people in a way that denies their uniqueness, you deflate them. They disengage, they lose trust. And then-- whether it's romantic, workplace, friendship, family or world interactions--the relationship has one foot in the grave.

De ce ti se par penibile cererile in casatorie in locuri turistie de ex? Oricat de cliseu suna, sa fii ceruta in casatorie la Turnul Eiffel e super romantic. Nu zic ca daca nu e acolo si e in sufragerie n-are aceeasi valoare sentimentala, dar e feeling-ul ala

Care feeling? :))) Te-ai uitat prea mult la filmele siropoase.
Uite de-asta o să rămâneți voi dezamăgite în viață.

What do you usually look for on a date?

Cyra0815’s Profile PhotoCandice
I wasn't attracted to my boyfriend at all when I first met him. Yeah, he was nice, but his looks kept me from actively dating him. But as the year progressed, I noticed how genuine he was and I was amazed at the fact that he never tried to pursue me. He did ask, but after I politely declined, he backed off and respected my decision. We continued being friends. I realized how much I liked who he was as a person and ended up falling for him. This is the first time that's happened to me and I'm still with him 2 years later.
The examples you gave don't really shout "date" to me, since I do all three with friends regularly. For me, a date is a one-on-one meeting with someone with the express purpose to explore romantic attachment. If I ask someone out, I typically use the word date when I ask to avoid confusion. Before I did that, I went on too many "Oh, I thought you just meant as friends" dates that just left everyone feeling awkward.
For all the people who say that it has to be "explicitly stated" for it to be a date, I'd really like an example of how that conversation goes. In my 40s, I've gone out with my share of women and have never had to specify if it was a date or not. It's one of those unspoken understandings either way. If there's a consideration of anything romantic or sexual that could result from your time together, and if both parties are aware of that, it's a date. Not that calling it one thing or another really matters much anyway. If you're going out and spending time with people you're interested in, be happy, have fun and don't worry about putting labels on the time.
I have learned the hard way then when you are on something that you consider a date that you should mention at some time that you consider this to be a date. After I adopted this policy I found that it is very beneficial to be on the same page as the person you are out with. This keeps you from wasting time taking out women who might not have thought they were on a date and that you were just being friendly or something like that. Being explicit keeps your time from being wasted and also lets them know how you feel about them. I am usually lighthearted but honest. I like to see how things go. I don't expect to know how I feel 't about someone right away and I like to let things develop without jumping in too fast or setting up expectations. What I want in a partner is what I want in a good friend. I need someone I can have a good conversation with, someone with whom I can laugh with and share my interests, passions, and insecurities. I want someone I find interesting and who finds me interesting. Someone with a sense of humor. That's a huge one to me. I love sarcasm and honestly, asshole kind of guys make me happy. I like being around someone who is ok with being made fun of and making fun of me.

Describe the person you love?

She is Polaris, the north star, a guide for wayward souls. And I don’t mean that just in a romantic, lovey dovey sense, I mean that in she is someone to aspire to, from her total compassion and understanding for the struggles of others to her impeccable moral code and resilience when facing struggles of her own. She is fiercely intelligent and accepting and always gives more than she takes, sometimes to her own detriment. She is the type of friend that everyone needs in their lives. So when I say she is the North Star, a guide, I mean you will not go astray if you align yourself with her, you will only find home.

Do you listen to your parents’ advice?

huraib_8388’s Profile PhotoUmmayy♑
I took a risk to follow my dreams, had some great life experiences, then returned to find myself back at square one. My friends who followed the boring sensible path are all successful now and I’m not because none of my wonderful memories are relevant to now.
My parents and I have always had a tumultuous relationship that has only improved (vastly, I should add) within the last few years. I'm 20 going on 21, and life is coming at me fast. I've always been quite independent and a little rebellious, and I'm at a point where I can't figure out if I'm doing the right thing in following my own gut and doing what I like, or simply finding satisfaction in going against my parents' very traditional ideas. The bottom line is that I still care about them very much, and still take into consideration their advice. I'm currently dating a boy who is absolutely amazing to me. He's so sweet and caring and a lovesick puppy--albeit a little naive and sometimes immature when it comes to making good long term life decisions. I definitely take on a sort of maternal role sometimes. I've been brought up in a middle class family with both my parents and am headed towards a white collar career track. He's from a low income single-parent family and is training to work in the entertainment industry. I see the possibility of myself staying with him for the long term, because I don't mind being the potential breadwinner. My parents like him and think he's a nice person, but they're adamant in that he's not a good match for me because our backgrounds and career paths are so different. They believe that I need a partner to take care of me when I get old, because they don't think I'll be able to. They want long term stability for me. For what it's worth, we both have degrees from a prestigious university, so if anything, I feel he can at least find a decent job if his dreams don't pan out, and he cared about me enough to take on something more stable.
On one hand, I feel like they're coming from such a different background that I feel like they might not understand my situation. I don't think they married for love, and my dad seems to function more as my mom's keeper than her romantic partner. My mom defines her love for him as gratitude that he takes such good care of her and me. Maybe they underestimate my earning potential and my capability. On the other hand, they are adults who have lived much longer and experienced more than I have, and are certainly much wiser than I am in some respects.
For instance, they raised me religiously.Yes, I deeply regret listening to my parents. See, my parents made a lot of life decisions mistakes, that affected me and the rest of my siblings. I know they are not trying to screw us over but their mistakes are really stupid. If they only used their brains. I am still dealing with something that happened 10 years ago because of my parents.

What are your thoughts on long distance relationships?

Jyrice_music’s Profile PhotoJyrice
They usually don't work out due to disloyalty, loneliness, or can't commit to the big move to visit each other. The problem is it's hard and difficult to stay in a romantic relationship that you only communicate through a screen than in person where you can show affection and start a life together.
It is possible that one can succeed long enough to be with each other, but I've personally witnessed many fall apart.

Are you more of a 'girly girl' or a 'tomboy'?

I think I am somewhere between the two, I happy medium if you will! There are aspects of my personality which are very typically 'girly'. I enjoy dressing up despite not being too preoccupied by trends, I am very romantic, and I am a total sucker for cute shit.
And then there is the more tomboyish side of me. The side that curses a whole bunch, lovessss hanging around in comfy shirts and jeans, has a raunchy sense of humour, and could drink all her guy friends under the table. 😂

You grow up, you get older, you realise……….

alyeraza’s Profile PhotoSyed Ali Raza
It was nice day today. Myheart felt light after a long time, for a very short period. In a 20 min ride, to be precise. It rained after such a hot spell, I can't begin to tell you how hot it has been the past few days, especially in our portion. So when the first drop fell, as i exited my university gate, the first thing i thought about was how kitchen wont be hell for ammi today.
Even though the van seats made my back throb and every speedbraker threw me atleast half a foot in the air and Raza uncle was cursing every man, animal and vehicle in his way, it was all weirdly serene.
I have always hated rain because why should stupid water from the sky ruin my hair and clothes (sometimes a little makeup) and make me cold and why should i be forced to change up because of it? Weirdly enough, not today. I let it ruin my shoes and my clothes and my face (much to van walay uncle's dismay, the van's seats and mats too hehe)
Luckily, i stole my brother's headphones in the morning so I had 'dil ko karaar aya' playing in the bg, while the air blew at my face with all its might. And I let it. (?)
I wonder why I didnt shut the window today and curse at the cold wind and sharp drops under my breath like I always do.
Not putting an active effort to save yourself can be lovely sometimes. What do I call it? Submission? Or surrendering? Or just the plain old you're-overthinking-simple-situations-and basic-feelings-again-Sarah? 🤔
Anyways, then I came home and listened to a barish-exclusive song that someone suggested. It was a little too romantic for my taste but i liked it. It was nice. Yeah, it was a nice day.

Mi se pare ca cererile astea grandioase sunt mai mult facute de ochii altora in loc sa fie din bucuria cuplului respectiv. Sunt de parere ca e ceva intim, poate sa fie intim si in Paris

Do you think zombies are perhaps overused as a trope in movies / video games etc.? Do you get excited for content which features zombies? 🧟‍♂️📽🎮

TobbeAsks’s Profile Photoᛏᛟᛒᛒᚨ
I don't think overused is the right word, uninspired is maybe more accurate. Very few movie makers come up with new twists to the zombie theme, which gets boring fast. Given how many zombie movies exist, only a small few dared to do something new. 28 Days Later gave us fast zombies, I Am Legend gave us intelligent zombies, World War Z gave us the epic zombie horde, Shaun Of The Dead gave us funny zombies and Warm Bodies gave us romantic zombies. We do not speak of zombie sheep, that never happened lol. Of course I'm talking about commercial mainstream movies, there are a few low budget and virtually unknown films that did these things first.
That's why Into The Spider-Verse was such a huge hit, it dared to be different and not just another reboot of Peter Parkers story.

How did you met your husband/wife? I love romantic couple stories❤️

I “hope” to meet her like this.
I hike up a local peak to watch the sun rise. I get there before sun up.
While sitting on the peak I see a headlamp of another hiker coming up the trail. It gets closer and closer.
It is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. We say hello and chuckle about reading each others minds about watching the sunrise.
We share the sunrise together and after hiking down the trail we make a date to come back for the sunset tonight.

Why didn’t I met yet my soulmate?

Time isn't right yet. I firmly believe we are meant to meet our soulmate at the right place, at the right time. We may meet more than one soulmate. See, soulmates isn't always romantic. A soulmate can be a friend, a relative, a pet, it could even be a total stranger. I believe that's why we get along instantly with certain people. We can't get our finger on it, but we know they make us feel like we're at home.
Their presence soothes us, like a baby with a pacifier. Their dialogue intrigues us, like Shakespeare's plays. Their allure mystifies us, like a wizard performing a spell. Their kindness softens us, like a warm pillow on a King-sized bed.

Adaptează-te situației și încearcă să-ți dai interesul pentru că la un moment și ea o să obosească să tot tragă de tine chiar și pentru o conversație sau mai știu eu ce. Dacă nu poți, idk, caută și tu pe cineva care acceptă relațiile 80 - 20 =)))))))) baftă să găsești bro și succes

Have you ever had an ocean-side date?

I had just gotten into graduate school and then got into a massive fight the same night with my parents. I spent the entire night crying and frustrated and feeling like they didn't care about this huge accomplishment of mine. So that weekend, my boyfriend said he was going to surprise me and took me to my favorite restaurant, and then we wandered around a book store until he picked out one of his favorite books for me to read (something I've been wanting to do for a while). It was just so sweet to know that he knew how horrible I felt a few nights prior and wanted to make sure that the entire day was about me and my accomplishment. I love him so much :)
I just met my long distance boyfriend of 4 years for the first time a few weeks ago. I took him to the state fair, but it started pouring before we could go on a ride. We ran underneath one of the roller coasters to see if it subsided, but it didn't. He saw I was getting sad so he ran to the nearest game and spent 10 bucks trying to win me a prize. He won. He saw how happy I was and the look on his face was just so amazing that I still can't get it out of my head. We ended up running to a tent and saw the worst cover band. We sang so loud and kept joking around. He apologized for it raining and I told him it was okay because I had the time of my life. It was the best date I've ever been on. We also ate Reese's funnel cake which helped.
We hadn’t really been dating long but he told me that he had a surprise for me, I was supposed to get dressed up and he would pick me up. That’s all the information I was given. We drove all the way into the city and he ended up taking me to a restaurant on the 72nd floor of the building. The entire restaurant is floor to ceiling windows looking over the city. Absolutely stunning. I had the most amazing dinner I have ever had. Next I was told that the date was not over, but we needed to go or we would be late. We drove for a long while and finally came to this historical house on a Lake where a Symphony Orchestra was playing, the concert was Disney favorites. I was completely swept off my feet. As someone who is a very avid Disney fan as well as someone that played violin for seven years this was the most thoughtful and romantic thing anyone had ever done for me. I had no idea what I was in for and was amazed that not only did he pay attention to my interests but was thoughtful enough to put together this evening for no reason other than he wanted to. We have been together almost a year and a half now and every single day I am thankful to have found him.
The most romantic date I've ever been on was on Valentines day last year. My boyfriend planned out the whole day - breakfast in bed, dinner, a movie, gifts, etc. But literally everything went wrong. He dropped the breakfast he had made on the floor, the movie we were going to see was sold out, and the gift he was going to get me I bought for myself like two days before.

What does comfort mean to you?

fabyfateesha’s Profile PhotoFaby Fateesha
Yk when you’re with “that” person and you feel happy and calm as fuck and even if you’re having trouble with something or someone yet it feels as if it’s not that big of a deal and what matters in that moment is the moment with “that” person. And no its not in a romantic lovey dovey way, its in a comforting way.
Cause in that moment? Personally I feel acknowledged and so damn collected.
It’s like a free zone for my thoughts, my problems and everything negative or positive that resides in me.
