    Love builds on one another. If anything sacrifice is for mis-matches and control freaks.

    yes love means sacrifice because not all the time you will get what you want you must sacrifice something or someone just to get what you want and what you need..

    i agree wid u but sumtimes in real life people sacrifice their own love silently so their lover can live happily wid their first love.

    I think there are some things you have to sacrifice, but you don't have to sacrifice everything.

    Love to me is devotion to that special someone. Sacrifice and compromise sound too much like a business deal going down.

    i wouldn't call it a sacrifice, it is more of a compromise at times, and something i expect to do no matter if it is love or just a friendship, it's just part of life to me.

    Life means sacrifice. or rather compromise. every good relationship needs it. before you're in a serious relationship its good to know what things you are willing to compromise and what things you arent. but marriage demands that two different people must come to a compromise at some point or you cant be together. if you want your way and they want their way, what else can be done but one person must give. I know certain things about myself, such as, i dont stand for violence. no way would i be with someone violent. however, i also dont like pda but because i love my husband, i allow us to publicly show affection every now and then, because it makes him happy. things like that are a sacrifice, and its up to the individual to decide what they will give and what they wont. but saying you wont sacrifice anything, ever, will lead to short unhappy relationships, in my opinion.

    Love isn't sacrifice. Love just is. And if there is a sacrifice, then you know it isn't love.

    Two people are never going to agree on everything.Sometimes that may be to sacrifice what you may want to do to make your other happy.

    It is sometimes giving up self, for anothers well being and desires because you love them and no two people are so alike they always think the same ways, it should be give and take, out of love not obligation though.

    Sometimes. But it also means respect, compromise, putting someone elses needs before your own, mutual adoration, working together as a team instead of one side sacrificing all the time. It is a give and take relationship (or at least should be)

    There isn't really a simple yes/no answer to this question. It depends on the context.

    In consideration of an individual in relationship to another love can and often does include sacrifice. One situation that come to mind are relationships in which one person is mentally ill. That can be a sacrifice of your time and money in a perhaps largely one sided friendship.

    Someone offered the unbalanced definition of a love that has nothing to do with give and take but is only about trust and lowering your interpersonal defenses. A closer look reveals this as a similar give and take dynamic-just on a different basis that's purely communicative*!

    A whole definition of love would need to include both how an individual loves itself (takes care of itself physically and mentally) and how an individual relates to others both objectively (work and sacrifice) and subjectively (trust, compassion, honesty).

    * The comment about love being only emotional vulnerability and nothing else makes me think of how love is described in popular music today. "Every day your gone I die a little bit more on the inside" (paraphrase), "teach me wrong from right." It's love with mommy issues! Modern man is such a pathetic, domesticated creature but that's another story and this tangent is already too long.

    When you are truly in love you are willing to make sacrifices for the other person. It could be as big as dying for them or a small sacrifice like leaving the last glass of milk in the carton for them. You are also sacrificing your heart by laying it on the line.

    Love does not necessarily mean sacrifice, but it certainly is easier to sacrifice for someone you love. The thing is, when you really love someone, it doesn't always feel like a sacrifice when you go out of the way for your loved one.
    love necessarily sacrifice easier sacrifice love love feel sacrifice loved

    when you love someone....anything you do for them shouldn't be a sacrifice. of course compromise is a must...but doing something for someone you love is NEVER a sacrifice. you do it b/c you love them...duhh. o.O

    Absolutely. I'd die for love and ones I love, if that's not a sacrifice I don't know what is. It means putting your love's wishes and desires ahead of yours...but it's a sweet sacrifice.

    Since I'm single, for me, NO. IF married, or in a deep relationship, then yes, some sacrifice happens.

    I don't think Compromise necessarily means Sacrifice. You can always get what you _need_ in a compromise.

    love isn't sacrifice. love is giving someone the power to break your heart and trusting them not to!

    So you'd be in a romantic relationship with a guy that doesn't bathe or work but is willing to let you cry into his shoulder as long as he can reciprocate?

    Yes, it can. If you truly love, I doubt you would consider what you do a sacrifice, even if someone else might see it that way.

    Unconditional love, sure, I think it means a sort of sacrifice of your emotions. Like when your kids do something wrong and you just want to beat them down because it makes you so angry but you don’t because you love them and you forgive them and try to show them a better path to it all. So, yea, I think you give up some emotional responses when you commit to loving someone.

    Yes. Anything in life that is worth having is going to coast an amount of sacrifice. And what better to have love and lose something else that would seem so trivial?

    "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son." There's no greater sacrifice..... god loved world begotten son greater sacrifice
