The crazies we do for love

Posted by Ria, 15 May 09

A 29-year-old mother strangled her 7-year-old daughter in 2004 and threw her body in the river so she can win the love of her husband who would not accept the child because she was not his biologically. Unlucky for her she got arrested after committing the crime and the man she sacrificed her daughter for has NEVER visited her in jail.

People have killed, penises have been cut, gifts have been bought, others have tolerated abuse, and let’s not forget the final act of desperation: resorting to black magic. The above shows the lengths people are willing to go in order to get the person they love to commit, date or marry them. Most of the things people do to tilt another’s affection in their favor are very disturbing.

Question is: Are the sacrifices people make worth it? What is the craziest thing you or people you know have ever done just to hold on to the one you are obsessed with love?

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

    Quite a tale NOPLAYER and your friend is not the first nor sadly the last to tell it. I know of a lot of similar stories. When are people going to realize that this stuff happens and it happens to them and theirs? Children have no reason to make this kind of stuff up. Sure it happens and usually when adults are leading the way. However, if your 16-year old (or even younger) tells you of a situation like NOPLAYER describes you'd best be believing it. Take your child at face value and find out differently. If you are living with a child molester or a cheater of any kind, that's not a chance to happy. It's a recipe for disaster.

    In the 11th grade I dated a girl whose mother put her out of the house after she complained of her mother's boyfriend always sexually flirting with her. The guy lived with them, the mother worked nights and he'd be at home alone with her at night. She told me one night he caught her coming out of the bathroom and forced her into her bedroom to rape her but when a her girlfriend knocked on her bedroom window and called out her name he got off of her. She told her mother what happened and the mother accused her of teasing him and throwing herself at him and the mother said, " he didn't try nothing with you, you're just mad that he wouldn't screw you and now trying to turn me against him and have me put him out"! Her mother told her that she (her own daughter)had to go because she f@*king up her chance to have a man and be happy for once in her life. I think this is one an example of a sick and twisted kind of love and you have to see these kinds of people as the SICK INDIVIDUALS they are?

    Camilla79 hit the nail on the head!!!!! Whomever would go to such extremes in the name of love couldn't realistically consider it love. I would define it as obsession and people that would go to such great lengths should seek medical attention. Don't get me wrong...on some level I feel the average person may at times go beyond a point to obtain love. Those that are grounded in reality will at one point realize...is the love of a particular person really worth risking it all for? We all have have that thing in the pit of or stomachs that tell us when something isn't right. Embrace the feeling...accept it and move on.

    But thats not love is it. Love will never expect you to do such a thing.

    Black magic isn't even close to the final act of desperation! The woman mentioned in the article was way closer. So was Lorena Bobbitt (ooh! I don't even like to think of her). Sadly the final act is too often the final act. My crazies are mild by comparison. Once I showed up on an ex's doorstep on Valentine's Day with roses and a valentine (She didn't take me back then but did later and then left again for the [fiftieth and] final time). Once I moved back East from California to return to a woman who was pregnant, encouraged by her sweet talk. When I got there she wasn't happy to see me. But she wasn't pregnant either. Turned out to be a win/win. Sacrifices are worth it. Craziness isn't. I should have know better, did know better, in both those instances and several others like them. I'm getting better. I know today that if my usual sweetness and charm isn't enough, it isn't enough. No amount of amulets or incantations is going to make that woman right for me. I'm cool just the way I am. If I have to resort to pleading or over-gifting or (way closer to the final act of desperation) helping her move to win back someone who is clearly gone, I'm wasting my pleas, dough and/or time (and back). Was I really ever that guy? Yup! I hope I'm not again.

    I was in love with a guy who was jealous of my male friends, wanted me all to himself. I cut of my friendships because I thought it would make everything alright. I even tattooed his name on my ankle (it was his nickname and I never told anyone) even though I knew better. We were going to get married. He taught me that valuable lesson of not being able to change someone. Needless to say, he still was insecure and still had something to complain about. I had enough of the clingyness, dropped his ass, dated my first white guy (he was very pissed) and PROMPTLY covered up that tattoo. Only he & I ever knew it was there and 8 years later he's still chasing me. Everytime he sees me, he looks at my ankle and take a big sigh of regret.

    I think that its terrible that people do such horrible things. These people are seriously disturbed and I dont think they do these things out of love, theyre selfish and obsessed. How is someone who murders their child capable of love? Thats why people really need to be really careful and think before they mess around with somebody's emotions.
