I am missing Fiance today and started googling love qoutes,and this one came up. I have never liked this one. I understand the premise of the quote but I just feel it’s not the most romantic quote. I actually feel the opposite, I know Fiance knows I love him unconditionally but when I’m a brat or throw a fit and realize later I feel the need to apologize to him. I know he ‘knows’ it but I feel he deserves to hear me own up to my actions and apologize. So for me this quote just doesn’t cut it, am I alone in this?

No. We all have things to apologize for!

No, I’m with you. Love means taking extra care to say you’re sorry

@ShutterbugCait: That was a line someone said in a book (which was written by a male). Completely inaccurate statement.

@nycsa: Love Story (for those who never read it)

I really dislike that quote as well. Love means trying to avoid doing things you’d need to apologize for, for understanding when your partner does mess up (where this quote is supposed to fit, I guess), and for humbling yourself to be sure to express your apologies to the one you love.
I think that unless you include the before and after, the quote just sounds like a free pass to be an A-hole because “partner knows I love them and didn’t mean it.” Meh, show it instead :0)

I disagree with the quote – in fact it means being more sensitive when your in the wrong to apologize.

It is a stupid quote from a stupid movie.
There, I said it.

@MrsOliveBird: That’s my thing, it is stupid and I cannot figure out how it keeps appearing on the most romantic quotes lists.

@ShutterbugCait: I also don’t like this quote. I think love makes you want to say your sorry, love should make you want to be a better person. 🙂

I feel like love means saying sorry more, because you take the time to apologize when you hurt someone you love, intentional or not. And we all hurt the people we love, because we’re human.

I so agree with you. When I read the thread title, I immediately thought, “Um, no.” Fiance and I got in an argument last night, and we both apologized for our roles in it. I agree with some of the previous posters – love makes you want to be a better person, so you may be more inclined to apologize when you hurt the one you love.
