I Don’t Have To Say I’m Sorry…’Cause I Love You?

August 9, 2011

Love means never having to say you're sorry.

Ah, Love Story. We all loved that movie. We all cried. Hard. And the most famous line…we all know it. And we all love it. When Ryan O’Neal, or should I call him Oliver Barrett? Or maybe just preppy apologizes and Jenny, played by a very hot, young, Ali MacGraw says, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”
Yes! Yes! We all cheered and smiled through our tears and our swollen eyes. That is what love means.


Um, clearly the person who wrote that line has never actually been in love. Or in a relationship for that matter. Because love doesn’t mean that. Let’s see how we would apply that to everyday living:
“I don’t understand. You hurt me. Why can’t you just say sorry?”
“Because I love you?”
Folks, don’t try this at home. You heard it here first.

I find with love, you have to say sorry more than usual. It’s a friggin’ sorry marathon. When are you more inclined to say sorry than when you actually care about someone and love them? And when you are in an actual relationship…sometimes…it can be one big sorry extravaganza. Not always. But sometimes.
Just sayin’.

    I think you just misunderstood. I think the line is saying that love means you’ll never have to call the person you’re with a sorry person. ;-p

    Amen, sister. I think “I’m sorry” is a very important part of most relationships. If done well, it can show that you really do love the person and are sorry if you ever hurt them – whether you intended to or not!
