How can loving be easier

I have one line of a song that I don’t know in my head:

“loving you is easier…”

I don’t really care to know the name of the song, or how easy it is to find lyrics on the web, I just want to know your opinions on the following. Can something (or the lack thereof) make loving someone easier?

My balding head may be naive, but love seems to be an unconditional sort of thing. Once rooted, it pretty much has to be ripped out to go away.

I believe true love has to have certain requirements, just like any other living thing. Without getting too Hallmark, I’ll just say that if some of these things are missing (respect, trust, “communtion of minds”), then it makes it easier for them lovin’ feeling to fade.

And I gotta say, that trust is an essentail nutrient for true love.

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

The probable song you’re thinking of is “Loving Her Was Easier” by Kris Kristofferson, covered by a bunch of folk-rock-wannabes over the years. The basic plot of the song is a wistful/nostalgic look back at a romance that bloomed and faded, describing the romance and concluding each verse with “Loving her was easier than anything I’ll ever do again.”

Insightful: Connecting on many different levels.

Practical: Sharing common experiences and backgrounds.

Imaginative: The first girl you ever kissed.

Truthful: Oral sex.

Chief - at least someone had the nerve to admit it. :wink:

Well, Fleetwood Mac said that “you make loving fun,” and every time I had a date with a girl who was “easier” I generally had fun and loved it…

Yer pal,

I think the song you’re thinking of is “loving you is easy 'cuz you’re beautiful.” It’s the one that was in a Burger King commercial maybe a year age - it was also sung by John Stamos’s older brother on a South Park episode. It’s the one where the next line goes “doot doot n doo doo” followed by a really high-pitched scream.

There’s also the song “Easy to Love” from the Broadway musical “Anything Goes.”

To answer the question, though, yes, it can be easier to love someone… when they start cleaning up after themselves!!! Thank you.

Sucks to your assmar.

Hey beefymeg, do ya think that song is what made Mariah Carrie think “gosh, screeching would be a great way to sell records! Along with doing my label’s record producer, that is.”

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

All things being equal, all things are never equal.

If you think about it, the phrase “unconditional love” makes no sense. There must be something about the person that makes her/him loveable. I would not want someone (as a friend/lover/soulmate) to love me totally without conditions. I would have to assume she/he could just as easily fall in love with any prick/jerk/asshole that happened to come down the pike.

TennHippie, you’re thinking too much.

      • Mariah Carey does tend to rip a song to shreds, but , , , (sigh), , ,I do kinda like to listen anyway. Must be that testosterone acting up again. - I do tend to prefer listening to female singers rather than male, but I assume that’s because I’m a guy. - MC

I have to agree with you, MC. If I’m watching the Spice Girls or Mariah or Britany on TV, and I mute the volume, they’re not half bad at all.
