    I read a lot of topics about everyone's requirements for dating and relationships. However, there is little discussion on what you'd be willing to sacrifice for someone else.

    So... tell us. I'm still thinking about this... I'll chime in later...

    I gave up a job opportunity, but was given an even better one later that didn't call for me to move away from my partner and home. I also gave up "playing the field" after coming out and meeting my now partner, but looking back and at some of my friends that are still doing that I don't think I missed much. I was also willing to give up my relationship with my family when they couldn't accept me or my partners relationship, but over time they've come to terms and we ALL have a very open and loving and honestly "normal" family.

    While those are things I can look at as sacrifices, I really think they were more like tests of what and who I wanted out of life. I made my choices and am happy with them.

    In my opinion, you shouldn't have to give up much for love. But sometimes, you have to be willing to go the extra mile to get what you want. If you're willing to go the extra mile for someone and you know it won't blow up in your face if you go further, there's really nothing to lose and much to gain.

    Honestly, I don't know at this moment.

    The same time I met a really cool guy, an amazing job opportunity came up. I took the job, but still getting to the know the guy albeit casually.

    lol this is much too vague for a definitive answer, so we'll have to answer given our current state of existence.

    We're in our 50s, have been together nearly 21 years monogamously and are crazy in love.

    So........I'd die for Bill and he for me.

    I would be willing to sacrifice my Cuisinart blender, I really have no use for it anyway. But am I accepting of love, absolutely.

    Life. I'd sacrifice my own life for the man I love, for my family, even my dog, frankly. I'd sacrifice my life for my closest and dearest friends and my ex lovers.

    Love is worth nothing if not everything. Quantifying it or qualifying it is, frankly, proof that it isn't love.

    All, or nothing.

    I knew someone would quote Meatloaf. Was the first thing I thought.

    I'd give up my city... move somewhere.

    Life!!

    Easy, thats a common theme in the animal kingdom and we are programmed to be willing to sacrifice ourselves for the lives of loved ones... whether you believe in a religion or science... its visible everywhere and requires no logical explanation.. insect workers persistently commit suicide for their queens and their co-workers.... soldiers sacrifice their lives for their loved ones back home, and parents will sacrifice themselves without a moments thinking for their children's.. it's an evolutionary trait to put the good of the group before the good of oneself

    I'd sacrifice quite a lot......................of people. Probably with an obsidian blade. What can I say, I'm a traditionalist.

    I don't know that the question can really be answered accurately unless you are there in the moment faced with the decision. I'd like to think love is more about compromise than it is giving up something to have that love. It would probably depend on so many factors at any given time. I don't think there is much I wouldn't give up for love, but it depends who it is and why I have to give it up for them.

    I'd be willing to sacrifice everything but my values, dignity or family.

    I'm not sacrificing for love right now. I have in the past, but now ... I can't.

    There is way too much going for me right now.

    i must agree with this. if u love someone they come first their safety, well being, and most of all heart. and the craziest thing is i would sacrifice tackle football and play flag so we could play together.
