Most of the time when we say love is blind, what we are actually mean is lust is blind or selfishness is blind. Yes, our selfishness and lust blinds us. A selfish and lustful person only sees himself. The person of his obsession is just an object for personal gratification. Yes, lust is blind. Imagine a man walking around and looking at a mirror at the same time. He does not see his surroundings, only himself. To lose sight of everything except yourself is blindness indeed.

Shakespeare wrote in The Merchant of Venice that love is blind and lovers cannot see. Modern-day research supports the view that the blindness of love is not just a figurative matter. A research study in 2004 by University College London found that feelings of love suppressed the activity of the areas of the brain that control critical thought.

Love is NOT blind. Love belongs to the heart, mind has no business to be there. But people who live in mind alone find it difficult when they fall in love... and they ESCAPE saying that love is blind, because the mind, which is their only faculty, fails in love. Love has its own eyes and sees much, much more than mind can ever hope to see!
Lust is greed in passion. Yes, lust is BLIND... as all greed is.

Love is wider in sense and meaning, other name is worship, love does not mean only to opposite sex only, it denotes to God, nature, brother, sister so on.......... wide amplitude. On the contrary lust has narrow field. Though blindness applies to both but on different context and views. Love can change the world.
