The Things We Do For Love
There are huge things people do for love, even though it might not be the best decision. Love can overshadow rationality, which is why there’s no talking a love sick woman/man out of doing something. When you put your partner before all else, drastic moves will be made. Here are some of the craziest things people do for love:
1- Becoming Her Chauffeur
Men like to be seen as useful, and one way we curry favor with the one we like is by offering her rides. It starts small, like going to pick her up when she’s having dinner at our place — we’ll cross downtown just to get her. This is soon followed by trips to IKEA, because she needs 200 tea lights. Finally, when she has to leave town to visit her parents, we come up with a reason why we’re headed in the same direction, just so we can spend a few hours in a car with her.
2- Crashing Her Yoga Class
Men think that the way to a woman’s heart is through feigning an interest in her hobbies. She says she loves going to yoga and we say we’ve always wanted to try it. The next thing we know, we’re in shorts trying to contort our body into positions that God never intended for us to achieve.
3- Letting Women Get Us into Fights
It all goes back to the chest-thumping. When we’re trying to catch the attention of a girl, we can never come off as a wimp. Keep in mind: That doesn’t mean we pick a fight with the first guy we see. It means that if there’s a group of rowdy teenagers sitting in front of us at the movies, it’s up to the man to smack one in the back of the head and tell them to shut their mouths. Of course, this means we’ll likely get jumped in the parking lot and beaten with bicycle chains, but we cross that bridge when we get there.
4- Relocating Our Entire Lives
Nothing is worse than when we meet a girl we like — a girl we could have something with — only to find out she’s leaving town in four weeks. Some men cut their losses right there, while the brave ones make travel plans. We forsake our careers to pick up and follow that woman. Why? Because love is the greatest pension plan of all.
5- Hanging Out with Her Ex
Every man has dated a girl that has somehow managed to stay friends with her ex. At first she calls him her friend: “I was talking to my friend, Dan, and blah, blah, blah.” But something about her tone of voice tells us that farmer Dan once tilled the field we’re now working to sow. Soon enough, we’ll meet Dan, and every man in this situation has a decision to make: Do we blow him off or act like we’re happy to see his smug face? Smart men treat Dan like a buddy. They pretend they’re not at all threatened or jealous over her shared past with Dan because you know who used to be jealous about that kind of thing? Dan.
6- Buying Her a Big-Ticket Item
Men who aren’t so good with the words let their wallets do the talking. We’re all too happy to empty our wallets and drop a wad on some flashy gift, like a diamond necklace or a motorcycle, ’cause that’s how we roll. We roll on the back of our new girlfriend’s hog, which we bought for her. Suck it, Dan.
7- Going into Debt
She invites us to her cousin’s wedding before the nature of our relationship has even been established. It’s a trial by fire, and we want to make the groomsmen look like chumps. That’s why we drop $1,000 on a new suit. The plan is to look like Cary Grant, while best man looks like some teenager dressed in his daddy’s suit.
8- Becoming a Vegetarian
The craziest thing a man will do to impress a pretty lady is to give up meat. That means no roast beef, no steak, and no ribs. In fact, making the decision to date a vegetarian in the first place is crazy, because we become vegetarians by default. Any meals we eat at home from that point on are necessarily free of flesh. And men need our flesh!
- Quit their job
Some people quit their jobs in order to raise children. Some people leave their job because their man is willing to take on all financial responsibility. Either way, quitting your job is a major move. You have to make sure that it’s the right decision before you put in your two weeks notice. Yet, people quit their job for love.
- Shave Your Head
It was my husband who did a crazy thing for love. When I was having chemotherapy for breast cancer, my husband shaved his head. It wasn’t until we went out together after he had done it that I realized how much the gesture meant to me. It made my baldness seem more normal during a very abnormal time in my life.

- Change Yourself
My wife is the most amazing person I have ever met, so I was willing to change some of my stubborn ways to be a man and start a family. People don’t talk about these things often enough — we get caught up in the “meant to be” or “love at first sight” stuff that rarely happens. The bottom line is that if you find someone you absolutely love, change is easy. No one who knew me thought I would ever marry. The fact that it has happened is itself the craziest thing, and the best.

- Giving It All Up
British King Edward VIII had been on the throne for less than one year when he abdicated in 1936 for the sake of his lover, twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. The then-42-year-old’s desire to marry a woman who had two living ex-husbands threatened to cause a crisis in the UK.

13- Husband and Wife Get Surgery to Look Like Each Other
We’ve all known a couple that’s so in love that they finish each other’s sentences or take on each other’s mannerisms. Some lovey-dovey couples are so in sync that they even start physically looking alike after a while. But when husband and wife Neil and Jacqueline Megson started the look-alike phase of their courtship, it was more than just a case of buying a couple of wacky matching sweaters. They went for a more permanent change — through the magic of plastic surgery.
Anyway, Neil and Jacqueline loved each other so much that they felt as if they were the same person. So why not physically alter their appearances to look like they were twins who went by one name — Genesis Breyer P-Orridge? This involved getting matching boob jobs, and after that, it was eye and nose jobs, then cheek and chin implants, followed by lip plumping and liposuction. There was even a tattooed beauty mark thrown in there, though whose was natural and whose was a tat is probably irrelevant at this point. All told, the pair received more than $200,000 worth of plastic surgery, all for this:

14- Man and Wife Live Like Cavemen, for Love
Fifty years ago, Liu Guojiang was a 19-year-old Chinese kid who fell in love. But to the dismay of his family and the delight of local gossips, the object of Liu’s affections was Xu Zhaoqing, a widowed woman who was 10 years older than he was. In other words, a cougar. Back in those days, there was only one thing to do when you fell in love with a cougar: suicide by wrestling an actual cougar imported from the Americas. Liu and Xu decided to run away to a cave on the side of a mountain instead. And they lived there for 50 years.
You’re probably thinking, “Eh … so they lived in a cave. So did my ancestors. How bad could it be?” Deliberately leaving behind plumbing, electricity and, for the most part, food to be with the one you love is pretty dramatic. In the beginning, Xu and Liu had nothing but roots, grasses and sex juice to sustain them.
Liu even managed to bring some crude versions of big city amenities to the couple’s new home. Like stairs. In order to help his wife get around the mountain, Liu hand-carved 6,000steps into the side of the mountain, with nothing more than a chisel and his devotion to his wife to chip them. Now don’t you feel stupid for breaking up with your girlfriend over who was the best Doctor in Doctor Who?
