Anything for love?

Any good romantic will tell you that they'd do "anything for love". The way I understand it, it means "I'll be there for you because I love you, and I'll do everything in my power to sustain our relationship". The song "I'd Do Anything for Love" by Meat Loaf is sappy and perhaps not my favorite, but it tends to be the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the phrase "anything for love".

My question is - do we really do anything for love? The reason why I have been thinking about love (and perhaps also feeling blue) is that around this time of the year (but a couple of years ago) my heart was broken. And then the phrase "anything for love" became empty and meaningless. So much for all that 'love'.

Not one to be jaded, I've poured myself into strong friendships and relationships, both with my family and with other people. So, the question is - do we really do anything for love? Or are there limits? What are yours?

anything for love...but I won't do that....

that's the second part of that line, so i think there are limits. we all have a limit even if it takes 20 years to find it out; but i think for most people is easy to get lost in "love", forget who you are, what you are, and for some weird reason accept less than we deserve.... is that "anything for love"..... i think, but maybe it's more like anything not to be lonely? anything so he/she sees i love him/her? sooo simple and sooo complicated.
