    The Love School- utter genius?

    The 'Love School' magazine really caught my attention whilst on the train travelling back home- a school teaching on how to love someone... is this pure genius or just bonkers? At first I thought the latter however a good read of this magazine significantly altered my perception. The Love School website used a great example: 'would you get behind the wheel of a car and head down to the motorway if you never had a driving lesson?'- obviously not. They believe that when it comes to love, many of us jump in head first without learning what it takes to make a relationship work. Is this a great theory as to why many of us end up crashing?

    'You can't help who you fall in love with; you can't control who you like. It's something that just happens and when that feeling comes, the common advice is to follow your heart?'- The Love School thinks NOT. The article reiterates that 'love is not felt' it is more about getting to know the other person and seeing their flaws in a positive way. Surely we can see it like this- when we start something (ie careers, courses or employment schemes) we believe that we will enjoy it, however when we become more knowledgeable, we learn to either love or hate our choices. It's the same with love... right?

    5 Things to do if you are single- The Love School's advice:

    1. Stop comparing- you are who you are.
    2. Invest in yourself- if you want to be a good catch you need to be one.
    3. Like someone your mind approves of-choose someone whose characteristics are compatible with yours. If they fail the test of intelligence forbid your heart.
    4. I would go up to that person using my mind and not my heart.
    5. Get educated about love.

    But is this strategically possible? could over thinking things in fact ruin our chances in finding love?After all opposites do attract.

    The Love School also advises in many areas ie: betrayal, marriage, living with difficult people, and much more.

    So what do you all think- is 'The Love School' a genius idea? Comment below.

    3. Hi
      I love this post!! I went to the Love School last year in Finsbury Park and it was AMAZING!!!

      You should definitely come along to the one this Sunday at the Wembley Arena! It will be even more amazing as the lessons are fun and educational for everyone!

      My name is Tillyah and today I started a competition on my blog for one of the tickets for this amazing event!!

      Have a read...


      Have a fab evening!!

    4. Great Post.

      I like the way you was open minded in critiquing the concept of the Love School

      I believe the example of driving a car without taking lessons illustrates their point perfectly.

      I think we all need to learn how to LOVE, LOVE is a decision. We live in a world where LOVE is seen as an emotion, which i growing colder and colder with each day.

    5. I think if someone else gave you advice on how you're supposed to love, you might over think things and mess it all up. I understand their comparison to learning to drive, but that's something that really needs to be taught. I think some people need lessons in how to be decent and what love actually means. Driving is something with certain rules that are the same for everyone, love doesn't work like this, people love for different reasons and show it in different ways.

    6. Wembley Arena was packed for the Pove School. Wembley Officials thought we could not do it but we did. The VYG, The sing-offs, the Love School itself was amazing. Renato and Chris have announced that they will extend their stay in the UK. For the next 7 Sundays they announced that they will appear at the world famous Rainbow Theatre, Finsbury Park, London starting Sunday 29th September at 10am. I definitely will be there after today's Love School.

      1. That's fantastic!!! I'm so glad that you had an amazing time. I NEED to get tickets.

    7. The event was amaaaazing, I learnt so much and laughed as well. The performances were incredible and the VYG was really good, I enjoyed myself and my family as well. We had a great time. I look forward to go this Sunday 29th September to learn the 7 steps to rebuild myself and learn even more.
