ONE ON ONE : Who would survive the verdict?

A Brooklyn man sued the website www.match.com for inflicting “humiliation and disappointment” on lonely hearts “who feel rejected when their e-mails get no reply.” McGinn alleges that the website dangles phony date baits by posting profiles of people who no longer subscribe to it.

As a result, singles have been “defrauded” of millions of dollars and countless hours spent sending heartfelt missives in vain, the 37-year-old says.

This court case made me imagine, what if love matters went to court every now and then and guilty lovers served punishments! How much damages would be paid for all the reckless mistakes we commit?

There are various crimes world wide though those related to love are never given priority.

It’s believed that it’s all fair in love and war. However much a lover breaks your heart; you’ll still have the guts of picking yourself up and continue with the chase.

Let’s let go of the thought of how much damages a bad lover would pay and concentrate on the grave mistakes committed in love though many don’t even notice them!

Comparing your lover! It’s mainly a guy thing to tell their girlfriends how pretty this or that girl is. At times, they complain about their booty in comparison to other girls who they think have something solid.

As for girls, they will keep comparing their new guy with the ex, only to leave lovers wondering why they never stayed in their former relationship if it was that good!

Concentrating on a phone while out on a date is yet another grave crime that needs punishment. A partner will plainly talk on phone for an hour or two when you are helplessly waiting!

People, who are out with intentions of knowing each other more, end up arguing about phone calls.

Meanwhile, some girls will even beep in the middle of a conversation just to prove a point that they have a whole lot of guys on their case!

Unnecessary pride is yet another. For heaven’s sake, it is not fair to treat your better half the way you treat all strangers out there. However, many men think it’s stylish to stick to all those nagging principles!

He will yell at you over a simple mistake, and he always reminds you about respecting him yet he doesn’t respect you one bit.

And when it gets to the extremes, he will smartly walk out on you expecting you to follow him especially that you know his hot temper!

Parking lovers for long also deserves a penalty. This happens all the time. You are walking on the street and your girlfriend/boyfriend bumps into an old classmate, a colleague at work or an ex-neighbour!

They suddenly start talking, and it seems like there is much to discuss. Your lover ends up forgetting that he was with someone in the first place

Selfishness is another one. A partner will want you to give all you can while he gives nothing in return! You’ll cook for him, be by his side all day, tell him your heart and what do you get in return for being mother Theresa! Assurances that you don’t care enough!

It’s basically the guys who want a princely treat, yet they offer peasant treats to their fair half!

Being extremely confident is also a pathetic crime. In love, many think they are God’s gifts to the lovers!

Because of that infatuation, they take their lovers for granted until they lose them! And when they are out to the wolves, they realize they would never have better ones and end up regretting their whole lives!

And since love is the basis of a family and a good family produces good and disciplined people, crimes of love should be reported and damages paid. This will save us big time players, proud lovers and cheats anyway.
