Love and rejection

The picture that states 'Everyone says love hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Everyone confuse these things with love, but in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.'

But think about it. It's because of the existence of love that people will get lonely,  get rejected. If you do not know love, then there is no way to compare and contrast, because you will never know something if you have no experience of. Isn't it?

I feel that people think that love is great because love have been too romanticised by the various media. You see it everywhere; movies, dramas, books etc. But these all have the mainstream definition of love. People define love differently, and I don't think that you can just classify love into one category and dump all the examples together. I know I'm adopting the socratic method here but I feel irritated when people make such a absolute statement. If person A likes person B, and person B likes person C, and person B and C got together, can we really say that love covers up all the pain? Aren't we overlooking something? So doesn't it mean that someone will have to sacrifice in order to ensure the happiness of the other 2? What if person A refuses to let go?

It's more complicated than just saying that 'I like you and you like me. Let's get married and be happy forever.' Just like how everything is not what it seems to be.
