The saying goes:
"It is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all."

Do you believe this to be true?

When I hear this question it makes me think of my son that I lost. I guess I wouldn't take back the short time we had with him, so in that instance, yes. I'm glad I had him, even if he didn't stay with us.

When I think about it in context with ex partners it's more complicated. If I could just have gotten my daughter without him then I wouldn't have had to water time LOL
From all the trauma I went through, looking back now.
It was NOT worth it....except for my wonderful sons.

So I guess ONLY for having my boys.
Every case is individual. For some people it may have been better, for others not. If the relationship was a good one, then yes, it is better to have loved and lost. If the relationship was fraught, then no.
I don't believe it.

Not when it comes to romantic love anyway. And not when it ends as a result of choice.

It depends. If it a romantic relationship then you have to weigh your options. If it is evident that the person is going to be trouble then you will have to count if its really worth getting involved with someone like that. Another situation will be getting involved with a married man/woman.
