Hey people I wanted to ask all guys/girls if you could live without being loved not having anyone care for you and how you would feel if that was the case? Its just I've always wondered if love and affection really helps people in every day life and how it would change you or mentally change you never having love affection a bond or friendship or that someone you trust etc...

Humans cannot survive (emotionally or physically) without love. It is a necessity, like air and food and water. It just takes a bit longer to feel the effects.
From an article on baby orphans:

In humans, the immune system seems to be profoundly affected, making these children especially vulnerable to all types of disease -- probably because not being nurtured is extremely stressful and high levels of stress hormones can turn off the immune system. (That's why corticosteroids-- essentially stress hormones -- are often used to treat auto-immune diseases where too much immune response is the problem).

In fact, "failure to thrive" in human infants has been shown to result from lack of individualized, nurturing, physically affectionate parental care, whether in an orphanage or due to extreme parental neglect. Babies' brains expect that they will experience nearly constant physical touch, rocking and cuddling: without it, they just don't grow. And without receiving kind empathetic care, they are less likely to behave that way towards others as they get older.

Orphanages simply cannot provide the levels of intensive individual care that infants need to generate enough growth hormone and empathy. Incidentally, this is why babies raised in orphanages are almost always physically smaller and have smaller heads and brains than those raised with even not-so-great parents.

I could probably live without being loved but I would be very miserable.

We all need positive human interaction and love. Imagine being stranded on a deserted island for years...people would literally go crazy.

Were always looking for it when we dont have it, the timings not right, your too romantic, aggressive or your interested in someone thats interested in someone else.
The answer is no however im learning how to do it now.Some enjoy being alone,perhaps a share issue or maybe you become acustom to it and it becomes your life and maybe you can never go back again. Yes i believe love is to share your life and laugh at the bloopers,give opinions,and a smile that shows happiness.Intimacy is the gift of pleasure to celebrate the union and create the bond.I know from experience that it changes you,I had met someone a time ago and we clicked right off and i began to witness joy and and a warm glow when together and it made my day just to witness it.Timing and other circumstances got in the way and it fizzled.It appears some people have issues with processing emotions and can turn them on as fast as turning them off.What to do about it? as much as i dont wanto due to group drama,have fun playing music and see how many groopies show up....hehehe.

Learn to love yourself, and let yourself love others. Learn to love life, nature, song, and laughter. Do not expect it to be returned, however, if you remain positive, chances are it will probably be returned.
