Barber's paradox is one of the most famous paradoxes in mathematics. Given by Bertrand Russell.
It states that in a village - everyone either shave themselves or go to a barber. If there is only one barber in that village - What will the barber do?

 - If he shaves himself, he shouldn't go to a barber (himself).
 - If he goes to a barber (himself) he shouldn't shave himself.

  ..it has no solution !

Similarly...
if a guy loves a girl ... and He cares for nothing but her happiness.
..but She doesn't like him loving her.  (suppose they are good friends like..
here :P)
so.. what he will say to make her happy? -
if he says - "I love you". That contadicts his assumption of making her happy. because she doesn't like him saying this.
if he says - "I don't love you." he will contradict himself :)
All He can do is remain silent. Because there is no solution :P

This is pure random thought, I don't know if that can happen in real life. May be its too theoretical :)
