Love is the greatest gift God ever gave man. Love is not wanting to go anywhere without her. Love is not caring what other people think about the two of you. Love is when you feel depressed and sickly when you're not with her. You feel like your life has no meaning or purpose without her. And that if she wasn't holding your hand you would float away to heaven from where she came. Love is caring for her physically and emotionally. It's telling her everyday, anytime, anywhere, anyhow, for no just reason that you love her. Love is telling her u want to spend the rest of your life with her. Love is wanting to marry her even tho ya'll haven't been dating that long. That you would do anything and everything for her. It's the feeling that you would give up everything just to see her smile or look into her beautiful eyes or hear her soft, soothing voice. Love is pure happiness. Love is the feeling you get when all you have to do is think of her and it brings a smile to your face and a yourning to your heart. Love is not being able to think about nething but her. Love is having the sweetest dreams about her and waking up with a smile on ur face. Love is an overwelming feeling of pure bliss when the 2 of u kiss. Love is wanting to hold her in ur arms till the end of time. Love is wishing ur time with her never ends, that your lips would be locked together forever, that she'd be in ur arms till the end of time, that u could cuddle with her for all of eternity. Love is being helplessy and deeply in love with her and knowing your love for her and your feelings for her will never change/end. Love is the world, the world is love, and she is the world to me...
The idea of love seems very appealing. I don't really care a lot for it though. Not really an emotional person.
Love at first sight is bull♥♥♥♥.
I wouldn't know how to describe love. There are different types of love. Like, I don't love my parents in the same way that I would love a potential husband.
I don't now if this topic is meant for the Serious Discussion. There's no one definition of love. It changes from culture to culture and person to person. Some people believe that love is created from romance or how much they like those people, others base it on more practical and concrete things.
If I'm the one with authority to define, I'd do it as something that shouldn't hurt either side. If one side is violent or it's clearly onesided. This isn't love. Many people that think they're in love, just have a serious problem. I've seen those who want to stay with people that were obviously very dangerous and violent towards them , they though it was love. At that point, I think it's a disease.
It can't just be an addiction or a control thing. I'll accept unorthodox, but sometimes people just have power in other people's life and they define this as love.
I was all ready to quote Azrael and write that I agree with his point, but sadly that can't be the case this time haha
I don't know. For me love at first sight is a pleasant sounding idea, but one that when observed doesn't really hold a lot of water. You know how they say you truly don't know someone until you live with them for awhile? Yeah, that's one reason why I don't truly believe in love at first sight. Don't get me wrong, I do believe that you can have a very strong attraction to someone the very first time that you see them. In fact, this happens quite often. It's what you do after the initial meeting or sight that truly matters. Do you get to know them as a person? The answer to that should be yes. If you don't know the person than it is truly not being in love with them. It is being in love with the ideal them that you created in your mind.
Now as far as what is love? That's going to be different for every person honestly. For me, love is being able to trust someone with everything, and them being able to trust you. A mutual caring that is unique to the couple. Emotional stability in the couple is paramount. If the trust isn't there, nothing can build. Think of maslow's triangle if you will. Being loved is the most important thing needed aside from food and not getting stabbed.
Love is something that I can't give a clear answer on because I've yet to have enough experience with it. I've had crushes on multiple people throughout my life, but I had merely intense interests and appreciation towards them. To me, crushes and love are different. As for "love," I've yet to truly experience it. The most I've had is a little bit of cheap sex.
As for love at first sight, I'll hold my opinions on if I think it is real. The people who think it is fake need to look in the minds of people say in true honesty that they have experienced it and believe in it. I think that if you think love at first sight is fake, then it is fake. And if you believe in it, then it is real. Love partly deals with your mind, and since your mind is relevant to what you perceive as "reality," then you're probably the one who decides if love at first sight is real, at least in many cases.
Doesn't exist, obviously. Love is much more than an emotion. It is a connection. A connection which cannot exist unless it is mutual.
Unrequited love is different thing all together. Synonymous no doubt, but it is a different thing, and it feels different.
Is complete infatuation possible on first sight? Hell yeah haha, I am a victim of it all the time.
I see a pretty girl with an interesting haircut and a face full of metal and I am ________ while I follow her around like a love sick puppy haha. But that isn't love. It's just strong attraction.
I will say that strong feelings early in relationships can feel like love. It is similar probably the same emotion you feel when you do love someone. But it's just not mature, it's different when you've been dating someone for 7 or so months and you wake up, and you get up to make them a breakfast already knowing everything they want. You wake them up and chat and you already know what they're gonna say and stuff. You know them like you know your family members and stuff. That is love.
Not love hearts for eyes while you stare across a room.
It's certainly possibly to feel infatuated or whatever at first site. Maybe even develop a bit of a crush. I would know from experience.
But I don't think you can instantly fall in love with someone the moment you lay eyes on them. At least I can't. Personalty is really important to me and I can't tell what a girl is like just by looking at the shirt she's wearing, or the by the color of her hair.
What kind of love are we talking about? It matters.
I love people. Even in a person I passionately hate there's something that is worth loving or appreciating. Even if I dislike a person, I can acknowledge his or her values. I reckon that this is a matter of maturity. When people really despise someone, they often ignore every good the person has. I don't see the point of that - if you open your eyes and look deep enough, you can see what virtues that loathed person does have. But then again, most of the time I can't be bothered to stay angry for long, and this is the reason how I can forgive people. If you focus on goods, you can love anyone. As for romantic love... it's hard to say what's the difference between loving people, my friends, my family and loving someone I love for dear life. As Casanova said, there is a difference. All I know is that I have never been happier than in those moments when I experienced this romantic love thing.
Love at first sight, I kind of consider it a bit silly. It sounds awesome, sure, and it is a fact that the attractiveness of a person is determined in a ridiculously short amount of time. Yet, as Hannelore neatly put it, it's not what I would call love. I could call it attraction or sympathy, but not love.
As for the love is a hormonal response stuff: call me a naive girl, but I desperately believe that love is... more than simple chemical reactions, even if I do acknowledge their significance.
...in the long run, as long as love makes me happy, I'm not complaining. :>
As mentioned here before, there are several kinds of love. I will, however, focus on one of them.
Love is, to me, more than I will ever be able to describe. You may call me an idiot if you will, but I believe in soulmates. The reason for this is that I have found mine. When I looked into the eyes of my beloved for the first time, I felt that everything fell into place. It felt right.
The kind of love I am talking about is a bond shared between two individuals at a deeper level. Accepting, but with a room for growth. Making you stronger as a person. It's a great source for happiness in many ways.
I wouldn't haven become the man I am today without it.
I don't know about anybody else, but as soon as I saw this thread....I'm all like "What is love, baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me no more." Hahahahahahahaha.............(I feel like I'm the only one laughing)
"You never know how strong you are until strong is all you can be..."
I like to believe love is true and something that people are capable of, but its hard to grasp it, obviously I will need more experience, but as of right now, and people at my age, I don't think they know what real love is.
I believe someone can care for another a great deal, and you usually know when you are going to get along with someone when you fancy them, because you get that giddy 12 year old girl feeling. However, I think that love is often mixed up with infactuation.
I say this because you are usually happy at the fact when you find that someone that you are attrated to likes you, it kind of suddenly gets you interested, as you know someone hot likes you, it's flattering, right?
So the pretty normal thing to do is go for it, and you're like hey this totally cool guy I am attracted to likes me, so I suddenly like him too, because he is so cute and 'nice', and it starts out like that. I mean, don't lie, it happens a lot?
But I find that once that little spark and new attraction fades, you start to realise its a bit ♥♥♥♥♥.
Obviously this is not always the case, but I just feel people do not know what love is, and the word is thrown around a lot, and misunderstood and mixed up with lust and infactuation.
