    Love Doesn't Judge

    I've dated my fair share of guys....I've always based a potential boyfriend by his personality. If he's fun and makes me laugh and I feel comfortable around him, I couldn't care less if he's black, brown, white, or purple. It's what's on the inside that makes a couple compatible...

    Our Wonderful Connection

    We met each other in university. I went to tell him something and he said to me: „We have phoned, haven't we?“ I was thunderstruck because my surname is such a common one. Actually the phone call was a few months ago. He couldn't mean that, but he did. From the beginning I...

    Love is love. As long

    as its reasonable. A 28 year old claiming that they are in love with a 5-9 year old isn't reasonable, the kid doesn't even know what love is or what it is about. But I believe anyone can fall in love no matter the age difference. No matter if you are related or not. No matter...

    The only race that exists is the human race,

    I don't believe in other races though I will acknowledge if u are a mullato, because that is great. Love is my message in this life, what's yours?

    Love is kind. Love does not get puffed up.

    Love doesn't see anything but love itself.

    Hi all my ep friends,

    It's about love, or just communication

    there is no real reason you shouldn't be with them unless they turn out to be someone you thought they weren't. But even then you can just talk about that. But I believe that there is no Age of love. No distance is too big for two loved ones. We are all Human and can love...

    If your feel it in your heart, and it's true, there is no way that a feeling is "wrong". You cannot help who you fall in love with. It just happens. A persons gender, race and age should never stop you from loving someone. Not all people believe this but it's defiantly how I feel...

    True

    Sadly, not everyone is as accepting of this reality as the people who fall in love with someone that society or family deems *inappropriate*It takes courage to face them down and do what you know in your heart is the right thing for you.

    True Love

    I believe true love not depends on the age, race or gender. When only people think about  "profit " of their own , then  all these matters.
