    True love is rare unless you are talking about

    how a parent loves their child. I think about how I feel when my children pop in my head. I would never want to see them hurt or know they were suffering. I want them to be happy and feel confident and secure. I would never play games with them or envy them on any way. I would...

    So many obstacles in life.

    Many I will never want to relive but at the end of the day I feel a love from this man like no other. I've experienced betrayal, trust and honesty issues, and infidelity but my love for him is stronger than ever. It's the old cliche that you don't realize what you have until you...

    Love is all you need.

    .. John Lennon. But is it true? There is such a hurry to modern life. Guys want to have sex almost the minute they see you in a short skirt! It's not romantic, it's functional, gratuitous. There's no deep feeling, just passion, selfishness, and a sense of 'next!' It's a...

    Deceptions In True Love

    I have been in love numerous times; sometimes physically, sometimes emotionally, and sometimes intellectually. I have never been in love with someone that included all three things at the same time. I have been tricked numerous times into believing that having love in one of...

    As I end a marriage that I thought would last

    forever more and more I realize true love is rare. What ever happened to loving someone unconditionally, through thick and thin. Yes sex is important but it's not all a relationship should be. True love is there at its best and it's worse. It's non judgmental, doesn't stray for...

    True love is very rare.

    When you find that one person who shows you how much you are loved, wanted, and needed hang on to them. Through the good and bad times. There is nothing like true love.

    …and just because it's True doesn't make it

    remotely easy. Sometimes it's only earned and discovered through the darkest tests of Ego's surrender. Then, it's deeply humbling and unimaginably sweet.

    True love takes time

    and patience to develop. Generally the faster it progresses, the more quickly it fades away. It is worth it to get to know someone and know that you have something real and long lasting.

    It is something impractical and surprising.Most of the time it is filled with hope and faith, so little charity, because it is jealous.True love is long suffering and kind.It is so rare, like a pink diamond of ninety carats or more.But you can't keep it in a safe or a display...

    Do Not Love Someone Who Do Not Respect Your Love And Care And Feelings.

    I have learned a lesson of love Loving someone who doesn't love you back is hell. Don't ever let anyone convince you that you can be happy with someone who doesn't love you. And don't ever love anyone more than he loves you..

    If it's meant to be, it will happen.

    Love has its strange ways of finding its way back. Regardless of what you believe or don’t believe, when it comes to love, you need to have a bit of faith. With a bit of faith and love in your heart, miracles can happen.
