    Love is the desire the communicate oneself

    for the good of the beloved. Infatuation is inevitable, but love is a choice. Romance just happens, but love takes work. We do not want to rush things and we don't want to make wrong decisions, but if we happen to love someone, why not? After all it makes us less selfish, and it...

    What Is Love?

    Not sure. But always remember a friend telling me that she was in love and he made her want to be a better person.

    For me love is a principle,

    not a sentiment. There is love based on facts about a person, knowledge of their mind not just how you feel for them or around them. Love is realistic and looks at the truth of a person. Not blanketing over the flaws but determining whether they are detrimental or personal...

    Love To Me Is....

    I think that love is sharing with others, telling someone something that might be good for them to know even though some things are hard to hear. To spend time with them, to listen to them. Also, meeting their family and friends over time. I think love is also caring for others...

    For Me...

    There are many definitions of love. And I don't think any of these ideas are wrong. For each person, it's different and what works for a couple is the RIGHT answer for them. But for the sake of this story, I'll share what I define "love" as. :-) Love means knowing...

    Love Is

    Love is being able to be together in silence, and completely happy. Unconditional support for whatever life throws your way. Agreeing to disagree, and allowing each other different opinions without judgement. Love is a hug when you need it, without having to say so. Mostly, love...

    Sharing Time

    When I say 'I love you' it pretty much translates to 'I wish I could make more memories with you, and I wish I could bring some joy into your life' I beleive the emotional charge behind these intentions is strong enough to call it love. Besides, it really is stronger than...

    Love Is Being Love

    When you are filled with love for someone, simply being there is enough.  It is not that their pleasure is yours, or that your pleasure is theirs.  Love is more than pleasure. It is not that they complete you, or that you complete them, you are both complete.  Love...

    Love

    Love is like an atmosphere.  More of an illusion through which beings are emcompassed within.  It is like the temperature, you can't grasp it but you feel it.  Neither can you see it, or when you try to discern it as one thing or find the single source of heat or...

    My Definition Of Love

    For me, love isn't about buying someone flowers or any of those superficial attributes. One solid way to show you love someone is to do something for them that is difficult for you. Like, say, you have trouble being on time or remembering things and that bothers your partner, so...

    Chemistry

    The love that includes sexual attraction, is a bio-chemical reaction in the brain, that makes you go crazy and act strange(in a good way if the other one is in the same condition). And the love you share with your close friends is based on trust and understanding(also here it's...

    Love Is Patient, Love Is Kind

    I Believe That There Are Many Kinds Of Love.

    Love is not a tangible thing that you can see, so when you think of what love looks like, it can vary from person to person. What I think it looks like may be different to you, as well as what I think love is. I do not even know if I can put into words what i think the...

    What Is It to Me?

    For me, Love is putting someone above yourself. Protecting them above all else and making sure they are ok, even if that means you are in a lot of pain. You have to set them free, it's an old one, but it's true. They have to be free and it's a dichotomy. You must look after them...

    What Is Love?

    I always thought that love sucks because you can get hurt by it, but if you don't get hurt by it, then you won't be able to stand on your own two feet. However lately I think of love as a thing that makes you strive to better yourself to earn that love, because the person I...
