    Love Is...

    If you can't stomach "sappy" lovey-dovey nonsense, then I suggest you stop reading, and go away. This is your only warning, and consider yourself warned. Love is more than like, so much more. I define love as a bond between people, a bond that looks past the superficial and...

    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 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...

    That Thing

    This is a sequence of what I think love can be sometimes, I have only reach the after-love part, hope to get to real love someday...   The needy part: post flirt, giggles that come and go, laughing at stupid dorky things, drunkenness with mutual smells, difficulty...

    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...

    Love..

    To love someone is to learn the song in their heart, and to sing to them when they have forgotten.

    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...

    I Do Not

     I dont define love.. because it's too precious and powerful feeling to be defined... we can't say love is this or that...  we can't write an equation.  There are too many exponents and variables....

    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...

    Love Is Patient, Love Is Kind

    I heard that in a song once. I asked my friend what she thought love was, she said it was evil and cruel. That it knows what you're getting into, but doesn't try to stop you from falling.I still don't understand what that song meant, though.Patient? As in it'll wait for you to be...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
