    It's a complex emotion

    that I can only say I've felt it for my parents and grandparents and even then it was a respectful admiration. I feel no sense of connection to my brother and that doesn't bother me. Romantic love escapes me and I've only had passing fancies that leave me wondering what I was...

    I Don't Understand

    I don't understand, I try to be kind and loving, but it always backfires. My kindness it always taken for weakness. I talk to my girlfriend all the time and I try to be as open as possible with my feelings and try to get her to communicate the same way with me. And I'm getting to...

    It has never happened to me- I have never

    fallen in love. I have been attracted to some girls and they turned out be minor crushes, but I never pursued those interests. I always- SIMPLY LET IT GO. That's why, I've never been able to understand the concept of love at all. Maybe, someday I will. But, I won't really take...

    What's the big deal about it?

    Why do people place such importance on the three words, 'I love you'? It's not as if anyone actually knows, for sure, what love is. It's an intangible thing, that only exists when..almost, when we want it to.. But just cos you think you're in love..doesn't mean you actually are...

    Types Of Love

      Well, I have read many of other stories on this, and most people use the term "love" as in "in love" with someone else. I am confused on what love is, also in different ways.  I have had friends tell me that they love me, and some people who I...

    I don't understand love at all! it's so freaking confusing. I mean there's different kinds of love, like the love or lack there of for your family, it's expected that you love them because they're your family but you don't necessarily have to love them, i know i certainly don't...

    Heartless

    When I was a kid, people would ask me if I loved my family, and I sometimes had a hard time answering them.  I just didn't know.  I loved my dad, but my mom and my brother would make my life a living hell.  How can you love someone when every memory...

    Definition Of Love?

    Love is meeting the needs or satisfaction of oneself, any person, object or animal by responding with much interest where one smiles in happiness and is personally attached.

    Do You Know What It Means To Be In Love?

    Does anyone out there know what it feels like? I’m dead serious. I’ve been asking myself this question over the past few days and I can not get an answer that makes sense to me and my logical side. See, I’m a child of the 80s (ok I was born in the 70s), and I remember...

    There Should Be More People In This Group

    Is it because I've never had relationships with

    anyone, much less even really thought of anyone in that way...? Usually, all that happens in the end is one or the other getting hurt, so why even bother?

    Sometimes I feel like I should just give myself wholly to lust, because deep down I fear that love will never find me again ?

    Is Romantic Love Sustainable?

    So confused about romantic love nowadays. Too many mind games, too many liars. At some point, I don't give a damn and play with others. But in the end, I want to be with someone who cares. Yet, is it even possible to find someone who likes me as much as I like him? Someone as...

    What Does It Mean?

    I loved her. She said she loved me. Then one day she left with no explanation. Did she stop loving me? Did she ever really love me in the first place? I was angry and hurt, but that passed and I find I still have feelings for her. Is it even possible to just stop loving someone...

    I don't get it. I want to feel love I long for it, but at the same time I'm afraid. I don't know what to do. Maybe I'm afraid of girls? I've been in relationships befor and I always ended them when they started getting deep. Then I would hide under my cover in my room and cry...

    I honestly don't understand love anymore,

    maybe I'm just young for it right now, but with the experiences I've had, I wasn't so happy with it... at one point I was happy while I was dating my ex, but then he left me without a reason. I was depressed for a year, then I met someone else who I thought would make me happy...

    I Don't Have Any Desire To Understand It, Either...

    Love is an emotion that defies logic or explanation...and that's just the way I like it. I love just because I feel close to another human being, or pursuit, or object...not because I think that I Should Be obliged to love.
