      I don't think that I will ever understand love even though it is the feeling, the belief that all cultures and religions share even though they will strongly refute it when faced with it. It is a very precious gift, one often misused and one that is unable...

    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...

    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?

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It's a complex emotion
