I Want to Know What Love Is

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 310 People

    Poets and authors have tried to define love

    for centuries, whereas scientists have only recently started. Many of us know intuitively that love is a major purpose for living; that connection is inherent in all that we do, and without love, we cannot survive as a species. But what is love, and how do we know when we're in...

    I grew up with two older sister

    who loved to watch the girliest movies. In all of the movies there was a romance between two people and it always ended with the guy getting the girl. I've wanted something like that ever since. I was in love with the idea of love. I had my first kiss when I was 3 to a boy in my...

    I want to feel the warmth of another hand

    Love

    Love should never be an afterthought. If you have even the smallest inkling that you have love for someone, you must explore it. If it is indeed love, you must show it. You must let that person know that they mean something to you. But don’t fall back on ‘actions speak louder...

    Love Is Inside Me

    Love is love, and it is really not something that can be explained to someone that has never experienced it. Love is a basic need in our lives although some will claim they don’t need it; I think someone is in denial if they say they don’t. You can pretend all you want but...

    I wish I knew what it was.

    It always seemed interesting to me, the feeling of being so attached to someone they'd do anything for them, I wonder what that would feel like. I wonder what strong attachment beyond simple friendship in general would feel like. But i probably nrver will, doesn't bother me...

    What Is Love?

    The million dollar question.

    Every person doesn't mater what country, language, culture, race, religion, gender. Every person has that pull to love. Since the dawn of time and humans began to explore, love was a question. What we learn with this question is that to each and every person love is different...

    love isn't overrated.

    Most of the time it's misunderstood. Let me share my definition of love. It is not important that a man should fall in love with a woman or vice versa or something like that. You could even fall in love with your pet. Geeks may fall in love in technology. Love is something...

    Love isn’t always going to be perfect.

    It’s not a fairytale, or a storybook. And it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It’s a short word; easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without. Love is...

    Your salary is not love

    and your word is not love. Your clothes are not love and holding hands is not love. Sex is not love and a kiss is not love. Long letters are not love and a text is not love. Flowers are not love and a box of chocolates is not love. Sunsets are not love and photographs are not...

    I never been loved in a way I love.

    Yet I'd like to know what love feels like. The love from ones heart that touches another soul. Love that runs warm in your vein. Love that does run. Love that can never be torn apart. Hearing it or saying it means little. It's feeling with the actions of another. My life is...
