    I really do. Is there any man out there

    who is mature? Loyal? Honest? I've been hurt so many times. I know I am young but cheesy rice I can't keep a boyfriend longer than two months. What am I doing wrong?!

    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...

    What Do You Feel When You're In Love?

    How do you feel when you are in Love? Is it the butterflies in your stomach, the hungerless days and nights, or the non-stop daydreaming? Is it when you have to look your best for that person, or having no desire to see no one else but that person?Do you feel the following:You...

    "He vanishes unwillingly,

    when you less expect. But how to stay in that mode? I have a feeling that true love might never come to me.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I wish I knew what it was.
