    What Is Love?

    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...

    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 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...

    People say that love comes

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

    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 is. You might ask,

    "Love is what?" and then will not find the answer because love simply is. Perchance it's a fundamental quality of nature, with a key that turned unlocks magic in your life. Have you ever heard of the big bang theory? It goes that the whole universe started from one particle...

    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...

    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...

    We say the words.. But does he love me?

    Do we simply love things about the other person? I thought I felt love but now I just feel confused... Maybe it never was love just empty words.. Like all the ones before. Maybe I have a skewed idea of what it is and how it will feel? So much confusion about this for me for...
