    Can 2 People Have The Same Definition?

    It just seems that no two people arrive at the same place. So many people living in sexless, passionless marriages. So many people complacent to stay where they are cause it sure beats the unknown. I just wonder, do we build up so much expectation and define it too much, that...

    I do want to know what true love is.

    I'm desperate to know. So very often I've watched others hold hands and look at each other with deep unconditional love and wonder why I'm never able to experience it. I want more than anything to be someone's one and only and for them to be that way to me. Not only passionate...

    I Think

    The truest love is the love you find inside yourself for you. No other love will ever compare to the love you give yourself.  Without it you really have no love to give to others.  It is our own acceptance of self that gives us the purest form of love to share...

    I've been in several relationships over the

    years, but only one was ever truly satisfying. The rest either didn't last long enough for them to mean anything, or the guy turned out to be a jerk. I've been dating my current girlfriend for about seven months now, but I think that's too soon to call it love. We'll see where...

    Is It A Bond?

    If only you knew, she makes my heart pound, she makes my mouth dry. Not once we start talking but before and after my heart is thumping. It's platonic, intense,why does this happen? It's different from other times and lasts

    I have been 'in love' 3 times in my life- each

    time I have thought, this is the one, and I have done everything I could for them to make them happy but still I am single. My last boyfriend told me he loved in the morning and broke up with me at lunch time after being together for 3 years, do men not know the meaning of the...

    True Love Is That

    feeling of total trust, respect, passion, commitment, indescribable joy, happiness, peace, innocence, contentment and satisfaction in and with someone or something. Then comes the hard part - how to keep it so this true love does not fade and die!

    I Know What It Is N O T

    Love is something that still escapes my grasp. In the words of folks more intelligent and well-spoken than I, "love eludes me." I couldn't really sit down here, and type something compelling about what love is. All I ~can~ do, is tell you what is NOT love. Love is not the...

    I figured out that you can only know true love

    if you love yourself first, after that you'll be able to see the reflection from your spouse or true which is the love you that will cause you to know true love.... I hope that makes sense

    Why do we love? Is it to prove

    or protect? To provide or give us a piece of mind? Is love a barrier we hide behind, or is it what motivates me and you to make, innovate, redo, undo, to get closer. Or is it just another thing we put on our résumé and use it as an excuse? My god I hope none of you do that...
