    I Don't Know

    What is love? All I know is that it exists in a biological sense but does love actually exist? I've seen many definitions of love. I doubted it occasionally, mostly I prefer not questioning it. It's frightening. I feel that how love is described is almost an impossible thing to...

    and what it means to you, I'd love to hear :D for I don't think it's always about the big things, though they are nice, but it's also about the little things. Like when you see the person you love, putting a smile on their face and vice versa, little cute notes they leave you...

    I am experiencing love right now, the bad kind, the one that destroys you slowly but the other person doesn't have an inkling of it. She loves me, or I guess that what she made me think all this time but the way she loves is really lacking. Maybe any love won't ever be enough for...

    My Definition Of Love

    Heart is thumping when you hold her, and you feel completely at ease when you hold her, or she holds you. You feel like you can be yourself with no reproach. When your dating, you get nervous before she arrives, before you pick her up, when she's around you. You can't stop...

    Everyones Definition Is Different,

    There is NO fear in perfect love. There is no love greater than this; that a man should lay down his life for his friends. And there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.

    No Matter The Struggle ...

    No matter how painful, no matter the indifferences, no matter how many struggle awaits you two. Love is measured by facing the challenges over and over again, because you know that there are joyous moments when you two are together.
