True Love? Such A Thing?

Call me a cynic but I am beginning to doubt there is such a thing.
I mean what is love anyway? 
It is mainly for poets and philosophers to spout about.
Its made up in the movies to make blockbuster hits. 
Romance novels sell by the billions but all of it is just an illusion.
Love is more about making money then anything!
It is all hype!

Love is something you don't want to go near. Been there twice, yes all were true and it is possible. But when it visits, be careful for it gives you a high no drug can and it leaves a wreck as only love can. Love is more searched (in our hearts) than on Google. A companionship, a caring, and lots of "I'm always here for you darling/baby/honey". The withdrawals I'm feeling now...just want my fingers touching a special girl's, her fingers fondly running through my hairs .. there's more yet too emo-choked I feel to say.. Ciao bella.. I'll be back another day :)..take care God Bless :)

I believe the problem with what we tend to call true love - is the rubbish our parents gave us to read and the same rubbish we gave to our kids - all those fairy tales left us with these hopeless illsuions - I do believe love and true love exist but just very different to what we have allowed ourselves to look for as a result of the fairy tales - we just need to change our ideas

Didn't read the comments (sorry it's early and got work very soon)...but I like the Rand perspective about love, which is, to put it succinctly:<br />
"Love is our response to our highest values - and can be nothing else."

Justmeonline I guess it would depend on the definition of successful. My grandparents stayed married till my grandpa passed away. Yet he was an alcoholic and I know that there marriage was not a happy one. I am not saying that there are not committed couples that stay in a relationship all their lives. I just don't believe in the "love stories" as you put it. Fantasy and reality are quite different.

It depends on the person I think. I very much love someone and have done for many years, I believe I will continue to love them until I die, however they don't love me. Sadly I'm one of the few capable of love and being faithful, and it's completely misplaced!<br />
I suppose reciprocated love is near impossible to find, but this is probably due to many people having entirely unrealistic expectations of it. Looks fade over time, as do the butterflies and all the other romantic feelings you get for the first few years, on top of that nobody is perfect so there is no point expecting it; people have to work through issues better rather than jumping ship after an argument or saying things have become "too comfortable" as though that's a bad thing and also it's hard to stop believing the grass might be greener elsewhere when it's unlikely to be.

We're a unique yin & yang~<br />

Mwah!

That is just how I feel!

True love is like Ghosts , you only hear about then but never get to feel them first hand .

After 19 years I know that my husband and I don't have love. I know we have had passion<br />
Maybe it is out there for some people but I have yet to meet a couple that have stayed in "love" and lived a life time faithfully too each other. Sad but true! :(

I have experienced the thrill of romantic love that kind of fairy-tale, butterfly in the stomach, kind of infatuation. I am not talking about that kind of "love" I know that exists in our hormones. I am talking about the kind of love that lasts a life time. The kind that marriage vows are ba<x>sed on... sickness, health, poor, rich, death do us part... Sharing a life time of laughter and tears. I honestly thought it was real but I feel like it all was a mirage!

Yes there is.

Wow - you're even more cynical than me. And I'm coming off the back of a great long "dry spell"... As it were
