<p>Yes, I have many good memories of her. I think it is impossible to be a human and not to be in love atleast once. I mean in real true love. Not lust not love that will do until something else comes along. I mean real true love.</p>

<p>Yes it was fantabulous, deeper than the deepest ocean, higher than the moon.</p>

<p>Quite unfortunately yes.&nbsp; It is a mental weakness that changes a person sometimes dramatically.&nbsp; It becomes consuming to try and please and keep the person that you are emotionally involved with and in too many cases the feeling is unbalanced.&nbsp; I find that being attached to someone is dangerous and useless.&nbsp; I have made a personal committment to NEVER allow myself to become that weak again.&nbsp; Even loving your children can become an&nbsp;experience in&nbsp;hurt and resentment if you as&nbsp;a parent give too much of&nbsp;yourself to them.&nbsp;</p>

<p>nope not yet maybe some day </p>


<p>I feel like i was in love in my heart i believed i was but right now im not so sure.</p>


<p>yes, falling right now.&nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>If LOVE MEANS NEVER having to say you're sorry'</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>I have loved and been in love many times!</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Do we really know what love is?</strong></p>

<p>Only once. And the feeling is so very different, so strong, so compelling and at times so overwhelming that I know I had never known love before this.</p>

I am very much in love now....my wife is a wonderful soul.

<p>Yes, but I was too young, na&iuml;ve and indecisive to realize what I had, and to keep hold of it...now he's married to a great girl who I can't even hold a candle to...</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;...sometimes you really don't know what you&nbsp;got until it's gone...</p><br />

<p>Yes I have and it was the best feeling in the world and the worst hurt I have ever had. Took me till&nbsp;I was 45 to find what I thought was my soulmate and eight months later I found out it was all a game she liked to play to see how hard a guy would fall for her.&nbsp; Caught her sleeping with her ex who liked to punch her lights out weekly. Go Figger. She got my money my heart and any trust I may ever have for another human being.&nbsp;I wont say it will never happen again but gonna be a pretty special lady to make it so and to get me to trust again. . Am i bitter hell yeah i am! Am I over it (its been 9 years) nope. Have I let it go Yeah for the most part.&nbsp; I've moved on and will continue to heal.&nbsp;</p>

<p>have been, still am, always will be</p>

<p>Ummm..yep!&nbsp; I am in love with life!</p>

<p>I am always in love! there are many thing to be in love with? it just depends on how much of a loving person you are, there are also many things to like. I think that not to love is s terrible thing!</p>

<p>yes, and still am in love and loving the feeling :)</p>

<p>Yes - I found the love of my life three years ago and we are blissfully happy. That's not to say we don't have the occasional silly tiff as we are both strong personalities who were used to getting our own way perhaps too often in previous relationships. We are both&nbsp;learning to be more tolerant and more patient and we end up laughing about our silly arguments.</p>

<p>Still am, I don't know if it's a blessing or a curse!</p>

<p>Yes - No - Yes -No -Yes uh um maybe - Yes - Yes - NO&nbsp;NO&nbsp;NO&nbsp;NO&nbsp;NO&nbsp;NO&nbsp;NO&nbsp;- OMG YES&nbsp;YES&nbsp;YES (last one is current)....hope this helps :)</p>

<p>Yes, and it turned out to be the biggest mistake of my life</p>

<p>I AM in love, even after almost 9 years of marriage we're still in love like school kids.</p>

<p>Well probably not.</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>No offense to anyone,but unless you're married or even engaged, it's hardly ever true love.This is especially directed towards teenagers(sorry).But commonly people confuse lust with love.</p><br />
<p>Love doesnt need to be complicated,it's simple.And it doesn't even have to be in a romantic way.</p><br />
<p>People can fall in love with their friends but,not in any romantic way...it's called agape love.</p>

<p>Yes I am in love truly for the first time and it's amazing.&nbsp;</p>

<p>I certainly hope so!&nbsp;I'm still figuring out what it is to be in love. The last young lady I was dating, I certainly had some deep feelings for her and I&nbsp;can only guess it was some kind of love.</p>

<p>Head over heels and love it!</p>

<p>There are lots of different loves - but I&nbsp;believe the most precious of romantic loves is first loves - and I had that - I was blessed to meet a boy in high school who showed me how every man from that day forward should treat me if they "love" me and care about and respect me.&nbsp; He was kind, considerate, loving, inspiring - open to learning from me as well as me learning from him - he respected and didn't even bring up the notion that we would consummate our relationship before marriage - it was NEVER an issue.&nbsp; He made me feel special and cherished - like no other person in the world could compare to me - wow!&nbsp; My most memorable moment among the thousands in our 5 year relationship - after a dance he was holding me and I fell asleep, as I&nbsp;woke, I&nbsp;remember him pulling me close (not knowing I was awake) and saying, "God I love her so much!" Can I say it again?&nbsp; WOW!&nbsp; In a way, he spoiled it for all others after him!&nbsp; (sigh!)</p>

<p>Yes...then later I regained my sanity :-)</p>

<p>Yes, and I think I still am.</p>

<p>Yes, a few times.</p>

<p>Yes</p><br />
<p>I&nbsp;am now, and I couldn't imagine not being.</p>


<p>Yes, with my husband who is no longer living.&nbsp; We were husband and wife as well as best friends and soul mates.</p>

<p>How does anyone actually truly know?<br /><br />
Even if they think they're in love, there isn't a proven way to know for sure that it is actually love.<br /><br />
Does anyone really know the true definition of love?<br /><br />
Cause I sure don't, and from what I've seen, I really don't think anyone actually does.</p>

<p>only one word&nbsp; YES</p>

<p>I&nbsp;fell in love with him and loved him so much I didn't want to destroy his life.&nbsp; I&nbsp;gave him up and gave up my dreams of being happy.&nbsp; I&nbsp;didn't explain it to him, there were things I&nbsp;just couldn't tell him.&nbsp; I know he hated me for a time.&nbsp; I&nbsp;can't say I blame him.&nbsp; I&nbsp;thought that the pain would go away one day or lessen to a sore spot but it hasn't.&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>For about a decade I&nbsp;couldn't talk to him at all because I couldn't NOT cry.&nbsp; After that I thought I was better and could talk to him and did.&nbsp; I still cried but then I couldn't exactly tell him "Oh, sorry, I screwed up.&nbsp; I thought I could talk to you and be okay but I can't so I'll talk to you some other century."&nbsp; No, I&nbsp;had to try to keep up the front and *hope* that I had learned to cry silently.</p><br />
<p>After all these years and oceans of tears, I&nbsp;was finally able to tell him what happened and why.&nbsp; I don't know if he really understands but I&nbsp;think he does finally know that I did what I&nbsp;did because I loved him so much...and I still do.&nbsp; These days I don't hide my tears as much and tell him more that I love him.&nbsp; I&nbsp;think his children are beautiful but I will never stop grieving for the ones we never had, the ones I felt I&nbsp;had to give up.</p><br />
<p>If you're looking for a happy ending.&nbsp; There isn't one.&nbsp; Sometimes love doesn't have a happy ending but I love this man enough to have given up my life and, if served the same situation again, I would do it again because I never stopped loving him that much.</p>

<p>Thought so twice but was proven wrong.&nbsp; Now I am and its real and will always be.</p>

<p>uhh who hasnt</p>

<p>Yes, with my wife of 36 years and counting.</p>

<p>Nope. Never! I Though I Was But I Wasn't.</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>But thats okay cuse I am so busy and i dont want to deal with heart break so I will wait until I have time on my hands and want to be in a relationship.</p><br />
<p>Peace Be With You&nbsp;Peeps</p><br />

<p>Never................... only lust, obssesion and infatuation</p>

Nice one LL ...........

<p>Of course!</p><br />
<p>I HAVE a mirror!</p><br />

<p>I always thought so, but when I really think about it I can't be sure.</p>

<p>Okay, what is love again? I've heard things like... Oh, it's when you go to sleep thinking about a certain person and wake up with them still on your mind. Or, you'll know you're in when you don't want to sleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. Honestly, what is love? I'm not being bitter, but what the heck is it?!</p>

<p>Ohhh yeah baby, I definitely have.&nbsp; Or as a woman that I consider one of my mentors would say, "I've been there and done it, honey."&nbsp; It's an absolutely wonderful, amazing feeling.</p><br />
<p>I've fallen out of love too.&nbsp; Now, this feeling isn't so wonderful and neither is it amazing.</p>

<p>How would one know ...........</p>
