Love differs from heart to heart; love can be good and can be bad. To love and be loved is the perfect ingredients to happiness but to love and not be loved will be darkness in your soul. Being in love is like a drop of water after years of draught, it eases your soul’s agonies of life. Being in love is a feeling not all humans will experience. So if you have it cherish…….just love it I think love is never tired of waiting; love is kind; love has no envy; love has no high opinion of itself, love has no pride; love’s ways are ever fair, it takes no thought for itself; it is not quickly made angry, it keeps no accounts of wrong; it takes no pleasure in wrongdoing, but has joy in what is true; love has the power of undergoing all things, having faith in all things, hoping all things. Though the prophet’s word may come to an end, tongues come to nothing, and knowledge has no more value, love has no end.
Love has never been defined since man began, so we have to use our own hearts and minds to decide. Love isn’t all about looking at a good looking woman/man and hearing fireworks go off all the time. That’s usually physical attraction, but it’s normal at the beginning of our relationship. Love is respect, wanting to help that person in any aspect of their lives; protect them from harm’s way; knowing that each other will be there 100%; feeling safe with that person; proud of being with them; sharing your hopes and dreams together; and my favorite … feeling like you can conquer the world together! Knowing you will be together no matter what and continue on until the day you pass away. Now that’s love to me! The Meaning of Love and being in Love is and this is from my opinion: When two people care for each other so much that they would not let nothing or no one get in there way of being together. And they will go to the end of the world to be with each other and do anything for one another. But no one can explain Love. There is no explanation only what u would call Love. If you love some one then you trust them, you can count on them when you need them most. Fine things mean nothing but time means everything. You should be able to tell each other everything. If you never argue then that’s not love. And there really is no true definition of love because everyone feels different about the person they love. You can’t just speak for everyone. Because what I was reading didn’t make sense to me and this was coming from Adults.
The person who said– You love somebody if you care for them more than you care for yourself. You love somebody when you would rather make them happy then your self happy– you were absolutely right. Love can be described by that. If your own wants and needs don’t matter to you as long as that person is okay, than that is true love I believe that love can be described in more ways than one and there sure are different kinds of love you feel for someone but when you can’t eat and can’t sleep because all you think about is that special someone than you are definitely in love. Ever sit on the couch thinking your going to relax and read a book or something and you look down and your on page 10 of the book but because your mind is thinking about the person you just can’t seem to get your mind off of you have to go all the way back to page number one…..or you have a date with that special someone and when you glance at him/her for the first time that night your stomach knots with butterflies and you suddenly feel so sick because there’s the man(woman) of your dreams standing in front of you….my definition of love is when you can’t wait to see that person again; when you get dropped off at home but run for the phone just so you can hear their voice once again; when you would give anything to be together just five more minutes; you trust them with all of your heart; your comfortable together and know you could talk about anything; you are there for each other no matter what good or bad; you stand beside them proudly with confidence and last but definitely not least, sharing special moments that one day you know will make wonderful memories to look back on and share with the ones you love the most. True love is when one cares about someone else’s well being as much as one cares about one’s own. Making someone else happy is certainly important, and yet one’s own happiness in addition to that and as a result of that is what genuinely is true. True love stands together in equality and balance to what is honest, true and caring and not only about romantic love. It is a kindness of heart, soul, and mind. True love can be definite and is also a given, known and reciprocated when two people “share” in it. That last post was right on! If we aren’t happy with ourselves and tripping over ourselves to always please our partner without expecting anything back, then I don’t call this love at all. One thing most of us have made mistakes over wants a 100% perfection in relationships and there is no such beast! Love has never been defined because it means different things to different people. Going to bed and making love is only an expression of love, but it’s the tough stuff in between and sticking together that is the closest to love I’ve found.
To me love is putting up with the arguments with that person and arguing your family down for them. Love is always being there but I don’t think when you love some one you should love them more than your self because that is totally unhealthy. Love is a feeling, an emotion that cannot be explained. Either you feel it or you don’t. We call it ‘love’ because there is no explanation for it. It is not a rational, predetermined action. When you can’t rationalize that feeling then you call it love. Love has no meaning at all! It is the very essence of our being, It is Life itself. “Infinite Love is all there is, everything else is Illusion”. Enjoy it! There is nothing else to do :-). “Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails!” The meaning of love and being loved? I don’t think anyone can explain it, love is not something that can be explained it is a feeling that each and everyone should feel at least once in their life (hopefully). Of course it can be expressed but as for explained well it is difficult as everyone’s love is different. Love is a feeling that only the 2 people involved can understand, and if you dont understand it yet then just wait. Don’t try to find a meaning for something which you can’t. Love is everywhere it is something to be found and then understand, not explained. There is no explanation that is anywhere near what loving someone and being loved by the same person, truly is. I would also like to add a very precise addition to this area that’s maybe not so closely associated to the term ‘love’: I read somewhere that “girls don’t want to be the object of adventure only, but rather be part of a joint adventure that the two in a couple can share.” So that’s a lot like having the feeling of “conquering the world,” from above. Maybe that could be called ‘freedom’ too, which is a highly treasurable feeling to have. Most girls seem to have some pretty good ideas of what they want and maybe more often than not also some ideals for the future. But I do have a theory that love lets many girls become very flexible and often able to adapt to a man who’s able to lead. This way, some level of selfishness and target-mindedness can actually become good abilities for a man. I think many girls/ladies may have a life of serial-disappointment if- although they don’t know of any alternative sometimes- being forced to attain a “survivor”- role, controlling everything in the lives of a couple, for instance with a man who can’t take any initiative. So being kind, sacrificing one entirely for the good of another, makes oneself of little value to love.
Sometimes whatever small intrigue gained in the beginning turns into your reason “to be”, one kiss breaks barriers. Smashing everything and anything you are, you loose yourself in that single moment forgetting where you are, who you are. For only one moment you feel more than you have ever felt, your infractions do not exist. Your doubts are gone…everything, but only one feeling resides in you head. That you have found perfection, bliss and eternity.
