Sunday February 12, 2006 5:02 AMLove can never really be defined just because it is such a complicated emotion, true love xan only be defined, at least I believe, by the two people who feel this emotion. True love is so powerful, it cannot be described in words, just felt passionatly between two people who love each other, and are willing to give each other's lives for the other.

Yet for such a complicated emotion it is so easy to see, simple to feel, and fast to be present in a relationship. Its funny isnt it? How love isnt really complicated but when one trieds to explain it, its unexplainable?

That makes no sense.
The theory of relativity is pretty complicated - but obviously present, simple see and feel. Complexity of a thing does not directly relate to our ability to intrinsically understand it, even if we cannot explain it.

I love to read and I have read some books that turned out to besappy love novels although purely by accident I assure you. However, I think the best incite into love that I have ever found was in Mitch Alboms Tuesday's With Morrie ( it was one of Morrie's aphorisms). "We must love each other or perish." I take this to mean that love is necessary for life, and I believe that because love creates acceptance and a sense of worth that it is neccessay for life
In the same sociology class where I learned of Morrie we learned of different theories on how people come to be the way they are. I personally believe that a person learns behavior from their environment and those in it. This causes me to believe that a peson must love to be loved because we have to be taught somewhere. Right?

Anyway, I've been basically alone for right around two years now, and in that time I've really come to terms with what being alone entails. It's a really liberating thing, a sort of freedom that can't be realized in any sort of relationship. But, alas, all good things must come to an end.
And I just want to reiterate my belief that love is utterly spectacular.

Monday January 22, 2007 2:29 PMLove is the most difficult emotion to define. Unlike other emotions love is not easy to handle, emotions run and is hard to control. Also, there are too many levels to love, family love, love for a friend, a pet, material things, and love for a significant other. Who can control love in the end? No one, no one has a control over who they fall in love with or who falls in love with them. So, love is the most incredible feeling and yet very confusing but everyone has to learn to live with it.

Monday January 22, 2007 6:19 PMLove. What is love, but to be loved? Can you be loved without first giving love? Does one need love to give love? Ah, the conundrome of love.
Possibly the most important part of it is to love yourself. That is something that I have to work on.

Ergo Love is too general of a term. I define it as: having a strong attachment towards something.
It's an emotion. Emotions are inborn behaviors; not a product of nurture or environment. In fact I'd say it's one of the few things that exist which can't actually be taught which is why individual morals vary depending on the person.

Friday March 9, 2007 7:04 PM[Quoted]real love; which is a combination of friendship, loyalty and intellectual interest, with a side dish of wildy salty lust thrown in too keep things from becoming blandly Platonic.[/Quoted]
The above is as close as anything could possible come to the love shared between long term mates, IMHO. And, as it turns out, I've got a bit of experience in the long term mates area.
I couldn't even begin to try to describe the bond between a parent and child. It's the strongest force in the universe, well, in *my* universe.
Edit: Hmmm Looks like I am unfamiliar with the code for this board.

It's more than that too, it's a bond of blood. I've felt instant love uupon first holding once of my nieces... can't be sure though as I'm no parent.
