  • Love is an excuse for sex. The reverse also applies.
  • love is what you feel inside for someone. Essentially it's a selfish feeling as all feelings are by definition. It's a funny old game. If you feel love for someone, show it all you can and tell them. Doesn't mean they'll love you back though. Guess I don't really know - sorry.
  • A friend once told me... "The only true love is that between Man/Woman and God,...everything else is a momentary lapse of a Man's/Woman's reason."
  • Love is lust but you care much more. -its so much more, but thats all I can say or add at this point.
  • Love is thinking about the other person's feelings before your own.True love is when you let go of your own ego and give your all to them without thought of payback.
  • It is the realization that no one being is independant of another. It's the butterfly effect (no, I don't mean that funny feeling you get in your stomach when on a date). It's realizing that what you do to others, good or bad, effects everything and everyone, including yourself. Take from others, whether directly or indirectly, you lose 10 fold. Give, however, and what you ultimately receive from life is love. It's not a feeling, it is an understanding of the most fundemental aspect of life. All things are inter-dependant. To do something contrary to love, is to be nothing short of self destructive
  • 1st Corinthians 1:1-7 (NASB) describes love this way: "1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked,does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
  • Thinking of growing old with them, and then hoping that in your final years, you'll be the one to go first because you couldn't bear how it would feel to live without them.
  • love is a relationship between 2 people who trust and respect each others, love has no boundries,
  • The souls recognition of its counter part in another
  • Love is being there for each other, caring so much that you can't live without them. It is someone with a shoulder to cry on and you with one for them. Sometimes its soft and kind and sometimes hard and angry. It's arguing and still trying to be each others everything. Their the little pieces that make you whole.
  • Chemical reaction in your mind that give stimuli.
  • Love is what separates Humans from Gods, Seraphim and Cherubim and all of the creatures in the unknown can only watch onto humanity and wonder in constant envy at the mystery and gift of love between human beings. We are the inevitable gift to each other with the ability to offer pleasure, elysium and an imaginable sense of dying and being reborn a thousand times over in the short space of every minute of every life time!
  • love is a feeling that you feel when youre feeling a feeling that youve never felt before..
  • Love is something different to each one of us. My definition is knowing someone so well you know what they are thinking. A certain look between 2 people, with nothing said,says more than words ever could. Allowing your loved one their freedom and space they need, knowing they will always come back to you every time.
  • love as no scale in the english language...you could say you love pizza and then turn around and say i love you mom....But love is something you appreciate someone you like being with or something you enjoy doing...love does not have to be something intense were buterfly fill your stomach, but it can!!! you can love someone as a friend, boyfriend/girlfriend,
  • ...love is many things. It is the support...the glue that holds together all of what you understand and see as reality...known and unknown. It is the indescribable force that holds together the atom. It is the support of the earth beneath your feet. It is that which you breathe and that which sustains life. It is a …reLAXing INto universal...divine…support. It is a continuous flow. It is seen in everything around you. IT IS LIFE.
  • Love is...a battlefield. (I agree with Pat Benatar on this one). We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searchin our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield Youre beggin me to go, youre makin me stay Why do you hurt me so bad? It would help me to know Do I stand in your way, or am I the best thing youve had? Believe me, believe me, I cant tell you why But Im trapped by your love, and Im chained to your side We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searchin our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield Were losing control Will you turn me away or touch me deep inside? And before this gets old, will it still feel the same? Theres no way this will die But if we get much closer, I could lose control And if your heart surrenders, youll need me to hold We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searchin our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield We are young, heartache to heartache we stand No promises, no demands Love is a battlefield We are strong, no one can tell us were wrong Searchin our hearts for so long, both of us knowing Love is a battlefield Written by: mike chapman & holly knight
  • To KITKAT who answwered..Absolutely. You said it. Freedom and space are so important.
  • Love is a great feeling between 2 people.
  • love is not always a feeling, its action in one's behavior which confirms respect, trust, care and sacrifice. it is a committment of the will.
  • no matter what you can never really know until you have had a child!
  • Love is to give "whatever I have, whatever you want".
  • ...baby don't hurt me don't hurt me no more! (sorry I couldn't resist the song reference) Seriously though, I wouldn't even know how to begin to answer this question.
  • Nobody knows for sure. They just hope they do.
  • caring for someone with out a single selfish thought.
  • An intense affection for another person based on personal or family ties. A strong affection for attachment to another person based on regard or possibly shared experiences, an expression of affection. intense emotional attachment, or a ((Zero score in tennis))
  • chemicals that tell your brain you and another are compatible. Then you can make a child.
  • Quite simply I define love as an emotion in which you experience where you only want good things for the person you love. Now the intensity of that love and the reasons for that love change. Intensity is how much you would do or sacrifice to acquire good for that person. Reasons> Affection, romantic love, friendship, family etc.
  • Baby don't hurt me, Don't hurt me, no more.
  • i would have to say that love is something felt between two people when they see eachother everything stops and all they see is them and they have the most powerful kiss ever between them
  • That without which in some form or another existence becomes needless waiting. here i also mean for anyhitng that drives passion, could be art, science, discovery, philosophy... Alchemy really: that which transforms the mundane into the transcendental and drives beyond perceived limitations. That which pushes the created into becoming also creators; that which links physical & spiritual; that which builds bridges; communication; that which destroys in order to rebuild; that which causes laughter, the cruelest & the kindest. The opposite of indifference, instinct calculating, freedom binding, and the place where one stands to see both sides at once. Always more but not nessessary to be forever to be real; it is what breaks the perceived laws of time and space.. it is absolute power and absolute helplessness; simultaneity unleashed through unbreakable chains... Is it really better to know such as this and then possessed no longer? Sacred madness.... terrifyingly enticing
  • I cannot do better than the first answer... however.. Love is unconditional and selfless. It is patience and kindness. It is everlasting. It is honesty and loyalty... Devotion
  • Love is a choice. Chemistry brings about the initial attraction, but after the wind dies down and you settle into every day life, love is what keeps you together through thick and thin. If love were some kind of uncontrollable emotion or impulse, Jesus would not have told us to love our enemies.
  • Love is including others instead of excluding them. It's an openness of the heart which allows us to be the way we are, and allows others to be the way they are as well.
  • Another illusion in the human brain brought about by chemical reactions.
  • Love is heaven
  • selfless, devoted, forgiving, patient, optimistic, and encouraging.... it is also what sits between me and my wife on the couch right now!
  • something indescribable until you feel it yourself
  • Love is unconditional respect,understanding,care,and acceptance.My opinion anyway.:)
  • Love is the most ancient language known to all living beings.it does not need verbal communication.it is a sweet pain in which u can find ultimate happiness.
  • love is aquired over a long period of time. you cant love over night. love is time.
  • Love is Life
  • Love is Life.
  • Make sure you mess around a lot first, get your heart broken a couple of times, then look under "busted for life and love" in the dictionary.
  • an unexplainable bond.
  • its a word to describe the way you feel for somone. Sadly, its become very complicated, and feared. Love dosent have to mean that you want to marry the one your in love with. There is motherly love, puppy love, true love, sexual love....so many that "love" is actuyally very vague. All i think is that its supposed to be a good thing. (a good feeling)
  • For me, I am very sad to say, is just an excuse to bring myself more pain then I would ever wish to deal with.........
  • u cant really define love, love is wen u u no that shes the one wen u no that u would do anything 4 him or her
  • 1.) An inexplainable yet incredibly strong feeling for someone...Most people use the word "love" to get into someone else's pants. Love is overused in today's world, people say they love someone because of the way they look or their body. That isn't love. Love is when you can't do anything without thinking about that person, you always want to be with them. It's not that you want to have sex with them, you just want to spend time with them and you just want to hold them and never let go. Love can be fooling, you can think you're in love and it can lead to the most horrible feeling in the world. Also you can wait so long for someone, loving them, and waiting for them to love you back, but they don't return it for a long time and you spend years thinking and thinking and it tears you up inside but when that person realizes that they love you back it's miraculous. Love is a very strong word, don't overuse it.
  • what is love... those people who doesn't like it call it RESPONSIBILITY those who play with it call it A GAME those who doesn't have it call it A DREAM and for those who understand call it LIFE...
  • love is a four letter word
  • what isnt love
  • Love is the feeling of true happiness between two people. Whether this is a sexual relationship, or just one between friends. It is definately possible to love more than one person, just in different ways
  • G'day Ednister, Thank you for your question. Love is having strong positive feelings for someone. There are different kinds of love - the love you have for your mather is different from that you feel for your girlfriend. Regards
  • i can't explain what true love is, but i know it when i see it. i see it everyday when my parents look at each other. after all these years, that sparkle in their eyes is ever present. as they explained to me, you won't have to know what it is, because you won't be able to deny it when it happens.
  • Love is an emotion and experience related to a sense of strong, or intense affection. A feeling of intense and tender attraction shared in passionate or in an intimate attraction. Love is regarded as an intimate interpersonal relationship. love usually refers to interpersonal love, an experience felt by a person for another person.
  • To me, love in a "romantic way" would be knowing someone at their absolute best AND WORST and still wanting to be with them anyway.
  • 1st corinthians 13:4-8, 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 easly angerd,it keeps no record of wrongs.love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.it always protects,always trusts always hopes,always perseveres. LOVE NEVER FAILS!!!
  • Love is all the good feelings you get when you are with someone and you know you can get that warm feeling inside. That is one, but love is also knowing how to stand by yourself and letting your partner stand by themselves. All though I myself am not a gold digger, having a little bit of money could also be considered love. Realisticly, when people live with no money under strained conditions (bills bills bills and no extra money), a lot of love could be lost, because when two people are together under such circumstances, and they feel stressed all the time, they start to unconciously remember the other person as someone who was there when there was so many bad feelings going on, and it's hard to love someone else when you feel like you need to struggle to survive. So love is a lot of things. Love is also when you are strict on a partner or a child on rules that you need met, like telling your child that it is not okay to scream at you. You need your respect, and no one is going to give it to you if you don't demand it. No one is going to know what you like if you don't tell them what you like. That is why it is hard to love and be loved by a quiet person, because they are unhappy and nobody know's why, untill you break up then the quiet person tells it all. So love is respect, caring, honesty, being well off (or at least so you know you aren't going to be in a bad situation and you are both going to try to get better so there is hope), intamacy, good memories, communication and a bunch of other things. You don't always have to be in love to be in love. Some one told me, you don't find a soul mate, you become a sould mate.
  • love is Unpredictable but in the end it always turns out rite
  • 1.) love is something that should allow both parties to be equally thoughtful of one another, not taking each other for granted, doing things for one another - not because you have to - but because you want to. 2.)Love is not being too upset when he leaves the seat up on the toilet or him being understanding when she insists she needs that 4th pair of black pumps. It is being able to see one another's faults and loving them anyway. It is not ever wanting them to hurt and striving to be the best person you can be, and truly being sorry if by accident you fall short of that. It is "completing" one another - but not in an unhealthy sense. It is something that never dies. 3.)Love is knowing that there is only person who holds the "key" to your heart. Knowing that you will be spending the rest of your life with them just makes you feel really good inside. Love is not being able to stop thinking about this person, not being able to stay separated for too long. 4.)Love is not knowing what to say, but you know that you don't have to say anything at all. Love is not only told through one word to someone that you really love. Actions represent how we feel, so if you truly love someone let them know today, waiting for tomorrow may be too late. 5.) In love is the "gut feel" for someone where you have butterflies, etc. You are just happy to be in the same room with them. Loving someone is caring about thir well-being. Wanting to help. Being caring. But you can do it from 1000 miles as easily as right there. 6.)I think it's possible to have long lasting love and also be "in love." Maybe not all the time head over heels being in love, but if two people consciously light each other's sparks, long lasting love and lust can remain exciting and new. It has to be worked on, though, from both sides. I have to admit I still go "ooh and ahh" over my husband's eyes, or his smile, or that tight butt of his even after nine years and many of those having been really tough and being nearly divorced. 7.)Love is saying I'm sorry. Love is a precious thing - both in giving and receiving. Love is unconditional. Love is being there and giving space accordingly. Love is forgiving. Love is trust. Love is a gift from God. Love is everlasting. 8.) Love is what you put into the marriage, not what you get back from it or think you deserve. Love grows deeper over the years and this person is supposed to be your best friend you can confide in and share with. The one that fights occasionally with you for principles and then tells you they are sorry for their part in the arguing. Love forgives one another, not cheats on one another. 9.) love means caring enough about someone that you want to put their interests and welfare ahead of your own. 10.)Maybe love is really about growth and we need to crash into a few walls until we find the door to walk through. http://lovegreetingcards.blogspot.com/search/label/What%20Does%20Love%20Mean%3AGrown%20Up%20Version
  • I really like Just_wondering's answer, pure beauty. Love really can't be described. But I guess if I were to describe it. It would be like you are on top of the world. Some one's always going to be there, understand you, know who you really are,what you are all about, what your intrestes are, what your values are, someone to share life expierces with, be there to talk to, be there to cry, be there through the great times in your life. And through the bad. I guess you can't really describe it until you felt it.

  • Love is the feeling that you get after staying with someone and careing more about them than your own life but most of the time you don't realize how much you love them until they brake your heart. I don't think I knew what it meant until last week when my girlfriend left me.

  • My definition (paraphrased and borrowed from self help books, long ago)... "when meeting the needs of another person is as important to you as the meeting of your own needs, a state of love exists"... or something along those lines. Attribution forgotten, but I will look it up if any one cares to know.

  • Ron Burgondy knows best
  • I understand love as a set of attitudes and actions that are far broader than the concept of love as an emotional attachment. Love is seen as a set of behaviors that humankind is encouraged to act out. One is encouraged not just to love one's partner, or even one's friends but also to love one's enemies

  • love is what you feel for a friend or a pet or your famili or your girlfriend
  • I think that love is a romantic affair that you have with somebody. It's a way of having crushes on them, kissing, flirting,etc. it is a way of growing up as well. If you know who that person is and is able to give your guts to them, do it. Just remembered that love can't be stopped. It can also be fun if you are crushing somebody in specific.
  • Many answers here contain the truth of love and some are close. Love is not so much a thing as a level of understanding that is achieved from many experiences. Love in it's purest form transcends the limitations of the human experience and goes beyond the fragile ego we possess. However love in the limited sense is very confining as it usually extends from our physical needs. Sex, acceptnce, the will to pleae and be pleased, our search for gain and of course the need to be loved, as previously stated. Love is not a thing that can be anchored down into a saying or form, it's a state of spiritual and temporal construct that is necessary to give and receive. Our culture associates sex, gain materialistically, overt recognition and other aspects as love. You must seek the answers in places that you will go into through your lifes journey. Don't be closed to the injury love can do, but learn from it and never quit loving. You're on a path to a destination and along the way you will discover many things about yourself and others. Love is and you are. Embrace it. Seek it. Understand it. No one can offer you what it is to you, you alone will know it and your knowing will be out of your search, your experience and your choices.
