True love has more to do with the self than the other person because it is selfless and not possessing. Most people never experience true love because they have to many insecurities that blocks them from it.

Love is both vicious, and innocent at the same time. It's a storm of emotions. At first, you are breathlessly captivaated by it's beauty, unable to see the potential danger that lay ahead. Longing overtakes your soul, engulfing all reason, or self-defense. You suddenly realize that your feet have left the ground, but it's too late to turn back, and truthfully, you don't want to. Your heart is placed on a silver platter, to be protected, or discarded. The decision is out of your hands.

If your love is returned, there is no greater feeling that you will ever experience. The surrendering of your heart makes it all that much easier when it's time to surrender your innocence. Under a foundation of true love, physical intimacy is sweet, and passionate, and beautiful. It is two souls becoming one in the universe. It is being wrapped up, safe from the world in their arms, seeing the love in their eyes, and knowing that there is nowhere on Earth you would rather be.

As euphoric as love is, heartbreak is equally penetrating. To realize that you will never be with the one you love is like a thousand knives stabbing you at once. At first, you're in shock. You're angry. You don't want to believe it. At some point, you begin to attempt acceptance. People tell you to move on, but everything reminds you of them....every song, every beautiful place that you shared with them, your empty bed. You don't eat or sleep. You lose weight. You stare blankly into space, wandering what went wrong, and playing conversations over in your head. At some point, you break down, and realize you can't live that way. Are you finally going to use common sense to move on? No, love has never gone hand in hand with common sense. You're going to win them back. You're determined. If it costs you everything you own, you have no choice. All you know is that it's not right without them, and that you're not you, that you're not complete.

And when they take you back, you blindly accept, forgiving them in tears, not having the sense to be upset. You're just so thankful that they're back.

Oh, how love is like Mother Earth...kind and cruel, beautiful, and revolting. A storm today is but a rainbow tomorrow. We never question it. We forgive, forget, and move on.

Infatuation is not love
Obsession is not love
These are emotional highs....drawn to what lured you out of your own desire emotional high flames consuming you unto you are no longer..... but and obsessed emotion infatuated with its own obsession.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1505901


We've been married for 30 years. Four years ago he suffered brain damage and has very little short term memory, has seizures, when he gets tired he won't co-operate and has temper tantrums, he's constantly underfoot and gets in my way when I'm trying to cook or clean, he demands my attention and gets upset when I'm too busy to give it to him but I remember the man he was before, the one I fell in love with. I remember the vows that I gladly made to him and the promises he made to me. Sometimes when it's a bad day I wish he were in a nursing home, and then I imagine life without him. I know one day he will have one too many seizures and his heart will give out, but as hard as he's making my life, I know that day I will have to say goodbye to my best friend and I will miss him so terribly, the good and the bad. You are right, when you love someone just the thought of life without them is very painful and I imagine the reality is even worse.

I had the thought a while ago and couldn't get around it that-

the difference between deeply loving a person, and being IN love is sex. that's IT.

not in love anymore = i no longer want sex with you.

What makes the love you feel for your mom or close friend different from love you feel for mate??
Sex.

"in love" is a bs term. you love someone or you don't. otherwise youre just loving the poking.

Thank you!! That has been my thoughts as well on the subject for years.

The reason why people think of love as something its not, is because of the brainwashing from society, hollywood, and music.

Love is love. In love should be changed to in lust.

The majority of people in the world, have no idea what being truly in love with someone is like. Why? Because they are spiritually underdeveloped.

"To man it is a thing apart, to woman it is her whole life." Forgot who said that.

Anyway, love is pain. 90% of what the world calls love is really lust or an arrangement made out of lonliness or a need for security. 90% is also unrequitted.

more than anything it is an acceptance of who this person is.

the person you love is not the solution to every problem you have.

not a project to be molded or changed as time goes on

not a punching bag

this person can be; your best friend

a tireless supporter

if it is right ; you will laugh together

cry together

lean against each other as you age, becoming an even tighter fit, enabled by maturity and expanding your combined strength.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.


If you can love like this, above, then you know that you truly love the other person. Essentially, when you can take yourself out of the equation, i.e.) self-pity, me, me, me, and put someone above yourself without a second thought.

There is no such thing in this Age. People base all relationships on materialistic values such as Stature,Wealth,Ideal body image,Personality which conforms with social acceptance.

1.Stature - School is the best example of this. In all schools around the world there is different groups of teenagers, each group is assigned its stature from cool to outcast. Depending on their stature you will find most teenagers will only date other teens in their social group and will feel either bitter rejection for a group with less stature or complete loss of self importance with the group with higher stature.

2.Wealth - People Idolise wealth mainly through celebrities. Due to indoctrination through media,people in western countries are very Materialistic in the sense they use objects like Cars,Homes,TVs ETC to bring them a sense of happiness and linking to the first thing to raise their Stature. But materialistic people will never be satisfied with what they have and will keep buying newer and expensive items all the time to keep up that very expensive road to happiness. Like any addiction anyone who can feed their happiness is a prime target for a date.

3.Ideal body image - Someone who fits the first two sections, they are a celebrity meaning they have a very high stature, wealthy and fits with what the media portrays as popular by using models. For example long hair and stubble looks were the ideal body image in the past, Short hair big muscles and more recently skinny men who kinda look like girls in more recent years. If you tick some of the boxes of the latest trendy look or ideal body image, you will have no problem finding a date.


4. Personality which conforms with social acceptance - Depending on your stature,wealth,body image you will be expected to act in a certain way around of people. People start to lose their sense of self and really play the role they are expected to play. This is why most marriages end with divorce because they can't keep up the act all the time
and once their true personality breaks through they just are completely different to each other and only fallen for the fake acting personality.

It's a shame because people really do no know what True Love is.
