What is love??? (31)


1 Name: jenny55972002 : 2008-12-29 07:25 ID:NlpKKUcO

What is the true meaning in love, I've always wondered that, I could never understand? Would the person you would really fall in love with, be the person you've always known? Or a random person you've either bumped into, or the person that you didn't know but ran into before, just didn't notice each other. I'm trying to figure that out? everyone that I know is like this guy is in love with you,or you love this guy, but could never tell them: What is Love???, will i ever fall in love???

Love is knowing that no matter what, you know you made the right decision in choosing them. Love is being happy just being around them, and deriving so much pleasure from knowing just how happy they are. Love is that feeling you get when you first embrace each other, and you know that if only for those few quaint seconds, you are truly happy. That they have the power to give you true happiness, and that you would do anything to give them that exact same feeling.

Love is a cultural construct whose precise meaning varies according to cultures, epochs, social position, age, character, etc,...

But in your case you seem to be wondering about attraction, infatuation: who raises your interest why and how? That is something that depends very much on yourself, so with time you will get experience and learn what your tastes are. Some people need to spend a lot of time with someone to become interested, others only need a glimpse. Most are a mix of both. But that's too general and abstract to be useful. Once again, you will learn it by experience.

I get what u mean, this question has always been my mind, I've started college recently, I've made many friends and there is a guy from hong kong that i've gotten to know, he has met my sister and her friends, well we were hanging out and he was walking me home in the snow, we were so close to keep warm that, he made sure that i wasn't left behind, but as soon as my sisters friend started to talk to him, I got really jeoulous and angry. I've never done that before, it was as something so precious was being stolen from me, he's not my boyfriend, but how could i act like a child like that.... I feel like such an idiot :(

Love is a lot like God, either it exists in your reality, or not. You will believe it when you experience/feel it, but it depends on what experiences you have and how you perceive the world you are in right now - you may not be able to feel it.

love is that deep bound feeling of connection to a person that are either related to or have a deep sense of feelings for. evidently love can bring out strong feelings of passion that you have for someone. love is noticed at an early age and by expirenced throught your days of youth. youth love is just exprements. but by adulthood you truly find out what love is.

"What is love?
Baby don't hurt me.
Don't hurt me, no more."

So basically you're wondering if someone is your true love, and you're worried if he might not be? Well, all that nonsense about your one true love being a single person somewhere out there is bull. It's merely an ideal that, ironically, isn't so ideal :P
What I'm trying to say is, you don't find true love, you make it. Simple as that.

ahhh that makes perfect sense! but if that is all true they why do some relationships for some last longer than those for others?

That's part of what I meant by "You don't find true love, you make it.". It takes work to keep a relationship. If both of you really try, you can make pretty much any relationship work.

>>17 Did she know how you felt? It sounds like you were just hoping she would catch on -- girls aren't mind readers! X_X

Love is trusting yourself enough to desire to trust someone else with you physically as well as emotionally.

I know! Too many people are apathetic about love...
That's why, when one loves, it's important not to love merely for the sake of loving. The cause of one's love must be for them, not yourself. Sincerity and unselfishness are vital to any relationship!

Old manly wisdom passed down by our elders: "Bros before hos."

Don't fuck up your relationships with friends because of any love interests. Because if something goes wrong, at least you've got your friends and/or vice versa.

21 Name: Secret Admirer : 2009-01-04 18:01 ID:GsmgYWWe

that all makes sense. but about telling her how i feel i confesed to her and then went to italy for vacation. when i got back i started talking to her again. then she told me that her and my best friend were going out. and i lied to her by acting like i was happy when really i felt like shit. i......... really dont know what to do.

22 Name: Secret Admirer : 2009-01-04 22:14 ID:GsmgYWWe

well i kinda think i know what to do.it took me awile. why should i be sad about something i cant control! infact i should be happy for my friend not angry.he just wanted her more than i did. theres plenty of other women so why care about one little girl am i right.

love is when butterflies in your stomach fly to the genitals and make you feel more awesome than usually :3

Ok my friend likes every guy she meets, but there is a specific guy at school, that she likes he's from korea, well she told everyone that the korean guy is off limits, but I've known him for five months and she gets all happy when he looks at the table, but everytime he walks next to the table he pats me on the shoulder, and when we are in the hallway we talk and say hi, even when i play basketball with all of my guy friends, he smiles and gets distracted by me, he got hit by a basketball thirty-two times when watching me play, I know it's weird that yeah i'm the only girl playing with them, and the same time guys don't find that attractive,but his friend even told me that he finds a girl playing basketball very attractive, because i'm not afraid to get alittle hurt, I don't know what to do, cause he only talked to my friend once, but she gets angry with me because i don't hook her up with him, but she likes her, international student from japan who is living with her.

Don't do this to your friend. If you know she likes him, don't do it.

Also talk with her openly about the issue.

27 Name: jenny55972002 : 2009-01-16 07:14 ID:IT73UWf6

I don't get how she can like every guy, but the guy doesn't like her like that, but the same time she likes her exchange student, the korean guy who i like asked me out, but at the same time all of my other friends tell me that i should go for it, because she likes every guy she sees and that those guys are off limit for us, but he told me that he doesn't like her, and that he wants to go on a date with me, but i tell him that i don't want to hurt a friend, but tells me that if she was really my friend, she would be happy for me, He wants to take me to korea for the summer, but we haven't gone on a date yet?

Do something. You already know what to do.

Report to us when you've done something.

i dnt agree with ur opinion on youth love is an experiment.. Im 17, and i've been going out w my gf fr 3yrs nw.. Experiment? I dnt think so. I think its more than th word love. We care and love about each other w/o having to say "i love you" evryday. Our actions express what we feel. If u can love and care abt smeone w/o having have to say i love you and u act according to ur loving and caring to that special smeone, i believe its true love. Also, to love smeone is to be with that smeone called or uncalled for. And stay with that person knowing that both of u r happy by just being w each other no matter in what condition u two r in. And accepting what th other have unconditionally is important in true love
