True Love: What is it?

Several times in the course of our debates on romance/relationships, the issue of 'true love' has been mentioned. What exactly is this 'true love' that we all seem to be after?

Take Boon's and Mcdoe's word for it because they are right. Yes, Love is all that-quoted from the all time #1 bestseller worldwide.

1. It speaks the truth (or attempts to-at all times)

2. It sacrifices but expects nothing back in return (Agape)

3. It is you when you love a woman/man with your whole heart and realize he/she is not meant for you in that manner. (yet you still love 'em) .

4. It offers

5. It is Jacob working 7x7 years for Rachel's hand in marriage

6. It is Job going through pain and isolation, yet refusing to curse God

for for my grand finale>>>>>>>>>>True love is Christ-laying down His life for absolutely EVERYONE. John 15:13  "Greater love hath no man than this,

that a man lay down his life for his friends."

God is TRUE love.

Advanced lust for the body and the mind=Love

there is also the feeling of being completely one with another person

loving someone =this is also the feeling of being completely one with another person

being in love =the feeling of being completely one with another person with sexual undertones

I know what it mean to experience true love! I know that true love actually exists. Those who had been hurt while searching for true love must realize, that true love come from being hurt! This no doubt is confusing to those who are certified pessimists. I can only say that true love can best be experienced than discurssed. It is real and the reality pronouces it everyday.

The only way to experience it is to see the other side of it. To be determined that you want it and you must have it. True love is like wealth, lazy people and poor people venerates it saying it is a myth. But only the rich know that wealth is just the opposite of poverty. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE REALITY, JUST TRY IT. BEGIN FROM 'YOU' GIVE IT AND YOU WOULD FIND IT. I tried it and it worked for me. Do it, now. Love your enemy, your work, your God, your country etc all these little things matter. It can't fail you.

I LOVE YOU ALL!

sanrima, i could see you yet to experience real love, dont let what someone has done to you in da past get the best of you, out of every 12 there will be a judas, so instead of closing your heart from real love, just swing your head, look cute and dress nice and allow the real Peter to come in, there are good and bad and ugly, the good will come your way, i cld see it

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, always perseveres. Love never fails.If the above is in place, true love is ensured.

True love is deep affection, passion, honesty, sacrafice and the ability to forgive. It is that deep breath that you have to take when you see the one that you love. I always tell my husband that i love him to the very marrow of my spirit. I traveled to the other side of this earth for him,,, i have never regretted a single moment.

True Love, love, Infatuation, Compassion, Interest, Feelings, Attraction, Like, e.t.c

We could sit here and argue all our lives,

This is Own opinion,

Question; What is true Love??

Answer; True Love is a state of mind. It is a word which we use to find comfort in our companionship with another person. It is a term we use as an excuse to do things with other people. It is a non-existent phenomenon,

True love is no different from infatuation, True love is as real as heaven and hell (for those over-zealous church freaks, there is no proof of it).

In simple english, TRUE LOVE DOES NOT EXIST

This is my honest opinion, and if you give it thought you will see I'm correct

[color=#000099][/color]True love cannot be expressed in words. Simply put, it is unconditional love. You take the person as he/she is despite his inadequacies.

True love is being there for each other in good and a bad days.....it's not about sex. Holding hands, laughing and crying together and being ready to sacrifice your life for your partner. That's what I understand under true love.

Does true love ever die? Years down the line do you still find yourself thinking about your old flame? Is that what true love is? Or is that a form of obsession. What is true and love and does it ever die? Let us know.

Outside of the religious and spiritual things because we all know that God is the master of Love.

For me Love is what it is. Love is not one thing and it always changes.  It's not always a happy feeling or sad feeling. Sometimes love is strange and we don't understand it.

There are principles for everything and love has them too. I can't name them all but I can tell you what I think. The best love I have experienced with another person was unconditional. Accepting a person completely for who they were no matter what I thought about their life choices.

For me love is duty, respect, honor. I may be missing somethings but this is what comes to mind.

No matter what's going on in life. If you love someone then you will fulfill your duty, you still cook dinner or wash her hair even if you're upset.

No matter what, Love will always bring you to some level of respect for each other even when you're mad. You don't stay mad for too long.

No matter if your partner is laid off and feeling down and the world thinks he's a bum, you still honor, respect and support him and strive to nurture him back into his place even if you are disappointed with him. You don;t look down on him or her.

Also loving some one and being in love with someone is completely different.

Keep it moving

True Love exists...in movies, novels and in YOUR DREAMS.

There is no imperfection in True Love.

All human beings are imperfect...

therefore, all human beings are not capable of feeling true love.

Only God, the perfect being is capable.

Anyone that professes true love for me should give himself up for torture, shame, beating and crucifixion all because of ME. Then I would agree that true love exists among mankind.

If I may understand you True love = True God. But the greatest aspect of love is severity. True love then must contain element of justice. If you love somebody you must be prepare to lay your life down for his protection, you beat your child to protect the child from harm because you love the child truly.

If God is LOVE to be true love he must give out painful punishment to correct, , for the greater part of true love is severity, do you agree?

If all so-called love were relentlessly sifted to the bottom, nothing would remain but selfishness, vanity, weakness, desire for ease, conceit or instinct.

Genuine love will take no account of what gratifies the other, of what is agreeable to him and gives him joy, but will only direct itself towards what will benefit him, regardless of whether it affords him pleasure or not. That is genuine and true love and service.
