What Is the Meaning of Love?

The word 'love' is a very common part of our vocabulary. Its use has undergone so many metamorphoses, however, that it is often difficult to understand exactly what people mean when they use the word 'love'.

What is love?

Is it a mushy feeling that makes you go puppy-eyed and malleable? Is it the same thing as sexual attraction? Is it a choice or a decision? Is it forced or an act of will? Can someone love another person without wanting to have sex with them?

Are there different kinds of love? If there are, which is the best kind of love?

When people say they are looking for 'true love', does it mean that there is false love? How is that possible?

Is love sacrificial?

I would like to know what you think.

Happy new year to all. . . .

I wish everyone a blessed year ahead. . . .a year filled with happiness, good health, positive decisions and umimaginable breakthrough in Jesus Name.

Let's just make sure, we think positive and have a forgiving heart, laugh more often even in what most people will not find amusing. . .let's work out some more on our body conditioning eat healthy and pray to the almighty. . . .

Happy new year once again.

@ Toyin.

I wish you double "ibeji" this year. . . .lol

You deserve more. . .am only considering the not too favorable economy right now.

Love = God

God = Love

That's it. To find true love is to enjoy the work of art created by God. It is nature, and it is a feeling that connects us and our spirits and also those of one's ancestors. It is a connection, and it is a chemical reaction inside of one's brain.

Na'mene?

Verses 4 to 8 of Corinthians I chapter 13

[center]Love is patient, love is kind,

Love is patient, and love is kind,

it is not jealous or prideful

love is not rude,

it is not selfish,

it is never angry, it is not happy with evil,

love is not happy with lies, but rejoices in the truth.

Love never gives up,

love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,

endures all things.

Love never fails.

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, [/center]

Hi diddy4,

Dont like talking about this but i think i kinda understand ur pains. There have been so many times when i wonder why there is something called love.

There've been so many times when i wish i've got no emotions. so i know how you feel.

Wish you the best.

public opinion.

T some love is scratch me back, I scratch you. . . . If you stop scratchin me, sorry for you. To someother couple, love could be those "little things" like kissing on the cheek before you leave work and after you get back. To someone else, love is unexplainable.

To me? the meaning of love is as complex as pin-pointing the reason for your life (religious stereotypes apart). Love could be anything, with reason.

True love is not just a feeling. Feelings can never be strong enough to carry the weight of a relationship. True love is when you want the utmost good for the person you love. It focuses more on giving than receiving. It is unconditional.

Wow, girl I do feel you on this. I will definitely mail you on yahoo or chat with you. That is some serious issue right there. Not to worry, things will come out fine at the end. The major thing, is you believe in God and He will make everything good in His time. Don't worry.

I'm sorry, sweet Esly and Princess. . .

I've been really busy lately, and will be for some time. So I've only been able to log on and off again - and even when I'm on, I'm not able to post actively, because of my commitments.

I miss you too.

I hope you understand.
