What is the true meaning of love?

Most people who claim to love someone don’t really love them, because they don’t know what love actually is.

What is love NOT?

  • Possessiveness is not love
  • Jealousy is not love
  • Lust is not love
  • Fear is not love
  • Keeping people all to yourself is not love
  • Expecting something from someone is not love

Real, true love is unconditional. All other “kinds” of love are not really love. Most parents and kids don’t love each other, most people in relationships don’t love each other, most people on the planet never experience unconditional love in their entire lives… or at least it sure looks that way.

To love someone unconditionally means that you love the person exactly as they are, exactly as they were before, and exactly as they will be in the future – because people change all the time, so if you love the person, you will love them even if they become something you disagree with. How many parents can say that about their kids? How many people can say that about their “lover”? Love is not about you or your pleasure or your amusement. It’s not about what you get out of it or what the other person can give to you. It’s not about having a trophy you can show off with and tell people “This is *MY* girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/son/daughter/whatever”. You do not “own” anyone. It’s not about you feeling ‘proud’ to be with someone who always agrees with everything you say and do and never does anything you disagree with. Unconditional love means that the person can just live their life exactly as they choose and you will always be there for them no matter what.

So, how does unconditional love fit in with relationships and marriage and sex and all that stuff the whole world keeps going crazy over? It doesn’t, really. It doesn’t “fit” in anywhere. Relationships are like trying to put love into a box and keep it there, except love is infinitely sized, and the box is… well, there is no box large enough. And a normal, conventional marriage is quite possibly the worst possible way to show someone how much you love them.

Unconditional love is more of a spiritual thing. It’s not bound by physical things, like blood relations and the desire to procreate. It has nothing whatsoever to do with sex. Most people are in relationships because they’re horny and/or lonely, even if they genuinely think they love the other person. But if the person they “love” suddenly lost their “equipment” for whatever reason, would they still want to be with that person? Would they get jealous if the person they “love” wanted to spend time with other people as well? Relationships based on needs are not unconditional.

In order to truly understand love, you must first forget everything you have ever learned about it from society and anyone else (including what I just said). You are the only person who can tell you what love is. The only reason I’m writing all this stuff is because people always try to fit “love” in with things like dating, relationships and marriage and all that. You can’t make any sense of it if you keep doing that. You have to get rid of everything you think you know first.

About my writing

I write about this because I have always been deeply bothered by society’s definitions of love and how most people talk about love, and everything they associate with it. I have given this topic years of thought, and always found it extremely hard to explain my thoughts in actual words. How do you explain something as abstract and unexplainable as love? Sometimes the topic comes up on forums and I always respond to people as best I can. At first I was terrible at getting my point across, but after enough attempts I actually started to make some sense to myself. Then one day I realized I had typed quite a lot, and I never seem to run out of steam on this topic, so why not write some full articles about it?

If you’ve been here before, you may have noticed that I moved from my old site to theguide2.com – I’m still the same person doing the writing though, so nothing has really changed except the address. :)

Q&A:

Q: Do you think any human being can ever love someone 100% unconditionally?
A: Probably not. It’s (probably) impossible to be perfect, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still worth it to try, just to see how close you can get.

Q: Do you love anyone perfectly unconditionally without ever making any of the mistakes you talk about here?
A: Hell no. But I’ve improved a lot and I’m always working on it.

Q: Doesn’t that make you a hypocrite?
A: If you want it to. In a way, I want my posts to provoke people because so many people get it horribly wrong. And yes, I am actually this hard on myself as well. I’ve done my fair share of stupid things and have beaten myself up over it a million times. But I guess that’s how I had to learn… the hard way. At least now I know what I was doing wrong, and how it feels to be wrong, so I can understand better when other people do it.

  1. l like what you said about everything corcening love,l real leant a lot thank you

  2. I agree with some things the writer said but not all, i believe I truely love my husband unconditionally, We have been 2gether 13 years now married for 5 and our relationship isnt perfect he has cheated twice that i know of and we haqd to go 2 court for dna test 2 c if a baby was his i stood by his side thru all forgave me when he said sorry and loved him no less, he made some bad decisions and i still loved him and didnt look at him any different so i believe you can love someone unconditional if u truly want 2

  3. I really appreciate your narration about the meaning of love.We dont love ourselves if not,the difficulties in d planet must have reduced.. Thank you

  4. Thank you thank you thank you now i know what it really is … i guess so that means that there is still a chance for someone to love someone else 100% unconditionally
    i wonder… that person may be me

  5. If the meaning of love is to get up everything to really love or care for someone on what they are now and will turn out, what is the meaning of hate then?

  6. NO ONE IS PERFECT WITH LOVING THEIR MATE UNCONDITIONALLY. I’VE MADE MISTAKES AND I DID EVERYTHANG IN MY POWER TO CORRECT THEM ALL. I LOVE MY OL’MAN OF THREE WHOLE YEARS. WE PLAN TO GET MARRIED SOON AND HAV E A FAMILY.

  7. I absolutely agree!!! You love a person for who they are with no judgement or compromise… True love is when you find someone that feels the same… And that is tough!!!

  8. realy this is great love love is a beautifull sigin so please dont heart any one

  9. okay the writer was saying that there is no meaning of love and he never said its truelly imposiable to unconditionaly love someone if u really loved some one u wouldnt even ask the meaning because u would already know if u truely were. The writer also to you to forget everything you have learned about love and even what he has said about it. I agree with this page 100% if i was truely in love with someone i would love who they are now and love their past and future and not want a single thing to change about them…

  10. I live in Toronto and I personally don’t know anybody who truly loves their partner. I see people only using each other for support (economical , psychological). Contrary to what people say here , very few people in this planet know what it means to truly have sincere feelings for somebody. 99.9% are people who practice the opposite of what they preach, i.e hypocrites.

  11. For starters I’d like to say thank you. You was able to put to words what I have always felt an thought love was. ( I’m sad to say that I always wanted from others; but never gave it in return. So yes; I know I have been a hypocrite. Which mite be why I never found it ; or didn’t recognize it when or if was ever given). I’m just lucky to see it now; while I’m still young enough to try to change my ways . So that I can try to give it to those around me. And who knows maybe by my example lead someone else to the true meaning of love.

  12. I believe that Love given the time to flourish will flow naturally within your heart, between two people when there is the right connection and chemistry. You begin to know each other, understand each other’s differences, likes and dislikes and then begin to love each other for the person that you are and make the best of who are, the best that you can be everyday…..Keep smiling!

  29. ok i told this lady that she was real nice i gave her valentine she said oh thank you with a big smile on her face and she hug me when i was leaving she told me come back and see me ok

  30. I feel that the true meaning of love is… When you love someone, you are always thinking about there safety, even when you dont think bout them. when your not near them, you want to be so that you can assure that they are safe. The true meaning of love, is the thought of safety. And you have to read into what I am saying a little. But if you have any questions about what I think, message me on youtube
    youtube.com/rclbeauty101

  31. I believe that True Love is when you forgive someone for their mistakes, forget their faults, accept them in any way shape or form, and trust them, care about their safety. I also believe that people think love is a feeling. Love is a mindset. Confused as an emotion or feeling. It is a combination of positive thoughts about one or more people or things. Love is a humans desperation for a “good feeling” that doesnt really exist. When you say you love someone or something all youre saying is that you want it, obsess over it, like its features and the idea of having it around. Love is what an animal percieves as a protective state. When you “love” someone, you just want to protect their current aspects that youre fond of or you want them to protect you from your own daukts, fears, problems…

    love give you all in the world.
    please love truely. any problem came stay with love.

  33. When a person falls in the deep of LOVE FAILURE its the only reason HE/SHE love someone “UNCONDITIONALLY”.

  34. la mour c’est donné et resevoir est quelque fois meme sacrifier

  35. Hey … i like what you wrote … though the part of loveing someone as they are… I dont think that has anything to do with love as it is not a question of what or who they are. All there is is this “love”. I think only budhists got it right (and i checked at some length)… for what me and you are thinking about… love through disatachement. I know it sounds counter intuitive but it is possible… the first time i felt it i thought it was a prefect symphony of rational thought and emotion… and i felt it only twice in my life for about an instance each time. Both times it came from an overfeeling… first time it was passion and lust and second time worry for well being. They reached their climax and suddenly stopped and i for an instant i felt what i know is love … then after the instant was gone it got smothered again with emotions, thoughts and visualizations. It was crips, it was fresh, and an instant where i didnt want anything at all from the other person but felt closer to them then ever. Now my question is … is this a state that we can live in on daily basis? and be like that towards everything? or is it a focused thing towards a perticualr thing… to tell the truth i think think it is a general state of being that could be towards everything… but i dont know.

  36. TRUE LOVE IS WHEN YOU THINK OF THAT PERSON WHEN THEY ARE NOT AROUND YOU . AND WHEN YOU WANT TO BE AROUND THAT PERSON FOREVER.EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR KISS WITH THIS PERSON

  37. TRUE LOVE IS WHEN YOU THINK OF THAT PERSON WHEN THEY ARE NOT AROUND YOU . AND WHEN YOU WANT TO BE AROUND THAT PERSON FOREVER.EVEN WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR KISS WITH THIS PERSONSO F YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE ASK ME???

  38. Everything will be done for someone or something that we loved. But, we have to open our eyes, Don’t blind because love. May Allah give the best direction to get our love…..

  39. who is in the love all what can he say there is not who can see what he say because he is in the true love

  40. who is in the love all what can he say there is not who can see what he say because he is in the true love

  41. Love is very nature of the SELF but the distortion of mind coz mind dose not allow SELF to dominate upon it. The experience near to death,pain ,agony,guilt halts mind for sometime and reveals the SELF prominently and the SELF(love) is exposed which can be then unconditional one..coz SELF is independent of all..it is the source it can’t be sourced ..So its true that we see is not all love its need generated emotion …and one thing there is nothing called “True Love” ..Love itself is True when it happens and if we are not confused with our expectations /needs ..with love..So if we are guided by SELF rather than mind we may reach at our highest potential peak..but the way to it is darkest and deepest valley to realize it..

  42. hi…..pls try to understand love..pls try to understand what is the meaning of love………so

    * Possessiveness is not love
    * Jealousy is not love
    * Lust is not love
    * Fear is not love

  43. IF A GUY R A GIRL NT POSSESIVE TOWARS THEIR LOVER BEING COLSE TO SOME OTHER GUY R A GIRL IS NOT A TRUE LOVE

  44. Luv can b the biggest hurt out there because luv may hurt u in the long run or tgat person you say you love may never ever loved you but because of what society have to offer they do what they do best and pretend..

    thanks very much for the thoughts…

    i have said something too in my facebook.com/wgary

    The Pain has changed my thoughts.. it made me think different upon the others.. no more desire.. just the memories still in my imagination.. this life doesn’t have to be perfect it’s enough to let others happy.. But I believe there is better life than here .. with no more pain.. no more lies.. no more cheating.. forever happy with love in eternity life.. just have to be patient.. God knows why.

  49. What is the meaning of LOVE?
    The word love can’t be explain in words.
    Love is the feelings of two people who love each other.
    Love is that when you love a person what exactly he/she is. You always think of that person. You always think of its safety. You always try to make the person happy who you love. Love has no conditions. It is unconditional. Love has no limits, it can be happen anywhere, anytime, to anybody in this world.

  52. Love – what is love – i just dont believe in it i think its just all fake i dislike the way people through around the word love and this is why it now (to me) has no meaning.

  53. LOVE – what is love- i think love is all just fake … i dislike the way the word love is just thtown about this is why (to me) love now has no meaning its just another word.

  54. “wen u think abt u only then its a love ” the rather thing is jst told by others… n u think tat u r in love……….for others to think god is there

  55. You said true love is to accept who he/she is and never try to change him/her. What you have to say if two person who were in relationship for a long time. Recently he/she turned into alcoholic and emotional abuser. I love him/her. I care for his/her health and wish to be with him/her forever.

    Will you say just to do nothing but accept who he is?

  56. khuda kisi ko kisi pe fida na kare kare to kayamam tak kisi ko juda na kare ap ne bhi kisi se mohbat ki hogi apko pata judaigam kya hota hai

  62. Feel the true power of love, now, and whenever needed.

    Imagine everything you need on your left, everything you desire on your right, everything you oppose beneath your feet, and everything that needs your support above your head. Now imagine having them all satisfied. That’s having everything you need, on the left, satisfied, having everything you desire, on the right, accomplished, having everything you oppose, beneath you, conquered, and having everything you support, above you, supported.

    Use it often, share it.

    God420

  63. Clearly there is something wrong when someone becomes an alcoholic and emotional abuser… by all means accept them as they are, but that doesn’t mean what they currently are is good for them. Why did this person change like this? Something bad must have happened to them. Maybe you can help them with it?

  64. love is something everyone whats and needs love is what keeps people noing they always have someone to turn to to talk to love an be seen in loads of different ways but no matter what anybody says they all want love an feel love at this moment in time and i think you should be proud of your girl or boy coz everyone ones people change if they dident change the would would be the same all the time we need the odd arguement now an agen coz that is love the reason you argue is coz you both feel the same about something and u argue coz you wanna be right when your both right love is more then people say more then people think but every one has there own theory on love an myn is love is magic love is what makes me wake up every morning an no i have people round me that love me an no people are there an mre then any of them my girlfriend she is always there and i love her if she changes she changes that life not love everyone changes and thats why i love her coz she is who she is she is her own an you carnt find no one els like her that why i love her so i think love is loads more things then anyone can eathen think people think of love in different ways and the reason i say this is coz everyone feels love an noes love is there just need show it more .

  65. LOve is a great inner feeling .
    It cannot be explayed in word .
    If you want the meaning of love you should love any one.

  66. love is only feeling for someone & its included the care,love,help & support………….

  67. jo toote dilo ko jode usaka naam love hai.love is mother.
    love ke bare main tumahre prentes se jyada sahyad god bhi nahi janata hoga.

  68. wen u love someone u love them no matter what ur not gunna just move on just beacuase of wat theri goin thru or they cant reach youre expaectation. When u really love someone u cant expect that there won be any burden on ur heart. If you love someone you have to go through many storms and have to go swing with the punches regaurdless how hard it is or how long it can be but there will be a point were ur unale to handle it but u but u still love the person no matter what. Mistakes in the past, mistakes still being made can be looked at one way but actually loving someone means that youll be willing to overcome mistakes mature up and improve. Even if the person loves u back, mistakes will have to be fixes and so on. Ive been there and im still goin through them day by day but Ill continue to mature in my love for girl i am with.

  69. in nigeria here, except christ, nothing like love u are ytalking about, i want u to extend d hand love to me.for me to exprience of what u are saying.am a graduat studies mechanical engneering nothing to eat talkless of job. Pls i need help. My phone no 2348036814176.

  70. True…love is unconditional and abstract and no one really understands it. To love some one is not simply LOVE at all, its the harmony created for time being. To experience love you must love yourself first and find out who u really are; self realization is the perfect thing to know Love….try it out…you will be the most happiest guy in the world. Also to mention…once human realize himself/herself he will love unconditionally 100%.

  71. dude, this is not the true meaning of love. These are all very bad examples of what love isnt… Which we all probably already knew. The examples you use are things not even slightly connected to love. No mention of trust, honesty or loyalty. It seems you have a very immature opinion of what love isnt.
    Also, you seem to view love as a 1 sided affair. All of your examples describe love from the point of 1 person loving another. What is your view on the concept of 2 people being in love with each other?.
    To me, your whole definition is complete nonsense, your view is that true love is infinite?. Does this mean that people can only feel true love one time in their life?, or is possible to love someone but that person be taken from you, then you find love again..but still love the other person also?.
    To be honest i dont know the answer to the questions i ask but im not the one trying to define love here. In the end (after a few bad examples of what love isnt), you go on to say that true love is letting a person live their life as they choose and you are always there for them no matter what. If this is your true meaning of unconditional, true love and these are the only issues that make true love possible….i think you should rethink the matter as its alot more complex than that
    any feedback welcome, thanks.

  72. don’t fall in love,boz it will make ur life hellllllllllllllllllll ……….and u will suffer all the time so never ever go in this relation, boz as soon as u will fall in love ………………that love will hurt u all the rest of ur life………………………….. so love is nothing but another meaning of cheat, dishonest,disloyalty nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn its true……………………………

  73. Love is a genue felling u hav 4 sm1. N d care u hav 4 d person,even though d person offend u d luv is stil there 4 him

  74. love is life and my life is asif shokut ali and i can’t live without him i love you asifroma

  75. “once we love ourselves we can love someone else”love isn’t bought by know measure(money)or(desire to satisfy temporally)there’s a price you will pay wanting nothing exchange for joy to see one satisfied you should have. suffer together in sorrow/bitterness”love beyond were many want dwell to see one happy”when wrong do not help within’when right be not the opposite uplift but dwell in as within the same spirit’protect even if your life at stake but for the righteousness'(examples)”love cannot be measured.”

  76. my opinion is this
    Love- the thought of one person no one elts the feeling of butterfly’s and compassion one image going through you’re head over and over never able to get that one special person out of your head out of your memories out of your sight out of your hart you trust them with your hart not worried that they will drop it and shader your life into pieces with no one to put it back together because u love them and u know they wont drop it if they love u if they truly have u in there mind and HART :)

  77. The Human language is limited when it comes to describing emotions or a sense of being. Nice definition either way. Love to me is an essence, something you can’t validate through words but actions only. True or real love is always unconditional, there is no reason for it, no price to be paid, no possessions to be gained; you just do. Even when you’re upset, you can’t turn it off or make it disappear. If asked why do you love them…sometimes your only true answer is. I don’t know, I just do. That’s love…all else is just like.

  78. llove is . insan ki jarurat love ke sath insan happy rahana sikhta he

  79. love jarurat he har insan ki mother love father love brother love sister love childran “s love sab ek dusre se itan love karo ki hamse sab shikh le love is great

  80. love is pain,no docter can explain, it takes ur heart & efect on ur brain……

  81. True love !!!!!!does it really exit. Except with christ? Well ve never found one but now after going thru all these and in conjunction with what a friend always tell me, mAybe its because I don’t know the meaning
    Love…but now that I know that love true love has to be unconditional in all terms, I hope and pray to find someone thaT understands love just like I have now.

  82. love is something which is entirely inexplicable and cant be said about by anyone that what exactly it is…………….

  83. love is a special feelings n everybody didn’t feel it. those person were so lucky who were feel it n i m also lucky person. love is so pure, love means trust, caring, shearing, helping, good understanding, n must b love each other so much n etc, etc, etc,………… i really feel it………………….:)

  84. love is a great feeling u have for someone.If we read John 3;16
    For God so love the world that he gave his all begotten son that who so ever believes him will not die but have everlasting life.Amen

  85. When u really love someone u cant expect that there won be any burden on ur heart.

    Its true meaning of love…………

    and that’s love

  86. Don’t fall in love with a tennis player. For him LOVE means nothing =0 and so is for most self centered persons.

  87. I agree their are difference levels of love,and everyone define it differently,I also agree love is unconditional,and most love with conditions,very insightful information.

  88. love is friendship that has caught fire. it is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. it is loyalty through good and bad times. it settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weakness.love is content with the present, it hopes for the future, and it doesn’t brood over the past. it’s the days-in and days-out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, victories, and working toward common goals. p.s if you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things you lack. if you don’t have it, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough… just saying

  89. I think I agree with others about your statements on love being lacking. There is no love like the love of your child. You may have hopes and dreams and desires for your child but that doesnt take away the love. A person can love you and disagree with your views at the same time. Marriage is a covenant that God asks of a couple, and it can be a loving journey for two people but it takes work. God is capable of the perfect love you describe. But I think love is sooooo much bigger and beautifuler than you describe. And it’s not always up and it’s not always hearts and flowers, but it is a constant.

  90. There is a stirring in me that leads me to feel like only God truly loves unconditionally. If one is striving to be a God like person maybe they too can love unconditionally. I myself do love many people, even though I know they don’t feel the same for me. I haven’t always felt this way, something unexplainable, are should I say, something some people can’t wrap their minds around happened to me. I begin to yearn to be God like and my perspective of things changed. I begin to view people different as well as myself. In other words, it is my opinion that God is love and until one has a relationship with God, they will never understand the true meaning of LOVE.

  91. love is pain – no docter can explain – it takes ur heart & efect on ur brain…@@@

  92. Love is long- suffering and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag,it does not get puffed up, it does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all thiings. Love never fails. 1Cor.13:4-8.

  93. l thing love is a great feeling .if u love some one u can do every thing that what make feel him happy .u cant see teirs in his or her eyes if u love some one then autometicly your life become change .every thing becomes beautifull . love is so great feeling .

  94. You know in this world you see many people. and you see couples some stay together for a long time and even get married. well this day’s people fall in love easily and break each other hearts easily some people regret falling in love the first place. and some die for love i mean everybody know’s how it feel’s like to be in love or to fall in love. It’s like the best thing in the world. love is like something that is created on earth. there is eight letters 3 words and one meaning i love you is the word that many couples say to each other. love has a ring to it. well as for me love is not in my dictionary u probaly woundering why well i hate the word love i don’t even encourage it i have to tell yall the truth. I fell in love with someone the first time in my life and this person i adored them i apriciated them and also i loved them well one day they just decied that is the day to break my heart well i was rely strong wen they told me that they just wanna be friends and that rely touched me but hey i always knew that one time my heart was going to be broken. but anyways i went along with it i was smiling when they were telling me that to break up with me. but as soon as i got home i was busting out crying i was not happy at all. i did not even want to talk to anyone. so me and that person we havent talk for a long period of time. i had friends that helped me through i got over it in the outside but not in the inside. well i can’t tell you the rest i have to keep it in my heart it’s a memory of the person. but u got to know what u wanted to know and thas all that matterd.

  95. mmmmm, food for though.
    My feeling is that it is never the word, but rather the ideals and beliefs that the individual has of the word that is the generator of the experience.
    I believe that love is a certain thing, and then it is an or has to become a certain thing in order for it to qualify as love in my mind.
    True love is an experience that occurs in the heart of the self … it cannot be given to anyone, it is a totally selfish experience in the heart. WHen one has this experience then one nolonger seeks it from an outside source, because it is ever present within, and can be continually acessed infinitly. I wonder what the world would be like if we all had such an experience of love .

  96. instantly loss himself are love ,
    please, say anyone how we find my love

  97. you are wright about soming that no one will kno it until he or she try it?

  98. My belief is that the interpretation of love starts from the spirit and extends in to the subconscious, then expels into the conscious state of mind through emotion. Once or emotional state of mind begins to articulate a constructive view of emotion, called feeli
    ngs. Then we as civilized people begin the process of attaching a heart felt feeling of emotion and what we describe as love. Most use the word or phrase love as a sexual attachment or strong affection for another. Love is profound and extremely complexed, for instance I love that I have all my senses. I love that all my body parts function. I love the sounds of nature. I love when my favorite teams wins. My only question, is it love or simply gratification ?.

  99. Love is actually the feeling but not own.It means to care for someone more than us ,Understanding the words without actually saying.Love doesn’t means to express it can be depicted from eyes.

  100. Wow I read this article and it is sad but true. Many people may never experience love in the true sense as you described. I sure am glad that I found it. True love is the most powerful feeling I have ever had and when I think of the ones I love I get an overwhelming feeling in my soul of supreme bliss.

  101. love is a kind of sacrifice. So many people like romeo,majnu etc. So many people had sacrifice their love and stand in the history .Their love is truely unconditional when compair to there generation .we are using love for sake of enjoyment .

  102. Love is a feeling that not everyone fells till they acc meet the person that they have been waiting for but how do people know that person that they have been waiting for Is acc the person that they have been waiting for then that is the time that love is show

  103. Because I no watt love fells like and it is amazing but I do watt mistakes I have made I and I regret them but you have to learn from them and try and not to make them same mistake over again :-)

  104. How do you put a feeling into words. I understand the point you try to make and it is hard to make that point. To be without that person and not care what you have to do even at risk of death to get that person back. You know that they are wanting you more than life it’s self (if this is something that you can feel)Then you just might know real love. Maybe.

  105. You all make just the idea of love soo complicated….soo sad…. Why? Love is the most simple expeience yu can encounter. Love makes you believe you have a real purpose on this earth. If you love someone you can explain in great details the way you feel. Everyone could experience unconditional love. The real problem is in order to love someone else unconditionally you have to love yourself first. God has given us the power to love 100%. Yes 100%

  106. There was some thing really called love and it was only now it’s still there but the thinking off humans changed it to comfort ness and as a job were one gets one and thinks for better these can only be compared with instruments not with humans

  107. mmmm….for me,love is the feeling of two pepole that are making in-love each other..then they got marriage to have some babies to make luull with their childrens…bahala dinyu an di nyu maintindi..baloktot kc eeehh….hak :)
    naw dna as thank you

  113. For those that believe. This comes from the I have condenses in the will to journey to your destiny. May love in brace you, peace in fold you life will give you joy. This comes from one that walks like an angle searching for the love of his life.

  114. I do not believe that there is such a thing as ‘The Meanign of Love.’ It all boils down to what we share with the person, and how you feel when they not around. Society seems to make you think and feel with is called ‘The Correct Way.’ What is the correct way???????????????? YOUR WAY!!! I am only 24, and refuse to bow down to society when it comes to the matter of your heart… Love does not last forever, but you learn from it… Well I sure did. Emotions are a funny thing, and can never be simplified in words, just actions.

  115. … THANK YOU SO MUCH for the blog, it helped alot.. evn though i came jst for my school work but now i no othr stuff aswell.. <3

  116. I found my love, i will sacrifice everything for her, i do not expect anything from her i don’t get jealous of her spending time with anyone else i don’t even want sexual intercourse it’s not required. I will give up everything i own just to spend 1 second with her. She is amazing and I really do Love her to bits.

  117. I think that love is when someone protects someone and never ever leaves them or abandons them no matter what and that the person will make sure anyone who hurts the person they love will never hurt the person again.

  118. love is like a flower.give it some time,patiece and lots of tender loving care,and watch it bloom into something wonderful before your eyes…….

  119. i am so pleased to see this article. i have been married 3 times. i guess in every occasion i felt love, yet later reality kicks in, what is true love ? this article sums it up, true love is about caring about accepting about trust. what has been written is food for thought. thanx

  120. love beautiful gift of god but in sanario maximum peopel like young generation is not uanderstand that what is love .

  121. this is true i love someone i really do they r all i can think about nd we r ment for each other ugh but i odnt see them love hurts i cant get over him i cant how do u get over them one you love u cant in my book

  122. when we r in good mood n gud terms.. love is good feelings….. same opp way love is MIND SET its very simple. nothing grate as well great
    .

  123. about love, books and advice may implication on the current mind set. later on writer them self confuse and they cheat them self. better love somebody n feel when u will get the feelings. forget everthing when loves goes out of ur mind. this is the fact everbody is liveing today..life

  124. love in nothing but basically its all about attraction. Now a days their is no word like true love because no one is indulge in true love, some one love a girl/boy because of his/her beauty, face, fairness, voice, figure, etc., someone love their parents because of money, home, food, reputation, etc., everyone love their god because of begging, fear,etc. so their is nothing called love from my point of view.

    thank you

  125. it was when i get married that i realize what love is all about. My husband always cheat on me but i always over look it because i love him unconditionally. but true love is not easy!

  126. i think so every human can love unconditionally but if they want.so try to love dont like…. everybody says they love each other but my question is are they really love each other ask to ur heart not to MIND… i really feel so……………..
