What is your definition of LOVE in a relationship?

    Is love really selfless...? Meaning will you give it all in a relationship? Or should we have some reservations .. so called to safeguard ourselves.

    In a relationship, is 'to love' better OR 'to be loved' better?
    (ideally, of course, it should be mutual love for each other)

    Possible to be in love with two persons at the same time?

      Being in love is a choice, not an emotion. Lust is an emotion.

    Love is when you feel crushed when there's sadness in your partner's eyes.  Love is when you'd rather chew off your arm rather than say something that would make her cry.  Love is when you find out that she has spent all day figuring out a way to make you like easier.

      I agree.

    I must differ with Urias.  If you are with your loved one through good and hard times and you feel a rush when she smiles and heartbreak when she cries.  That is emotion with your clothes on.

    There is love and there is just passion.
    Passion is strong, burns like the sun but ends up quickly.

    Love is friendship, is caring about someone, is to consider the one you love your best friend, to tell him everything, wanting to share you desert with him...

    Is feeling good at night just talking, or on each other's arms without sex.
    Love is jump in his neck as soon as he walks through the door coming from work.

    Love is when you find yourself hugging him in the middle of the supermarket, dancing and smiling don't acknowledging the rest of the world.

    Love is having proud of your loved one and vanity, is enjoying your girlfriends compliments about your husband, how pretty and nice he his.

    But without friendship Love will not survive, friendship and trust and also respect....

    Love is not enough. You have to give your loved one what she needs, what makes her happy. smile

    Love never fails, it puts a cloak over all difficulties and helps sort them out

    Personally, I feel that love is born out of a mutual trust, respect, and joy in each other's company. You take the person you love as they are without wishing to change them, and the worst days with them are always better than the best days without them.

      Absence makes the heart grows fonder...isn't not?

    I believe that Love is a doing thing. When love is mutual it is born of mutual caring. Doing the dishes or making dinner for your loved one is real honest love.

      Amen! I have to say that for all the romantic things my other half can do, it makes me feel just as good (if not better) to walk into the kitchen and see the garbage always emptied, the dishes always done, and the counters always clean.

      Yes, many of my friends want him to hire himself out as a personal husband trainer tongue

        I'm not surprised! My twenty year old just rang me. He reckons the modern young guys are on to it!Your husband is smart, he knows the way to a girls heart is to show her that he wants to lighten her load.That is true love!

          Good, I'm glad some of the modern young guys are catching on! I was beginning to fear for the continuation of the species wink. Personally, I finally gave up on my own age group...the vast majority of males do not grow up until well past the early 20s.

    Love in my relationship is bringing out the best in each other. It is being the best version of yourself because you are with that person.

    I think that being in love, and being love are the best feelings in the world. I'm not sure if I could pick one as better than the other, or more important.

    In love with two people? I think it is possible. In the sense that if your love passes away and you remarry, definitely.

    If you have it, you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.

      It's the sense of belonging... when we are being loved.

    You can measure the degree of love someone has for you by how much they're willing to sacrifice in your behalf.
