      Confused? Stop looking for the answer to this question. No answer. Keep your mind open.  Wait. I was looking  for 25 years. So when I stopped looking, stopped trying, stopped judging... there it was. You will get the answer, you will meet the person. Don't be afraid to experiment. Focus on     other things. There is time for everything, you will know. Everything happens for a reason. Don't be afraid to fail, to fall...Go for whatever feels wright. God knows what we need. If you haven't found the one yet, you are not ready. Be patient. "All good things for those who wait!".

    I do.   Like Goethe said "We are shaped and fashioned by what we love."    What do you love?

    I believe love takes a lot of work.  I love my girlfriend will all of my heard, but she is hard to get along with some of the time.  I am sure I am the same way for her.  I don't believe that people can just be in love and never have any problems.

    I do believe in love and everything that goes with it. We can't really measure love, but we have to be very open minded to know what love is all about. Love is like life, so vast in its meaning.

    I believe love exists, but I don't know that it conquers all. I have seen too many couples break up when they really both still loved one another. It sucks when that happens.

    I definitely believe in love. I don't mean it always works out, or that it always has a 'happily ever after' at the end. But when I say I love somebody or something, I truly mean it, at least for that moment. After all, what about life isn't momentary? If you find that your love for whatever it is lasts, then that's beautiful, and that's lucky, but I wouldn't give up on love if it didn't last. For me, that one moment could be pure, perfect love, and that's what I believe in.
    I also think that love has a very close connection with happiness. That's why, if I have one perfectly happy moment, it will strengthen my belief in love.
    I don't know if this makes sense or if I've explained my point properly, but yeah. I'm a believer.

    I guess I'm with the majority here-- I believe in love. Always have. I've seen it, I've felt it, and I've seen what it can do to people when it's not returned. It's a powerful feeling.

    I was just thinking about this really....very good question. I just wrote an article today about this:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/whattheheckislove

    I tried to throw out most of my thoughts on the subject...love is very interesting and I'm currently trying to figure out what it is myself...is it just a psychological thing? just lust disguised to look good? spiritual? not sure....check out my hub if ya can and maybe comment based on my post. great topic of discussion.

    I dont think anybody will ever give you a full answer to the question...however, each individual may still provide a personal interpretation which makes the question all the more beautiful.

    I wonder if most people here believe in love because they're writers. Writers tend to be romantics. wink

    It's true, a lot of writers are romantics. I mean you have the super cynical I-hate-the-world sarcasm people, but you know that in their heart of hearts they believe in love. And, you know, elves and the tooth fairy. We're writers, we have imaginations, and we're romantics to the core!

    Love is perhaps one of the strongest forces the Universe has ever known.  Love creates, love binds, love can even destroy in its negative aspects.  Love is one of the things most worth living for; otherwise, how would we care for our families, our friends, and all of those we come in contact with?  Love.

    Do I believe in love?  YES!!!!!

      Hi Pagan,

      When you say "love can even destroy in its negative aspects"
      do you mean jealousy?

    While we'er on the topic of believing in love....i was wondering how people use the word itself. Do you just tell everyone you know you love them, are you more reserved, etc etc?

    Good question. I used to be very very very reserved about it (I'm one of those 'letting people know how I feel makes me feel vulnerable' people), but lately I've tried to say it to my parents more often. With my boyfriend, it's a whole other story. Sometimes we can't stop saying it to each other, but we don't just say it coz it's a habit. We definitely mean it every time we say it.

    Basically, I don't throw the word around a lot. But I say it enough for people to know that it's there.

    I do not only believe in love, I experience it everyday in my life. I love my mate, my family, my nephew who passed away at 18, my friends, even online friends I have never met face to face.  Love has different expressions, but its the same God force.

      I think you have a wrong scale,wrong way to measure  and wrong measures.

  25. wpagnew profile image60
    wpagnewposted 8 years ago

    First you must define love -

    1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. 
    2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend. 
    3. sexual passion or desire. 
    4. a person toward whom love is felt; beloved person; sweetheart. 
    5. (used in direct address as a term of endearment, affection, or the like): Would you like to see a movie, love? 
    6. a love affair; an intensely amorous incident; amour. 
    7. sexual intercourse; copulation. 
    8

    This is the problem...people often connect visuals/actions to love. Notice in the definition there is no mention of Marrige - Commitment - Honesty - Monogamy..etc. Yet we measure love against these things all the time. 

    "They've been married for 20years they must really love each other....if only they new.

    Theres a very thin line between Love and Infatuation..and people often get it confused...Look again at the difenition...There nothing that must happen before you feel this way...It's a feeling if anything and to ask if you believe in love is to ask do you belive in what you feel and that should always be yes...which might not be the best thing for you necessarily.

  26. Ana Louis profile image82
    Ana Louisposted 8 years ago

    Love is real but it has many layers.  Websters says that love is a noun, but so often we use it as an adjective...to describe how we feel about someting or someone, which may or may not be true love, but rather a passing affection or a strong likeing.  True love, the kind of love that exist in marriage, or between parents and children, brothers and sisters, or best friends, is a verb.  True love is the action of putting another ahead of yourself, your willingness to sacrifice all that you have, even your life for another.  True love is humble and is able to see past anothers faults...accepting the other person for who they are, and treating the other person with respect, consideration, and gratitude.  True love is not about you - it is about the person you love.

    The expression "love is never having to say you're sorry,"  is wrong.  If you truly love someone, you always say you are sorry.

    This kind of love is the secret to a successful and happy relationship. When both people apply love as a verb, both are fullfilled and recieve equally.  And the magic of true love, when   given and recieved by two people creates perpetual motion.

    When my children would say "I love you," I would often respond by saying, "I appreciate that you tell me you love me, but words mean nothing if your actions don't back them up. I would much rather you show me that you love me, than tell me you love me."

    I'm probably getting carried away here so I' ll stop now.  Did any of this make sense?

    I don't think I do.  I believed in past but now as I grow up I slowly starting to know that there is not such a thing as love. Yes you have affection for your loved ones but it's not love. I've seen people who fll in love and stayed together for 30- 40 years and all of a sudden they stopped loving each other??  how can that be love??? its only fantasy. People try to copy it from movies and soaps and even though most of ppl here do believe in love, i know they are not 100% sure.
