"Love is a Mood?"

Could love, to love someone, or being in love,
be considered a mood?

And like all moods, it never stays the same,
forever changing.

Happiness is a mood,
and no one can stay happy forever.
(Hell, not even for very long.)

Can no one stay in love forever?
What about unconditional love?

To love someone unconditionally, no matter what,
is this a constant mood, unchanging?

It would perhaps be,
the only one.

You love someone today you hate them tomorrow! In actuality you never stop loving someone you truly love. Even when a mood swing prematurely tells you that you hate whomever because of a certain action or occurrence! Unconditional love never settles! It lasts forever and can even grow throughout the course of time in my opinion!

yes but it makes you think. its something to wonder, as love can forever change, we fall in and out of love, so unless we love someone unconditionally, our mood can change at any given moment, we can stop loving someone, at least in the same way, we can become unnattracted to someone, we can become bored, we can start to hate that person, perhaps he isnt the person you thought, so on and so on, sometimes we learn that we never really loved that person at all, or loved but never was in love. if we can call it a mood or not, we can definitely agree that love is forever changing, whether becoming weaker or stronger, or perhaps we just arent in a loving mood, we are in a "i dont want anything to do with you mood", deep down we still have love for this person, but at the moment your mood is telling you you dont. or doubting your feelings. sometimes we just hold on to that mood , hold on to love like a depression, when it really is no good for us, and sometimes we push love away, because we're scared, because it is good for us and we dont know how to handle that because for some reason we tend to want things that arent good for us, or experience has taught us that we end up getting hurt. Some say you cant choose who you love, it just happens, or u cant make yourself love somone, but sometimes I think you can, if you are forced into a situation where u have to , you eventually can learn to love a person. could we call that changing our mood about that person? how we see him/her. Depending on circumstances we decide instead of hating this person or viewing him negatively, i am going to try and love him, at least like him, and get to know him. sometimes we stay with a person because its comfortable and safe, sure we love him but we often wonder what else is out there? but too afraid to hurt the person we're with and too afraid to start anything new, afraid of getting hurt, afraid no one else will love us the same. so perhaps love can be considered a mood, or perhaps it just triggers lots of other moods both negative and positive, while being in the state of love... I am going to add the definitions to this hub...and you decide for yourself.

Well my dear Nikki.. on a thoughtful hunt using words to try to find out what we all seek .. where is the feelings that always betray us when we need them most .. are they just flights of fancy or real .. ?

Moods ,Well , I have something to admit , infatuations ! Crushes , whatever you wish to call them , happen to me occasionally, I mean every couple of years or more , I fall for someone ! Care to explain ?........:-}

Matters of the heart are never easily explained. We all long for love and finding someone to grow old with and to be happy with. Of course youre gonna always meet someone new and fall for them if you dont stick with the previous one or if things dont workout , cuz as our moods change so does theirs and sometimes our moods just dont work well together even if they once did. anywho so unless you try and try again til you find someone whos mood suits your mood to a t no matter how much it changes, then you live alone and lonely with no one to love, or love yu back.

Yet -Nikki , The "moods " of love are short lived ! As a young person ,and I too was there ! , " Moods " of love are fleeting ! AND give no semblance to real love ! Real love is when the infatuation , the crush , the interim of relations is in effect !
