    real love is having that one special someone to call your own. the person you can look at everyday and just smile, kiss them. Love is a really hard thing to explain because its a different feeling for different people.

      Yeah this "real love" only appears in fairy tales or just in rare cases.

      love is defined differently for eveyone, for sure. I think real love, isn't always about romance. Love between parents and children. Love for a good friend, that makes you stop everything and spend the night listening to thier problems.  or the kind of love that makes people open up thier homes to strangers during some kind of natural crisis. Love for your pet and love for you own self. All of them are real.

      I wrote a hub about the emotion known as love. There are differences in the emotion and should be understood. Love isn't as complex as people make it out to be and half the time, people only repeat what others have said in the past about it.

      Understanding love is only a need for when the emotion fills you up, however, if you live everyday with some form of love, then you can easily notice the differences and explain them.

      Does "real" love exist? This is a pathetic misconception. The truth of the matter is there are three ways to love -(a) friends and family, (b) love for yourself and (c) love for others(outside family and friends/partners/lovers).

      The subtle differences are the intense pull each has on oneself. The problem is people mistake loving someone and being "in" love, which leads to disaster.

      Just my thoughts on it. smile

      Real love is a give and take process. Sharing of thoughts and ideas, open to solutions to problems, comfort each other when one is in trouble and always cares all the time to his/her partner.

      That's the way how I define Real Love.

    real love is a choice, not a feeling. The feeling is intense infatuation which is called euphoria. It is caused by hormonal chemicals released from the brain. It happens when you start to think to yourself that you really like the person you have met, and you know that they like you back.

    That feeling fades well over time, and the only way to keep it is to choose to. Choosing to love a person more than yourself is what real love is. It's not accidental, it is work.

    I think real love is also about you loving yourself, being at peace with yourself, and becoming the person that you seek. You become your own answers to your own questions and problems, and you'll attract people who are like-minded.

    Spread the love.

    I don't really think "real love" is about "having someone to call your own" because that's about what you get out of the deal (and even though the words may just not be the best choice of words, "calling your own" is kind of creepy and lacking in respect for the other person.  lol)

    I once read that real love always has to include both admiration of, and respect for, the other person.  Other than that, I think it's about how you feel when you're with the person, how you feel when you're not, and about what you want to bring to their happiness and life.

    If it's romantic love, there also has to be a certain chemistry factor.
