Or have most people gone back to the feudalistic medieval mindset: that marriage is purely for the procurement and protection of property?
I have seen so many people hide from their emotions because they are afraid of rejection. And then there's me, hiding from my emotions out of fear of success.
i believe in true love. the only problem is unlike the movies, true love is extremely rare and hard to find. in fact, most people rarely ever find it, where as a lucky few do. of course, i guess that's what makes love so special i guess, as it's rare.
I definitely still believe in true love - which I'm guessing means that at 48 years old I will probably be walking that road by myself for awhile. I've been married, in long and short term relationships - all of which ended up empty. I feel like I keep attracting the same type of person with a different face, which makes me wonder what it is about me that's making that happen.
True love is alive and well I can assure you of that!
I believe in true love - a bit late in life, and I needed someone half my age to show me AND explain how it works.
Hiding from your emotions for any reason is a good idea if you are unsure of yourself - because love is about showing everything.
Hi Jonathan, I suppose do not believe in true love. Because I don't understand any emotion or feeling is ever without doubt or can be swayed.
I believe strongly in love though buddy. At 44 I accept and embrace there are so many forms of love. What a blessing we have within each other.
I say poop on true love and thank you so much people for gifting me with receiving and giving so many different wonderful lessons in love which can only grow or move on, either way how much more enriched we are from feeling it
Have a great night Jonathan
btw pleasure to meet you
<edit> I'm allowed to mess up I am 35, 000 feet in the air
edit to true love where pure someone hacked in
Nice pic. Actually, I do believe in true love. I guess what I don't believe in is myself. Sad, isn't it? Especially because many people other than myself do believe in me, and some of these people have shown me that I can do amazing things under the right circumstances.
Not sad Jonathon. Just a moment you have paused on your path. I believe one that will lead you to understand what love means to you. What we think, at the end of the day, s irrelevant, believe. But take this time ti just be open to accepting your worthy of being happy, everyone is. Been there, so tough lonely and confusing, hang on and when your not looking
your answers will hint at some clarity. I will not tell you to believe in yourself, I am no one to say this, but I will fucking say hang on to the vision of what you want to release to be OK
hang with me, guaranteed to self destruct
OK so help me
someone define true love
different levels of variations of this love? Which is true?
What is TRUE love? A state of mind is my guess. Maybe also because I have loved many ways, all a path in my life, all good., make sense? No? hmmm
I want to believe, but no point in believing in something that doesn't exist.
I fell in love with a guy 13 years younger than I many years ago.
We are still together, even though EVERYONE said I was absolutely out of my mind.
He is the light of my life-and we fell head over heels the first time we set eyes on each other. Don't let anyone say it can't happen!!!!!!!!!!!
I do believe in true love and I have lived with him for a little less than twenty years of my life...True love is not an emotion or a fancy ideal, it is a relationship that you have to work at to make it work for you...It is a lot of work I can tell you but worth every bit of it!! Best wishes to you!
Certainly yes.. True love exist , the awkward thing was that when a person is truelyly in love with a person these feelings are often ignored or trashed. I agree that true love is an elusive thing
Thank you all for the encouragement. I appreciate the heartfelt advice. I suppose I've been feeling a little victimized lately.
Do believe in it, yes - but more than a year on from my separation, it continues to pain me every second, of every minute, of every day, as I found out it was a one way feeling.
Would never again so much as contemplate taking the risk of a relationship, so if you are happily single, do the sensible thing and stay that way!!
Gordon, thank you for sharing. I am sorry to see you are so heartbroken.
well, if it's not true, it probably isn't love.
it's not the fairytale stuff. love can be for a 'season'
I guess.. I think we have a lot of responsibility in making it true love.
You know how they say you know it when you find it? Well I have become a believer and was once a very pessimistic person on the idea of finding 'it', but I was hell bent on trying.
And here I am head over heels for a woman who is head over heels for me, she's perfect...in every facet, she's kind, caring, loving, compassionate, funny, witty, smart, down to earth she has it all and I can't believe it. The best part about it is that she can't believe she's met me either, she never thought that she'd meet someone to take her flowers to work or just to send her a text telling her how beautiful she is.
Just remember love is an act not a feeling, so when you meet that person that makes your knees tremble make sure you show it to them when and wherever possible.
It exists man just don't rush it. It will happen when and where you least expect it...trust me that was the best Meatball sub I have ever ordered...
I do believe in true love. It exists. My parents proved it to me being married over 35 years and still keeping romance in their relationships.
Love doesn't exist, that's what I'm trying to tell you guys. And I'm not picking on love, 'cause I don't think friendship exists either.
Sorry, stole that line from Wedding Crashers.

I believe in true love.. Do you? I have met my match 12 years back and am married to him. Have you recognized your true love?

I recently realized that true love might just not exist at all. The feeling of love is momentary, i.e. what you feel at that particulart point of time... Nothing is same after a lapse of time, or rather we are no...
