Recently I've been writing a great deal on the topic of love. I've been inspired to hear from many who relate and are in love.
If you're in love give a shout out providing evidence that love does exist and is amazing to those who are still in waiting and wondering about love. Is True love, Falling in love and staying in love indeed fact of fiction?
Read This Hub called: 'This Sensuous Language of Love' and decide if love exists throughout life or not.
I don't mean to self promote... but I did intend to answer your question.... and this should help with your answer.
Not fiction at all, as some others on here have said, too!
And I agree that really, REALLY falling in love means you never fall "out" of it.
I've told my story many times on here, so I won't get into it again, lol, but 22 years after marrying my husband(hubber Tom Cornett), we still love each other so much...and he still makes me turn to jelly inside when he smiles at me...
And we've never, ever raised out voices in anger at each other, in all those years--and that's something we're very proud of.
I'm not presently in love with anyone, but I still feel love for people. The reason I'm not in love with anyone is because I'm single.
A while back I wrote a short hub about "What Is Love?", to answer Mighty Mom's question in the questions section. Quite a few people took on that task, so I had to make the URL about the "emotion". That just means, my title isn't exactly "What is love?", but "What is the emotion Love?".
I'm more incline to remember when I was "in" love with someone is a very unique feeling and it was never a miss when we were together. People always say that you fall in and out of love, and from my experience, I wouldn't call it true love. I would call it a misunderstanding of the emotion.
But, then again, I would also think that the feeling and people's understanding would vary from person to person, because of many reasons, (a) wisdom, (b)knowledge(education) and (c)experiences.
Just my thoughts on it.
My heart has been pretty smashed up in failed relationships, but I do believe in love. I think we have to become what we seek. We can't depend on another person to become what we seek until we are willing to become exactly that. And so, we become the answer to our problem, but in so doing, I think we attract other like-minded people, and when a romance blooms, it does seem to be satisfying. How far it will go we can't determine. There is only here and now.
As a result, I've met a lot of fascinating people because I've tried to be open to love all along. But for now, I'm single, and enjoying that part. Perhaps a romantic love will happen again. I don't really know. But I'm happy becoming what I seek, and it feels right for me.
Falling in love and out of love is a funny thought to me.. You either love a person or don't.
If you love a person, it is a commitment for life, so you go all out to make it work..
The question of falling (LOL)out does not arise at all.
There are good times and difficult times and we just need to work through the tough ones.
I am in love, have been for the last almost twenty years and the love and respect that we have had for each other just grows day after day...because we work hard at loving each other!
I have written a poem on our love 'Valentine's day - Its been two decades now!' It may let you lots more...
You can not fall in love and get out of it! Once that happens it means it was anything but love. Love is one aspect that combines the body, mind and the soul. You might fall in love and then part ways but the imprints last for a life time.
The unfortunate part of falling in love or to be more decent 'being in love', is that it takes two to tangle. In most cases love does not make appointments. That we are always ready and know what to expect. So because of this we always "grow" in love.
During this time of "growth", that when we find out whether we are compatible or not. In most cases we are not, and that is when we part ways or compromise. In the 2nd category of rejection we try to "keep faces." Which is why most couples are more of "friends" than "lovers."
Does love exist? Yes, it does but only in the 'heat of a moment.'
Am I In Love? Yes. It is something I practice everyday.
I don't know that true love is falling in love and staying in love. My emotions change about as fast as the weather in Wyoming, so I would never trust them to tell me anything of importance.
I think true love has more to do with a decision to treat the other person right and to act in a loving manner.
I saw a quote that summarized how I feel about things, it said "You know you're happily married if your worst day with your spouse is better than your best day without them."
"True love is when you put the other person's wants, needs, and feelings before your own. True love is putting the other person first."
I think it comes down to relationships. how we feel about ourselves is often reflected in how we treat others and how others treat us. maybe it's not so much about falling in or out of 'love', but changing how we think about ourselves? if someone says, I don't love him anymore, I think it's more, I don't love how I feel when I'm with him anymore. I think sometimes we confuse love with relationships. we can have relationships without love, but we can't have love without relating to someone or life itself.
this past weekend was my son's wedding and his father in law was giving advice in his father of the bride toast, I thought it was beautiful,

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...
