    Actually, I want to know...which one is the real love? Parent's love or girlfriend's love or both?

      Well the reason why I'm answering this question is because I have a son and we are very close like peanut butter and jelly.  When you are adult and you have a girlfriend and you love her very much.  There come a time in your life you have to cleave from your parents and be your own person. Still love your parents unconditonally, but also if the relationship with your girlfriend is getting warm it time for the word unconditionally to be introduce. Treat her just like family as well.

      it both love could be the real deal it depends upon you girlfriend though but i believe that your parents love is more genuine why because of three reasons:
              they made you
              they know you before your girlfriend did
              and your girlfriend might leave you but your family will always be there for you,you are tied to them flesh and blood you are a part of them, a child no matter how old can be assured of parents love.

    They are different forms of love, like grapes and wine are different forms of a fruit. One is based in biological imperatives, hormonal responses and the joy of discovery. The other is based in trust, tradition and shared history.

    A gradual transition from the former to the latter can occur, but that transition is neither certain nor uniformly linear.

      Often with time in the case of a man the emotions for mum transfers to the wife/partner. So girls don't get jealous of his mum. If he loves her and doesn't look after her he will not look after you too.

    In some mountainous regions of the deep south.. the answer can be 'both at the same time'

    I had always thought you should love your parents the most in life before anyone else until I heard this psychologist speak one time. He said that you are the one who chooses your partner and you are choosing someone to be with for the rest of your life. This person is supposed to come before everyone else in your life (including your parents and children) because when everyone else is gone (your parents pass away and your children grow up and have their own families) your partner is the one who is still there with you. Therefore, you should love your partner the most.

    That's a tough question to answer. However, if you have a good parent, I think nothing compares to the faithfulness and loyalty of a parent's love. My dad is gone now, but my mom is still alive. She is my best friend, and I love her more than anyone else in the world.

    In general, it is the love of one's parents. Girlfriends and boyfriends aren't always permanent - they may come and go through one's lifetime, but the love of one's parents is usually permanent. I don't believe one should relegate parents.

    Ideally, you should love both equally. However, the love of a good parent is usually the longer-lasting, comforting, selfless love. Overlook and neglect the love of such a parent to your own peril.
