Let’s get down to the nitty gritty about love.

1. There’s a difference between attraction and love.

2. Love is not something you win like luck in a lottery.

3. Lasting love can endure a great deal, and most often has to.

4. Love can be exciting, and is meant to be.

5. There is no such thing as “almost love” or “half a love.”

6. Love is something that needs constant renewal to keep its shine.

7. Love separated from its loved one is sadness with anticipation.

8. Shared values make a wonderful foundation for love.

9. Love grows as it is given, the more it is given the faster it grows.

10. Being yourself is the first step to finding a lasting love.

11. Love can overlook many faults because it is understanding.

12. Love is based on all aspects of togetherness.

13. Real love is a mutual giving and sharing, willing and often.

14. Love is fragile but self-healing given half a chance.

15. Love is forgiveness waiting to be used.

16. Love is the “No.” that replaces a wrong “Yes.”

17. True love is sacrifice with a capital “S”.

18. True love is made up of miracles anxious to happen and be shared

19. Love would sacrifice all for the other.

20. Love inspires loyalty but cannot guarantee it.

21. Love is the hug that lasts.

22. Love that is not growing is dying.

Dee42: I thought I had already replied that men might benefit from reading such thoughts every day, but I must have neglected to click "Post Cpomment". Thanks for your feedback.

Angie Jardine: I'm so glad this is sounding a harmonic note with so many Hubbers and others. One way or another we spend much of our lives centered around love and its consequences. To the extent we can understand it better, we have a better grip on life and living, love and loving. Thanks again for commenting.

Perhaps it should also be said that "Love is sharing with a purpose."
