    what is love? baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more...wooooahh ooooh woaaahhhoo owoah!

    I completely and fully disagree with your take on Love, btw...but I'm a happily married man to the love of my life who happens to be my high-school sweetheart so, perhaps take my optimism towards love with a grain of salt?

      That song is EXACTLY what came to mind when I read the title of this thread.  I thought it was going to be a discussion about Haddaway.  Oh well.

    The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it.  You and you alone make me feel that I am alive.  Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.  ~George Moore

    I like this one..

    I'm very single and unlucky with me...dare I say repel them

    But a firm believer in love.

    Love is a many splendid thing after all.

    L-life. For what is living without loving, whether it be family, friends or a man/woman....

    O-Openness. Intimacy on every level. Being fully open. No secrets.

    V-verging on flight. The only emotion that can truly seep you off your feet and take up...air miles.

    E- every emotion you could think of amplified- because sometimes love hurts, but that's OK.

    Love is love and I lurve it!

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails....And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.

    Admiration, affection,fondness, desire............
    A burning in your heart often likened to fire,
    Cosiness, happiness, feeling carefree....
    Does it happen to you, does it happen to me?????
    Feeling secure, so warm to the touch...
    The dictionary, leaves out -
    It hurts so much...........

    Love is a miracle. it does not happen to everybody but everybody deserves that. If you have it - cherish it, it may not last. You world will be empty like a sea-shell without it.

    Entering into the depths of hell, just because the person you love may be willing to take your hand and start to move upwards again.

      OK, got to move on (2 another post)...getting too deep for me in here LOL.
      Seriously, don't agree, but deep nonetheless.

      Love to me is many things: usually unsuspected. Frequently unwanted. Too often neglected. And far too often simulated. Sometimes stimulated. And rarely educated (rarely can you read about love and understand it).

      Sadly, often manipulated or truncated. Humorously, replicated. Sometimes initiated. Passionately debated. Fortunately or un-...finances, 'lifestyle', and stability: unrelated.

        Love for stereotypical men: "She's so beautiful!"

        Love for stereotypical women: "He makes me feel so good!"

        Love beyond the stereotypes: "I can be myself with this person and feel completely accepted."
