Love As Defined By a Nine Year Old
I surveyed a handful of nine year old kids on the subject of love. I simply asked the question, "What does 'love' mean to you?" The results are as follows:
Q. What does "love" mean to you?
A. It is nice and eww at the same time. And feels weird and tingly.
A. I think it means things like friendship and happiness and peace. Also when you create a bond with someone.
A. It means to me that someone is sweet to you, respectful and just loves you.
A. You die of heart break or spend the rest of your [life] doing love stuff and spending money for flowers for your wife.
A. It's nice and it is who you are most comfortable with.
A. When you feel happy all the time when you're with them.
A. I think that love means 3 things that are
1. That you think that person is great.
2. That you want to be with them because they are kind to you.
3. That you want to be with them and want to protect them and care about them.
I must admit that though these are comical, it's nonetheless amusing how mature some of the responses are. Regardless, hope you were entertained!
(Side note: the two kids in the photograph above are not nine and did not participate in the survey. They are, however, my little brother and sister and I couldn't help it but to inculde them in this hub.)
