What is True Love?

    Two things:

    1. It's considered bad form on here to post a thread solely for the purpose of publicising your hubs (unless you want them to be given a thorough critique, in which case post a link to them in the "Extreme Hub Makeover" section).

    2. It's really annoying when you spam us with several identical forum threads.

    If you want people to read your stuff, try acting like a real person and talk to them in whatever thread(s) grab your interest.

    After 3 years? Funny how the only pictures he has of her are all from the Find a Grave site. Pardon me for being skeptical.

    I thought we weren't allowed to do forum posts that promote our hub?  (looking over at the left hand side with the rule, lol).
    As to what is true love...?  True love is a mix of physical and chemical and emotional attractions that mixes with a dash of fate to bring two souls together.

    oooh, that sounded smarmy, lol! wink

    True love is him loving me through my darkest depressions and my wildest, most out-of-control manias.

    True love is him paying endless medical bills without a word of complaint, or paying off credit card bills that I ran up on a manic spree.

    True love is him standing suicide watch when his life would be so much easier with me gone.

    True love is him still wanting me when I've been too depressed to bathe ...

    True love is him standing proudly by my side in public and not being afraid of what I might say or do to embarrass him.

    True love is him coming home after a long, hard day's work and having to make the supper, do the housework, and take care of the animals because I couldn't muster the energy or the motivation to get out of bed.

    True love is him listening to my manic ramblings with loving patience and taking me seriously, and offering sane advice and guidance.

    True love is him encouraging me at my best, and tolerating me at my worst, and still being there when the latter far outweighs the former.

      A flower opens to the sky
      and broadcasts its scent.

      The light makes a montage
      in panorama’s delight.

      The lake refreshes with coolness
      in contrast to the heat's swelter.

      Love is not of senses because it is
      a little more abstract.

      It is felt yet we cannot touch it or see it
      as it marries itself with our love of our self.

      Beauty once set our imagination
      in desire with wishes for love.

      Yet love molds itself inside
      and creates beauty as it grows.

      The flower moves with the wind
      but disappears when the sun sets.

      Love grows through mutual intent
      and desire to share life.

      @ brenren57 - You are, for sure, fortunate. I envy those who receive this and admire those who 'supply' this. But I have noticed that 'receivers' of true love are seldom cabable of being 'suppliers' of true love, and that the latter secretly struggle with feelings of not being appreciated but taken for granted. Perhaps you can change my view on this?

    True love is hard to get these days.. It is more of lust and money involved in it.. but I guess true love is insane and unconditional.. I agree with sagbee.. smile

    True love is, first, the love of self.  With this, more is attracted to you; enabling you to love others

    What is called true love is a one-way road of relationship. You just care, like and love the person without expecting anything back. The moment you start demanding or expecting, it ceased to be a true love. Even if the person walks away, you still love him or her. It needs tremendous courage, tolerance, and maturity to practice it.
