How Can We Define Love?

Updated on March 11, 2012

Defining Love:

To define love you got to be sure you have been loved and you have felt it and.... you sense it in you...

"Love is s gift so well crafted that when you know is around

you feel like telling the world, "Finally I have been found"

But Joseph, please?? What is love?

It's a complex feeling that gets confused with materialistic needs, but in a few words:

Love is a divine feeling, meaning that who ever created this world and our existence made sure we will carry this gift until our last second of breathe.

Evolutionists add the need of procreation in our genes. Every cell of us point out to the conservation of our species. If you read us this far you are going to check into your own thoughts and either you were hungry and ate, you were lonely and just made those calls... or you found love and now are at ease. Love is the epitome of billion of feelings that come to us at once: Desire, joy, hope, care, appeal... and above all thankfulness.

Why we add thankfulness? When you find love in this world. I mean real love, is like you won the lotto, and so many of us know it in here. Most women complain that we men do not love anymore...and sadly is true and go both ways. I meant to say thankfulness because when you are love struck, you feel different and you just want to thank to that maker, for the gift.

You came to me at the right time

you changed my mind... and my whole life

You were the one I waited for

You make sure you close that door...

There are no words to express the joy when you are loved; you just keep wondering if this is going to last forever. One thing is for sure, love is out there!! You have to make time to find it and get hold of it...

So, how can we find it..?

Love has been around forever. If you go to the first years of your life. The first thing you remember is your mom or dad giving you a kiss. It doesn't matter if you are famous now, or are sleeping under that bridge today. Love has been part of us. Just look yourself in the mirror, you will see a resemblance from your parents. You will find it when you are not even thinking about it. You will find it with a positive mind. If it is divine, you will have to change that mind.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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."...The Apostle Paul

Love is like a child that came to you: You need to nurture it and make sure it gets fed. Women love more with emotions than with physical attraction, because they have a double role in life. The will be parents and partners. They were created to be there for us. This is written from my own heart and I know women can relate. Without them we will be lost. Going back in time we see Pocahontas saving John Smith, or Cleopatra saving Marc Anthony...Well sorry Eve, you read the script and you had to play your part.

Due to friends asking to continue on this subject, we are going to add some facts...and sometimes a crude reality.


When we were taking thermodynamics in college, we asked our teacher, "So you meant to say that this second law applies to everything?" That was my concern and my inquisitive mind was putting in motion all the laws that could fit in my head.

Professor Randall was an academic and besides molecular theory and this entropy mess, he awaken so many questions about life, and love of course.


Putting aside Murphy's law and complex theorems, we can apply science to real life

In practical terms, Love is everywhere and it stays constant.

  • Some people die, while others are born.
  • Some get divorced, others get married
  • Some meet a future love, others have just breaken up.

That's why some women ask why they have never met the loves of their lives, and some just...are so lucky. I'm not blaming the one above; I'm just trying to grasp and marry Science and molecules with the feelings that our 'Superior' being got in 'storage' for us.

For now, we advice you to stay positive and enrich your mind. Call it mantra or karma, stay focus in what life has for you. If love has been heading your way, get ready. That potential energy that was building up all your life, will hit you harder than you thought.

Love is blind, love is kind

know how to deal with it when its found

Love comes once, not twice

just follow your mind, and heart's advice

    Thanks Faith for stopping by and check on this hub. Love is certainly the reason for us to be here. Your perception of love is extraordinary. I know you are being loved by your family and your precious mom. So many wars would've been avoided if love had prevail through history. Hope you are having a wonderful day!

    This is beautiful. I have never read this one, and I got here via Maria's birthday hub, so thanks for including it. We only live once, and you are right, love is all around us----just have to open our eyes. What a great video of all the great love songs.

    I love that you have included that scripture ---perfect as to what real love is and what it is not.

    Love . . . so lovely.

    Voted Way up and sharing

    God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

    Thanks LifeisaBlog. This hub was written on a 30/30 challenge. Maria Jordaon asked us for more, and we added more trying to combine love and science. Thanks for commenting!

    @Lucky Cats, it is what it is. You love or don't. I can be short in commenting but I can write about the matter, as long as it makes sense to all of us. We have been loved, we loved and we still love, even after some painful relationships. Thanks Kathy!

    Hi here LDC! I found so much in this hub; to remember, to recall, to be reminded. I like the The Apostle Paul's description best. Probably because I am older, and no longer looking for a mate for procreation, and beyond the romantiv version of overly emotional ardor for another human being ("looking for love ...") , personally, Apostle Paul's all encompassing definition is what I feel I've 'grown' in to.

    Absolute love IS unconditional. It IS forgiving, kind, sympathetic, joyful, empathetic, truthful, honest and fair.

    The transient nature of "romantic" love, to me, relegates this 'step' second behind absolute fortunate couples grow together over years, they (if fortunate and if they work towards it), experience what I would call "finding one's soul mate." This kind of love always lasts; always exists; it is a respect and rejoicing in another human being in the least egotistical or possessive or needy way. It IS unconditional; loyal, respectful and, still, holds attraction one for another.

    I believe true love allows love making, not taking...or performing, or pride; is passionate, sensual, sweet and all encompassing. I fear, many are unfortunate in that they do not allow complete love but, rather, one dimensional.

    Our society has led us away from depth and towards a shallow way of relating on so many levels. True love in all it's complete a gift to be treasured.

    Thank you for this hub, Mr. LDC! Very appreciated.

    How can we define love...? A gift with certain degree of understanding and comprehension to the other half. We can keep talking about this feeling, but in the end... all will lead us into a good memory of those wonderful moments snatched from life. Thanks La!

    Hi Dave Mathews,

    I believe that there are certain things we cannot change in our couples, but love should make up for the differences. Thanks for stopping by again friend

    lord de cross: Truly to be loved by anyone, they must be willing to accept you just the way you are, taking the good with the bad and loving the whole package, not just part.

    Hi Deborah Brooks, You always coming after us. GREAT TO SEE you around. We love your romantic hubs too my friend. Thanks for commenting.

    @Flora Breen Robison, I agree with you, in how can we define love without leaving all other feelings behind. Love is so complex that I had to grab my thermo books from 20 years ago, to find more than physical and palpable answers.

    @Marcojour, You are funny! Due to your request we added this addendum, so you can read more about it. Thanks for pushing our buttons Lol!


    Love is at times like a playful child that eludes our fellings. When we are about to give up... it looms from the horizon and comes back to you. Thanks!

    Hi Jenny Asari,

    Actually the world is in need of so much love and it shows. Music, media and in here. We all want a true love.

    @Sonquioey10. You are right, there is more than just wait for love. You will have to look for it regardless. But when it is real love, it will come your way against all odds.

    @Hi Martie Coetser, I added more thoughts to ponder at the bottom of the hub. Breaking down the science of love, we can find so many deep thoughts that at first don't make sense. Thanks!

    @Cickitgirl, Thank you for your comment. Love can elude us, but when our time has come...we have to kneel down to it and praise it like a blessing. Thanks!

    OK, please don't faint... but I am wanting to read alot more of you... you see, the older I get (and I'm getting kind of old...), I am figuring out that guys and gals are pretty different?

    Lord, you're one of the few guys I don't mind reading...(and I promise, I'm not being at all catty) but this hub needs to be continued...

    Voted UP & UABI. Hugs, mar.

    Romantic love is one of many types of love, likely the most difficult to define. The easiest to define is the love between a parent and child, the first we experience. I love the video you chose. I know most of the songs well.

    Beautiful said, Joseph! ".....You came to me at the right time.... you changed my mind... and my whole life... You were the one I waited for... You make sure you close that door..."

    Oh, and what if you found love and you may for some profound reason or another not keep it?

    Beautiful songs in your video!
