Although the dictionary definition of the word Love is quite expansive, it is also rather dry and does not really explain the range of emotions that you go through when love knocks on your door.
Is it Love?
A World Full of Love
Am I in Love?
I have met this girl and I like her a lot but I don't know if I love her, How do I Know if it is love?
Most People would answer this question in the same way if you dont know if you are in love then you probably are not because when you fall in love you will know all about it.
I tend to disagree with this outlook because quite simply Love can grow over time, you might just like this girl at the moment but who knows how you will feel about her in a week, a month or even a year from now.
some people are good friends for years before one day they suddenly realise that they are head over heels in love with each other, the movie When Harry met Sally is a perfect example of this.
Love can be an instant attraction we have all heard of couples who claim that it was love at first sight, the very minute they set eyes on their partner they new that they were meant for each other. others would argue that this was Lust for each other rather than love and that initial lust led to love.
Everyone experiences love differently so if you ask me, Am I in Love with him/her?
The answer that I will give to you is simply only you know the answer to that question.
Everything is Love
Almost every time that you switch on the radio there is a love song playing, in almost every book including the bible there are love stories, in most movies the hero or heroine has a romantic liason, open a newspaper there is an agony aunt giving advice on love, in the street you see lovers young and old walking hand in hand, in school or at work you gossip every day about who loves who.
Love is all around us we cannot escape it although sometimes we wonder when love is going to come for us.
