To me, Love can be defined as more than a feeling. It is more of an experience. It is something that grows over a period of time. Young people usually say "fall in love". I say, "grow in love". I believe that if you literally fall that you will hit the bottom or ground eventually. Maybe, that is why it doesn't last sometimes. Love means more than wanting to be near a person. It means mutual respect - loving someone despite shortfalls; listening to someone objectively without criticism; good communication; giving and receiving in return; accepting each other's faults; appreciating each other; solving conflicts amicably without animosity. Love embraces so many things but most of all love is enduring - it is supposed to last to the very end of time. LOVE!
