    My husband is, accepting with my faults and all, seeing only the good person he married, treating me respectfully all the time even when we might not see eye to eye.  Never invalidating what I say, no matter how dumb it sounds, and I can say off the wall stuff once in a while.  This makes me love him very much in return and in turn treat him with respect and love.  We care about how each other feels and we have each other's best interests at heart.

    Actually you are the only one who define what "true love" is to you. Ideally we all want someone who feels as deeply for us as we do them. Someone we can celebrate our victories with as well as confide our fears in.
    A relationship that contains what I call the six main ingredients: Honesty, Trust, Loyalty, Love & Devotion, Intimacy, and Emotional Security, is well on the road to relationship happiness!

    Ultimately everyone want a relationship where there is mutal love and respect for one another where each person is not only accepted but celebrated for being who they are.

    True love is a feeling you get when you see someone. Not a feeling that lasts for a while but one that feels like it would last forever.

    True love is simply love that is given, accepted, and shared.
    True love is when you both realize that even though there are other options, there is no better option.
    True love is when you both can't conceive a life without each other
    True love quenches the idea of hurting each other
    True love does not have a shell life

    How could I tell? Is it not true that we are all looking for it? We only have an idea of true love. However, we do not know what is true love. How could I answer the question then?

    And even if I knew ... how shall I explain the taste of strawberries?

    true love comes when there is deeper emotional involvement in between the partners and they are willing to do anything, literally anything for each other, they care for each other like no other, is called true love.

    There is no answer for this question. Love is what you feel inside of you and know one can tell you what love really is. Its different for everyone.

    Love not based upon sex alone is a start.  People change so love can change too.  True love is more a myth than a reality.

    Perhaps if you can stay with a person after having gone on an extended trip without hating each other afterward may be a indication that love exists.

    Caring for a person through sickness is a sign of true love, particularly if the sickness will be prolonged and likely end only in death of the sufferer.  Some attend to the sick for reasons other than love... mostly guilt or some other feeling of obligation not really related to love.  But it usually takes some kind of love to attend to the very ill or disabled.

    true love is patience and kindness.  Its a lot of understanding and never giving up.  True love is knowing that you may change and so may they but that is ok.

    It is not possible to give an absolute definition of some terms in our world, such as life, happiness, sorrow, emotion, spirit, love etc. If I cannot define what love is, how can i explain what  true love is; because all these terms are relative. However in my belief true love should be love that is significantly attached with emotion, trust, respect, understanding and broadmindedness. If any of these is less love gonna be in trouble.

    I do not for sure but I think true love is doing something for your love to make her happy even that means making yourself sad. Respecting her wishes even you do not agree with it. In love I heard you feel elevated, motivated and happy from within.

    I will keep checking for other people's wisdom and answers here as well.

    True love is pretty much the real deal between people. Its uncondtional love because it doesn't let you down. It doesn't kick you to the curb, make you feel sad, hurt or neglected. It stays around and will forever have your back.

    I believe true love, is a love that lasts, that has more components to it than feelings, rationale and shared experiences.

    Somedays its a choice, somedays it so easy it flows. It will take work whether it is true love or an infactuation.

    Also is true love limited to romantic relationship or is it called something different the love you have for your parents, siblings and best friends?

    I'd like to think that true love is what inspired me to write this hub

    True Love is the answer to everything.

    Once one finds true love, one finds the answer to the question.

    This is a tough question that has no single answer. The answer depends on one's world vision. For me the true love is sacrifice. If you can sacrifice everything you have, to some one that means you have true love for that person. Here what you give may be your wealth, time, happiness, your body, may be your life. Without any condition. Of course, you must have some valid reason for you to love someone like that.

    Love is merely just a chemical reaction. however if we are talking of what I believe to be love which is not how we feel but what we with what we feel. love only ever becomes just that with action. to command someone's it isn't all that hard. humans are not better than dog's or any animal when it comes to love. for example like a pack leader would protect their herd our mothers or fathers would protect us in exactly the same way. this is called love and all that situation points to is the fact that we have no self control in any situation when the chemical called love kicks in.

    True love is liking the person you are in love with, spending time with them because you want to, and sharing everything without the fear of being unaccepted.  It's tough to find, but so worth the work.

    true love is:  deep unconditional care, loving despite all faults, lifelong passion and connection, friendship, always wanting what is best for this person, respect, seeing the person as beautiful and whole from inside out, always wanting to give them your best and encouraging them to do the same, supporting and encouraging, wanting to give all of yourself to someone and wanting to know and receive all of them (the good and the bad) in return.

    True love is very simple to identify and short to define. It is love that does not expect love in return,the holy book asked us to love others as we love ourselves,but in true love you can love somebody more than you love yourself, i have experienced it.

    I believe that True Love is defined in I Corinthians 13:1-8
    1 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 
    8 Love never fails.

    also in the following two Scriptures:
    John 15:13
    Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

    I John 3:16
    This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

    However, if you do not subscribe to the Truths of the Bible, then I cannot answer your question to your satisfaction.

    So many people do not have an understanding of love as defined by God Himself, instead their understanding is according to human intellect and emotions....unfortunately, human wisdom fails.

    I would say agape love, in terms of a love that is committed to the well-being of others. Even if you are referring to "true love" in the sense of someone you might marry, live a life with, I still say agape love.

    We often confuse physical or emotional passion with "true love" but that love is really rather selfish, as we are consumed by our own feelings in relation to that other person. We are in fact, loving ourselves as reflected off how that person makes us feel.

    Love that lasts, whether the beloved by "mankind" in general, our children or our spouse is most true when it is committed to the well-being of the other rather than to ourselves.

    Trying to come up with a definition of true love can be a difficult task as the experience can differ so much from person to person. In order to determine whether or not your feelings, or the feelings another person has shown toward you, are a healthy display of affection it is important to understand what types of thoughts and actions might be considered crossing the line.

    Those who are going about finding true love in the right way will often have a healthy respect for those they become involved with. Others who may become obsessed, not just with an individual, but with the very idea of one true love bringing about meaning into their lives, may take on an unhealthy edge in their pursuit.

    Falling In Love:

    When it comes to love and relationships there are certain signs to look for that show a healthy balance between two people is being formed that may lead to a meaningful connection. Being involved in your own romantic love story can be one of the most amazing experiences in life and though at times you may not feel completely in control of your own feelings, this is not necessarily an indication that you're on the wrong path.

    True love is being able to tell your lover the truth no matter what.
    It is repecting and being loyal to your partner and treating them with kindness. It is wanting the best for them always.
