    I do believe in true love. However it must be a mutual admiration from both parties. As a woman you will probably have to worked at love and love making harder that the men. You need to find out the wants and needs of your husband, lover, or friend.  Love is a deep caring for someone, no matter what their station in life, rich or poor.  If there are children you have a dual responsibillity to make it work, and show love in your daily activities.  Loyality is also important, and you need to be there when things are not going as well as possible. In this day and time you need to chase the need to be love and return the love that you receive.

    I was a little different stretch of true love with love first sight. True love is usually formed because of the time, and many instruments in it. But the first sight likely to desire or lust. and the difference is slim.
    I believe in true love, because basically all humans have a sense of love. A simple true love is genuine and sincere.

    True love, a garden in need of a gardener and a gardener in need of a garden, where driven by the heart of each, their life in each is met. Love at first sight is the hope of what might be and unconditional love is what survives the journey that love endures while growing up.

    True love, as the song goes, when love is truly right, it lives from year to year, it changes as it goes and on the way it grows, but it never disappears.smile

    True love is when you have to watch a friend leave, with the knowldege that you might never see him again but you know that he'll be in your heart forever.

    Yes, I believe in true and unconditional love but I don't believe in love at first sight. Like at first sight,yes.

    All of you bring out excellent points. Truth and love can be defined differently by everyone and is truly relative. I know in my love relationships, I've chosen to love and commit to them and be as supportive as I can be.

    Sometimes I may fail their expectations, but I have to realize that I am not a goddess, just a wonderful woman as are they a wonderful person that God placed in my life. At the end of the day, what matters is how I feel about my people, and how they feel about me.

    that's a load of questions to answer! but i know for a fact that love is hard to fathom but not impossible to attain. it just needs a lot of tweeking, acceptance, forgiveness, tolerance -- things that are not quite easy for anyone to just give freely to anyone.

    Yes I do believe in true love and so does my partner/soulmate.  I will define true love as an emotionally, physically, mentally, sexually, satisfying relationship with a significant other.  When you have that relationship with someone that you could not imagine life without, that is true love.  It is a pure, untainted, forgiving relationship that improves the lives of both.  True love is not abusive but builds up and supports personal growth.  I believe that true love is unconditional love.  I will love this other person when the chips are down.  I won't leave him because he lost his job or became terribly ill.  I will stand by his side.  It is in a few words, "an amazing thing of beauty." I do believe in love at first sight, though I think it's a rarity.  It is difficult to really know another person by sight alone.  Perhaps, one can have a deep physical attraction at the moment of sight and have a strong desire to get to know him/her and have a relationship with the individual.  It is over time that we get to know whether or not we are compatible.

    True love is when you meet someone that you can spend time with. And, as you spend those hours, weeks, years, and decades, you don't grow tired of each other. You can't always pretend that every day will be perfect, but you can always know that you can't live without that person.
    This love transends time, situations, and didstance. I believe that this is often confused with lust, and lust fades whereas true love won't. If it is true love, you won't part, and if you do, you'll be back because you simply can't live without each other.
    Love at first sight (in my opinion) can be a tricky thing. I think it is possible, but not really probable. I believe that love at first sight doesn't always mean the first time you see that person, but maybe it happens long after you've known that person, and suddenly, if you're lucky, you start to see that beautiful thing

    True love is when you dont need to hear the words, you can just understand by their expression.

    True love is when you dont fear expressing your feelings to the one you love. You feel happy expressinng it to everyone Close to you.

    You understand each other well. No one has 5o give any kind of explanation for anything, the other feels it automatically.

    You dont have to fight all the time for little things.

    You dont have to show off in front of the person you love. You find peace with him/her and you are yourself, when you are with your true love.

    You become tge support system of one another, and you dont feel like keeping secrets with them, even if they are worst, because you know, you will be understood and pacified and will be helped out if needed.

    True love is not only getting physical, but getting emotional.
    For me it has to be in form of your Best Friend and if not then know each other so well that their friends dont need to explain you anything.

    Its just the most romantic feeling with lots of trust, understanding and care and loyalty.

    The word Love in itself is quite complex and complicated to understand. That even our senior most ancestors misunderstood it. Let's introduce the aura of love, through the testimony of our Creators. According to Christian belief, God created Adam and Eve amidst the beautiful Garden of Eden. But unfortunately Eve falls in the trap of the Satan Serpent due to her "Greed for Knowledge". She ate the forbidden fruit of knowledge in the form of an apple. But, Adam wasn't lured by the Satanic figure, to indulge in such a misdeed.Why Adam had the forbidden fruit of knowledge? The answer lies within a psychoanalytical prospect, the "Narcissistic" form of love. According to this belief, a person desires another person, not because he loves her. But, he can't imagine himself without her.
    So, Adam betrayed God, cause he didn't wish to get separated from Eve. His head could hear the conscious whispers that Eve would be punished, and thrown out the Garden of Eve. For him, she was the mirror, without which he couldn't imagine himself. Thereby, he followed the misguided path of her.Was that right? Through, the love's point of view, it seemed right. But, was it, it wasn't, cause when you love someone, you should pray for beheading the trouble from his head. But, he mistakenly landed himself and her, in deep problematic issue.
    For centuries, the feeling of love without love within it, has perished mankind. Don't run away from the charismatic chasm of Cleopatra, which bared neither the powerful Egyptian men nor the uproar of war.
    Then , is the existentialism of "True love", a myth. It's not.It's just lost amidst the nature of our selfishness.
    For example, A man plants a tree, he waters it, he gives a good of time after it's enhancement. But one day, he acknowledges that he need to leave this town. So he plucks the flower and takes it with himself.
    This is the sort of Love we all are willing to deal with. When it comes with terms and conditions of our pleasure and fulfillment.
    But, the word love starts the moment we attach "freedom" and "unselfishness" to it.
    The sort of love where we connect with God, that's pure love. He enriches us with everything, but what does he demand?
    Except our well, being. Nothing.When a couple separates, they curse each other, then move ahead in life. Was that love?
    As it didn't come up with "Forgiveness", but captivated ego within them.
    "True love" is different from the "feeling of love", it's everywhere.
    Just seek for it.

    Just reconnected with an old friend. He met his wife when he was 17 and she was 16. They fell hopelessly in love. Their parents decided they should let them get married. As I heard his mother say; "We're all just shadows to them anyway" I saw him last Wednesday. After 6 children and over 50 years of marriage, they are still just as hopelessly in love as when they first met.
    I avoid the word "Believe" Ever notice that it has "lie" right in the middle. I am convinced that true love exists. If you ever doubt that,  read Robert Fulghum. He was already a highly successful author when he decided to write a book on True Love. He sat in his favourite coffee shop in Seattle with a note on the table that said "Tell me a true love story and I'll buy you a coffee and make you famous." He heard these amazing stories and put them in his book. All the profits were donated to Habitat for Humanity. The storytellers all got credit for the stories. It's a beautiful book that will convince you that true love really does exist.
    My favourite definition of love is from Robert Heinlein in his book "Stranger in a strange land" One of the main characters put it perfectly:
    "Love is that condition where the happiness of another is essential to your own."
