What is the difference between "unconditional love" and "true love"?
These phrases are becoming common, do we really understand them?
Unconditional love extends to everyone, literally. True love is usually used in reference to romantic love...or it can refer to the feeling of a person who has discovered what drives him or her..as in art, music...a side of his creativity which he is passionate about..
Unconditional love is not having a judgment or belief of what love is. It's just love. As one accepts unconditionally, the truth emerges. (Not just in relationships or with other people, but within yourself.) Great question.
True love exists when we love unconditionally .They are more or less related.Our parents give us unconditional as well as true love.But its hard to differentiate true love from unconditional love.U might love someone true when you like his/her characters but unconditional love is the love where you love someone despite any bad qualities in them.
To me, unconditional love is when you love someone no matter what. I love my son and my grandson and other family members unconditionally.I've always loved them and always will. True love is when you are IN love with someone. My husband is my true love, but no other family member is...or anyone else for that matter. Even though my husband is my true love, I don't love him unconditionally....there are things that he could do that would cause me to not love him anymore.
What an excellent question to pose: "True Love" versus "Unconditional Love". This begs for a distinction. You can't just put a messy kiss on the subject and say: "Well a sloppy kiss is a good kiss because the intention is so grand."

Unconditional love in the ideal of love. True love is the realization of this idea.
Generally speaking when I hear the term "unconditional love" I usually think of it in relation to God's love for mankind or a mother's love for her child.
The vast majority of us do have "deal breakers" especially when it comes to our personal relationships. (Cheating, verbal/physical abuse, drug/alcohol addiction, lack of affection/sex, financially irresponsible...etc) are just a few of the circumstances that may cause someone to have a change of heart. In my opinion having "deal breakers" is a healthy thing. If you don't love yourself you can't truly love someone else.
Both mean the same, only that true love may refer only to romantic love while unconditional love may refer to all kinds of love, can be romantic, love for children, for family etc.
Unconditional Love is basically Divine and eternal; it's true essence is beyond human understanding. "True love" is some kind of real feelings for one "special person" that you "stumble on" in life's journey in a given time and space; it can be lasting or it will pass any time as a consequence of conflicts and personal interest and individual differences.
UNconditional love is the only exact and precise definition of "True Love" . If your love has conditions then its not true, be it you love towards your parents, friends, god, nature or specifically a girl or a boy.

I recently realized that true love might just not exist at all. The feeling of love is momentary, i.e. what you feel at that particulart point of time... Nothing is same after a lapse of time, or rather we are no longer the same....

Love feeds on the joy that comes from within. Feelings strengthened by thinking thoughts of kindness, peace, hope and success toward the one that is loved. It needs no invitation, no encouragement, no telling, no touching, no appreciation, no gifts, no looks, no words - written or spoken.It is not...

Can love be truly ' unconditional'?Literature is strewn with 'unconditional' love- can this really be, can we just love without reciprocity and understanding, without a return for our passion and persistence?
