    What does perfect love mean to you? How would you know that your love is perfected?

    The perfect love is "mutual love" in depth for one another. It's when both people are (naturally in agreement) about what they want for the relationship. Happiness is not measured in terms of (you and me) but rather in terms of (us and we).

    There is no perfection, especially in love. Love evolves and moves like us, it grows. it matures, it dies or not.
