    When his/her life becomes more important to you than your own.  That is love.

      then don't you think LOVE in this case will be very difficult,because how can somebody's life become more important than yours? Even the holy scripture quotes,"LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS U LOVE YOURSELF"...so what will make me in my rightful senses love

    Scientifically speaking, love is caused by interaction of hormones, brain chemistry and emotions. We are not animals who mate to reproduce and ensure the continuity of the species. Love is about getting and giving fulfilling relationship that makes us happy and contented.

    A simple four letter word but most difficult to define. smile
    In my opinion 'Love' cannot have a generic meaning. Its intensity, form, and meaning varies from one relationship to the other.
    E.g. Love can exist between friends, mates, married / unmarried couples, colleagues, neighbors, parent & child, and even God & devotee. In all these different relationships, 'love' assumes different forms. As such how can you have one single definition for 'love'?
    One common element, however, present in all forms of love is 'surrender'. Unless you give away yourself completely in a relationship, true love cannot be experienced. Again in present times, its not possible and not even advisable to completely surrender yourself in a relationship unless you are 100% sure of the other person....but that a different territory ..lets not go there.
    Long story short, from my experience 'love' is a celestial experience and can be fully enjoyed if it exists without any selfish motives and hidden agendas. 'Love'  which is unconditional, selfless, sacrificing and supportive is 'love' in true sense.

      thank u very much for your devoted answer to ma question,I can feel that this answer is really from the heart. But in my case am talking about love in a relationship,I have never experience/felt it before...so I always wonder,does LOVE  exist at-all?

      Maybe your past relationships were "developed" or influenced by some "protocol" due to your religion,self gratification or because of learned behavior.  2 B quite frank love isn't something U experience or feel. U know love because........

    I would like to share what Paul says about Love:

    If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  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.  If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part,  but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.  When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.  For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

    And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

    it will blossom every aspect of your being.  Mentally...mentally and mentally, you will evolve, no longer will you see life and the ones you "love" as an obligation.  Love defines responsibility on various levels
