    Most often cited in terms of "unconditional love" are God's love for mankind and a mother's love for her children.
    Beyond that all other love comes with conditions in the form of "deal breakers" for most people. Not many of us will allow others to mistreat us or take advantage of us (over and over again) without distancing ourselves from them. In fact if you have "no boundaries" you are thought to have no self love or low self-esteem.

    Unconditional love is having that pure agape' love that keeps no record of wrongs, nor does it seek anything in return for what is given.

    do you have a pet? If you do, pet them, make them happy, play with them, make them feel safe and feel like you won't hurt them. pets can offer you true unconditional love, as they don't care about your credit score, your personality, your looks. they don't care about those things. They love you because they feel that you love them. That, in my opinion, is unconditional love.

    Unconditional Love is a one-way traffic affair in the extreme; it cannot be equaled. There is no expectation for a payback. Does not expect the loved one to be righteous or beautiful in order to be loved; there is no measure and requirement to qualify the loved one. Does not expect to be fed, to be entertained, to be pleased, to be acknowledged, to be appreciated, to be given back anything, material, spiritual, or emotional. Does not expect to be reciprocated with the same or even little emotion, thanksgiving, praises, adoration, or any other form of return. If ever there is a response or return in any form to such a love, it would just be a bonus.
    What man or human can do this? Not even a mother, maybe some mothers do, the real mothers can, but only a few...Only God or any other Spiritual Being with such lofty nature knows exactly what unconditional love is and who can feel and give such a love. We humans can be recipients or objects of such a love; the kind of love that is beyond our understanding; but for us to do that would be a very poor imitation and demonstration of what is real.

    Motherly love is an example but any love that doesn't demand but give, doesn't request but share, doesn't blame but feel and doesn't hurt but heal is unconditional....if have you experienced any call yourself lucky...
