    To respect and not to be afraid to show your true feelings, not to fall into trap to pretend to be  who you are not, which is so prevalent in today modern world, just to be tru to yourself and what you believe in...be patient, love will find you and the right person for you will stay by you side....patience is the key and your honesty and integrity:)

      I do think there is someone for everyone.  Everyone should present their true self.

      Yes, Dexis I believe it that too, but sometimes we are just too impatient to wait and make wrong choices:)

      That is so true, those masks we wear to please, to seduce and others do the same, when they fall...it can be hurtful, destructive. Though, maturing and experiencing we learn to choose the truth, not illusion, because it last and is meaningful.

    If you're not happy, move on. Love is compromise, but compromise and misery are two separate things.

    Love is the answer to everything -only it takes a while to realize that. What better way did the Beatles sing- all you need is love.

    That no matter what, he is worth it. That he is a valuable person in his own right. That he has nothing to be ashamed of. That he is a unique individual and a child of God.

      To clarify, in order to love others, one must TRULY love one's self. Self loathing and hate does so much damage.

      True, if you don't love yourself...it is impossible to truly love another.

    The word "Love" is all about action. It's not what's being said but rather what's being done that really demonstrates true love.

      Actions do speak as well when it comes to love.

    My mother has taught me that - ' You will love all people, including those whom other people consider to be  or miserly. When you look at the people you meet first time many of them might not respond you the way you see at them but when you will look at them with your lovely feelings, ugly looks beautiful and inferior looks superior of all.'

      I agree that you should never judge another by first impressions.

    Love is not using a girl and leaving her all alone to cry.It is to build trust and care between the two so much that she will think twice before cheating you.It's respecting each others differences and building a life long relationship,which gives inner peace and satisfaction.Love is eternal.

      Respect and trust are very important qualities in love.

    That love is unconditional. A mother's love is usually the finest example of that. Perhaps a romantic love can never be quite so unconditional if it is to be successful, but it should come as close as is possible in a relationship which must inevitably involve some give and take and compromise

      Absolutely learn give & take and compromise.

    Nourish your child's emotions to nurture his self esteem. When we respect ourselves we can then truly respect and love others.

    Learn to love yourself first.  So that you know how to love someone else and how to be love in return.

    Loving and stupidity are two different thing but we see it everyday smile

    I guess for me, the greatest important lesson that my mom taught me about love is that love is real and its out there. She took care of me and shown me love, with it I believe that true love exists out there because my very own mother shown me endless love and care.

    I think that a son usually respects his mother the most among women. It's her true love for him that makes the son start thinking that his mother is the best in the world.
    It's the role of a mother to change a son into a good man who has both love and care for others. There is nothing for a mother to teach a son . It is automatically learned from her. Her words and deeds inspire him very much.

      Absolutely agree that a mother teaches her son by her very words and deeds!

    I think that teaching our children to find their peace and love within themselves first and then let themselves grow out. It is better to be with somebody who loves us , who we love, who we make happy, who makes us happy. It is not in a magic box, it requires work, dedication and sometimes compromise.
    The idea of the perfect person, that so many keep on running after while destroying their lives, is so shallow and immature.
    Yes, sometimes the perfect match shows us and we stick like the pieces of a puzzles, but few times and then personal growth may make space between them, if they want to they can keep on getting to know, love and respect each other, take care of themselves and each other.
    Love, peace, happiness, strength, focus, compassion, forgiveness...a nice combo for ourselves and others.

      Good thoughts.  Unfortunately, you are right.  Some people have ideals of perfect and keep running in search of it when sometimes perfect has been right there all along.  Then they miss it!
      Nice combo of qualities indeed...L, P, H, S, F, C & F!!

    Give more than you take, always be honest. This will establish trust, in which in my humble opinion is the most important factor in any relationship. Not only letting her know how much you love her, but also that she is wanted and needed to complete your life. And always respect one another, never take one thing for granted.

    That true love is unconditional, and is not reduced by petty foibles and spats.  If it is *true* love, it can be counted upon and GIVEN just as freely.

    True love is a no-strings-attached acceptance, and a strengthening of self with another, and the glad return of said strength and acceptance.

    A child will always learn the softer qualities of love from their mother. In the sense that you will respect those and that which are not strong physically.

    You gain your knowledge of manhood and toughness from dad, however mom is there to make sure the boy is well rounded while showing his sensitive side. A well rounded individual who can explore all their emotions is much better off than one who is close minded or afraid of situations. This is why the family aspect of having a mother as well as a father is so important.

    The family unit has taken a hit the last couple decades, but in a healthy manner should be promoted..

      Ideally a child learns how to love from both, true.  Lucky is the boy that has a mom that teaches him to express emotion and a dad that teaches him manly qualities smile

    Get your life in order before you commit your heart and soul to someone. "He who fails to plan, plans to fail."
    In other words before you settle down complete your education/training and establish a career path.
    "Pretty girls fart too!" In other words don't lose your head or put someone on a pedestal based upon appearance. It's been said:
    "Men fall in love with their eyes and women fall in love with their ears. However with age comes wisdom. Men learn that all that glitters is not gold and women learn that actions speak louder than words."

    That there is COMMITMENT in love; if there is not commitment, then the word "love" is being misused.

      True, Anna, without commitment love is impossible.
