What makes you or made you believe in True Love?
Love is all around you and finding love can be a problem for many people. Some give up on love while others don't care for love, or have lost and found love more than once in their lives. Do you think love can hold you together in a marriage or relationship?
The first time I saw my wife and my breath was taken away, thats when I knew true love.
My great-grandparents. You see, my great-grandpa was divorced by his first wife shortly after he returned from forced labour in Germany, where he was located during WW2. Somehow, he met his second wife, the only great-grandma from this side I've ever had the honour to know and call family, and they made each other complete, like two halves of one piece. Together they went through the tragedy of their only child being stillborn, together they went through the sickness and health, and were together for over 60 years before death did them part. Sure, they had their moments when they would drive each other nuts, but they never let those moments drive them apart; always trading kisses, holding hands and smiling at each other, as if the other had been the only one in the whole of the world.
Anyone who says true love does not exist must be having a very sad, sad life; or at least a life devoid of such loving examples.
I was soured on relationships and marriage due to a very bitter divorce some 15 long years before a bus collided with my car. After transferring to my rehab hospital I was lying in my hospital bed with two broken legs, a fractured rib and a scratched spleen and a fractured rib when my CNA (Certified Nurses Assistant) peeked around my curtain just to see how I was doing before she started her shift. The very moment that I saw her eyes I knew I fell in love with her. I knew that we would date after my hospital stay, we would marry and live together as man and wife forever till death do us part. Oh yes we do have our major rows and loud and heated disagreements, but the underlying love that glued us together is still holding us there and shows no signs of weakening. Our happy moments far out weigh our unhappy ones. Our commitment to each other for better or worse in sickness and health and heated arguments while we ignore any temptations to stray is as strong and warm today as it was that cold January morning in the hospital and with God's help will last us into the next world. There is a lot of work in a marriage, the give and take and respect for one another can never waver, and it hasn't. I only wish others could find these good things in their relationships/marriages.

Do people still believe in true love?? Or is it all about finding the one with the best attributes?Im a romantic 100%. And it just seems that people have stopped feeling as much ad started thinking way more... Overthinking, at that.

Or have most people gone back to the feudalistic medieval mindset: that marriage is purely for the procurement and protection of property? I have seen so many people hide from their emotions because they are afraid of rejection. And then there's me, hiding from my emotions out of fear of success.

Have you ever been in true love before? What did it feel like?I was engaged for a couple of years until I was 20, we broke it off then I was married for 15 years. I never knew love until I met my current boyfriend. I have no idea what I was thinking with my past two relationships, there was no love...
