    Is love always painful or does it just appear that way?

      True love is so simple! Everything just works, you follow your heart, speak from your heart, and all else simply falls into place. If the love is complicated, it's probably not meant to be, and will probably do you damage in the long run, by stunting your emotional, mental, and spiritual growth.

      Love is what you make it to be, just like life. You(not directed at you, but in general) must know when to give and when to take.

      Love is never seen as a burden, it's a wonderful feeling of joy and happiness. It's the individual's vision/perspective/perception that determines how "love" affects/effects a relationship.

      If you have two people who join together because of love for one another, then for some reason, one of their views changes about the other one, so then will their "love" for that person.

      Common-sense rules apply, even to "love". smile

    Why should it be painful? I think the opposite - it should be a very nice and pure feeling...

    Love is one of those things, that it is whatever YOU make it.

    I'll tell you what I've discovered in my 51 years of love and lust. Well, I guess it hasn't been that long, since I didn't know what lust was until I was 12 or 13. It seems to me that you can have a hot, passionate relationship that's like a roller coaster ride of ups and downs...OR you can have a loving, respectful relationship that's almost always on an even keel. I think a combination of the two are practically impossible.

    If you've found both in the same person, more power to ya! Give me your secret!

    Is there a particular issue you are dealing with? A break up or something?

      I always found that the best way to reply to an "I love you" that is not reciprocated is "Thanks... what was your name again?"

      The might go away angry, but at least they won't sit there waiting for a reply

      No not really. I have never been "in love" as well... I may can see how love can hurt someone if his or her significant other calls the relationship off, cheats, or do other really bad things...

    Love is beautiful, it hurts at times yes, but it gives you awesome feeling as well!

    Ups and downs, enjoy the moment, savor the times and appreciate it more, Love more

      The question remains HOW on Earth you fall in love?!?
      Gosh, I'd like that, even if it's not answered - whatever, just to try...

      Now I end up with some kinds of experiments in the field..Despite the fact that last time I was close to falling victim to my own experiment with my own feelings, journey towards love seemed to be as short as walking to Mexico.

      Possessiveness - yes, getting used to someone and caring about him - yes, lust - always. Trust? Not really... Love? Never.

    Love is the easiest feeling in the world to understand.  Love is the feeling you have when you walk through an open field in the warm sunshine or when you open your eyes to a beautiful summer day.

    Being in love, however, is the most difficult feeling in the world to understand.  Being in love is the feeling of utter confusion - last night you had a verbal fight with your loved one, then you made love.  Today you wonder...did you come to an agreement before making up?  Or will you have the same argument again?

      Life does come with a sense of irony. smile Don't waste your energy trying to figure out how the argument was made to end or if it will happen again?  You only do more worrying and stressing about things you have no way of controlling. smile

      Just a thought. big_smile

      Maybe just accepting that person as part of your life would do? I mean, accepting him as your partner, one and only?
