Does anybody still believe in true love?

    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.

      i believe in true love.  the only problem is unlike the movies, true love is extremely rare and hard to find.  in fact, most people rarely ever find it, where as a lucky few do.  of course, i guess that's what makes love so special i guess, as it's rare.

      I definitely still believe in true love - which I'm guessing means that at 48 years old I will probably be walking that road by myself for awhile. I've been married, in long and short term relationships - all of which ended up empty. I feel like I keep attracting the same type of person with a different face, which makes me wonder what it is about me that's making that happen.

    I believe in true love - a bit late in life, and I needed someone half my age to show me AND explain how it works.

    Hiding from your emotions for any reason is a good idea if you are unsure of yourself - because love is about showing everything.

    Hi Jonathan, I suppose do not believe in true love.  Because I don't understand any emotion or feeling is ever without doubt or can be swayed.

    I believe strongly in love though buddy.  At 44 I accept and embrace there are so many forms of love.  What a blessing we have within each other.

    I say poop on true love and thank you so much people for gifting me with receiving and giving so many different wonderful lessons in love which can only grow or move on, either way how much more enriched we are from feeling it

    Have a great night Jonathan


    btw pleasure to meet you smile

    Nice pic. Actually, I do believe in true love. I guess what I don't believe in is myself. Sad, isn't it? Especially because many people other than myself do believe in me, and some of these people have shown me that I can do amazing things under the right circumstances.

      Not sad sad  Jonathon.  Just a moment you have paused on your path.  I believe one that will lead you to understand what love means to you.  What we think, at the end of the day, s irrelevant, believe.  But take this time ti just be open to accepting your worthy of being happy, everyone is.  Been there, so tough lonely and confusing, hang on and when your not looking


      your answers will hint at some clarity.  I will not tell you to believe in yourself, I am no one to say this, but I will fucking say hang on to the vision of what you want to release to be OK

      big_smile hang with me, guaranteed to self destruct  lol

      OK so help me

      someone define true love


      different levels of variations of this love?  Which is true? 

      What is TRUE love?  A state of mind is my guess.  Maybe also because I have loved many ways, all a path in my life, all good., make sense?  No? hmmm

    I want to believe, but no point in believing in something that doesn't exist.

    I fell in love with a guy 13 years younger than I many years ago.
    We are still together, even though EVERYONE said I was absolutely out of my mind.
    He is the light of my life-and we fell head over heels the first time we set eyes on each other.  Don't let anyone say it can't happen!!!!!!!!!!!

    I do believe in true love and I have lived with him for a little less than  twenty years of my life...True love is not an emotion or a fancy ideal, it is a relationship that you have to work at to make it work for you...It is a lot of work I can tell you but worth every bit of it!!  Best wishes to you!

    Certainly yes.. True love exist smile , the awkward thing was that when a person is truelyly in love with a person these feelings are often ignored or trashed. I agree that true love is an elusive thing big_smile

    Thank you all for the encouragement. I appreciate the heartfelt advice. I suppose I've been feeling a little victimized lately.

    Do believe in it, yes - but more than a year on from my separation, it continues to pain me every second, of every minute, of every day, as I found out it was a one way feeling.

    Would never again so much as contemplate taking the risk of a relationship, so if you are happily single, do the sensible thing and stay that way!! smile

    Gordon, thank you for sharing. I am sorry to see you are so heartbroken.

    well, if it's not true, it probably isn't love. 

    it's not the fairytale stuff. love can be for a 'season'

    I guess.. I think we have a lot of responsibility in making it true love.

    You know how they say you know it when you find it?  Well I have become a believer and was once a very pessimistic person on the idea of finding 'it', but I was hell bent on trying.

    And here I am head over heels for a woman who is head over heels for me, she's perfect...in every facet, she's kind, caring, loving, compassionate, funny, witty, smart, down to earth she has it all and I can't believe it.  The best part about it is that she can't believe she's met me either, she never thought that she'd meet someone to take her flowers to work or just to send her a text telling her how beautiful she is.

    Just remember love is an act not a feeling, so when you meet that person that makes your knees tremble make sure you show it to them when and wherever possible.

    It exists man just don't rush it.  It will happen when and where you least expect it...trust me that was the best Meatball sub I have ever ordered...

    I do believe in true love. It exists. My parents proved it to me being married over 35 years and still keeping romance in their relationships.

    Love doesn't exist, that's what I'm trying to tell you guys. And I'm not picking on love, 'cause I don't think friendship exists either.

    Sorry, stole that line from Wedding Crashers.

    Is there 'untrue' love?
