    Love is wonderful but can you say you truly have it? Its makes you feel good. It makes you feel anxious. It makes you feel wanted. It makes you feel alive. We all want to experience that feeling.We all want to know what love is. I think if giving the chance alot of people wish they could bottle that special feeling have it handy at a hands reach. I know one thing if there was more love we could probably solve alot of issues. Its always the little things that count. If you love and are loved in return you have been blessed. You have been enlighten. You will never see life the same. Just a little more clearly. Just a little more open hearted,but guarded.

      I have experienced it so many times before. I loved being inlove. It was like a drug. I would get a natural high from it.

      Am I inlove right now? No, I'm not. I do love my husband but I am no longer inlove with him. Things just changed over night and soured it which sucks. It takes alot to fall back inlove, especially when you have been angry for so long trying to figure out what the hell happened to the person you married.

      Oops, Sorry for venting,,,.

    Oh yes, most definitely. It's funny how our ideas of being in love change over the years. What I once thought was love was probably only infatuation or lust. Now that I am in a relationship (for the past 11 years) where there is genuine love for each other I know the difference and count my blessings every single day. wink

    loved ... yes in love not really sure, does that mean no.....  "in love" is a strange concept at least to me...

    I just wrote a hub on this, yes I am in love, was and will always be.. love is the very essence of our existence. At any given point we love someone our spouses, partners, children, friends.. love is not restricted to the love between a man and a woman. Love is a universal concept. Friendship says Aristotle is A single soul dwelling in two bodies.' if that is love what are we speaking about here?

    Even if a person does not love others, most people are in love with the concept of love, as all of have a basic need to be needed deep inside of us.
    Yes I love smile

        Best wishes to you PDH!  But you may want to review your concept of love because it is most often Utopian in nature....  I am sure you will find the man of your dreams! smile

    well look for someone that shares your interest and then take it from there! don't ever try to make compromise before you go into a relationship you will have problems in the long and it may end up not lasting very long, make sure you know the person very good to an extent

        I am nice as a person but I am not good looking or smart to modern days girl. lol Everyone calls me backdated sad You tell me if I love my culture, if I talk about country, is it wrong? Most of the girls now a days like bikers, hip hop dancers, hard rock singers, sports car racer or at least fashionable guys who wear torn jeans pants near to their knee lol

          Hang in there saleheensblog.  It sounds like you have your priorities in order, and if you truly believe that definition of love ("respect... sacrifice... understanding...") that you wrote, you'll find your match - and she'll be lucky to have you! big_smile

          Saleheen, is that you in your avatar?? If so, you're very handsome! You need more self-confidence. Women love a man with confidence - as long as it's not overdone. lol

          And you mentioned you are not "good looking"?  I think a lot of guys think that and I feel you can look beyond your looks and find your strongest character traits.  Is that a pic of you?
          Dark hair and brooding eyes, I think you shouldn't have any problems in your looks.  I know what you mean about the modern day gals, it would be hard to fit in because you mentioned about
          being "backdated,"  that's not a bad good thing. If a gal can't accept you for the way you are, then that's her problem.  Not yours.  You should have to fit into today's society.  Keep smiling and I'm sure you'll find someone...I know I read your post of 2 months ago, so I need to find the more updated one!  (:

    sofs - I so agree with what you are saying. Limiting the definition of love is so... um... limiting! big_smile
    Someone said (may have been you) that "in love" is a complicated term.. and it is.
    I am "in love" with my husband.  Although, my definition of that has changed greatly in the many years we've been together.  We went from highschool sweethearts, to a married couple with kids and a mortgage and my definition of love has changed.  Our love is softer, but stronger.  We're far from perfect... I don't like him everyday, but I knew our relationship was "real" when I realized that I could have days where I didn't want to even be around him, but that even in those worst moments, I still loved him.  Like and love are not the same- and one is not always a requirement of the other.

    But, back to sofs' point.  I also love my children, my friends, my family... and, after a lot of  years working on it... myself.  All of these types of love are different, and complex, and wonderful.  I am blessed to have them all as a part of my life, and I hope that you all have some or all of them in your own and embrace them wholly as the gift that they are!

    How many mistake love for lust and romance?

      Julie2posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I haven't... I know when I have been in lust with someone because all I want to do is have uncontrollable sex with this person, have there hands all over me, just be animal...  sorry got carried away! Love is more intimate, it doesn't only deal with the flesh it also deals with the mind. Romance is sweet and innocent, at least thats what I believe anyway

    Yep! I'm in love...with my husband! He is truly my soul mate. After 22 years of marriage, my heart still flutters when he kisses me. I can always count on him for support, aid, and a shoulder to cry on. He makes me laugh, too! He's also great with home repairs and remodeling, which is DEF worth some bonus points! lol

    Of course, he didn't come out of the box like this. Our first couple of years were pretty shaky. It took a few years of maturity and husband-training. LOL!!

      Wow, habee--Our stories are almost identical, right down to the years you've been together!

      We didn't have the rough first years, though, that's about the only difference, but the rest is spot on.

      Everyday, my husband makes me laugh--those of you who know him on here probably aren't surprised by that, haha. And I still feel those little tingly chills when he smiles at me, the way he does... smile


      saleheensblog--I love your outlook on love, and if you keep that outlook, you're bound to find someone who feels the same way.  My husband was 33 and I was 29 when we finally met, so you still have plenty of time!!!  big_smile
