    if you would please write your definition of love.

    not really talking about how you act.

    just your perfect definition of love.

    what does it look like?

    ***also, does love have rules to obey? smile

    ***also, can perfect love hate that which is evil. mad

      Love is obsession, passion, something you cannot do without. It makes no sense living your entire life without falling deeply in love.
      Love makes you to levitate, to sing in rapture, dance like a dervish and be deliriously happy.

      The basic fabric of our universe is love which unites.

    Love is unconditional.  Love is beauty in an ugly world.  Love propels all acts of kindness.  Love is the root of all good things.

    While I can't say it any better than Davina, I can say this. I thought I knew what unconditional love was. And then I had children.

      I had to laugh at this after spending yesterday with what seemed like hundreds of little tackers! So many busy people, all totally oblivious that granddad would rather sip champagne in conversation with a fine audience, than watch them poo! smile smile

    I believe love is one thing and in love is another

    Love is unconditional= to love someone even if they don't love you, it just is what it is,  giving not expecting anything in return....

    In love is to love, love above all else, is when we understand and run to and embrace the first one

    which then in turn creates peace harmony and joy

      You understand it as I do. Doing the dishes for the one you love is good for starters. Sharing the load because that is what you love to do for them. smile

      Yeah this is very profound.  I remember when it was always faith, hope, and charity.  Now it is usually referred to as faith, hope, and love, which is not always the same.  Charity is always love but love is not always charity.

    I didn't know what love is until I became a mother. I learned that 'love' goes beyond loving someone unconditionally. It is such an intense emotion that it can make one sacrifice everything (even life, if needed) for the loved one. It's truly a Nature's miracle. smile

    well, is that the entire definition of love from everyone?

    i know more of you have input on the topic yes? big_smile

  10. Shaul Stein profile image55
    Shaul Steinposted 8 years ago

    well so far we have i think 13 people who gave an opinion.

    12 are a serious, sincere and heart felt definition of love that would help us all to love better. big_smile

    i am glad you all are participating and thank you smile

    Actually, I don't think Shaul was being sarcastic. It really is hard to write a better, more specific definition of love including a list of what it entails.

      You've lost me on that one, Val. As you get to spend more time in Forums, hopefully, you will find out who "Shaul" really is and then you might understand the comments I made.
      Cheers.

    I once read a book that analyzed all the different types of love we can have, and two characteristics remained in my mind:  It said that all love includes respect for, and admiration of, the other person.  That's not a complete definition, of course, but I do believe that no love is truly right when either of those characteristics is missing.

    there are lots of different aspects of love

    it is unselfish

    it comes sometimes when you don't expect it

    IT is blind

    It is cosy and warm

    Love never fails

  14. Lisa HW profile image80

    I'd say that genuine and whole love is "strong as steel", bigger than the Universe, and indestructable.
