No I am too selfish for any ideal notion about love or its personification - there I said it!
Yes, I love but get distrust and hatred in return. I used to feel offended but soon learned to accept it as token to build up my heavenly bank credit.
I have had to learn to trust and love - hard lessons to learn btw. But I am still learning and I know many probably think me selfish. It is hard for me to relate to many people because they are from such a different background. It makes it hard to open up to people too - simply b/c so many people seem shocked the general process of my thoughts.
Btw, I am not evil or anything. I just don't trust people and I have to remind myself to empathize with people. It doesn't come all that natural to me.
I have to rely on C.S. Lewis and his book the Four Loves to answer this. Do I have friendships - Yes. Are there those I am attracted with - Yes. Do I act with the capacity of charity - Yes. Have flirted with the power of Eros in my lifetime - yes. So, at one time or another I personify the virtues of love.
For me, I love everyone for what they are and ask for nothing in return. I always believe this will give me true happiness.

Would you rather have Jesus than all the riches of this world?Salvation is a choice so is deciding to follow Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. But how many are willing to drop all they have and follow our Lord?
