    What's love to you? How do you define it? When do you know you're in love? What's the difference between love and infatuation? When is it too early to fall in love with someone?

    Just some questions that are circling my head as I feel I may have fallen in love for the second time ever.

    These are two different questions, I think.

    "What's love to you?"

    "When do you know you're in love?"

    We think you need to have and feel both. The first is love, plain and simple that you'd have for anyone not a lover. And then add being in love; it can be listening to his voice run across you like electric fire, and feeling protective at the same time. It can be wanting to turn that guy on til point of ecstasy, and also feeling like you want to give the world to him, because he's giving his to you.
    Really, all reasons are personal anecdotes. icon_wink.gif

    PS Mom once told me, "If you can use his toothbrush you're in love with him." and Dad cackled in the background at Mom's foolishness (but I think he appreciated it).

    I know I'm in love when I can tear up or shed a tear just by looking into his eyes, or weep like a 5-year old boy because he's in emotional or physical pain and I can't do anything about it.

    is it love?

    Have taken a long car trip with him?

    Have you gotten through a medical/monetary crisis with him?

    If you have and still love to watch him eat...it's love buddy.

    I think part of loving someone, for me, that doesn't really set in until you really have truly started to love them, is when you feel bad when they do... you hurt for them. If my boyfriend is sad or going through a rough patch, the thought of it can really upset me.

    Of course, on a happier note, I think love is a deep TRUST + connection with a person. It's sort of on a whole other level than just that early infatuation, though I think sometimes early on you can have a deep-down idea that you're going to be with that person for a long time.

    You know you're in love when you start thinking about him and suddenly you forget to breathe....

    But what if it is because your love for him may be considered "taboo" or because you're facing battles that are keeping you apart? What if those tears aren't just from raw emotion?

    Love is a four letter word, that many confuse with lust.

    Is it bad that I thought this was about JLo's new album????

    and I think love is when you have the ability to grow as a person, either by yourself or with/through other people.

    To me Love is a mixed bag of emotions shared between two individuals that are trying to bond and understand one another! that said jealousy, insecurities, resentments, emotional baggage, kindness, generosity, forgiveness, lies, honesty, hatred, affections and so on, in essence are all part of the mix or pieces of the puzzle of a bigger picture call love! take for instance a symbol of love such as the Rose, and ask yourself, does it only look pretty and smell good? why don't you try to pick one with your bare hands and see how much harm it would do to you!? Love is much like a Rose, you have to expect some pain before you can appreciate its beauty and fragrance up close !!

    I know I'm in love when I can't give you a reason why I am.

    True! Love is something that is felt and not spoken nor it can never be replaced by a symbol!
