What does "love" mean to you? And not like you love your parents, but how you love that special someone.
twentyfourhourslater saidLove, Hmmmmmmmmmm.
I would say when you FREELY put his needs before your own.
When his happiness is just as important or more important as your own happiness.
When you freely give of yourself and expect nothing in return.
When his presence adds to your quality of life.
Knowing you could NEVER hurt the person by cheating or lying to them.
When all of the above - are still present 1 year after meeting him - then you know it is love and not lust.
I have had the good fortune of being in love 3 times in my adult life and am looking forward to the fourth time.
Pierrecadot saidI am sure this won't be popular, but oh well.
After years of being together, the thrill of them holding you is often diminished, conversation is sometimes non existent and making out is last on the list. However, that doesn't mean that love is lost.

Not sure where the love is in all that! Those are the things I think are true love, without them, you're not in love, you're roommates!
err.. I mean.
Love is a bubble bath with Mariah Carey purring in the backround on the stereo.
ItsMyLife saidLove true love is a whole shit load of work. Love is being able to have make up sex
wanting to bring him home to your parents
(even if you know they would approve)
it has its ups and downs
yes it is all those wonderful things in the start but after a while it fades.
Also love well the feeling of love is universal and an undying truth, but the understanding of love... well that is up to the two people in love
Someone wanting to make you a better version of yourself while allowing you to have your own journey is about as romantic as it gets for me.
everyone knows i think janet is god. ergo, i retract my previous statement about love. i am now playing "rollercoaster" in order to absorb the gospel.
