If you have it, you really don't need anything else. If you don't, no matter what else you have, it will never be enough to make you happy. Even when you have love you worry about losing it, and so you read articles to find out how to keep it. And if you have already lost love, you read articles to find out how to get it back. they say that if you hold on to love too tightly, it will slip through your fingers, like quick-silver. Or if you do not hold on to it tightly enough you may lose it. If you love the wrong things or love for the wrong reasons, you will soon discover that the object of your love was not what you wanted after all. And yet it is right to want love and to look for it, because love is our birthright! But true love is not something that disappears easily. True love is eternal and unconditionally. It is strong and unbreakable, and makes your life a joyful one. When love is real, it becomes a mirror that we hold for each other and in that mirror only the best and most beautiful things are seen.

This is my first encounter with one of your posts. In looking through other posts you have made and of course this specifically you intelligence shines through. You truly have a gift for words. I have found over the years that there is a marked difference between what we perceive as love in the beginning of a relationship and what it evolves into over time. For me 'True Love' is not that excitement we all feel when we first meet and become enraptured by each other but rather it is the realization that this one person is all and more than you thought when you first met. And with each passing day,with each passing year, you discover that very special something that has brought your hearts together. Not the passion and fire but what comes with truly knowing and loving that person. Some call it a soul mate. True love comes from knowing everything there is to know about someone and loving them for it. The passion may have subsided but when you discover that you have 'True Love' you then know true happiness.

It looks like our paths never cross in all the years we are here. I am thrill to see a senior member coming to my post for the very first time. Thank you for the wonderful compliments you bestowed upon me and it has indeed added another feather to my cap from your praises. I love to release my views in a way that could capture the hearts of my readers and try as I can to play around with the beautiful english words available within the strength of my knowledge in this language. I can say you have given me a deeper insight what true love really mean and how it grows to magnetize the hearts of the love-birds. It is the beauty of love that really makes the world go round and people in possession of true love will always lead a long and happy life. If only 'love' manifests in all humans' hearts, this world will not be torn with wars and peace will prevail throughout the years. Unfortunately, it is not to be, hatred and anger supersede the power of love.

True love is something to appreciate and enjoy, but one thing should be kept in mind. Nothing is unchangeable, esp with things that involve more than one party. To keep love lasting, we must not leave it as it is or take it for granted. Constant cultivation, and gift of humor are needed both ways. Otherwise, either internal or external factors might bring about changes. Keep in mind the goodwill reminding, and God bless you.

it is true that one will need to cultivate the kind of loving relationship that the couple is having. however, if two people are sharing true love, this is never a difficult thing to do. and, achieving a heavenly life together is almost effortless. love, true love, bridges all gaps. with true love, one is able to do what must be done so lightheartedly, so very easily.

This is truly beautifully written and must come from a heart that knows or has known true love. There is love and there is true love. Love is beautiful and sustains us for a time. But often we want more. True love leaves you wanting for nothing other than the one you are with. Often times I have thought that true love only is allowed once in your lifetime. As time goes by and life moves on, I think maybe, just maybe we are allowed to feel that once more. the feelings that come with it are immeasuable. The emotions, the way your body shakes at just the thought of the one you love and the way yourmind never really stops thinking about that person are all signs that it is true love... The bible verse tells us what love is: 1st Corinthians 13:4-7 says "love is patient and kind, does not envy or boast nor is it arrogant or rude. It does not insist on it's own way, it is not irritable or resentful. It does not rejoice in wrong doings nor remembers or holds to be wronged but rejoices in truths. Love bears all things, believes all things,hopes all things and love Endures all things." True love is really personified in this passage and shows us that when you are in love you are patient with things that may occur with the one you love. You understand that they are individuals and that they sometimes need to knoww you will be there when they can settle in. When you are in love you find forgiveness where you might not be as forgiving with someone you just love. Being in love means there is nothing you would not do for that person, including lay down your life for them. But the feeling.............. the unbelievable, heart touching, soul holding, body reacting, mind spinning, almost crazy, want to be with them all the time feeling, not to forget the "stimulation and stirring of ones body..... THOSE feeling scream "I am In Love" to the entire world. Or at least to your heart and soul. lol Once you have it, just like you said, it does NOT just go away. It is strong and beautiful and filled with Excitement. If you feel like you are in heaven every time you see her, then my friend, YOU are in Love...

Never give up on the one you love. Love is magical at times. Love is the most powerful force of all, must be used constructively. One of the mistakes we make is that we seek love on the outside, when really it lies within. We try to use and direct love, rather than become it. Our principal mistake is that we mix love with attachment until,fettered with need and dependency, it becomes conditioned. On the one hand, we seek to direct and determine who is worthy of love while, on the other hand we find we cannot trust it. By touching someone's heart you prompt them to change. Even though you may not see the results immediately, love always works.

You are beautiful in your words. They are spoken from the heart and hold so much truth. The true beauty is when the changes come from within the loves heart and not from a request. To want to be better, to be more, to chnage oneself but not ones personality is Love. In that the person loving you loves you exactly as you are, you yourself may find that you wish to make self changes to be able to be with that person for a long time. Love is powerful and has no boundaries when it is true love. Only that you treat one another with kindness and respect. this was beautifully written from a beautiful heart... Always, D

I heard that true love will always follow you, no matter what you do in your life. So, if a person you think you are in love is not with you then he/she was not made for you. If you love wants to go out from your life, Let him/her go because if it is your true love then it would come back to you!

It is only the faint shadow of love that is following you. True love is stuck in the heart and not following a person.

I didn't get you. The shadow of love follows you and it doesn't follow a person. What do you mean by that? Does it mean that the person who has true for you, will not come back but only her/his love will follow! Confused! Sorry.

Hi! Dear! It appears that you have written a fantastic brief on 'love' and how to preserve it. Wonderfully written, I appreciate your jargon of words. You know very well, how to play with words and make your expressions exceptionally effective. You are right, we keep looking for those things, which we do not have or we have those things, we wish that no body should take it away from us. We always long for more and more and we crave for eternal. One of the great Philospher has said - [i]"There are two tragidies in a man/woman's life - (i) To get a thing; (ii) or Not to get a thing.[/i] I wish you many more happy moments when you could visualise 'true love' in the mirror.

Thanks for being appreciative of this discussion. There is nothing more to add to your well given response. To all who are in love or who are in a loving relationship will definitely agree to this post. It is undeniably the true characters of romeos and juliets. If you truly want to be happy, use every moment in a worthwhile way. Accept and appreciate the role of the one you love and you'll remain loving and happy.

My first love i could say took a while to develop into a true love. She became my gf but it doesnt mean that what we have is true love already its the things we do together that build a strong foundation between the two of us and then later having shared a lot with this person we realized that little by little we became deeply in love with each other. But sad to say it wasnt a happy ending for me with this girl for now I am still open to the possibility of finding the love that once was lost. hopefully soon.

it really takes time to find out. and risks are always involved. i think it's really hard to tell for sure how your significant other truly feels for you - if it's really true love or just trying to experiment for it to start

lol....true love comes at a lightning speed when it strikes the cupid heart which brings the adrenalin rushing wildly in our veins and makes the heart pumping madly when the right person comes along. No words can ever describe the beauty of true love. True love is so incredibly powerful. It brings the greatest happiness to ones life.

very true! most of the time i am thinking of what makes it true..there are lots of people when they say they find true love but in the end they regret saying it and they regret being with that person they called they found a true love with..i guess when you say its true love then it means, your not just plain happy but you are contented..you don't seek much and when you appreciate little things that your love does..true love is when, they create mistake but above all that we are willing to forgive and guide them on to how they can change and fix what was done wrong..true love is not about asking back what you given to your love one..it is when you feel pure happiness because you made them happy even without them giving back the favor that you gave them to make them happy...for me that's what true love means...

I am glad you found true love. What ever true love means it is all up to individuals to interpret it and absorb it in their relationships. For me I am lost in space and haven't found the real meaning of it myself. Sad but I am a survivor in my marriage.

it is true that true love brings forth joy, happiness and contentment in life. it is sad, zandi, that i was not blessed enough to have found a man who will give me this state in life. i may be envious of those who are happily married but, this will not at all alleviate the condition that i am in. what i do then, it to be happily settled with my children by my side. as of now, my two boys are with me and my eldest, a daughter, is now residing in another country. it is her choice, i hope that she is happy and contented where is now. for my children, i am hoping that each one of them will find their true loves. for it is only in being with one's true love that contentment in life can be achieved.

It is sad to hear your side of story trinid, but you should be very thankful that you have your sons to stand by you. Even though it is true that there comes a time when the plain fact of sin, real or contemplated, must be faced in someone on whom you have pinned your hope for marriage seems unfaithful. Someone who has stood before the altar of God with you and promised faithfulness forgets those vows. As christians we must forgive the erring ones and love them inspite of their sin.

Sounds great! Zandi, are you a love advisor? I can see a beautiful poem in your words and give me many inspirations and feelings, I will folow your advise to face my GF:-) As we know that, love can not be taught but can get help by our friends or other people, so in the face of the love everyone is equal and everyone make their best to persuit the beloved person, during this periord and if they have a good result, absolutely love can bring happiness while it is a bad result, the happiness would not exist and the upset can follow one's life

Suku as an 'old timer' I don't really know how people react to being in love nowadays. Whether they still uphold the beauty of love that was handed to us from Adam and Eve or people has become individualistic and as you say only love themselves.
