Yes it might be a simple question but then simple questions are the ones which are harder to answer. We know that we are loving a person but we don't know how. I mean literally tell if we are doing it because we tend to lose ourselves with what we do. :) When i love i would give a reason for that special person to love me back if not then i would still do it. I sometimes don't think about myself i would just go out and do it. We are full of love all we have to do is share it.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love. In my eyes, love is one thing that is easily said than done. You see, everyone can say "I love you", but not all people can show their love to others with actions and efforts. Love is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day. Love means you should make great efforts to another and don't expect for any return. Everything may change someday, but true love is forever.

Yes you gotta show a little effort. Back then I would usually throw "i love you" away just for the sake of sounding sincere as i grew older I learned how to truly love and what the words really meant and how important it is. Love really frees us all. Even just by talking about it. Everything may change someday, but true love is forever. -and hard to find

love topic is not easy,truthfully not everyone knows unconditional love or the universal love the love for all,some only know the personal love and thats the love of a specific thing in there lives,a cat a dog a rat a flower,just the neighbour over on the left not on the right just a few family member and the list goes on and on.that kind of love is not the highest love of all,it is love which is a start to the love current in us all but that kind of love is filled with attachment,and attachment brings alot of hatred,not every one in a unconditional way could answer the truest facts of love many coming to this topic is gonna give u there experience of love in a personal way,i could go deeper with the topic but i am not gonna spoil the fun of it lets see what others have to say,but there are two types of love that i know of unconditional,which is the love for all things even when u r in the deepest of hatred for that thing,show love and how can you do this u might ask?good question.there are 2 keys' that you can use to let the universal love current flow through you constantly,1,love god with all your soul and heart,and ask to free the power of love to you so u can understand more how to live in love,2 after you have given your love to god fully,then god in return will give you a key name relaxation,relaxing will open up the universal love current in you getting rid of all hatred that consumed you,you want to try this method go around someone you hate very much and just relax when u r around this person,never being mindfull of what this person did or said no matter how long give it some time while relaxing and forgetting and then u will start seeing and feeling the love current inside of you just smoothing you getting rid of that hatred u had for that person,just forgetting until u have been totally relaxed,thats love taking over and it comes in the strongest form called relaxation,and thats how i love unconditionally cause i am apart of the universe so i have to practice the love for all things,may the blessings be

Thank you for the reply, indeed you have to maximize your love rather than hate and also love god and yourself too. Love can indeed be achieve if you stop hating. Drown out your hate and let the love current flow.

first of all you have to know what love is....Love is a complex thing.Love is an emotion, it is a true devotion to someone beyond yourself, not only your boyfriend/girlfriend it can also be someone like your mom or a family member. When in love their need to be trust.For example, trusting with your eyes closed, caring nurturing believing, and never expecting nothing in return is the most simplest deffinition for love but like i said earlier "LOVE IS A COMPLEX THING". Also love is a feeling that one feels deep into his or her soul. But when love comes you will know and there won't be anything to hold you back from LOVING...:D

WOW, hehe. So all in all love is really hard to understand. We could never explain the things we do but as long as we feel good. :) thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Yes, it is a very simple question, but quite difficult to answer. My husband and I would always remind ourselves to love unconditionally meaning without conditions, without expecting anything in return. We try as much as possible to do this in our relationship as husband and wife, our relationship towards our child, and even towards other people. Like when something bad happens or if someone has done something bad towards us, we remind ourselves to love unconditionally and forgive. This has been our guide in loving and in our relationships and we are happier for this.

Each person has different way to show their love, so there won't be a standard answer for this question, and I think the mood of happiness of the one who receive this love is the most obvious answer. Personally, I think that love is sacrifice without reason and giving without condition. It requires us to learn not only taking warming cares of what we're handling but also being great enough to put willingly them into a worthier hand.

As afr sa I'm concerned , I think live is just making the person you love happy . That's so easy. you should try your best to make her or him happy .Let her or him can laugh all the time.And give her or him what he need.

No matter who it is I tend to become a mother figure when I love someone. I have a theory on why too. Growing up I remember asking my Mom how do you know if you love someone, jer answer was if you love some one you care more about their happieness than your own. I think that might be what started it because when I care I really do try to take care of that person often in wways that they will never even see. It's weird but hey my hubby loves it(he's spoiled).

Well, let me start it by defining what is love... For me, love is giving something and not thinking of any returns... Based on my definition of love, it is how I apply it. It was just easy for me to execute it because it was just spontaneous and natural... When you love someone, you deny yourself... When you love someone, it feels like it's a fulfillment in your part that you have shared something without thinking that she'll give back anything... When you love someone, you always want to feel her presence... When you love someone, you always want to please her... With all those description above, I could say that's how I could do for love...

That's so pure love,I admire you. However,it is not common in the older ages,though love is still the most important thing to each other.But love is not the only thing.As you know,you should do something for existence and you don't have enough time to do that,and you know which it is much important in reality.Love someone in heart is the most practical way to the one you love and it means you love her(him) forever.

Love is a must in our life, or else we will be so lonely. Like Adam and Eve, I think that love is so pure, that everyone who get involve will get the benefits from it. Falling in love doesn't have any particular reason, when our body and mind think that he/she is the one, than maybe heart doesn't lie. I hope you will be happy with your spouse until the end of your life, a everlasting love.

I think that love and support go hand in hand. Part of loving someone is supporting the needs ans wants of the other person. Being there just to listen and not to judge. Not having to be in control of everything. Just being a pillar of support for someone say I Love You in so many different ways.

love is expressed in various forms. the common expressions are in words and actions. the easiest and most known expression is the word itself, "i love you." but love is also expressed in many actions. for example, by simply spending time with someone and enjoying his/her presence, one is loving. or by taking care someone is also loving. thoughts can also be loving acts, since good thoughts release energy for the significant others.

Love comes in many forms. There are many ways to love, and some ways aren't always the best and then again some ways are for the best of the or a person. "Tough Love" comes to mind as a kind of love that is hard to do without upsetting another person. Of course, if we all smile, say thank you, mind our manners, and just be generally kind we are "loving" our fellow neighbors! Love in the home is helping out around the house, or preparing a favorite meal, etc.
