How do you measure love?

hell0 people! My question to you is How do you measure love? how do you weight up that the person you are with loves you and and which are the criteria for that? Do you measure it by the nice words he/she say to you or maybe by the times of saying "I love you"? How do you measure it?

Hello sweetie. I measure love by compassion. The more compassionate you are in beign with me, the more you will be loved. TATA.

I tend to expose my negative aspects in front of her. If she shows the abilities to accept it with warm regards or try to change it through her love, then i am damn sure that she is my real love.

hi! yeah, if she really accept you the way you are with all your strengths and weaknesses then she really loves you. if not- then you don't have to waste your time with that girl!

I measure love if the person is willing to sacrifice alot of things and time just to be with me. And just to help me out. This is not a requirement i just want to know if the person truly cares for me or not . In these times many people say i love you or they care for you but the reality is its not true and pure at all. Thats why if they are willing to sacrifice for you then its very much likely that they really feel for you

hell0! yes, i also think that people who love each other must be ready to sacrifice many things just to show their partner that they really love him/her!

You cannot measure love just because someone is saying i love you. Sometimes its just a word that has no meaning at all. Some just say it just beacuse they want to but they dont really mean it. You can measure love when you take risk and sacrifice in your relationship. Your ready to face every troubles, trials and problems that will come your way.

I guess if the other person is capable of putting you before themselves, that would be one good sign that it's really love.

I would have to say there is no real way to measure love. There are a lot of different ways to love someone also. The love you have for your family is different from the love you feel for your friends. They are both different from the romantic love you feel for your partner. If your partner tells you he loves you it is just words. It is more important for them to act like they care about you. Probably the best way to judge that, is if you feel you can expose all your "bad" aspects and not have to worry if they will leave you or not.

Hey phoenix! Love comes in all different sizes, shapes and types! We all have different types and forms of love for different people! I have friends that I love, but that is one kind of love~ I love my Mom, and that is another kind of love! I love my cats and to me that is the ultimate kind of love because it is unconditional love because they don't ask for anything but food and water and "Mommies" petting time! And to me that is the most special love! I love my boyfriend, but he loves me more like a "friend" and "partner". We seem to have a different definition of love and have problems with our relationship right now because of it! So, I don't know exactly how you measure love, but I do know that it does vary!

In my opinion , there is no way to measure LOVE. It depends on YOU , how to estimate it.If you are a emotional person , then it is very difficult for the person LOVING you, to express his / her love , especially if he / she is a practical person. I hope , I am able to express myself?

i think there is no device or way to measure love. i think you can feel this only. even if you have any way to measure this and you cant feel this then there is no mean to be with some one in love. i think this is really not good to even think to get the measurement of these beautiful thing
