kamalvv, I noticed you have not responded to any answers to your questions. I, and I'm certain others who wrote would like your view of their answers. Thank you, Maggie

No I don't think true love is a myth. And giving love in return of love is the best thing I think. Some people take money in return of love, that is not good. Anyway i still believe in true love and waiting for it to happen :)

No, not really. True love still exists. Only, it is more difficult to find nowadays. It will appear that finding that true love has become more and more complicated as the world gets filled with more and more people. It is true though that what abounds now are people offering love which you will think at first to be a true one. Only to find later on that it was offered only because they see that the person has good things to offer in life. So just beware. Be careful on choosing the person you will take into marriage. Most love offers now are not selfless but, selfish. I am a victim of one. My fault. I failed to read in between the lines.

Hi kamalvv I believe it definitely exists, but it took me almost 25 years to find it. (That's 25 years after what I thought was love). I think too often times, people fall in love with concept or idea of a person, and then apply that to a person. Basically they find someone who they think "fills the bill", and if that person responds in the positive, then "love" can start. Usually it's someone that they are familiar with. As they grow together, each of them tend to overlook differences in the other person, as everyone has differences. But sometimes those differences should not be overlooked, like feelings on children, for example. Eventually this leads to finding yourself "wanting", as it did in my case. Once that want becomes overpowering, the perceived love breaks down over time. I have been with my "true love" now for 10+ years. My first marriage did not last that long. How do I know it's true? I want...nothing.

as an optimist, I want to think that it is really exist. but I am not really sure about it though. my parents they have been married for almost 23 years. when I asked my papa whether he loved my mom, he said nope. so why so long? I think respects, responsible and things seconds them. well, but trully I wish I can find my love later. and nice JJzone, you found your love ne. :)

Hy kyrararen Keep your optimistic approach as that is an important aspect of finding true love. Also remember that the person you fall in love with is an extension of yourself, not a mirror image. So seek, and you shall find, but remember it takes time; you might not know at once the person looking back at you is your true love. Only time will reveal this to you. I have heard it said that the love you feel when you first meet a person is actually lust masquerading as love; then eventually the lust wanes as the love grows. As to why your dad said what he did no one really knows. Love is not tangible; it can't be quantified by any of the 5 senses. But it is real, and perhaps you dad does love you mom, he just does not know it. Respect and responsibility are actually components of love, as you would respect, and feel responsible for the one that you love. Happy Mylotting!

Love is a gift we receive when we are born, from life, is life itself, the essence of life, he is in us but is dormant until it is activated only when you are giving and devoting him feel we can keep . Love is a gift we receive in life when we are born, and only devoting one another we can keep it, love has no value and it manifests itself only when one gives, you can receive love only love Giving it is the paradox to feel great because the gift of life and to keep should you spend. When you live truly love the one who gives him love, you experience this wonderful feeling in terms of each other, and everything you are, and what you want, it does not matter, you die and be born in your loved one, so love frees you. You can not feel love than loving, and you can not paste but gave it. You can not experience in terms of self, but only through the person you love when two people love one another and they live in one place to another are one and the same person, unite into a sublime being, a being supreme, complete.

ya true love is a myth..infact even love has no meaning.. Its just a result of some chemical reaction in our brain due to the action of some hormones.. The whole idea of love being juz some chemical product can be infuriating but its the truth... Even with all this reasons its the individuals perception that matters You can believe anything you want..You can receive advices from many telling the prons and cons of love...But in the end what that matters is what you want and think... So look for it yourself...

I never have found true love. I never will find true love. To me it does not exist. It might for some and I really have not seen it in people who say their are in love. I see to many marriage that have failed. I see marriages that are still going on but shouldn't be! So I am saying is I don't see alot of people happy much less in love! You need both to have true love!

I don't think nor feel that true love is gone. I have true love. Its the man I married, and have a child with. True love can be found if only you are happy with being yourself and let love find you and not you trying to fine love. Love is never lost or gone. What that men said was true, love is selfless but its not and act of giving. True love is about loving the person for who that person is, you don't try to change them you just love them, and accept them for who they are and they do the same for you.

It's seems so true, friend. Because if you give her love, she will give you love also... The things now is not what the heart being dictate but a condition of exchange something...

I don't believe that true love is just a myth, i will always believe that true love is out there for us to find. It may not always be an easy course to follow but i believe that true love does exist.
