'' I would like to have an eternal love,, few days ago, i saw an old couple holding hands in the car park after they got off from their car, they walk together slowly but happily, i can feel it even i saw their back, then when the women need to leave , the guy gave her a goodbye kiss..'

Well I have eternal love. My wife and I have been married for 30 years. It doesn't seem that long which is why we have been in love this many years. You have to be willing to be committed to the relationship. The key is great communication. We had to learn this at the beginning of our marriage. Things were not always smooth but we were both committed to making the relationship last and that is another key. Also, trust and forgiveness are needed. I lost my wife's trust once but she forgave me and because we were committed to our relationship we made it. Another key is compromise. That is when the two of you don't see eye to eye on a situation you need to talk (not shout) it out and reach a compromise. Its not that hard to do if you are not stubborn. And again it depends on your commitment to the relationship. Well I have probably said enough. Feel free to ask me more about my marriage. I am open to helping anyone who wants to have a long lasting relationship.

This is not something that i know about. But I myself have always wondered myself in my own life. You know if it will ever be possible. Seeing other couples is nice, OK.. not really! But to have that sort of love, only comes once in a lifetime. Doesn't it? I think at one point we have all been there to have something so real not knowing when it got there or what the feeling it has over us. From my understanding it suppose to make things some much more simpler or at least clearer. This is, I hate to admit it but, a feeling that I would like or love to have in my life. The thought of the possibilty which I'm feeling right now as I write this,... is so gratifying!

Yes, I think you can love someone forever no matter what. You could go through life and love or like or marry other people but I think that there is someone out there who you love and will love forever, and if you happen to be with them then I belive your love will live on after you die; in stories, in song, in movies, or just in the hearts of others who knew you. Love is eternal.

..eternal love is wat everyone wish for but very few gets it.. it's not like special person are designed for it but the other person lose it by themselves..by there mistakes. Eternal love doesn't come by a wing in its back, tiara in its head and of course not by a tattoo in its forehead markin "i'm your eternal love"... it's upon you ... how far you can take your love and pass it to the level of eternal love? Just understand your love who is behind you..its better rather than hoping for someone better who would make your life even more better and try to make the person's life better so he/she wouldn't have to wish for someone else or regret for he/she has choosen you. Try living in the present it makes your love life even better. And for the answer..ya there is eternal love..it just depeds upon you.

My eternal love was 14years of wonderful marriage with two kids being born wonderful life which was interrupted at 14 years by the news my wife had Aids. I cared for her the next 13 years until she passed away. I think that was truly eternal love. I have been lucky and met another wonderful women since and am married again and growing more in love each day.

i do believe in eternal love. actually, i had some short term serious relationships, too before. i thought they were the one but things just went out wrong someday. i had a relationship for 8 years before. but i say, i was emotionally abused. yet, i thought that if i will keep on giving it a chance, it will go well one day. but after how many times he cheated on me, he never stopped doing so. i think it's already in his system already. and that's sad. but i am glad that i had been already gone in that abusive relationship. after a year from the break up, i met a wonderful man through an exchange email site. we had been friends for months, we chatted later and after a few more months, we fell inlove and tried if this time it will work. distance always has been a hindrance. but we did it. with much love, trust, loyalty, honesty and will to fight for the relationship, we will be having our first anniversary soon. and i am glad to say that he's the man i am going to marry soon. we talked about marriage already and this time, i say it's forever.

I too envy elderly couples strolling in the park hand-in-hand towards the end of their journey. And I look forward to such a day too. To have eternal love, one needs to be able to understand the behaviour of mankind in all aspects. It takes a couple of short term relationships to learn and master the intrinsics of love. Hence, I want both - short term relationship and ultimately eternal love.

ofcourse i as a human need an eternal love but i did ot find it yet...wish one day i can have it...anyway...eternal love is a qualified love...eternal love doesn't mean as a love ever after...but what can we study from the love...ofcourse everything to be existed in our love and life...

If I had to make a choice I would go for the 'several short intense affairs' rather than a long lasting relationship .. I guess I am too fickle to want to stay with any one partner for more than a decade or so .. But what I prefer most is having no relationship at all .. since I gave up trying to find the 'perfect partner' I have been much happier and far more content ...

I believe in eternal love, and it's much more satisfying that several short term relationships. My last three relationships were all long term ones. I spent 4 years with one guy, 4 and a half with my ex, and now, almost three years with my current partner. I feel that the relationship I'm in now is the one I was meant to be in all along. I've never been so happy before and being treated with respect was a whole new concept for me when we first started out together. He treats me like a queen, and although we have our arguments from time to time, we're mature enough and secure enough with each other that we can sit down and discuss out issues in an open and honest manner. It's something that I had to get used to doing. I never was given the opportunity before to actually have a say in certain issues.

I am not sure if this is eternal love,but my g/f and I consider each other to be soulmates which I believe is deeper as we consider that to mean in our next lives as well(if such a thing exists).We feel we will be bonded for ever.

Personally speaking,I don`t like eternal love.First, I don`t know he is a real girl,maybe "she" is a boy.If that,that`s a bad news.Do you think so?Second,even if she is a girl,how can i know if she has a boyfriend.Third,eternal love is usually short term,after all we can`t see each other every day.what`s worse,she is so distant from me when i want to kiss her,do you aslo think this is the worst thing?Fourth,she says that she is twenty,maybe she is doubled twenty.In all,i don`t want to have eternal love!

Twenty six years is not an eternity but that is how long I have been with my husband. I hope we can at least make it to our 60th anniversary. I want to sit on the same porch my grandparents did with my own husband watching the same sun setting over the same lake every evening. I love the comfort and security of "eternal love". I would not trade for anything.

Well I have eternal love,although i met her only a few times cause her house is far it is around 100km from my town. My wife and I have been married for 21 years. It doesn't seem that long which is why we have been in love this many years. You have to be willing to be committed to the relationship. The key is great communication. We had to learn this at the beginning of our marriage. Things were not always smooth but we were both committed to making the relationship last and that is another key. Also, trust and forgiveness are needed. I lost my wife's trust once but she forgave me and because we were committed to our relationship we made it,it happen when i gave something to my parent without her knowing. Another key is compromise. That is when the two of you don't see eye to eye on a situation you need to talk , it out and reach a compromise. Its not that hard to do if you are not stubborn. And again it depends on your commitment to the relationship,Do not hesitate to ask me more about my marriage. I am open to helping anyone who wants to have a long lasting relationship

I hope to have eternal love one day as well. I have been with my fiance for over 7 years and will be together for 8 when we finally tie the knot. We have had out ups and downs, but i would never want to know life without him. The few days that i was without him was hell on earth. We fight of course but we always make up. My grandparents are my role model. They have beeen together for over 60 years and will soon complete 54 years of married life. I hope to be like them some day. They are still so in love with each other and cnanot do without one another for even a few hours.
