What is true love?

True love has been known for years to be forever. I am starting to doubt the meaning of forever when it comes to relationships and love. Today movies such as 'The Notebook', gives people an understanding that love has it's downfalls as well as its ups. I felt this movie was a great love story, but is it really how people view love to be? EX: I know a lot of people who wishes that they could have the love they see in these types of movies. When the love is not like the movies, we feel as if something is wrong in our relationship. Do these movies truly define what true love means? Or are we just dreaming?

I have been in a loving relationship for seven years, and i've come to believe that true love is, above all, unconditional. Wanting to be there for the person you love in times of crisis, accepting them for who they really are and not who you want them to be, and being able to trust eachother with your deepest secrets and fears, being able to be yourself without fear of being judged or rejected. There's so much more to it than that, but that's the easiest and most tangible way I can think of to describe true love.
