What is LOVE?

A world without love would be like our entire nature without butterflies. Love is a strong bond shared by two individuals. Love is best seen as devotion and action. When a person falls in love, he or she becomes isolated from the entire world. In love, a person sees the other person's flaws and still loves him or her. Love is selfless. The other name of love is sacrifice. Only if one has true love one can make others happy. A true lover never needs words. He or she proves it by their actions. Love always waits. In an entire life span of a person true love happens only once.

"LOVE" This caption attracts many in life, especially if you are single. Everybody has a unique definition for this four letter word. Simply, it's being selfless. To give away anything(even that which is very special and dear to your heart) without expecting anything in return.

World is hungry for love. Everybody wants love but noone knows what is true love. They think that physical contact is true love. Love is selfless. It does not harm others. Being happy in others happiness is true love.

Love is the innermost feeling of a person that cannot be enforced.

God made this world so vast and big. There are billion people in it. But one person becomes so much important for you that you can not survive with out him or her. if that person is happy you become happy and cheerfull and if that person is sad you become sad. Your love is with you in your thoughts and mind all the time and no matter how far you are you are always missing him or her,thinking about your partner and loving him or her. Love is the second name of trust and sincerity. Some people say love is mysterious,imaginary,magical,complex,difficult,thought-provoking,inspirational and undefineable,perhaps. Love is patient,love is kind,it does not envy,it does not boast,it is not proud,it is not rude,it is not self seeking,it will always protect,always trust,always hope and always preserve. Love is a thread that bounds two people together forever.

You have described it so beautifully. I would suggest you to go and read Khalil Gibran's "Broken Wings". Your thoughts are so true and very close to Gibran's writings. Maybe you have already studied it. He described love as romantically as no one can ever do again. His love Selma Karamy is now a symbol of Love across the whole world.

It's a give and take process. Love is so easy to spell but so hard to explain,so hard to define and so hard to let go. But you can noticed that everyone is still taking the risk. Love is an emotion accompanied by words and actions. It's a lifetime experience. That's love.

Yes love means to be truly enticed by the influence of the other that you dont see any faults at all and you try to see him or her as your only survior. It makes u blind to gound realities and be under the heavy influence of the other. Since we cant seperate ourselves from the lover we thik that he/she is the last person on earth who will be capable to delivering the same in return.

For me there is no definite meaning of love. Because this words people have different interpretation and all of this interpretation is life belong to love. This is the words that no one can resist and no one will be held accountable...Love is life...

I think that you are right about what love is. I think to truly be in love makes more sense of the world then to not have love. As far as it happening only once that's true too. It'd be nice if it happened more then once, it'd be nice if it could last a life time too. I think it's hard to remember what love was, I think that we take it for granted and then when it's gone we realize that that's what love is and we miss so so much.

For me, the best description of love is from 1 Corinthians 13 of the Bible. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.

love is a person. God is love. Man is created with a soul which is composed of his mind, emotion and will. Emotion includes many feelings, it includes happiness, sadness, love, hatred, etc. Man tend to love becaus he is created with an emotion. and We are created according to the image and likeness of God. God has a feeling. He is love itself. therefore, we human beings also have the ability to love.

Hi there friend.. I think everyone has alreadu give their thoughts and views about love and they based it on their experiences and understanding. I would like to make it a little bit different by sharing this Bible verses that talks about LOVE and What real LOVE is. 1 Corinthians 13 4-7 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight with evil but rejoices withthe truth. It always protect, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." I hope that the verse that I have given to you friend will help you to learn more about love and what love really is. Love is the greatest thing the we can give and receive. Without love we are nothing..

True love endures, action based, proactive. It is found in many facets of life. Love is meant to be shared. Love is not based on feelings, for if you base it upon that, then it will definitely fade. There is as song by Clint Black and they lyrics goes, "Love is not a noun. It is not a verb. It's not in something that we have, but in something that we do." It is ironic to say that you love someone but you don't do anything to show that person that you love.

There are so many feelings and we use only one word- love. And that is why nobody can say what exactly is love.

This may sound cheesy however love is corny. You do the stupidest things when you are in love. You forget yourself often and lose your inhibition without you noticing it.

Love is the universal language. It has no inhibitions or rules. Love knows no boundaries. Love has no age or religion. Love is the deepest emotion. It is something we all need to feel.
