Love is when you care,when you always want to be by his side,when you feel safe,when you need him,when you close your eyes and see your futur with him.

Love is when you can be yourself around the person, think straight and still make the right decisions, all the while feeling happier than a clam in the mud at the bottom of the ocean

I would go with Gumdrop Girl's discription, but I think 'love' is different for everybody. Love for me is feeling that I can let go and be me around a person. When I know that I can talk to him about anything without real worry that he'll laugh in my face - no matter what. When I know that I can trust him.

For me, love is just someting that you KNOW. There's no specific characteristic of love, because everyone experiences it differently. It just is.

To me, love is wanting to be with someone because they make you feel happy. And even when they don't make you feel so great, you know that's okay, because the good times outwiegh the bad. It's more than just that, I know, but as far as I'm concerned that covers the fundamentals.

Love is a wonderful thing. It's truly one of life's best experiences. Love gives you the opportunity to learn and grow. Love is a great teacher. Love is an intense emotion. I abide by this famous quote, "It's better to have loved and lost, than never have loved at all". I have learned one of love's greatest lessons, "you don't look for love, and it comes you naturally". Love runs on its own course. We don't choose love, it chooses us. I have been in relationships with
Guys and each one has its own meaning. We learn what we want to see in someone, and that person unconsciously teaches us a lesson. No one is perfect so you love your significant other or crush for who they are. Even though i have been in love numerous times, I didn't find true love until May of 2001 at 17 in Isaiah. It can surprise us that true friendships can turn to love. This special someone of mine makes me feel i am in heaven or on cloud nine. He is truly the one I want to be with the rest of my life. We all find true love at different times, it chooses you. When my cupid struck me with love, i wasn't even looking for it at the time, he found me
So appreciate love in all aspects of life. It has its mysteries, challenges but the best of yet; it's the most powerful and even the most private emotion to experience in a lifetime. Love conquers all things. I know this, because it has tested its waters on my soulmate, Isaiah in the toughest situations imaginable and me!
I conclude this with this quote that sums up love, "Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand." ~Mother Teresa

This is what I think love is.

When you can act yourself around them,when they make you feel good about yourself, when you always want the moment to last when your with them, when they are all you can think about, when you dream about them at night, when you hear a love song come on they are always the one you think about, when you always want to be by them, when you can talk to them about anything, when you feel happy with them, when you see them your heart skips a beat, when they help you make good decisions and not bad ones, when you know you'll always love them, even when they dont always love you back. That's how I feel about love. The list keeps on going.

To me, love is a very unique, strong, and passionate feeling. It can also be friendly. It depends on the person feeling it, and the person or thing he/she is guiding it to. When I say I love my boyfriend, what I mean is that I only want to be with him, I feel passion when we are together, I can't stand to be away from him, that he amazes me with everything he does or says, but also that we have so much history that I know it couldnt have been as good as it was or will never be as good as it can be with him

When I tell my dad, my brother, or any member of my family that I love them, that love is a different love, yet very similar. I respect them for the support and the guidance they've given me. Along with my friends. I tell my best friend I love her every time I see her. Its about appreciation. I appreciate everything she has done for me.

And my pets. They give me something none of the above can. They are unique in their own ways. I love them as well.

Someone or something special has made an impact on your life, and has made it's way into your heart. That feeling for him/her/it is love.

Love is also hurting for someone or something. When I experienced the death of my mom, my fiance, and my grandmother . . The pain I felt was love. I couldn't bare to be without them because I loved them all so much.

Wow! It is harder to explain it than to feel it. But it truly is amazing. Thats my bit. Thanks for listening
