to give ALL of your self to a person/s/cause and to expect NOTHING back. It is not an action like sex or a kiss. It is a mental/physical/spiritual thing. TO understand one allows you to feed the thousands, to grasp all, is beyond all of human comprehension
A love that surpasses all understanding

That feeling where all you want to do is be with that one special person. It isn't a race to see how far you can get with them. It's when you're happy just to lay with them and feel their presence. Nothing can surpass that feeling. Don't use the word on every person, wait until you find someone who truly touches your heart.
I love him so much, i never want to leave when I'm with him.

what is love? love is that feeling u get w/e ur w/ that special someone. and you will still get this feeling even if uve been together for 10 years. love is when u would die, give up everything for that one person.It's when you trust the other with your life and when you would do anything for each other. When you love someone you want nothing more than for them to be truly happy no matter what it takes because that's how much you care about them and because their needs come before your own. You hide nothing of yourself and can tell the other anything because you know they accept you just the way you are and vice versa.

i mean love is too complicated to explain.. well heres something that is pretty close..well as close as ive gotten:

its when u except there faults bcuz they're a part of who you are; when u stay w/ them no matter what and faithfully without regret. its when u would give them your heart, your life, your death and stay bcuz a mix of pain and relation pulls you in so close you can hardly breathe and hols you there...
its when that special person is the first thing they think of when they wake up and the last thing they think of before they go to sleep. and thats wat i think love is really about..even though it is hard to explain ^.^
Body: Do You Love Someone this Much?"
Body: Girl: Slow down, I'm scared.
Guy: No, this is fun.
Girl: No it's not. Please it's too scary!
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: Fine I love you. Slow down!
Guy: Now give me a BIG hug.
Girl : *hugs him*
Guy: Can you take my helmet off and put it on yourself? It's bugging me.
Girl: Alright, now slow down
Guy: I love you babe

(in the paper the next day):
A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of brake failure. Two people were on it, but only 1 had survived.

The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his brakes broke, but he didn't want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him and felt her hug one last time, then he had her wear his helmet so that she would live even though it meant that he would die.

I love you.”

This is an overused idea in many popular sayings today. It's what starry-eyed lovers whisper as they gaze at an ocean sunset, what 8-year-olds shout to their mothers as they sprint toward the already departing morning bus heading for school, and what teenage lovers tell each other in the heat of the moment. It's supposed to be the deepest level of emotional connection between people, yet society has transformed it into a pop-icon phrase to be screened onto glittery fuchsia tank tops and written inside Hallmark cards with pastel bunnies and butterflies dancing on the cover. The phrase, of course, is “I love you.” Love has become such as complex emotion, to the extent of which we are uncertain what it truly signifies and when it is the “real thing”.

A black and white movie, Titanic, a happily ever after and spontaneous trips to exotic destinations with your significant other, is what love signifies for a large part of the population. Everyone wants to be in love. It’s the way the universe tells us who we belong with forever and ever. Nothing could be more exciting and passionate. Our society considers falling in love to be one of the most, if not the most adventurous endeavor that can be taken on. Falling in love is very much like being faced with crashing waves of emotions and then suddenly discovering that the shore is sometimes rocky.

If a person says that they love you, they mean that they like you for who you are now and they fell in love with you because of the present you. This kind of love is temporary and will only last as long as any fairytale would. However, when we wake from the dream and are forced to set aside our views of romanticism, we are confronted with the reality of our situation: Love is not always what we imagine it to be.

But if a person says they love you, one can assume that they mean that they love you unconditionally for who you are now, who you were you in the past and who you might be in the future. When they say they love you and really mean it, you have to ask yourself if you love them too or if you are only in love with the idea of “being in love”. It is very hard to see the difference through logical thinking. These thoughts are sometimes the reason for a relationship going sour.

In seeing how complex love is, we understand that although it is important to love, it is also easy to lose yourself in emotions and therefore lose sense of reality. The longing for a destiny is nowhere stronger than in our romantic life. We are forced at times to share a life with those who cannot possibly fathom our soul. Can we not be forgiven if we believe ourselves fated to stumble one day upon the man or woman of our dreams? We all have these yearnings and long for our soulmate. Many are willing to give up their life for the one they love, while others simply do not place any value into love. Felix Adler, a German philosopher, said it best: “Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other.” Isn’t that what we all look for in life?

Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare's most famous star-crossed lovers. Romeo, a young youth, was in love with the idea of being in love and Juliet, his lover, felt that she was prepared for love and was also yearning for a romantic lifestyle. In Act Two, Scene One, the two lovers discuss their plans of marriage, although it is forbidden. The two decide that they must be together, in order to be happy, as they have become so dependent on the illusion of love. Juliet says to Romeo, “Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed. // If that thy bent of love be honorable, // Thy purpose marriage, send me word to-morrow, // By one that I’ll procure to come to thee, // where and what time thou wilt perform the rite; // And all fortunes at thy foot I’ll lay, // And follow thee my lord throughout the world.” This is significant because in this quote we see a young girl, not yet experienced in the world, pledging herself to her boyfriend, without fully grasping the reality of the situation that it is just teenage love. Eventually, Romeo and Juliet both take their lives because they realize that they cannot be together. All the odds were against them and they gave up in life, in order to be together in death. This situation of love that we find in literature, although perhaps an exaggerated one, shows the extremes of love and how puzzling it truly can be.

Love is a feeling of unconditional affection. Love has no questions and not intentions. You dont love a person for a reason or for returns. You just love the person for who that person is.
