Love, my friend, is a wonderfully, wonderfully, shitty thing.

There have been, and indeed, are, numerous attempts to define love, but the truth is, there really is no set definition.

* Love can mean completely different things to different people.

* For some, it is the heady rush, the constant butterflies and silly smiles that grace one's face.
*For others, love is the ever-present peace, the constant comfort and the assuring knowledge that the one you love is there.
*For others still, it is the aching longing, wanting and mad fits of possessiveness, and even obssession that define love.


One thing that we can be certain of, is that its a powerful thing. I hesitate to say emotion, as it seems much too callous and cold to describe love.

*After all, love has sparked wars, and ended feuds, love has hurt, and love has healed, love has driven mankind to dizzying extremes, only to abruptly bring one back round.

*Love is a fickle thing.

*Love has healed. Love has comforted. Love has made people insanely, foolishly, abnormally euphoric. Love has the ability to send one on an indescribable high, and make everything and anything so much better. The world around you is much more colourful, the people, much more nicer, the conversations more insightful.

*Love has also in shocking contrast, brought out the darker side in us all.
People have murdered for love, stolen, hurt, abused. Countless have died on the fanciful longing of a foolish leader in love. Love makes us foolish, blind and ignorant. It makes us defy our own morals and ideals, just for the slightest sign of affection or approval.

*Love can take many forms.
There is the love between friends, the love for a god, the love of family, the love of an object, or the like, and of course, the love shared between two people in a relationship.

*There is also unrequited love, which is the single most painful thing in the world.
There is also lost love, by which I mean two true lovers who are somehow separated unjustly. Time may have passed, whole continents may separate them, perhaps even death itself, but this love never forgets and thus, still mournfully aches.

*Love is foolhardy and irrational.
It makes no logical sense, to like a person so much so, that you become completely ignorant of their faults and would do absolutely anything if the other would approve.

*Love is a dangerous, dangerous thing. And too many have been hurt by it.

*And so, one wonders, why do we still crave it?

(The little *'s are like, the main points. This isnt much of an exact 'Love is this' type thing but obv. its hard to define it, so Im just writing down my ponderings. :])
An example of love?
Different examples for different people.
Theist = God,
Me = My parents
etc. etc...

Natures way of letting you know that even when you're happy you can still feel extreme pain
"I love her/him so much it hurts"

Honestly the most painful thing I have ever experienced so far in my life. A source of endless inspiration/pain/euphoria, and a complete reliance on one person to control everything you think or feel.

Unrequited love: When you love someone irrationally as they don't feel the same about you, yet they are all you think about at any time of night or day, whatever you are doing or whoever you are with and it's so painful it makes you want to scream. They are the only person you would wish to describe it to, and the only one you can't.
Do you know how much I love you?

Love, a word used to describe an undescribable feeling you have for another person. When you love someone you feel connected to them and look at them and see them in a way other people do not. You see past their looks and materialistic side and see them. When you love someone you think about them all the time without obsessing; simple every day things remind you of the times you've had with them. When you love someone, when you are not with them you wish you were and can't wait to be again. You miss them when they're gone and cant wait to see them when they return. When you love someone, even if you are not with them if they are happy wherever life has taken them, you're happy for them and wish them the best. When you love someone, being in their arms and having them in yours is the safest place to be. When you love someone, when they touch you, you feel it everywhere and when they kiss you its like falling and flying at the same time. When you love someone you'd give everything to them, but they would never make you. love is undescribable and undefineable, if you're in love... you know it.
"I love you because you're everything i can't explain but can never get enough of."

"i love you because you're crazy and in all my thoughts driving me insane!!"

"Loving you is the best decision i didn't have any choice in making."

I love you

Love.
Love is the feeling that you only feel once in a life time. When you are in true love, you will consider that love and all other affairs will seem so pointless compared to true love, see how a person can only really fall in love one time. It's hard to explain but if you think about it, you'll understand.
Love, true love, is when you are willing to let that person you love go with the love of his life, in order to just see him happy.
True Love is not blind... if you love the person you'll see there flaws, but still consider them beautiful.
You'll notice the little pimples they have all over their face, you notice how short they are, you notice that there's a bunch more beautiful people than that person.
Yet, you still love them.
Love is the only emotion that will never be 100% described. Love changes.... your life forever.
You might say "Oh, I've only loved two people in my life". Stop lying, you know that deep down you only loved one, and that true love, regardless whether you are married or not, will always be your love deep down.
Love, is not to be confused with a strong crush. No, when you love someone, you'll do anything for them, even see them walk away with the one they love... sometimes that may not be you.
You are not in "love" when you hug and kiss you boyfriend. You are in love when you firstly see him kiss and hug his girlfriend and leave it like that.
Love is fierce, and has hardships.
Love is not when you kiss the person in the rain, love is when you listen to the problems that person has even though it's raining.
Love is when even a little piece of grass has a meaning to you. Nature seems beautiful, you look up at the sky and think about that person, you think of that person before you fall asleep, while your in the shower, while you sing, while your in class, while your walking, while your writting definitions, while your writting, while your on your cellphone... sometimes you might even doze of thinking of that person.
Love, is when you write a deep defition on Urban Dictionary and cry/laugh while you deeply think of what love really is.
Love is when you read this defition and not laugh or smirk. Love is when you realize the defition wasn't meant to be perverted, and you read the defition with a clean mind. Love is when you read the entire defition and realize that love has happened to you and realize that even with its flaws love is a beautiful thing.

Good luck.
The love I felt for him never meant anything to him.
I thought that maybe it did, but deep down I knew I was lying to myself... he never cared for me. While each day I fell more in love with him, he couldn't have cared less.

If you read the defition and thought it was perverted.. you are a dirty perverted bastard.

love is..
talking on the phone forever and not wanting to hang up
..its the feeling you get when someone metions their name
its wanting to be held and never letting go of
its not being able to go to sleep without knowing if everythings alright
its being able to say something stupid and not worry about it..and to be yourself
its the feeling you get when you daydream and their all thats on your mind
its wanting that kiss to never end because its never felt so good
its the smile that you cant help getting on your face when you look at them
its the feeling you get when you spend time with them and you don't want it to end..
its being able to be in a group of people and know that theres only one person that you have true feelings for
its when your out and you still cant get them of you mind..
love is something special and it is because of you
What I wanted to tell you the other night is that, I love you Idris
