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...

when you can't get over someone even after you broke up with them. you wake up in the middle of the night thinking about them and smile because of how happy you were just to be with them. you cry because of all the good memories you had with them and want them to come back. when you want the other person to change their mind about you and you'd do anything to be with them again. being in that person's arm was the safest place in the world.
i still love him and he doesn't care.

Love is too good for words.

"A soul's recognition of its counter part."
A look into someone's eyes that could last for hours. Finding love thorugh the windows of the soul. An ever-lasting mark that has always been with you and will remain with you for eternity.

Love is not something that can be easily explained. and you don't truly know what it is until it happens to you. Love is not wanting to have sex with someone. Thats lust.

Love is when you can't imagine life without him. It's getting butterflies in your stomach at the mention of his name or the sound of his voice. Its when you'll do anything just to catch a glance of his car or his house because you know he's there. Or even that he's not there. But because it is proof that he exists when you can't imagine yourself being this lucky.

Love is when you wake up every morning and have to look at your phone and look at your saved messages to make sure that he isn't just a dream. Because you feel like even you don't deserve someone this amazing.

Love covers flaws and makes you love someone for who they really are and accept their mistakes.

Love hurts.

Love is when you say "i love you" and its not enough. Because it feels like more then that.

Love changes you.

Love lets you trust someone with everything. Yourself, your possesions, your life.

Love is when you don't have sex but he still continues to risk everything to talk to you even after you've broken up because your parents won't let you go out because of the age difference. Even if its six months later.

Love waits.
I wish i could tell you how much you mean to me. The best i can do is tell you i love you.

An undefatable feeling in which you cannot stop thinking about another person. Love usually throws a person's life away. They get so up into this heaven they have created, that when they come down, it hurts so bad they often swear never to love again. It will tear a person up, completely destroy one's heart, or make life a complete and unreal illusion. Remember, it's powerful, and it hurts. Don't think you love somebody unless it's actually, completely, purely true.
"I swear, I'm in love!"

"Your funeral."
