A truly perplexing emotion. A word that should only be used when said emotion is true, using it in different context could confuse and hurt many people.
good use: I love you, you mean the world to me and i want to never leave your side...

bad use: I love you as a friend!

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.
Love is what our parents do for us... and initially the rest is all lust.

Oh, man...
Love is an amazing feeling that almost makes your heart burst with this overwhelming passion for someone. It feels so good when you're with them, and if they leave you, love suddenly becomes so painful, because love doesn't really end. When you love someone, it doesn't matter if they leave you or hurt you; you still think about them, and you can't stop, no matter how hard you try. Also, love has to do with God. He can help you out with the sad, painful part of love. If you find love, don't let it get away. Chase it with all your might.
I think about her all the time and can't help myself...that's part of love.

Love is all of the above and so much more. Love is indescribable, but I'll do my best to describe it. When you are in love, nothing else matters, nothing can hurt you, because they are so special to you and they see something in you that they see in no one else on the planet. When you are in love, and they love you back, you are, most of the time, euphoric, because there is something about them that you just need, and they give it to you, and they feel the same way about you. Love does not end after death. True love goes on for all eternity.
Monique, if you ever read this, I want you to know that I love you totally and completely. You accepted me when no one else would, and even after you stopped liking me, you were still by far the kindest girl I had, and still have, ever known. I'll never forget the poem I wrote to you, on the fateful day that changed my life.

"If a smile were a raindrop, I'd send you a shower,
If a hug were a puddle I'd send you a sea,
If a kiss were a second I'd send you an hour,
If I were God, I'd send you me."

Please give me another chance someday.

I love you.

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.

Love is an emotion usually described as 'indescribable' because you can not find the right word to match your feeling of being completely and utterly captivated by someone.
You think about them every single day without fail.
You can't wait to see them and speak to them.
You can not help looking at them when they are around you: you glance at them and if you happen to catch their eye, you will smile a sincere look of longing to be with them, which they return.
Even if they do not look up at you, it doesn't matter, you smile at them anyway and know that they are the only person you will ever want to share your deepest secrets with, or spend every second with...
When they speak, they look at you even if they are addressing someone else in the room.
The look in their eyes is warm, open, accepting and understanding.
Their body-language tells you that they want to pull you in close and NEVER let you go.
They don't care if you don't want to have sex because you get the most unbelieveable and overwhelming feelings just being with them (in clothes).
They play with your hair and tell you you're beautiful and you mean the world to them.
When you look good, they tell you honestly.
They joke around with you and even if you say stupid things, they don't laugh AT you, they understand that it happens to everybody.
You love them no matter what their IQ is.
You love them regardless of previous relationship problems.
You love them in every way possible.
You think they're amazing.
You talk to them for hours on end and never run out of things to talk about.
When you hear their name or hear them call you by your name or even your nickname, you can't help but smile at them.
You are never jealous when they talk to someone else or go somewhere with someone else because jealousy is a sign of lust, NOT love.
You dream about them: being with them; them saving you in akward situations; marrying them; growing old with them.
You think about them before you go to sleep and when you wake up.
You wonder where they are and what they might be thinking abut.
You can picture the look of happiness on their face.
Their smile is contagious.
You don't care where you go with them as long as you ARE with them.
You miss them when you're not with them.
You ancipate evey kiss and every cuddle and every moment you spend with them.
They don't care if anyone is watching when they kiss you, whether it's their friends, your friends, family, strangers or the dog.
They mean every kiss.
Each kiss is sincere and makes you feel like you could put your head on their shoulder and stay there forever.
You trust them with your life.
You think how wonderful they are and you tell them.
You tell them that you love them more than the number of stars in the sky, more than the grains of sand on the earth, more than life itself.
You will do anything to keep them smiling, laughing and loving every moment of life.

You tell them you love them because they make you feel so overtly happy; that you can't help but feel as though there is no evil in the world, no suffering, no pain, no loneliness, no darkness...

And when they tell you that they love you for all the same reasons, it suddenly makes tomorrow look that little bit brighter, the good in the world that little bit righter, the sun feel that little bit softer...and you get the overall feeling of comfort and hope that everyone will get to experience the wonderful emotions you feel.
And your heart feels complete.
1)They send you messages with signs to tell you they are interested eg. :P or ;P or ;) and they say things jokingly but may be a hint eg. "your a sweetheart....but your a terrible liar" or "look love, your too cheeky for your own good" or "doing anything tonight? i was just curious.." or "so you think HE'S cute?!" or "have a good weekend" or "have a great holiday"

2)Trying not to make the body-language obvious eg. sitting facing you or going to sit in the chair closest to you, trying to act all calm and cool, but everyone notices it, sometimes even before you.

3)When they walk past you, they try and catch your eye, and they smile at you, EVEN if someone else is talking to them or they are walking with loads of other people. It's their way of saying that no matter what, they're thinking of you.

4)They act really gentle and caring towards you eg. offering to help you or holding the door open for you or favouring you when he has to choose who to side with...as small as this is, the small things in a relationship can take you far.

5)While talking to you, they mention personal stuff eg. their parents' divorce, previous relationships that went wrong, their favourite things, where they go on weekends, what their goals and dreams are for the future, telling you that you can always go to them to talk or get a second opinon or advice...this shows that they feel comfotable talking to you.

6)They want to hold your hand, even if it's just 'mucking around'. They playfully nudge you in the arm or cuddle you. or even better: they are one step ahead of you and ASK if your cold, then regardles of your answer, they move closer. Physical contact, like that, is a way of showing affection.
