When you've been hurt beyond any fathomable measure...when you not only gag at the mention of relationships and Valentine's Day but feel like smacking the idiot who "thinks" they have it...and realizing that love doesn't exist at all.

Then in the blink of an eye...in the place you never looked...never expected...and could never really understand even if you wanted to...you didn't find true love...it found you. He/she found you.

And they not only healed your broken soul but created an irreplaceable shield for your heart.

True love is being corny but really meaning it.

True love is knowing your friends will be mad you didn't hang out with them, but knowing it'll all be ok as long as you can be with that person.

True love is realizing they're not perfect--but not settling...appreciating.

True love is giving everything you have, everything you are, and not caring whether or not you get something out of it...but knowing in your heart you will because they feel the same.

True love is finding yourself thinking about the most insignificant thing they said to you today and smiling like there's no tomorrow.

Basically...true love is the action...not just the phrase.
A little blurb about true love I came up with off the top of my head:

When you say "I love you", you can lie.

When you say "I need you", it can be for a short time.

When you say "I want you", you can want someone else too.

But if you spend every day, every night, every moment devoted to me, I'll know your love is true.

True love is:
farting in bed then laughing with each other if it smells bad,
putting notes in random books at a bookstore,
blowing up anthills and eating beef jerky,
dancing with him while standing on his feet,
taking her home when she throws up at school,
then kissing her on the cheek and taking a nap with her,
sitting on the floor at Hastings with Starbucks and looking at random books,
buying pet rats just because you wanted to,
buying her a big cup of ice from Sonic,
not making him pay for everything,
taking long drives and talking about random stuff,
staring into each others eyes and smiling,
taking 30 minutes to type a sweet long text message just to show that you care,
carrying her inside when she falls asleep in your car,
making fart noises on each others bellies,
staring at them when the door is open in the classroom across the hall,
talking in cute silly voices to each other with wide eyes,
seeing her at her worst and still calling her beautiful,
telling her to call you if she can't sleep no matter what time it is,
not calling him because you want to let him sleep,
still feeling the same spark you did at first every time you kiss,
singing loudly together,
roasting marshmallows for them just how they like them,
walking barefoot outside in freezing cold weather because he wants to,
playing Call of Duty with him even though you suck,
and most of all, true love is being able to understand how the other feels without them even saying a word.
What Corvin and Amber are experiencing is not just any old love, it's true love. :)

True love is when you can't sleep at night because reality is finally better than your dreams.
Paula N. I love you with all my heart. I want to be with you for the rest of my life. You are always and forever my princess. This is true love.

True Love is Love in its correct sense. The real Love. It cannot be defined, but personified: Love is mutual because it convenes two parts of the same soul; When you truly feel it, you know you had never been bonded so powerfully with anyone before; You worry for your Love over things you would not have otherwise; You give and accept nothing; You rejoice every good thing that happened to him/her so emotionally as if it happened to you; You worry his/her pain as emotionally as if it happened to you; You never envy, you never resent; You submit to him/her more than just your heart; your mind, conscious, conscience, which is why you know, if he/she moves away, no one can bring you back that feeling, no one can take that place in your heart, and that you may smile a million times, but never that way...

True love is when u would sacrifice everything for your sweety. Its when nothing else matters to you but making hem happy. It's when u don't see yourself with anyone else but them. this love is so deep, so real. True love is when you miss them before you even leave, it's when you could listen to them talk all night and never get tired their your voice...It's when the thought of their name gives you butterflies, and when you see their smile when you close your eyes...That feeling is IRREPLACEABLE.<3
the love between zoozoo and anou is an example of true love.

Love without need for sex, beauty, anything physical, or money. Often mistaken with a crush. No need for return of affection.
He thought it was true love when he saw her but a week later he didn't even remember her.

After their first conversation she knew it was true love.

Her true love for him tore her to peices.

The remarkable event of one's heart breaking at the exact instant that someone offers you a vial of their blood.
Rochester, NY: February 1994. Though chunks of ice were falling from the sky, he bicycled to Tops supermarket to get me, then a menstruating woman in her mid-twenties, the Sunday New York Times and a bloody steak. Now that's true love. Except, of course, it wasn't. Sometimes I think that love isn't something located in a particular person, like a husband, but, rather, something that's passed from person to person, like an albino rabbit at the petting zoo in Oklahoma City. But where is Oklahoma? This is the problem with not knowing how to position yourself appropriately in a restricted space. Though I'm now an American, I was born in a country where even the children drank tea for breakfast, like pirates in need of root canal surgery. Where were you born? Do you love someone? Describe your favorite lover of all time. My lovers have had the following occupations: bike mechanic, waiter, wedding video maker, performer in a miracle play, rabbi, merchant banker, poet (though I don't think they earned any money), professor, and...I think that's it. No. Art critic. Electrical engineer. Peace corps volunteer. The son of the Chief of Police of Rajasthan. (I believe he received a stipend.)
