Mysterious word in the world

    For me love is the most mysterious word in the world.I want to know what's your definition of love!
    When I was younger,I thought "I love you!" is the most beautiful sentence in the world and I thought it means "I'm going to step out of my selfishness and prefer another person's happiness to myself."and it means "I'll never hurt you purposely!"
    Then I grow up and now I think this sentence is still beautiful but it also could be kind of warning.You know it means:
    1.I love you till I don't get tired of you or meet a better person! :surprised
    2.I love you because you can bring happiness into my life and if I can't make you happy,it's not important at all! :bugeye:
    3.I love you but if you reject my love, I'll do everything to hurt you!(warning!) :devil:
    Sometimes people love you so they try to keep you beside themselves forever.They do their best not to let you improve because you may leave them or not like them as much as before.And right now I think the only true love is mother's love!


    You may think I'm too pessimistic but you know we have to be careful all the time. :approve:

    Agreed.

    Giving most credits of this comment to franz, 'sexual lust; would be more appropriate word.

    Exactly that, if the feeling is not mutaul then it is they that do not love you.
    To be IN LOVE the feeling needs to be mutual (otherwise it is unrequited and/or can become an obsession)

    I beg to differ

    For me, love seems to be rather elusive, but I hope to someday find it.

    I am basing everything off of theoretical knowledge of the concept, so if I go astray somewhere please correct me.

    Since love is a human interaction between two people, there are not clear-and-set rules that govern the nature of it. Two can love paternally, platonically, physically (though that is more like lust that Bladibla mentioned), or many other numerous ways. The thing that love has in common to me is mutual understanding of the other's individual self.

    The two people in the relationship gain strength from each other, loving each other for who they are, and not for any other external reasons such as money or status (for then it would not really be love at all). In this way, each person in the relationship feels respected and wanted, and can count on their partner whenever needed. Two becomes a manifestation of one, which is represented in the wedding vases of Native American pottery.

    Naturally, one person's wishes has to be respected in order for anything to work out. This can lead to quandarys and odd situations. For instance, a woman's last act of love may be to sign the divorce papers with the man, if the man's wishes are to divorce her. It is this respect that seems to decide the strength (or lack thereof) of the love.

    Unrequited love sucks, avoid it if you can. One-way love doesn't work either, unless you are of course married to yourself. Avoid situations where the other person doesn't respect you for who you are, these will seem to lead to hardship and pain in the end.

    I have to admit that there is much, much more to it than this, and I'm sure that others on this forum who have more experience can explain it much better than I ever could. I just don't hope that I am lead horribly astray...

    Love to, but I'm off to the Leadmill, where everyone gets a bargain. 60p for a bottle. My liver is evil, and deserves to be punished.

    I still think, when said honestly and thoughtfully, it is the most beautiful sentence.
    Those are three examples of the misappropriation of the phrase - "I love you."
    That would not be love.
    or a father's love for his children.
    Not really, it sounds like someone who has recently had one or more negative experiences.

    Love is unconditional and unselfish.

    If love doesn't exist, then I'm condemned to an incomplete existence, and that is something I could not bear.

    Love is what you want it to be. It's a personal experience.

    There are many forms of love. You are the only one that can decide what "love" is to you and which form is the most meaningful.

    When a woman signs the divorce papers, and in relationships they usually initiate the divorce 90% of the time. It's not because she loves him.
    It's always the opposite.

    I've been through diamonds
    I've been through minks
    I've been through it all
    Love stinks! Yeah, yeah!

    first of all, welcome back!
    It's really great when you fall in love with someone and you're sure you can never have him/her.because it's terrible if you can have him! :bugeye: because after you start a relationship with him,you'll get to know the person better and sometimes even you may hate him!and in most cases you'll get tired of him at least.And you know in some cases you even may lose all your freedom because of him!That's why I love impossible love but unfortunatelu I haven't exprienced yet except for celebrities! :wink:
    But I'm telling you,it's quite a big disaster when someone falls in love with you whom you don't like at all esp. if the person would be so nice and respectful!I myself think I'm a criminal because of not loving him.You know you always think maybe he's the right person and you're making a terrible mistake by rejecting his love!

    What if it's the opposite. If instead, you're the one in love and the person doesn't seem to notice you. Would you like it any better? how would you get the person's attention?
