    Just curious if anyone could describe it...in words...to any degree. Perhaps it is a difficult thing to put into words...describing how it makes one feel. Anyone want to give it a shot?

    While I cannot really answer your question here is something I recently said about a girl I am very interested in.
    "Katie and I just fit so well together. It's like we're each half a zipper on a pair of pants."
    Love, to me, is where you feel so in tune with the other person and care about their general well being above all else. It doesn't really have anything to do with attraction either. I think too many people still confuse love with lust. But it is really a difficult thing to put into words since it means different things to different people. IMO of course. [​IMG]

    Knowing that my wife is the one person I want to spend the rest of my life with...the feeling that she completes me...that she is more important to me than life itself, and that I would gladly sacrifice myself to save her if that was the last resort...all that and more. Hope that makes sense.

    John.

    One of Robert Heinlein running themes on love was that you know you're in love with someone else when you put their happiness before your happiness in all respects totally.

    Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!

    Love is like oxygen
    You get too much, you get too high
    Not enough and you're gonna die
    Love gets you high

    - Sweet

    How old are you?
    Alright. First, there's a pit in your stomach. That's a bit lust, and no matter what, will go away after time.
    In the long run, it's never been uttered better than this:
    "I'll die for you, but I won't live for you." *
    That's love, to me.
    If you'll live for someone, I don't even think it can be love. It's worhship, almost. They'll walk all over you, use you, and abuse you.

    Love can be the worst feeling in the world, especially when the person you "love" says they no longer feel the same.

    "Love" has different meanings to everyone though

    There's a good quote Pat. Sums up what I said very nicely.

    I thought that was one definition of insanity.

    Love is willingly watching the terminally boring 'Big Brother Live' for hours because she wants to watch it and wants me to watch it with her, what makes it bearable is that we're cuddling albeit with a glazed look on my face because absolutely nothing happens in this programme![​IMG]
    Also not watching a dvd you've been waiting all year to see because she-who-must-be-obeyed wants to watch some tv, well in my case thats true love.[​IMG]
