This question is a lot like asking "is it okay to date someone you work with?"

The people who say yes are fucking their coworkers.

Nope. Love is a load of garbage that the desperate and lonely cling onto so they don't feel alone.


So what about what couples say?


They don't matter to me. They're even more desperate that they just agree to spend lots of time together to fool themselves into thinking love/relationships are real.

Are you talking specifically about romantic love? If so, it does, but it's not guaranteed you'll ever feel it. I haven't, but I've seen people who did and how good a relationship built on mutual love, respect, understanding, and communication can be.

Love itself can be found all around in its many forms. I think everyone is bound to feel at least one kind of love in their life.

Love is the only thing that is real. Love is everything. All came from love. Love is eternal.

Some simple rules:

1. If you've just worked a double-shift and you're out on your feet but have to call your GF/BF just to hear her voice before you go to sleep, it's most likely love.
2. If you are on a date with your GF/BF and aren't checking out the competition on the sly, it 's most likely love.
3. If you have a full schedule that's overwhelming you, and you feel calm/serene after calling your GF/BF, it's most likely love.
4. If you swore to yourself you'd never marry, have kids, settle down and you've come to see that lifestyle as what you truly want but only with your GF/BF, it's most likely love.

If all four above are true to you it's definitely love.

" Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.


I love this post

I'm not sure what loving someone or something feels like. I mean, I know how it feels to care about others, but to love?

This is what I think love is.


Love is a dangerous thing! The thing about love is not both parties are feeling the same level of love. One love may fades away in time, while other increases.. and when she/he start avoiding you, you start feeling hurt but you'll be in denial and create false reason. If He/She return to you, your love increases but his/her will feel compelle.. and she/he will start betraying your feeling, this will create more pains.

In time, you will feel uncomfortable to be around him/her.. Once He/She realize this..They'll wake up and want go back to you.. But you cannot because he/she have betray your feeling.

What you're saying up there is.. That what Love created.. Jealously, Pain, Despair, Chaos, Unwanted, Cheating and many other undesire emotions.

It definitely is. Though it may be hard to detect in other people and is always subject to change, the neurobiology of it proves that it is real.

Infatuation is definitely real. That song "When a man loves a woman" sums it up perfectly. Unfortunately, your judgement nears zero when you are infatuated. Even worse, when the dopamine and other brain chemicals return to normal, and you start to wonder "What were you thinking?", the relationship can get ugly in a big hurry. If both of you are infatuated, this is terrible. Neither of you have effective judgment and you might make some life changing decisions with someone you won't be able to stand in a few months.

Speaking just about men because that is all I know for certain, romantic love exists but men are terrible at recognizing they are in love. I am 64, and during that time i have had 4 friends lose their girlfriend and be devastated. They didn't show up to work for months, and when they finally started working again, they were a shadow of their former selves. It took over a year for them to become functional human beings , but they never fully recovered. They took their relationship for granted and it wasn't until they were in danger of losing their girlfriend did they realize if was love, but it was too late. So, to avoid their fate, I would suggest that men periodically ask themselves "Can I imagine my life without this girl". If the answer is no, you should take immediate steps to close the deal.

I am not sure there is any way to tell if your partner loves you, but you can easily tell if they like you. Just look at size of their pupils. If they are like pin points, it is either very bright in the room or they hate you with every fiber of their being. If they are as big as saucers, it is either very dark in the room, or they very, very much like what they are looking at. So, you need to do this in a variety of lighting conditions. Also, it only reflects what they are feeling at the moment. But if it is almost always pinpoints, you should question why they are hanging with you. If it is almost always saucers, your partner is quite fond of you. This cannot be faked so it is a very reliable barometer of where you stand.

I think you are just making shit up. There's no guarantee or guidebook that states if you have all 4 conditions its guaranteed love. To be honest it sounds like your talking about puppy love.

Not made up...experienced. Remember, I said YOU'RE in love ... not that they are unfortunately. Love can be totally one-sided in which you find yourself up a creek without a paddle. If you care more about your S.O. than yourself, it's the first sign of being in love. If you would rather die than hurt her/him, feel a non-stalkerish fascination of hurt when you're not with them or don't see them or just think "hey, she/he would just love this I think I'll get this for them" they're all signs of you being in love. Most importantly, if you screw up and lose them or they don't return your love, and years later it still hurts like hell thinking of them, it's pretty obvious you're still in love with them.

I guess it really depends on what you think love is. Love can mean a multitude of things. When regarding personal love, as in loving someone, those things can be a bit harder to determine. It takes time to get to know someone. Like a LONG time. You also don't know what someone is truly like until you have lived with them for an extensive period in my opinion. This will also boil down to the type of person you are interested in of course as well.
