Ten years ago you were six and didn't notice or care about the overuse of "love". Let this one go, and maybe stop listening to pop radio for a while.


TankGirl knows, her boyfriend is a mutated kangaroo.

Who better to teach us what love is than the boys at the Roxbury http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zlViU5PBPY

I think people are more infatuated and lustful than actually being in love nowadays. And yes, it's like how you said, they substitute the terms "infatuation" and "lust" for the term "love". That crap is all over other forms of media (such as TV, movies, and books).



What is Blasian? I was just in a game with a person named Blasian_Boy(some random number) he was raging at our team.


Blasian = Black & Asian

Wondering if the girl/guy who made this topic was dumped recently?
Cause limiting your view on things from 1 event that happened is bad...
I guess I'll spill it out. No. Love hasn't lost its meaning. It has actually gotten far better than it has been in the past.
In the 70's and 80's, love was thrown around everywhere, and love was the same as caring. Hippies threw it around, and had multiple sexual intercourses with different people. Orgies were a big thing back than. Is it the same love that you think that the world has lost? Not really.
In the 40's women were unequal to men. They were just housewives without too many rights.. What the wives cared about was that the men could feed the family and have a nice place to stay at. So no again, unless some real cases were there.. True love still wasn't quite a thing.
Back in the middle ages and stuff.. Love just had the meaning of ''I feel attracted to you sexually''. And marriage was centered around status of the families and stuff.

In our current age. Women have a good amount of choice of who to marry, and it all depends on how well they themselves can understand a man. And this goes either way. There are both women and men who're unfaithful.

P.S: I just checked out that the one who made this topic is a 16 year old girls..... Girl.. You still have your whole life ahead of you, don't judge things from the small hole that you've opened .. Try to look at things from a wider lens. Don't rush out to make silly topics cause everything I've just said can easily be researched.

People who are in true love don't need a word to realize they love each other, one would be foolish to allow such feelings to be determined by the sound of one word......now listening to me...acting like I know a thing or two about this thing we're calling love.

I am not sure "love" was any different in the past than it is now. They might not have tossed around the world love, but other words with essentially the same meaning have always been tossed around. The concept of love has been "overused" for lack of a better word since the beginning of recorded history. Personally, i think you might simply have a romanticized idea of what love is than i do, and consider it to be sacrosanct.
Love and romance has always been a strong driving force for art. Think about literary classics, most of the them are about love. Opera for example is heavily influenced by romance, love stories and so on. The same holds true for theater for example. The reason these words of art become classics, and stay relevant is because they speak to people. Regardless how much the world changes, how much technology changes through time. Romance and love will always be something everyone will be able to relate to and experience, which is why it is so widely used. Music in itself has evolved greatly over the last century or so. Before then any kind of lyrics found in music was heavily influenced by religion. It wasn't until the late 19th century to early 20th when music started opening up to new rhythms, styles and so on. Therefore music before that time simply did not mention love.

Love is a figment of your imagination... You will never be truly loved by someone. People are selfish. They tend to care more about themselves than others. At least that's how my experiences in love have been.


Most love is yes. But its not entirely impossible to find love. But 90% of people really never do as adults. Most people get it when they're children, from their parents/siblings. But later when you become more distant to your family; even your mothers love can fade. So.. just imagine how hard it is to find it with a complete stranger. This is just an opinion. But true love is actually feeling like you cannot live without someone. If you're perfectly cool with carrying on a long distance relationship.. or letting your partner go on some trip for a week with her friends.. You're not in love. And of course love is selfish... you don't love someone just to love them. You love them because it makes you happy as well.

10 or so years ago? What when you were 6?

Fortunately for me I don't listen to pop music, and I'd rather listen to a song with more intelligible song writing and meaning than "Hey I just met you and this is crazy here's my number, I'm a slut, so fuck me later".

So if you're looking for true love in the music you listen to, I really think you're looking in the wrong places, as for the rest of the world, nothing has changed, only your morbid views.

Age is irrelevant here. It was her who mentioned the value of love changing in 10 years, though at 6 years old how would she truly know the value of love, or if she's referring to the year 2003 in general as a point in history and not one in her own history then, I also don't see the point here.

I agree with this quote. I don't think love has lost it's meaning, simply because it's a different experience for everyone and most have a different interpretation of what love really is. So trying to compare love now versus another time period to me is pointless, especially when you can hardly remember that time. Others could care less or think it's just a word while someone else think it's an important part of their relationship with someone.

On a side note, love and infatuation often get mixed up together. Which also causes problems on the whole love topic. As for love being mentioned in the media, well it's just a hot topic because most people love the idea of romance; 'finding that one person you can be with forever' type of thing.

Some of you are misinterpreting the point, when it's staring you in the face. Good luck out there in society.
