I think that LOVE is dependant on the actual individual. For example, a rapper's perception of love could lead him to the most attractive women, while another person would want a great personality. I believe that "Love" has not been degraded, but the majority of the individuals has just been shifted towards intercourse. The number of individuals that perceive "Love" as intercourse has definitely increased, possibly because most celebrities (ie. Britney Spears) perceive love as sex. And people who idolize those celebrities succeed that trait.

Most of the times it depends on the person. Though I know a lot of guys that only love a girl for sex.

Can't really say that's love..

I'd reply to the OP but I'm too tired right now.


like i said no such thing as lust, and if you just want to pound someone for their meat, thats just attraction and wanting some sex. thats all. No love, no lust. They're there just so you can cum. Thats nothing.


"thats just attraction and wanting some sex." = they gave that the name "lust".

If lust doesn't exist, what would happen to bloodlust? (an awesome word)

Whats your opinion on love?
Love is something that's really hard to explain. I believe that you have to love someone (not like loving a family member) to truly understand what it is.

What age do you think love can be felt at?
Any age (except for when ur a toddler of course!)


What an appropriate time to which love can be said at?
When you have loved someone so much, that you can risk ur entire life or future for that person.


What moments can the word love be used for?
Lies can come out of people's mouths easily (depends on the person), but the truth will always come out..... it depends on when you can use the word love.... i believe that you will know when to say it when the time is right....


Is the word love truly being degraded or has it a new meaning to many?
Definitely it has been degraded... now when we think of love... the first thing we think of is sex....


Is it truly the medias fault or is the cause elsewhere?
Well... that's a bit hard to say... but i believe that the media has a lot to do with the wrong interpretation of love...


What is your definition of love?
It's something that you won't know until you feel (yes it's feel... for u don't see love now do u) it for urself... ^^

Again... this is my opinion only!!! >.<

Whats your opinion on love?
Now, it seems impossible to find "true" love, heck we dont even know if it still exists as ppl only care about ur looks&body. But I wish it still exists, as looks&body aren't quite what im looking for, they're only temporaries since everyone will age

What age do you think love can be felt at?
I think love can be felt at at any age, as long as its a really strong feeling. But, i think its usually around 15 and up.

What an appropriate time to which love can be said at?
i think when u really love that person for soo long, and u know u dont just like them for their body

What moments can the word love be used for?
i dont really know, but i think the word love has a deeper meaning to it, using like is fine with me, unless i know for sure that i wouldn't love anyone else but that one person, then...it'd be the right time i guess

Is the word love truly being degraded or has it a new meaning to many?
degraded most likely, ppl can say "i love you" so easily when they really dont mean it, what they mean is "i love your looks&body!" and they can say it almost to just anyone, pisses me off

Is it truly the medias fault or is the cause elsewhere?
i think media has something to do with it, as media shows romance stories all the time, and ppl who watches it are just dying for true love so badly, that they think whatever they come across is true

Is love really being degraded or do you think the meaning for love does involve the tern sex and such?
i think ppl are just "rushing" to the end of a real love life, they dont go through the emotional stuffs...dont know how to say this..

What is your definition of love?
love is suppose to be something special i guess...you can be urself when ur with this person, and it seems like u dont like anyone else but him iuno, guess u just really want to be with this person real bad, the only difference is ur not rushing or anxious, u want him to accept that thought, and if he doesn't well, back away slowly

isn't love just super friendship to the next level because there is some sort of attraction, like physical/mental. so going around with every girl means that A) your friends (or it would be a real whore) and there is some attraction, so isn't it kinda like love? lol

True love, eh?

I would define it as a decision to commit yourself and act for the good of a loved one.

Too many of us want those selfish loves... where we are in the relationship for the purpose of getting attention from the other person. I am sorry, but that is how people get hurt. Most of the world today has no idea what they want from a partner (including/especially me). I hear people say that they were in love once or that they know what love is, but the fact of the matter is most of us dont. We go in and out of relationshios believing that we know what we are doing,. Then something terrible happens, our hearts get broken. You know what the worst part is? That we go out of one broken relationshio thinking that we now know what love consists of, yet in reality we just know a piece of it, we spread like locust from one person to the next having our hearts broken and breaking the hearts of others. Because we act on our emotions, we dont think things through, we dont call people back, we cheat on people, we dont trust enough.

To the locust in the world.
I laugh at your ignorance, for you guys are the reason the divorce rate is so high, you guys are what inspires others to cheat, you are what is changing the definition of true love. And you are what is making it unattainable.

Well whatever these are just the ramblings of a crazy young man...

Lol, this thing took quite a while to right, but if anyone wants to question the legitimacy of this, please quote me, and ask/disagree/question me =) or if you think i'm flawed, please, point it out as well =)

Whats your opinion on love?

Love, to me, is a very very strong feeling. it can often be mixed up with hate which is also another strong feeling a person can have. Both feelings can kill people, both feelings can save people, and both feelings are very close yet very, very different from each other. its like the chinese symbol thingy the circle with black and white, and only a mere line in between to differ the two colours.

thats love and hate.

There's also many different kinds of Love, and many different kinds of hate. Theres' family love, sister/brotherly love, friendship love...and the most effective/dangerous/wonderful kind of love, the kind of love you share with your soul mate...Love have no gender. and its true. But love can be hurtful, while two person are in love; its wonderful. but when one of the two break the love, the other is hurt and things will be broken a part; truly sad.....and that is the power of LOVE

What age do you think love can be felt at?

Love can be felt at any age, it completely depends on what kind of love you're talking about. There's the love between mother and child; which is always there from the moment the child is being created. There's the love between friends...the bond of a friend ship, which will be there when ever you make a friend...can be young as four or old as 80...

and theres' the love of soul mates, I believe the youngest age for that kind of love to be there is Nine or so, personally I fell in love the first time; for two years *actually it was a crush to a bestfriend -_-; long story short: it was painful, never told my bestfriend I loved her -_-;* That was my first love, and I didn't even realize it till I was...13...one year after the love I had for that friend ended. it was irony. Love age differs from person to person, but when you realize it, you'll never know =) till late late when you're deep in love, Unless you're one of those person who just "love" because the latter looks cute/hot which ever, and then ends the "crush" soon afterwards. it isn't so for me, Love it self picks who to Love, not me. I never even knew i loved two people until it was too late -_-;

What an appropriate time to which love can be said at?

there's no appropriate time, nor is there a wrong/right time, its when ever you choose to and feel you're ready, there really isn't much of a limit or anything along that line. When you want to tell the person you love he/she, you just...tell...unlike who to love and what not, this is completely your choice to tell or not =3 but for me, i guess its when you realize you like that person so you wouldn't go so "deep" and go even "deeper" in to loving that person till you know you're that person's bestfriend if you told you would kill the friendship...>_< or even just mere friends...

so for me, tell when you know, or just tell when you're ready...don't keep it in side your selves, it'll eat you rotten inside...at least it was the case for me...

What moments can the word love be used for?

ahh, this question is simple, love the word is often replaced for the word "like" when you really only "like" something, e.g: your favor fruit. you may choose to say you "love" that fruit. which is nothing wrong to say it.

Love doesn't always have to apply to romantic love, keep that in mind.

there's also the love between friends, which i doubt much people would go up to their bestfriend and say "I love you" Lol...which the love between friends is mostly unspoken of, but you & your friends know its there. =)

and there's the love between your parents, which is often you're requested to say "Mom I love you" or "dad I love you" what ever the case is...this is also a kind of love keep that in mind....and the love there is used lightly but is used correctly

Is the word love truly being degraded or has it a new meaning to many?

The world have never degraded, it was always this way, but love was taken as a much more serious thing back...and now with the media going "love" there and "love" here...and according to you, implying that love means sex (which it sorda does =P) Though also keep in mind, sex actually may or may not involve Love, but it definitively involve Lust. People may confuse Love for Lust; which I don't blame them. Just keep in mind of the difference, because lust is temporary not forever or long lasting....Love is long lasting and may-be forever....

and of course, if you mean the world over all, not just regrading love about how it changed....Just face the fact buddy, everyone chances, every second the world is changing, every second you're changing. >_< it may not all be good, but it is changing and that is a fact...New things are to come, and old things are to go....Some day, even you and I are going to be on the "to go" list...

Joke: Haha, at a tender age of 15, it seems so the Thread starter have already seem through life and is too slow to coop with the world already with its mere changes?

Is it truly the medias fault or is the cause elsewhere?

This isn't truly the media's fault, its partly their fault; not completely. Everyone have to take on fault for the changes happening. If people were not so naive to believe everything the Media say so to be, the media is bound to be stopped =) Not everything is completely in this world.

Is love really being degraded or do you think the meaning for love does involve the term sex and such?

Love is not really being degraded, its really a matter of "opinion", one may think/believe so, another may not. Its really like a....color coded cube...on one side, its green which is the side you look at, on another side it may be red which may be the side I look at things, i'm telling you the whole cube is red, because its the only side i can see, and yet you're telling me the whole cube is green, because thats' the only side you can see...

but does that make neither you or i wrong? No, it doesn't, it just simply means either of us was willing to look at things in another way =P

is the same for this case...Love may or may not be degraded in to sex, and only means sex for "some"...but it can also remain to be the correct/rightful meaning to many others xD

its a matter of perspective...theres' really no right or wrong answers

What is your definition of love?

My definition of Love...

"A feeling which one can have, create, keep, earn and/or lose easily, one of the strongest feelings in the nature of humans, and one of the most wonderful feeling there are, and ever will be. Stronger than all, weaker than all...and have the power to do anything; its uncontrollable by mere humans"

Whats your opinion on love? My opinon in love is when 2 people wish to know each other, cheerish them, dont wish to hurt them, and want to be together for a long time, someone you want to be alone with.

What age do you think love can be felt at? well any age with commen sense, though i dont think true love can be realized until the average age of 20+

What an appropriate time to which love can be said at? i think when u can say "i love you" is when u really only want to be with that person, the person who u want to give and show everything to, and u only want them

What moments can the word love be used for? when the time feels right like the mood, but ive seen people just say it at boring times in puppy love

Is the word love truly being degraded or has it a new meaning to many? yea....its being degraded to just "lets do it" cuz that making love >.>

Is it truly the medias fault or is the cause elsewhere? well people just want to get in bed these days, the media displays love as just someone u think its sexually attractive

Is love really being degraded or do you think the meaning for love does involve the term sex and such? sex is ok, but theres others way to show u love someone, like touching or kissing

What is your definition of love? love....love is when you find someone you only want to cheerish, and be alone with

*sigh* my dear gabcom. If a guy goes around fucking every hot girl doesnt mean he lusts them. It just means he LOVES sex. You cant have a relationship and tell the person you are with "oh honey..i lust you so fucking much!" its wrong. there is no such thing as lust. Which ever dick made up the word lust is a dooshbag.


but THATS the thing!!! It's not a relationship (you wouldn't call it a "relationship" anyway)

Imagine this. A guy sees a chick and thinks "shit shes hot, I wanna sex her", and on that night he picks her up and does his thing, he's lusting for her, he wants her body. She might be the most boring person ever, someone who he'll never fall in "love" with, but if he keeps in contact with that chick (whether he gets sex or not), it's purely on lust, he's in "love" with her body.

Besides..http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/lust

a pure feeling of care and affection for a person, it duznt hafta be the "i want u as my bf/gf" kinda thing, it can happen between two good friends. love is just an overwhelming (hyperbole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) sense of protection for a person, when all u want is for that person to be happy and simply enjoying their company is enough ^^

love is a feeling so beautiful and strong that there is no end to it, it knocks you off your feet and makes you feel like you can do anything.
However,there is no such thing as love in today's society , it's all about sex; the mean and the feeling that are supposed go with the act are forgotten.
the media's views of love and sex are so twisted that concept of love is lost.

call me arrogant, ignorant, or stubborn. I dont care. Lust does not exist.
like i said before which ever dick came up with that word is a dooshbag that made it up just because he was afraid to say love. Love isnt fucking rocket science. I find it funny how people over analyze it.


You can believe whatever you like sweetie :)
Except the dictionary isn't bullshit, it's definitions of words of which the English language consist of. If you must, call the language bullshit. Which is true to an extent, words are only ways of describing something, but in the end they are just words, nothing can precisely show another person what you are feeling/perceiving.

However, I find it interesting to see WHY humans feel such emotions as love, tis quite peculiar.

Love is an emotion people feel towards each other . ' To love ' is a verb . End of story .

Love is a chemical reaction in the brain that happens when you see someone that is desirable to you. Ahem, now that science has made its comment, now beliefs.

These days, people my age seem to think love is a two-week relationship that is just holding hands and kissing in the school halls. None of them have ever actually gone on a date, they just kiss in the school. I myself have only gone on 4 dates in my lifetime and I'am at best, an awkward, if sensitive, dork. But I think thats better then some "Playa" thats just gonna go date your friends after he dumps you next week.

And I hate the drama! Why do people always have to bring in the drama!? *grumble,grumble*
