Love is when your date or your spouse shares food with you on a couch while watching anime or playing videogames with you. When I can have that, then I know I'm in love.

Now I just need someone to do that with T-T

How would you define romantic love and what are your views on it?

Hmm... Romantic love? You care a lot about the person, trust them, think of them in your future, it becomes "us" instead of "I," you're comfortable with them, want to start a family with them, and know they're not perfect, but they're perfect for you. It's kind of hard to explain... but I currently am living with my boyfriend so I hope I can help convey what I feel correctly.


How would you describe the feelings of falling in love with someone?

It's something that just happens. One day you think about it and you want to be with them. Infatuation/puppy love is something that happens quickly, while mature love is something that happens gradually between two friends. Loving someone even though you know everything about them (EVERYTHING) is something that's hard to do, but when you love them, it doesn't matter.


What are the things that you think about when it comes to the person that you're in love with?

"Ah, when is he going to get a job? D:<" jk jk jk (I do think about that though)

It's mainly:
    "I can't wait until we start our lives together and get our own apartment!"
    "He's so cute and silly~ I love him."
    "He's such a sweetheart."
    "I can't wait to start a family with him."
    "I wonder what our kids will be like?"
    "What will our marriage be like?"
    "When will he propose?"
    "Will be propose?"
    "He's so stupid! Ahhh~"



What should you do when you find yourself falling in love with someone whom you know you shouldn't? Employer, family members spouse, a "bad" person, or your therapist for example.

The first thing you should do is accept it. It's not going to go away unless you realize it will not happen and move on. Accepting it and not denying it will definitely help. You can easily love an employer or your therapist. I've known work relationships that have been great. Those are not "bad" people to fall in love with. If it's someone you know will physically or verbally abuse you, accept that you love them but realize it's not healthy for you and cut ties.

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.

Love is a paradoxical emotion by nature. It means different things to different people. However if I personally was to define what love is to me?

I'd have to say: Acceptance.

To know that someone accepts you as you are, and that you in turn, accept them as they are. To bear everything you are to another person, and to have that person bother understand and embrace you is a powerful feeling indeed.

Anyway...

How would you define romantic love and what are your views on it?
I would define romantic love as an affection for another that is deeper than platonic. It doesn't have to be healthy, it could be glamorized, but the objective is seeing another entity in pursuit of romance.
My views on it: Accept what you are romantically inclined towards, be smart enough to know when to act and when not to by considering consequences. "I don't want to tell so-and-so about my feelings, because it might ruin our friendship..." <- not a good enough reason. "I'm 25 and they're 12." <- Ok, pedophilia. Don't act on it.

How would you describe the feelings of falling in love with someone?
In a word: tumultuous. In a few words: a raging battle inside, Frozen-status.

What are the things that you think about when it comes to the person that you're in love with?
He's a good dad... WTF IS HE THINKING?! OOOOoooohhh, he better not have lied to me... OH! YES! CHOCOLATE! YUM! hey, hey, hey... come home from work already. I shouldn't be beating you home... SNUGGLES!.... le sexy time? YES?

What should you do when you find yourself falling in love with someone whom you know you shouldn't? Employer, family members spouse, a "bad" person, or your therapist for example.
Refer back to question 1...

"Extra tid-bit": when i decided it was right for marriage versus another relationship...
I have had strong feelings like this for one other person before, that I swore I was going to marry (and didn't). It came down to principles. My spouse and I have an agreement: complete honesty. That's all I ask. Our love for each other is not based on acceptance of everything (that's practically impossible). It's based on our honesty with each other and if we can live with the truth. Do I accept his "methane cuddles"? HELL NO, but I can live with them (yay, gas masks!).

I have experienced romantic love in many levels. What I can say is that you'll never be able to love someone as you loved another person. I could point some examples.

My first love lasted 4 years and I can say that I would be happy a whole day just for him showing me his smile or his support. I could feel my heart pound every time he passed by. But, I couldn't feel jealousy at all. We kissed once, but he was too shy to talk with me and stuff like that. Eventually, I thought he didn't like me and I moved on. I can say that this was the purest love I have ever experienced.

Then, I began hanging out with my bf - has been 3 years since. That's when that whole amount of feelings started bursting and I couldn't stand that. I wanted him close, I could only think about him and I hated him for not being around, I was jealous. Selfish love. I couldn't trust him because my self esteem didn't exist. He always said he loved me, that I was the most perfect girl he ever met but I couldn't accept that cause I couldn't understand. Time passed by and I could feel him getting distant and I did nothing about that because I was too depressed to bother. S E L F I S H N E S S strikes again. He said he didn't know what he felt for me anymore, I was shocked, he asked for some time, I said I couldn't keep seeing him like that , he started crying some serious stuff happened and we didn't spoke for some time.

Some time later, I met a boy who has always noticed me but I didn't remember him at all. I thought he was way out of my league but we started going out, not steady but sorta. Still I couldn't forget my ex. When I was with this guy, one night I kissed other 2 when I drank too much. This was important for me to notice that my feelings for him wasn't as strong as my first love or first boyfriend. I started liking him but we didn't have chemistry and that helps a lot. Later he told me he kissed another girl but he liked me and then I realized this wasn't going anywhere. Because it wasn't a serious relationship or anything like that so I just didn't go out with him when he invited or something like that. What I can say is that I liked him. That is like. A crush. He is one of my best friends now.

One day after I said that I wouldn't hang out with my friend anymore, my ex asked me out. I wasn't sure what I felt for him anymore and he hurt me too much. It took a while for him to win me over but he was so passionate, thoughtful and didn't give up. He was too shocked that I had a brief thing with someone else - he had too but he despise the girl and I don't like his attitude toward her, no girl deserves that - That I eventually had some feelings for someone new, he thought that he had lost me and stuff like that. I think the worst thing that can ever happen to someone is to know how you love something when it's already gone. That happened to him. But with all my new experiences, my new relationship is much more mature and happy right now. We can't just waste time. That's what I learned about love. Our hearts are free and things don't last forever. Enjoy it with all of your feelings.
