Romantic love.
Posted 1/25/15
Pretty straightforward question. Have you ever experienced /Do you believe in love?

There is love between a mother and a daughter, a father and a son, a pet and its owner.

Between life-long friends.,

Star-crossed lovers,

Spiritual love found between someone and their deity.

****************************However , this topic is about romantic love.****************************

In romance fiction, novels, manga, there is always a love interest for the main character,

In reality some find it, while others never do/will.

So,Are you a romantic, or a hopeless romantic? Do you dream of or believe in finding that perfect someone for you?

Do you still dream or have you abandoned all notion that it could happen, or too cynical and don't believe it can exist?

Do you think its a fairie tale, impossible, a lie...?

Why do you believe in it , or why do you not? Please explain to thre best of your ability.

Experienced it. It hurts as much as it feels good.

I am not hugely romantic. I've learned that you mustn't be a hopeless romantic, as there are other things in life to go for. I am not terribly cynical, as I believe that love can find almost anyone. Love isn't a fairy tale, it happens all the time. I believe in love, because without it, there is no life.

I'd like to say that I've been in love before.

I'd color myself as a hopeless romantic, I'm one of those people who kinda feels lost without someone to go through stuff with me.

I'm currently infatuated with an IRL upperclassman who will not notice me. How torturous.

No one is perfect but I do believe that maybe I can find someone with just the right flaws. I firmly believe that a complementary set of personalities can click together in such a way to drive each other forward in a positive way. It's passion with just a touch of competitiveness...

If I could find that I likely wouldn't find life dull so often.

(attraction is a given of course...)

I've experienced being romantically attracted to someone in a very strong way. but I don't thing that can be called love. I'm not really sure what love is supposed to mean... Is it liking someone that likes you back? is it supposed to last forever? I feel like most people will lose that spark after a few years but they don't separate because of convenience or fear of being alone.

I'm currently in a relationship with someone who I've been in love with for 7 years. It's hard not to believe in something you've experienced.

I believe love does exist, though not in the ways fairy tales and such would depict it. There are many unrealistic expectations people have regarding love. Sure the feels are part of it, but there's a difference between infatuation, and a real unconditional love that will endure.
I'm not really a romantic person, but I do enjoy expressing my love to my partner. I did feel something of a "love at first sight" or really just a strong connection upon finding him. A strong urging to speak to him and know more about him for reasons I couldn't explain. But did not realize my feelings to be love until months later.

Ha, nope. And I don't think anyone has ever felt that way about me, either.

monogamy is an illusion and man made, we're not programmed to be with one person for the rest of our lives.

Okay, it wasn't really about that, so, do you believe in true love with multiple partners, then?


I believe in loving everyone and wishing them well, but romantic love ? negative, it has kinda been proven that it's a chemical in your brain that makes you love someone, but i wouldn't want to narrow something so complex down to such a simple explanation, so i don't think it's that black and white of an issue to say i believe in it or not, but i will say that the word romance is a weird concept since having sex is a biological need that was made for us to survive and procreate, so would i love someone more than i love someone else because i'm having sex with them ? nope, also i don't know what you mean by " true love " since truth changes depending on what lenses you're viewing the world through.

I don't think I've found my "soul mate" but I have experienced love.. it hurts. I think that there will be a day where I'll find her. Not love at first sight kinda thing but more of a growing bond between me and this girl. It'll start of as friends and gradually grow to way more than I could ever anticipate. Well at least that's what i'd hope would happen.

I'm such a hopeless romantic.. TT---TT

While I've not a single doubt in my mind that it's real I've never felt a romantic attraction to a person. I've felt lust which I imagine a fair few people mistake as being love, but someone I'd happily spend the rest of my life with I've yet to meet. Though I'm not really an outgoing chatty person to begin with so I may never find someone, but as of right now, at 18 years old, I'm not desperate anyway.

I don't need to procreate; I'm don't let myself be defined solely by my biology. Sex and romance are not the same thing. Romance is a meaningful connection you have with someone apart from sexual intercourse. Of course having sex doesn't mean you love them. I feel sorry for you; if you don't believe in true love , that's fine, others do and for those who have experienced it they know what it is, so don't call it psychotic if the deficit lies with you.
