    Real love is what your pets show you , they love you unconditionally .... they dont care what you look like... what you say, if you are crabby and need time alone they dont hold a grudge ... they dont care if you have put on weight .... or have no make up on, etc etc.... lol THATS REAL LOVE ....

    Real love is when you give more to your better half, than you would to yourself. You don't see the differences, errors of present or past, true feeling from the heart (not worrying about the appearance - size, color - of the person). Someone who you would like to spend the rest of your life with.

    Well; I've been married and loved the man but realized he was not good for me or my son. So I tried to work with it and make it better but it didn't get that way becuase he didn't really want to make our relationship good for either of us and told me so, after awhile, said it was too hard. I disagree with faithhopechairity.
    You can start a process where you love someone less as time goes by, so after awhile you don't love them anymore. JUst like the process of starting to love someone. somtimes one ting happens to make you realize ,I can love this person deeply and you start the process soemtimes insatntly. so a good description of that is falling in love and a descrition of no longer loving that person can be falling out of love. it does happen. and it is sad and hard to live through having been there myself several times.
    there is unsecure love and deep abiding love, we get into this in different degrees with people in our lives.
    I'm looking for that secure, abiding,deep love that is trueto me and the one I'm involved with.

    I tend to agree with moonshadow girl AND cue ball. I think that cue ball is speaking of the feeling of being in love, and moonshadow girl is speaking about how one shows that they love someone.

    real love is understanding your spouse

    Real Love is accepting your partner with no conditions,as is take it or leave it.Sharing caring trusting without thinking about it,eating breating your mate and enjoying every minute of it,wow i think i real love is cool!!

    I have to agree with that, real love is unconditional, the person loves you for what you are not what they expect you to be for them. This is why all I ask is for people to be themselves when they around me as I don't want them to put a big act on. When you fall in love with someone it could be for 101 reasons their voice, their eyes, their personality, their smile... but most importantly is if they make you feel really happy inside. Some people believe the price you pay to be in love is the pain you feel when you lose them - I say it's worth it.Never build a wall around yourself or try to block out your emotions - life's too short for that. Open up, be yourself, sure be vulnerable and enjoy that feeling that you get when you're in love with someone. It might only last for a short time or it could last you for the rest of your lives together but who cares as it's still worth it even if it only last for one perfect day.

    toketee ... I think I understand what you are saying...
    If you all read the last part of my profile it says... love cannot conquer all but having the same values can ... but as you toketee ...I do not beleive love can not be present... it part of it all... infact it is the greatest part... just NOT the ONLY part...but then what do i know...LOL.. I just wish I could be in love... not sure if I will ever truly have that feeling...

    I can't offer to much advice in this department since I have yet to ever be "in Love". Even though I've been married twice... sounds funny, I know. I can tell you that Love is NOT enough to make a marriage work.... I can also tell you that Love IS neccessary to make a marriage work. Make sense? I've learned the hard way. I look forward to experiencing what real love for a mate is (after all, I know what it is not).

    I agree with cue ball. But I want to add that love is also being able to have whole conversations with someone without uttering a word. True love is unconditional. Not like that of love for you children, but true love is knowing that even the bad habits of your mate are tolerable because, it really doesnt matter. You will love them no matter what. Through thick and thin. and that nothing and nobody in this world could come between it.

    I'm sorry that sounds more codependant than love. Love for me is when you feel that special connection, when you can look in that other persons eyes and KNOW that there is not another person on this big world that you would rather be with. When you can accept that person regardless of thier flaws,knowing that they feel the same.Being able to have a conversation about anything at anytime not having to comprimising your own views. For me this is just a small piece.

    Real love is when you want so much to please a certain person or persons more than you would for yourself. You want them happy even if it isn't convenient. There are different kinds of love. I am a mother and my love for my kids is unique and total. My love for Mark, my fiance' (met here at Large Friends) is very deep, and he feels the same way toward me. My relationship brings me great happiness. It just feels so totally right. Then I have love for friends and some family members.

    And over all of it there is God's love...unconditional.
