unique to everyone.
thats what makes it so hard to define. the best any of us could do for you would probably to be either give you our own, personal definition, or just give you a wiki link of it.
I think the only way you can know would be to experience it yourself…
Now, if you want to know how to tell if you love someone, thats a different question entirely.

It is something that doesn’t really need defined. You know when you are in love.

very strong attraction toward another its actually very hard to explain because it is a certain feeling that is different for a lot of people

Its a completely different definition for everyone and there are many different types of love.

Love is not a feeling, nor is it an emotion. Love is the respect for someone that wishes the best for them. Love is sacrifice. Love means forgoing your own desires for that of your lover.

Calling love a feeling or an emotion is a dangerous situation. The problem is that emotions change over time. Love does not. If you believe that love is what you feel, you will believe that when you no longer feel it, you are no longer in love.

Love is not something you experience; it’s something you do.

Love is your soul’s recognition of its counterpart in another person. (wedding crashers)

God is Love. (1 John 4:8) He who does not love does not know God, for God is love

Love is God. Love is a blessing if it’s true. It’s a strong emotion that can portray a feeling of regard and attraction to a person.

I feel like saying “Baby, don’t hurt me” but two people beat me to it :-)
