You have asked the right person. When it strike’s, you can’t think of anything else other then how to please that person!!!!!!!

LOVE “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not resentful. Love does not keep a score of wrongs. Love stays away from the negative and it rejoices in truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes & endures all things. Love never fails – Corinthians 13:4–8” Regardless of your faith, I believe this scripture is pretty much dead on.

@shockvalue. Thank you. Every time I’ve scrolled down the main page and seen this question, my head started to bob….

I would agree with most everything about. However, I would like to point out that love can exist outside of Christ [or any one deity for that matter.]

I think love exists within all of us. It is the ability to make someone feel safe. You want to do everything you can to make that one person happy. It’s the concept that you know you can trust that person with anything and it will not change their image of you. It’s the feeling that every thing you do with that person is special, regardless of how much it costs.Love is like oxygen, you need it to live. All you need is love. The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

There’s a reason that the majority of poetry and lyric is about love yes I know, extremely broad general statement because people need love. Love is everywhere, in every thing and every one. Therefore, when people tie love to a specific diety, “Love is the Light of Christ” , I just feel like it limits it so much.

love is a strong word,
it means many things.
you can love someone or something,
and then theres being in love.
two very different types of love.
if right now it is just a crush I’d say it’s lust.
love is the best feeling in the world.

Its a chemical reaction in your brain. You’re just a carbon-based organism. Its not your fault.

love is when my wife beats me up and doesn’t let me eat for a few days.

Love is the difference between, Spit and Swallow!

My personal definition of love is caring about someone more than yourself, and always wanting the best for them and making sure you can make them happy.

@axlefoley amazing answer, ahaha.
