    Actively putting the needs, wants, well being, etc. of someone else before your own.

    Love for another?

    Selflessness. Devotion.

    in words, perhaps the clearest I can make my own definition of love.
     
  6. I was dumped once because the girl defined her version of love, and I disagreed with her. Then as I started questioning it more and more, I wondered if I even knew what love is. Maybe it is because I am a Scrooge, but sometimes I think there is no such thing as love. To put it simply and without much thought though, I just think love is caring deeply for someone and thinking of them before yourself.

    Love is amazing, it has the ability to bring you up as high as it can kick you down. Completely worth it.
    hahaha okay.

    Love is coming to TB daily, despite knowing that you'll come across a Poop-Loops post in a good portion of OT threads.

  10. Actually, one of my favourite quotes is this:

    Love is not a feeling, it's a behaviour.

    (Oprah)

    Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking, Love is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    "the souls recognition of its exact counterpoint in another" - Wedding Crashers...haha (the quote is only close) cheesy, humerous, but kinda true...

    Poop loops: "Love is rolling a natural 20."

    lol

    love is an inherently spiritual thing, isn't defined by emotions or any situation. Love is there when you care about / appreciate someone despite what they can or can't do for you. People (imo) screw up relationships when they expect to benefit without being prepared to give.

    I agree with MM.
    God is love.
    And since I can't define God, I can't define love.
    I could maybe mention characteristics of love, but couldn't define it.

    Good list of Characteristics for Bible readin folk is in 1st Cor. 13

    I can;t really describe love, but I know I feel all warm and fuzzy. But tbone has come closest.

    Now if me an my ex were like that, we'd probably strill be together. I did the breaking up, I didn't feel supported, or trusted sometimes.

    Amen!

    God is love, and the one who resides in love resides in God, and God resides in him. By this love is perfected with us… We love because he loved us first.
