Love is the feeling you have when you know that somebody is there for you. Love is when you're willing to do everything possible to give that special person the best life possible. Love is, as Tekt0nic said, partial insanity but at the same time, the willingness to give everything you have to keep that special person happy.

i didn't vote cause i couldn't relate with any of the options but i feel like i know what love is. even tho i've only been in one serious relationship, the drama through it and after it has left me with what real love is. but then again, maybe im wrong. maybe there's something else i don't know but i doubt it :XD:

i said yea i guess but honestly im second guessing my opinion. i think love is when u r on the edge on insanity and u wake up thinking about suicide but the image of someone in ur mind keeps u from pulling the trigger, i think thats love.....the ultimate reason to live. o and btw thnx for lettin meh participate.

Love (the tickling stomach) I think is becouse you're nervous, same as doing your first speech in front of your entire skool class. You look up so much to that girl/boy, that you don't know how to act, you get nervous (maybe even fear, of doing something wrong or losing him/her).
But I havn't really experienced it that much, almost 8 years ago when I loved for the last time, nowadays sometimes I get a burn, but no more sweet love.
I'm currious though if there isn't a good theory about it, some genius psychiatrist who made a studie of it, with the chemicals and stuff, there must be a simple explanation I think. Well anyway nice poll :D

Coming up to six years with my wife and I learn a little more each day I wake and see her face.

Love is knowing that you are never alone, that there is always another who will turn and stand with you, who you will support without pause, someone who is as much a part of you as your own eyes and linbs and heart.

Love is something that will only bring you happiness...it's the rest of the crap that comes along with it that makes it difficult. There's a saying "no ones perfect until you fall in love with them". I think someone missunderstood this. The truth is "you know you love someone when you know they're not perfect, but love them all the same".
Love with a pure heart and I promiss all you people who have been hurt will learn that it was all worth it. It's when you become selfish that things go to rot.

i think love is different for everyone, being found at different times, under different circumstances and with different people. maybe two people can realize they are in love after 20 years, or on another hand after only days. There isnt a straight answer to this pole i dont think...

i remebered now of a qoute i have on my desktop. don't ask me from where it is, a friend send it to me :D i think its from a movie or something. and i find it cute. you know what love is when you know you can die and lose nothing here because you are feeling that.

"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with?
Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back.
And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart.
Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back.
Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this.
To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all.
You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived. "

That is the worst comment ever I have seen here, to me.

Sounds like you have underestimated the power of love, or you haven't experienced yet. Or you have too much porn. :|

"Sounds like you have underestimated the power of love"

Oh no, I would never dare to underestimate it's power. It has GREAT power to override logical thinking of affected individual (just like most of human emotions) - at least that's what I've figured out after observing recent actions of a few of my friends..

What I'm trying to avoid though is treating it like it's some kind of miracle or some unusual supernatural power - it's just a integral part of what humans are and how they work. Kind of like a Service in Windows OS - it has its purpose and does its part in keeping the whole species running.

"or you haven't experienced yet"

I'm just currently not under it's influence - if I were, I probably would not be able to look at the whole matter in the way I do now. It's also part of its functions - it alters your point of view on certain things (may have something to do with chemical reactions but I have no knowledge in that field so I can't really go into discussing that)

"Or you have too much porn."

Is that even possible?? j/k ;)

PS. Those are just my opinions on the matter, I'm not forcing them onto anyone and I respect the fact that many/most/all may disagree with me.

I voted for the one closest to my answer - but it doesn't quite fit. I haven't been dating for 5 years, only the past 3 and a bit. But I know what love is - it's can be totally amazing but it can also be trully awful.

Both what frostfire101 and methycal say can be true as I have experienced both and I'm sure other people have experienced love in other ways as well.

love is differant for every person

i think the more you look for love, the harder it is to find,
and the more you try to define it, the more complex and confusing it becomes,
i think we are all better oof, not questioning love, not trying to find it, but getting on with enjoying it.

When you're with the same women in your school for 12+ years, it seems like I'm isolated with the same women, who have no interest in me. So no, I have no idea what love is

yes....

love is something that brings you nothing but pain and hurt...

love is something that can be destroyed by the lies of another...

love is something that causes all your fears to rise up and torment you...

love is something that can cause a simple sentence to be taken out of context and be mis-understod...

love is something that can cause a person to think of taking things to an extreme that can cost ones own life...

love is something that can turn a persons own beliefs against them and ruin everything they stood for...

love is something that can cause everything that you once stood for to come crumbling down...

love is something that has pretty much destoyed my life, taken my dreams , and taken most of my sanity...

love is something that keeps making me wish that something would take the pain away even tho i know it never will...

love is something that can cause the most painful of wounds and the greatest of scars...

love is something that once it's been lost...

it can never be found again.

i think that when you love someone- then at that moment you trully love them- love can fade away or die or be renewed etc... but at that one moment you love that person... i also think there are degrees of love such as therson that i've known now for 9 years i know that i could never stop loving him, but others i can, and i call those weaker love, and that this one is stronger...

and there all sorts of love also in addition to significant other love...
