What is love to you?

Back in the day, I had this experiment where I would ask all my friends what love meant to them. Today, I got the best answer to date:

Here is a long list of everybody’s answers from 2002. I left the AIM screen names in tact, so feel free to contact these people and argue your point.

Anyway, please please tell me what love means to you. I want your definition. How does it make you feel? Answer in the comments.

From 2002

mager leagues: whats love to you?
CrazyRay13: i dont beleve its perm
mager leagues: say somethin more
CrazyRay13: well my overall view is that people are never in love perm, and that eventually marriages turn into friendshiip, so i guess love = advanced form of friendship
CrazyRay13: who knows :-X
mager leagues: discuss :-X
CrazyRay13: i guess it just cant be described

months later..

crazy ray 13: love is something that can’t be put into words. its the feelings, emotions, and knowing that the other person experiences the same things for you that you feel for them. honestly, any attempt at trying to classify love is an injustice, because its so much more then words

Dev0140: there are like 50 different loves; you can love your friends; you can love your guys; friends…or your girlfriends; but not be IN love with them. sometimes its easy to say you love certain things, but its equally as easy to say you hate them too. when love and hate are 2 absolutes

Cocomaan: There is nothing in this world that is black and white. You don’t love or hate someone. This is common sense. But many people that I have known said that they have a girlfriend/boyfriend that they don’t ‘love’, and that their ‘true love’ is reserved for someone else; the mythical figure of the ‘perfect’ person. What I tell these people is that they are wrong (something they don’t want to hear). They DO love that person, whether they deny it or not. I love my brother and my parents in a different ‘shade’ than I love my closest friends and those ladies I admire. I love my Whitford gangsta’s, but not in the way I would love someone I marry. There is alot of love to go around, and you shouldn’t spare it for someone you don’t know yet. You should love all, and love some more than others, and some less. Always think in shades of gray.

Niccii44: when 2 people love each other; when you can’t think about anything but that person; and when the person feels the same way, and all you want to do is be with that person … and not even in a sexual way
mager leagues: your definition is my favorite
Niccii44: lol :-) thats b/c i am totally feeling in love lol

EmZAngL: u know what i think love is?
EmZAngL: finding someone that knows everything about you, and loves you anyway. someone who tells u a million times not to do something, and still loves you when you do it anyway, and doesn’t say i told you so when you get hurt.
EmZAngL: someone with whom you can be entirely yourself, without worrying about them making judgments or being “too cool” to be with you
EmZAngL: someone who you can cry with, or talk about anything with. someone who understands you and everything you say, and tries even if they don’t. someone who always makes you smile, even when all you feel like doing is crying. someone who loves you so much, they don’t mind not being in first place. someone who doesn’t mind, and in
fact loves, spending ridiculous amounts of time with you, and doesn’t get tired of you, even after hours and hours.
EmZAngL: someone who you can honestly say you miss when you go away or when they don’t talk to you.
EmZAngL: true real unconditional love is finding someone for whom you’re willing to give up everything, absolutely everything you have for that person. it’s so entirely special–i really believe that it’s the kind of thing you only ever get from your parents, dogs, and a few wonderful people in your entire life.
EmZAngL: anyone who experiences that kind of love is so lucky…
EmZAngL: anyways. just feeling sappy. and i didn’t answer this question so well before

Cocomaan: You asked me that before.
A) Enfatuation with another
B) A feeling of bonding with another person
C) A fucking joke.

mager leagues: whats love to you
SteveM76: what

Gianajmalak: love: i think that love is overcomplicated. when you hold a baby and it looks at you and is contented, that’s love. the simplicity of it all: trust and
comfort. trust that you’ll take care of each other and comfort just by being around one another. that’s what i think love is. And really, this explanation covers all
mager leagues: 8-)
(wifey candidate)

steffani602: it isn’t finding the perfect person but seeing an imperfect person perfectly…its feeling that someone out there knows who yor are and wants to be around you
and with you despite this
mager leagues: WHOA
steffani602: well you asked

mager leagues: can you define love?
Girliepa: no
mager leagues: why not
Girliepa: because i’ve never been in love
mager leagues: :-
mager leagues: good enough for me

KaRkAr385: hmmmm…when u think about the person all the time adn without them you just feel like shit and when you loev someone its like the best feeling in the world, a
natural high and when you find love its like all the things in the world u thought were crappy just change into something of beauty!
mager leagues: :-D

mangomanpsu: well, ill give you two answers. . .heres the good answer: love is the power between people to hold strong and true, and the ability to reach the highest
heights. . . .here’s the other answer: love is good sex with a blowjob afterwards
mager leagues: :-)

Dev0140: Love can sweep you off your feet and carry you along in a way you’ve never known before. But the ride always ends, and you end up feeling lonely and bitter. Wait.
It’s not love I’m describing. I’m thinking of a monorail. – J. Handey
Dev0140: how do you like them apples?
mager leagues: haha

rockinthasuburbs: love is found in the eye of the beholder and can be one’s highest acheivement or greatest downfall

Jrobinson0: when u really really really really like somebody and you cant stand being away from them and all you think about is being with them. DEVIN AND ME
mager leagues: l33t

SUNFLWR1684: umm..im not a dictionary

AlliH3586: man some people have some good answers

Helmy7: i think, its getting a special feeling in side when you look at someone and you know you want to be with them. and change nothing about them, even dispite there
flaws you still can’t get enough of them

Meggz77: love or “love” is just knowing the answer to that question, and not having to tell anyone.
Meggz77: b/c u love them. and they know. end of story.

sPankMuStafa: love is when two people have feelings of intimacy, for each other..i think
mager leagues: booo

Powerfulsoul27: umm…. extreme happiness and enjoyment around a certain person and extreme saddness when you’re not with them

The Heath1974: A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a
sense of underlying oneness.
A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.

Sexual passion.
Sexual intercourse.
A love affair.
An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.
mager leagues: whoa
The Heath1974: thats what the dictionary said

a nak in1420: love is all of your being. it gives you butterflies. it makes you happy

rockinthasuburbs: love is a feeling you’d do anything to have
mager leagues: :-)
rockinthasuburbs: and inspiration for living. love is life

quartnaz727: a comfortable feeling with someone whom you really enjoy and really care for… a really really really good friend

phildotbw: shit man, its one thing everybody wants but is hard to find. and i dont know how to really know if you are in love. i think im in love, but i dont know if ill ever know what it is

mager leagues (3:16:15 PM): whats love to you
MmAf 03 06 (3:16:19 PM): um…

MHolla1216: love is wakin up to the thought of somebody else, love is sacrifice, love is total dedication to that special someone, love is putting your all into a
relationship knowing someday you could feel the worst pain of your life

Zoe1903: trusting someone completely and knowing that they trust u, feeling like they understand u…

mager leagues: whats love to you
silly girl 869: oh god.
silly girl 869: i think that love is when you are ready to accept somebody, for their postive attributes and for their faults. and when you are ready to hold their hand
through a fucked up situation, when you’re ready to comprimise to make them happy. when you want to tell someone everything about you.. and when your heart beats faster
when they’re around.

OneMeanHeadDab: on the plus side, that mooshy stuff gets you good with girls…;-)

oklahomaerik: more than a feeling

thughokie: love is knowing you’ll do just about anything for sumone, no matter their faults, you compliment one another, you can hang out like best friends, but you can’t keep your hands off either, you just know it’s special, you can apart from them, but know you’ll end up together…
mager leagues: :-D great answer

    Love to me is complex- cannot be put into words, its an emotion & an action- talking about love is the reason we don’t FEEL it ~ on contrary to what others have said: “its comfortable”. Love for me is “uncomfortable” if you are truly in love, you always want to make it better: its work but should not feel as such- its passion, raw emotion, love is everything & nothing. To love yourself is more important b/c only with self acceptance can you really love others.

    Love is having an emergency contact who isn’t one of your parents.

    Love is a chemical reaction in the brain that helps ensure the continuation of the species.

  • smc

    there is no guarantee that you’ll ever get back the love you give away. that doesn’t tarnish what love is, though. love isn’t about what someone else can make you feel in return… it’s simply a selfless offering despite what may or may not happen as a result.

    one of my friends always says, “take your most precious moment, and give it away.” i add, “for free” – it’s the same concept.

    take any definition of the word, “free” — and the statement still holds true. love is free, with no asterisks involved.
