    I'm going through a bit right here in my personal life where I'm making kind of a difficult decision. So if people don't mind my asking...

    What do you consider love? When do you know you're in love with someone, and what's your own personal definition?

    A broad topic, I know, but it's different for everyone and I just wanted some different opinions for my own sake and for some good discussion.

    You know you're in love with someone when you deeply care for them, feel connected to them on every level possible, and can honestly say you want to spend the rest of your life with them.

    Love is being willing to forgo the things you want for the happiness of someone else.

    This doesn't mean loving someone is going to be what makes you happy in the end, or that you can be in a healthy relationship with that person, but to me, that's what love is.

    But you're going to have to give us specifics if you want good advice.

    :lol 



    But seriously love is when you care about someone, it's a basic showing of caring and compassion. And when you're in love, you'll just know it.

    When you would gladly die for someone, when you would walk to through hell, fire and brimstone just for the chance to stand next to them, talk to them, or get a galnce at them. When you can put that person before yourself, then that is love.

    Nothing to me. Love has proven itself to me that not everybody can have it. I may feel love, but nothing in return comes for me.

    (Basically saying the hot chicks in my high school are taken. :lol )

    Deeply caring about somebody for sure and deep compatability on multiple levels i think. Me and my fiancee are both geeks in our own ways. Hell we both have our own toy collections (granted hers is much smaller of beanie babies and pez dispensers but hey toys none the less). Its so hard to describe what love is because we will all perceive it differently.

    When you look at them and see your unborn children in their eyes. When their pain becomes your pain, and their pain makes you want to kill the person who caused it. When sex becomes just a facet of your relationship, and not the entire relationship. I am female, I could go on forever about this stuff......

    Also, in specific regards to the thread question, that's a question our species has been trying to figure out for a long time I think. Most people confuse infatuation with love, but I think when it's actually what you consider to be true love it's something that you just know what it is. Different people will define it differently because we each have different things in our lives that are important to us, and love generally highlights these things and shows us their importance. Overall though, the thing I would think is just that people in love have a bond which intertwines their lives in a way unique from all others.

    Problem with love is that it really has a broad range. I love a lot of my friends, but it's a different love then most of my family and that of my Wife. I would say that in its simplest form is just when you care about someone for who they are.

    Love tends to drive people to do the dumbest most stupid things at times. Its indescribable at best.....though we all try to. When do you know you're in love with someone? That's a good question. Typically we find out after we've already fell in it because we don't necessarily know it. For some, they find out a little late.
