What Is Love? Many people throw around the words, “I love you” everyday without really knowing the true meaning of love. There are many different meanings of “love” in the dictionary. There’s a romantic love, a love between two people,which can be sexual and intimate, the love between parents and their children, or between friends. Another type of love is the kind of love or devotion to God. Each of these all have different meanings and cannot be used the same. That is why love cannot be defined with just one definition, but with several. When a person thinks of love, they immediately think of the romantic kind. Being “in love” makes a person’s heart beat fast, or they get butterflies every time they are with that person or think of him or her. When they are talking to the person, they just wish that moment could last forever. They want to put their happiness before their own, but at the same time they want them making theirselves happy as well. Both people in the relationship try to make the other person a better person and help them grow. Loving someone means trusting them with everything and always being faithful and honest to that person. A person has to love the other person no matter what, and love them for who they are, even with their flaws and mistakes. Being “in love” cannot be describable all the time, but this kind of love is a love everyone desires. Some people believe that love and sex are one in the same. If two people are in love, they should be having sex, or if two people are having sex, they are in love. This is not always true though. Just because a person is sexually attracted to another person, that does not mean they love them. Another thing is that some people say they love their signicicant other, but then go and continiously cheat on them. If someone even thinks about cheating or cheats on them, that is not love. People should not say that they love someone if they are willing to hurt them, or break their heart by doing things with someone else. If someone wants to play around with someone else’s feelings, they should stay single. The meaning of love to little kids is different then adults. When I was kid, I loved everything. Children’s mommy and daddy are the ones that will always love them the most when their a kid because they are always their for them and help them when they need it. They also love all their toys, games, playing outside, and watching cartoons. When I was a kid, I experianced the easier love. The love where I can love everyone, or everything and not be judged by not knowing what love really is. Many teenagers believe that they believe in love when it usually just lust. Now a days, when teenagers start to date, they give everything up for…

An Examination on Love
In Canto 26 of Paradiso, blind Dante is confronted by St. John about love. Dante tells St. John that he wants God’s love. John asks Dante to be more specific in why he wants God’s love.

What Is Love?
Who can really explain love? Almost everyone in the world uses the word love when saying, "I love you." One written definition says, "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."('Definition of love'). My definition has similarities to what experts say love should be, but not exact. I believe that one should find…

Love for the Game
As I glance at the ball then the goal, ball again then goal. I can feel the adrenaline rushing through my veins as I am on a breakaway. Feeling the defender right behind as I am sprinting as fast as I can to score the game winning goal. As I’m sprinting I can feel the defender trying to take me down, and the next moment I can hear the fans cheering while everything I see is in slow motion, I went past the defender then I struck…

But Love is what makes you happy. It's what gives power for you. Whenever you see the person you love, you would just feel very happy. Only if…
What is love? That is the only question that I couldn’t answer. Yesterday during lunch, my friends and I were discussing about boys.

It is not like I am against of people having their love at first sight at…
What is the meaning of love? Is love meant to be used and then later thrown away? Love was created for two people, and when those people get married, it is a forever thing. Yes, fights, disagreements, and pain come between every married couple, but that should not mean you walk out on them when you have had enough. This makes marriage to simple, to easy. You can marry anyone you want, and you can leave him or her whenever you want, making the marriage rate go down…
