what does love mean to you



A lot of us say that being a third party is bad, but I really beg to differ.

&I talked to someone, probably near but can't relate to, about the new love. Her new third-party love. Weird as it seems, it doesn't seem wrong. Part of me say this isn't wrong, because what we perceive True Love to be is constantly changing through experiences and interactions with others. Break-ups means that one have realised that their definition of True Love is wrong and that it have changed.

Loving is a process like growing up, it progresses. We grow up understanding more and being more arouse with surroundings. From young, we only knew Love is for the Love for basic necessity of growing up, like milk and probably the pacifier. Then we grew older by learning Love is the care and concern that parents give their child unconditionally. As we grow older, Love becomes more cliche and takes the form of simply almost anything - from holding hands to kissing to sexual.

I don't know what goes further than here, and I've yet to experience it myself. Love is just something that people sacrifice their blood and sweat to hunt for it. But in the first place, is it huntable, or has it always been there and that you just made it lost its meaning.

What does Love mean to you? Just companion or something unexplainable? Even being in a love-triangle, doesn't mean it's wrong to love. It's probably just wrong timing.

  2. It'd be great if some of these stories could be grammatically corrected before being published, for the sake of the readers' sanity.

  3. to anonymous 2-

    I prefer to leave the text sent to me exactly how it is. It's not mine to correct.

    The only time I will edit is if the person that sent me the text is from another country and asks me to make the necessary changes.

    xo

  6. to me, love means knowing you'd sacrifice ANYTHING for them. Whether it's a sibling or child or partner, you know you would do anything for that person - there's never a doubt in your mind. that's what makes love amazing.

  7. Love never needs an explanation!
    You just feel it, when it's there, from the tips of your toes to the top of your head!

  9. Love is commitment, putting someone else's interests above your own. Infatuation/lust are everything else.

    A third party is not putting someone else's interests above your own, and it's certainly not commitment.

    If you really loved someone in a committed, loving relationship, you'd let him/her go.

    We let love take on the definition on whatever is convenient for us at the time, but we know better. Love is constant; only our perception of it changes.

    This blog is far from only dedicated to love. It's mostly lust and infatuation and butterflies and fantasies. Love is weathering the good and bad, and it's far from poetic at times.

  10. Love is thinking of someone 30 times a day.

  11. I've never been in love with a man/woman, so I can only talk abot family-love or friendship-love. and for me it is complete trust, be able to be yourself and no need to think about what you're doing around them, be compleatly comfortable.

  12. Love is the bottom line. It's not unexplainable at all.

  13. Love is finding that part of mine that I never thought I'd find...

  14. Love is very complex. Its unexplainable. Everyone has their own idealistic view on what love should be or what it is. There is no incorrect way to love. And everyone can feel it. But really, love is love. Enjoy it.

  15. feeling centered when with this person, as if everything makes sense yet nothing makes sense in unison. a feeling of calm, relief remixed with butterflies and flushed cheeks.. craving ineraction with this person yet not pressuring each moment to do so.. wanting the best for the other person even if meaning to sacrifice the love for the moment, simply because you want him/her to be the best they can possibly be.. knowing in your heart, no matter what struggles or obstacles or lessons or amazing circumstances you have endured, it is worth it. love is not cold, jealous, bitter, frantic, automatic or perfect.. love is love & it is everything.

  16. love is something you shouldn't try to define.

  17. Love is probably the most varied thing out there; it's so personal and different for every individual; in how they feel and deal with it, and how they choose to act or react to it.

    It is also probably the biggest oxymoron.
    It both builds and destroys.

  18. Love comes without being invited & bring new goals with him .
    It makes you feel infinite.

  19. People always say that love comes with pain and pleasure but in the end the pleasure always outweighs the pain. Love just destroyed me...and to be completely honest, I am not sure I would ever want to feel the pleasure again if it was ever going to end with this result. I am usually a complete optimist, but I just don't know if I can do that with love again.

  21. Love is letting somebody go when you know it is selfish to hold on.

  22. Every time I smile at him, it is more love than anyone can ever imagine. And he doesn't even know it.

  23. love is, however cliche, that tingly feeling in the pit of your stomach whenever they're near you, and how when you think of them, the world around you melts away into just a warm fuzzy bliss

    but that's just me...

  24. "Love is a process like growing up." I like that. I hadn't thought of it like that before. Very true.

  25. this was really exactly what i needed today. i'm in the "love triangle situation" right now as the third party... with a boy i really like (and who likes me back) who's dating one of my best friends. i just found out today and was crushed.

    but maybe it's just bad timing :)

  26. It isn't bad timing... RUN away.... Hores

  27. I think the person above means *whores*

    & I think the term 'love' is open to interpretation. I'm still not sure what it means to me.

  32. Love is everything and nothing all at once... it's living, breathing. It's sexual and nonsexual!

    I really loved this! x.

  33. i like to read your stories because there is so much truth. i understund a meaning of love in giving to other person all the best without asking something back..

  34. Nobody would ever understand how horribly amazing it is to be the other woman unless you have already been one.

    It may not be the best place in the world but the rewards are priceless, especially if you do not expect anything in return.


    Love is unconditional.
