What is love?

This past week has been a very, very trying week for me. I started this blog so that I could find some answers to my life before I had to make some major life changes but it appears that I may not get the opportunity. Life is funny that way.

One day you meet someone and you fall in love. For some people it is love at first sight ‒ deep and true. For others it is a feeling that grows from a tinny spark ‒ to a roaring flame that engulfs them. Everyone wants it? Everyone needs it? So -

What is love?

I have never been a love at first sight person. All my relationships that have ever meant anything to me took time and I had to work at them. But what is love to me? Good question. You would think that if I am asking the question that I have already thought about it but the truth is this is my first time really thinking about it. So what is it to me?

The love for my children is an easy love to explain. It is an unconditional love. I would do anything to ensure their health, well being and happiness. I would die for them no hesitation or questions asked. It hurts to see them hurt. When their sad, it hurts. Little things they do bring you great joy. It’s a love that comes without thought.

Man / Woman, girlfriend / boy friend and husband / wife love, what is it? It’s a feeling / emotion that warms your heart and intoxicates your brain. But what does it really mean? For some people it is just like an unconditional love. For me there is a difference. I enjoy being around her and seeing her. Seeing her smile, the way she tosses her hair and listening to her voice. It really does not matter what she says because we are together. This person makes me smile / happy, makes me laugh, makes me cry and sometimes she will even make me mad. She challenges me and makes me feel good about myself. I over look her imperfections and notice the things that make her beautiful. I want to be around her and when I am not she fills my thoughts, dreams and my wishes. When she is sad or hurt ‒ It hurts me and I would do almost anything to make her happy again. It would be a fulfilling relationship for both of us. I would like to say I am a hopeless romantic fool that would just Die without the woman I love but I am a survivor and know that not to be true.

This is love to me in a nutshell. I may have oversimplified it or maybe I really am a romantic fool after all. That is why I am so unhappy now.

So, what is love to you?

Please comment. I would really like to hear other people’s opinions.
