    I didn't believe love existed until last year. True, requited love is possibly the best thing in the world- and you're probably right, maybe it is like a drug. It does stupid things to me sometimes, like make me sit on the floor and cry for an hour. But I can put up with that for the good times I have with my significant other. Compared to other experiences I've had, it's like heaven. Love is much much more than sex- it's friendship, caring, fun and laughter, sharing things you wouldn't share with anyone else, being able to be completely and utterly yourself around someone- in my case, an absolute prat- and not feel silly (which I use to it's full capacity) and so much more which I'm not able to put into words. But these past nine months have definitely been the best months of my life. My boyfriend is my best friend. Easily. I find that very, very important- we were friends before we became more.

    I'm a cynical whinger most of the time, but when it comes to love, I'm a hopeless romantic- as someone has already said about themselves, so at least I'm not alone.

    agreed. my bf is my best friend, and he has changed my life. even if we split after uni, i won't regret a second of it, becuase he has taught me so much about life, love and friendship. I feel lucky to know him, let alone be in love with him.

    No, I haven't, doesn't mean I'm not in a position to say that.

    I dont know... love is such an amazing emotion I dont think its possible to say its overrated. Sure you need to be a bit careful when you're around it or in it but I dont think you can say its not one of the most powerful emotions you can experience. If you've ever been in love you'll know that you'd never be able to say 'weeeell its not really all that'.

    Yeah, I guess you've got a point there. But I still don't see what there is more to it, it's like friendship and infatuation, as far as I'm aware.

    There's supposed to be something more to it than that...I think...

    Being in a relationship for 7 years could just mean you are staying together because you're used to each other's company rather than love. To someone who doesn't believe in love - that is not much proof.

    No, you believe you are in love. You might be, you might not be. The problem is that the closer you get to love the more subjective your opinion becomes.

    Poica wasn't saying you necessarily weren't in love- she was saying that staying together for seven years isn't proof that you are in love. Heck, my parents were together for nearly twenty years and they say now (don't know if it's true) that they never really loved each other.

    If people are questioning whether love exists, the fact that you have spent seven years with your significant other isn't, as she said, proof that you love each other. No one is saying you don't love each other, it's just not proof on its own.
