    Three stages; "drive", "attraction" and "attachment"

    Drive = primary sex hormones
    Attraction = serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline + related psychological effects
    Attachment = Oxytocin i.e "strangehold phase"

    Love is. Only we know what is love when we are in love
    Love is only questioned when we are out of love.
    This sounds it's some kind of religion. Very bad :no:

    it's being with someone who you think is beautiful, being able to open up and say whatever you want with them, thinking about them all the time, not just wanting to have sex with them, but when you do have sex its the best thing ever, resulting in the two of you falling asleep in the comfort of each others arms..

    I found that before I found my significant other, whenever I had boyfriends it was just another part of teenage life: school, friends, parties, boyfriend. You can go through a lot of boyfriends this way. :p:

    But now, with my now-fiancé, it's like it's no longer just another aspect of life, he's a person to experience life WITH, alongside me. (And there was never, ever any awkwardness, no need to flirt with eachother and try and win eachothers' affections - it just happens.)

    You'll know when it happens.

    It's a conscious action that you do in your heart and with your whole self, and decide to keep on doing it every time, no matter what. And then you know it's right.

    In my opinion love is caring about someone so deeply that you want to spend every waking hour with them. That you couldnt imagine life without them, like it would tear a giant piece of you from your body if ever they were to leave your life. My idea of love is sitting next to someone by the ocean, hearing the sound of their heartbeat on yours, masked by the sounds of the sea and knowing in your heart that you never want that moment to end. Love is the sick feeling you get when you care about someone but they can't be there with you and you long for them to be in your arms, to feel their touch. to feel their love.

    That's my idea of love, but what would i know. I've never been in love. I've had 12 girlfriends since i was 13 and not one of them i fell in love with. I guess you could say i'm still waiting.

    Love though has different meanings to everyone. Teenagers for example have a different view of what 'love' is than say a middle aged person may have because when you are young, the 'love' seems more real and you fall in and out of it so quickly plus most teens will believe they are in 'love' after a few weeks or months of dating someone. It's probably one of the most hardest single words to define in the entire english dictionary.
    Do you not think that wanting to spend every waking hour with them is a bit much???

    I know a lot of people will probably be thinking, 'You have to define love for yourself.' but it's really bothering me. How am I supposed to really know when the longing to be next to someone and thinking about them all day is really love? Or how can I know when it's not?
    Its when some one makes u feel that tingle in ur heart, like nobody else could

    In short and easy languages, love is some addictive feeling like what you have after taking drugs. Consequently, let us define gay/straight in the following way: Suppose you are male. Then as far as you like a guy in an addictive manner, you are gay, even though you dont have sex in your mind. Indeed, it will eventually come.

    Love is when you can sit across a room from the girl that your heart beats for and watch her on the happiest day of her life, getting married. It kills you inside but you know that she is happy and for that you so are you.
    It's been three weeks and it still hurts. Gutted!

    LOVE, n.
    A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease, like caries and many other ailments, is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient.
