What is love?
Remember my last blog, I talked about how a childhood friend of mine is getting married. That got me thinking about love. What is love? How do you know you’re in love? Is love real? If you asked me 6 months ago my answer would be love is not real. What I went through when I was younger probably shaped my view a little. Not a little, a lot. If you asked me if I thought love was real now, i would have to say yes. Love is something that starts out as infatuation and then turns into actions. The reason why I think a lot of people break-up and get a divorce is because they have forgotten how to love or not willing to love that person anymore.
People think love is when the person you are with buy you flowers and candy. That’s not what love is. Sure that is what they do for the ones they love but that doesn’t prove how much they love you. Imagine this. You have a puppy, and you love that puppy so much, you would protect it and take care of it. Not just because you have to but because you want to. You would be there for that puppy no matter what. You probably can’t imagine that puppy not being by your side.That’s what love is.
They’re different types of love but what I just explained is the core. What I’m trying to say is love is when you are willing to protect that person, take care of that person, support that person, and be there for that person. Not just because you have to but because you want to. You can find the core of love in many types of love.
Lets get to the question. How do you know when you are in love? Someone said when you don’t have to answer that question. I guess that means.
In my opinion if you are willing to do those things I have mentioned and your significant other is willing to do the things I mentioned, you are in love.
If you trust your significant other to do the things that I have mentioned, you are in love.
If you think your significant other is the most attractive person you have ever seen in your entire life and they feel the same way. On top of that you are willing to do the things that I have mentioned. Congratulations you are in love.
Don’t forget you should be best friends with your significant other too because you should be able to talk to them and have fun.
I never been in love yet. I been through the falling part but never been in love. All I know is I have friends and family that are willing to protect me, support me, and take care of me when I need them, and I would do the same. That is how I know they love me, and I love them.
