i decided to ask a few of the people i know what love means to them. in their own words, i wanted them to define love and how they feel its supposed to be. this is what i've recieved so far :)
from my uncle henry:
i love this by the way!
"after almost 38 years together I still can't describe love, but it sure feels good to be in love."
from the lovely dianna mcallister:
she and her husband chaz have been married since fall of 2009. they are one of the cutest couples :)
"Love is a small word with big meaning, and it will always mean something different for every person, but I choose to look at it like this eight-year-olds answer to the same question..."Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends every day even though they know eachother so well." Love is acceptance and peace with another person. "There are two kinds of love: Our love and God's love, but God made both kinds." -Dianna McAllister
from the darling shawna o'neil:
"love, love, love, beauty. It's that refreshing euphoric feeling, that everlasting touch. That feeling that is there when you first open your eyes, the trust- the hope- the love with no lies. That feeling that is there when you crawl into bed, that feeling of love that overwhelms your head. The flutter in your stomach that makes your head light, the care that keeps you from going to bed in a fight. :) "
from the pretty ashley lorona:
"love is one of the easiest things to feel but hardest to explain. Its that excited feeling that keeps you up at night. The same feeling that makes you go out and by that dress, love that song, and give up things once important to you, for the happiness of someone else. Love is the bond that is created after recognizing someones greatness . You can create it if you just open your eyes to see the positive things in another person. If you can do this easily, you'll love easily. "
from the dear maggie sciales:
"love is what makes you get up in the morning when you think you might see him soon, and what makes it hard to sleep after you just left him. love puts the smile on your face, in your eyes and in your voice. love is what makes you put your hair in that bun you have such a hard time doing because he says it looks beautiful, but love also makes you feel cute in pajamas because he says you are. love is the feeling you get when you say the same thing at the same time, and laugh at the same joke, even when it's not funny to anyone else. i guess love is being perfect together, and to each other. "
"love is a realization that you have found someone you can relate to on almost every aspect of life, and for where you falter they are stronger. It is not about the diamonds, chocolate, and commercialized holidays. It is about being with the one that makes you the happiest as well as you making the ones who love you enjoy their lives. It is a two way street that when ridden properly can be the best times in anyone's life." -liam
"you've found true love when you can be best friends with that person for the rest of your life and not get bored with them. You've found actual love if that other person motivates you to be the best that you can possibly be.If you're having a hard time sleeping because your reality is better than your dreams, you've found true love.You may be in love when you find NOT the perfect person, but an imperfect person you see perfectly. The most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or touched or even heard, but they must be felt with the heart instead.... But that's the sappy side of me, the other side says, screw it, love will come one day. =)" -Steve
