What about love?

Beitrag von Gitrock »

How do you see the love? What's your definition?
Is it difficult to handle with love?

What do you mean with "to handle love"? Love is nothing to handle. It is a relationship you have to handle, the communication but not love itself :wink: .

I also think that love can't be put into words. And love does not need to be put into words when two people love each other, do you know what I mean?

Love is even more than words could ever say, so I totally agree with Keswick.

One of my favourite songs: More than words - from Extreme.

It's always easy to say 'I love you' - but you should rather trust your feelings - and show them.

That's my point of view...

Best Regards

Frauke

Well... there's no real explanation for "love" indeed. But you could list some words that are parts of it.

Love...
- is warmth
- is brightness
- is sensitive
- can be cold
- can be destructive
- can hurt
- is joy
- is strength
- is an ability
- can cause tears
- can be torture
- can be darkness
- is constructive
- is long and short
- is the greatest power on earth

- is undefinable :)

I think agile is not wrong with what he/she (sorry) says. Love is strange, indeed love is like a stranger if you think about it. You can hardly put love into words, you never know if you can trust love because it runs away quickly. Like a stranger: you don't know him and he comes and goes without warning.

Well, it can be that way, but not necessarily. What about the feeling of having butterflies in your stomach? Isn't that something can notive precociously? Of course you can be struck all at once, but love's got many ways of unfolding itself.

Ok... very well then... just like a stranger. :P ;)

You're right Josh, but even the butterflies come without a warning. And (hopefully) develope into love :).

Josh, I know what you mean, don't worry. I think it is too difficult to write about all aspects of love in this thread. But yes, you're right when saying that a generalisation is not the best way to talk about such a topic. But it would go beyonf the scope of this thread, don't you think? :)
