so your answer is no, you cant give her a definition?
i think the question is really asking what your definition of love would be. because of course everyone has a different opinion on it, thats what makes ask great. (and why theres a lot of arguing :P)

1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.

2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.

3. sexual passion or desire.

There is no specific definition. Love is all things rolled into one. When you experience true love, you will know.

It is when one or more people are willing to do anything for each other, regardless of the consequences.

Love is something you feel for some. that you always want to be by their side and protect them in a time of need. You love them and only want to make them happy.

The best definition I've ever seen ...

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

New International Version (NIV)

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

this is a detailed definition of what love actually is,

Love, (verb) a choice that one makes to do what is best for someone else, and to put that other person's needs first, no matter the cost to yourself

example: Jesus Christ dying on the cross for our sins, doing what was best for us, even though he had to go through excruciating circumstances to do so.


if you need the attributes of love, go to waltoreaguns answer

soooo, i still dont get what you are asking me, i'm not a democrat, i'm a conservative, and most people would call me republican. so what are you asking me exactly?
Report as
i truly mean no offense i tried to publish a question, needless to say it got erased. just by your link i have to infer you are anti 2nd amendment, if i am wrong please forgive me. i am so used to being hated because i believe that the 2nd amendment to the constitution defines freedom
Report as
i forgive you, but seriously, i have been fighting with people on this site over the 2nd amendement in absolute comment wars over the last few months, i am one of the strongest supporters of the second amendement you will ever find, if you are reffering to me saying "if you want the attributes of love, go to walto reaguns answer" and i am going to have to assume that is what you are reffering to, then you should know that just because i agree with him in this sense, does not mean that i agree with him in regards to all things. next time, please do not be so quick to judge me based on the fact that i happened to agree with someone on a single definition, i would very much appreciate it.

The greeks had a great concept of love look it up! The strongest love is called "agape". (Dragging your interest)

Love is a choice. It's that simple. We choose who we let into our little worlds, we choose how much we reveal and how soon we reveal it. And when someone does something too severe we choose to shut them out and we eventually get over it. Without romanticizing it. Love is simply "a choice".

It's the thing that makes life worth getting up in the mornings for.
It's the thing that sometimes makes you do stupid stuff.
It's so special, so utterly amazing. And no one can take it from you. It's always there. It's the strongest, most powerful thing in the world, and no one should live without it. :)

a long time ago, I asked my dad what love is. he had me read the 13th. chapter of 1st Corinthians in the bible (new testament).. I never had to ask again! That's been about fifty years ago..I still read it from time to time...:-)

love is when hes the last thing on your mind when you go to sleep and the first thing on your mind when you wake up. Its when you cant stop staring into his eyes because they somehow know everything about you. Its when he remembers the littlest details from memories you had so long ago. love is knowing that he will always be there for you even if you make stupid mistakes. He will hold your hand and show you off to all of his friends. and when you need someone to hold he will give you hugs that could last forever. love is when he knows your'e not feeling good and cuddles in a warm blanket and watches all the chick flicks. Love is about being with someone that truly makes you happy and you can talk to,

When you know someone who's interests you would put before your own, when you would want for them what you want for yourself, when you can't remember your life before they came into it, when you can't imagine being without them, when they do some things you don't agree with, yet you can accept them as they are. When you find you are a better person when you are with them. And when you can let them go because you know you will feel the same when they return.

Love is being kind, understanding, humble, seeking not your own pleasure but theirs, it does not crush but builds, it is always thinking of that one love, it is having not eyes for another. It is patient, forgiving. Love does not control, but has self-control. it is wanting, desiring, needing (without being needy). It makes you feel fulfilled, warm, trusted, safe, elated. I love true, pure love it is extraordinary.

Signs of being in-love:
1. You've forgotten your ex
2. You cant stop thinking about the other person
3. You care about the other person a lot
4. You find quirks charming
5. You don't notice other guys/girls as much
6. You love spending time together
7. You don't mind to compromise for them sometimes
8. Other priorities aren't as important anymore
9. When you think about your future, they're in it<3

**But if you mean love like you love a family member, then for me it's like Id do anything for them to be healthy and happy. Like Id give everything I can to keep them smiling(: **

Hope this helped!

Love is when you are fine with the idea of being with one person forever.They send your heart beating fast every time you see their face. Its a deep feeling where you can look past and confront their faults and accept them even as your own. You think about them almost every minute of the day and you can compromise your plans for their happiness without truly regretting it as long as they smile.---- <3 This is what I feel for my Boyfriend max :) Luv ya max ;)

The Bible at 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 states:"Love is long-suffering and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, does not get puffed up, does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." Truly our heavenly Father who instilled in us the wonderfully quality of love would know how perfect love is defined.
