    The "Male Bashing...Nahh" thread seemed to take a different turn, and got me to thinking...

    Someone asked why men want anything to do with women (other than sex).. My answer was "true love".. But..how do you define it?

    <b>What is "True Love" to you? How do you know that's what it is?</b>

    My answer:


    When I think of my love for you
    the wonder of its beauty takes my breath away.
    I cannot recall the moment in time it began,
    but only the overwhelming feeling of ecstasy it brought to me.

    For at that moment I knew happiness.
    A happiness I had never known before.
    For just the thought of you gave me joy beyond belief.

    The thought of being with you and being held by you was my one desire
    I knew once we first met none other would ever do,
    for I knew love.

    I knew love as I had never thought possible in this life time.
    It is a love of passion and desire.
    It is a never-ending need to you,
    for you, only you.

    When I think of my love for you
    I realize I now know the true meaning of love.
    I will love you as long as this life endures and beyond,
    for you are my dreams, my realities.
    You are my heart
    You are my meaning of true love. </i>

    I didn't write it, but it sums up my views perfectly.

    When I try to explain that concept to people around me I get 'Well, that never lasts! That fades! You are living in a fantasy world! Women stop liking to be touched and held! Get over it! You're so self-centered what with wanting your relationship to be 'more'! That simply isn't reality. Be lucky you have somebody who tolerates living with you!

    People who have never experienced it simply will NEVER understand it, C.

    Quite simply...they're wrong. They haven't found it yet, and if/when they do, it will never be "too much", let alone "enough". There are NO boundaries to what you want with that person.

    A good description of romantic love but aren't there several different types of love? Is there not "true" love for family,God,country,fellow man,etc.?

    Apparently it didn't last--can you do something to achieve it again?

    Yes..there are different definitions of love..but I think she not only talking about romantic love, but passionate love.

    I love my dogs.
    I love pizza with pineapple.

    But I love the woman I love with an insane amount of passion and desire.

    Shattered's guy is a very lucky man.

    That's what the thread is about.. Not "other" types of love.. I'm not asking for a textbook definition of it.. I asked what it is to each person here...

    I'm off to work, but will check back in for your response after.

    Not true - well, sorta. It never happened. Something which was never there of COURSE can't last...cuz it never existed. :(

    Not this time.
