Using HausofKubrick's signature thread title formatting for at least the second time, but what else am I gonna call this thread, "Love"? sleep.gif

I've been wanting to create this cheesefest of a thread on Valentine's Day but ok. Do you believe in love? What is love to you? Have you ever been in love?

I've had a rocky relationship with my current boyfriend, we have been off and on, but I would say I love him now and we really care for each other. Love isn't just to relationships, I truly love some of my closest friends and family.

I never really believed that I would be in love with anyone until my current relationship, I resigned myself to a possible life of loneliness after I previously hadn't been in a relationship since I was 14 (and that was an utter mess) and didn't particularly care about finding a partner, when I already had people I cared about surrounding me and things like academic studies to focus on. It just naturally happened. But yeah, you definitely feel different about it once you feel like you're in love from my own experience. It is hard to pinpoint exactly what love is but I guess for me it's caring about another person a hell of a lot (like, where their happiness is as essential as your own) and being able to answer "yes" to "do you want to spend the rest of your life together with this person?". These are of course my thoughts on romantic love, I feel a different type of love towards other people I care about like my family members. Just... people you cherish and that bring so much happiness to your days.

Will probably sound incredibly sad but the one (non-immediate family HUMAN) i've felt true, true love for is.. my dog. The love I have for him outweighs pretty much every other living thing on the planet and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'll never find a human I love more than Woody and if I do eventually meet Mr Right I hope I love him half as much as the love I have for my dog. The feelings I have for him are indescribable, but in short I would do ANYTHING for him lmao. blush.gif

I used to kinda just think that love was essentially this incredible butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling that you pretty much have regularly when "in love" with someone - and I have definitely experienced this, but in the past few years I've begun to see that it can really be so much more than that - if you want it to be. My original belief seems a bit naive now and when I describe it, sounds more like a crush really. Jade put it really well (what else is new lol x) about how it's to do with really caring about the other person and being in a place where their happiness is your own. And sure, butterflies too. Lots of butterflies.

I was thinking about this the other day actually, in the sense of my friendships in particular. My best friends have been my rocks this year and I don't think they realise just how much they've helped me through stuff or how much I love them as believe it or not I'm not really one for talking about my feelings (that's why they tend to spill out online more oops). Except for Lotti, I had never had friends that I felt that kind of love for before, any other friendships were kinda temporary- of course I didn't think that at the time but I never felt I could rely on them or open up to them the way I have with my closest friends now, those are the sort of friends you make through school really - you're friends out of necessity almost rather than because you want each other in your lives. I think that's how you know when you love someone in whatever capacity, at least for me anyway, when you can't imagine your life without them and don't ever want to consider that as a possibility. I actually feel that way about a few of you guys, if i'm honest (I'm sure you know who you are). I've never felt that kind of mutual "in love" feeling since my only proper relationship was wayyyyy more one-sided as it turned out but anyone I have had strong feelings for, its usually come off the back of just wanting them in my life so I guess there's not SO much of a difference between romantic love and all the other kinds, at least not for me.

Right now I'm just focusing on giving love to everyone. My two brothers have always been the two I give/receive love from the most and I can't see that ever changing. I'm also trying to be more loving to myself because I realized I was depending too much on others when it came to love that I wasn't even willing to give to myself. To use a cliche, I'm trying to fill my own cup first so I have enough to spread around ~

Actually I'm really fascinated with the five love languages, and learning about those reeeeeally opened my mind on how to give and receive from others, and how we're all different in that regard. I'm most "fluent" in quality time for example.

(i had to)

I think the biggest change in terms of love is finding that within myself. I've just learned to be grateful for who I am and to keep loving and taking care of myself and that has seeped into the love that I have for my family and friends. The most important thing is that you love yourself and who you are as a person.

yeah only Iíve found out that this sort of feeling I get isnít always ďaccurateĒ for me (I expect itís because of my depression and psych episodes and my mind kinda clings on to the nearest spark of happiness or whatevs) but I doubt this sort of thing would be good for me or anyone else in the grand scheme of things in fact it might make things worse with all the extra thoughts and responsibilities required etc.

Thank you for posting about this, I've been meaning to bring this discussion to the table before ohmy.gif I've looked into the five love languages in the not-too-distant past (and I'm even subscribed to an e-mailing list apparently, I think I get mail from that same site you linked) and after taking a test, it said my top one is quality time too! I would say that would've been pretty obvious even without a test.

The one I value least is probably the 'acts of service' one. While I don't mind doing favours and stuff sometimes, I don't particularly give love that way and don't really need others running around doing stuff for me either haha.

Hmm, it's tricky I have been in a relationship before where I did love him at the time but do I now... to be blunt no not really. However, I have love for my family and friends and most importantly I love my pet dogs. I do hope I find a partner I will love again but in time hopefully, that will come not going to try and force that.

I've never felt anything resembling romantic love or attraction. Don't think I will to be honest.

Much love for my family and especially my parents though.
