The title says it all!

Or maybe love at first sight?

I'm not too sure :\ Theres this girl in my school who im pretty good friends with and i really like her (im not sure if i can call it love but its not much of attaction, its not like I get boners over her ^^".) another problem is though we are really good friends I annoy her shouting "eerrr" which results in her hitting me somtimes(she knows im joking) and sometimes I do it a bit too much just to get closer to her... but im afriad if i tell her i like her she will think i've been perving on her all this time :\

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone?

Do you belive in love?

I would worry rather a lot about someone who didn't believe in love in any way, shape or form. That would have to be one fractured psyche. Love at first sight, however, is another thing altogether.

Oo, I really like how you put that. Because it's very true.
I believe in love. Possibly love at first sight.
I'm in love :3

Love, like hate, is a very powerful word to use. Love can do alot of things, and there are as well many forms of emotions that *fake* love, an example of this would be infatuation, or lust. Im not claiming i know love, but what i do know, is what the consequences are for throwing that word around...

What is love? I don't think anybody really knows. Love can most be described and related to with family. The bond you share with your parents, best friends, close relatives...that whenever you fight or as much as you hate one another at some time, you'll get along later. They're the people you can most definately go to for anything, for whatever problem, and you can talk to them and be open with them. Before even LOVING THEM, you will become the bestest of friends, understanding and enjoying each others hobbies and interests.The feeling you get when you do these things, can most likely be described as acts of love, or even care for one another.

The thing with the word *love* is that it's thrown around ALOT nowadays, so it has alot of misconceptions. However, the morals of it remain the same.
If you ever decide that at a young age, you meet someone and like them so much they're just like *hey i love you lets get married when were older* and you get really excited over hearing that, then it's not love, that's infatuation. And the really harsh factor with that is that the relationship usually ends up with but loads of drama, beleive me i would know...

Somebody once told me that when you see or meet someone that you just have this aching feeling in your body that it's the one, then it's the one. My dad told me that, and thats actually how he met my mom, he saw her, and said he just knew from the feeling he got. My mom actually WAS dating another guy by the time they were together, so it kind of makes me beleive it even more.

So basically, just wait for the oppurtunity to arise. It will most likely be there...it may not be tomorow, it may not be next month, or year, but it will, and that's what i beleive at least...

Yes I am currently in love with someone.
What i think is love is quite weird because my idea of it changed alot in the last few months i did say the word alot but now after being in a long relationship i know what i believe it is now :> explaining my emotion is quite difficult.
I dont actually believe in love at first site i think you can fancie and have a crush on them at first but not till you actually get to know them you can "love them"

The kind of "love" I most believe in is the "love" you feel for blood relations. I have yet to actually experience "love" for another person, outside of family love. I have had quite a few crushs though. The one I decided to go for though, didn't exactly go too well.

Love differs. Love can hurt, love can heal, love can interrupt, love can guide, love can cause regret, love can cause joy. So many things, but to me, love can cause blindness. Love has blinded me before, but... It was nice being blinded by love. In saying that, who knows what love truly feels, as it affects people differently.

That isn't love, that is infatuation.

I believe in love after a fashion. I believe in the love between members of a family, though of course those feelings of attachment are programmed by our brain before we even meet them. I'm not so sure about the sort of love that the rest of you are referring to, but I guess infatuation that strong can exist, I just haven't experienced it.

Yeah I believe in love, and true love.
There is always going to be someone a person gets along with better than anyone in the world, but the idea of a soulmate and that everybody finds theirs is ridiculous.

Love is when the Titanic is sinking, and you and your boyfriend are cast out into the open ocean together. The two of you cling desperately to a piece of wreckage to try and survive, but then the cold sets in and it becomes apparent that the wreckage will only support one of you. Your lover sacrifices himself to the waves to give you a chance. That is love, by defintion.

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone? I have and do.

Do you belive in love? Yes.

What do you think is love? A verb, a noun. Something with a lot of meaning and no true definition.

Do you belive in love at first sight? No. This isn't the Renaissance.

Ever "loved" anyone?
Yes, I do right now, and I always will

Do you belive in love?
No duh. >_>

What do you think is love?
A mix of Obsession, caring, and other feelings

Do you belive in love at first sight?
Nope, not true love anyways. Lust, yes, though.

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone?
Well, I can't feel some emotions. The kind of love you state, I never felt it, and can never feel it nor understand it fully.

Do you believe in love?
I haven't felt it, but I can somewhat imitate it in writings. If I can do that, then it exists, and I'm not writing some feeling that I made up.

What do you think is love?
Love is lust. That's all there is to do with it. If you are able to become good friends with them during your lusting, then you have something stronger, at least. Best description? No. I'm probably saying things unrelated to this, but I do not understand it completely.

Do you belive in love at first sight?
No. To get 'love', you have to work at it. I believe in lust at first sight, but true love, is something that I have no way to explain. I don't understand it, so I can't say it. Unfortunate, but unavoidable.

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone?

Hm. Love. This is very complex, as you can think you love someone, but you actually have only strong feelings for them. I myself do not think that I love anyone outside my family =P, but I do have very strong feelings for someone. ;)

Do you believe in love?
Of course. Love is very possible, just...hard to acquire, if I may. I believe that if someone reaches a click in a person, they are in love. Very hard to explain XD


What do you think is love?
Love is...hard to explain. Love is the rush of mixed emotions you feel for people. As Dr. Seuss puts it, "You know your in love when reality becomes better than your dreams." Very well put, I might add.

Do you belive in love at first sight?
No. You may think you love someone at first sight, but you are not. You are simply attracted to them. Like bees to nectar. You need to work your way to the person's heart and soul, you cannot simply love them. As I said, love is very complex.

These are VERY interesting questions. I like them. =)

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone? - Yes, I have
Do you believe in love? - Yes, I do.
What do you think is love? - A complex emotion, sometimes in paradox(depending on the situation) that is felt by one individual towards another. Many people have different definitions for the emotion, so no solid definition is thus built.
Do you believe in love at first sight? - I have mixed feelings about this. I can't reach a solid answer. I guess I do, but I don't at the same time. It really depends.

I saw love, and ran straight here, dying to throw my opinion in.

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone?
Yes, besides my best friends, I've in what is my own definition of the word, two people.

Do you believe in love?
Always will, now and forever ♥.

What do you think is love?
The person you long to be with, spend each and every day. The one you smile every time you see. The person who makes you a better person in turn.

Do you believe in love at first sight?
At times, yes. But I believe that you may be attracted to someone, but you won't know it's love at first sight without knowing their personality.

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone?
I have loved, but as of yet, have never been in love.

Do you belive in love?
To a degree, yes. But I can live with it or without it, although I will probably revoke that when I eventually do fall in love. ;)

What do you think is love?
I believe that love is a word we tag on to our primitive lust in order to create a little thing called "romance". I also believe that people fall in live due to chemical reactions that attract us specifically to others with corresponding reactions taking place within their bodies, or something like that.

Do you belive in love at first sight?
Of course not. Love develops over time. The thing you get at first sight is a lust for the surface appearance of the target. True love is based on how two people fit together and work as a pair, both mentally and physically. 'First sight' is just lust. Nothing more.

And while on this thread, should anyone mention the word "soulmate", I will beat them to within an inch of their lives, and then use that remaining inch in explaining why the concept of a soulmate is so flawed. You have been warned.

You asked for it. (As soon as I saw that you had posted, I knew that you would ask for it... :D)

Think about the world. The whole world, and how many people are on that world.

As of this very day, there are 6,805,900,000 walking the face of our planet.

Imagine every single one of them. Now think; if there was one person on this world specifically designed for you, would you be able to find them in a crowd of 6,805,900,000 people?

I think not.

And even if, from those 6,805,900,000 people on earth, you thought you had found your soulmate, do you really think that that one person, out of 6,805,900,000 is going to be found in your workplace/hometown/country? Out of 6,805,900,000, you really think you've found the single person specifically designed for you?

Well, that'd be a mighty fine coincidence. Please, send me some form of proof. And then, perhaps then, I shall believe.

...

And resume normal conversation. :D

I do believe in love, and I think it happens more than some people are willing to admit. I love my family, friends and hobbies.

Do you believe in love?
Of course.

What do you think is love?
Love is a feeling of immense affection.

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Not at all. I believe in lust at first sight, but that's about as far as it goes. Love is something that takes time to build, and I don't think you can love something unless you know it.

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone?
Other than family, I don't think so. I do, however, think I do when I get the feeling I would do anything for some girls, but I think that's just the kind of person I am.
Do you believe in love?
Of course, who wouldn't? At most you could only say you haven't experienced it yet.
What do you think is love?
Caring for someone so much there would be hell for anyone who made them cry, willing to do anything for them (Morally), and being able to trust them and care for them.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
No, I believe you can think you love someone but I believe that once you hear someone's attitude and if it's a turn off in the end they actually look less appealing you you.

You deserve better than that. There are plenty of nice, good people out there looking for love; you don't need to get it from jerks. You'll find the right person someday, there's no need to rush.

I really only loved family and very close friends who are like family. I never had a serious relationship so I haven't been in love :3

Well everyone loves something so of course!
What do you think is love?
Loving someone, no matter what their flaws are. Going to the end of the world for them and causing hell to anyone who dares to screw with them.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Kind of, it depends. You look at someone and you might get this feeling that "hey this is the person for my life." or something among those lines.

So what do you guys think? Ever "loved" anyone?
Yes. I have in the past and I do presently.

Do you belive in love?
Of course I do. In many shapes and forms.

What do you think is love?
The definition of love is individual to one's experience. Some people may despise the idea of love because of a bad experience and label it as a bad thing. Others may have had many good experiences and believe it's the most wonderful thing in the world. And then there are people who haven't experienced yet so their view of love can be distorted and almost overrated [this is me speaking from listening to my different friends talk about btw :P]
But that's just the black and white, there's many shades of grey in between those groups, I do realise that.
I, myself, believe it's just a great affection, trust and companionship between yourself and another. A mutual understanding and acceptance of another person, but of the sort that goes beyond friendship.

Do you belive in love at first sight?
I don't really think so. An intense attraction maybe, but Love should be deeper than skin deep.

Love at first sight is always based on physical appearance. You can lie and say it's not, but how are you falling in love with someone if they haven't even spoken a word yet?

I believe in love, but not love at first sight. Personality is always involved for me.

I fancy someone in my class ^^ but he doesn`t fancy me )X but on the internet I have a boyfriend.
You have a boyfriend but you want to date someone else? God. There's some messed up people out there.

I believe in love.
I think I've only truly experienced it in the context that I love my family, and I love my friends.
I love my boyfriend.

However, I don't feel like I've ever TRULY loved in the context of "intamacy."

I've never truly felt like I could share every aspect of myself with someone.

Love at first sight? That's not possible. It's merely attraction.
You can't truly love someone without even knowing one thing about them outside of their appearence.
