romantic love is a bitch. it blinds you and keeps you from seeing what is really going on. seriously there are as many if not more stories about love and its negative side than love and its possitive side.

if you can aviod it. that being said i just met someone about a month ago that i have talked to nearly everyday and who i really enjoy talking to.

1 Corinthians
Chapter 13
1 1 If I speak in human and angelic tongues 2 but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. 2 And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 3 Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, 5 it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, 6 it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. 7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 4 Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. 9 For we know partially and we prophesy partially, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. 12 At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. 13 5 So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more.

ooh-waa-aaaaaaaaaa-a-aaaaaaaa-aaahhhhhh-ohhhh-ohhh-oh-waahhhaaa
-aaa-aaa-ohh-unhhhhhhhh-ooh!

Now, that that's out of the way, love is a complex emotion. Love is a situation of willful vulnerability that is meant to add to your life. But it has the ability to be painful when someone you love can't show you that same love because they've been hurt before or they don't feel the same way you do.

When you do find someone who is willing to love you and be loved by you, it becomes work because you have to take into consideration that person's feelings when making decisions. This step is particularly difficult for independents and loners.

When it's kicking on all cylinders, love is beautiful. But it's something that two people have to constantly work on and improve because life is about change and adjusting to that change.

The thing is, it might take awhile to realize that something has to change, which can be painful.

An abstract and useless emotion that is never truly achieved, except in the minds of weaker and needing people. It's not real and can't be attained.

I am so sorry that you feel that way. But are you saying that I am weak and needy because I love?

Love is wonderful! It's an emotion that can be casual enough to make you go out of your way for something, or so deep that it can cloud your judgement and push you beyond the point of no return; that sounded rather cliche-ish It's so sweet! Love can be a secret desire of one or even shared between two. I agree with Nate that love is "abstract" in the sense that is cannot be tangibly felt, but disagree with everything else in his post. Even the strongest of the strong need love. And because of that, some would consider that a downfall; take Samson and Delilah for instance. But then again, that wasn't true love was it?
