No, I don't _love_, but I have been known to love on occasion...
Peace.

Love is just another 4-letter word.

No mix of symbols or sounds could possibly describe the true feeling that "love" tries to describe.

And I would prefer not to trivialize that feeling with a word as misused as love.

Well, could you use the word "gravel", or perhaps "perhaps" to describe the feeling?
Peace.

Exactly, I agree with you completely. None of our experiences, actually, can be possibly described.. no matter what words you use, the person is a different person with different thoughts and experiences...

It is great though, when you come along someone that you identify with a lot. You end up looking at them and nodding and smiling, and just "knowing" that you are both thinking the same thing and experiencing the same thing, and all that... but, then again, you never truly know.. :grin:
Peace.

If you haven't already, you should read The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley. He gives an excellent explanation of why human language falls short of true communication.

Haven't read it, but I definitely will some day, thanks for mentioning.

love is a really great high, but it has a miserable comedown. i don't feel like revisiting that drug anytime soon.

I thought the feeling of love was trademarked by FTD, and experiencing it without purchasing flowers is a copyright violation? :grin:

most people confuse love with need. if you love someone because you need them you have not loved at all, but oyu have loved what they have given you. when you love another for who they are, whether they have given you or not, then you truely love them. remember love is without condition, without limitation, and without need. so i don't think most people haven't truely loved

The problem is that people get addicted to love just as they get addicted to security, sensation, and power.

I don't think so... Power is still power whether or not someone is addicted to it. Being secure in your own home is still security whether or not someone is addicted to that security.

The need for something and what it is that is "needed" are not the same thing, and you do or don't have to have the addiction to still experience the same thing..
Peace.

addiction is still a need in someones life. we all have to get past the illusion that we mix need with love.

Exactly. I was just saying that being addicted to the love that you experience does not mean that you aren't experiencing love.
