Love
    #958644 - 10/14/02 01:48 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Is there anything else more valuable?

It is highly spiritual, definitely philosophical, empirically valid, etc.

Live it.

Is there a difference between "being in love" and "thinking you're in love" ?

In the words of John Lennon: "All you need is love"



Love make the world beautiful.  If you find it, never let it go.  :smile:

Possibly only to Outsiders. When you 'Think' your in Love, you 'Are; for all intents and purposes...But Love has so many Levels, one can never be sure.

I'm sure most 'normal' People have experienced Love in at least 100 diffrent ways. Is it real each time? Only You can tell. - OoD

Well, you can 'think you are in love' with someone who doesn't love you- or doesn't even know it. I think love is only 'real' if it's an active two-way thing.

I've felt like I was in love with someone, but since it was only in one direction, I don't believe there was ever any real love. So, as you said, I'm an 'Outsider.' I can't speak for the 'normal people'

You love her, but she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win
And so it goes till the day you die
This thing they call love is gonna make you cry
I've had the blues, the reds, and the pinks
One thing's for sure
Love stinks

do you think you ca be "in love" with someone you have never met face to face??

I have always wondered about that. There are many levels in which to love someone as OoD pointed out...but can you fall in love with no actual physical contact?

Why not? I mean the only difference a physical preference makes is in the discernment of appearances (that and all the nasty things you can do on someone..)
People always say true love is about who you are, and not what you look like, so if you really know a person, and spend alot of time talking to them, why couldn't you say you love them?
Course there's a point where you have to eventually get with them face to face, or else it's just creepy... :wink:

See, now, I totally agree with you!
Most may think it silly, but it's quite easy to put the distractions of appearance out of the picture and when you do.....WOW!! There can be true connections....and as long as yu are always honest and real with the other person...then I believe it can happen...and be meaningful.

I think being a freak has made these things a bit more 'curious' to me. It would be nice to meet someone and not have to make excuses for my appearance :frown:
Course...I can just go back to hangin with only freaks...but that is so limiting. And my mottos are "honesty over diplomacy" and "never limit your life's experience...life is way to short"

Thank God I'm not the only one who feels that way, makes me feel much less creepy...  :laugh:
I worry bout myself sometimes because I always end up unable to stand the women I meet in bars and clubs, but falling more than I should for a girl on the net that I've never even seen. But maybe I've just managed to become slightly less shallow than most of the people that pick their relations based on the shape of a face or body. (though I still like to think of myself as a shallow and horny little slut..)
And you should never have to make excuses for your appearances, people can love ya for who and what you are, or they can obsess over their petty complexes and leave you to look for someone who can see a person beneath the surface..
Besides, freaks are always the most fun to spend your time with..... :wink:

Naw...you're not creepy...whorish maybe ...but NEVER creepy :wink:
Besides communication, intelligence are my 2 main concerns...cuz honestly...once your out of the bedroom..then what??

I'm with Marcus Argentarius ...

He says:

Love is not just a function of the eyes
Beautiful objects will, of course inspire
Possessive urges-you need not despise
Your taste. But when insatiable desire
Inflames you for a girl(or guy  :smile: ) who's out of fashion,
Lacking in glamour-plain, in fact-that fire
Is GENUINE;that's the authentic passion.
Beauty, though, any critic can admire.

Out of the bedroom?
Why would you ever want to leave the bedroom?
:grin:
Wish I had something as deep and meaningful I could quote to convey my agreement, but unless Velvet Acid Christ mixed it into a song, I've prolly never heard it :wink: and they never seem to approach lvoe much..
And I'm only not creepy to you cause you're as much a freak as I :wink:
I still do my best to instill just a small modicum of uncomfortableness in the normals....

hmmmm...i disagree. i have been single for going on 11 months now. and it's by choice. but i try my best to LOVE every one i meet. to me, love is the smile you give to a random stranger, love is helping someone you don't know....not because you want any benefit, but because you care. it's easy to help out someone you do know...and that's a form of love. but if you don't know someone, and you help them...even though you have no reason to whatsoever...to me, that's true sacrificial love. love is something you do...it's the pain and sacrifice you you go through for a person. not the sex, not the warm fuzzy feeling...it's the trials....it's not a nouns....it's a verb.
i'm not in a relationship and don't plan on getting into one ever...but you know, i have more love in my life than i know what to do with.
so i can be two sided but it doesn't HAVE to be.
but that's just my opinion. and not many people in this forum have ever agreed with my opinion. :grin:
peace.

Peace and Love to all!

from your vague post i assume you want our ideas on love:

love is a word for those feelings that result when a conscious/rational being has to explain why he feels attached to another person. love is sex sublimated. many other sentiments often masquerade as love: hate, pity, self-loathing, sexual desire, jealousy etc. all of these are excellent reasons to use the euphamism "love." the word "love" allows us to express feelings that when expressed rationally come off rather disturbing.

"i don't just like fucking you and having you prepare my meals, I LOVE YOU!!!"

"oh, you're so wonderful! you sketch a figure of my ideal! I LOVE YOU!"

"You're so pathetic and weak, i'd really like to kill you, but i can't admit that to myself so i'll swing to the other end of the spectrum and say I LOVE YOU!!"

isn't love great!!?!? you can sweep almost any shameful sentiment under the rug with the bugs with three simple words: I LUV YOU!!!

That's why I rarely say those three words.
I never use those words lightly.

There are lots of levels of love.
love for you family
love for you pets
love for you country
love for you "partner"
love for nature
you can even love hate.

Everyone has different aspects and views of love. Some are just destined not to feel all of them.

i agree with what you said. love is compassion for every living creature on this earth, if you need the "other" to love you back then you got insecurities, fears, etc. hiding in your heart. your love is not dependt on your lover.

Please come back and post. I enjoy your sig line.

I suppose it is possible to fall in love without physical contact. My great-grand parents married without having kissed each other before the wedding ceremony was over.

Cheers,
