    Love should be unconditional.

    Well...if you want to be loved, learn how to love.
    This is an unconditional feeling that expect nothing in return.

    To have someone to love you is to give your love to someone first.
    Give love first and love will be return.

    How can an individual expresses love and compassion to fellow
    human beings?

    Can you express true love when you cannot rise above self-
    centered attachments and desires?

    Is it true that true love is the love that is totally committed
    to the welfare of the other?

    Is it true that it is difficult for us to overcome the tendency
    of self-centeredness or favouritism for one's own?

    Can we argue that ideal love is true love and is rare in the
    world because such love requires the foundation of
    integrity, truthfulness and unity with the Creator?

    Is here any differences between human love and divine love?
    In fact more can be discussed on different views like love for
    the nation, love for and in the family, love for children,
    our spouse, true love for our neighbours and so on.

    Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who
    loves is born of God and knows God.
    He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.

    "This is a good test of whether an emotion is godly
    love or ordinary love. Godly love is all-embracing, while ordinary
    love focuses on one object exclusively, thereby inciting jealousy.
    Godly love seeks to benefit others, while ordinary love is tinged
    with selfish desire". - Sun Myung Moon

    For most of us we have to learn to give our love first instead
    of asking or expecting others to love us. Give love to our nation
    first, our nation will in return love us.

    Agree, give love first but you cannot expect, let alone force anyone to return the love you give. If love is returned than it's good for you. If not, so be it and carry on with your life.

    Well... matters of love can never be explained in words... if love is so simple, life wouldn't be so interesting, it would be like taking a photo with the most expensive slr....... with the lens cap on.

    i have loved, and i have been loved.
    being loved definitely beats the former.

    and since somewhere b/w the age of 18 and now,
    i have made a pledge that i shall love only those whom have expressed/given their love to me.
    else, forget it.

    Taken from the Sandman Series.... By Neil Gaiman:

    Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up these defenses, you build this whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They do something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own any more. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination, not just in the mind. It's a soul hurt, a body hurt... gets inside you and rips you apart pain.

    Love is an emotion indeed.
    Can we argue that true love comes only from a sincere heart?

    Ha, you watch on TV, the mother bird feeding and
    protecting her babies in the nest.
    Many such examples are also found in most
    living things. I like watching Earth Vision to learn about loving
    and survival essentials.

    H'mm for me I would love someone first rather than waiting
    for someone to love you. Just sharing my thoughts, here
    something I learn when I was in Primary school.

    Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is
    not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is
    not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but
    rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things,
    hopes all things, endures all things.


    Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for
    tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For
    our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect;
    but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.

    When I was a child, I spoke like a child,
    I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man,
    I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly,
    but then face to face.

    Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully,
    even as I have been fully understood. So faith, hope,
    love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

    Ah, remember we love our mother and father because they
    first love us. What happens when the children loves their
    parents and the parents still don't return the love of
    their children? Learn to love first.

    If in a relationship.........

    and the love is not both ways....

    Whats the pt of calling it a relationship??

    Cool

    Sometimes love just ain't enough for some people..

    Some people can only be loved in the way that they want..
    Not in the way you would love them...

    That is how kids start out sometimes... some kids think it is great to have a parent shower them with gifts and lots of attention..
    and others would rather their parents left them alone...
    others would rather their parents showed them concern with some nagging than to be left alone.

    In the end... not all kids realise they are loved...but they are..
    in different ways.

    If you loved someone in the way they wanted to be loved, and they loved you likewise... then it is bliss...

    but not everyone has that choice for every moment in time..
