I wanted to come up with some question, but I can't seem to word it right. A lot of the songs are good for love....

but I guess I'll just leave it really open ended

what songs do you most associate with love
or exemplify love the best?
I'll stick with U2 songs. What I like about many of U2's "relationship" songs is that they sound like it is between people, but they really are about God.

As for love songs, All I Want Is You has some mighty fine statements on sacrificial love:

You say you'll give me eyes in the moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest.
All the promises we make, from the cradle to the grave
When all I need is you.

Do you write love letters to your wife? I hope that's not too personal, if it is just say so

It seems like there are few people that a person can really conceivebly be in a loving relationship. Though I also feel that you can love anyone if you want to, it is very rare to find two people who want the same thing.


I guess I wonder how much of it is finding someone who is capable of having the right qualities. Or is it finding someone who already does have those qualities. Or is it more just finding someone who you can get along wiht, and, if you're lucky, those qualities will develope for you over time.


Eh, I think I confused myself a little
but I hope you can figure out what I mean, a little....

Not too personal at all - at least you didn't ask me to publish them


When we were dating, I wrote silly poems and stuff for her. I'm sure she still has it.

Being a man of few words (though you wouldn't know it by my post count), I haven't written classic love letters. I usually leave little notes.

I like to give her a card at random times for no reason. I also like sneaking cards into her suitcase when she travels.

Around Valentines day, I've purchased a box of kid's valentines (designed for classroom distribution), write different things on each one and hide them throughout the house. I've got to be more careful with this now as we have kids who can read - if you know what I mean

I can be a little devil with the notes & cards as well.

Sometimes I will hide the card where I know she will find it in front of her friends. I save the sexy cards for those situations

Hello nbcrusader and congratulations on your anniversary.

A little background: I have found and married the man of my dreams. I've been married five years and am counting on a lifetime together. We are both members of a Unitarian Universalist church and am thankful we both see eye-to-eye where it concerns our spirituality (he is Taoist - whose philosophies I espouse for myself). It is such a balm to be with him.

My concern is that he loves me unconditionally, he has said as much. However, I have difficulty in saying the same for him (I'm working it out nicely though). Maybe it's because I'm a woman and am "entitled" to psycho moods. (-jk) Dunno? Anywho, I do love, respect, admire, support, nurture, and even lust after him (and so much more!). I feel so fortunate to be mated with him. (Sorry if this is getting a bit "soppy".)

Can you honestly say that you love your wife unconditionally or are there conditions to your love?

Hi nbc - congrats on your anniversary and for getting a prime GA spot! When I was waiting (in vain) to get a glimpse of a band member before the opening show, I started to feel weird, like it was bordering on idolatry, so I left after about an hour and half (they didn't show up anyway). I'm not a Christian but I do have a serious spiritual practice to which I'm very devoted and which cautions against idolatry much as the Bible does. As a Christian, did you have any feelings like that? I felt pretty certain that I could make the separation between being a normal fan wanting to see a great person and idolizing someone, and I'm not saying I wouldn't do it again, but it all still felt kinda weird to me.
