I tend to agree. Love and lust get confusing for me, as well as trying to make yourself love someone or trying to make them love you.

But who really knows what love is anyway.

Well when you have a friend who has become more then a friend, but neither of you is in love...etc...

That sort of stuff,

confusing

I know exactly where you are coming from, Dr. - and yes, it's extremely confusing. Especially when that friend has been your best friend for 10 years. It makes for pretty interesting thoughts of the future in one's head.

I'm confused too. I'm always falling in love with my best friends' girlfriends. Why I do I want the wrong person everytime?!?

And I know where you're coming from, too SG . Although I believe that I do know what love is, it's just that I've yet to experience it's true romantic form.

The love I do know is that no matter what my friend does, where she goes or who she's with, whether she's sick or healthy, whether she's feeling down or on top of the world, I will always be there for her, supporting her in every way I can and doing my best to make sure she's happy. And I know she'd do the same for me.

That, to me, is love. Not romantic love maybe, but unconditional I-will-be-there-no-matter-what love.

Thanks to great books like "The Road Less Travelled", I now know what Love is.

Love is not the "puppy-dog, love at first sight, walking on the moon, damn I want me some of that, ohhhhhh she is so HOT" high that crosses my mind when I see an attractive woman.

That's lust. That's attraction. That's infatuation.

... dammit... Unfortunately that is not love.

Love is sacrifice.

It's hard to learn. At least for me.

------------------
My love for you
It's in the things I do and say
If I wanna live I gotta
Die to myself someday.
Surrender.

Love is blindness.

(And not just because of the U2 song, I've been there and seen it happen.)

I never experienced love until my fiance (I've never had any previous boyfriends or anything like that). For those of you who don't know, we met online over 4 years ago. We finally met in person earlier this year.

Though it can be risky meeting people from on the Internet at times, what was nice about this was that we were attracted to each other for all of the right reasons. We didn't spend 4 years talkin' to each other on the Net and the phone because we were physically attracted to each other...we talked because we truly cared about each other. We also learned so much about each other.

However, for the record, after meeting in person...I am also very physically attracted to him. But I do know that it's the real thing. Even knowing that it may be over a year before I see him again...that's fine...because I love him, and I know that when we are finally able to be together again that it will be worth the wait.

Gosh Diemen, you said it well..

I just happened to have married my best friend..So Paul now has become along with my kids, the focus of my life..

When you want to make the other person happy and put them ahead of yourself, well then that to me is true love..

I am quite lucky though, I still feel lust when I look at my husband, and attach that with the pure love that comes with it, then you got something spectacular.

Paul, when you read this, remember that Tuesday is garbage night next week..
