love is when someone really likes the other person and wants to take it up another notch. Love is also a comittment with another person. Love can also be when you really like someone because of what is inside not out. If you really love someone stay together forever.

Love is when another girl gets the guy you really like but you still can’t think badly of him. Love can be horrible, despite what they say in the movies.

Love is having your boyfriend accidentally delete all your music off your mp3 player after and having to spend the next few weeks getting it all back and without killing him.
Love is falling for someone, you hit the ground hard. Upon getting up you discover that you are unhurt!

Love is when nothing else in the world can matter more than than that person’s happiness. Love is when there are no awkward silences, just perfect ones. Love is when you can’t stop talking about someone no matter how annoyed people get. Love is not caring what others think.

Love is when you give someone your heart, your entire heart, and hope that they don’t break.
But when they do, it can’t be fixed.

Love is falling in love with someone even when no one around you believes in your relationship. Love is going against all odds, just to make things work. Only true love is perpetual and can outlast and withstand anything. Nothing at all can destroy true love.

Love is that feeling you get when you look at that special person in your life and you feel as if you could spend the rest of your life in their arms.
Love is waking up next to the same guy every day, and though he looks aweful and his mouth smells even worse, there’s no one else you’d rather wake up next to..

todays love it realy pointless,
i mean but that people often go by how the look or what possessions they have.
it should be about personality, but most people forget about that.
for me, love or romance is not for me.

love is when you accept them for who they are, when you love them unconditionally and even after everything bad you’ve both gone through you can still look at them and know that you wouldn’t change a thing

We all want to fall in love. Why?
Because that experience makes us feel completely alive.
Where every sense is heightened,
every emotion is magnified,
our everyday reality is shattered
and we are flying into the heavens.
It may only last a moment, an hour, an afternoon.
But that doesn’t diminish its value.
Because we are left with memories
that we treasure for the rest of our lives.
