Ok.. I'm feeling mildly soppy.. meaning I'll probably regret making this post and showing my occasional soppyness.

Consider this a game of defining the undefinable. I don't know if you can define it, but just to reply with "It's not something you can define" would be boring, and I may be forced to make a " tongue.gif " face at you. I don't like being mean, so don't do it! *ahems..*

So yeah.. go ahead, try and define love in any way you can, a poem, a statement, a definition, whatever.

If you're feeling sick just reading this post then.. sorry! But really.. it's christmas soon! Don't be all bah humbug... dry.gif .

if love is true, can it overcome all feats? can you really experience true love more than once in a lifetime? do you ever stop loving someone once you have truly loved them?

In short, no, yes, depends, according to me at least. I expect everyone would have different ideas on that, though. I think there can be things that get in the way of love that are out of someone's control - extreme long distance, for example - but it doesn't necessarily mean that the love isn't "true" if it can't overcome something. I thought that way for a while, but realized that there are some factors that affect our lives that can unfortunately get in the way.

Not sure I know what "true love" counts as, other than reciprocation. I find that concept a little odd. I think I would always have a tender spot for someone I loved, somewhere in me. But I definitely feel pretty differently towards a couple people I have loved, and while I still care about them, I wonder if "love" is the right word. It's a different kind of love, definitely.
