What Does True Love Mean To You?

What Does True Love Mean To You?I plan to do a post towards the end of the month about what true love means to me. I was thinking that it would be fun to see what love means to everyone else as well.
Love means so many different things to so many different people, so I would like to pose this question:
What does true love mean to you?
I plan to put together a post (or 2 depending on how many people respond) of everyone's thoughts on this.
I am looking for a paragraph or two detailing your thoughts on this. You can leave it in the comments section, or you can email me.
Please include your response, your name (or a name you would like to be referred to by), your blog link and your Twitter @ name.
If you wish to remain anonymous, that's fine, just let me know in your comment or email.
If you don't have a blog, or don't wish to include it, that's ok too, but you may as well get some free publicity!
Your Twitter name is just so I can let you know when it's live and won't be published on the blog unless you use it as your name.
Please get any submissions to me by midnight on Sunday 20th September.
I look forward to reading everyone's thoughts!

  1. I used to not believe that true love existed, and that there was only lust. I have changed my idea as I have gotten older. I think that the love for your husband/wife can be true. It feels like the world would end without them, and that they would do anything for you no matter what it is. Someone that can sweep you off your feet, someone that you can tell anything to, and be yourself with. If you can find someone to accept you and all your issues, then they are a keeper. :) Now true love with your children is another issue entirely. It is a different type of love, one that never ends, one where you would do anything for your kids no matter what, a love that is so sweet and serious but loving and fun all at the same time. The love where you cry if they are hurt and are mad if someone tries to hurt them. A love where you would take their pain for them, or die for them. I think you can love your siblings and parents like that too, one where the love will never end no matter what and you would do anything for them. And your pets too. We love them just like we do our family because they are family too. :) I hope this helps. :)

  2. I think true love is mostly about being yourself, about feeling like you belong but feeling free at the same time. It's someone that makes you laugh every day and that gets your silly jokes. Someone that shares your lowest times, but also inspires you to be better than you could have imagined. You know...like chocolate...but a person :)

  3. To me love is when someone can put up with you indefinitely, faults and all. Someone who still wants to spend time with you after they've heard all your stories and jokes. Someone you can't wait to tell when something good, bad or funny happens to you. Someone you can't picture living without. Someone worth fighting through the hard times for.

  4. True love is the love I have for my children. my definition of True love is that undefinable and overwhelming love that I feel for my children and I know it will never go away. When it comes to romantic love, I'm a bit jaded and don't really put a lot of stock in it so the term True love doesn't sit right with me. But if I was to believe in romantic love being true, I prefer real love, or genuine love. It doesn't sound as catchy as true love but it sounds more real, at least to me, and real love is accepting the other person completely, and they accept you, flaws and all. Being with a person who brings out the very best in you and you bring out the best in that person, is something that happens naturally. That person becomes your best friend, your biggest fan, and your equal. You "get" each other. That's what I'll be looking for when I am ready to put myself back out there anyway.

  5. Gorgeous idea, true love is unconditional, it's a love that grows freely and daily-and overcomes adversity/ obstacles, I feel that with my husband, Peter (he is the ying to my yang) and of course kids- true love shouldn't be restricted to sexual love only, it can apply to your family. What a lovely idea x

    1. Thank you :) I hadn't thought of it extending to non-sexual relationships before reading other people's thoughts! x

  6. True love for me that feeling that you cannot bear to be apart from that person. That you are a part of them and they are a part of you. I feel that love for my children, I felt it from the moment they were born. I feel it for my husband too, I think I am lucky that I married my best friend, my one true soul mate and so he is a part of me too. Whether it is my husband or my children there is no pretence, they know me and I know them. Love can be blind but true love is seeing someone with your eyes wide open. x

  7. For me, true love is being accepted for who you truly are, and being able to do the same for the person - or people - in your life that you truly love. This applies not only to your partner but your family and friends. True love is seeing who one another really is, behind all of the facades that we all inevitably put up, and accepting and forgiving the mistakes that that person makes.

  9. If we are talking about love for partners true love to me is not having to pretend with someone. You can can be you and not fear being judged and know your crazy idiosyncrasies are accepted . True love is having a lover (which some may not agree but I do think sex is a reasonable part of a successful relationship!) and a best friend, someone you would do anything for and someone you can trust and rely on completely. xx

  10. After having 3 serious relationships i can now see what true love really is. love is being kind, patient, understanding, overlooking one another's faults, wanting to spend time together, missing one another when your apart for a long time, caring for one another when you are sick. True love is my husband who has never said something to hurt or upset me, never beat me or caused emotional suffering. He is my true love.

  11. My Honest opinion will be as simple and clear as Angela Milnes put it in words... I also believe that true love grow with time and it gets stronger as you get older... True love is support each other thru good and bad, it not only being a couple but also being partners, best friends, great companions.

  12. True Love isn't words, but it isn't actions either. It is about motivation. Its about selflessness and sacrifice. True love is looking at somebody and realizing that there is nothing that you wouldn't do to make this person happy. True love is when you realize that your happiness is now tied to how this person feels.Its not an emotion, it's a transformation. It's the moment you look at your child for the first time. Its when you look at the person you are with and realize everything is different now.

  13. True love is about committing each day to loving that person, putting them first and then, waking up the next day and doing it all again. Whatever the circumstances. Lovely idea for a series. Hope it goes well
