I guess to answer LP's comments, I can only say that I've always felt there is a difference in meaning between FALLING IN LOVE, BEING IN LOVE, and LOVE, as a separate stand-alone essential concept of Life. I've fallen and been in love many many times.  
So it's easy for me to love Humanity unconditionally, yet I know I've always set some conditional parameters within my personal relationships. Perhaps that's why I am without a mate, but am close to my teenage daughter, whom I truly love unconditionally? It's a sticky area for most, but I guess my bizarre mind doesn't interpret all these definitions of love as being in conflict with how I approach life from day-to-day.

Excellent reply Kacy . . .
I agree completely.
There is one that I love unconditionally and that is my son, Billy.
I love people in different ways as everyone has different functions in our lives.

Falling in Love is butterflies
Being In Love is intensity
Love - its purest form, is everlasting
and the hardest to achieve and keep alive

love is all circumstantial, within the circumstance, no one knows...

to tell you the truth, I could not. I won't try to define love in just one sentence. Or any sentence for that matter

I also think that true love is when you love someone unconditionally....in spite of what they do, or fail to do.

Look what I've built, it shines so beautifully now watch as it destroys me."

Love is entering a new reality and discovering new reasons for existence.

To earn respect, Give respect
To live life, nurture life
To enjoy Love, Share Love

Love is unconditional even through all leaps and bounds.

Love is also blind, deaf, and dumb; leading us into doors of understanding and walls of stupidity.

Love,

Love is...

the soft, warm enveloping of your emotions by a partner, like a goosedown comforter freshly pulled from the dryer.
