Does love really exist or is it just a fairy tale told to us by those  who forget. Forget that we will one day grow up and learn the truth and we be wondering why people be layin on the couch talkin to Dr. Ruth. Theyíre not crazy just confused. Confused about this whole love thang and how well a fictional word can be used. If you canít define a word than how can it be real. I know itís not something you define itís something you feel. Is it a real emotion or a thought in a head. I think itís something they make up to make life a little better before we end up dead. But did anyone contemplate the downside to this thought. Like what if you donít find love then all your hope is lost. You are left as an empty shell of a soul. Waiting for the day when you become old. Instead of living life to the fullest when youíre a young cat. You have no fun, zero,zilch,none your life is flat. What if love ruins your existence? Will your family have patience? Will they be able to forgive the emotion that took away their child. Now howís that for having a love style. So before you say a word that may mean nothing. Do some research and inform me if it means something.

 So says the reaper let it be done.
For those who do not understand will always fear.

Mario here are my beliefs in love.  You may not agree and geez it's kind of hard to give you visible proof on this one! LOL
But, if you love someone either a friend or a lover, or family, it is because you have things in common, understand each other, you are good for them, and they for you, they give you strength, wisdom, ideas etc to make YOU a better person.  You need to be in touch with them, or you feel something is missing in your life.  That is my determination of love.  I won't say the romantic stuff like you can't live without them etc. Cos you can and do.  But they help make your life better and fuller.  
I liken it to being safely ensconed in your father's arms, you know that feeling?  Well you kind of feel like that when you are with someone you love.
Having these special people in your lives give it more purpose, some joy, a reason to get up in the morning other than just having to go to work etc.
Love is the foundation of peace in life, we do need it, and it sweetens life so.  
I've learnt in my life, as an adoptee and only child, to take the love that is offered, you soon realise the ones who mean it, and those just being polite or whatever.
It helps to know there are people in my case, all over the world who genuinely love me and care for me.  
Although I may have no one to hug at certain times I do know I am loved and not as alone as I sometimes feel.
How's that for you?

 Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely.
(Sovereign of the Spirit)

I have often wandered on the same mental path that you are on.  Does love really exist. Yes.  It exist insofar as you want it to. My question to you is do you want love to exist.?  If you do then it does.  I think it is that simple.  I also want to know what it is.  I think it is like enlightenment.  You can strive for it however, when you actually attain it you can't really tell anyone what it's like because in doing so you destroy it.

Oh well.  Love can exist even if you do not "find it" as defined or undefined by you.  

SEE peace
