Love is simply caring for other person's feeling and complete submission to other. It is having complete belief in other person.Love is something which cannot be described and only be felt and experienced.

"complete submission"

maybe you would like to re-phase?

submission?

How about some clarification then?

There are differnt kinds of love.  Not all kinds of love survive the "dissolution" of a romantic relationship.  phileo or brotherly/ sisterly love surely can.  Also the most supreme kind of love agape can.  But eros cannot.

The ideal relationship between a man and woman is where all three remain.  "Agape" and "Phileo" are best expressed in the covenant of marriage, where one chooses to love the other unconditionally past a host of irritations and human faults.  The marriage covenant also provides a place of safety where "eros" can thrive, since this type of love is by nature exclusive and will have no rivals.

Mind your wordforms, Stephanos.  Phileo is actually the verbform literally meaning "I love", the o-ending signaling the meaning "I", the rest of the word giving the meaning "love"

If it is the noun you want, it should be philia as in logophilia.
