What’s true love?

4 Comments

What is true love? It’s a question I’m asked a lot because I’m a romance author. That doesn’t put me into the category of an expert on the subject of love. Although I do read a lot about love and romance, it’s part of the job as a writer.

So, what is it? Some say that true love is a myth, what do you think? For me I’m a firm believer in this thing called true love. It’s a real thing. But true love is met by many skeptics. Here are few definitions of true love that I’ve found:

1: From the Bible (My favorite definition by the way)

1 Corinthians 13:4-7New International Version (NIV)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

2: Dictionary.com –

noun
a sweetheart; a truly loving or loved person.
3: Webster’s Dictionary-
True´love`
n. 1. One really beloved.
That’s only 3 of the many definitions you can find when you look it up. Does this define the words? Somewhere in between all of these definitions you’ll find the true meaning of love.
Here’s my feelings about it, so sit down and get ready. Remember before you read this that I’m an author of romance, so I warned you…
True love comes from deep inside your soul. It’s the purest, deepest kind of love that you can experience because as the words say, ‘true love’, it’s true, not just lust or infatuation. Your heart beats for someone else. It goes beyond those feelings you had in high school, beyond the fast beating heart, it’s the reason your heart beats. True love is more than words spoken, gifts given or even a look, it’s a feeling all of it’s own. Nothing compares to true love and I know this, because when you find your soulmate, true love, you’ll know it. Everything else that you’ve thought was love suddenly becomes untrue.
Remember I warned you, I’m a sap for true love. So, what’s your meaning of true love? Do you believe in it or are you a skeptic?
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…16302678259_653027e186_m

  1. Even though I’m writing about romance myself, I still can’t answer this question. If you find the answer, let me know!

    • As a romance writer we write about true love, and in life we search for it. For me, I found it with my hubby and I’ve never looked back. We finish each others thoughts and live for one another. In this lifetime I always hope that everyone finds it. Thanks for responding and good luck with the writing.

  2. I believe the closest we can ever come to true love is the sort of unconditional love we have for children and pets, all other relationships flux and change so could never really be classed as true, even the love for parents has periods where the love is well hidden behind conflict, think of those teenage years where you are convinced you know better and parents just want to ruin your life. I think relationships between couples are just like that ‘true love’ suggests that it can never let you down that it will remain unchanged and real life just doesn’t work that way.
