What is love? Thousands and thousands of philosophers spent plenty of time on this subject, but none of them managed to give an acceptable response. Words appeared to be too primitive to explane this unique feeling.
What I can say exactly is that every person understands the meaning of love in his or her individual way. And it is silly to generalize any of these meanings! For example the way I understand the role of love in my life is very original; however, anybody can say the same. By the way I don’t believe in any tests in magazines because of their dull generalization. We’re all different, our feelings are different, they can’t be put in any restrictions.
I remember somebody once said that people call “LOVE” two absolutely different feelings. Tears into a pillow, jealousy, conflicts – all that means “I want you belong only to me”. But the right meaning of love is “I want you to be happy”! And if you think like that, there is really no difference, whether you are together with your beloved or not. It is painful, oh yes! But such love is light.
