What love is: What love is NOT

Are you really sure about your definition of love? Or what does love means?
Probably you may have already known the definition of it. You might have look upon the dictionary or search the web for its literal meaning. But, what exactly does love means for people who practices the sense of increaseI'll give you my meaning of love as I already practice the philosophy of it. You might contradict some of the ideas I will present to you but, these ideas are more than enough for you to really understand what love really is.

What love is NOT
1. Feelings - should not be the basis for love because they are transient and passing. You can't have feelings for your loved one for the rest of your life that's a fact.
2. Sex - love is more than what sex can give such as commitment, patience, sacrifices, respect etc. Having sex with someone doesn't mean that you already express your love to him/her. Once again, this shouldn't be our basis for love.
3. Out of control - True love knows what is right, good and proper; it always seek for the good of the other.
4. Affection/Attractioncan die down and disappear, completely but true love lasts.
5. Blindbecause true love is reasonable it seems and understands what is right and good.
6. Falling in love We don't fall in love so as to not to fall out of love. We should "grow in love".

What love is
Love is a commitment, a responsive act of the will and decision (of the intellect) to care and aspire for the good and happiness of the loved ones.
Love is unselfish, because it often involves putting off one's immediate needs.
Love is unchanging, because it is not based on the whims of feelings, convenience or other circumstances.
Lastly, Love is unconditional because it does not demand something in return neither payment nor appreciation nor reward.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
Love never fails."
