What is love?

Love is quite weird feeling. There are a lot of different things happening inside you when you fall in love. The body releases chemicals such as oxytocin, dopamine and adrenaline. So love acts like a drug. That is why when you fall in love it's like everything around you becomes less important. You can't focus on things as good as before and you feel like you would like to be with the person all the time.

I remember quite good when I was falling in love with my significant other. It was like there were small butterflies in my stomach. I could not stop smiling or thinking about him. And the only thing I wanted to do is to spend time with him..not doing anything special..just hanging around together. It was also quite tough time. The things were not as easy as they could have. There was a lot of different emotions involved and it made the situation really weird.

Now something has changed from those days. Because when you actually fall in love there are so much things going on in your body it's quite overwhelming. But eventually all those things will settle down and you find the longer term love, the connection between you two that keeps you together. The kind of connection that you will not have with anyone else than with him.

Love is a wonderful feeling. It makes you do many things, what you would have never imagined to do. You can stand through tough times and distance, still keeping those feelings alive inside of you. It requires a lot of work and time, but it's not a bad thing. It means more that you should remember to hold hands, kiss for good buy and good night, and to hug each other after a long day. It means you should spend some time together and make plans for the two of you. It means you should take time and go for a romantic weekend to somewhere and remind yourself why you love each other. This is the "work" that love requires you. But when you do it, it doesn't feel like working, it feels like sharing the life you have with another person.

Love is a powerful feeling but it doesn't stay the same. The feeling of love changes through time. All the things happening are effecting how the love between you evolves. It can, unfortunately, disappear through time, or in the best case, grow bigger. When you are in love with another person, it's quite hard to think about your life without your partner. Because just thinking that it could happen, makes you sad. But sometimes loving other person means, you have to be able to let go when your love isn't enough. To be able to thankful of the moments you have shared together, and the memories you have from the past.

Every one of us wants to be loved who we are..and all of us want to feel love towards another person. It's a really complicated situation. It means you have to open up your heart to someone who could so easily hurt you. And sometimes when other person doesn't appreciate you enough, you will get hurt. It's all so unfair and scary, but someday you will meet a person who doesn't want to hurt you, but love you and take care of you. I hope we all would find a person like that, and would not have to kiss so many frogs in the process.

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.  ~Bruce Lee

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. ~Dr. Seuss
