Anyway, some parts of the book made me think of something: love or true love. What is true love?
I tried googling the question. Here are the things I find:
1. This one is shocking: Learn How to Understand Men - And Beat Them at Their Own Game. EEEHHHHHH??????????? Beat men at their own game? It only works if the women think that it's a game. Crazy world indeed.
2. Love is best seen as devotion and action, not an emotion. Love is not exclusively based on how we feel. Certainly our emotions are involved, but they cannot be our only criteria for love. True devotion will always lead to action - true love.
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with ACTIONS and in truth.

3. But than what does real love look and feel like? Maybe it’s when two people seem to know each other for ages and even in their previous lives. They can go on talking and talking and conversation never lacks topics and never gets dull. Or people don’t have to say anything because they understand each other without words. And those moments, minutes and even hours of silence are never uncomfortable. True love is when partners complete one another, when they’re together it’s peaceful, the whole other world with it’s sufferings and problems doesn’t exist and nothing even matters.
True love means understanding. One trusts another more than him/herself and feels ready to satisfy every little need of a partner. Two people don’t stop for a second looking into each other eyes. Taken from this site: True Love.
This is what I found in Mitch Albom's "The 5 People You Meet in Heaven":
People say they "find" love, as it if were an object hidden by a rock. But love takes many forms, and it is never the same for any man and woman. What people find then is a CERTAIN love.I kinda like the way he describes "love". Our own personal kind of love. What do YOU think? What's your take on love/true love? Feel free to share your own personal kind of love. :-D I LOVE LOVE stories! :-D
For me, love is a miracle. At least that's the case with me and my husband. I did have a "wrong" kind of relationship once but it helped me find out what I truly wanted in a relationship. Best of all, I found myself (again, in a deeper way - yep, silly me lost myself during the relationship) after it ended. Ever since I was a teenager, I always had some kinds of images (wishes) in my head about the kind of lifetime partner I wanted to have. Then along the years I added more and more points. By getting to know more people and finding out which ones pushed my buttons, I began to have a more specific list of what I wanted from my own lifetime partner. It never crossed my mind whether I was going to find that person or not. I just hoped and hoped and hoped and waited and waited. And right now I can say that he's more than what I ever hoped for. Why more? Because he's real. He's no longer JUST a list in my head. ^_______________________________^
