True Love Is..

True love is caring for and loving someone else more than yourself. True love is giving of your WHOLE self, not just a part of you, or a sliver of your heart. :icon12: True love means giving it your all, 100%. I found true love, and will hold onto it for dear life. He is my everything, my world. If I didn't have him in my life, I would feel lost without a paddle. I don't ever want to lose him, not ever.

I just re-read all of our early messages back and forth and started crying. We were good friends to begin with, then it blossomed into something more, but then he suddenly left me. He came back two months later, and now we're engaged, six months after that. I am so very grateful that he came back to me. During the time he was gone, I was a serious heartbroken mess. I had sworn off love for good.

He is sleeping right now peacefully, and I am so grateful he is here with me. He moved out of state to be with me and now we're living together happily. We're facing some life challenges, but we can overcome them together. We are strong together, and stronger than I am when alone.

I have never felt more grateful. Re-reading the messiness I had gone through in my last relationship and how he had supported me through that experience made me even more grateful to know him and have him as my fiance. Sometimes, I have to pinch myself, I cannot even believe that we're together right now. We both knew from the start that it was no coincidence we found each other. I do believe that a higher power was at play.

I have never been more in love or happier. My heart swells with love for him, and it is the deepest kind, the kind I always wanted but never had. I have never loved anyone more. I was never really in love before him, though I wanted to believe I was.

True love really is amazing. I will never stop being grateful, most especially given all the wrong relationships and abuse that I've gone through before. I will always be grateful each and every day.

We have an amazing life ahead of us, and even if we face difficulties, I know in my heart that we can overcome them. I am really looking forward to the grand adventure ahead! A new chapter, a new life, a new beginning. And it's all because of him.

True love is delicious and something to be treasured and valued every day. I will never forget that.

The downside to your definition of true love is that your esteem is dependent on something you can't control.

Actually, my esteem is not dependent on love or my relationship or my partner. My self-esteem is strong and is very much separate and in tact without my relationship. I only said I would be lost without him because I now know what true love is now that I have found it.

why is it that when you write about something wonderful and amazing, inevitably someone tries to tear it down? that is exactly why I left DF to begin with.

With 1800 facebook friends i'm surprised you take a nonjudgemental observation so personally.

I don't really understand where you were coming from with your original comment. It did seem directed at me. At least it was in response to my post about true love. Why write something negative to a positive post to begin with?

I also do not wish to argue, especially on my own blog. If you have nothing positive to say, then please do not post here.

You are confusing the euphoria of romantic love with true love. True love starts possibley when the euphoria wears off. In terms of time your relationship is still new. You leave yourself open to being a victim of abuse when you OD on a person. Positive and negative have nothing to do with situation.

Please stop replying on my blog. My post was a positive one about my love for the man I adore and am engaged to. You clearly feel the need to rain on my parade and turn everything into something negative.
