what's love? according to wikipedia, love is an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment. for me, love is unexplainable. we can't really define feelings/emotions. love comes without any permission. it just happens.
imo, there are 3 types of love:
- family; it's a basic love. family love you unconditionally. it's a pure love since you're born. family is a group of people who won't ever leave you behind. they accept you whoever you are and whatever you do. don't ever try to disappoint them.
- best friends; I'm not saying 'friends', it's best friends. best friends are like your family; they don't leave you and try to be with you most of the time. friends are the ordinary ones. you can't 100% trust your friends. you don't know whether they're faking their acts. love among best friends is also precious. like family's love, best friends don't leave you; they support you and accept you whoever you are. they're excellent for us, no matter how-why-how we've been through. they don't care about our past.
- boyfriend/girlfriend; two steps before marriage is having boyfriend/girlfriend. it's like a process of knowing your loved one before taking him/her to the next stage. child's love is just for having fun without knowing the meaning of being in a relationship. those who consider having boyfriend/girlfriend as a serious matter, congratulations!
someone told me that there's a girl asked him to be her "brother". she definitely loves you and doesn't want to lose you but too afraid to confess. boys do the same thing. or maybe they never ask but they consider you as one.
how great love is? I'm taking a Mandarin character "ai"; means "love". "ai," the traditional Chinese character for love consists of a heart inside of accept, feel, or perceive, which shows a graceful emotion. it can also be interpreted as a hand offering ones heart to another hand.
