I have been in love before--I believe in love, in a way. But I was married for a long time. And I have felt love. So I believe in love. But I believe in it in the way that if the person or persons in love truly believe they're in love, then they are and no one should say otherwise. But, at the same time, the rational and logical side of me would want to explain how the feeling we describe as "love" is essentially a chemical imbalance, and while on the one hand... I can say "Well, science can explain what it is, so it's obviously real" but then again, because of how the feeling tends to wear off over time (and this is not meant offensively to anyone, but scientifically, it is a fact. That's why we have things like "puppy love", "the honeymoon phase" and "the 7 year itch"). It dies down, which means the best idea of whatever "True love" is... is essentially just a couple determined to be together, and willing to openly communicate, and stick it out through everything, in spite of everything. It's a pretty crazy concept, if you think about it. But a powerful one, nonetheless. So, do I believe in love?... maybe not so much, in the typical belief kind of way. But I certainly do believe in the commitment, and willpower, and dedication and faithfulness behind it. And if you find your one and only, then more power to you. It's a beautiful thing.
I love my friends and family, but i've never romantically liked anyone~ I think love in generally though has many different shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. For example, there are some 'intimate' things that a -lot- of people consider as romantic, but for me their just another way of showing friendship. (Like holding hands, or kissing)
