Love isn't blind or deaf or dumb - in fact it sees far more than it will ever tell. It is going beyond yourself and stretching who you are for someone else. Being in love entails seeing someone as you wish they were: to love them is to see who they really are and still care for them. Love isn't bitter, but you can't have love without pain: sacrifice is the hallmark of love , the coin of love.
Being in love usually is used in a romantic sense when you meet your significant other transforming a normal relationship into a deeper one without further interest in others.
Love means that you trust the person, would do anything for the person, know that person is with you through thick and thin, isn't afraid to be seen with you. make sure they treat you right.

The secret to true love as opposed to sexual love is to under stand that it is unconditional, if you love some one or something you must love it warts and all, otherwise it's conditional love. A dog can spend its life being mistreated and still welcome its master. That is true love.
Before we can discuss the secret to true love, you must understand that true love is a gift that has to be valued and nourished. It's not something that you find one day like a beautiful seashell on a beach and put it up somewhere to be admired. True love is a part of life that has a life of its own. Value and nourish it, and it will grow and become deeper and more valuable. Find it, give it no value and forget to nourish it, and it will die. Simple as that.
The first secret to true love is knowing when you have found the love of your life, your other half, the one who is more important to you than even yourself, the one your entire being tells you is the one for you. That may happen one day when you look across a room and meet the eyes of her or him, your eyes lock and your heart jumps, and the eyes you are looking into tell you that the same is happening on the other side of that gaze. It could also happen when you are out with someone that you have dated casually for months, but never really felt much of anything for. Suddenly, one night, your heart could leap as your eyes meet or your lips touch. Knowing you have found true love might be just a quiet knowing that the person is the one for you. It happens differently for different people.
After meeting your true love, the secret to keeping the love alive is to unselfishly put the other person before yourself and communicate with that person in a positive and open manner. Many great relationships have lost their pizazz due to mistakes of one or both becoming selfish and not communicating with the other. Even those who have found their true loves have lost them because of the hurt and disappointment caused when the love of your life's actions and words say "you don't matter," "I'm for me first," and similar things.
When two people find true love and each puts the others hopes, dreams, desires, and feelings above their own and communicates in such a way as to build the other up and share their innermost thoughts, beautiful things happen! The true love that was found grows into something more beautiful than a rose, deeper than the deepest ocean, and stronger than anything imaginable. Anything less than being unselfish, putting the other before yourself, and great communication and it's tough for even true love to survive.A:2
You must know how to distinguish between love and infatuation. The KEY to true Love and Romance are not like recipes that you can use for that perfect relationship. That Key is unique to every couple and relates to their social cultures and values. Almost every human relationship has its ups and downs. When people can focus on the important and valuable stuff that makes it all worthwhile, rather than curse the stuff that causes pain then they are on the way to finding true Love .
You must not get caught up with the superficial physical characteristics that you would like in your mate. You should preferably focus your attention on emotional qualities like compassion, respect, cooperation and dependability that you would want your mate to demonstrate.
Finding true love starts with your ability to find it first within yourself. You must be happy and contented with who you are. When you are able to create positive energy around you it will work like a sweet flower attracting the honeybees. You will be able to connect with the right person.
u jst have to go near them n try to talk to them n if it doesnot work then, try to do something which will divert their attention towards u.
Communication is the best way to build a good relationship.Send them greetings,buy a card during special occasional a simple gift will do.If you love to cook,cook their favorite dishes or sometimes treat them in to their favorite restaurant.Always make them feel how much you care for them.
...or if it's only a crush?
There is only one way you can tell if you're truly in love: you don't wonder about it, you just know that it's there. (People have been asking this ever since love was invented.) ____
It is a very common question, "How can I tell I'm in love?", but it is not an easy question to answer. What feels like love to one person may be nothing more than attraction to another. Some people fall in and out of love quickly and often while others are never really in love as much as they are in lust. This can get confusing when you are a teen because romantic love is a relatively new concept for you and you don't know what to expect. You are overwhelmed with all sorts of new feelings and social pressures. They are confusing.
What is love? What makes you want a romantic relationship with one person and not another? How does your heart choose a partner? Why does love end? These questions can't be easily answered. Lust is a very powerful, very intense feeling of physical attraction toward another person. Lust is mainly sexual in nature - the attraction is superficial based on instant chemistry rather than genuine caring. Usually we lust after people we do not know well, people we still feel comfortable fantasizing about. It is very common for people to confuse lust for love. But why? What is it about lust and love that make them so easy to mix up? If lust is all about sex, how can a relationship without sex be about lust?
Teens struggle with this because they see lust in the Biblical sense, but lust isn't that sinister. Lust is about physical attraction and acting ONLY on physical attraction. Love is about much more than that. Yet many teens (and to be fair, many adults) confuse an intense attraction for some sort if divine love. For teens, since feelings of attraction are still new and since pop-culture sells sex and love as one package, it is very easy to get the two mixed up.
When you are in love, you are sort of paranoid when the person comes around. When you see them, you are trying to make yourself more to something that you know they'll like, even if it means pretending to be a person that doesn't know who they really are. When you are in love, you can't describe your feelings and you feel so blind because love removes all the pain you feel. When you come across your crush, you feel like you are melting and as if you are going to faint. Sometimes, when you feel that you want to faint, you try and play around that you fainted, just to fall into his/her arms. When someone says "Love is blind, as far as the eye can see", it's best to believe it.____You know you are in love when you see them and you go tingly and warm. You know when you are into space. ____When you are in love (been there).....well, when you first start going out you are all nervous to see them....but then after a couple of months you don't get nervous any more but you still feel this giggly feeling...you feel like you are floating and you are sooo happy and you want to spend so much time with this person it's great...but take it slowly, others aren't always as ready as you are for love. ____You know you're in love when all you can do is think about them day and night...when all you can do is fear of losing them, someone else replacing you...you find them to be the most beautiful person whom ever existed...Everything they do is right in your eyes and they can do no wrong.. That person makes you feel special and you want to be with them 24/7...Its more of an emotional connection..That person makes you want to be a better person...you do things for them you never did to anyone else before..you just know you're in love (a feeling)..When you find the love of your life time stops with everything else and he/she is the only thing that moves... ____I've been in love before and when I see him I don't feel warm and tingly inside, but my stomach flips and it feels like I'm on a roller coaster! You're absolutely right that when you're in love, you don't act like yourself around that person. It's nearly impossible to act like yourself around someone you are in love with because you're afraid that they won't like the real you! But, to get them to love you for real you have to just be who you really are. It might sound cheesy but it's true!
You'll get a special feeling in your heart.. Something that will make you cry to sleep if you imagine that person being harmed or with someone else.. You want to be with that person. They enter your thoughts a lot... You get carried away sometimes. Yet you don't care, because it's all for that person... <3
Wow! congratulation, but wait is this person single or married? You will know if you are falling in love through your heart, it will beat faster every time you see this person. when your away from this person your heart feels a bit sad because you miss this person. You can't stop thinking of this person and most of all you feel excited every time you see the person..
In addition you will know by having this smile in your face every time you think of the person, your heart will have this little happy kick.
Unfortunately, I am describing hoe the man I marry fell in love with the woman he met on a dating site. But still it is how a person will feel when he or she is in love. I felt that way to when I fell in love with my husband years ago.
You never know when you are in love unless you meet the following 3 criteria:
The love is unconditional.
The love is forever.
The love must be in both of you.
You know when you're in love : you are able to be open with each other, and you make a commitment to that person. When that person tells you "I love you", you get butterflies and you feel special. Now if you are a guy it's different sometimes; but you know you're in love when your feelings are deep, and you see each other's eyes in the world.
I'm in love, i know, i know more than anything i love this person, you can just feel it! There's no denying it. It's built in there, somewhere, you just have to find it. Once you fall in love, it's all you can do to stay alive. I would die if i lost my better half. I can't live in a world where he doesn't exists.
You may be one person to the world, but to one person you are the world.
Well It sounds really stupid but every one knows in different ways you will know and have a gut feeling you will know i promise. You will feel butter flys in your stomach when you see the person, think about them, or if you smile by the mention of the name.
I think Love is when you hear his/her voice you melt. When you look at there eyes and you notice the color for the first time, and its the most beautiful thing you have ever seen. when you run to them with any issue you may have and you KNOW that they will do all in there power to save you as best they can, even if its something small. and they love you for just the way you are, they love every little weird face and silly laugh you have to offer. That to me is perfect love
You know you are in love when all you can think about is that special person.
When you haven't talked in awhile, anywhere from ten minutes to ten days, do you long for his/her voice?
I say it is when you don't second guess it.
So how can you tell the difference between lust and love? Here are a few tips to help you sort things out.
It's lust if:
It's love if:
Lust is when you want to sleep with them.
If you love being in their presence even when nothing sexual is involved. I think that if you are with a person that you truly are in love with, lust is a natural thing that comes with it.
Ask yourself, "If I could never have sex with this person for my whole life, would i still love this person?" Think about it.
It's love when you rejoice for your partner's happiness, even if that means being away from you. It's lust when you rejoice for being together, even at the cost of your partner's happiness. Usually, we are somewhere in between.

Gouwuchephobia is the fear of shopping carts. However, only one reference to this can be found on the web.
It would depend on the reason they don't laugh. They might be sad, depressed, or may not have a very good sense of humor. Melancholic means sad, down in the dumps, or blue. They could also be cranky, gloomy, or cheerless.
There is absolutely no way to answer this question because there are so many girls, each is an individual with different minds and bodies, so there are many different ways to be a girl. Each girl will feel differently and there is no one way for someone to be a girl so no one way to feel. Remember too that even girls bodies can differ, some will have menstrual cycles, breasts, vulvas and vaginas whereas there are other girls who have penises and no menstrual cycles.
Here a variety of opinions from Wiki contributors:
Actually, anger induces emotional stress, which takes a toll on brain cells by increasing adrenergic activity via the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis. This causes increases in cortisol, a stress hormone. Emotional stress also induces cumulative cellular damage due to increases in what is called oxidative stress (the increased metabolic breakdown of cellular materials leading to free radical production).
While young persons have bodies that have much less cumulative damage (due to youth), and have active DNA and cellular repair mechanisms, as people get older, these repair mechanisms accumulate damage themselves (through environmental factors and even the cells' own metabolic processes), and they work less effectively.
Since emotional/oxidate stress has been shown to increase the "load" on cells, increasing the rate of this damage, the older a person gets, and the more stress the body is under, the more likely their cells will be unable to repair this damage, and the more likely that brain cell death will increase.
Now, there are many other, more pronounced mechanisms that result in brain cell death or deactivation in the presence of emotional stress. The homeostatic, regulatory factors of the brain can sense prolonged adrenergic stress and will downregulate (desensitize) certain neural pathways in order to minimize the stress signal. It also "rewires" certain neural pathways to adapt to stressful environments. Large-scale changes based on high-stress are often found in neurotic (anxiety) disorders and in PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
Fear of Asians is called sinophobia.
I'm not sure what your asking but I'll explain about emotionlessness.
Before I start I suffer from that emotionless feeling, but its not all bad, it could mean somethings wrong but it could mean somethings just really right.
Feeling emotionless can be caused by lots of things, mental illness being the least common, anxiety which is very common as today's world isn't very happy. Why I feel emotionless is a mystery, My life's not great and full of stress, the biggest cause of anxiety. I'm not an expert but am talking from experience.
It can be caused by things like being rejected a lot, it could be your are just apathetic (look it up).
But no one is honestly emotionless, just because you are out of touch with your emotions. Get out there, see life for what it is, people with a really good perception and logical minds can feel emotionless, this being my other theory about my emotionlessness.
Let me prove your emotions are still there.... Listen to a song, an emotional and nostalgic one (research nostalgia) as this is one of my more powerful emotions it can break to the surface. Think about your happier memories, those times when you felt no worry, the times you wish with all your heart you could go back to, let the music take you back. Now think about how you feel, you may feel nostalgia, that unbearable sadness, you will see you still can feel, you just need to find out why your out of touch.
I'm not sure if you were looking for a deep post but I wanted to put this for those people who are looking for answers, as this is answers.com!
I hope many people benefit from this!
i am also confused about this
Yes. Great big crocodile tears. If you know anything about crocodile tears, you'll run quickly in the other direction.
If a narcissist is decompensated, usually after you break up with them (not the other way around) or they have lost a significant source of secondary narcissistic supply, then the facade can come tumbling down, and what is left is the despondent, depressed child that put up the narcissistic self so long ago. Then, they can shed very real tears, and they can be very forthcoming about "the facade" and how deep down they just want to be loved. But before you can bat an eyelash--usually a day or more, depending on how severe the narcissistic injury--the false self is reconstructed and the tears are gone, only now the narcissist will violently devalue you because you know what they are...
That depends on why you are guilty. You can always confess to the one you are guilty about. While confessing, be truthful and don't exaggerate. If you have damaged the person or his property, save money to pay for the damage. If you have cheated in an exam, confess to your teacher by telling him why and how you cheated. Make your teacher give you the correct punishment by taking away the points you got by cheating. If the one you want to say sorry to isn't alive anymore or otherwise can't contact you, write a letter of confession before burning it.
If your mother works, she may not have much time to spend with you, it is because the cost of living is so high and she wants to be able to pay the bills especially for the food and every day needs you have.
If she works she is tired or, if she is a stay-at-home mom she may not be feeling well, so medications may make her tired or just very tired from looking after the chores at home.
You could help her with some chores: possibly in taking you to school; sports practices; doctor's or dentist's appointments.
Moms tend to get tired, but be assured your mother loves you very much. Sit down with your mother and let her know how you feel so she can explain to you how much she loves you and why she is so tired. Most of all be sure you are happy and have a good education.
Also, it depends on what your mom's social life is like. If she is divorced she may feel that she wants to be loved by a man who would care for her in a different way from you, her child would. This is natural she just probably feels lonely if this is the case.
It changed because many people could now afford to buy food, instead of stealing it.
nostalgia or being nostalgic...
No single musical note sounds happy or sad. It is only when you combine them with other notes in chords that they sound happy or sad.
To make people cry you will need to create much larger tonal structures. Study the works of Mahler.
All of us are members of human society and we have to deal with our fellow humans, and to do so successfully we need to understand human behavior. However, if you were to find some remote cave that nobody ever visits, and live there in isolation from the rest of the human race, then it would not be necessary for you to understand human behavior.
