I am interested in your definition of love, specifically romantic love.

Love is about loving someone for who they are - warts and all. When you would move mountains to be with each other. When you make each other want to be a better person. Love is when you share the same values, beliefs and you communicate your hopes and fears.

I hate copy/paste replies and just so you know, I'm not a very religious person. This is one of my favorite quotes from the Bible...I couldn't word my response any better: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

I know what you mean--I don't expect every man to be Mr. Fixit himself but there are so many annoying things that people have to deal with.

Lady, by your definition, I will say I'd love a man with a cell phone who can dial AAA or the plumber for me....deal with them on my behalf...and then pay the bill.

I would say that it's when a man does things for me--I always told my ex that anyone could say ILY but it's their actions that show if they do or not.

Unconditional love from an attractive, funny, intelligent, financially stable, socially adept, mentally and physically healthy guy who enjoys dancing, reading, playing cards, and shares my other interests and has some of his own would be wonderful. LOL. Not sure if that will happen any time soon. More simply, I feel loved if he makes me feel taken care of. For example, i have a date this weekend to an event thats about an hour away from me, and my date is picking me up rather than asking me to meet him there even though it will be a long drive for him. That makes me feel good. For me, the beginning of strong feelings is a warm inner glow that I get when I think of him or see him. And am starting to feel that way about the guy I've been seeing now for about a month.
