Love is defined as having strong feelings for someone, but it's more than that.

Yes, love is a feeling, but it's an emotion, an action, and experience, a gift, an overall wonderful thing.

It's when you know you have to do something, but just don't want to because of them.

It's when you two are together, and nothing else matters.

It's when after a long-term relationship, you don't feel like it was a waste of time, all the short-term ones were.

It's when you aren't afraid to try new things together.

It's when if they fall short as a boyfriend or girlfriend, they don't as a best friend.

It's when you feel like there is no one else for you.

It's when you are willing to commit to them forever.

It's not when you blame the other for everything.

It's not when you don't take the time to give them another chance at all.

It's not when you leave and never come back.

It's when you can be honest and open regardless.

It's when you two have inside jokes that you will remember for a while.

It's when you don't care if your friends talk about you two.

It's when HE takes that certain measure for HER to realize she can't always be the boss.

It's when you can learn together from your mistakes.

This is my vision of love.
