Two Cricles, a Triangle Means What?

by thegreatfriends on August 12, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

All my life i was told "I love you", by family and friends. But I never really knew the meaning of it. Its a feeling, but peopledescibe it as a physical object. At an age now I'm curious about alot of things but I never really knew how love feels. I've told many people that I love them, because theyre just someone I wouldnt want to loose or hurt. But what is loving someone? Is trhere really a person out there to be "the one"? There can be many "the ones" but its just a matter of choosing one. So many people would love me. But any of them could be the one I would want to spend the rest of my life with. and thats all of them. We all might say things to describe love. But no one really know what it is. I've told someone "I love you" millions of times thinking it would last. But it turns out to be friends. Love can be an angel. Love can be a devil. hell love can be the rock in your front yard. So, what is love?
