Love is..

When love means always be at your heart, near or far. When Love means always holding your hand when in ups and downs. When Love means to be loved. Wikipedia stated that Love is:
"Love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection and attachment. The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure to intense interpersonal attraction. The word love is both a verb and a noun. Love is not a single feeling but an emotion built from two or more feelings. This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states."
What is your own definition of Love? I've looked up some articles and definitions on the meaning of Love and here are my findings.

Love Means Treating Others Well
How to have harmonious relationships is not a mystery. The first meaning of love has to do with how you treat the person you care about. Creating a close, loving relationship is not actually so difficult to understand! How to do it can be learned. In fact, it has to be learned by everyone who knows how to sanctify their relationship rather than pollute it.

Love Means Pleasure
When couples treat each other well, they delight in each other, and love means pleasure, deep emotional enjoyment of each other.

Love Means Caring: Emotional Investment
Sharing life activities and personal information creates intimacy and emotional connection. Over time, caring grows and your emotional investment in the other deepens, even when all is not "rosy" and pleasurable. We love because we find our emotional match in the other person, that which makes us feel more whole. We have found a "soul mate" and gradually become more and more emotionally and spiritually connected to the other person. (source from
