I did, but I think you have to want love and be willing to open your heart to it, which means risking being hurt. I don't think everyone is capable of that.

Nobody knows what "true love" is. That may be because humans are unsatisfied by nature...

Not everyone is interested in it, and those that do what would be their relationship isn't culturally or legally acceptable, keeping them from pursuing it.

I know it's false... You would too if you would meet my 8th grade science teacher.

Some people have it right in front of them, yet they never find it. It is sad really.

I'm 26 today. I haven't yet and as I get older I feel my chances rapidly dwindling.

Sometimes it sneaks up on you when it's the last thing you are expecting. It did for me, and I was 33.

Probably not, but not everyone bothers to look for it. I think it's a safe bet that everyone will have had the opportunity, but not everyone will have taken the trouble to see it.

Yes, everyone will, because that is what we are made of. We seek love, because we are love.

Nope, you have to seek it out instead of waiting for it to find you.

Isn't it sad that we all feel this way.

Well, first, I don't believe in true love. But if I did I don't think everyone would be capable of creating it.

"True" love, in my opinion, is something that is made, not found.

There's so many different kinds of love. The love I have for God and I feel He has for me just gets better and better. I don't always love my husband. Sometimes I don't even like him. I always love my children even at times I don't I'm not too fond

of them. There are people on this app that if I were financially capable I would fly cross country to help them.

I'm genuinely curious.. Can people who aren't Christians experience true love?

Obviously not, Hayley.

You're not going to find God in the wrong places, so no.

What if a Christian is in a relationship with someone they love.. And they later leave Christianity? Does their love become illegitimate?

Or are you saying that the only true love is Gods love?

Hi Hayley, as a lifelong atheist and personal expert on what it feels like to be non xtian, I can tell you that yes, without a doubt, non xtians can and do feel true love. I love my husband of almost 18 yrs, through good and bad. So there, orthodox.

I was talking about loving God, not marital relations.

jaid, we understood that. But we wonder if you believe that is the only true love that can be experienced?

JaidOC Macon, GA
02/11/14 12:02 pm

Yes, that is the truest love.

02/11/14 12:09 pm

Truest, but the only? Can we not find true love amongst His creations? Is that something He has denied us the ability to experience?

Not being insultory. Genuinely curious.

I'm sorry that you feel like the only true love comes from a being that exists only in your mind. This makes me sad. Even if I believed in a god, it still wouldn't be as good as the interactive love I have with my family.

Yes, you can find love in God's creation and there is NOTHING wrong with that, it's just that God's is obviously on a different level.

No, many people will settle for less or good enough, just to not be alone.

That's not completely true. I don't think people would get married unless they felt they had some sort of significant connection.

True, if you can have that love for yourself first. You don't attract what you want, you attract what you are.
