Before I even start my story, I am saying that this is a sensitive topic for some and should be dealt with the upmost respect for each and every member who voices their opinion on this thread.
Over the past couple of weeks in school, I have seen a lot of my friends change personalities when confronted with love. One friend is in a deep relationship with his girlfriend and have a very intimate and close relationship even though there are issues in the perspective of mutual jealousy. Another is in love with a girl who is effectively turning him into a tranny each morning (straightening hair, eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick) and in many ways can be a sadist. Another bypassed the possibility of entering a relationship even though last week he was deeply motivated into forcing himself into a relationship. Another has had two different girlfriends in the past week and has gone emo (suicidal thoughts, cutting himself) when they broke up with him respectively. I myself have completely accepted my bisexuality, but have not been in a relationship for more than two years and have not made myself in searching for one. After seeing four of my close friends go through these scenarios with love this confuses me as to what the true definition of love is? It is a passion? A poison? A mask that covers one's true emotions? One that brings joy? One that lusts desire? One that lusts for destruction? It is very confusing and now I am asking you what do you think love is? In your opinion, how do you define love? I can't define love because it is just a complex word that has everything revolved around it. Any words of wisdom?
