True Love Is Real

Dana's debate got me thinking about this, so I was just wondering, what do you think about "true love"? Do you think it's real, or just in movies?

If a mother's love for her child isn't true love, then I don't know what is.

i can think of two words to change your opinion on that.... : Cassie Anthony

Having to grow up with Cassie Anthony as a mother might have been much worse than being killed as a child; so maybe Cassie had a moment of insight and killed her child as an expression of true love, to save her child the life long pain she was facing.

Boom, refuted.

In my opinion each term in the dictionary has a basis in which a majority agree upon what one thing truly is. True love in the heart of one differs from each person, some say happiness, but what i think it is; is when a single person you find interesting makes you want to change for the best, once you find someone that betters you. That's when you finally find "true love," every human being is an egoist but if you decide to finally change for one person out of 7 billion people it within itself means you're willing to get rid of your selfishness and become selfless. That right there is what i think true love is. So yes, i think it exists but not by the clique meaning it holds.

Side: I Agree

Can we get a working definition of true love? Because if it is based off of human behavior, and is the highest point that humans can reach must be real. If it is an idealism them, it's not a given.

If love wasn't real then there wouldn't be any couples...

True love is definitely real. So many people have experienced it, and its not that hard to believe. In most instances of love, love is true.

Side: I Agree

True love doesn't have to be romantic love, like in Titanic or Romeo and Juliet. It can be love from a sibling, a friend, a mother. True love definitely exists. And as the person below said, that if love from a mother isn't true love, then what is it?

Side: I Agree

I am pretty sure it is. Even though I have not felt love for any creature on this planet I am assuming that when I do feel "love" it will be true.

I don't even know what love is, or how I would begin to distinguish it from 'true' love, so for that reason I have to say no.

I firmly believe that everyone has a breaking point that can shatter 'love' and if it can be broken how can it be true?

Just set your negative emotions aside then talk out your problems.

You can slowly repair the relationship. It's when you are able to take the time to fix the mistakes you've made and clear up misunderstandings. By doing that you are showing that you truly love that person and want to spend your life with them.

It's understandable that some mistakes can't be fixed and in my opinion if you did something so terrible to hurt your significant other(like cheating on them) then you truly never loved them.

There is no such thing as "true love". It is merely a hormonal imbalance or mental illness that is detrimental to society.

In what way is it detrimental to society?

This alleged "true love" is just another way for people to ruin their lives and get hurt. No thank you.

Side: I disagree

There's more than one kind of love. I don't know what kind of love 'true love' refers to here. If 'true love' is taken to mean a kind of love that is based in attachment and egocentrical gain, then you are right; 'true love' would be a problem.

If, however, 'true love' is taken to mean a kind of love that isn't based in attachment and egocentrical gain, but rather is based in wanting to bring about happiness in the loved person, you would be wrong. If true love means nothing but acknowledging another persons right to happiness, then true love would be nothing but beneficial for society.

Love is neve perfect

It's asking if true love is real and not whether it is perfect or not.

If you are able to "get over" each others petty flaws and realize your own flaws as well then you are on your way to true love.

Side: I Agree

But if that is true doesn't that mean that you can fall in love with anybody ... and everybody? and if you fall in love with everybody then 'true love' does not exist.

Side: I disagree

You can fall in love with anyone if you were willing to look past their flaws or think of their flaws as something that are advantages. Anyone with the right perspective can fall in love with anyone.
