    1. Define love in your own words.
    A chemical intoxication of the brain, that may be necessary to prolong our existence as a species, but is generally prone to cause more trouble than good in the long run for the subject involved.
    An idealization, harboured by some people, of the above facts into the romantic concept we call love.
    An unwritten rule of our society that the above idealization is true and must not be put under any critical scrutiny. Almost a dogma for many people.


    2. What does love feel like for you?
    it feels like.. "ahhh.. mhhh.. sweet.. love... blabla... oh shit look at yourself man... im gonna regret this... hell, lets just drink a beer and play a game for now.."


    3. How do you prefer to recieve love?
    uhm.. sex, loyalty, and understanding of my unique nature and need for free 'me'-time..
    I don't have big needs, I take care of my own interests alone, so just being there is enough.


    4. How do you show your love? Is expressing it easy or difficult? Are you effusive or reserved?
    It depends on the moment... mostly I'm physically affectionate...
    I absolutely can't, and hate, putting anything into words, it makes me feel stupid, and it's all a game anyway.
    Oh, and I sometimes do things for my SO, when my normal mode of living would be to happily ignore everyone.


    5. How many people do you TRULY love?
    what is TRULY? Sounds like a Feeler word to me... so the answer is zero probably.. apart from myself, that is..


    6. How long does it take for you to truly love someone?
    uhm... In my case I'd rather ask "how long does it take to get fed up with someone?" XD
    I don't know anyway, 1 second, 1 hour, 1 century... doesn't matter, the only difference between "truly" or "not truly" is the amount of tears and sniffs to put up with, when the end comes.


    7. What causes you to love someone?
    uhm shit, I read "leave" instead of "love" here...... looks like I'm really not in the mood today..... lulz


    8. Have you experienced unrequited love? If so, describe your feelings about it.
    I was very young (and stupid). Nowadays it just doesn't happen anymoar. No wait, it happened a few years ago...! The nearest feeling I can link to the experience is that of... liquid fecal matter, maybe?
    Seriously, when she refused me, I think I had something similar to a heart attack. We were friends... before. I cut all contacts afterwards.


    9. Are your feelings towards people consistant, or do you fluctate between love and hate?
    My feelings are mostly consistent in their lack of existence...


    10. Is it difficult for you to love people? Do you guard yourself, or are you open?
    I don't know. I'm a very spontaneous person, but I'm just not into people. I really feel that questions like this are geared towards a Feeler type, who has, you know, feelings for each and everyone and spends infinite hours thinking about others and his degree of relationship to them. I'm not like that, I don't know, and I don't care. What happens, happens.

    I've a question for the elders:

    Do you still have feelings for your first crush?

    Sometimes I come across pictures on social networking sites of a girl I fell head over heels in love for - she turned me down - and the same feeling I felt when I was trying to ask her out happens.

    All the blood just rushes into my organs and my stomach feels compacted.

    I just want to know if this feeling will ever truly go away. I mean, it doesn't happen often, especially since I don't go to school any more so I dont see her, but I don't know whether the feeling will re-occur if I do happen to see her again.
    Hello. There'll be something here soon.

    1. Define love in your own words.
    Something where baby doesn't hurt you no more?
    Seriously, love is something that can be felt through mankind. It can be encouraged and repressed.

    2. What does love feel like for you?
    A bunch of mixed signals needing to be understood.

    3. How do you prefer to recieve love?
    Words, body contact (kissing, holding hands).

    4. How do you show your love? Is expressing it easy or difficult? Are you effusive or reserved?
    Depends. I am mostly reserved about it.

    5. How many people do you TRULY love?
    Hard to say. (I'm not counting blood relatives)

    6. How long does it take for you to truly love someone?
    It doesn't take very long to be infatuated with someone. However, to truly love someone I have to be infatuated first, then move on to truly loving someone, so maybe a month?

    7. What causes you to love someone?
    Physically: Eyes. Facial structure. Body, eh not so important.
    Emotionally: Stability is key.
    Other: There needs to be a connection between the both of us in order to really hit it off. Either physically or emotionally.

    8. Have you experienced unrequited love? If so, describe your feelings about it.
    Naw.

    9. Are your feelings towards people consistant, or do you fluctate between love and hate?
    Fluctuation until that person is out of my mind.

    10. Is it difficult for you to love people? Do you guard yourself, or are you open?
    Sometimes I find it difficult, but not as difficult in years past. I am starting to open up more now.

    I had a headache just thinking about responding to this before, but now I think I'm ready:

    1. Define love in your own words.
    A harmonious connection with someone else that goes deeper than surface distinctions yet encourages, and is even obsessed with, the differences.

    2. What does love feel like for you?
    Hm, going by the definition I just gave, I'd say it feels very moving and fulfilling. It's able to keep one rooted somewhere regardless of his penchant for adventure and wanderlust. That's how it occurs to me, at least. It's a very strong magnetic pull that causes you to see the person in a very wonderful and non-critical light (the latter is pretty hard for me sometimes).

    3. How do you prefer to recieve love?
    Appreciation, attention, and plenty of physical affection. The more you pay attention to me and the more responsive you are, the more I will feel loved. I pretty much need constant attention, although that might sound pathetic. If I'm not getting an energetic and almost-constant display of it from someone I really like although I'm giving that out myself I feel ignored.

    4. How do you show your love? Is expressing it easy or difficult? Are you effusive or reserved?
    If I really feel and experience love toward someone I have no trouble showing it unless I think it's not reciprocated. I usually feel as if I can win someone over to my affection but if after alot of work I still don't get much back I will generally give up and stop caring.

    5. How many people do you TRULY love?
    I have many friends whom I truly love for just being who they are and their reciprocation of that. I love my family in a different way but not with less depth, I'd say, though they don't always feel as close to me as they'd want.

    6. How long does it take for you to truly love someone?
    It depends much less on quantity of time and more on quality. The more intentional giving of oneself there is, the more affection and excitement in the relationship the more likely there is for a deeper connection to be established.

    7. What causes you to love someone?
    Them truly being themselves and being a tolerant person who loves for me to be myself and truly appreciates my presence.

    8. Have you experienced unrequited love? If so, describe your feelings about it.
    Yes. It sucks. I end up feeling offended if I'm simply ignored or just plain despondent and lost even if I'm not. I usually don't see why the person doesn't like me enough to want to be with me, even if they've found someone else.

    9. Are your feelings towards people consistant, or do you fluctate between love and hate?
    Depends on how deep the connection that was made. I switch between liking or disliking someone from moment to moment so it's usually nothing big, but if there's a deeper connection there I'm less likely to spurn the person. If there's not, I might avoid them if I don't like them or just not give them appreciation.

    10. Is it difficult for you to love people? Do you guard yourself, or are you open?
    I think I have a natural defense to keep myself from being hurt or embarrassed but this mostly manifests as clever mechanisms to make myself seem more presentable and charming, like an irritant that a clam uses to make a pearl. If I see that you like me despite my idiosyncracies or weird quirks, then you have instantly won me over and I'll be especially affectionate and generous toward you and do anything to keep the friendship vibrant and alive.

    1. Define love in your own words.
    Love is an intense emotion that fuels irrational decisions.

    2. What does love feel like for you?
    Spinning out of control. Panic.

    3. How do you prefer to recieve love?
    Quiet moments together. Doing things together.

    4. How do you show your love? Is expressing it easy or difficult? Are you effusive or reserved?
    Expressing it is so difficult! I mean it's difficult for me, but it just kind of explodes out of me. I have been known to make things for people. Once I wrote someone a story about us in the vigenerre cipher and spent time binding it and painting the pages pretty, and they never mentioned it after I gave it to them. That was a good two years ago and it still stings a bit. So, screw that, I just hang out with people now, I will devote most of my time to them. They may not realize this because it might seem like only a bit of the week with them, but I'm not spending it with anyone else but them, the rest of the time I'm by myself.

    5. How many people do you TRULY love?
    I care about my little brother's well-being. I detest a lot of people. I say I'm in love with an INFP right now, but I'm starting to think that was just an emotional and irrational outburst.

    6. How long does it take for you to truly love someone?
    A lifetime. I might realize I love them as I'm about to die. LMAO

    7. What causes you to love someone?
    I think about them all the fucking time and I start to piss myself, then I think I've got it BAD.

    8. Have you experienced unrequited love? If so, describe your feelings about it.No

    9. Are your feelings towards people consistant, or do you fluctate between love and hate?

    Fluctuate, except for a recent development with this INFP I keep talking about (grrrr) I haven't been annoyed by him at all. I haven't wanted to get as far away from him as possible. Usually I can only hang out with anyone in small doses, even my closest friend.

    10. Is it difficult for you to love people? Do you guard yourself, or are you open?
    Difficult.
