In light of recent decisions I have made in my life I was thinking about what it means to love someone and what I do that shows that person I love them and what they do that shows me they love me. I wanted to know what makes you feel loved?

knowing that I can have a complete meltdown and he is there to listen and comfort me, and not judge and not give advice - just listen and hold me and comfort me.

little things - random hugs and kisses when I am not expecting it, holding hands while we are driving somewhere, asking me if I need anything while he is getting himself something, asking me what I want or like, tolerating the heat because I am cold even though he is sweating, asking what he can do to help, buying me flowers even tho he thinks flowers are stupid, spending hours picking out the "right" card for holidays.

granted some of these are just "considerate" things - but it's the first time I have been in a relationship where someone thinks about my needs/wants instead of just theirs.

Telling my whole truth and he listens, doesn't judge me, and offers advice right away--makes me feel strong too because he seems to think anything is surmountable.

Also, when he is affectionate without wanting sex.

It's too hard to define, too many factors...

mostly the deep emotional connection with another person who accepts you flaws and all!

Love comes in many forms. My sister and I live together and neither one of us is particularly "touchy" but every once in awhile, she will come in my room at night and snuggle into bed with me. That makes me feel so loved sometimes.

With a boyfriend, love can be holding hands in the car, in the movie or while walking together. Love is giving me a real hug, not a half-assed arm around the shoulder hug. Love is brushing my hair from my face when the wind messed it up. Love is helping me carry something heavy that I stubbornly think I can manage all on my own. Love is being proud of me and listening to me. It is sending me random emails or text messages to let me know you are thinking of me. It is sharing dinner and a margarita with me after a long, hard day at work. It is respecting that I need time alone too and not getting offended at that. It is respecting my friends and family because they are important to me. Love is giving up Monday Night Football to spend time with me instead. Love is also sharing with me your thoughts, dreams and opinions. Love is a million little things and it is different for everyone.

Being #1 in my significant other's life. Him being there for me when I need him to be.

Getting a little gift every now and then, just because.

Love is when a friend listens to this endless whining about ex bf, and helps dissect it all, and prays for me, and lets me call late at night.

when someone respects how you feel and just cuz you may be "different" doesn't mean you are wrong...and someone who gives you the hugs and kisses that count, not the ones that you feel you have to give. Wanting to be with someone and not feeling you have to be with them...i guess, all and all being real about love with
no questions asked.

I feel loved best when...I don't have to think about being loved. I feel loved when someone says "sorry" and they mean it. I feel loved when someone says they'll pray for me...and they do! I feel loved when I can be myself around someone and they tell me they think I'm great anyway! lrnin-

My own attitude determines my feelings of love.
