"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    I had a very interesting chat with my neighbour, a great-grandmother. She might agree with you @seyfrouini.

    I think you know when you're in love, so if you're not sure, you probably haven't. I hope that you fall in love one day!

    I think love is a long term thing. You don't fall in love. You just feel a great attraction for somebody that can later become love if things work out well. I think we tend to conflate passion with love. These are my definitions :
    "Passion" is an immediate, somewhat superficial, powerful, short term thing. It attracts you toward somebody (or something) that can later become more serious and leads you to :
    "Love" that takes more time to appear, is deeper, unbreakable, long term thing.

    An other way to put it is to imagine "love" and "passion" like a bond between 2 persons. Passion wears off. Love doesn't.

    I think you are right @Maxeagle. A lot of feel confuse passion with love. I remember a Buddhist teacher saying that many couples 'fall in lust' and that this is not at all the same thing as loving someone.

    Love is when you treat others as you want others to treat you.
    Love is being understanding and patient.

    I agree with that a lot. You have to be understanding and patient even when you don't understand why your loved one is doing certain things.

    Everyone I know who's married tells me that it is quite hard and no one really can claim to have a perfect marriage.

    Yeah that's true. You do have to work on relationships if you want them to last, and I think that a lot of people give in too easily these days.
