Salaam and hi to all lovely readers,
As you can tell by the various answers, what qualifies as "love" depends on who you ask-let along a "great love".One might argue that a marriage would qualify a "great love" while a "magical kiss" or "perfect moment" would qualify just as much. Some would even say that a "summer love" or even a perfect one-night stand would be a "great love". We see it in movies all the time.As humans of our history and this society, we like to think that TRUE love exists when in fact Love exists between people of varying degrees at varying moments in life at varying moments even in a day. But is it because we actually LOVE the person or because we love the idea of TRUE LOVE or that we want so much to be a part of the what's considered TRUE LOVE?
Or do we pretend we were only in love with being in love to ease the pain?It really depends how you look at it, who you ask, who's lying to themselves, if emotions can lie and who's really sane enough to answer anything about something so abstract as love? Or are we all sane enough and all answers are credible? I practically think that a truly great love that is built on a solid and firm foundation that will last, is fairly rare to find. But to have that kind of love it takes two people committed and respecting and communicating with one another. The reality is, physical beauty can fade in time, but a love built on a deep and respectful love is quite powerful and generally will keep growing.

I have known a few people in life who have had that awesome deep love between them. No matter how old they get it remains special. And I've known a couple of people who had such a love, and when their mate died unexpectedly, they eventually found love again and it was equally deep, only perhaps in different ways. Yes, it surely is a wonderful blessing if you can be in that kind of special relationship!

Hmmm...Great love is from passionate lovers. To experience that blessing in life is to have to love yourself unconditionally.

I guess because we love the idea of of "True Love" and as human being we want to be a part of it. And I am one of them. And I failed.

I always believe that love is an act of will, an intention and an action. We do not have to love,we choose to love. So when we believe that love is an action, so we know that action are tolerance,giving,receiving,etc.. Most couple they failed in their relationship when they stop "doing these action". That is the moment when we feel "not in love" anymore.. The couple that u mention they have awesome deep love between them, those couple are so much in love because of the chemistry between them.. They will everyday expecting to give everything to each other.. Hope you will find yours.. :)

Let me share this beautiful words from Paulo Coelho; "Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused."
