True love always involves sacrificing your will for the one you love. With out sacrifice, there is no love.

Do you think True Love exists, and if yes, how do we know True Love?
Or is True Love an invention of the poets and incurable romantics?

True love can be interpreted in a number of contexts. I feel TRUE love towards my parents, my siblings, my husband, my pets and some of my friends but the type of love I feel towards each and every one of them is different.

True love in the context of finding what some people call soulmates, I guess a reciprocal love between two individuals can be defined as true love. Here I tend to equal "true" with "sincere". I think I've found that one person that is true to me and I trutfully feel and sincerely expect to spend the rest of my life with. Is that considered TRUE LOVE?

Love is not a "feeling", it is a "choice", it is a commitment. Love has more to do with the other person, than yourself.

When I see the word choice, I tend to associate it with two words...sacrifice and/or obligation. I choose to do a lot of things in my life, some of which I like, some of which I dont like. I dont particularly see the association of the word LOVE with CHOICE.

Love is not a choice, it is an inner feeling that in some instances cant be controlled or dominate it. We either feel it or not. We cant choose to love someone...I would have loved to turn off the love-switch a couple of times in my life, but as most things, I had no choice in the matter. If I could have, it would have saved me a lot of grief and heartache along the way...

i think that though it does exists its open to interpretation. In my opinion it exists and we know it when we have gone through the love is blind stage and have grown to accept all the faults that someone has as being a part of who they were and for that we love them..

If truth is relative, is true love relative as well?

I prefer John Lennon's notion of "real love" - love that's not based on trying to make the other person fill the needs you should be filling yourself.

That said, reality is all very relative, too.

Anne, if it's True Love for you, then yes, it is.

Love, true or not is a desire. A desire for the love for oneself. Much like greed and power; love is a condition of the mind that one can overcome.

Something eternal may only appear fleetingly to mere mortals :

Operation Isa here...

All you mere mortals will just have to come to Montreal in September to meet us and find out for yourselves.

Love you all.
