Some common ideas, clichés and definition
Describing and defining love……
Defining love is not that easy. Love is a word with many connotations and everyone has their own interpretations. Dictionaries have different meanings for this word. But when I think about it, my mind conjures up images of all kinds of beautiful things that I have always associated with love.
Love is Sharing
Believe me when I say that this is one of the most important ingredients of love. It is important to open ones heart and share – your happiness, your sorrows, your fears, your victories… everything, it really does not matter, as long as the heart is clear. Love is being honest and knowing that the other person feels the same way too, it is sharing and losing ones inhibitions and knowing that the person on the other side will never be judgmental.
Love is Talking
Yes, love is talking. It is about speaking, telling and sharing. After some time people restrict their conversations to discussing bills, children and pets. This is a sure indicator of things going down hill. Bring the spark back by starting a conversation. Talking can help solve matters that otherwise might lead to misunderstandings. Another aspect of that is listening. Talking is useless if the other person is not listening. Learn to listen too.
Love is Spending Time Together
A few minutes spent together everyday keeps the boredom away. I just made this up right now, but it is because I feel there is nothing like time invested in a relationship…believe me, it pays! Heavy work schedule takes up much time and effort, so it is important to get things into perspective. Spending time with each other will let you understand the other person better, help you know them better. And I believe that it gives the relation a different feel.
Love is Trust and Respect
When you love someone, you have to trust them. Love without trust is not possible. When you open your heart to someone, you have to trust them to take care of it, forever. Trust means that you have the confidence in the other person that they will keep their promises, be faithful and be there for you always.
Love is Faithfulness
To love means to be true, to love unconditionally means to give with all your heart to one, and only one. Being faithful in a relationship is very important, in love… it is the next thing to trust. Love is when you realize that that person is the best thing that has happened to you and you want to cherish that person and the moments spent with them, till death do you part.
Love is Being Friends
Love is being friends with each other. Enjoying simple pleasures in life like shopping, catching a movie or watching television at home, apart from a host of other things that “Friends” normally do! You have to tell them your secrets and keep theirs, be there for each other, and respect and trust each other.
And, as clichéd as this may sound… Love is looking together in the same direction, having the same goals and taking steps in that direction to make them come true.
“Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.” D. H. Lawrence:
Describing and defining sex……
“It’s not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on.” declared Marilyn Monroe illustrating her wonderful sense of humour. Kevin Costner suggested “Sex and golf are the two things you can enjoy even if you’re not good at them.” And let’s not forget Ken Hammond who once remarked “What’s the three words you never want to hear while making love? ‘Honey, I’m home’.”
Most everyone enjoys reading quotes about sex. We delight in reading them because they are so often uncomfortably true. Sex quotes often convey an embedded message that we know to be true but are often afraid or unwilling to utter in public. Without a doubt few things can spice up a conversation about sex or sexuality more than a well-chosen sex quote or definitions.
Perhaps sex is better than logic, but it is a strange theory difficult to prove. Carl William Brown
Love may be a matter of chemistry, but sex is certainly a matter of physics. Carl William Brown
Science is a lot like sex. Sometimes something useful comes of it, but that’s not the reason we’re doing it. Richard Feynman
Sex is one of the nine reasons for reincarnation…The other eight are unimportant. Henry Miller
Marriage is a great institution, but I’m not ready for an institution yet. Mae West
Sex is a body-contact sport. It is safe to watch but more fun to play. Thomas Szasz
