    Love is a fire.
    But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell."

    It''s not my ear you whispered into, but my heart. It''s not my lips that you kissed, but my soul

    I love you.
    It''s as simple and as complicated as that .

    Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for."

    "I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. "

    The best advisers, helpers and friends, always are not those who tell us how to act in special cases, but who give us, out of themselves, the ardent spirit and desire to act right, and leave us then, even through many blunders, to find out what our own form of right action is.

    "Life breaks us all sometimes, but some grow stronger at the broken pieces."

    A moment is not wasted if a memory is made

    What greater things is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined... to strengthen each other... to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories

    (1) Do I treat the other person as a person or a thing?
    If you go out with him/her because he/she is good looking (a "prize" to be with) or a way out (a ticket to the movies), that isn''t love.
    (2) Would you chose to spend the evening alone with him/her if there were no kissing, no touching, and no ***?
    If not, it isn''t love.
    (3) Are the two of you at ease and as happy alone as you are with friends?
    If you need other friends around to have a good time, it isn''t love.
    (4) Do you get along?
    If you fight and make up a lot, get hurt and jealous, tease and criticize one another, better be careful, it may not be love.
    (5) Are you still interested in dating or secretly "messing around" with others?
    If so, you aren''t in love.
    (6) Can you be totally honest and open?
    If either or both of you are selfish, insincere, feel confined, or unable to express feelings, be cautious.
    (7) Are you realistic?
    You should be able to admit possible future problems. If others (besides a parent) offend you by saying they are surprised you are still together, that you two seem so different, that they have doubts about your choice, better take a good look at this relationship.
    (8) Is either of you much more of a taker than a giver?
    If so, no matter how well you like that situation now, it may not last.
    (9) Do you think of the partner as being a part of your whole life?
    If so, and these dreams seem good, that is an indication of love.

    I can tell.
    Simple = not complicated
    Complicated = not simple
    => I don''''t love you at all
    Such a fool.
    But they would grow much more stronger if life did not break them.
    They will find each other boring soon.
    Again, no offense at all. Just for fun

    I?Tm in Love! (at least I think so)
    You can?Tt eat. You can?Tt sleep. Therê?Ts a strange fluttery feeling in your stomach. Your heart skips a beat when ?oyou-know-whô? appears. You can?Tt get her (or him) off your mind. Just to hear them say your name would send you into a blissful delirium!
    You?Tre in love! (Or are you?)
    As you go through your teen and early adult years, you need to know how satisfying, committed, life-long relationships develop. Songs. movies and music videos won?Tt enlighten you because they usually confuse true love with ?oinfatuation?. How can you tell the difference?
    There are definite signs of true love and symptoms of infatuation. Evaluate for yourself and see if you can tell the difference!
    (1) Infatuation is something we fall into, but true love is something we grow into.
    Our society sees love as something that happens to you, not something you can control.Our culture will say if you?Tre smitten by ?oCupid?Ts arrow?, therê?Ts nothing you can do. But is that really true? Or does that thinking take away responsibility from the individual? Real, lasting relationships take effort to cultivate and nurture. They?Tre not something we fall into. They grow over time.
    Columnist Arthur Snider, in his article entitled: ?oIs Love at First Sight Just a Myth?? (Los Angeles Times, September 6, 1981) said: ?oEzio Pinza sings of falling in love in sighting a stranger across a crowded room in ?oSouth Pacific,? but psychologist Bernard I. Murstein says love at first sight is a myth. True love does not occur in an instant of intense communion, a flash of lightning or a surge of electrical current. The love that arises in those instances is a physical attraction, and while it often leads couples to marriage, it also contributes to the high divorce ratê? True love, Murstein contends, is a decision, and like most decisions, should be made after carefully evaluating the pros and cons of a prospective commitment.?
    Evaluate the pros and cons of a prospective commitment? That doesn?Tt sound very romantic and spontaneous, right? But God commands us to evaluate our decisions and be in control of our emotions, even as a teenager. He says, ?oAbove all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of lifê? (Proverbs 4:23, NIV). If love is really true love it will grow. If you?Tve ?ofallen in lovê? it?Ts most likely just infatuation!
    (2) Infatuation is self-centered, but true love is other-centered.
    What is one of the root causes of troubles in any relationship ?" especially a romantic interest? If one or the other is focused on the self, instead of trying to give to the other, it spells disaster to the relationship. And true love is not being expressed.
    Author Herbert Zerof made this observation in ?oThe Pitfalls of ?oRomantic? Lovê? (Reader?Ts Digest, January, 1979): ?o[?oRomantic?] love expects too much in return. Whether intentionally or not, ?olovê? seduces couples into making serious demands. Jim loves Betty and can?Tt understand why she wants to get away. ?oWhy won?Tt he leave me alone?? she says. ?oI can?Tt do anything without Jim tagging along, and when I don?Tt feel the same way he does, I feel guilty.? It is easy to press the life out of another when one makes inordinate demands for affection.
    Even when such desires are reciprocated, they eventually become smothering for one or both companions. Partners in marriage must allow space between themselves so that their relationship can breathe. Caring is letting go, not holding on. There is an undeniable balance in living together and, like the motion of a seesaw, one person alone can?Tt make it work. The giving-and-receiving movement keeps it going. To feel special or important to the companion is the wish of most humans. But to be possessive to the point of paranoia is self-defeating.?
    Jesus Christ said, in Acts 20:35: ?oIt is more blessed to give than to receive.? That is a principle that works in all relationships, including romantic relationships. If therê?Ts more selfish taking than giving, it?Ts probably a relationship built on infatuation, not true love.
    (3)Infatuation leads to idealization without reality, but true love includes idealization tempered by reality
    When we are ?oin lovê? anything he or she does is funny, exciting, interesting, or charming! And it seems that this will last forever! The excitement and exhilaration of ?oromantic lovê? tends to color our perception. It pays, therefore, to inject our relationships with a dose of reality. True love will welcome reality, but infatuation is threatened by it.
    Herbert Zerof continues in his article, ?oThe Pitfalls of ?oRomantic? Lovê?: ?o[?oRomantic?] love is unrealistic. A scene with two lovers silhouetted on a beach walking hand in hand into the sunset conveys all the idealism of romantics. But people don?Tt live together that way, except on holiday. Rather, they are at close quarters, where they can see each other?Ts pimples, wrinkles and sags. The romantic vision only separates partners further, since they try to grasp a mirage rather than the real person. The dream must be relinquished in order to enjoy the real thing. Even in 20th-Century America, a nation known for its pragmatic genius, people are beguiled by the magic of love. But finding real love means abandoning the mystique of romantic love. What are the qualities you enjoy in each other? Hold on to those as a basis of contact for both of you? Then love takes on known realities? liking, caring, and sharing?.? Lynn Hummel, of the McLean County ?oIndependent? of North Dakota (July 4, 1984) wrote the article, ?oBeware of Prince Charming.? Here is an excerpt: ?oBeware of Prince Charming. He may be exciting as a suitor, but a disaster as a husband. The No. 1 reason given for marrying a guy who turned out to be a jerk is that he was so charming. In truth, he never changed. He was always a jerk, but who was paying attention to a few irritating little personal habits??
    Evaluating realistically is a Godly principle. Jesus encouraged his followers to ?ocount the cost? in Luke 14:28, and realistically determine whether they could finish the job in following Him! ?oFor which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it? Lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''This man began to build and was not able to finish.''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''? (NKJ)
    So are you really in love? The first step in preparing for quality relationships in the future, is to know the difference between true love and mere infatuation.

    Steps To Installing Love
    Tech Support: Yes, ... how can I help you?
    Customer: Well, after much consideration, I''ve decided to install Love. Can you guide me though the process?
    Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?
    Customer: Well, I''m not very technical, but I think I''m ready. What do I do first?
    Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?
    Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?
    Tech Support: What programs are running ?
    Customer: Let''s see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.
    Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off ?
    Customer: I don''t know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?
    Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.
    Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?
    Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.
    Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error - Program not run on external components ." What should I do?
    Tech Support: Don''t worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.
    Customer: So, what should I do?
    Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.
    Customer: Okay, done.
    Tech Support: Now, copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.
    Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?
    Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.
    Customer: Thank you, God.
