How many times have you been in love?Page 17 of 20    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)
I have been in two serious relationships but I honestly can say I have been truly in love with only one person. She is now my ex wife.

There can be so many different feelings of love, it comes with all emotions. But to answer the question, no, I have never been in love. Been in lust once, THOUGHT it was love and then grew up and realized I was only kidding myself and the other person. But it WILL happen one day, I'm very sure about that. Of course it may come years from now, but HEY, I'm OK with that. I'm not in any hurry to find it. My parents have told me all my life that it will happen when I least expect it to, and I truly believe that. So I've stopped searching. If it is supposed to happen, then it will and if not, then it was never meant to be for me to be in love.

I don't know. I honestly don't. I'm not even sure what love is. I know I have feelings that have lasted a lifetime in one case but I was only ever with him brief periods of time. Is that love?

Compare that to my last boyfriend who I told I would not stay a lifetime with even though he asked me to -- and bluntly said "somebody else but not you". That's not very loving.

Yet when everywhere I went I was told to relay the message that he had friends from out of looking for him - even though I knew he had no friends from out of town whatsoever - I put my own life on the line for the guy.

Got a crash course in 'not on my watch' from a chic I knew and went for broke. Is that love? Don't know.

I think the real thing is a future event that, like I said before, is going to surprise me and be my decision.

And in hindsight I just want to say, with no offence to women's rights or whatever, that guys in this line of work should just leave the chics out of it coz IMHO it only makes things worse.

On the other hand, if there are any women who want a right to deal with this sort of crap just like a man, then go ahead...be my guest! It's a free country.

............ I lost count... Wait, do you count that girl you had a crush on in preschool? What about kindergarten? If so, then there was probably one girl for every year of my life (sometimes two) or was that one girl for every two years? I guess the longest period of time I've been in love would have been for 5 years.

i'm not sure if i've ever really been in love

i thought i loved my ex husband, but because of the way that marriage was, the love died a bit at a time.... does real love do that? i know that even when i might occasionally dislike one of my children because of something they may have done or said, it's more the action/words i dislike, rather than them; i could never stop loving them - even if they don't show me that they love me back...

i wonder if being 'in love' could ever be that powerful? as powerful as the love i feel for them?

then there were other times where i've thought i've been in love, but i think, looking back, it was more obsession and neediness or lust, more than love... maybe more the idea of being in love, than the reality of the person (so easy to do, on-line especially)

what a great topic............
I was just thinking about this today.

I'm in my 50's and have been in love 6 times in my life... sorry to say none of those worked out long term as either they or I ... changed our minds !

I've come to conclude I do not pick the best people to fall in love with and made some terrible love connections in the past, one lasting about 10 years.

Being in love and love I think are different things. I made some bad choices based on hormones. I'm older now, hope to never make those mistakes again.

we all think that... don't we? yes I will make a better choice next time !!!

Several times I fell for a girl when I was in grade school I have a bit of a learning disability and she was kind enough to work with me on my class work. We would go out in the hall because it helped me to get away and she would help me. Other kids made fun of me for my disability. I have fallen for several female friends but they never felt the same. Every girl I have ever fallen in love with was a friend first.

I've only had one boyfriend/partner/mate and then husband, and we were both deeply in love with each other for the 17 years until he passed away. He's the only person I've ever been in love with.

I was just reading a magazine that surveyed men and they said that on average, in a lifetime, men have been "in love" 6 times.



Lol, oh really! I must really be below average .


I was only in "liking" relationships never "loving" relationships. I'm sure love only happens in films.

"How many times have you been "in love"?"

Many times. Only twice that mattered much.

Well, three, if you count the One True Abiding Love that I have.... for myself.

Infatuated...about a dozen

In Love...Once.
