Love Conquers All


There is an image of love, deep inside each one of us. The world around us is full of perceptions, about love. It would not be wrong to say that the word 'love' and the ../images of love are over exposed and oft repeated. Television shows, big-screen movies, music, books, and internet, love seems to be the quintessential theme.

There is absolutely no denying the fact that love is a beautiful emotion and much sought after too. However, in its initial stage love is very wonderful. With time, love and relationships both change. And love, always does not mean a romantic relationship. Yet romance is, probably, the most written about and discussed subject.

Romantic love is a string of emotion which ties two singles together in the bond of love. This feeling is not just based on understanding but also physical attraction. Nevertheless, the physical attraction is a misleading factor in love. This attraction is as intrinsic to two strangers, as 'wanting to be in love'. It is not uncommon to hear stories that two people looked at each other, imagined they were in love, only to realize that it was just pure lust, not love.

Men and women have derived different meanings from the word love. When a man says he loves a woman, he is just trying to capture the emotions of a woman and make her his captive, emotionally speaking of course! On the other hand, for a woman, love means she is submitting her self to this person, for an unspecified period of time which spells eternity for her! Women do not use the word 'love' flippantly. A woman in love is a blissful and happy person who can do anything to preserve the sanctity of her love relationship. Fundamentally speaking, love is an extremely powerful emotion that has the ability to capture anyone's imagination and life.

Many love relationships do not end up in a 'forever yours' situation, but end up in a hate and regret situation. While many people part ways on a bitter note and no longer 'seeing eye to eye', some mature people decide on remaining friends even after break-up. It's true that when a love relationship ends in anger, then the pain is felt for a longer time. You will find yourself comparing your ex to your dates. And eventually when you truly 'fall in love' you shall be able to overcome the pain and resentment you have felt about your ex and truly embrace your new found love and bask in it's warmth.

Each one of us has our very own reasons to search for someone special. For a majority, the reasons may be obvious but for some of us, the reasons are far from obvious. One may look for a companion who will love the person, like there is no tomorrow, while another many be looking for a soul-mate, someone to connect with at the spiritual level. Whatever is the reason there is one eternal fact about all of us: we will all lead an incomplete can not live a normal life, without love. Websites like The Single Network are prime example of how many people across the world are actively seeking love.

With so much effort, risk and heartburn involved in love and it's after effects, why do we bother with love? The answer is simple yet complex, suggests Tom Chapman, the owner of the largest singles network in the world, The Singles Network. He says 'It's our inane curiosity to court the unknown and experience the warmth and wonderful sense of completion it provides us with, even though it may be just for a short while'.

And Virgil summed it up beautifully by saying, 'Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to Love'.
