What Is Love ? - Dave's views

Love is wanting the best for the other person. Love is not possessing but liberating. Love is enthusiastically giving maximum emotional, spiritual and physical enjoyment to the other person. Many people think love IS sex, but are often unfulfilled and wonder why. Women especially seek more intimacy and love in their sexuality. Sex is more than "ready, brace yourself," as one woman explained her husband's foreplay.

For CHRISTIANS loving intimacy is the social, emotional, spiritual and physical/sexual sharing of oneself in a giving way which follows the biblical call to regard others as better than oneself, i.e. following the law of love--God, neighbor, self. Too often Christians are so much into the legalism of religion that they forget Christ's teaching of love as paramount. This legalism is often based on guilt and shame about sex and not on the Scriptures.

What is Love? It's the opposite of the Golden Rule! You have heard it said treat others as you would want to be treated. But I say love is to treat others as THEY WANT to be treated.

Love is wanting the best for another. You love them so much, you happily give him/her to another, if the person can achieve the greatest spiritual, emotional and physical fulfillment with someone else. This is the opposite of jealousy that wants selfishly for our own needs rather than the best for the one we love!

Love is INTIMACY.....Into Me I See..letting other see into me by being totally open and honest about feelings. It's sharing yourself spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically.

Sexuality is the most powerful physical expression of love when done seeking the max pleasure for the other not just self. But you can also have lots of sex without love or intimacy. Women often realize this difference more than men. Women tend to want love but have to settle for sex. Men often want just physical sex not being trained or experienced in more sincere intimacy and love.

Love can be shared with a stranger you just met or your lifelong partner. Love is action, romance is a feeling. Love can last forever, even if you are not often with each other.
