It is difficult to define love, but if there is a word that characterizes it, is the word genuine. To love is to genuinely care, to genuinely like, to genuinely want to spend time with the loved one and genuinely don’t want to lose that person.
To genuinely sacrifice yourself.
Sacrifice, here's another word that defines love. Sacrifice is to harm yourself, or put your own life in danger, or act to the detriment of your own interests for the benefit of another person, in love’s case, the loved one. This is the most noble aspect of love, and at this very moment a large proportion of the world population is sacrificing itself for love.
Love is wanting to spend the biggest fortune that we’ve got which is our time here on earth with the loved one. Time is precious, there are people out there who have very little time available. Take our time and spend it with the person we love is the greatest gift we can give to that person.
Love is forgiving. Nobody is perfect, much less the person we love. And the biggest forgiveness we can grant to the person we love is not a forgiveness for a fault that the person has committed, but forgive that person’s flaws and learn to live with them. Sacrifice ourselves, because these flaws harm us. But still love.
To love is to tolerate. Not everything can be what we want when we want it.
Love is giving a satisfaction for most things we do because when a person really cares gives satisfaction. And to give a satisfaction is to sweeten everything bad that we do to the person we love. Justify a delay, explain in detail an absence, give a reason for not doing a favor that the loved one asked.
Love is caring, take care of the loved one as if we took care of a baby. That’s why people who love each other call each other baby.
If a person doesn’t take care of you, doesn’t care about your feelings, doesn’t ask for forgiveness when offends you or doesn’t console you when you have been offended, if a person can’t recognize how fragile you are, doesn’t bother to make you feel happy and smile all the time, if such person doesn’t try to satisfy most of your whims, doesn’t refuse things that can harm you or which such person thinks are wrong, if that person doesn’t treat you like a baby, then that person doesn’t love you.
