What Is Love?
If we truly love a person, we love them for exactly who they are. Real love is to want the happiness of the other, as cliché as it may sound. You do not love someone because of what he or she can give you, but because of who he/she is. In this kind of love, you have more reasons to feel strongly for your significant other, to feel joy in his or her company. A profound kind of love is rooted in the object of your affection, over their qualities and flaws.
To love in such a way implies a free choice: it is to decide to love that person, and to commit yourself to him or her. You cannot love truly without giving some of your freedom to that person. And of course, we expect that is going to be reciprocated because this is the condition of a relationship. Finding the happiness of the one you love is adding up to your own happiness.
