5 "Love" Questions
« on: February 10, 2018, 04:09:13 pm »
I plan to start a series of threads that will help us get to know each other, as well as give us one more thing to do as a community. So, in these threads I will ask 5 questions, about a general topic, and all 5 questions will be as unrelated as possible. Once another person has answered the questions, I will answer as well. Since we are so close to Valentines Day, I'd thought I'd start off with "Love".

1. The Beatles once sang "All we need is love", is that true?

2. Do you feel people abuse, or overuse the word?

3. My Grandparents were married 61 years, do you think that's possible today?

4. How do you define love?

5.I love photography, I've done it both as a hobby and a job for many years. Name one thing you love so much, that you could do it as both a hobby and a job.

Ok, thanks for playing along, if you'd like to try out my creative side, toss a topic out there and I will try to come up with 5 good questions.

Some people look at things and wonder, why. I look at things that aren't there and wonder, why not?

Love, Such a strong word.

1 "All we need is love", Oh def true. without any form of love somethings wouldn't feel "Right" being able to say love or you love something really puts a fine line in the sand of how much your care for something.

2 Overuse?,  So me personally i think it does get overused Alot. I love this, i love that, OMG i love this hat. Omg.... Around this time of month is another time of to much Love. I understand love more as a feeling for deep passion twords something of great concern or like. Being able to say. I love you to lets say a mother and or father Its true, But now its used everywhere and not in correct context

3 Is long love possible today? Being honest I feel the answer is No, statistics state almost 60% of marriage fail if there your first one, 50% more after the fact So being on the side of facts and numbers People now and days just dont "Love" Each other as much as back in the older generations **http://www.wf-lawyers.com/divorce-statistics-and-facts/**

4, Define love.  To me Love is the feeling of joy or romance when seeing someone you care for dearly, Or The feeling of excitement doing something you really enjoy ie hobbies.

5, Name one thing you love so much, that you could do it as both a hobby and a job. Well being honest and me being still somewhat young in live 20, Its really hard to say that i Love something really like that for a job/hobby. but if i had to choose i would prob love to as a job and hobby be an author
i used to write in school for creative writing and i enjoy seeing people who cant put books down due to them being interning.

So i guess thats my answer to these questions.

Like this idea here are my answers :)

1. Love is such a big scope of things you could love your dog but you don't love it as much as your gf/wife but if everyone loved each other as much as they did to the ones they love most. I believe the world would be a much more friendly place like the song from John Lennon called "Imagine"

2.I agree with you on this one Dragon, as said in the previous question love is such a big scope most people don't really love everything they say they love if you made a person question why the loved that item, they would come to the same conclusion. its more of a like than a love for 90% of the time people say it in todays world so yes i do believe the word love is overused to the point where its almost meaningless. Although i do think people will grow out of this as they grow older or so i hope and come to the same conclusion as you Dragon. 

3. Growing up with the future people in the world, attending college, and just observing peoples behavior. I don't think long love is possible anymore as sad as that may seem. With the recent development of "Smart Technology" people would rather just stare blankly at their phones and scroll through pictures than talk to there boyfriend or girlfriend, even when they are going on a date or other activities where your sole focus should be on that special someone.Love seems so fake these days but maybe I'm just to young to understand. People are so distracted by the smallest of things, and they blow the smallest of things out of proportions. With the infinite wealth of knowledge, ideas, and other various things. People know too much or too little and they can't come back down from their high horse to look at the world through their eyes instead of their screen. It has almost completely destroyed a generation in my opinion and our generation has only just begun with the technology. I could rant all day about this question but the main point is that there people are way to distracted by other things Long lasting love is no longer possible for the majority of people. My parents taught me well to put down that phone whenever you don't need to use it and I'm glad they did.

4.Love is that feeling when you talk to someone and your like wow i could live with this person and not be annoyed with them.(I haven't found my definition yet)

5. I have been playing the guitar since the age of 7 and although i do go through periods of laziness when it comes to practice i love the instrument i play it while sad, while happy, and every emotion imbetween. I don't think if i did it as a job i would not be famous but i would definitely be happy :)

1. The Beatles once sang "All we need is love", is that true?
Never even heard of this song till now, no clue if its true

2. Do you feel people abuse, or overuse the word?
I don't have strong feelings of it positively or negatively. I don't really experience it nor do I really hear the term thrown around

3. My Grandparents were married 61 years, do you think that's possible today?
yes, as long as the couple didn't rush to get married

4. How do you define love?
when two people have not only an amazing bond but are each other's best friend for life

5.I love photography, I've done it both as a hobby and a job for many years. Name one thing you love so much, that you could do it as both a hobby and a job.
I love watching movies, I used to work at a movie theatre

The Beatles were geniuses, so it must be.

I do think it's abused also.

I guess this is where I differ with you two, because i do think it's possible. I live in rural America, where people still date and do the normal things that couples have always done. In many ways I'm a bit of a romantic, so I guess I am hopeful that enduring love, between two people can and always will be a thing. For the sake of my own marriage, I hope so.

Define Love? I think real love, the kind that keeps people like my grandparents together is actually pretty simple. It's unconditional, and it's being patient. It's sometimes having to swallow your pride, and do what's best for the sum of the whole. True love is selfless, and is easy if it's with the correct person.

This one is gonna be tough, because I kind of posted my answer in the question. Unlike you Quinton, I couldn't play the guitar and be happy, it's always been my escape, so I dn't know if I would want to lose that. Perhaps maybe cooking. I really have always gotten a bit of a kick out of serving people meals, and enjoying them afterwards as a group. So maybe if I had a chance to do something like that, on a grand scale, I could do it.
Some people look at things and wonder, why. I look at things that aren't there and wonder, why not?

1. The Beatles once sang "All we need is love", is that true?
Romantic love, no. I believe people need the more biblical version of the word - love (or affection) for your fellow humans. A thought every now and again and a kind gesture just because you felt like it. A helping hand when you need it and forgiveness when you're too blind to see your own mistakes in the moment they happen. I feel like we've lost a lot of what love can be and I feel like that's what we are all craving. I think we need kindness and openmindedness more than we need love, but it could be described as love in a way. Not the love of a partner, but the love of another human who loves us just because we exist. Because we matter and because we, by being alive, make a difference.

2. Do you feel people abuse, or overuse the word?
I do believe so yes. People have a romanticized idea of what love is today (thanks to movies, songs and ect.) and I really feel like that is hurting us.

3. My Grandparents were married 61 years, do you think that's possible today?
If the right people find each other, I believe it's possible. Rare, but possible. It requires an understanding and will to battle through the hard times where you would rather be with anyone but your partner and then still being able find that love you feel for them even after that.

4. How do you define love?
To me, love is looking at someone and being able to say "I will stay alive for you". Being willing to live for someone is to me much more important that being willing to die for them. Dying is easy - Living is the hard part.

5.I love photography, I've done it both as a hobby and a job for many years. Name one thing you love so much, that you could do it as both a hobby and a job.
Writing. I love writing stories and even have over 5 books plotted out and written, ready for their final write-through. Some day you will be able to find my books on the shelves of bookstores all over the world, I promise ;)
If you want to know what a manís like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

Yep
2. Do you feel people abuse, or overuse the word?
Depends on the use of the word, some people make a bad use of the word and some people don't (if you know what I mean)
3. My Grandparents were married 61 years, do you think that's possible today?
Yes 100%, it's my dream to live and die right next to the person I love.
4. How do you define love?
I have no idea how I can define love, a lot of people I knew told me they loved me but forgot about me really fast so because of that I started believing love wasnt real, but then I met my boyfriend and he surprised me and still does, he showed me what real love was and still does (sorry if im awkward).
5.I love photography, I've done it both as a hobby and a job for many years. Name one thing you love so much, that you could do it as both a hobby and a job.
Cosplay and tattoos, I love drawing and I love dressing up as characters from animes or games or whatever I enjoy, I love the details of the costumes, makeup and everything about the characters, I spend a lot of time understanding the characters and I do spend a lot of money on it. Thought I was gonna say Hyai huh (I was).

1. The Beatles once sang "All we need is love", is that true?

-I think this is true, but in more than one sense of the word. Self-love is the most important because without it, I believe, you cannot fully love someone else. Loving yourself first also opens up more opportunities for yourself as in youíre more likely to try new things and open up to other people. This means more happiness in life overall.

2. Do you feel people abuse, or overuse the word?

-Yes I think people overuse the word. I feel people say they love someone even if they donít fully mean it. Iíve heard people throw around the word and soon after admit they didnít really mean it.

3. My Grandparents were married 61 years, do you think that's possible today?

-Yes I think itís defintiely possible, but is also defintiely more challenging today. I think that if you respect yourself and the values you hold you can find someone who also reflects the same morals and who you care for. Marriage lasts long when two people agree with each other and donít let small arguments come between them.

4. How do you define love?

-I believe love is more than just a feeling, itís a promise to another person. Feelings ebb and flow and if love was just based on feelings, like the question above asked, marriage wouldnít last for that long. Love means to me sticking through the tough times and waiting for the great ones.

5.I love photography, I've done it both as a hobby and a job for many years. Name one thing you love so much, that you could do it as both a hobby and a job.

-I love playing music and trying different types of art. Photography also interests me and if I had more time to develop that passion I would say I might have tried to pursue it as a job. I also used to really be into interior design, since I love organizing things, arranging different color combinations, and combining various textures and patterns of pieces. I also am interested in fashion and makeup :)

1. The Beatles once sang "All we need is love", is that true?

In a way yes. Love shapes and forms people. From babies through to being adults love is so important to have and feel



2. Do you feel people abuse, or overuse the word?

Definitely. Thereís a huge difference between saying ďilyĒ and ďI love youĒ in my opinion. I have told only a handful of people that I truly loved them (to be fair, all are my like really really really close friends). I see all over Instagram people saying that they truly love someone and then breaking up a few weeks later.



3. My Grandparents were married 61 years, do you think that's possible today?

It depends on how you treat each other and if you let yourselves grow together. If one starts growing while the other lives in the past itís not gonna work. You need to be on the same page consistently for it to be able to last for a long period of time



4. How do you define love?

Love is a lucky thing to have. To feel true love for someone is one of the best feelings in the world. You light up when they text you, when they see you. Just everything about it is so magical in a way



5.I love photography, I've done it both as a hobby and a job for many years. Name one thing you love so much, that you could do it as both a hobby and a job.

Probably art? Iíve always had a love for painting and drawing. Makeup artist could be incredibly fun too. I also LOVE watching crime shows so a homicide detective/ forensic analysis person dude would be my ultimate job

Funny, all of us would do something creative if we could. It really says alot about this group.
Some people look at things and wonder, why. I look at things that aren't there and wonder, why not?
