Love is said to be many things by many different people. Some say love is familiarity with a person, to the degree that you don't want to be apart. Some confuse love with lust. Some even think that love is their desire to be with a person and the thought of a future together. But these things are only called love because they make US feel good. They are entirely one-sided in their love. But true love is not any of these, true love is an action. True love is a choice. To wake up and say this person I will love not because of anything they have done, not because of the way they look, not because of what they can do for me, love says I just love you because you are you. Love is unconditional, truly. Love is always giving, never taking. This is why so many marriages and relationships fail, A lack of true love. When one partner gives and loves unconditionally, yet the other has conditions. The two quickly fall into dismay because of this. So I say find someone who understands love, and how to love. Because without love for each other, unconditional love for each other, why are you together? To fulfill your emotional needs, physical needs, mental needs? This only holds you together till you're fulfilled in Those needs. Then you realize you are only together because of convenience. Or maybe they can't provide you with those things as much as you want, so you look to others to do them for you, and soon you just cheated on your partner. When you live only for yourself, you will never know what love is. When you put yourself before your partner, problems follow. You are to love them as much as you love you. And you can't love someone unless you can love yourself.

"Love is unconditional, truly."
I have only perhaps seen that from parent to child. Otherwise, there have always been conditions. Don't cheat. Don't murder my family. Some condition that if violated would end it.10
I told my ex first time when he came home and was very discouraged and sad about failing at something at work, and thought he was a loser. I said I loved him and would be next to him to celebrate how he’d win next time.1
Love is to have butterflies in your stomach when you think about a man 😌4

Pretty much as you say, and ill add that love is sacrifice. Its putting someone elses needs before your own. Human beings are almost universally self serving, so when you observe someones put themselves through pain to ensure your happiness, you know they love you. Even if that pain means letting go
needs? no, just sacrifing a preference for me.
