Simple question.

I've been in love 2 times.

Once with my ex and with my current girlfriend.

How about you Viners?

@nelomaxwell: I don't think this is so simple to answer. For many years, my notions of love were very confused. Protagoras says, though, "man is the measure of all things," and so, today I would offer that I have felt unconditional love that had overlaps with emotional, physical attraction three times in my life. The first person I felt that for has no clue how I felt, and that's cool. The second person joined the Peace Corps, and that commitment to others makes me even more fond of her. A month from Friday, I'm marrying the third.

So yes?

Insightful post by the way. I personally don't think that human's have the capacity to grasp what the true essence of love is because it's an abstract and we are for all intents and purposes particulars or physical beings. That is not to say that we don't have none physical attributes and that we aren't non physical beings having a physical experience, but we are so bogged down by the physical world that we have little time to contemplate the nonphysical.

Makes my post seem kinda pointless now that I think about it.

I was in love once. It was the greatest feeling. Then the relationship ended and…

Well, 2.5 years later I'm fine now. Stronger and wiser than before. It was a life lesson.

@nelomaxwell: I wouldn't say pointless. Socrates (or perhaps Aspasia) believed in teaching others through interrogating the world around them. Your question may lead others to reconsider what they think they know about love. Well done. DON'T DRINK THAT HEMLOCK!

I was married for a time to someone I did not love. Currently I've been in a relationship for the last 10 years with someone I do love. I think I did it backwards.

People, why so maudlin? I think I fall in love about eight times a day, even more so in the spring and summer when people aren't so bundled up like they are now.

Or I'll end up locked in Dread like Dread Scott. (Sorry the line was from a hip-hop song my cousin wrote.It starts with Don't Drink The Hemlock.)

Nope, not even close.

You need to say that twice?

I'd like to have a beer with you someday. You seem to lead a very interesting life.

@nelomaxwell: It was by accident really. I double post a lot when I Vine on my phone for one reason or another and it always does that on the "What's going through your mind" thread.

I usually delete one of the post when I see it though.

Yes,I am currently in love with a girl.This is my first time and I do hope that it lasts forever because the feel of being in love and knowing that someone else loves you as well is extraordinary.

I've liked loads of people really really liked 2 but... Love is a mortal feeling a weakness to be exploited. More pain than happiness is experienced, mortals are weak yet they don't see it. Emotions are pointless there lost may equal strength for the one who comes out on top is not the one who shows no mercy and hides fear but he is the one that knows mercy and feels no fear.

In short- No.

@nelomaxwell: Yes. I'm in love. I've been with quite a few women in my life but I've loved only one. SHe was the most amazing, intelligent and incredible woman I've ever met.
I've loved her and lost her. I wasn't exactly the best partner and hurt her countless times. She couldn't take it anymore and...left me.
It's been more than a year and I still can't forget her.
