A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
What is "love?" I hear people apply the word to all sorts of things, and rarely, it seems to me, do you hear the word love used to describe what it actually implies.
I'm in love. But I'm never going to get the girl. So I'm sort of just coasting, crying, and waiting to fall in love with someone who speaks to me and isn't making fun.
