What is true love?
Let's leave high-sounding quotes alone and tryjust understand what true love is and how it differs from an "unreal" feeling. The question of love side by side comes with the problem of the human ego. That's how it is possible to separate true love from a flushed passion.
What is she - real love?
Before everyone sooner or later the question arises: either we do something for ourselves, or we try to do something for another person who is nearby. In the first case, we act selfishly. In the second ... as a rule, too. In order to see this, it is enough to ask yourself a simple question: why do we do something for others? The reasons can be different: we are pleased that a person praises us, we owe him something, we need something from him, etc. And it so happens that we want a person to just be pleased that he smiled. This also has its share of selfishness, but it is just such a feeling that can only be called true love. True love is not manifested in the fact that we expect something or do not expect in return, it's just a romantic fantasy.
In fact, everyone expects at least some gratitude,so we are arranged. The truth of love is manifested in the willingness to sacrifice something for the happiness of another, having received in return even a smile or simply "thank you." And it can manifest itself in different ways. Someone helps an orphan, someone gives a computer to his beloved child, someone sprinkles flowers on his beloved woman. To commit such an unselfish act is what true love means. No matter what it will be, it is important that this motive comes from the heart, from a rush to do something for someone who is near you. The first and only difference of true love from "ordinary love" is that the former is actually unselfish, undemanding, and the second is extremely selfish.
Is there real love?
Look around, look at nature. Birds feed their chicks, animals - their cubs. Do they expect something from them in return? Nothing. But it's just an instinct. Man is given the happiness to consciously commit such acts. Yet I will not restrain myself from recalling one sage. He said that disinterestedness is beneficial. But why? Yes, if only because it can be burned ten times on this, but as a result, to acquire such a treasure in the form of love or friendship, which could only be dreamed of.
In fact, disinterestedness is not so difficultto distinguish. A person simply does something for you. A guy can shower you with flowers, give gifts, invite you to a cafe or a restaurant, and not to drag you to bed. He in this case needs much more, and those who crave exclusively carnal entertainment, patience will suffice for a while. Similarly, a girl can give a young man different signs of attention for a variety of reasons. The only way to verify is to respond. Of course, we can be deceived, but who does not risk at least something, he does not receive anything from life at all. That's why you need to respond to such impulses and yourself do not hesitate to show yourself the same way. Only in this way is it possible to know and understand that true happiness, called pure, disinterested love.
