5 definitions of love you don't know about

To some love is more emotional than physical while for others, it is the reverse.

A couple in love

On the other hand, people tend to confuse lust with love. Lust is fleeting while love is way more than just liking someone; it is a bond that is shared by two people.

Inspired by Lifehack, here are 5 definitions of love you don’t know about

1. Love means expecting nothing in return

Love means not giving up on your partner. People have different expectations but putting your partner on a pedestal and expecting them to return everything you do for them isn’t love.

2. Love means avoiding misunderstandings

In a relationship, you try to avoid misunderstandings whenever your opinions and that of your partner are conflicting. It’s easy to jump into conclusions in certain situations but letting things blow out of proportion every time isn’t love.

3. Love means not being jealous

Jealousy and possessiveness has no room where love exists. Rather love creates understanding between both parties involved. There’s always a way to work out issues and move on.

4. Love means not rushing into a relationship

While lust does the opposite, love takes things slow. Love stays even after seeing the bad side of your partner.
