Love, it just is. I don't think there really is any way to answer what is love. You just give your heart and care for people with genuine compassion, and hopefully someday you wake up with that inexplicable feeling knowing that your life will never be the same. I believe that when it finally is the real deal, you just will know it, the force will be strong with you and guide you and let things fall in place.
But since I watched Stardust today
You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan is... I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I'd know it for myself. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it's trying to escape because it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange - no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.

And because I am a movie buff
I've fought many wars in my time. Some I've fought for land, some for power, some for glory. I suppose fighting for love makes more sense than all the rest.

If you come, we'll never be safe. Men will hunt us, the gods will curse us, but I'll love you. Until the day they burn my body, I'll love you.

The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

Yes if you love someone you normally feel happy to see that person.
Often our attitude and feelings towards a certain person also affects his or her attitude towards us.
Guess nothing needs to be spoken.
Some say love cannot be taken for granted and it has to be nutured and looked after.
The brains will have to go hand in hand with the heart too; and proper communication.
Maintaining good and neat physical appearance is also useful in love.
