1 Corinthians 13:4-11Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

To me, I want to be loved by someone who accepts me for my flaws, loves me for who I am in the good and the bad. I want to be accepted no matter what. I want to be loved unconditionally, not just partially. I want to know I have my best friend standing by my side supporting me through the good and the bad. To be loved, one wants to be appreciated, and accepted. Someone who wants to make me happy. I think love is someone who sticks by your side and opens up to you no matter what.
Most people show their love through 5 senses. Right now, I can't use all 5. Ears, Eyes, Taste, Smell and Touch. I can use my ears to listen, sometimes my eyes to see. But I can't touch, smell, taste.. and when those components are lost, sometimes a sense of the relationship feels compromised, and you feel lost and angry.
"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down."
- Woody Allen
