    For years after the death of my father, (I was 12 when my father died) I was searching to belong and to be loved. I found it for a while with a few people here and there. As my life has unfolded and I have gotten older into my 50s, looking back I know I have loved and found love and have a family who loves me. "Love shows up if we want to see it or not. It is in embracing the love that the flower opens. It is in giving love that the birds sing. Being open to love is part of it, and living life in a caring loving way is also part of it." as a close friend has said to me.

    Love is what it is really all about. I look in the mirror and see me.

    Love is what it is all about. LOVE is what will matter most when you leave this world. You will look back and see all those that loved you back.

    Trevin, for me love is something inside your heart, you feel you act and dedication because you love to do it all for someone. You have nice feeling when with someone, feel comfort and complete, no one can change her/his with another person.
    Love with passion to partner/husband/wife is above love to your children or your parents, is different.
    Someone deserve to have own true love in life but you should try to find it. Like Romeo and Juliet, true love for gay is possible. Like me, I think my true love is not for a woman but for a man who really understand me.
    Trevin, Happy Year 2020!
    I believe next year is yours to find a true love. Congratulations.
    Happy New year 2020 to all people who read this thread.
    Hope you find happiness and joy.

    Greetings from hot country on equator!
