      True Love Feelings, Emotional Feelings Of Love

      By Guide

      The feelings of love we feel come from an initiation of love, where love intercommunicates loving intentions. The feelings of love follow the affections of love by way of love intentionality. In other words, love feelings follow loving actions. Love feelings are felt within our hearts, we feel the love that others touch us with, and our emotions rise in response to the love that we feel. Everybody wants to feel the emotional feelings associated with love, and the feelings that accompany loves euphoria.

      The emotional feelings of love bring us to a feeling of elation, an exhilarating psychological state of great joy. Often it is our ability to appreciate the love that we receive that elevates our emotional feelings. However we sometimes allow our feelings to overtake us in the early stages of our relationships and we actually become infatuated. These feelings of euphoria may actually lead us into infatuation, which is an object of extravagant short-lived passion. These feelings of love, (misrepresented as love), are usually associated to exuberant passion, in temporary admiration. Many times it is due to this infatuated state that people become hurt because they are unable to control their emotional feelings.

      The feelings associated with infatuation are more common among adolescents and younger adults. There are plenty of young women who are so taken by their feelings, and their hormones, that they give themselves away prematurely. They then wonder, and seek to answer the question; If he had sex with me does that mean he loves me? The answer to that question is no, having sex with you does not mean that he loves you. It means that he lusts you, and you lusted him, you had sexual feelings, not love feelings. Unfortunately, our society and it's cultural teachings associate sex to love, when in reality, sex outside of the context of marriage is generally lust driven. It's generally a self absorbing physical desire to selfishly meet ones own physical mania. Sex alone does not meet loves criteria, because love is not self seeking. Love feelings follow love actions, sexual feelings often follow reactions to lust driven desires. We are all human, and we all experience the desires of our flesh, however true love feelings are associated with a deep relational bonding, not just physical intimacy.

      Everyone has a desire to be loved and to naturally feel the feelings that accompany love. Remember though that the feelings come in reaction to the love that is expressed. This means that love must first be bestowed in order for the feelings of love to follow. So for you to be feeling the feelings of love means that someone had to express, show, or convey love to you in some form or fashion. It is at this juncture that many people get stuck, they get stuck on their own self interests, they like the love, so they selfishly look to acquire more for themselves. Kind of sounds a lot like what people do with money right? We all battle with inward selfishness and our culture teaches us that more is better, (more for ourselves). Love does not seek it's own desires, it looks to fulfill the needs of others.

      If you are feeling the feelings of love, wouldn't you want to know that your spouse or partner is also having those same feelings? Love begins by presentation, show love to your husband, give love to your wife, and they too will enjoy the feelings of love. There are many people who ask the question; how do I get my husband to love me? or.. How do I get my girlfriend to love me? Simply, start with your own loving behavior, quit thinking about what you want to receive and start giving love to them. Ignite their love feelings, and thus the responses to love, by your own initiation. Make love a habit, you can not spread love onto others and not receive it yourself. Kiss me and kiss me again, for your love is sweeter than wine. Song Of Songs 1:2

      Intention is multiplied by action, act your way into a loving behavior and you will accomplish loving feelings. Execute love, seek to satisfy the needs of your wife, girlfriend, husband, or boyfriend. Provide love an opening to bring about those feelings of love. Supply love like oxygen, and the love feelings will follow. We must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words. 1 John 3:18

      But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

      This is my prayer for you: that your love will grow more and more, and that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love. Philippians 1:9

        My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 years now and i love him very much and deeper than when we first started out our relationship; the problem now is he won’t tell me he loves me and i repeatedly and continue to tell him, i wash his feet cook meals for him, take care of the children, put my whole life into making this work and every time he doesn’t tell me in return I feel hallow rejected and unloved and I keep saying it.. but i’m at a road where i feel i should quit but my bleeding heart still wants to give it a chance… just 2 months ago he’s had an outside affair with a lady in his platoon but my spirit warned me and I asked him outright about it and he told me the truth said it wasn’t sexual and it only lasted 12 days from the time i asked him (we had been separated 2 months for his training in the military. we are back together he provides for the family and we still have sexual relations when i initiate but he will not tell me he loves me… I stay at home with our two children 1 &; 2 and sometimes i feel i will lose my mind why am i doing this! I am only 24 and he’s 36… Sometimes walking seems like the answer but i know god will not have me do that! please help

        Answer: You can not get from other’s what they do not have to give. The issue here is far deeper than him not saying those precious 3 words to you. I will contact you about this, hopefully your email is correct.

        I am 30 yrs old now, still in love with the guy I met when I was 17 years old. we are not together because he is outside the country, even if he was here I do not think we would be together. there is a lot of complications, but the sure thing is we love each other.

        He was dating my best friend, when we felt in love and he was also my brother’s best friend, so we kept our relationship a secret. But now we deeply in love with each other, just do not know what to do, because of hiding our relationship he ended up having a relationship with another woman and i also had a relationship with another man, but we kept seeing each other till now. I now realize that he is the only man I love.

        ??? Is seeing each other in a sexual context? If it is, that probably has much to do with the confusion. Emotions are not good at thinking, and love does not seek its own.

        I have been very happily married for 20 years. My husband’s father died last year and with other stress factors in his life he developed depression. The past 9 months have been extremely difficult especially when I found out he was having an affair with a work colleague, this had only been going on for 3 months. Although we are still together and trying to repair the damage to our relationship he says he has no feelings of love for me and hasn’t since the depression started before Christmas. Is this normal with depression? he wants me but seems to have lost these feelings. I still love him and he knows this, will these feelings come back?

        Answer: Love is a choice, love is a action, and the Feelings follow the actions of love. Men are not women, they are different and 53% of America right now is dealing with some form of emotional disturbance. Now, since 53% is above 50%, that makes those in the 53% area normal. I would be careful about labeling anyone with clinical terms such as depression, as soon as you label someone with a term such as that, they take it like bad medicine and go around believing it 24/7. However, the best therapist is named Jesus, and if you really want to restore your marriage, you will spend time with Him.

        My boyfriend and i have been living together four years. In order for him to feel that i love him he he requires touching, kissing, and holding. We have had some pretty serious arguments and have both said hurtful things we did not mean out of anger. He continues to bring up my failures of the not loving him the way that he needs me to love him almost daily. I am a very live in the moment type of person and i dont like to judge or analyze everything that is said or done. He on the other hand analyzes almost everything i say or do. He knows how to push my buttons and get me angry or feel like i am completely useless and crazy. He is a man of power and control and I feel that he likes it when i lose control because thats more control for him and that really hurts me. I am affraid of touching or loving him in the ways that i feel comfortable because he is just going to judge me or tell me that either its wrong or not good enough. I love him but it is very hard for me to express my love in the ways that he need because of the constant reminders of what i dont do for him, and the failures of yesterday. I feel like i am going crazy (which he reminds me of also) and not sure i can ever do anything right when it comes to loving.

        Answer: Sounds like quite a few issues going on in this relationship. Sounds like he is seeking motherly love, that he is focused on himself, and he manipulates and controls you through belittling in attempts to get his desires met. Sounds like too much of the “ME” word and not enough of the “YOU” word. Love focuses outwardly and is not self consuming. You are not married, he can cry all he wants to get what he wants and you are probably trying to live up to his expectations. Your in this thing backwards and may be allowing yourself to be used and manipulated. You might try to gain some understanding by finding out how his childhood was. However, you have both started a relational foundation that lacks good structure. If a man really loves you, let him give you a ring and a certificate of marriage, otherwise you give away your dignity and self respect….. and many men will take full advantage of that.

        Am in a mere relationship with a girl when she was still very young, now we’ve together for 4yrs and the relationship started formally 2yrs ago. i.e I request we should start one so she agreed. But the funny thing is that, she told me that what she likes doing most is to cheat on guys, and anytime I ask her if she really loves me she says YES, and I keep seeing her with guys, (walking), which i don’t like. If i ask her out she says No. If i ask her SEX she says No and she keeps promising the future. From me she is my first love and i love very much. Please should I wait for the future? am scared to loose her.

        Answer: Well she could be just toying with you, and then again she could be telling you something. Why do you ask her for sex if you say you love her? Love is not self centered, love is a giving thing. I can not give you the answers to your life, you have choices to make for yourself. However, if you ask her to marry you and she says no, it’s probably time to let go and move on.

        PLEASE HELP!!!

        I am a 24 year old man and have been in a relationship with a 25 year old woman for the last 2 and1/2 years. She formerly was my sisters friend. SHe is not a very good looking girl but for me she was the perfect one ever since I saw her for the first time. I like the way she behaved and her jovial nature. I thought of her as a perfect wife and was sure she would be a good daughter in law. She is a very nice person, always supportive although there are times when we fight a lot but i guess no relationship is perfect. My Mom from the very start when I told her I liked this girl said no don’t go ahead but I have such strong feelings for her that I couldn’t stop myself from telling her that i liked her. She too admitted that she liked me. For my parents they are not happy because firstly she is Buddhist and i am Hindu and she is a year older to me. My Mom is seriously upset that I am still in relationship with her. I am these days lying to my parents and sister and secretly seeing her as i cannot hurt anyone. I love them all and want to be with them all. But I question myself am i doing the right thing by being with her. My parents have looked after me so well all this time and they have so many expectations from me. So would it be justified if I was to be with her and break my promises to them. I cannot make them cry. And as they are back home and I am her in US for studies it makes matters even worse. They feel I am being lured by her but in fact I really like her a lot. As we are not under parental supervision we have also ended up in a sexual relationship. I am so confused now. I love them all but who should i choose???? how to make them all happy??

        Answer: First off you can not please everyone in your life, trying to be a people pleaser is very unhealthy. It is also unhealthy to ask others to make decisions for you, you need to make your own decisions as they affect your life. I will say to you that there are issues with regards to your religions, you both most likely have deeply embedded beliefs that are going to conflict. READ THIS CAREFULLY and think about it; Rules without Relationship leads to Religion. Religion will never satisfy Your Thirst. All relationships begin from the source of love, not from religion. 1 John 4:9; This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. What am I saying? Seek relationship with Jesus, (both of you). Matthew 6:33; But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

        um… i dont know where to start i have talked to many about the situation but it all still seems confusing in the end. I just graduated this year of high school and i got in a relationship with this other christian girl as myself also am christian and it was great we totally kept focus on God wanted God’s glory to shine through our relationship basing it on what God wanted not us. This went on for 3 months and everything was good or so i thought she broke it off without really a word through a text and never saying why because she didnt want to and i wasnt going to pressure her in to telling me anything and that if she had come to this decision with God in mind it must be for the better. But why i am telling you this is that were both leaders in our christian community and after the break up our relationship went south not only as friends but brother and sister in Christ. in the way that i made her mad and she wont tell me that every time i walk into a room with her i get the stink eye and the feel of just hate in my heart and this has spread in our group and has caused a hate conflict. But the thing is i still love her and i try to show her in small ways and its so hard cause i cant focus on God let alone anything else with feeling this and i think after graduation she has forgave me but there is still that gap in not only our friendship but in our group of believers and i cant stop thinking about it or her and them dealing with what i leave behind in my legacy for our group. Also she graduated and is going to the same collage and we have very similar courses. But all in all i still love her and i feel a need to be near her if not in a relationship of dating but friendship i have no idea but i believe with all my heart God has something were he needs the both of us or one needs the other and i really need prayers and advice if God puts word on your heart. take care and God bless.

        Answer: People often say they have forgiven, and they may think they have, but down deep they really haven’t. Proverbs 11:13; He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is trustworthy conceals a matter.
        What you feel in you and what she feels are apparently 2 different things. Don’t let your emotions cloud your judgment, Jeremiah 17:9 says; The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? If you really care about her, you will let go, if she really cares about you, she will come back.

        I’ve been with my husband 27yrs. I’ve never been able to bring out his love emotions for me i know he loves me but i think its because of all the things i do, not because he’s in love with me. i feel i took over the mother role in his life because we got together so early in life. i feel as if i settled and didnt find true love. There is a man at work who has given me a lot of attention and we have kissed on more than one occasion and i have strong feelings for him but we both agreed to just stay friends since he too in in a relationship. I cant seem to shake these feelings i get them all the time i know we have chemistry and a deep connection i just dont know what to do? I’m in process of leaving my husband and i dont think having an affair is right now anyway so its better we stay friends but we have gotten together since then and partied together and since then this feeling i keep getting keep getting stronger and i dont understand them what i feel is my heart pounds and i get butterflies in my stomach and i feel very desirable its as if i feel him thinking about me and i dont know how i should handle this. we both want to do the right thing but not sure if there is a chance in the future for us? also he is almost 15yrs younger than me and that also scares me he said age doesn’t matter to him is just a mind set. Help i dont know how to proceed? please pray for me and if we are destine to be together then please God guide and direct my steps! and more importantly please forgive me for this affair of the heart and help me to understand. open doors than no man can close and close doors that no man can open. I want to know your love here on earth.

        Answer: Love is a choice, relationship is a choice, and you already made that choice, but because things have not gone how you would like, and because some of your needs have not been met, you are looking elsewhere. Why is it that we allow the love to stop in our relationships? Why does the other person have to initiate it first?
        You say “didnt find true love”, people often say things like that when there are issues that they have not been able to work out in their relationship. I would suggest you Rent or Buy the movie Fireproof and watch it with your current husband, come into alignment with God and everything else will as well. Also get the book “The Love Dare” and read it. Also, YOU need to look at this, you feel you played the Mother role? And now your with thinking of someone 15 years younger? Do you see a pattern here? If you want to know and feel Gods love, you need to spend more time with Him, going to church, reading the bible, worshiping, praying, and then listening. Finally I would suggest you and your Current Husband seek a biblical counselor.

        My issue lies in not being able to express my true emotions. I have been friends with a French guy, that I met 2 years ago. However, when I went to the south of France with him this summer with 10 others, I have been liking him more than a friend. These feelings started when I had a dream about him the day before I saw him (it was not sexual, but just a dream about everyday life with him included). Since this dream, I’ve just been feeling really happy around him (more than usual), and enjoy his company whilst with others a lot more. We sometimes talk in English together, and also in French. I did notice that he does act in a more-than- usual caring way towards me, I remember one time that I was putting some things in the bin, and he wanted to lift the lid for me, even though it has a foot handle. In addition, when I enter a room he is in, he’ll stop his conversation with whoever he is speaking to, and say something to me. There are other small things that he does, but I assumed he did these sort of things with the others in the group. However, the one thing that really did it, was when we, as a group, were doing some canyoning, and I noticed that I was panicking whenever I entered the water, so I started to stay at the back of the queue. Him and another guy that I used to be close to were the only ones that came to help me, and offered to wait for me when I hit the water, to pull me across. Ever since that day trip, I truely understood that he was a friend to me, and when I’d catch his gaze, I’d smile at him, which he’d respond to. The problem is 1. I didnt want to have these feelings for him, because I saw that it was affecting the way I was around him, so I’d tell myself to stop being silly since I live in London, and he lives in the south of France, so nothing can really come of the relationship, plus I’ll be living in Mauritius for a year. When I came to England, I’d dream about him, one being of us eating as a group, another being of him going to a skiing trip, while I’d go off to teach a class. These dreams seem very normal, so I dont really understand why I was having them. The next problem is that I can tell that deep down, I’m supposed to tell him what’s happening on my part, because when I went to a Christian festival, after being prayed for deliverance from a past sin, I later felt, and still feel that I need to tell him how I’m feeling. However, I’m afraid, and I need advice. Does this sound like it is God ordained? Or just a case of infatuation? I want to stay on the straight and narrow path as much as possible, so I dont want to do anything silly.

        Thanks very much, Joy

        Love is so annoying and unfair does I love so much doesn’t love me. I’m going out with a lady who doesn’t wont to marry me. she loves me, but like me as a friend for the past 3 years, but I love here very much. because she is the meaning of my life. The only time I feel the beauty of life, true happiness is when i’m with she… I’m 32 years and she is 24, all my life I’ve fall in love like this before. I’m now a thinker at night, I’m getting crazy. she thought me how to love and the meaning of love. she has blinded me with her beauty, i just don’t no but i don’t believe in ladies any more… I always feel so bad when i think about love, I feel so empty without her, so useless… I just don’t no weather something is wrong with me and she wouldn’t tell me what is wrong with me. i thought love is beautiful, great and wonderful. is this the meaning of love….

        Comment: Although we all have the desire to be loved, love itself is giving, it is not self focused. Put your focus on Jesus and you will know love greater than any one person could ever give you. Often times relationships evolve from friendships to courtships, sometimes they remain friendships. Enjoy the love of your friendship, seek to appreciate what there is to be appreciated in that, and since there is no commitment, consider making more friends and dating other women.
