02mike 8 years ago love is something that can not be controlled and or mastered. allow me to use water as an example. love is not like a lake, which is contained and pacified with few ripples and waves. instead it is like the ocean which can be calm and beautiful at one moment, but then rough and treacherous at another. In the same way love isn't something that is always joyful and happy. instead love is something is something which must be proven by enduring the good times along with the bad. Also, like the ocean, love is something that can't be controlled or mastered. There is no way to make a person love you, that is a feeling that must first come from the persons heart. You must show your love, be patient, and he/she returns the favor by showing you there love.
