Without further ado, let's get started!

  • What does love mean to you?

➵ Love, love love... To me, love is more about those little shows of affection that even blind people can see. Because, sometimes we expect to see presents surrounding us as a demonstration of love or we expect to hear someone saying I love you everytime we go to sleep or everytime we wake up. But I think, love, isn't something that must be seen or heard, it must be felt with the heart and thought with the mind: it is a concept from oneself to another.

❝Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.❞ ― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
  • Why do you think we feel love?

➵ Because, if we don't love, what else we can do? I cannot fathom a world in which love isn't an essential thing. It's love what we live for, isn't it?

❝But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.❞ ― Robin Williams, Dead Poets Society
  • Do you believe in love at first sight?

➵ I do believe in love, in all its ways. But, I don't think that just by seeing someone you can fall in love with them without even sharing a word. But then, aren't the eyes the path to our souls?

❝Those true eyes. Too pure and too honest in aught to disguise the sweet soul shining through them.❞ ― Owen Meredith
  • Do you consider yourself a romantic person?

➵ I'd not say romantic... I'm in love with the idea of love. I dream about how could it be, about what could I feel. I'm a reader. I think that answers the question by itself.

❝I need you, the reader, to imagine us, for we don't really exist if you don't.❞ ― Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita
  • What in your opinion is the best part about being in love?

➵ I'm not really sure but, I guess it's all about feel that you're important, that you actually mean something to someone. And I know we don't need anyone to make us feel safe and happy but, it's not about security and happines. For me, it's more about this wild, passionate love. A love Shakespeare would write...

❝Romantic love is over-rated but that's what we want in life, someone who love us in a romantic way.❞ ― Ann Marie Aguilar

  • Have you ever fallen in love of someone you can’t have?

➵ I've never fallen in love so... You know, time will tell.

❝First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love.❞ ― Maya Angelou
  • What do you expect from the love of your live?

➵ As I've said before, I don't dream of a perfect, idealized love. If only I could feel that fire inside of me, burning my whole body just with a touch, just with a look in someone's eyes... Oh, if I could! I expect those impossible things only novels and poetry can tell, only Tolstoy and Austen can write.

❝Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.❞ ― Leo Tolstoy
  • Have you already found the love of your life?

➵ No, not yet. And, maybe it'll never come, ya know? Because, isn't it beautiful that two persons can create and build a love with different people through their lives? I think it is, that humans are capable of giving love and affection. Beautiful.

❝But what are loyalty and caring really worth?" "To me? Everything.❞ ― Richelle Mead, The Golden Lily
  • Do you think love can be forever?

I do. And, when I do so, I always think about my grandma's sister. She lost the love of her life early -too early-, and she has never again loved anyone as she used to. That has my heart slightly shattering, but also brings me hope because maybe -and just maybe- that love from those books isn't that impossible after all.

❝He will love only once - but it will be for always.❞ ― Judith McNaught, Paradise
  • How do you make others feel loved?

➵ Well, I should practice this one more often. I usually close myself to others and don't let them into. What I really want to do or to say, I leave everything to me. Why? You might think. Because, I'm scared of what can happens if I share it.

❝Kindness is universal. Sometimes being kind allows others to see the goodness in humanity through you. Always be kinder than necessary.❞ ― Germany Kent
