A love that lasts, a love that is romantic, passionate--where your SO is your best friend. The person you share your dreams with, the person who supports you in your dreams, the person who loves all of you--even the not so perfect parts--and still thinks your amazing anyway--and vice versa for all above points. A person who challenges you but in a good way Tongue A person who makes you want to be better, live better. A person you laugh with. A person you share the good times and bad with. A person who is your rock, just like you are theirs. Someone who picks up where you leave off and vice versa. (think Jerry Maguire "You complete me" Hobo Tongue ) A person you take on the world with.

...And I'm adding in Stevil's part from his post "meant to be the love of your life."

Yes to all of the above except the romance and passion mellows with age. Mainly because it just doesn't seem to be all that important once you are free of the shackles of the hormones related to procreation.

Shocking Well, for some (raises hand) it's exceedingly important your whole life regardless of age or breeding capabilities.

Well, orgasms are, but they have little to nothing to do with love. I'll take less "passion" (hormone driven frenzy) any day - I am looking for more skill instead.

Romance without the "passion" - such as enjoying sunsets together or a candle light dinner - are just personal preferences. Some people enjoy it, some don't. I don't see how that has anything to do with love or sex really, I can enjoy this with just friends, too.

That's what makes it true love. If you want to take the effort to maintain the relationship then you love the person enough to do that.
