Writer's Block: The Meaning of Love

What does love mean to you, and why? Have you always felt this way?

Love is a lie. The only way to be successful in love...is to die first. Any other ending will only bring pain and suffering.

Romance novels pretend that love is perfect, pure and good-hearted such that it can stand alone against any evil or any trials and tribulations a person might face. In truth, love is fear. Love is loneliness, and the willingness to settle for the safety and security of whatever partner makes it past the first rough couple of months to avoid those fears of isolation, growing old, dying alone.
