I agree with the other poster, if you really love someone, you are willing to die for them. In fact it is selfish, as you cannot imagine life without them and you do not wish to live without them.
That is a strange definition of love my friend.
I've loved many. I've been in love many times.
But when it boils down to it..to brass tacks as they say.
The ONLY person I cannot live without...is me.
I'll do all I can for those I love and my family, but die for them...is NOT one of those things.
My life is the most precious things I own. It is truly the only thing I own when it comes to it.
And if it is between you and me...I'd do everything I possibly could to make sure it was not me that died.
I'd assume nothing less from anyone one else.
