"Love" is a word that people have worn out over time. Those four little letters have inspired writers, painters, musicians, and have even aroused the curiosity of scientists. Sometimes love is well used, other times it is abused. Nevertheless, love still gives people a lot to talk about. What is your personal opinion of love? What has been your personal experience? What does love really mean to you? Tell us about it.

Feel free to write your experiences the way you wish. You can use your own ideas, or use the questions below as a guide. In the event you use a question, you should only answer that question. You may also answer several questions in separate entries and allow us to choose the best one for the book. Whatever your preference, only a maximum of 2,000 characters will be published.
