    I guess you need some love in your life to be happy, but how can you be sure that the one you're looking for doesn't exist? There are billions of people out there. If you have a very specific interest or character than there are still probably thousands of people who share it with you, it's unlikely that you're really completely unique in that sense :wink:

    Mmm?

    Do you mean she doesn't exist because you haven't yet met her?

    Or

    Do you mean she doesn't exist anymore because she's popped her clogs?

    who knows what the point of life is?

    but being alive certainly seems a better idea than not being alive.(most of the time)
    especially as we don't know what happens after death
    everything is mathematical.

    Why rush death? Why constantly ponder existence when you can go out and experience it? Death will catch up to us all eventually anyway, go out and enjoy life, lend a hand to someone in need, start a hobby, do something you have always wanted to do! Don't put all of your happiness into one thing, that includes people! Because sooner or later all things, good or bad, must come to an end. That doesn't mean your life has to end or you no longer have a purpose at the moment you lose or do not obtain something.

    Pondering existence is good once in a while, but there has to come a time where your experiences of existence overshadow your pondering and you let your brain rest a bit and just go out and experience existence!

    If life is a lesson, the meaning is learning.
    If life is misery the meaning is being miserable.
    If life is great, the meaning is being great.
    If life is love, the meaning is love.
    If life is The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, the meaning is.... :-D

    With out love life loses all meaning.

    Without love there is no life.
    Why do you stand around agrueing about the existence of gods and the truths of man while your beloved world tears itself apart with hate, anger, ignorance and fear?

    PETAs best weapon, and greatest weakness against hunting is their ingnorance. They can say whatever they want get people to support them.

    As such, their worst enemy is a smart hunter.

    The Buddha stated that life is sorrow.

    Many other religions and beliefs state this premise as well as people without such religious belief make statements pertaining to the belief that life is sorrow.

    There is plenty of empirical evidence in our lives which demonstrate that our beliefs act as a guide and lead the direction of our lives, informing us of the decisions we make when faced with choices.

    Therefore if one believes that life is sorrow then surely life will certainly present itself as sorrow-full.

    Therefore if your life is full of sorrow then you only have your self to blame for believing in this idea and allowing this belief to permeate your life.

    Perhaps to increase joy, happiness and well-being in our lives all it takes is one simple step of changing ones mind?

    And if one finds that in itself a struggle then welcome to the nature of habit!

    Habit forms through repetition. pathways between neurons become stronger the more they are used and reinforced.

    At first changing ones mind seems difficult

    But over time it will become second nature and an impulse without needing conscious thought.

    Refuse the argument that life is sorrow, keep denying it, consciously seek out all the joys in life from the greatest to the smallest.....

    If you keep doing this one day you will be surprised to discover

    How happy you really can be without even trying!

    Exactly at that point of time !! When you come to know that the one you actually love, doesn't even think for yourself or does'nt even care for you !!

    I can't see why you could say about how love is not present in our world.. How about your family? Friends??

    In my opinion, there are so many reasons to be happy and in love.. You can see these around you and everything, including problems and happy moments, is a cause to be in love with the world.

    love is a myth cause
    people can love each other for years or months doesnt matter but then in a spilt seconds they can love all the feelings they have and look at you in a totaly different way so.. my outlook just live life and love yourself if you dont love yourself you will never be happy and dont depend on the ones you love to always be their cause they are the first 2 leave
