Love is a Verb

I found this post I really liked. It serves well at explaining what love really means in a relationship. Here is one of the quotes that I thought was intriguing.

No, love isn’t an emotion or even a noun.  It’s a verb.  Better defined as giving.  As putting someone else’s needs above your own.

Why wasn’t I getting reciprocal lovey-doveyness when we were first married?  Because it wasn’t for her.  It was for me.  An emotion I had in my chest.

What do you think about his definition of love? Does it resonate with you?
