  • Love is . . . the way the person in your life makes everything better, the way they make things you never thought you’d like fun and exciting. Love is the laughing in the middle of a fight because the person makes it impossible to stay mad. Love is that special connection that makes you exchange a look in public because you’re thinking the same thing at the same time. Love is celebrated on Valentine’s Day but experience 365 days a year.
    Sexy is . . .a kiss that could go on forever and ever and never be enough. A touch that makes you shiver. A embrace that never seems to be close enough. Being in love.

    1. Sadness is missing your contest because this website is BLOCKED by the State of Delaware’s firewall and we got so much ice on 2/14/07 that I had to stay at work and provide coverage so I couldn’t enter…. : ( I love snow, but I officially HATE ICE now.

    6. oh, guys with accents(British, Scottish). guys with dimples, certain guys wearing eyeliner, guys who like to cuddle, and out their head on your lap. Guys who have no problem with public displays of affection, and showing affection for their mom.
      guys who love animals and kids… I could go on and on

    7. Much love for the effete pirate…lol.

      Seriously: Love is what fills those quiet moments between joy and heartbreak on the road to forever. Sexy is a slow hot smile and a beckoning finger for just being you.

      Blessed Lupercalia Caridad 🙂

    8. Love is recognizing your soul mate on your first date…. we’ve been married for 31 1/2 years now!

      Sexy is my husband’s smile when he says he has a surprise for me! 🙂

    9. Love is ….. your husband supporting you
      and wanting to understand, and help you through sickness,and being there for you.

      Sexy is ….. massaging each other, which
      then leads into other things.
      Sexy is….. Seeing my husband in the Shower.

      Sexy is…having your husband suck those same toes when you’re having a good day, making it even better..lol!!!!

    12. Happy Valentines Day !!
      Love is …

      When you love someone you care,not only care about them as a person, but also about their well being. When they are hurt, you feel hurt and when they are in pain you feel pain also.

    13. I want to thank everyone for sharing here today. I really enjoyed reading everybody’s thoughts on love, sexy men and friendship.

      Happy Valentine’s Day!

    14. Love is..When your heart still does that crazy little thing just from seeing your man.
      Sexy is..That look he gives you and you know what he is thinking and it’s not G- rated.

    15. I love this differences between all of the authors views on love & sexy.
      I think Love is my husband who says he loves me even though I’m a dork, clumsy and frequently say the wrong things.
      Sexy is knowing he still wants me no matter if I’m in sexy lingerie or sweatpants

    16. Love is When you put up with your current living conditions So you other half can get through school.

      sexy is when you love someone unconditionally.

    17. Great quotes 🙂 I loved the one from Dee Davis: “Sexy is…an effete pirate with dreadlocks and a gold tooth – who knew?” That’s too great!!
      The vampire chocolate is too awesome!!
      Happy Valentine’s Day all!!

    18. I’m having such a great time with all your comments. They’ve made me smile, laugh, think naughty thoughts, but most of all, remember all the wonderful things about being in love.

      It’s a nasty night out there in the Northeast, but hubby made steak and lobster tail for dinner. Now we’re sitting here watching some television and relaxing while the snow plows drive by outside.

      Can’t wait to see what else you’ll post tonight!

    19. Love is being with someone through the good, the ugly, and the ‘why did I even wake up this morning and when will this all end.’

      Sexy is a ‘come hither’ smile with some naughty intentions 😉

    20. Love is… when you will do anything to make your partner feel happy and appreciated.
      Sexy is… the way my husband makes me feel, even if I think I look too tired or sick to feel that way.

    21. Valentine’s day isn’t just for couples,
      It’s for friends too….
      It’s a special day set aside,
      To say thanks for all you do,
      And to let you know how grateful I am,
      To have a friend like you….

      There have been many times,
      That you were always there,
      Without a moment of hesitation,
      With a caring heart so rare,
      To show me support and friendship too….
      My life has been touched by the Angel in you.

      Happy Valentine’s Day!

    22. I loved all the comments! I like seeing what everyone else thinks about love and sexy.

      I must say the first thing that popped into my head was the move quote, “Love meand never having to say you’re sorry.” which doesn’t make much sense.

    23. Sexy is a guy who can make me laugh and is never afraid to show his feelings…and some sweat in the heat of passion as I sweep the hair out of his eyes is always good too.

      Now what is love? Love is caring, never selfish, unconditional, and kind…something we all need and crave. The kind of thing that makes you want to spend forever with someone and makes you grow closer to them with each and every day.

    24. So nice comments today! I absolutely agree with you all. Love and sex are all of this and so much more. For me love is a man that stands with you not only in good times, but on days that arenn so good. And sex! Well, Antonio Banderas.

    25. Love is a man who is willing to change diapers and stay up with a sick little one. My husband has done this and more and I love him for it. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
