According to a 2013 Questionnaire, Denver Singles Responded Like This…

  13. What is the one thing you always ask on a first date?  Tell me about your family; nothing specific, just follow the conversation; what their relationship with their family is and what their friends are like; do you like to travel?
  14. What is your definition of LOVE?  Some answers were:

When there is trust, commitment and both partners are better together than apart;

When I can’t stop thinking about the person…when I miss the person;

The ability to let someone be themselves without judging them, in addition to attraction, of course;

Mutual, unconditional caring for another;

Having someone who is always there for you, someone who you can tell your inner most thoughts to, someone who is protective of you, someone who can forgive and who is loyal and devoted to the relationship;

Mutual respect, passion and commitment through thick and thin;

Good question with no standard answer.  I’ll know it when it happens.
