True Love Is…

A favourite question in our interviews with answers cut straight from the heart. 

Adam Cohen-  A state, a place, a noun a verb, the most beautiful word that you ever heard- A line from Hallelujah, Jesus and Buddha, love is a faded sign that you don’t see sometimes. 

Hozier-  Something tangible & real – to love someone as a human being

MAY- I believe that true love is honest, unwavering and immortal.

Marcus Foster- True Love is… Hard to find.

Caitlin Crosby- SERVICE. Selfless. Sacrifice

Brandon Malone- Loving someone right where their at, while inspiring one another to be more.

Ben Rothbard- Empowering the one you love.

Rayland Baxter- – True Love is… true Love is… a couple walking around their neighborhood after dinner hoLding hands and wanting nothing but each other… true Love is a huge fight… true Love is what the worLd and all her inhabitants are born with… its a feeLing that i cant expLain… its the most speciaL type of excitement.

Nicholas & the Pessimistics- When you would rather have a bad day with someone over a good day without them.

JP Maurice- For Lovers

Yamir- Understanding, trust, valuing one another, and passion.

Mick Evans- Anything you can’t give up.

Andrew Maxwell Morris- Knowing that you are safe and with someone who completes you in every way. Like a blanket but a very comfy one!

Dave Cheetham- Something everyone one deserves and no one should have to settle for less.

Devin Cuddy- Hard to find, but out there, its a journey not a destination.

Zane Carney- A choice that has become fearlessly unconditional.

Matt Costa- A bottle of Brandy and a good guitar.

Lenka- It’s everywhere. Just let it in.

Francesca Tamellini- Painful

David Newberry- Irresistable

Blue Sky Miners- A myth. Love is all around.

Poor Remy- “True love” now that we’re reading it seems kind of redundant. When you find truth, you find love. I think thats true with anything. Thats why love is so powerful, cause its true. 

Augustines- There are many kinds of love. A mother’s, a friends’, a lover, a wife’s, a brother’s.  True love?  Probably being connected with the life you are living, the actual life.  Not the life that is purchased or justified from the outside.

Griffin House- I honestly do not know.  That’s not a sexy answer, I know.  But it’s honest.  I should go look up “love” in the dictionary. That in and of it’s self would be an act of love, to me. Trying to find a proper definition is a great place to begin. I do know this.  I think I have had a bit of an incorrect definition of true love for most of my life. I think we look to other people to fill a big void in ourselves and we think that if we meet “the one” that we’ll feel happy forever and life will be wonderful.  But I don’t think that’s love, I think that is using another person to make yourself feel good.  The closest thing I could maybe venture to say is that true love is unconditional.

How To Break Up With Your Playlist

Guest writer: Kristina-Marie Ross teaches us a thing or two next time you decide to drown your sorrows in your playlist. 


There’s a lot of Asian girl bloggers with perfect hair on the internet who have militarized the ‘How To Get Over a Break-Up’ guide, specifically for the use of millions of girls who just ‘can’t even’. People seem to forget that there’s another really important factor to a severe break up. Let’s forget about the awkward corrections you have to make when people ask you if you’re spending the weekend with said partner, and the under or over indulgence in your dietary habits – There is a very important domino effect that comes with every decent human being in the separation of their bae.

Your every day playlist. 

Looking into things too much? Not quite. Here we have a playlist- Lets say it has 175 songs, average. If you’re anything like me (Which I assume you all definitely should be. Because I am good.) these will be a cluttered collection of songs you have prized, shazammed, over-played and decided you can twerk to privately. They can range from Tchaikovsky to David Guetta, Il Divo to Run DMC, Elvis Presley circa 1957 to Taylor Swift 1989 (Unless you’re on Spotify- In which case, shake it off. Or, roll your eyes at my bad joke and keep reading.)
With the accessibility of music on the move today, and the option to listen to as much or as little as you like- it’s difficult not to pair at least one of the songs on your regular playlist to more or less everything you do. Car journeys, routine walks, hair and makeup regimes- You get the picture. And then there are humans. We now have the capability of pairing a song or lyric to a person, and when you have some kind of particular person (shall we say) in your life, they will sometimes not only link themselves to one song- but albums, entire artists, musical eras. Because, feels.
