with is to love one another. Love is, by far, the most beautiful, exhilarating and mind-
blowing emotion we can experience.

It has its ups and downs it may lift you up, it may bring you down. It might make you the
happiest person in the world, it can also put you through hell. Anyhow, we all need
somebody to love.

In this article we are going to introduce you to some of the most common English idioms
about love you may use when talking about this wonderful feeling.
