..met in college and then went to different universities 1 hour apart.
after about 5 years apart, we just moved in together in july 2012.
But "God is love," (1 John 1:8), not just loving or a lover, though He is that too.
(That's why He is a Trinity: He is Love; Beloved, and Loving, complete love in three Persons. Everything in Him is love.) Even His justice is love.
Love can certainly be manifested in those ways, for sure, but the real definition of love is that you want the absolute best for someone.
