Kids Adorably Answer the Question: 'What Is Love?'

These kids know just about as much about love as adutls do...

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Jimmy Kimmel hit the street to find out what kids think about loving somebody, and their answers are pretty hilarious.

"What is love?" a producer asks the first kid.

"I have no idea," he says.

Another kid adorably says loving someone "feels like heaven."

"What do people who are in love with each other do?" asks the producer.

"They be gross," a little girl replies.

When asked if Tinder is a good way to meet people, a boy says, "If it's chicken they would probably like it." As in, chicken tender. Oh man; so innocent. So sweet.

Next, a little boy who can't be older than 4 or 5 says he has a girlfriend. When asked what he likes about her, the kid says, "Her hair. She has beautiful toys." Well, I guess that's what it takes in preschool.

A kindergartner says good hair is also the reason he loves his girlfriend.

"I'm not really into that stuff anymore," another girl says. "I want to be single now." Um, what? She can't be older than 8!

I decided to ask my own kids what you do when you love someone. "Hug them, and kiss them," my 5-year-old told me.

"Do you love anyone at school?" I asked her.

"NO!"

"When do you think you'll have a boyfriend?" I pressed.

"NEVER!" she proclaimed. Aww. I wish that were true!
