Exactly. My claim is that there does not exist a proof of the existence of Love (reason why you believe love exist) that can't be applied to God.
And this is your problem: what you say might be true but, if it is, it means that “God” is personal to each person and exists only in their mind.

It could be a linguistic problem. In English, “Love” is known as “an abstract noun”: it describes something that is intangible. In this case a feeling or an emotion.

Feelings and emotions have no real existence – they cannot be put, for example into a bottle or box.

Because abstract nouns have no real existence it is not possible to have anything other than a personal and subjective idea of their actual nature. Any attempt to describe your particular feeling of “Love” is therefore impossible, as your listener will have differing reference points[1]

If your assertion is true, then God is not real but is only in your imagination, or, as we say in English, imaginary. 

Congratulations Luk, you may be the first Catholic to show that God is imaginary.
 1. If you want another example, we can use “Pain” instead of “Love” as “Pain is an abstract noun: it is not possible to experience someone else’s pain, is it? We may know that they say they are in pain, but we cannot know exactly what they are suffering nor how they are suffering. This is the nature of abstract nouns.
We agree Graybeard.
If Love is not real but is only in your imagination, or, as we say in English, imaginary. 
Then
God is not real but is only in your imagination, or, as we say in English, imaginary. 
Will you now stop saying that you love your closest (children/wife/girlfriend/whoever you love) as it is a lie because love is only in your imagination? Will you?
