One person was a HUGE and I mean HUGE Darwin fan, and stated that from an evolutionary standpoint, we are animals. Therefore, we (more specifically guys but girls too) will just try to do our best to continue on the species through reproduction,etc, and that love was more of an illusion.

Considering that some animals have 1 mate for their entire life, I think I may be able to argue that even animals have "true loves".

I believe that it is possible to find your true love and be happy for the rest of your life. I don't, however, believe in only ONE "soulmate". For example, say you find your true love and you get married. Then, that person dies. Some time later, however long that may be, you find someone else that you love as much, even if not in the same exact way, as the first person. Does that mean that the second person isn't your true love just b/c the first person wasn't? IMO, no. I believe certain people are put in your life at certain times for certain reasons. Therefore, I believe that you can have true love twice. I'm sure it isn't very probably b/c most people are looking for true love to be some big grand thing and they miss out on a chance at true love by not realizing that it's the simple things a person does for you that proves true love. There aren't going to be bells and whistles and flashing lights to prove true love but someone sticking with you through thick and thin, no matter what or how horrible you are to them during the bad times, that's true love.
Of course you're going to have to work at it. It's not always going to be rainbows and sunshine. There are going to be problems but the ability to work through those problems and still love the other person unconditionally through those problems is another sign of true love. My mom used to tell me, when she was mad at me, "you're my child I have to love you but I don't have to always like you". I know she was joking but that saying kinda fits here. You're not always going to like that person, some days you're going to be SO mad at them but if you have the ability to still love them at the end of the day no matter how angry they made you, that's true love.
Obviouslly I could say a lot more lol. But I'll stop now and just say YES I believe true love exists. Whether you find it or not, for whatever reason, is another thing.

For those who don't believe in true love, you must lead a sad, depressing life.
