What is love? ( No not the old 90s dance song)

I asked the age old question to a couple (ok more than a couple) of my friends and I got some interesting answers. All names have been changed to protect the (ahem) identity of them.

  • Something very crazy... It’s umm what do I say... Feeling made up by everyone to justify not calling what they feel for the opposite sex as lust or an urge to mate perhaps? - Frou Frou
  • Love was when ... Adam stole the forbiden fruit for Eve. Love is when he gave up heavens to make her happy. Love is when nothing else matters. Love is never jealous nor is it needy, but love is insatiable. Love is when you see her go wow! Love is the fire that burns more when in absence. - The Masked Avenger.
  • It’s a simple 4 letter word in the English dictionary. - Skeith.
  • Whatever you make of it. It’s a vague notion to define attraction. - Sensei

  • Depends on who’s asking I guess... - Some Ah

  • Love is what makes a man feel really, really alive. It's positive, lovely and makes no sense at all. - Bengali
  • Love is life? - Cherry
  • Caring. Honesty. Loving. Forgiving. Fun. Sexy. Sharing etc = LOVE – Knight
  • Beautiful at first... but painful in the end? – Bills.
  • Is the attraction towards a thing or a being that defines ones perception of the other and determines ones demeanor towards the afore said.. Resulting in a complex social relationship; be it positive or negative. positive being romantic caring and selfless... negative being obsessive and selfish... – Sunshine
  • Love is what u feel in your heart that gets u emotionally and physically attached to it... um... Confused with lust... love is more like a risk that u get into. It’s just a mind game between your heart and your brain. Sometimes your brain tells u something else while your heart wants something else.
    The feeling in your heart, that u risk yourself for others; your family / your friends or girlfriend boyfriend... the feelings that all comes out FROM YOUR HEART.... not your brain... that’s LOVE... - Wheels
  • Unconditional affection and companionship – Ania
  • I can give you an analogy. Say you want to buy a DVD player...the main purpose of buying it, would be to play DVDs that can be done if there was only a play button on it...without rewind and things. but you would go for the one with the most functions that would ease your viewing experience. Also lets not forget you'd go for a durable one.but I recently found out there is something else too. That there is a feeling... - Twitterpated.

[Love is unusually difficult to consistently define..The word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic pleasure ("I loved that meal") to intense interpersonal attraction ("I love my boyfriend").....So love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection and attachment.]

This is what i got when i searched 'love' on Wikipedia...

love is a theory that tells us that in spite of our differences we can live together

simply insane: nice one ^ ^

The Internal Department tells me this.

It's the most spectacular,indescribable, deep euphoric feeling for someone/something.

Love is an incredibly powerful word. When you're in love, you always want to be together, and when you're not, you're thinking about being together because you need that person and without them your life is incomplete.

This love is unconditional affection with no limits or conditions: completely loving someone. It's when you trust the other with your life and when you would do anything for each other. When you love someone you want nothing more than for them to be truly happy no matter what it takes because that's how much you care about them and because their needs come before your own. You hide nothing of yourself and can tell the other anything because you know they accept you just the way you are and vice versa.

It's when they're the last thing you think about before you go to sleep and when they're the first thing you think of when you wake up, the feeling that warms your heart and leaves you overcome by a feeling of serenity. Love involves wanting to show your affection and/or devotion to each other. It's the smile on your face you get when you're thinking about them and miss them.

Love can make you do anything and sacrifice for what will be better in the end. Love is intense,and passionate. Everything seems brighter, happier and more wonderful when you're in love. If you find it, don't let it go.
One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life:

That word is love.



My cynic department tells me that Love is nature's way of tricking people into reproducing.

love is relative and dynamic.. and you can never hold on to it..

love is when you can be you unconditionally ( with the dynamic bit ofcoz)

love is when you discover and know why you are here
