What is Love?

:iconcynicalpsychic:

What is love to you? Is it desire? A consuming passion? Is it devotion? A commitment not to give up? Is it understanding? Something that goes deeper than the surface? What are your thoughts?

A heated burning desire that with time slowly simmers down to a peaceful and comforting warmth. Sometimes it heats back up, then goes down again.

That's an interesting way to look at it, but in my own experience, I've seen the opposite happen :)

Love is when dopamine is released near a person. Not just any person though, a person who you're happy around, that you find aesthetically pleasing. You don't have to know them for too long to get that feeling either.

Or maybe :iconcadanceplz:
She specializes in love-based spells. With a wave of her horn, two nearby individuals involved in a domestic dispute immediately forget what they were arguing about, or even that they were arguing in the first place. Her wedding gets crashed by an invading army of shapeshifting parasites that literally eat love.

I'd also like to note that in a separate episode, three kids poisoned their teacher with a love potion.

Living among ponies can be dangerous.

Love is an asshole. A mess of emotions which force you to do idiotic things.

Yes.. I am very bitter.

Yeah, there was. Fell in love with a girl from another country. So obviously it was already set up for a fail. I thought I could tough it out, but then came the jealousy and anger and sadness. A lot of unpleasant emotions... Caused by love.

A man love : no matter what happened to you , he will not leave you alone.
A woman love : no matter she is angry from you , she will stick around.

BABY DON'T HURT ME

Ok joking. Love is something I never think about, almost like love never existed. You say the word but you never really thought you did.

It's been years since I said "I love you" to anyone. I see a lot of people with their eyes stick on an television screen these days for so long that If you tried to snap them out of it, they won't respond immediately. So you guys are dead to me. Sorry.

I'm not available.

umm well that depends....
love as in you are romantically in love?
or the love you have for your parents and friends?
or the love/passion you have for something else like an activity or a hobby ect?
its all love. but at the same time. it gives off different feelings.

when it comes to romantic love...its just an addiction. like smoking. trust me science has proved it. just a lot of chemical reactions happening in your body and so on.
you have found someone you can relate to and all that i cant explain the feeling of why you fall in love cause im 90% aromantic....but! it could also be mistaken for sexual attraction, I believe. if you are only in love with the person because you like the way the dress, look, talk ect...its not hard to understand why relationships like that doesnt last for very long.
at least that is what I have heard from friends "ah he is so hot" "omg look at her hair, her face the way she walk" and all that. you fancy a person. but when you get together and get to know teacher you find out that this person isnt really how you though s/he would be like. :/

A very thorough answer, which brings to light the question of what is the difference between infatuation and love.
Reply
:icontsunarulu:
tsunarulu Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Student Digital Artist
infatuation (never heard that word before I had to google it and out of the definitions stated this is what I think:)
is when you are addicted to someone (or something...some rare people fall in love with things too)so badly..you think about them all the time. you want to hold hands..kiss and have sex be with them be happy, see them smile, see them being successful, being all cheesy with each other. you get all carried away. over-valuing the beloved. in your eyes they are perfect. you fancy them, fantasize about them. they turn you on and you feel all fuzzy inside. you come up with all these...excuses for their negative parts. often you refuse to see the bad in them. but everybody has their bad side, and it will show off sooner or later. and that's when you usually wake up, realizing that this person isnt all that person you thought this person was.

love in itself is just deeply caring for someone. it can be anyone. you can love your friend or family..without being "in love" you just care for them. you want them to be happy. you want to make them happy and proud. you just want them to be happy and alright. and you want to spend time with them because they "entertain you with their presence" you feel like you can relax around them. and relate and so on.

first it's the most beautiful thing. and then comes the jealousy, and he doesn't care, doesn't call, and bam, suddenly it becomes pain..
