Many times have I wondered if Love is real... (52)

The love of a man and woman, is it not only sex and companionship?

True love is the love between a mother and her children. Animals and Nature can also be a very strong love. I have a habit of feeling sorry for people, animals, nature. This sorry for men then creates feelings in the other parties, and they believe to be in love with me, where it is only gratefullness for getting them out of the hole they were in, but that's my life.

Please debate the point "If love is real"?

Love between you and someone or something else has been love both ways, else it's no real love.

But some think they are in love, and it's just infatuation!!!

right, and I've felt love for a girl many times, but she didn't felt love for me. Very frustrating when you see her almost every day.

Love should be an inseparable bond, where you don't look around at others, or appreciate them, else it's a hoax...

Real love has nothing to do with romance or falling in love. Nor need it be reciprocal.
Real love is given without the need or want for anything in return.



"If falling in love is not love, then what is it other than a temporary and partial collapse of ego boundaries? I do not know.
But the s*xual specificity of the phenomenon leads me to suspect that it is a genetically determined instinctual component of mating behaviour. In other words, the temporary collapse of ego boundaries that constitutes falling in love is a stereotypic response of human beings to a configuration of internal s*xual drives and external s*xual stimuli, which serves to increase the probability of s*xual pairing and bonding so as to enhance the survival of the species.
Or to put it another, rather crass way, falling in love is a trick that our genes pull on our otherwise perceptive mind to hoodwink us into marriage."

Love exists either way...it doesn't take another to love or be love.....however the choice to willingly love each other and be in each others lives is definitely real.....wave

It appears to be a trick of nature, to ensure the propogation of the human race, but that doesn't make it any less pleasurable and powerful to the people concerned.

Our whole existence is a bit of a con trick, with little free will involved.

Heartwarming self-delusion. Without self-control love would organise society into a cult at the feet of a narcissist who loves nobody back.

I believe falling in love, romantic love is sexually driven. I guess it is a form of love insomuch as we can use the word 'love' as a substitute for many desires and wants.
Of course that doesn't mean that romantic love can't, in time, turn into a more meaningful and fulfilling kind of of love for another.
But, more often than not, after the romance has faded (and it always does) and we realise the errors of our projections, we all too often believe we have made a mistake, this person was not the 'one' for me and in some instances the 'love' can quickly turn to hate and marriage into divorce.
Some couples will carry on regardless, almost sacrificing their lives and any hope of personal growth as the dependency they've developed deepens and traps them into a life of comparative misery...we all know couples who live like this.
However, some are aware enough to recognise the 'honeymoon period' is short lived and realise this was just the beginning of a relationship that can move on to something more meaningful. A relationship that allows growth and individuality to flourish...this is when real love begins and unrealistic expectations are recognised for what they are....a fairy tale that never comes true.

Women and the orient, the Nazis. A charmed society going with the flow of dominance. Girl bullying is the most totalitarian all-encompassing form of abuse in high schools those at the bottom of the structure are subhuman.

Nerds struck back at this with science, reason and natural rights. Boundaries.
