The way I see it, love is something that can't really be distinguished as anything other than the constructive bond between two entities. Its not an emotion. Its not even really hormones, although those are tied into our biology. And thank goodness, right? Our hormones can distinguish your pet from your parents, from your children, from your mate. But love is actually quite blind to those distinctions.

Emotion as feeling the rush of feeling as you see that other person or being around them and feel relaxed no matter what. That's the best I can put it. It's hard to explain

That actually is your biology. The emotional high is a beautiful and wonderful thing to experience, but its only one part in a four part cycle.

Love to me means you've seen all the worst parts of a person, know all the things about them that make you furious, and yet still care about them and want to be with them in spite of that.

It's the kind of love people have for childhood best friends. It's the kind of love a daughter has for her mother. It's the kind of love an old blind man has for his seeing-eye dog.

It's something that is built over time; not something that just happens. It's birthed from moments of shared happiness and shared suffering. It is a bond that is forged and tested by fire. It is always knowing that you've got the other's back.

love is simply put a release of endorphin's, your body telling you to stay by that person and feel good

simple

BUT why do we "imprint" on people like that? what makes someone worthy of love?

i suppose when your subconscious can foresee a future with said person then they decided that we shall, literately, become addicted to that person until time passes or you break up

I see love as a double edged sword. It can simply build us or break us. It can create happiness but also sadness. Some form of love can be defined while another form of love cannot. Love is a part of life and just like life, there's a balance. Love will always have a positive and negative aspect. Love isn't only limited to romance; it can also be within friendships and bonds. Love comes from the heart; not only the mind.

Now go to the Temple of Mara and get yourself an Amulet of Mara. Divine smiles on you, friend. May Talos guide you.

I need to chill.
