What is love?

What is love?... basically it is two vowels, two consonants and two fools....I might get shot for saying this but its true... when I see a couple supposedly in love I call them fools.. Its not because I think to love somebody is to be a fool... But pretending to love somebody is foolish.

There is no true love in this world anymore.... I feel that love is sacrosanct and it should be treated with that reverence... I know people who have said I love you to a dozen people in the last one year. True love is you loving just one person and pledging your future with him/her... there should be no trial mechanism here as in returning the goods if you are not satisfied. A majority of married couples get divorced and the most common excuse is that, "we fell out of love" and my response is that if you fell out of love then it means that you were never truly in love... why is it so difficult to make monogamous commitments to your spouse?? If you are truly in love you will be able to; the moment you wander away to the other side; it shows the lack of love. The bottom line is that out of a 100 so called couples who are in love, only a miniscule minority of the same are actually in love.

  • Yeah baby!! Sing with me,

    What's love got to do with it?
    what's love, but a second hand emotion,
    What's love got to do, just got to do with it?
    What's love, but a sweet old-fashioned notion.
    Who needs a heart, when a heart can be broken.

    but seriously, given that you don't have girl, one might be tempted to say that this is a case of khatte angoor

  • True love isn't emotion, but knowing that the other person is just as important as yourself. You might be irritated with that other person at times, but you still don't forget that the other has rights, because that other person is so vivid and real to you.

    So you're right, commitment is a part of it, but not a forced commitment.

  • The intensity & degree of love is different with different people at different times.The love you are talking about is between a man and a woman. There are many more sides to love.Sometimes I wonder if there is anything called true love at all.True love is supposed to be all-forgiving and all-giving, the one that is between a parent and child.It is difficult to have that kind of love all the time between two people who are individuals first and couple next.I often hear people givings reasons about why they love someone,but the relationship that binds two people beyond any reasons does reflect true love(?) most of the times.To me love encompasses genuine caring(that comes naturally when in love) for an individual no matter what.Falling out of love is falling out of sizzle & physical chemsitry.When one loves someone one can never stop caring for that person.I guess you will keep wondering "what is love?" until you fall in love.I say enjoy love and blossom with it while in love and dont bother about longevity.
