From what I can remember from a discovery channel video I saw years ago, love is probably a mechanism to ensure that there are two parents to take care of the children to ensure a higher chance of their survival.

If I can find love like I have love for my story, then I think I would feel the need to say it.

Love, the older I get the more I realize I need to stay away from it. My Story is my love, and my dreams keep me happy. If someone can't accept that, then I don't need you in my life

My characters reflect my perfect personality and image. That is love in its truest form for me. Don't waste your time with me, or you would have to fight your hardest for my approval.

I'm in love and have been in love for years now--so I'd say it is if you want it to be.

As unhealthy as I realize this is, and best suited to fantasy, I admit, undying and unconditional loyalty is quite flattering. Don't mind me.

combination of what naruto and nana says.. I think love is feeling happy when the person you love is happy and sad when they're sad. And I think it's also a feeling of wanting to sort of "save a person's life and heart" which I take to mean wanting to be a person strong and capable enough to inspire their spirit when they're down and share their burdens.

It's definitely possible to reduce all of our decisions and emotions as simply biological processes occurring in our brain. In that way, our parents love us only because their brains are predisposed to us - in other words, there is no true unconditional love. We make friends because we are they provide tangible and non-tangible benefits: social status, companionship, and because they remind and affirm ourselves. Or, for example, when we see a beautiful sunset and feel contentedness or happiness or whatever, we can argue that we are only outputting emotions based on inputs - "the color orange stimulates feelings of warmth", "this is simply bringing back memories of childhood", "the radiation provides vitamin D which releases serotonin and dopamine which makes me 'happy".

At the end of the day, it depends on what you consider more truthful. When I am with someone that I love, I understand and accept that my brain is releasing neurotransmitters as a biological imperative to create children. But I feel love nonetheless. I can rationalize why I love someone: they've got a pretty face, a personality that suits mine, or so on, but I still feel love, and happiness, and warmth, and contentment nonetheless. Think of it this way - food's intrinsic value is in being able to provide us nutrition in order to survive. Eat, or die. Nothing more, and nothing less; our bodies only provide us pleasure upon eating to serve as an internal reminder of survival. I sure as hell still enjoy eating though. My knowledge, or "reduction", does not negate what I feel. In fact, it only affirms it.

We are sensitive to the realities of survival, but we act irrationally anyways. Rationally, I would not trust anyone and take steps to ensure my own security or the security of others that concretely benefit me. Rationally, I would pick the job/university major that provides the most amount of financial security. Rationally, I would choose a partner who is best suited for sex (pleasure) or for bearing children (security for when I am older). But we are irrational. We write poems, sing songs, and even promise to commit ourselves to one person for the rest of our life. Our bodies were made to have multiple partners, and yet we still say marriage vows - till death do us part. And yes, cheating happens, divorces occur, and vows that were meant to last a lifetime are broken. But there is not reason to be pessimistic. Happiness exists, even if it only consists of little chemicals firing off in our brain.

I believe in love because love is both rational and irrational, just as I am. If I am an organic machine, then I am an imperfect one, and one that is perfectly happy to be imperfect. Love is what you make of it. I can assure you it's out there, if you simply take the time to look.

Zettel 504: “Love is not a feeling. Love is put to the test, pain not. One does not say: ‘That was not true pain, or it would not have gone off so quickly’.”

Yeah, it's super easy to fall in love. The hard part is falling in love with someone else who has fallen in love with you. Harder still is being willing to have the trust in another person to keep going with a relationship once the "in love" becomes simply happy to be around.

This question is a lot like asking "is it okay to date someone you work with?"

The people who say yes are fucking their coworkers.

Love can be painful, it can be bittersweet, but it can also be wonderful if you find the right person.
