Edit: people have complained about the length of the post. I will now shorten it to a Twitter-acceptable format:

John has very strong feelings for Sarah but he left her when things got inconvenient. Jack also has strong feelings for Sarah and he sacrificed his time and even put off his promising career to get her through a difficult time. Which of the two men actually loves Sarah and why?


Those who are willing and able to read more can do so after the spoiler cut. I highly recommend reading the original post in its entirety to get to know what the post is about.

it isn't something that is natural, that I know for sure. it's a social construct. people often mistake lust for love or mistaking the desire to own someone for love.


I'm just rambling. I'm too lazy to expand on what I'm saying. the bottom line is, the only real and objective love for me is that between a mother to a child. that is the only real and observable unconditional love that I've seen. everything else has conditions like sexual attractions, gender compatibility, social status, money etc.

I feel as if you took that from a particular holy book...


Love is not really natural for us humans. We are generally inclined to our own desires and are not the nicest of things at our very core. Love is an action of caring, not infatuation, as many purport it to be.

sadly, I have to agree with this for the most part. I do believe there are levels to love. But true deep, sacrifice anything for you (without any psycho twist) love for anyone other than your own flesh and blood is (in my opinion) extremely rare. I also think people settle for less than that and try and convince themselves it's true love. I also don't think you have to be in love to be happy, but I guess that would be a different topic all together. lol

I feel compelled to say an emotion, but feel you're looking for a complex and thought-provoking answer which challenges different theories and definitions as to what the concept of love is. Something about the wall of text but I could be wrong. Anywho, to that I say 3Deep4Me. This stuff often brings out the cynical super logical side in people and gets them to make everyone feel the concept of love may as well be the equivalent of running around naked with 'I <3 Satan' tattooed to their backside. I mean things like 'love isn't real' and 'love is just people who want to have sex with each other' and generally become immensely spiteful. I feel it's like religion in the sense it's one of those topics which never ends without someone getting angry or upset.

Love doesn't exist. It's simply a glorified term for relying on others, which is weak.
