Don't let them rile you up, they're just people on the internet.
It's possible to love someone without feeling physically attracted to somebody.
A good example of that would be parents.
Not romantic love, but I don't think most people know the difference.

I respect your opinion that you don't believe in it, but there are those of us that believe in being attracted to someone because of their personality, not their looks. There are those of us that don't see people as just animals, we see them as people first. People have souls, animals do not. We were created in Gods image, we're not the same as monkeys.



There are also gay men who were married to a woman their whole life, and then comes out later in life as gay. Google Jessica Simpson's dad. Or watch the movie Brokeback Mountain.
I don't believe sexuality is "fluid"... it's pretty much fixed. Those fools who lived a life full of lies are not proof that sexuality is "fluid", it's more of a proof that they succumbed to the pressure of "fitting in" in society.

As for your second paragraph, I have no comment.

I believe it's when you have an obsession about someone.


It's cool, guys. I'll burn down this sinking ship; get on the damn raft. Fuck, you, and fuck crunchyroll! Report this fuck you all!


I'm not sure why those three comments were grouped together.

I'm pretty sure echo feels like you're persecuting her.
Basically she took those comments as
"You're crazy, love doesn't exist"
or "You're a nutter"
...and she nuked the account because of it.
That's a pity.

Probably for the best, she seemed to need someone to smack some sense into her.

I'm pretty sure this would've been prevented if I'd commented earlier actually.
I agreed with her more than you guys.
What would've been better is if things never devolved to name-calling.

What?
I said love does exist.
looks like some nasty words went into the earlier pages.

Reading earlier pages helps context.

Obsession is the same as infatuation, I'm pretty sure that's not what she was talking about.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_words_for_love
That'll cover some subtleties I suppose.
I think the point is a bit moot now though. She's not here to defend her opinion, and she doesn't want to be.
I also don't intend to try and substitute for her here.

Well in my defense, I only stated that I didn't believe in love. You can blame the others for name calling.

I would not describe obsession as infatuation.

Obsession
preoccupy or fill the mind of (someone) continually, intrusively, and to a troubling extent.

Infatuation
an intense but short-lived passion or admiration for someone or something.

-google


I imagine long term obsession would be tough to deal with.
I'm not sure what you mean then.

Wow... And this thread started with a completely innocent topic. I didn't actually think a discussion on "if love exists" could turn into this. I've seen worse, but if you figure out she's sensitive about the subject don't goad her further just because you can.

I like google's definition.
It doesn't imply any length of time and it's not that bad to "deal with" if you like it.

Which you followed up with that lovely graphic. While she may have been a bit naive and oversenitive I still don't think that was particularly nice, even if she doesn't see it.

Obsession?
Well if it prevents you from being able to function as a person I think whether or not you like it is besides the point.
Maybe I think of obsession as a bit more intense than you. I'm talking Gasai Yuno levels here.
For me romantic love can be a lot more toned down than that.
