Defining Love

Nobody in this universe can escape the soothing effects of love. There is so much you can find about “love,” in books and novels. Many of you must be wondering how the world would be if there was no love. It’s difficult to even think about such a world.

For Poets

Let’s now try to go deeper into this four-letter term. From ancient times to the contemporary era, the meaning of love has been different for different groups of people. Some of the connotations are also awe-inspiring if not all. For poets, love has always been the innermost feeling of the heart, as most of them would put it in black & white. In fact, some of the most beautiful & realistic meanings of love put forward by these extraordinary creative people inspire us to understand love in a deeper context.

For Lovers

For lovers, this word is no less than heaven wrapped in a four lettered word. This group of people tends to think, create, develop, nurture & experience love the way nobody else can, and I am sure that you would not agree with me more than this. Love for them is the ultimate fantasy that they would like to indulge in till time immemorial. An amazing fact about this particular group is that even the smartest people on earth are vulnerable to become fools when they are in love.

For Business Groups

For the business groups, love only takes the shape of a good or commodity that they can trade or exchange for a price. Thus, love has got the harshest meaning or better to say becomes almost meaningless when material desires take over & dominate human values. It’s very hard for this class of people to think of love otherwise. It’s sad but true. Moreover, these people are the ones who regret the most. They understand the real meaning of love at a later stage when one can do nothing but suffer.

By now, some of you wise people must have been able to place yourself in the appropriate categories mentioned so far. Those who could not need not worry as none of the categories mentioned above have actually known “love” the way it is. As a matter of fact, you cannot define love. In fact, nobody can. Love is beyond any human logic or material presumptions.

To Conclude

Love is an unconditional feeling that makes you accept people or things the way they are. People with body consciousness can never get to know what real love is. If any of you have been able to understand or at least have a notion of what love is, then all efforts put in penning down this read would be a success.

      My fellow reader, I can hardly do anything about it because "truth is truth", It cannot be changed. The problem with all of us is that we expect a lot and expectation is the root cause of all relationship failures of the past, and that of the present as well. That last proverb, I could not agree with you more because one who truly loves you unconditionally would certainly treat you as someone special always irrespective of who you are, or what you are.

      "Love is an {unconditional feeling} that makes you accept people or things the way they are." - I have to disagree.

      The goal is to find someone who (already is) the kind of person you want to be with! You accept them because they are what you want in a mate! Compatibility trumps compromise.

      Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys!

      Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.

      Each of us has our mate selection process/must haves list.

      Each of us has our "boundaries" and "deal breakers".

      There are three basic reasons why couples breakup.

      1. They chose the WRONG mate. (They're too incompatible.)

      2. A "deal breaker" was committed in the eyes of another.

      3. They fell out of love/stopped wanting the same things.

      No couple on their (wedding day) plans to get divorced.

      However with divorce statistics hovering near 50% it's clear that there are very few people who believe in "unconditional love". We all have our "deal breakers" whether it's being cheated on, verbal/physical abuse, criminal behavior, drug/alcohol addiction..

      If you (love and respect yourself) you WILL have "deal breakers".

      "Never love anyone who treats you like you're ordinary."
