Love is a complex set of emotions , behaviors, and beliefs associated with strong feelings of affection, protectiveness, warmth, and respect for another person. Love can also be used to apply to non-human animals, to principles, and to religious beliefs. For example, a person might say he or she loves his or her dog, loves freedom, or loves God.

WHAT IS LOVE?

Love has been a favored topic of philosophers, poets, writers, and scientists for generations, and different people and groups have often fought about its definition. While most people agree that love implies strong feelings of affection, there are many disagreements about its precise meaning, and one person’s “I love you” might mean something quite different than another’s. Some possible definitions of love include:

  • A willingness to prioritize another’s well-being or happiness above your own.

  • Extreme feelings of attachment, affection, and need.

  • Dramatic, sudden feelings of attraction and respect.

  • A fleeting emotion of care, affection, and like.

  • A choice to commit to helping, respecting, and caring for another, such as in marriage or when having a child.

  • Some combination of the above emotions.

There has been much debate about whether love is a choice, is something that is permanent or fleeting, and whether the love between family members and spouses is biologically programmed or culturally indoctrinated. Love may vary from person to person and culture to culture. Each of the debates about love may be accurate in some time and some place. For example, in some instances, love may be a choice while in others it may feel uncontrollable.

LOVE VERSUS LUST

Especially in the early stages of a relationship, it can be difficult to tell the difference between love and lust. Both are associated with physical attraction and an intoxicating rush of feel-good chemicals, coupled with an often overwhelming desire to be closer to another person, but only one is long-lasting: love.

Love is something that is cultivated between two people and grows over time, through getting to know him or her and experiencing life’s many ups and downs together. It involves commitment, time, mutual trust, and acceptance.
Lust, on the other hand, has to do with the sex-driven sensations that draw people toward one another initially and is fueled primarily by the urge to procreate. Characterized by sex hormones and idealistic infatuation, lust blurs our ability to see a person for who he or she truly is and consequently, it may or may not lead to a long-term relationship.

For instance, Lana is in a committed relationship with Steve and her sexual desire for him is waning. She loves and cares for him, but she finds herself feeling restless and dissatisfied with their physical relationship. When she meets Brendan, she experiences instant feelings of attraction and longing. The chemical messengers in her brain start sending signals to pursue this new man, even though she does not know anything about him other than how his presence makes her feel physically. Instead of working to improve intimacy with her current partner, she is overcome by lust for someone new.

The ideal intimate relationship scenario, some might say, involves a balanced combination of love and lust. After all, lusting after someone is typically an important early phase of a long-term partnership, and reignitig inthat initial spark is a practice worth cultivating for committed couples.

LOVE AND MENTAL HEALTH

Although almost no one can agree on a single definition of love, most people do agree that love plays a significant role in both physical and psychological well-being. Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of love. Love’s role in mental health is far-reaching, but some examples include:

  • The fact that babies who are not shown love and affection in the form of frequent holding and cuddling may be developmentally delayed or ill.

  • Feeling unloved is strongly correlated with feelings of low self-esteem and deprsesion.

  • People who both feel loved by others and who report loving other people tend to be happier.

  • Love can play a role in long-term health, and feeling emotionally connected may help increase immunity.

It's not love versus lust but being in love versus love first. Being in lovers one blind for the real person and accept more. Good sex is part of a relationship. Bad sex good for killing one so is the lack of interest in each other.

We never know what (true) love is because each one of us has a different definition if it comes to it plus these words are too easily said.

Love is life people always says but love is not enough for everything... Love is also very important for our life.. People can fall in love with anyone, anywhere.. I don't believe in love. I believe in a feeling which is comes from your heart ♥ and you believe that feeling is not fake.

Love is beautiful and reflective in the heart of man. We tend to love ourselves than we love others but it is not Everytime. Love is a bed of rose that stretch on a table made of water. It flows and it dries.
