What is Love?

Is love a physiological or hormonal endorphins used by your body to attempt to help you procreate? Is it more?

When one "feels" love what does that mean to us, is it a good thing? Does it make us a better person? With this in mind who does one fall out of love if one knows not what love is in the first place?

Though I pose these questions I have my answer, and thus is it as it should be though each must come to their own answer in their own way.

I find that love for myself is the willingness to do for the other person anything to make them happy regardless of the pain it causes you, sometimes this leads to a closeness and an emotional commitment, others it drives that person away due to the "intensity" of your commitment to them.

"All things are fair in love and war." to this I surmise that war is much more vicious than previously thought because I have seen the bitter infighting that happens in what passes for love amongst the people I know, the conniving and backstabbing as each person maneuvers for the optimal position with the optimal partner, lying about what, who and where they are in life.

These lessons we learned in our early childhood about who is important and who is not, we carry into our younger years and on into pre-adulthood, whilst the clicks circle round and round each trying to oust the other and reign supreme in the school. Fend for thyself least they devour you and destroy that which is you.

Love is that which sets us apart from the animals yet we find maternal love and spousal love in primates, wales, dolphins, birds, even now in lizards and some smaller mammals. So if love is more universal than thought what sets us apart? Is that the war which we considered earlier? For no other animal kills in such a way as we, nor do they take without compunction as do we. Love it should be not war but it seem that war is ours no other creature on earth wants it, and many want love, nay need love.

I love in such a way that I would lay down my life for those I love and have been n danger of that in the past and will do so again should the situation arise. My life for theirs, that they might be fulfilled it seems a small choice. Send the troops home and let them die no more.

I haven't read blogs much in the past, but decided today to start my own and read the blogs of everyone I know. I find it interesting, a side to many people that I never know.
I don't know how to respond to your comments above, or if I could even begin. You've defined love and what it means to you. For me, that definition hasn't came yet..........
